Microneedling is a popular non-surgical solution that can help to deliver anti-aging properties and boost the skin’s natural healing process.

Patients looking to rejuvenate their appearance or reverse signs of aging may find this to be a great option as a stand-alone treatment or in conjunction with other procedures.

The use of small needles administered through a handheld electronic pen reaches the papillary and reticular dermis in a purely mechanical way. Each individual microlesion is perceived by the skin as injury, but because the epidermal barrier is minimally disrupted, scarless wound healing occurs.

This treatment delivers results that complement and, in some cases, replace more invasive treatments while showing fewer side effects and shorter downtime. Your procedure will be customized to suit your unique needs and can use serums or medical-grade formulas to help maximize results.

During your initial consultation for microneedling Philadelphia Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Morgenstern will discuss expectations from microneedling alone and expectations when opting to combine microneedling with other cosmetic treatments.

Microneedling Philadelphia

Collagen is a naturally occurring protein that gives your skin much of its strength and elasticity. When you get a cut or scrape on your body, collagen is one of the things that begins the healing process.

Unfortunately, around the twenties or thirties, the body starts to create less collagen naturally. This weakens the structure of the skin and tissue beneath it, especially in areas like the face, hands, and decollete.

Products and treatments that help to stimulate our natural collagen production can help send more to areas that need it - and prolong or reduce unfortunate signs of aging like wrinkles and fine lines.

Microneedling works by accelerating the production of collagen on the surface of the skin. By pricking the skin, it triggers the body’s natural healing response, causing collagen to build up and improve the skin's appearance.

In addition to general rejuvenation and overall blemish and skin control, microneedling can treat the following conditions:
  • Scars caused by acne or chickenpox
  • Wrinkles
  • Smile lines
  • Crow's feet
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Enlarged pores
  • Brown spots
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Who Can Receive Microneedling Treatments?

    Almost anyone can get microneedling treatments, which adds to its popularity as a cosmetic treatment. It can help address universal issues like sun damage, age wrinkles, and collagen loss.

    However, the procedure is not recommended for patients who have lesions, sores, or acne present until the skin is clear. While it can help to prevent these conditions from recurring, our Philadelphia microneedling patients must wait until their skin is clear to have the treatment done.

    After a microneedling treatment, your skin will be inflamed. Icing the affected area can help, and your skin should go back to normal in as little as 2 days. Once the swelling has reduced, you’ll be able to see results start forming over time.

    As the micro-injuries heal effortlessly, the regeneration of the cells and skin on your face will show. It will take around four to six weeks for the full results to appear.

    The procedure is customized to suit everyone’s needs individually, so the results will vary. You can get regular microneedling treatments to help maintain your youthful results. We work closely with you to devise a plan that will give you optimal results.
