MICRONEEDLING

Microneedling is all the rage now, and rightly so because the results for rejuvenation are amazing!! Microneedling is a skin resurfacing procedure that involves a mechanical form of exfoliation to remove the outermost layer of skin, revealing the smoother, fresher-looking skin below. The technique can improve mild to moderate sun damage, fine lines, and wrinkles, acne scars, enlarged pores, and can have a skin tightening effect.

 

Dr. Hazen performs microneedling on an outpatient basis at her office-based facility in New York City. This is a procedure that does not require anesthesia, though topical numbing medicine is often used. During treatment, many microneedles oscillate removing the top layer of skin. The result is a younger, fresher, glowing appearance to the skin.

 

The results of microneedling show within a week and improve up to 6 weeks. Recovery and downtime are typically one day.

 

Multiple treatments are recommended to achieve the best results. The procedure can be combined with PRP application (the so called Vampire Facelift) to augment the results.  It also can be combined with adding topical hyaluronic acid for the best results for dry and aging skin.

MICRONEEDLING

Microneedling is a very popular procedure, and rightly so because the results for rejuvenation are amazing!! Microneedling is a skin resurfacing procedure that involves a mechanical form of exfoliation to remove the outermost layer of skin, revealing the smoother, fresher-looking skin below. The technique can improve mild to moderate sun damage, fine lines, and wrinkles, acne scars, enlarged pores, and can have a skin tightening effect.

 

Dr. Hazen has the newest micro needling technology - the Morpheus8. Morpheus8 is a new subdermal adipose remodeling device (SARD) that fractionally remodels and contours the face and body. Penetrating deep into the skin and fat, this morphs the aging face of body into a more desired smooth and sleek appearance, for all skin tones. Morpheus8 has the ability to penetrate deeper into the skin than any other microneedling device, going as deep as 4mm.  Patient comfort is a major advantage of this device because of the sharper needles and tiny punctures it causes in the skin without tugging or pulling.

 

M8 can be used for, but is not limited to treating wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks surgical scars and more.
