Loss of collagen and elastin in the skin are the top reasons the skin loses elasticity and volume as you get older. Collagen production begins to wane as early as your twenties, resulting in skin that slowly loses softness and firmness. Lines, wrinkles and loose skin are the result. One non-surgical skin treatment option to spur collagen production and help rejuvenate youthfulness in the skin is micro needling, available through the offices of Joshua D. Rosenberg, MD, in NYC and Upper East Side.

What is Micro Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy?

If you like the idea of harnessing your body’s own healing properties to improve your skin’s appearance, micro needling is a perfect treatment for you. With micro needling, there are no drugs or fillers added to your skin, only exposure to tiny needles puncturing the skin. Micro needling is performed using a specialized tool that contains tiny needles that poke the skin without damaging it. Although there is not a wound, the body reacts as if a wound is present. Collagen is produced to heal the skin, helping increase levels for more youthful appearing skin, which is why micro needling is also referred to as collagen induction therapy, or CIT.

With micro needling, the results are not immediate but occur over the weeks following treatment. As collagen increases, the skin enhances in volume and elasticity. Wrinkles and lines can fade and the skin becomes firmer. Other benefits include reduced skin flaws, and micro needling can help fade acne scars and pigmentation issues. Dr. Rosenberg often recommends micro needling treatments to be paired with PRP treatments to help the skin repair and rejuvenate.

Micro needling can be performed in an office visit and requires little to no downtime after the procedure. If you want to learn more about this minimally-invasive option to improve the youthfulness of your skin, contact our plastic surgery practice today to schedule a consultation.

I haven't the opportunity to meet the doctor yet, I have an appointment. I was referred by an ENT doctor in NJ, Dr. Douglas Leventhal, nice, young, excellent bed manners. Unfortunately he does not reconstruction nasal perforation, but he was very interested in helping me, and he referred me to a colleague in NY, and asked me wait a call from them, otherwise to call him back if they didn't contact me. Thanks GOD, they are very efficient and received, today two calls , I finally got to talk to Evelyn, very kind, and patient, gave me the appointment, I hope that my present health problem due to bad medical practice years ago, Dr. Rossenberg, can reconstruct my septum. I thank you from deep of my heart.
