At the Art of Natural Beauty Center in Cobble Hill, NY, patients can enjoy a selection of beauty solutions. Restoring and rejuvenating the facial skin is vital to keep it looking healthy and to slow down the natural process of aging. For patients who have imperfections of the skin, speaking to a dermatologist helps determine the treatments that will provide beneficial results. One common procedure is microneedling, which is gaining popularity as more men and women realize its benefits.
Why you should try microneedling
There are many reasons why patients should consider the benefits of microneedling. Microneedling is:
- Minimally invasive
- Free from chemicals
What is microneedling?
Dr. Tatiana Khrom provides information for patients who are interested in this treatment. Microneedling is a procedure that goes by many names, including derma rolling, skin needling, or collagen induction therapy. The treatment works by using a specialized device that punctures the skin with hundreds of tiny, sterile needles. These punctures help in stimulating the skin’s natural healing process. The skin will increase collagen and elastin production, which, over time, will provide amazing results! The rejuvenation seen after one or more treatments is remarkable and provides patients with a more youthful appearance with better texture and tone overall.
Who is a candidate for microneedling?
Any adult patients who are interested in the rejuvenation of the skin can ask their dermatologist about the benefits of moving forward with microneedling. Patients of all ages can use this treatment to either achieve more beautiful skin or maintain it for many years. The microneedling process is safe and effective at addressing a wide range of issues, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scarring
- Stretch Marks

How often should it be performed?
Dr. Tatiana Khrom recommends patients who are interested in this procedure to schedule a consultation appointment with her and her team at the Art of Natural Beauty Center. During this visit, the dermatologist will make a recommendation of how many times the procedure should be done. Patients who want to see dramatic changes will want to have treatments done regularly until their desired results are achieved. Then, routine visits every few months will help maintain the results. Some patients decide to start with one treatment to see how they like it and if it helps the appearance of the skin.
What can I expect during the microneedling procedure?
First, the skin is cleansed to remove any dirt and oil that could impact results. It also removes any cosmetics that the patient is wearing. Then, a specialized device is used along the skin. The esthetician will work in a distinctive pattern to ensure all areas of the skin are treated. Patients may experience some discomfort but can ask for topical anesthetic that can be used to make the procedure more tolerable, especially for those who have a low pain tolerance. After the treatment is completed, which typically takes approximately thirty minutes, patients will be given post-procedure instructions. These instructions advise patients on how to care for their skin as it heals and understand the do’s and don’ts of skin care following treatment. Patients will want to avoid sun exposure and will want to avoid using products with specific ingredients that can irritate the skin. Additionally, patients can schedule their next appointment if they are choosing to have several treatments done over time.
What is expected during recovery?
Recovery time is minor. In fact, most patients do not take time off work, school, or other activities after their treatment. The skin may be red and sensitive, but this is short-term and is not a lasting effect of the procedure. The doctor will advise patients on appropriate products to use that can contribute to the healing process and avoid the risk of problems such as infection.
