FDA microneedling approved with no cross contamination.
For patients seeking a safe, effective, and quick way to have smoother, younger-looking skin, microneedling may be the aesthetic alternative to surgery you've been searching for.
How Microneedling Works
Collagen is what gives our skin its elasticity. Unfortunately, and despite our best efforts, everyone loses collagen over time. Two of the biggest offenders are time and sun exposure: our bodies produce less collagen as we age, and the sun actually breaks down collagen in our skin – both of which can leave fine lines, wrinkles, and loose skin in their wake.
Microneedling can help reverse that process. It is used to reduce the appearance of acne scars, stretch marks, wrinkles, pigment issues, and large pores.
Also referred to as collagen induction therapy (CIT), microneedling is a popular cosmetic enhancement procedure that involves repeatedly pricking the skin to stimulate collagen production and the growth of new skin tissue. These controlled skin injuries encourage cellular turnover for smoother, firmer skin.
What to Expect
At Atlantic Derm, Dr. Yvette Tivoli uses SkinPen by Bellus Medical, the only legally marketed and FDA-cleared microneedling device in the country. The medical-grade instrument is clinically proven to be safe and effective. Its depth-adjustable needles are straight, sterile, and precise to support your skin's natural healing process without the risk of cross-contamination.
This simple in-office procedure can noticeably improve the appearance of your skin, with many patients noticing a difference within a week of treatment. Because it works by stimulating the growth of new skin cells, the results are as natural as they get. Depending on the nature of the area being treated, multiple treatments may be required to achieve the desired results.
Not only does microneedling allow you to avoid cosmetic surgery, there is no downtime involved, so you can return to your regular routine after the procedure.
