Here is my amazon store that breaks down the phases and products as well as below.
I have searched and searched to find products that fit these criteria:
3. Free of problematic ingredients (I'll list at the bottom some to watch for)
4. Full of GOOD ingredients
The Phases of microneedling (dermal needling: using a .5mm or longer needle) are:
Day of/During treatment
Days 1-5 Inflammatory Phase
Days 6-14 Fibroplastic Phase
Days 15-28 Maturative Phase
Day 28 Needle again!
Only use a High Molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid
*Cos De BAHA Hyaluronic Acid
ALL Of these recommendations are serums so that you can layer them easily without a ton of weight. These are suggestions! You do NOT need every single one. You CAN use them all, but try adding in at least the ones with an * at first if you're overwhelmed.
Continue HMW Hyaluronic Acid
*Kiwi Seed Oil
Vitamins A, *C, E
Recommended Kiwi Seed Oil:
Recommended Growth Factor:
Check out this product as an alternative. It is not EGF but stem cells and peptides so very good and affordable!
Vitamin C (stable magnesium ascorbyl phosphate)
Retin-a/Retinol Day 3 is OK
I like the retinol from Obagi:
*Continue Kiwi seed oil
Continue Vitamin A C E
Recommended Copper Peptide Serum:
(this has HA, Allantoin, GREEN TEA, Aloe...a great cocktail)
This one has Niacinamide and Galactomyces which is a similiar ingredient to SKII....I love this serum so much!)
Continue with what you've been using and add your acids back if you use them:
Day 28 (or so) needle again!!
Weekly you can Nano needle or Cosmetically roll/needle. This works on your epidermis. I love to Nano Vitamin C for serious GLOW! You could do that for your vitamin C :))

THINGS TO AVOID WHEN NEEDLING:
Preservatives (there are only a few that are sort of OK)
Humectants (certain humectants at high percentages like urea over 10%)
ACIDS (don't pour acid down fresh channels ever!)
UV filters (not right after you needle but every day after that YES) NOTE! As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.
