What is microneedling?
The team at Dermatology Consultants of Short Hills describes microneedling as the use of a pen like device with hundreds of tiny needles. The device is used along the skin, puncturing the skin thousands of times. While this sounds painful and unnecessary ,it’s actually a great way to improve the skin. Why? Because these tiny punctures will stimulate the skin’s natural healing process, which includes a boost of collagen and elastin production. Collagen and elastin are what give the skin its firm and youthful appearance. With regular microneedling treatments, patients can keep their skin healthy, fresh, and beautiful!
