How Soon Can You Microneedle After Getting Fillers?

Who doesn’t want to look their absolute best? If you’re looking to achieve clear, glowing skin and a more youthful appearance, it often takes a multi-pronged approach. Dermal fillers are a fantastic tool for plumping up wrinkles and adding volume, while microneedling tackles issues like texture, fine lines, and overall skin radiance. But if you’re considering trying both, the timing is crucial. So, how long do you have to wait for that microneedling appointment after getting fillers?

When It Comes to Fillers and Microneedling, Timing Matters

Microneedling involves creating tiny punctures in your skin to stimulate natural collagen production—a true skin rejuvenator. While it’s a safe and effective procedure, hitting that microneedling chair too soon after fillers is a big no-no. Why?

  • Filler Migration:Freshly injected fillers need time to settle into place. Microneedling soon after can increase the risk of that filler moving around, potentially ruining your results or even leading to unevenness.
  • Inflammation:Both fillers and microneedling can cause some temporary inflammation. When you layer these treatments on top of each other, that inflammation can go into overdrive, hindering your results and increasing discomfort.
  • Compromised Results:The whole point of microneedling is to boost collagen and improve skin health. But fillers sitting beneath the surface can potentially interfere with the process, reducing its effectiveness.

How Soon Can You Get a Microneedling Procedure After Getting Fillers?

Unfortunately, it’s not a one-size-fits-all answer. Most experts recommend waiting at least two weeks after getting fillers before scheduling your microneedling session. This gives the filler a chance to settle and any initial swelling or bruising from the injections time to resolve.

However, deeper, thicker fillers or fillers used in areas with lots of movement (think around your mouth) might require a longer wait—sometimes even 4-6 weeks. It’s also worth noting that waiting two weeks after microneedling is ideal before getting fillers.

The timeline can also depend on the specific type of filler used. For example, hyaluronic acid fillers tend to settle more quickly than other types. Your dermatologist or aesthetician can offer the most personalized advice based on their experience and the specifics of your treatments.

The Wait Is Well Worth It

While having to delay your microneedling appointment may feel like a drag, trust us, your patience will pay off. Waiting the appropriate amount of time ensures the best outcome from both your filler and microneedling treatments, leaving you with the smooth, radiant complexion you’re after.
