Microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, is a secret weapon used by our practitioners to turn back the age clock and correct your damaged skin. We welcome you to call Gotham Beauty to make your appointment with our doctors and learn more about microneedling in New York, New York.
Microneedling is a safe and effective treatment for all skin types, and can be performed on both the face and the body. Microneedling helps to:
- Fight the aging process by targeting fine lines and wrinkles
- Correct sun damage and hyperpigmentation (often used in combination with a prescription bleaching cream)
- Eliminate stretch marks
- Treat scars
Treat hair loss (See PRP Hair Regeneration)
When you receive a microneedling treatment, our doctors begin by properly numbing the area to ensure a comfortable and pain-free experience. We typically use a prescription strength topical agent. However, we also offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas), a medical grade chiller, and injectable numbing agents. We then use a microneedling pen that oscillates up and down to create puncture points (micro injuries), to which the body reacts by producing collagen and elastin. This, over time, rejuvenates the skin, leaving it firm and more youthful in appearance.
Gotham Beauty also provides Radio frequency (RF) microneedling. RF microneedling is commonly known as sublative rejuvenation. It works using the same concept as traditional microneedling, but with a more advanced technique. This type of microneedling uses a device with radio frequency energy to create a lesion under the skin, causing a deeper dermal impact. Radio frequency microneedling is particularly effective for treating acne scars.
