What is microneedling?
Microneedling, aka skin needling or derma needling, is an anti-aging, chemical-free, non-laser Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) treatment that safely triggers the production of collagen and elastin by making microscopic punctures in the skin. A minimally invasive treatment, microneedling enables the skin to maintain its youthful appearance and healthy glow. The practice of microneedling has been a transformative skin treatment for over 20 years.

HOW DOES MICRONEEDLING WORK?
Our NYC-based aestheticians use an FDA approved proliferation device called the Rejuvapen®. Disposable sterile needles make microscopic punctures in the skin, causing increased blood flow, which stimulates fibroblast and immune cell activity. The tiny punctures create a controlled skin injury that results in a cascade of wound healing stimulation and provides the perfect environment for skin renewal and regrowth. Reaching as deep as 3mm into skin, micro-injury sites cause platelets to come into contact with extracellular matrix, triggering the release of essential growth factors and cytokines.
From acne scars to elasticity loss, stretch marks to wrinkles, microneedling is an effective, non-
laser resurfacing procedure. Microneedling facials are a much safer alternative to expensive, painful treatments that cause extensive downtime, possible scarring and changes of pigmentation in the skin. Microneedling services can be performed on most areas of the body including the face, chest, scalp, hands and eyebrows. Microneedling results are excellent for all skin types, especially where laser therapy is not the right option.
benefits of microneedling
For those looking for a deeper microneedling experience, Aesthetic Artistry has created our version of the infamous Vampire Facial. By adding a human fibroblast medium, biological cells are used to synthesize the extracellular matrix and collagen. Fibroblasts are the most common cells of connective tissue, and when used in conjunction with microneedling, the results are greatly enhanced.
Microneedling aftercare is extremely important after any treatment. At our New York office, we consult with you to determine what home care products, such as Oxygenetix®, Skinceuticals®, Image Skin Care® and human stem cell serums, are right for your microneedling aftercare. Our extensive line of skin care products help improve and maintain your skin’s overall health and appearance.
HOW OFTEN CAN I HAVE MICRONEEDLING DONE?
Microneedling can be safely done every 4-6 weeks until the desired results are achieved. We recommend you make an appointment for a free consultation at either our Manhattan or Staten Island New York offices and we will create a skin care plan.
