Microneedling has slowly become one of the most popular and in-demand aesthetic medicine procedures around. From the office of every dermatologist with an eye for aesthetics to every medical spa practice in the 5 boroughs of NYC, you can find someone who will rave about the amazing skincare benefits of micro needling. When it comes to microneedling Brighton Beach physician Dr. Michael Riskevich and his team at New York Aesthetics are firm believers in the amazing effects which are possible. Microneedling is sometimes known as collagen induction therapy, a minimally-invasive facial procedure designed to rejuvenate and reinvigorate the skin. Using a pen-like device known as the dermapen, micro needling works by using tiny, fine needles to penetrate the skin and create a series of tiny micro-punctures within the skin’s surface. These tiny micropuncture sites are designed to trigger the body’s natural healing mechanism, allowing the skin to repair & replenish itself while resurfacing any skin blemishes away at the same time. as the skin begins to heal itself of the micropuncture sites, the area of the injury becomes flooded with blood and oxygen, as well as other naturally-restorative products. When it comes to microneedling Brighton Beach patients prefer the use of the Dermapen because it provides uniform correction to an area in need of blemish removal. Once that area improves its complexion it will begin to fade any blemishes and other issues and brighten any discolorations or dark spots. While the possibilities of micro needling are truly a breakthrough for aesthetics, there are a number of things few patients know before they undergo treatment to better prepare you here are a few of the most common effects to know about before your first appointment.
· It’s a Quick Procedure, that is Relatively Pain-Free
When it comes to microneedling Brighton Beach patients are often shocked at how little it truly hurts or how little discomfort they feel. For the most part, at New York Aesthetics, Dr. Riskevich uses numbing cream in an effort to lessen the pain of patients and it becomes quite tolerable in terms of the pain levels. In addition, the procedure only lasts anywhere from 15-45 minutes depending upon the level of correction you desire. For most patients, the procedure is completed in under 20 minutes.
· There Are Common Side Effects
Like with any procedure it is important to understand that micro-needling does have some minor side effects. Patients will often complain that their skin has turned a bit red and discolored, as well the feeling of some light bruising and swelling along the treatment area. For most patients, however, these side effects are fairly minor and will heal relatively quickly. In some patients, they may also experience minor itching along the skin, but this side effect is very rare and again, disappears in a few days.
· Glowing, Radiant Skin
One of the best benefits of dermapen microneedling Brighton Beach doctor Michael Riskevich is able to obtain for his patients is the clear, glowing, radiant skin they’ve always wanted! For the most part, the vast majority, if not all patients will generally experience a high level of radiance beginning almost immediately after the treatment, most often the following morning, as the skin becomes oxygenated and has begun the healing process.
