Microneedling is an effective anti-aging, skin tightening and skin repair treatment. Microneedling is a technique where a technician uses a tool that makes tiny, shallow, micro-incisions into the skin. As the micro-wounds heal, it stimulates significant collagen production.
Dr. Imber is an internationally renowned plastic surgeon and has performed over 25,000 surgical procedures. He performs a full range of cosmetic surgery procedures in his New York City practice, popularized the S-Lift, and developed the Limited Incision Facelift Technique. He has dedicated his career to helping his patients look as good as they feel, and always strives for the most natural results.
Microneedling has proven its worth over several years of successful application. This technique uses a hand-held device with sterile mini blades to stamp hundreds of superficial micro-incisions into the skin. As the micro-wounds heal, it stimulates significant collagen production and results in skin tightening, improving skin laxity, pore size, skin tone and texture. This technique can also be used to encourage hair regrowth.
Dr. Imber offers three different microneedling techniques so we can tailor the treatment for every patient.
This technique uses a hand-held device with sterile mini blades to stamp hundreds of superficial micro-incisions into the skin. We can adjust the depth of the micro-needle based on the area of concern to achieve the best results. This technique can also be used to encourage hair regrowth.
Microneedling with radio frequency heat
This technology combines the microneedling technique with radio frequency heat, induces collagen growth within the skin, resulting in brighter, tighter and younger looking skin. This technique uses insulated micro-needles to puncture skin delivering energy into different layers of the skin. We can adjust heat temperature and needle depth based on the goals to achieve the best results. This procedure can improve scarring, wrinkles, fine lines, skin laxity on face and body, and stretch marks.
Nanoneedling is part of the microneedling family and uses smaller, finer needles on the skin, offering a superficial treatment without downtime. We pair this treatment with exfoliation and intense hydration, leaving your skin completely refreshed.
What to Expect During Your Microneedling
Each treatment varies but for most, numbing cream is applied to the treatment area prior to the treatment for 20 minutes. During the treatment, you will feel a slight heating and some pressure on the treatment area. You may experience redness and swelling post-treatment, but it should subside within 12-24 hours. Your technician will discuss the treatment with you so you know what to anticipate.
Recovering From Your Microneedling
Results and downtime are different for each patient and our staff will review all details with you prior to performing the treatment. Dr. Imber suggests an initial series of three treatments spaced one month apart, and then maintenance treatments for best results. Everyone recovers differently and we suggest you refrain from heat and direct sun exposure post-treatment. You should also avoid any harsh exfoliants and anything that could irritate the area.
Words From Dr Imber!
“The concept is novel, and has proven its worth over several years of successful application. Up until now, there hasn’t been an effective non-surgical treatment that actually improves visible signs of aging like microneedling. My patients can’t get enough of this treatment, they do it from head-to-toe.”
– Gerald Imber, M.D.
