Ultimate Facial Rejuvenation: RF Microneedling & IPL Aftercare Guide

Different year, same face—but better! Facial rejuvenation takes a multi-faceted approach to reveal the true you underneath years of sun damage, genetic changes, and lifestyle choices Facial rejuvenation can enhance the look and feel of your skin, but you might not see lasting results in the new year without a proper aftercare routine. 

Luckily, the experts at Pinnacle Dermatology are here to outline all you need to know about facial rejuvenation aftercare. Keep reading to learn more about Pinnacle Dermatology’s top facial rejuvenation treatments—RF microneedling and IPL photo facials—and how to make the most of your session. 

What Is Facial Rejuvenation?

Facial rejuvenation at Pinnacle Dermatology is the ultimate anti-aging remedy. Our team artfully combines various techniques, like RF (radio frequency) microneedling and IPL (intense pulsed light) photo facials, for a customizable, confidence-boosting treatment. 

The benefits of facial rejuvenation include: 

  • Reduced appearance of wrinkles
  • Tightened skin
  • Minimized acne scars
  • Enhanced skin complexion

Beyond the aesthetic benefits, facial rejuvenation is non-invasive, FDA-approved, and requires minimal downtime. With all these advantages and more, facial rejuvenation is a no-brainer for a new year refresh!

What Should I Avoid Immediately After My Treatment?

Maximize your anti-aging benefits with proper aftercare. To achieve your desired results, we recommend you follow your provider’s instructions for aftercare and use this advice as a guide to some “dos & don’ts” to boost your treatment.

Immediately after your facial rejuvenation session, steer clear of makeup until the following day to keep your face clean and undisturbed while the treatments finish working their magic. If you notice any swelling, you may want to apply an ice pack (not direct ice) for 15-20 minutes for a duration of one to three days to reduce swelling and inflammation. 

Additionally, if you notice some light scabs or blemishes after your facial rejuvenation treatment, try not to pick, scratch, or peel these spots. These spots typically occur where an old blemish was, and is a sign of new skin production. Irritating these blotches can create scarring where the blemish used to be. The flaking and peeling will disappear naturally, so just give your skin time to do its thing. 

What Should I Avoid a Few Days After My Treatment?

A few days after treatment, you should begin to notice some results! But it’s still essential you follow proper aftercare to ensure your skin continues to flourish over the next week. Following the days after your appointment, we recommend you avoid hot baths, showers, and any strenuous exercise. Not to sound like a broken record, but your skin must be kept clean during the restorative process, and thermal heat can impact recovery. 

If you want to try new skincare products, wait at least a week after your facial rejuvenation session. Any harsh or irritating products can harm your skin’s healing and impact results. In the 30 days after your treatment, always apply sunscreen and avoid unprotected sun exposure. Your skin will be extra sensitive from the session, and the sun can quickly damage your facial rejuvenation progress.
