Introduction: What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in New York City. It is a minimally invasive procedure that improves the overall appearance of the skin by stimulating collagen production. It is best known for its ability to improve skin texture, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and minimize scars. It also stimulates the production of new collagen which reduces the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and other signs of aging.
In microneedling therapy, tiny needles are used to puncture your skin in order to produce tiny wounds that then heal on their own. This creates an environment for new collagen growth within your skin tissue. Microneedling can also stimulate certain substances such as growth factors to increase cell turnover rates.
The procedure is often done by dermatologists and medical aestheticians who see it as an effective way to treat wrinkles, scars, stretch marks and other skin conditions. At BYou, you can count on a safe and trustworthy experience. Our professional medical aestheticians are all licensed.

Microneedling can be done on any skin type, but it works best for people with dry skin or acne-prone skin. This treatment can be used as a stand-alone treatment or in conjunction with other procedures like chemical peels, laser treatments, and microdermabrasion.
History of Microneedling
Microneedling has become one of the most popular skin treatments in New York City in recent years. The procedure, which involves using tiny needles to create micro-channels in the skin, was first developed in 1995 by Dr. Desmond Fernandes, but it wasn’t until recently that it became more popular with celebrities who wanted to keep their skin looking young and flawless.
The procedure is not considered painful, but some people may experience mild discomfort or redness during and after treatment.
In addition to treating wrinkles, microneedling may also help with acne scars by reducing scar tissue formation.

Skin needling also helps reduce scars by stimulating new tissue growth and improving circulation in tissues. The use of microneedling before and after skin pinning results of sublative rejuvenation can improve the appearance of surgical scars by flattening them out or reducing their appearance.
The aim of microneedling is to create tiny channels in the upper layer of the skin and stimulate collagen production. This helps promote new cell growth and can help reduce acne scars, stretch marks, wrinkles and fine lines.
The process can be done on any part of the body, but it usually takes place on the face or neck for cosmetic purposes. It is also known as collagen induction therapy, and it is usually done with topical anesthesia.
