Is it normal that my face looks this bad the day after microneedling treatment? Also my left eye (which is a lot more swollen then the right one) feels like there’s something in it. It’s very uncomfortable and it’s a bit red. I would like to know what I can do and if it is normal.

Redness and Swelling after Microneedling

 
Hi and thank you for your question! Yes, having some redness and swelling after microneedling is expected and it might last a few days but in case it didn’t improve or you experience new signs and symptoms (or worsening of existing ones), please contact your provider for a follow up to make sure there are no complications. I hope it helps and good luck!
