Moisturizing Before and After Microneedling May Aid Healing

Using a multi-ingredient antiaging facial moisturizer before and after radiofrequency microneedling is associated with significant improvements in skin attributes, such as radiance, tone, and smoothness, according to study results published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology.
