What Does Microneedling Do?
Microneedling offers a host of skin benefits that makes it an excellent cosmetic treatment option for patients who are looking to target various skin concerns. Microneedling treatment is able to successfully do the following:
- Diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Minimize the look of skin discoloration, hyperpigmentation, melasma, dark spots, and sun spots, as well as providing an overall brightening effect and boosting skin radiance
- Improve overall skin tone and texture
- Greatly reduce the appearance of acne scars and post inflammatory hyperpigmentation associated with resolved acne breakouts
- Tighten skin and improve skin elasticity to achieve a more youthful overall appearance
- Improve the appearance of stretch marks on the body
- Reduce the look of large pores to create a smoother appearance
- Combined with radiofrequency laser treatment to target additional layers of skin beneath the epidermis, maximizing the cosmetic results achieved through a single treatment session
- Combined with Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP, to take advantage of epidermal growth factors enhancing the healing process and boosting collagen and elastin production within the skin
In Dr. Green’s NYC office, treatments of PRP injections in the scalp and microneedling with PRP have become some of the most popular treatment options for patients with hair loss and alopecia, and for improving skin tone and skin texture.
Who is a good candidate for Microneedling?
Patients of every demographic can potentially benefit from having a microneedling treatment session. Microneedling is a suitable cosmetic treatment for patients of every skin tone and skin type, even for those with highly sensitive skin. A good candidate for treatment with microneedling, microneedling with PRP, or RF microneedling is an individual that is in good health, without any active skin infection, active acne breakouts, or active herpetic lesion. Patients with these conditions should refrain from having treatment with microneedling until the skin condition has fully resolved in order to prevent any unwanted side effects from occurring and to obtain the best results from their treatment. Additionally, patients who have a history of keloid scars, eczema, or psoriasis should also avoid having microneedling treatments unless they’ve thoroughly consulted with a board-certified dermatologist, like Dr. Green.
What are the Benefits of Microneedling?
Microneedling treatments offer a myriad of skin benefits for patients of all all ages, skin tones, and skin types- including those who have sensitive skin. Microneedling can be used to target skin concerns on many different areas of the body including the face, neck, stomach, legs, chest, back, and hands, stimulating collagen and leading to smoother, softer, more youthful and refreshed skin virtually anywhere. Plus, the application of these tiny needles on the skin allows for increased absorption of serums and epidermal growth factors that are used during the microneedling treatment, making them more effective.
Microneedling, microneedling with PRP, and microneedling with RF are excellent treatment options for improving overall skin tone and texture by reducing visible sun damage, age spots, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, fine lines and wrinkles, and large pores. Microneedling can even be used to temporarily improve the appearance of cellulite. Since collagen induction therapy reduces the appearance of enlarged pores and visibly improves the tone and texture of skin, it is also an effective cosmetic treatment for reduction of acne marks and acne scarring, all with virtually no downtime. In addition, microneedling treatments are incredibly customizable, as the tiny needles on the microneedling device can be adjusted to different depths for optimal penetration in different target areas on the face and the body. Microneedling treatments are also easily combined with other non-invasive cosmetic procedures such as dermal filler injections, Botox injections, and laser treatments like the V-Beam. Microneedling has been an amazing breakthrough in non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatments for achieving beautiful, younger-looking skin.
What is the Process of Microneedling treatment?
The process of having a microneedling treatment with Dr. Green is fast, easy, and painless. The first step in the process is consulting with Dr. Michele Green in her private Upper East Side Dermatology office in Manhattan. During your consultation you will have the opportunity to discuss your specific skin concerns and your aesthetic goals. Photographs of the treatment area are taken for your medical chart to enhance the discussion and track treatment progress. Dr. Green will evaluate the current condition of your skin and review with you proper at-home skincare. She will then assess the severity of any existing sun damage, fine lines, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation and determine which particular cosmetic treatments are most appropriate for treating your skin and achieving your goals. You may have a microneedling treatment on the same day as your consultation or schedule a microneedling session for a later date, depending upon time allowance and your preference.
