Frequently Asked Questions about Microneedling in Central New York at CNY Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery
How does microneedling work?
Microneedling creates miniscule holes in the skin using tiny needles. This prompts the skin to begin its healing process, which includes the production of both collagen and elastin, making the skin look more radiant while minimizing fine lines and wrinkles.
Is microneedling damaging?
Your skin will begin to heal almost immediately. There will be no lasting damage to the tissues treated. Your skin may appear pink or red following treatment, but this will be temporary—once your skin finishes healing, you can enjoy a brighter appearance.
Does microneedling hurt?
While it sounds like it might hurt, microneedling is not a painful procedure. The needles are so small that they don’t cause much discomfort. If needed, a numbing cream can minimize sensation during the treatment.
What areas of the body can undergo microneedling in Syracuse, NY?
Microneedling can be done just about anywhere on the body, including, but not limited to, your face, neck, neckline, arms, legs, and buttocks.
Are there added benefits to microneedling?
Yes. In addition to a refreshed, more youthful appearance, you can achieve greater absorption of topical products following your microneedling treatment.
