How Does Microneedling Work?
At Manhattan Aesthetics, we use an advanced microneedling pen that oscillates up and down to create puncture points (micro-injuries). The body reacts by producing additional collagen and elastin. Over time, microneedling helps rejuvenate the skin, leaving it firm and more youthful in appearance.
Manhattan Aesthetics also provides Radio Frequency (RF) microneedling. RF microneedling is commonly known as sublative rejuvenation. It works using the same concept as traditional microneedling, but with a more advanced technique. This type of microneedling uses a device with radiofrequency energy to create a lesion under the skin, causing a deeper dermal impact. Radiofrequency microneedling is particularly effective for treating acne scars.
Am I A Good Candidate for Microneedling?
Microneedling is a safe and effective treatment for all skin types and can be performed on both the face and the body. The procedure makes a great pick-me-up for damaged skin but also can be used to keep youthful skin looking healthy and fresh. Regular microneedling treatments can improve the skin’s health and reverse visible signs of aging.
Microneedling is ideal for treating a variety of complexion issues and can help;
Fight the aging process by targeting fine lines and wrinkles
Correct sun damage and hyperpigmentation
Reduce stretch marks
Diminish acne scars
Treat hair loss (See PRP Hair Regeneration)
During your initial microneedling consultation, your skin care provider will determine if the procedure is right for you and customize a treatment plan to maximize your results.
How Long Does a Typical Treatment Take?
Depending on the size of the treatment area and the condition being treated, your microneedling session can last approximately 30-60 minutes. Patients should plan to be in the office for about 1-2 hours in total. Microneedling sessions are performed by a skilled doctor or medical aesthetician under the close supervision of our world-renowned medical director.
We typically use a prescription-strength topical agent prior to treatment to ensure your optimal comfort throughout. However, we also offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas), a medical-grade chiller, and injectable numbing agents upon request.
What Results Will I See?*
Many patients are surprised to learn the immediate benefits of microneedling. You’ll leave the office with a softer feeling and tighter looking skin. A blemish-free complexion can be seen as your body naturally works to renew skin cells via boosted collagen levels. An optimal outcome from a microneedling session takes anywhere from 2-4 weeks to become evident.
Microneedling is considered a very long-lasting treatment. Newly produced collagen can last upwards of a year or more. However, many patients need a series of treatments to get the initial results they want. Mild sessions can be repeated every 2-4 weeks while deeper treatments for acne scars should be done 4-6 weeks apart to allow proper healing.
Is There Any Downtime?
Recovery with microneedling depends on the depth of treatment. Mild sessions may have absolutely no downtime allowing patients to quickly get back to their typical day-to-day activities. More aggressive sessions may require up to 24-72 hours for recovery. Side effects can include redness, swelling, tenderness, and/or pinpoint bleeding. Any discomfort can be easily managed with ice packs and over-the-counter pain medication.
