Brooklyn micro-needling is the process of using tiny needles to penetrate specific areas of the skin and stimulate the skin’s natural ability to produce collagen and elastin, which in turn help the skin look and feel healthier. Also called collagen induction therapy, this 15 minute procedure is done to treat fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, and improve skin texture. This dermatological service is minimally invasive and requires no recovery time. It is considered safe for most people in good health but not recommended during pregnancy. After a treatment, you can expect minor redness for a few days. Micro-needling works by encouraging your skin to make more collagen. The idea is that pinpricks from the procedure cause slight injury to the skin and that the skin responds by making new collagen-rich tissue. This new skin tissue is, in turn, more even in tone and texture. It’s normal for the skin to lose collagen via age or injury. By encouraging the skin to make new tissue, there may be more collagen to help make the skin firmer, too.
Brooklyn micro-needling is a convenient procedure. Between total prep and the actual treatment, you can expect to stay about 2 hours and may require at least 4 treatments to attain the best results. Dr. Ghatan is a board certified dermatologist who is trained in the use of micro-needling. His cosmetic and medical dermatological services offer a wide array of effective treatments designed to make you look years younger, often without surgery and long recovery times.
