Microneedling in New Jersey
Good skin care is a lifelong commitment. There are a lot of factors that can cause skin issues, and many people encounter them on a daily basis. Aging and sun exposure are two that are impossible to avoid, which is why it is important to have a good daily skin-care routine.
However, there will come a time when the treatments and remedies you have at home are no longer effective. In these cases, more powerful skin-rejuvenation treatments are need to either address specific skin concerns or to provide more comprehensive care. In moments like this, microneedling is an excellent treatment option.
The Power of Microneedling
At Sperling Dermatology located in Florham Park, New Jersey, we offer microneedling treatments using the Collagen P.I.N. device, made by Induction Therapies. This unique pen-shaped device contains a cluster of incredibly fine needles that rapidly oscillate when the device is activated.
Microneedling is performed by slowly passing the device over the surface of the skin. The fine needles create very tiny wounds that trigger the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. Collagen is a structural protein that tightens and strengthens the skin. Elastin is a protein that gives the skin its durability so that it can be stretched without becoming loose and saggy.
Microneedling also results in the production of micro-channels in the skin. These micro-channels allow for creams, serums, and other topical products to penetrate deeper into the layers of skin. The deeper they penetrate, the more effective they can be.
Microneedling with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Your blood is filled with essential nutrients and growth factors that can be incredibly beneficial for your skin. These components can be separated from the blood and turned into a concentrated substance known as platelet-rich plasma (PRP).
At Sperling Dermatology in Morris County, New Jersey, we offer microneedling treatments using PRP. The micro-channels created during the microneedling process will ensure that the PRP is fully absorbed into the skin.
The Benefits of Microneedling
Microneedling is an excellent option for treating a wide array of skin issues. In general, microneedling helps to create softer, smoother, stronger, and younger-looking skin. Microneedling also helps to lift and tighten the skin. The treatment is safe and effective for all skin types and colors.
Microneedling can be used to treat:
- Acne scarring
- Stretch marks
- Photodamaged skin
- Loose skin
- Fine lines
- Poor skin texture
- Enlarged pores
- Sun spots
What to Expect
The microneedling process produces minimal discomfort. The amount of discomfort experienced will depend on the depth of the penetration and the aggressiveness of the treatment. In order to make sure you are as comfortable as possible, a numbing gel can be used on the area being treated beforehand.
It will likely take several treatments to attain your desired results. These treatments will take place over the course of three to six months. You will notice improvements after the first session and significantly more improvements as you continue your treatments.