On the day of your microneedling treatment session, a topical numbing cream should be applied to clean skin one hour before your appointment time. Once you arrive for your treatment, the numbing cream is removed and skin sterilized. The microneedling procedure itself takes less than an hour in total to complete. If you are having microneedling treatment with PRP (platelet rich plasma), a sample of your blood will be collected and spun in the centrifuge to derive the plasma for use during the treatment. During the microneedling treatment, a device containing a set of sterile fine needles is applied to the skin by Dr. Green, creating micro injuries in the epidermis of the skin. This process stimulates the natural wound healing process of the skin, inducing new collagen production as a result.
If microneedling is enhanced with hyaluronic acid, growth factors, or Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), it is infused into the skin after each pass of the microneedling device over the treatment area. Dr. Green will advise you to leave the serums in place and to refrain from cleansing the treatment area for about 24 hours after the procedure is complete. Leaving the skin to absorb the serum without interference for 24 hours allows for the best infusion of the ingredients into the skin, enhancing the healing process that is leading to the formation of new collagen and elastin. It is completely normal to feel as though the skin is dry following a microneedling treatment. Dr. Green may recommend her patients take advantage of some of the ultra-nourishing skincare products from her MGSKINLABs, Inc., such as the Hydra Repair. The Hydra Repair is a specially formulated, high concentration of hyaluronic acid that provides the skin with the essential moisturization it needs throughout the recovery process. Dr. Green will also recommend which moisturizers and serums are advised to use during the healing process. Patients are also advised to use a gentle cleanser and apply sunblock of at least an SPF 30 to best protect your skin.

Is Microneedling Safe? Are there any Side Effects?
There are minimal side effects associated with microneedling. As long as the procedure is performed in a dermatologist’s office, under sterile conditions, there is little chance of developing any serious side effects. Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure which Dr. Green performs daily in her NYC-based private dermatology office, located in the Upper East Side neighborhood of Manhattan. Microneedling with Dr. Green is safe treatment for patients of all skin types, and there is an extremely low risk of experiencing side effects like hyperpigmentation, scarring, or skin discoloration, which may be more common when a microneedling treatment is performed at home or in a medical spa setting. The procedure itself is painless, as a topical anesthetic is applied before the microneedling is performed. You may feel some subtle pinprick sensations as the tiny needles glide across the treatment area. It is normal to have some facial redness, swelling, pinpoint bleeding, and dryness or flaking in the days following your microneedling treatment. Dr. Green will advise you of the aftercare protocol to adhere to after your microneedling treatment that will guarantee you achieve the best cosmetic results with the least amount of side effects.
What to Put on Skin After Microneedling
A microneedling treatment session creates microscopic channels within the skin that can enhance the absorption rate of powerfully effective serums. That means that after your microneedling procedure, there is a perfect opportunity to take advantage of some of the best skincare ingredients, and in particular- hyaluronic acid serum. Hyaluronic acid is a component in the skin that supplies essential hydration and gives the skin a youthful and supple look and feel. As a part of the natural aging process, hyaluronic acid depletes in the skin, resulting in the development of signs of aging. By using HA serum after microneedling, the natural stores of hyaluronic acid in the skin can be somewhat replenished, minimizing various signs of aging including fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores, and sun damage.
Following your microneedling procedure, Dr. Green will review with you the best anti-aging serums and skincare products for you to continue with at home, to maximize the effects of your treatment. Many of Dr. Green’s patients use her AM/PM Duo serum and Vitamin C serums from MGSKINLABs at home to help boost the anti-aging effects of the procedure. At bedtime, Dr. Green recommends using a retinol such as the Antioxidant Infusion that she developed in her MGSKINLABs product line. In addition, regular sunscreen application is essential for both before and after having a microneedling treatment session for best cosmetic results. Sunscreen should be broad-spectrum, meaning it offers protection against UVA and UVB rays, and have a minimum SPF of at least 30. Sunscreen should be reapplied every ninety minutes to ensure skin is properly protected.
