Micro-needling therapy rejuvenates skin in Brooklyn, NY
Do you have fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, or acne scarring that you’d like to erase? Or is your skin simply not as evenly toned and textured as you’d like? Micro-needling therapy is a versatile procedure that treats all these skin issues for a rejuvenated, glowing appearance. At the Art of Natural Beauty Center in Brooklyn, NY, Dr. Tatiana Khrom and the team of cosmetic professionals are here to help you revitalize your skin and turn back the clock on your appearance.
How micro-needling works
Micro-needling therapy harnesses the body’s natural healing abilities to refresh your skin and boost its health from the inside out. Using an array of ultra-fine, medical-grade needles, micro-injuries are created in your skin that stimulate a cascade of skin rejuvenating effects. Collagen and elastin production are amplified, and oxygen-rich blood filled with youth-promoting molecules rushes to the area. In addition, micro-needling can be used in combination with compounds that amplify the results, such as:
- Platelet-rich plasma
- Growth factors
- Hyaluronic acid
As the skin heals and new collagen and elastin help tighten and firm your skin, you will see improvement in the tone and texture and a diminished appearance of scars, stretch marks, wrinkles, and other signs of aging.
What to expect
When you come in for your micro-needling therapy, we will first apply a topical anesthetic to your skin so that you are comfortable during your treatment. After it has had time to take effect, we will then use the micro-needling device to create tiny punctures on the surface of your skin in the desired treatment area(s). The total treatment time is typically about 30 minutes but depends on the area being treated. We will perform any other procedures or apply any serums that are part of your treatment plan for the day and will then discuss any after-care instructions that are needed for you to heal optimally from the procedure. You can expect some mild swelling and redness for a few days after your treatment, but these can be covered up with makeup. It is important to use a high-quality sunscreen and avoid intense sun exposure while your skin heals. Most patients begin to see results soon after treatment—typically within a few weeks—which keep improving over time.
Learn more in a consultation
Prior to any procedure at the Art of Natural Beauty Center, we perform an in-depth consultation and skin evaluation to determine the best treatment plan for you. Our team consults with you about your cosmetic goals and treatment preferences to help you choose one or more services that will help you achieve the terrific results. Most patients who are interested in skin rejuvenation are good candidates for micro-needling; however, if it is not the right procedure for you, we offer a wide array of other anti-aging and skin rejuvenation options.
