Is it Safe for Microneedling to be Performed After a Dermal Filler?
If you’ve spent time looking into aesthetic treatments and ways to rejuvenate your skin, you know that there are endless options available. Dermal fillers like Restylane or Juvederm, is a great option when looking to restore youthful fullness to the face. But, what can you pair with this treatment to help with natural collagen production, while addressing texture and tone? Micro-needling can be performed safely, even after a dermal filler, making the two and ideal duo.
How is it possible that those who have recently had dermal fillers to undergo micro-needling?
Although it may seem a bit concerning to have dermal filler in the skin and then have a micro-needling procedure, they actually compliment each other quite well. “The combination of the “lift” receive with dermal filler, combined with the boost of natural collagen production from the micro-needling procedure, can offer an advanced rejuvenation of the mid-face,” explains Dr. Miriam Hanson, a board certified dermatologist and cosmetic expert at Sanova Dermatology. It is recommended that you space out these procedures and allow the treatment area to heal.
Will the Microneedling Effect the Results of the Filler?
While no official studies have been done on patients who have had fillers and then undergone micro-needling, the general consensus is that as long as the micro-needling procedure is spaced no sooner than two weeks after the filler treatment, there will be no noticeable effect on the integrity of the filler.
