Micro-needling for scar, acne, and anti-aging treatments in NYC

Rejuvenation with Microneedling procedure, How?

The process of micro needling, also referred to as collagen induction therapy, involves utilizing sterilized microneedles to puncture the skin in a repetitive manner. The utilization of micro-needling provides an opportunity to treat numerous cosmetic and dermatologic conditions in a cost-effective and minimally invasive manner. Micro-needling is a procedure that predominantly depends on inducing physical trauma to the skin. Studies suggest that needle penetration into the skin can induce trauma and stimulate dermal regeneration.

Without causing any harm, the needles can easily penetrate the skin, leading to the formation of small holes called micro-conduits. The generation of specific chemicals in the skin is a direct consequence of this process, plays a crucial role in stimulating the collagen production and elastin, within the layer of the dermis. Moreover, this process stimulates various factors within the body, leading to an accelerated deposition of collagen at the specific area of application. [2]

Is microneedling a solution for other skin problems?

Micro-needling has the ability to effectively treat a wide range of skin concerns, including but not limited to acne scars, fine lines, moderate wrinkles, skin laxity, pore size, texture, tone, color, stretch marks, traumatic scars, photoaging and scar damage, hyperpigmentation and hypopigmentation, as well as providing deeper penetration of local serums.

The efficacy of MN for scar treatment has been supported by various studies. In the testing of micro-needling for the treatment of ectopic scars, a noteworthy outcome was observed with a significant increase in the production of collagen. The clinical trials, which have been conducted, have provided support for the utilization of Micro-needling as a means to enhance skin texture and address post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. [2]

Numerous research studies have suggested that MN could serve as a viable substitute for traditional treatment methods when dealing with pigmentation disorders that predominantly affect individuals with darker skin tones. Such conditions include melasma, vitiligo, and periorbital hyperpigmentation. [2]
