What is Microneedling?
If over-the-counter skin care products aren't effective, but you aren't ready for surgical procedures, try nonsurgical skin rejuvenation treatments, such as microneedling. Founding dermatologist Dr. Adam Bodian performs microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) at his office in Great Neck, NY. Microneedling with the Rejuvapen uses several fine-gauge needles to effectively and safely create micro-injuries in the needed areas of the skin. The micro-injuries trigger the natural production of collagen and elastin, two nutrients that improve the overall health and appearance of your complexion. Easily combined with other treatments, like serums or PRP (platelet-rich plasma), microneedling can help reduce pores, stretch marks, and scars while tightening your skin. Make an appointment for a consultation at Bodian Dermatology to learn more about the results of microneedling and ways to personalize your treatment for your skin needs and goals.

Ideal Candidates for Microneedling
You may benefit from microneedling if you have slight to mild skin issues, like a decrease in elasticity or rough skin texture. Microneedling procedures may also improve the look of stretch marks, scars, and pores. You should be willing to wait a while before seeing improvements from your microneedling treatment because the collagen and elastin require time to have an effect on the skin; however, you will develop natural-looking results and gain better overall skin health.
Our Microneedling Technique
Collagen induction therapy with microneedling is completed in a private treatment room in around 30 – 60 minutes with numbing cream or local anesthesia if requested; however, most patients experience mild or no discomfort. The skin being treated will be cleaned before the Rejuvapen handpiece is evenly passed over. Once the microneedling is complete, a topical treatment, such as PRP (platelet-rich plasma) or serum with a vitamin infusion, can be applied for deeper penetration of the nutrients into the skin and even better results. A moisturizer will be massaged in along with UV protection because your skin will be more sensitive following the treatment.
What to Expect after Treatment
After your treatment, you can have some swelling and redness for around one day, but this should resolve naturally. It may take around 1 – 2 months as the collagen and elastin supply increases before you see visible changes in the appearance and health of your treated skin. You should plan to get around 4 – 6 maintenance treatments every 4 – 6 weeks for the best outcomes and long-term skin health.
