Minimally Invasive Skin Renewal in NYC
As you get older, your skin begins to lose essential substances found in youthful, healthy-looking skin. With the gradual loss of collagen and elastin, skin can loosen and become dull or rough, giving way to an aged appearance. Microneedling is a highly effective treatment that uses tiny needles to rebuild your skin’s underlying support system and correct many of the problems we experience as skin ages.
What is microneedling?
Microneedling is a form of collagen induction therapy that uses very fine needles to create microscopic punctures in the skin’s surface. This process of microneedling stimulates your skin’s healing response as it naturally produces new collagen and elastin to repair itself from the inside-out.
Why choose microneedling?
This minimally invasive skin treatment is extremely effective at improving overall skin health and providing men and women with several benefits, including a:
- Reduction in signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles
- Lightening of scars (such as acne scars)
- Fading of stretch marks
- Strengthening of loose or thinning skin
- Shrinking of enlarged pores
Is there any recovery associated with microneedling?
Most patients will experience little to no downtime following their microneedling treatment at New Look New Life. Your skin may feel a bit sensitive for a few days, but you should be able to return to work and resume your normal activities by the next day.
How long do results last from microneedling?
Microneedling works best when performed as a customized series of treatments. During your microneedling consultation, we will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan. Results can be visible in as little as one treatment, but your skin will gradually improve as new collagen and elastin is produced over time. We often recommend microneedling be performed as a series of three to six treatments with about a month in between sessions to achieve optimal results. Many of our patients choose to undergo routine microneedling treatments performed three to four times a year as part of their professional skincare regimen.
