The skin is the largest organ of the body, and because it is the most exposed, it can be dramatically impacted by the elements and natural environment. Skin on the face can become dull, pigmented, and aged. Patients who are considering skin-boosting services that can restore that youthful, glowing appearance will want to work with a team of dermatological providers who can help. At Dermatology Consultants of Short Hills, our professionals may suggest a series of microneedling treatments to smooth and improve the skin’s texture, tone, and overall complexion.
What is microneedling and how does it work?
Microneedling is one of many aesthetic procedures available at our practice, alongside many medical solutions. This particular treatment uses a specialized device that utilizes hundreds of tiny needles. These needles are run along the skin to delivery small wounds. While this sounds counterintuitive, it is actually beneficial for the skin. Microneedling stimulates the skin’s natural healing response, which increases collagen and elastin. With increased levels of collagen and elastin in the facial skin, patients will notice an improvement in their skin’s firmness and tone over the course of several weeks. The results are natural, beautiful, and stunning—making microneedling a procedure that is quickly growing in popularity amongst adult men and women.
Who is a candidate for microneedling?
Patients who have certain skin concerns, including the formation of fine lines and wrinkles, skin laxity, poor complexion, and uneven skin tone may find microneedling to be an appropriate treatment to fit their needs. The team at Dermatology Consultants of Short Hills will evaluate a patient to decide if this procedure is best, or may make recommendations for other treatments that may be beneficial for their unique needs. Consulting with our team is the first step in learning more.
