What is microneedling and what conditions can it improve?

Poor skin texture and tone can be a serious impact on one’s appearance. Aging skin can be dry, dull, and loose, causing the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. Patients might also deal with poor complexion, acne, rosacea, and a wide range of other skin issues that can be difficult to cover up with cosmetics. Individuals who are looking to rejuvenate their appearance may be advised by Dr. Jack Bertolino of Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics in Williamsville, NY that microneedling can help!

What is microneedling?

Dr. Jack Bertolino describes microneedling as a procedure that is performed by a professional at his practice that can stimulate skin cell turnover and the production of collagen. This is achieved by creating tiny micro-punctures in the skin using a device with hundreds of tiny needles. The device causes wounds on the superficial layer of the skin. In doing so, it tells the skin to start healing, stimulating collagen for recovery. With routine microneedling procedures, patients can dramatically enhance the appearance of their skin and achieve better skin texture and tone.

What can microneedling be used for?

In addition to improving the skin’s overall health and appearance, microneedling can also be used for patients who would like to treat conditions such as:

  • Large, open pore size
  • Poor skin texture and tone
  • Skin laxity
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne and acne scarring
  • Age spots/sun spots
  • Surgical or trauma scars
  • Stretch marks

Who is an idea candidate for microneedling?

The best candidate for this procedure is an adult patient of any ethnicity who wants to enhance their skin’s appearance and improve its health. Patients might not be a good candidate for treatment if they are pregnant, have open wounds, have recently undergone radiation therapy for cancer, or have certain conditions such as eczema or psoriasis. A full evaluation is recommended to find out if a patient is a good fit for this or alternative skin treatments available at our practice.