Since new skin is generated after microneedling, you should avoid the use of skincare products which contain retinols, alpha hydroxy acids, or any exfoliants, for one week after a Dermapen microneedling procedure. After your skin heals from the Dermapen microneedling session, then you can resume use of your regular skincare products.

When can I exfoliate after microneedling?
After a microneedling treatment, the only skincare product that should be used is a hyaluronic acid serum. The efficacy of the a hyaluronic acid serum is increased after microneedling due to the micro channels that were created in the skin with the microneedling device. Dr. Green’s MGSKINLABs, Inc. makes a specially formulated hyaluronic acid serum called Hydra Repair. This serum contains a high concentration of HA to maximize skin hydration and result in supple, firm, smooth, healthy skin. As far as your other skincare products, it should be safe to continue with your regular skincare routine, including exfoliating agents, approximately 5 days after having a microneedling treatment, though this may vary slightly on an individual basis. If you have any questions or concerns relating to your skin care after having a microneedling session with Dr. Green, call or email the office to follow up.
Should I do at-home Microneedling?
While many cosmetic companies offer microneedling kits for at-home use, it is inadvisable to do DIY microneedling treatments at home. Microneedling requires absolutely sterile conditions to avoid skin irritation and infection, and the majority of at-home microneedling treatment users don’t experience significant results. Many microneedling devices for home use are not regulated by the FDA. The dermaroller, a popular at-home microneedling device, is difficult to clean and can be a place for bacteria to grow. Instead of struggling through an at-home treatment and risking unwanted side effects for minimal results, invest in consulting with a board-certified dermatologist. When you work with Dr. Green, she will use her expert knowledge of over 25 years in practice in NYC, and her skilled microneedling treatment technique to ensure both a safe and highly satisfactory experience.
Who is qualified to perform Microneedling?
Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that should be performed by a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon. While there are medical spas and aestheticians who offer to perform various microneedling procedures, not every microneedling device is approved for use by the FDA. It is also crucial that microneedling treatment is performed under completely sterile conditions and that the needles penetrate the skin at precise depths in order to avoid unwanted side effects, including infection or scarring. It is recommended that you are very selective when choosing a provider for your microneedling treatments, and ideally have treatment with a medical professional. Dr. Green in NYC is a board-certified dermatologist with over 25 years of experience treating men and women from around the world with a host of the best non-invasive cosmetic treatment solutions available. Dr. Michele Green will design a customized treatment approach for you to deliver long-lasting, natural-looking anti-aging results.
What is microneedling with Platelet Rich Plasma?
Platelet rich plasma, or PRP, is commonly added to microneedling treatments in order to enhance the anti-aging and facial rejuvenation effects. PRP is derived from a sample of the patients own blood that is spun in the centrifuge to isolate the plasma from the red blood cells. The plasma is rich with epidermal growth factors that accelerate the healing process and, when used during a microneedling treatment, result in a radiant, healthy complexion. PRP promotes even more regeneration at the cellular level to rejuvenate your skin. After your procedure, you will be instructed not to wash your face that day, to maximize the effects of the PRP. PRP is well known for being used in treatment of joints and other orthopedic areas, and Dr. Green has also found PRP injections to be incredibly successful in treating female and male patterned hair loss, as well as other types of alopecia. If you are looking for a way to amplify the effects of your traditional microneedling treatments, then microneedling with PRP may be just the procedure for you.
What is RF microneedling?
RF microneedling is an innovative cosmetic treatment that combines two forms of therapy- radiofrequency technology and microneedling, to improve both the skin tone and texture, resulting in a more youthful, smooth, and radiant complexion. Microneedling creates injuries in the epidermis (the top layers of skin) while radiofrequency is used to heat the dermis (underlying layer of skin). This treatment method is used to stimulate collagen production at multiple levels and is commonly used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, and acne scars in patients of all skin types and skin tones.
