If you are new here I hope you'll consider subscribing for more skincare, make-up and general FUN videos! :)) Here is my amazon store that breaks down the phases and products as well as below. https://www.amazon.com/shop/penn.smith.skincare I have searched and searched to find products that fit these criteria: 1. Accessible 2. Affordable 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! Day Of Only use a High Molecular weight Hyaluronic Acid I recommend *Cos De BAHA Hyaluronic Acid https://amzn.to/2VKpUxC 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. Days 1-5 Continue HMW Hyaluronic Acid *Kiwi Seed Oil *Growth Factors Vitamins A, *C, E SUN PROTECTION Recommended Kiwi Seed Oil: https://amzn.to/2W9Bm5k Recommended Growth Factor: https://amzn.to/2W6Vu87 Check out this product as an alternative. It is not EGF but stem cells and peptides so very good and affordable! https://amzn.to/2IvxO5c Vitamin C (stable magnesium ascorbyl phosphate) https://amzn.to/2JQw08b Retin-a/Retinol Day 3 is OK I like the retinol from Obagi: https://go.magik.ly/ml/n74m/ Days 6-14 *Continue Kiwi seed oil continue HA Continue Vitamin A C E ADD Green Tea *Copper Peptides Recommended Copper Peptide Serum: (this has HA, Allantoin, GREEN TEA, Aloe...a great cocktail) https://amzn.to/2YAwQtW Niacinamide This one has Niacinamide and Galactomyces which is a similiar ingredient to SKII....I love this serum so much!) https://amzn.to/2YGFAyZ Days 15-28 Continue with what you've been using and add your acids back if you use them: Lactic Glycolic Azelaic Acid 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 :)) My video on Nano: https://youtu.be/BQ06zp_ty00 The above links are affiliate and if you use them to purchase I will receive a small commission. I appreciate your support of this channel!! THINGS TO AVOID WHEN NEEDLING: Preservatives (there are only a few that are sort of OK) Fragrance Surfactants Emulsifiers Emollients Humectants (certain humectants at high percentages like urea over 10%) ACIDS (don't pour acid down fresh channels ever!) Dyes UV filters (not right after you needle but every day after that YES) NOTE! As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.
