I often get asked which skincare products should be used in conjunction with needling, and to be honest I think the answer varies for everyone, so I usually steer away from giving a specific answer. But given I’ve been seeing a lot of mixed messages around this recently, I thought I’d throw an option out there for beginners.

Firstly, What Is Needling?

Also known as micro-needling or dermarolling, skin needling works by very lightly puncturing the surface of the skin using a specially designed tool. This sends the skin into repair, encouraging collagen and elastin production. It also allows active topical ingredients to better penetrate the skin, giving you enhanced results from your skincare products.


Which Product Should Beginners Use When Needling?

If you’ve just started skin needling at home, or you’re new to the skincare game in general, my advice to you is, don’t go too hard too early. If you’ve never really used active skincare before and suddenly you’re needing and lathering on a highstrength retinol, I can guarantee you’re not going to like the result.

Instead, support your skin’s natural recovery process before jumping into the hardcore stuff. Bioderma Cicabio Crèmeis a good option – it’s a soothing and repairing cream specifically designed for post-treatment, so it’s ideal after needling, peels, laser treatment, hair removal etc.

– Soothes discomfort including irritation, redness, overheating & scaliness

– Helps to restore, strengthen & support the function of the skin

– Relieves any painful & itching sensations, reducing the urge to scratch

– Added zinc in this healing formula prevents the growth of bacteria

– Forms a breathable protective film for optimum skin comfort

– Moisturising agents add much-needed hydration to dry, damaged skin

If You’re Already A Needling Pro:

I personally use a lot of actives, but when needling I prefer to focus mainly on hydration (and find I increase my chance of irritation with the stronger stuff). So these are the products I’m recommending for those of you who are already needling experts (you can still apply the Bioderma Cicabio over these serums):

– Murad Revitalixir Recovery Serum 

– asap DNA Renewal Treatment

– PCA Skin Hyaluronic Acid Boosting Serum

– Aspect Extreme B 17

– The Ordinary Buffet