Dr. Green offers the Vivace RF microneedling treatment in her boutique dermatology office, located in the Upper East Side neighborhood of Manhattan. Vivace is a unique microneedling device that uses a combination of radiofrequency energy and microneedling in order to tighten skin, boost collagen production, and bring skin health to a whole new level. This minimally-invasive treatment is ideal for reversing unwanted signs of aging, while simultaneously offering a comfortable patient experience. For patients with all skin types, Vivace offers enhanced cosmetic results, due to its dual functions as a microneedling device and RF device. It is this duality which allows for pain free skin rejuvenation in patients of every skin tone, without requiring any invasive treatment or downtime. When you consult with Dr. Green, you will have the opportunity to discuss your concerns and goals and determine as to whether a microneedling session with RF is right for you.
What other procedures can be combined with Microneedling treatment?
There are many treatment options that can and are often combined with microneedling in order to achieve pan-facial rejuvenation. Botox, V-Beam, and dermal filler injections are among the most popular procedures patients combine with their microneedling treatments to make their skin look more youthful, fresh, and radiant. Finding the best combination of treatments for your skin, is the one of the ways that Dr. Green’s treatments are so successful for facial rejuvenation.
Patients who are concerned about skin texture, specifically fine lines and deep wrinkles, often choose to combine microneedling treatments with cosmetic injections, such as Botox or dermal fillers. Dr. Green uses a number of different dermal filler products to smooth away fine lines, many of which are composed of a substance called hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring component in the skin that contributes to its suppleness, youthfulness, and overall hydration. Botox is used to target dynamic wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are those which result due to repeated facial expressions. By injecting Botox and essentially “freezing” the muscles responsible for the repetitive movement, Dr. Green is able to restore a youthful appearance and eliminate (or prevent) evidence of aging.
Patients who have microneedling treatments in order to improve their skin tone may struggle with the skin condition rosacea. Many patients have observed that the facial redness they experience because of rosacea is greatly improved through microneedling treatments. It is entirely common for patients with rosacea to combine their microneedling treatment sessions with V-Beam laser treatments. The V-Beam laser operates on a wavelength that specifically targets skin cells with red pigment. The red pigment in the skin absorbs the energy from the laser beam and is effectively destroyed, while surrounding skin is untouched. Not only does the V-Beam help with rosacea, but also reduces the appearance of acne scars, stretch marks, broken capillaries, and more. When you work with Dr. Green she will help you establish a customized treatment approach that combines the most appropriate cosmetic treatments needed to meet all of your skin care needs and provide you with the best cosmetic results.

How much does Microneedling cost?
The cost of your microneedling treatment is going to vary depending on several factors, including the geographic location of the office in which you are treated, the experience level of your provider, and any add-ons that you may choose to incorporate to enhance your treatment such as PRP or RF. It is advised that you have your microneedling treatments with a board-certified dermatologist in a medical setting in order to prevent any unwanted side effects from occurring. It is important to remember that not all microneedling devices are regulated and approved by the FDA. The microneedling devices that are used by Dr. Green in her private dermatology office for microneedling, microneedling with PRP, and microneedling with RF have been approved by the FDA for collagen induction therapy. Dr. Green is an internationally renowned board certified cosmetic dermatologist with over two decades of experience providing the best noninvasive facial rejuvenation treatment options, and will leave you looking radiant, youthful, and refreshed. During your consultation with Dr. Green in her boutique dermatology office in NYC, you’ll have the opportunity to discuss a treatment approach and timeline that works best for you, your cosmetic goals, and your budget.
Does microneedling hurt?
