Enhancing the skin with microneedling

The skin is one of the most vulnerable organs of the body as it is exposed to environmental damage. Skin that has sun damage will often show the signs of aging earlier and may even put a patient at an increased risk of skin cancer. At Dermatology Consultants of Short Hills, patients in the Short Hills, NJ area who are looking to rejuvenate their skin and improve both health and beauty may want to ask their dermatologist about the advantages of undergoing treatments such as microneedling. 

How microneedling works 

Many patients who are told that microneedling might be right for them may have a lot of questions to ask about this treatment option. While it may sound scary, it’s actually comfortable for many of our patients with the use of topical numbing creams and provides noticeable, dramatic results. Microneedling is the use of a specialized device that has hundreds of tiny needles. The needles puncture the skin, stimulating the skin’s natural healing process: the formation of collagen and elastin. In doing this, the skin becomes firmer and patients notice improvements in the texture and tone thanks to the addition of collagen and elastin. 

Is microneedling painful? 

We always want patients to be comfortable during their cosmetic and medical procedures and utilize topical anesthetics to numb the skin. This topical cream lasts a few hours and will resolve far after treatment has been completed. During the entire process, we also check in with our patients to make sure they are not in pain or discomfort throughout treatment. 

Why choose microneedling? 

Many patients choose microneedling as it is a minimally-invasive treatment to improve the skins’ texture and tone, while combating the unwanted signs of aging such as skin laxity and the formation of fine lines and wrinkles.
