Then you must include this one critical step – sterilising your microneedling cartridge. This step is vital to avoid cross-contamination and potential infection; you must not start microneedling before doing it.
To ensure the safety of a microneedling session, you need to sterilise the microneedle cartridge thoroughly and correctly. Here in this article we outline the simple, yet critical steps in this process.
Why is it important to sterilise your microneedling cartridges?
Safety and hygiene are critical components of any skincare treatment, these help reduce the likelihood of cross-contamination and infections.
Sterilising your microneedling cartridge is an essential step in the microneedling protocol. It ensures that your microneedling cartridge is safe and sterile before you commence any microneedle treatment.
Microneedling involves puncturing the skin with tiny needles, which create microchannels on the skin’s surface. These microchannels are open and can potentially allow for bacteria or other pathogens into the skin, leading to an infection.
Sterilising the microneedling cartridge is crucial in preventing infections and ensuring the treatment is performed under sterile conditions. A contaminated cartridge can lead to severe skin complications. By following these simple steps you can avoid these risks.