No! Microneedling treatments (whether regular microneedling, microneedling with PRP, or RF microneedling) are not uncomfortable because a topical local anesthetic is used to numb the treatment area before performing the procedure. Dr. Green prescribes her patients a topical numbing cream and advises that it is applied to the entire treatment area one hour in advance of the treatment itself. Once you arrive to Dr. Greens boutique office in the Upper East Side neighborhood of Manhattan, your numbing cream will be removed and skin will be sterilized. Dr. Green will then perform your microneedling treatment (or microneedling with PRP or RF). Should you experience any tenderness or discomfort in the treatment area following the procedure, Dr. Green recommends taking Tylenol instead of Advil or Ibuprofen.
Is microneedling permanent?
Microneedling is an ideal cosmetic treatment for targeting an array of skin concerns, including acne scars, fine lines, large pores, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. Although results from microneedling are long-lasting, unfortunately, they are not permanent. Acne scar treatment with microneedling does produce fairly permanent results in regards to improving the overall appearance of acne scars. Over time, however, as collagen in the skin continues to be broken down as part of the natural aging process, skin will naturally appear more aged and wrinkles, scars, fine lines, and pores more pronounced.
Ideal cosmetic results can be obtained by having regular maintenance sessions of your microneedling treatment with Dr. Green. If patients have deeper acne scars or winkles, Dr. Green may suggest other skin resurfacing treatments in place of or in combination with microneedling treatment, resulting in renewed, younger looking skin. No matter what your specific skin concern may be, Dr. Green in NYC has a non-invasive cosmetic solution for you that will leave you with stunning, natural-looking, and long-lasting results.
How long does microneedling last?
The results from a single microneedling treatment typically last for several months after the procedure. The best overall cosmetic results can be maintained by having regular maintenance sessions with Dr. Green. Having a series of microneedling treatments can produce longer lasting results. Although the treatment results are long lasting, the effects of microneedling are not entirely permanent. The skin is dynamic, living tissue that is subject to the natural process of aging. As collagen continues to breakdown through the natural aging process, new signs of aging can develop. Dr. Green will continually recommend the best non-invasive cosmetic treatments for you that leave you looking and feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
Does microneedling work?
Yes! Microneedling does work to improve the appearance of textural irregularities in the skin as well as boost overall radiance and skin health and even out skin tone. To determine if microneedling will work to treat your specific skin concerns, you should schedule a consultation with a board-certified dermatologist, like Dr. Michele Green in New York, who understands the complexities of the skin and can recommend the cosmetic treatments that are most appropriate for meeting your needs and providing ideal cosmetic results.
How does microneedling work?
Microneedling is a form of collagen induction therapy that improves the overall tone and texture of the skin. The process works by creating thousands of microscopic wounds in the skin with a handheld device that contains tiny insulated sterile needles. The wounds are created in a precise and controlled manner, with an adjustable needle depth. The ability to control the depth of the micro needles gives Dr. Green the power to deliver treatment to delicate areas, such as under the eyes. As the skin heals itself, new collagen and elastin are formed. An increased amount of collagen and elastin in the skin results in a firmer, tighter skin texture and a more youthful appearance overall. After microneedling, you will also notice that your complexion is more even in skin tone, and that you have a healthy glow that will last anywhere between four to six weeks.
Does microneedling help acne?
Although microneedling (and microneedling with PRP or RF microneedling) can be incredibly beneficial when it comes to minimizing the appearance of acne scars, patients with any active acne should refrain from having treatment. For active acne breakouts or other skin infection, it is better that these skin conditions be treated prior to performing any procedures that create punctures in the skin. Microneedling entails that controlled pricks in the skin are made in order to induce collagen production, and these openings can potentially spread bacteria if used where there is an active breakout. This could actually worsen the appearance of acne, and Dr. Green suggests treating active breakouts before having a microneedling procedure done to ensure the best results. There are many options when it comes to treating active acne, whether it be oral or topical medications, or the best in specially formulated skincare solutions. Dr. Green will work with you to determine a plan to treat your acne and improve the appearance of your skin that works best for you and your specific needs.
