Dr. Kesty and her team offer Microneedling as part of their comprehensive Cosmetic Dermatology services.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling involves using small needles to penetrate the skin. This stimulates collagen renewal, leading to improved texture of the skin.

What is Microneedling used to treat?

Microneedling can improve the appearance of acne scars, fine lines, sun spots, and the overall texture of the skin.

What should I expect during the procedure?

A topical numbing cream may be applied prior to the procedure. The procedure itself takes 15-30 minutes. The treated area may be red, swollen, and peeling for up to 7-10 days after the procedure. You can expect to see results in as little as two weeks, but the skin quality and overall youthfulness continue to improve for 3-6 months after treatment.

Can I combine Microneedling with other rejuvenation procedures?

Yes! Microneedling is ideally used in combination with other facial rejuvenation procedures including Wrinkle Relaxers, Dermal Fillers, and Laser Resurfacing. Our Dermatologists will help you make a comprehensive anti-aging plan that includes Microneedling.
