Hello doctor,

My question is, when can I drink more than two glasses of wine a day or a whole bottle without it hindering the healing process after my dermapen session of micro needling? And also, because I was occasionally drinking a few bottles of beer after I had gotten it done, does that mean my healing time has to be longer than six weeks? By the way, I did my acne scar regions with 2.00 mm needles.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Alcohol use can diminish wound healing, it increases the blood flow so it can also cause bleeding. Excessive alcohol intake also reduces the immunity of the body which can lead to delayed wound healing.

Same principle applied to micro needling. Micro needling is also a small type of injuries created in the facial skin so that the healing process makes a healthy smooth skin and remove the scar. So if you take alcohol during that process alcohol is going to affect that healing process and it can lead to infection. So I advise that you should completely avoid alcohol if possible.

A small amount of one glass of beer per day can be taken if you cannot control your urge to take alcohol.

I hope this helps.