Does microneedling tighten skin?
To some degree, microneedling does help improve skin elasticity through the induction of new collagen production. Collagen is a structural component in the skin that provides it with a firm foundation and greatly contributes to the overall tightness and youthfulness of skin. By increasing the amount of collagen present within the skin, microneedling does cause it to become tighter, firmer, and more supple. However, if the primary skin concern of a patient is skin laxity, Dr. Green often recommends a more targeted cosmetic treatment, Thermage. Thermage is a treatment that is specifically designed to cause new collagen formation and result in tighter, firmer skin. Thermage is a noninvasive cosmetic treatment that utilizes RF technology to heat the dermal layers of skin that are beneath the skins surface. The application of heat to a treatment area causes stimulation of new collagen production, that occurs gradually. There is absolutely no downtime involved with the procedure, meaning that patients can resume normal daily activities immediately after they’re finished with treatment and their thermage session can be scheduled with ease. Thermage can be used to improve skin elasticity on the face, neck, chest, abdomen, upper arms, and thighs. During your facial rejuvenation consultation with Dr. Green, you will have the chance to discuss your concerns, and learn more as to whether a microneedling treatment or a thermage treatment is best for you and your goals.
Does microneedling work for hair?
There may be potential benefits related to hair growth associated with microneedling on the scalp. There has been clinical studies performed that have shown microneedling with minoxidil can contribute to hair growth in patients who have suffered from hair loss. This procedure has not yet been approved by the FDA and more studies need to be done before skin needling on the scalp followed by application of minoxidil solution for hair loss can be widely implemented into the hair loss treatment protocols of patients.
For treating hair thinning and hair loss, Dr. Green regularly performs PRP injections in the scalp to treat men and women alike. Platelet rich plasma entails drawing a sample of the patients own blood and then spinning it in the centrifuge to separate the red blood from the plasma. Once the plasma has been prepared, Dr. Green injects the substance directly into the scalp. PRP contains a number of epidermal growth factors that contribute to the health and strength of the hair follicles, as well as pushes the hair follicle into the growth phase and out of the resting phase. The result is a decrease in hair shedding, new hair growth, and overall increased hair resilience and retention. Patients typically benefit most by having a short series of treatment sessions at one month intervals. Hair growth is gradual, and results generally begin to be observable after several months of initial PRP injection treatment.

Does microneedling help wrinkles?
Absolutely! Microneedling is the perfect treatment for improving skin texture including wrinkles, large pores, fine lines, and other various textural irregularities. You don‘t have to rely on cosmetic procedures such as laser treatments, chemical peels, and dermal filler injections to achieve a smoother skin texture, microneedling is another noninvasive cosmetic treatment option with minimal downtime that leads to healthy, radiant, smooth, and youthful skin. Patients who are looking to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles should expect to need approximately three to six treatment sessions of microneedling in order to achieve ideal cosmetic results, though this can vary on an individual basis. When you work with Dr. Green to develop your anti-aging treatment plan, you’ll have the opportunity to discuss whether regular microneedling, microneedling with PRP, or RF microneedling is best for you and your skin, and discover about how many treatment sessions may be necessary in order to produce your desired results.
Is Microneedling treatment worth It?
Yes! If you’re frustrated by the appearance of acne scars, an uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, or stretch marks, microneedling may be exactly the non-invasive cosmetic treatment that you’ve been looking for. Collagen induction therapy is an innovative, effective way to improve elastin and collagen production within the skin, which in turn can help to reduce scar tissue and revitalize the skin. Rather than run the risk of scarring and exacerbating hyperpigmentation by performing at-home treatments, invest in the health of your skin and schedule a consultation with a board-certified cosmetic dermatologist, like Dr. Green. Consulting with Dr. Green is the best way to create a customized treatment approach to facial rejuvenation that works for you and your specific skin concerns and aesthetic goals.
