SKIN REJUVENATION NYC
MICRONEEDLING & PRP FACIALS
Skin rejuvenation in NYC can restore youthful, radiant skin. The medical team at Dermatology, Laser & Surgery of Carnegie Hill is very passionate about helping you find the right skin rejuvenation treatment to repair, nourish, and revitalize your complexion. As we age, our skin texture changes; we lose collagen, our skin sags, and our muscles loosen. Skin rejuvenation treatments can reinvigorate our production of collagen, increase circulation, and give us a refreshed and younger-looking appearance. Our practice is at the forefront of new technology, including PRP skin treatments and microneedling. We offer the latest and most proven methods to address your skin’s rejuvenation process and give you the best possible result.
WHAT IS PRP SKIN REJUVENATION?
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, which is a groundbreaking anti-aging treatment we use here at Dermatology, Laser & Surgery of Carnegie Hill. PRP skin rejuvenation helps to repair damaged or injured tissues in the body. PRP therapy utilizes growth factors found in your own blood to repair your cells. PRP can be used in various applications throughout the body. For example, doctors have been using it on athletes for years to repair injuries. Now, PRP therapy can help enhance your complexion. This treatment uses growth factors from your blood platelets at high concentrations to restore a youthful glow to your skin. Through stimulation of your skin’s collagen generation, you can reduce the signs of facial aging and repair skin damage with a natural, non-surgical procedure.
WHAT EXACTLY IS PRP THERAPY OR A PRP FACIAL?
PRP therapy is an anti-aging treatment that can improve the texture and complexion of your skin, while also reducing scars and wrinkles. Maybe you’ve heard of some of the nicknames for PRP facials, such as Dracula Therapy or Vampire Facials? These names arose because the treatment requires a series of tiny injections into your face involving the composition of your blood’s highest concentration of platelets. Immediately following your PRP facial injections, the tiny wounds are apparent. Most of the injection marks are undetectable immediately and the rest should disappear within a day or two.*
The improvement of your skin is transformational. In the months following your PRP facial, your skin should look more revitalized. It is the high concentration of your body’s growth factors, along with targeted dosing, that enables PRP facials to be so effective. Your skin cells, encouraged by the new growth factors, accelerate tissue repair significantly faster than your body could do on its own.*
WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING FOR SKIN REJUVENATION IN NYC?
Microneedling, also called collagen induction therapy, is a cosmetic treatment that can address a variety of concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne scarring, and active acne. During a microneedling session, your dermatologist uses a special roller or device with micro needles to prick the skin. An inflammatory healing process begins in response to each one of these tiny micro needles. This process initiates the formation of new collagen. The healthy tissue that surrounds the micro wound enhances the healing process, building new collagen, creating healthier skin, improving the skin’s texture, and enhancing the overall appearance of the skin. Treatments are minimally invasive, virtually pain-free, and do not require lengthy recovery times.*
WHAT IS A MICROPEN™?
MicroPen™ microneedling is a new innovation in cosmetic dermatology for the treatment of fine lines, acne scars, and improvements to skin texture, tone, and color. This device is a cordless microneedling instrument that contains tiny needles used to create pricks in the skin to encourage collagen and elastin production. The MicroPen™ delivers efficiency along with strong clinical results. The high-speed motor allows for a quick and comfortable experience.*
CAN MICRONEEDLING AND A PRP FACIAL BE COMBINED?
Our dermatologists often choose to combine the PRP serum with microneedling treatment so patients can gain all of the benefits of the growth factors to increase collagen production.*

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT THE DAY OF MY NYC SKIN REJUVENATION TREATMENT?
Skin rejuvenation treatments are performed in an outpatient / office setting. During microneedling, the skin will be cleaned and a topical lubricating gel is applied to allow the MicroPen™ to easily glide across your skin. When receiving PRP injections, a topical anesthetic may be applied to the treated area. Your platelet-rich plasma is extracted from a blood sample, purified, and injected into the target area using a tiny, fine needle.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER MY SKIN REJUVENATION TREATMENT IN NYC?
Microneedling and PRP facials require minimal downtime and patients can typically resume most of their daily activities immediately following treatment. You should begin to see your skin rejuvenation results in as early as thirty days. In the months following your procedure, your skin texture and complexion should continue to improve.*
HOW MANY SKIN REJUVENATION TREATMENTS ARE NECESSARY?
Depending on the condition(s) being treated, as few as one to two sessions may be required. Ultimately, the number of treatments will vary from patient to patient. Multiple sessions tend to deliver more substantial results than a single treatment. Our skin rejuvenation procedures are non-invasive, so patients can resume their normal routines immediately following treatment.*
