If you have acne or surgical scars, board-certified dermatologist Dr. Aanand Geria of Geria Dermatology in Rutherford, New Jersey has the right treatment for your skin. Microneedling works by breaking up scar tissue causing the body to remodel it which improves the appearance of the scar. Call the office or book your appointment online today.
Microneedling, otherwise known as percutaneous collagen induction therapy, is a relatively new, minimally invasive treatment that can be used to address several cosmetic concerns.
Microneedling uses tiny needles to create “microchannels” in the skin. This stimulates wound healing cascade resulting in new collagen and elastin production.
Microneedling can help with skin rejuvenation, acne scarring, surgical scarring, fine lines, enlarged pores, uneven complexion, and stretch marks
Optimal results are achieved with treatments every 2 to 4 weeks for 3 to 6 sessions. Occasional treatments may be needed to maintain your results.
Treatments are usually well tolerated and most patients can return to work the very next day. For two to three days, you may notice mild swelling, redness, and flaking.
