Microneedling in New York, NY
As you get older, your skin begins to lose collagen and elastin, which are proteins found abundantly in youthful, healthy skin. With the gradual loss of these proteins, skin can loosen and become dull or rough, giving way to an aged and weathered appearance. Microneedling is a highly effective treatment that uses tiny needles to rebuild your skin’s underlying support system and correct many of the problems we experience as skin ages.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy (CIT), uses very fine needles to create microscopic punctures (micro-injuries) in the skin’s surface. The microneedling process causes the body to heal itself by stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin. After your treatment, you can look forward to smoother, tighter, more blemish-free skin.

Am I a Candidate for Microneedling?

How Is Microneedling Performed?
During your consultation, you will be able to discuss your skin frustrations and goals, and one of our skin specialists will evaluate your condition to determine if microneedling is your best treatment option. If so, your specialist will customize a microneedling plan for you.
During your treatment, your skin care expert will move the handheld microneedling device over the treatment area. The needles will create a series of punctures in the skin, which help to stimulate collagen and elastin production.
For most patients, this process takes less than one hour to complete.
What Are Your Concerns With Microneedling?
What Is Recovery Like After a Microneedling Treatment?
Most patients will experience little to no downtime following their microneedling treatment at New Look New Life. Your skin may feel a bit sensitive for a few days, but you should be able to return to work and resume your normal activities by the next day.
Is Microneedling Painful?
While patients report feeling some discomfort during their microneedling treatment, they do not experience significant pain and find this experience very tolerable. Though not needed, many patients choose to have a topical ointment applied to their skin before microneedling to minimize any discomfort during their treatment session.
Does Microneedling Leave Scars?
You will likely see some marks on your skin immediately after your microneedling treatment; however, these marks will fade once your body’s natural healing process begins. Microneedling uses very fine needles, which puncture the skin but do not leave scars. In fact, scar reduction is one of the top benefits of this treatment.
How long until I see my microneedling results?
While you may see some improvement to your skin immediately after your treatment, it can take anywhere from four to six weeks for your results to become final. This is because the body needs time to heal itself and generate the new collagen and elastin.
How long do results last from microneedling?
Microneedling works best when performed as a customized series of treatments. During your microneedling consultation, we will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan. Results can be visible in as little as one treatment, but your skin will gradually improve as new collagen and elastin is produced over time. We often recommend microneedling be performed as a series of three to six treatments with about a month in between sessions to achieve optimal results. Many of our patients choose to undergo routine microneedling treatments performed three to four times a year as part of their professional skincare regimen.
Can I combine my microneedling with other treatments at New Look New Life?
Yes! While microneedling offers stunning results when performed as a standalone treatment, you can achieve even more dramatic improvement to your skin if you combine your microneedling with other cosmetic treatments, including:
How much does microneedling cost in New York?
Like any cosmetic procedure, the cost of microneedling varies with each patient and treatment, depending on the extent of correction needed and whether you are combining your microneedling with any other treatments. At your consultation, you will be provided with an accurate cost estimate.
