Micro-needling is based on the skin’s natural ability to repair itself. Micro-needling treatments create superficial “micro-channels” to the outermost layer of the skin, inducing the healing process including new collagen production. Micro-needling has been shown to reduce the visibility of acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles, diminish hyperpigmentation, and improve skin tone and texture.
I (Print Name) hereby authorize and direct Gangnam Spa LLC to perform my Micro-needling treatments.
I understand possible side effects include and are not limited to: slight or extreme redness, histamine reaction, swelling, stinging, itchy, tender, dry or flaking skin. In rare instances, hyperpigmentation/hypopigmentation, scarring, or infection can occur. I UNDERSTAND THAT I SHOULD ONLY APPLY PRODUCTS RECOMMEDED BY MY CLINICIAN POST TREATMENT.
Improvement of the skin may also be accomplished by other treatments. Options include laser skin surface treatments, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and facials. Other options not mentioned here may exist. Risk and potential complications are associated with alternative treatments.
Most side effects will gradually diminish over time as healing may take several days. Notify your clinician if any side effects cause extreme discomfort or any unexpected problems occur immediately.
I have avoided the following products/procedures THREE DAYS prior to treatment:
Topical prescriptions including but not limited to Retin-A, Tretinoin, Differin, Tazorac
Abrasive scrubs or other exfoliating products
I have not had any cosmetic injections within the last TWO WEEKS

Prior to the Microneedling session, please observe the following:
•No Retin-A products or applications 24 hours prior to your treatment.
•No auto-immune therapies or products 24 hours prior to your treatment.
•No prolonged sun exposure to the face 24 hours prior to your treatment. A Microneedling treatment will not be administered on sunburned skin.
•On the day of the treatment, please keep your face clean and do not apply makeup.
•If you are taking a blood thinner, aspirin or any other medication that you have the propensity to bleed easily while on, please tell your technician. If you are under a physician’s care and need to discontinue your medication for a few days, always ask your physician prior to each Microneedling appointment.
•If you are planning to receive Botox, make sure that you give yourself at least 2 weeks post Botox injections before receiving your Microneedling procedure.
•If an active or extreme breakout occurs before treatment, please consult your practitioner. Wait 6 months following oral isotretinoin use. After your treatment, please be aware and observe the following:
•Immediately after your treatment, you will look as though you have a moderate to severe sunburn and your skin may feel warm and tighter than usual. You may also notice some slight swelling, both are normal and should subside after 1 to 2 hours and will normally diminish within the same day or 24 hours. You may see slight redness after 24 hours but only in minimal areas or spots.
•If you are concerned about any reaction, please call our office and contact your healthcare provider immediately.
After-care instructions for MicroNeedling Treatment:
