Preparing for Microneedling
Detoxify and deep clean
At ZL, we believe it is crucial to prepare the skin before a procedure such as microneedling. On a daily basis we accumulate toxins, impurities, dirt, debris, and dead skin cells which dull and block pores. Prior to receiving a microneedling treatment, a Hydrafacial is performed to detoxify and deep clean the pores. Removing impurities from the skin allows for better penetration of products during microneedling and allows for a quicker recovery and more dramatic results. You can have the hydrafacial immediately prior to microneedling. If your skin is especially congested, we recommend biweekly hydrafacials leading up to your microneedling treatment.
Home treatment to support your skins ability to produce new collagen
The products you use on a daily basis are critical to maintaining the results from your microneedling treatment. At ZL, we recommend Alastin Regenerating Skin Nectar prior to receiving a microneedling treatment. The Skin Nectar is comprised of peptides, antioxidants, and botanicals to clear damage and debris from the extracellular matrix. Think of prepping your skin like weeding before you plant new seeds in your garden.
