Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy (CIT), is a cosmetic procedure that uses small, sterilized needles to puncture your skin. These small wounds stimulate your skin’s natural healing process, which promotes collagen and new tissue production, blood flow, and skin elasticity.
This process restores glowing skin and plump volume.
New York Laser and Skin Clinic uses the FDA-cleared, cutting-edge Rejuvapen NXT®, the gold standard in this technology category.
The device utilizes a single-use disposable cartridge tip with 12 needles customized to repeatedly puncture your skin’s surface. Various depths and speeds target your unique needs.
Microneedling is a great option for adults of all ages looking to improve:
Microneedling is safe for almost all, but be sure to tell your provider if you have irritated skin, cancer, psoriasis or eczema, sores, or certain allergies.
What happens during a microneedling procedure?
During the Rejuvapen NXT procedure, your provider first applies topical anesthesia to your skin to make sure you’re comfortable.
They use lift hydrogel to glide the microneedling tool over your skin, making tiny pricks under your skin. The Rejuvapen device adjusts the depth and speed of its needles in real-time, allowing your provider to customize your treatment.
Rejuvapen microneedling takes anywhere between 15-60 minutes, is painless, and requires little downtime.
If the microneedling is deep, you can expect to have temporary inflammation or slight bleeding.
Your provider may suggest 4-6 treatments to achieve your aesthetic goals. Fortunately, you can expect collagen to continue generating 3-6 months after the procedure.
To avoid irritation or infection, refrain from using makeup or lotions for a few days, and continue to wear sunscreen daily.
