Microneedling for Hair Pre- and Post-Treatment Instructions


Before your appointment

To reduce the risk of bleeding and bruising, avoid the following for 2 days prior to treatment:

  • Alcoholic beverages
  • Anti-inflammatory medications including aspirin
  • Vitamin E, fish oil or flaxseed oil
  • Ginkgo Biloba


NO TANNING – spray or sun – for one week prior to your treatment



After your treatment

  • Expect to have red skin in the treated area(s) for 24-48 hours
  • Do not massage, scratch or rub the treated area(s)
  • Avoid prolonged sun or UV exposure for at least 2 weeks
  • Avoid saunas and/or steam baths for 2 weeks to reduce the risk of bruising



Home Care

Until all redness has resolved, you may ONLY use the following products:

  1. Gentle shampoo and conditioner
  2. Sunscreen or a hat to protect your scalp


Unless otherwise instructed by your treating provider, DO NOT use anything other than the above products while your skin is healing.  Once all redness has resolved, you may resume your normal hair regimen.



Next Steps

Expect a minimum of three treatments, each spaced four weeks apart.  Depending on your individual response, additional treatments or a more aggressive treatment schedule may be warranted.  Results and personal responses always vary.  To achieve maximum results, follow the hair restoration guidelines and recommendations.
