Is your smooth, bright skin fading overtime? It’s natural with aging and the intense conditions and hardships the environment takes on your skin. Thankfully, there are various non-surgical ways to renew your complexion with minimal to no downtime, such as Microneedling.
What is Microneedling?
Using a specialized device, our certified dermatologist will apply the small microneedling pen to the area of cosmetic concern. This device creates several tiny punctures in the skin or micro-injuries. These pinpoint dots stimulate the skin’s natural healing process, producing new elastin and collagen. Elastin and collagen are both essential building blocks of healthy skin. While collagen makes the skin stronger, elastin produces softness and flexibility, contributing to a youthful appearance.
What to Expect After Microneedling
Following a microneedling treatment in New York City, you can expect the treated areas to be red and flushed for about 2 to 4 days, depending on the extent of your procedure. Since this is non-surgical, you can return to your daily activities right after treatment.
After redness reduces and inflammation heals, patients see significant improvement in their complexion over the next few weeks. Microneedling results will continue to improve for up to six months as the skin continues to regenerate additional collagen and elastin.
