Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), is a type of cosmetic procedure that uses tiny needles to create microscopic punctures in the skin. It is popular for treating acne scars, wrinkles, and other types of scars or skin irregularities. The most common use of microneedling is to stimulate collagen production in the skin; however, it can also be used to improve the overall texture and appearance of your skin.
At Glasgold Group in Princeton, NJ, we offer microneedling treatments using our advanced technologies and techniques. Our team of experienced medical professionals will provide you with personalized care and treatment options that are tailored to your individual needs and skin type.
Prior to beginning any treatment, we will conduct a consultation to discuss your goals and expectations for the microneedling procedure. We will then thoroughly assess your skin type to determine how many sessions are necessary in order for you to achieve optimal results. During the treatment session, we will use a device with adjustable needles that penetrate the surface layer of the skin at varying depths. This process stimulates collagen production, which improves scarring, fine lines, and wrinkles, as well as improving elasticity in aging skin.
The results from microneedling treatments can vary depending on your individual goals; however, many patients report improved texture and an overall more youthful complexion after just one session. Additional sessions may be necessary for more significant improvements; however, if your goal is simply to maintain a healthy glow or reduce minor scarring, then one session should suffice.
Benefits of Microneedling
Microneedling is an advanced cosmetic procedure that offers a variety of benefits. It can help reduce the appearance of acne scars, wrinkles, and other skin irregularities while also promoting healing in the deeper layers of the skin. The process involves using a microneedling device to create tiny punctures in the skin, which helps to stimulate collagen production and encourages growth in the deeper layers. This can lead to improved texture and complexion as well as improved elasticity in aging skin.
The main benefit of this treatment is that it can be used for many different types of skin concerns. It can be used on all areas of the body, including those with scarring or other marks that are difficult to treat with topical medications alone. Furthermore, it may help improve conditions such as dry skin, dead skin cells, fine lines and wrinkles, stretch marks, and other signs of aging. By penetrating into the deeper layers of the human body, this treatment helps to rejuvenate and restore damaged cells for a more even-toned complexion overall. Additionally, microneedling has been found to be safe and effective for all skin types without causing excessive irritation or inflammation.
Skin Conditions Benefited by Microneedling
Microneedling is a cosmetic treatment that can help improve the appearance of acne scarring. Acne scars are caused by skin injuries or medical conditions where the skin’s pores become blocked or infected. The resulting inflammation damages skin tissue, leaving behind marks such as deep pits, raised bumps (keloids), or discolored spots. This process helps to reduce the depth of the scar and improves skin quality, texture, and smoothness for a more even complexion overall. Additionally, microneedling can be used to treat other types of scarring caused by burns or surgery as well.
Uneven Skin Tone
Uneven skin tone can be caused by certain medical conditions, sun exposure, or even genetics. The treatment involves using a device with adjustable needles that penetrate the surface layer of the skin at varying depths to stimulate collagen production. This helps to reduce discoloration and improve skin texture for an overall more even complexion. Additionally, microneedling can be used in conjunction with other treatments, such as dermal fillers or surgical procedures, depending on the individual’s medical history and desired outcome.
Hair Loss and Hair Growth
Microneedling is a reconstructive surgery that can be used to treat hair loss and promote hair growth. Hair loss can be caused by medical conditions such as alopecia or genetic factors. This helps to improve blood circulation, which encourages healthy hair follicles to develop and grow in areas where hair has been lost due to medical conditions or aging. Additionally, microneedling can also help reduce scarring caused by alopecia areata or other types of autoimmune diseases. While this treatment option may not be suitable for everyone, it can help provide a long-term solution for those looking to improve their overall appearance and self-confidence. For best results, it is important for individuals considering microneedling as a hair loss solution to consult with a doctor or plastic surgeon beforehand to discuss the risks and benefits associated with the procedure. Additionally, combining microneedling with other medical advice, such as taking nutritional supplements or using cosmetic products containing active ingredients such as Vitamin C, may help promote further improvement in hair growth over time.
Microneedling is a cosmetic treatment that can be used to help reduce active acne and improve the overall appearance of the skin. Active acne can cause dark spots, inflammation, and other types of skin damage that are difficult to treat with topical medications alone. This helps to reduce dark spots and improve skin smoothness while providing lasting results without the need for invasive treatments such as lasers or chemical peels. Additionally, microneedling is considered safe for individuals who take blood thinners or other medications due to its non-invasive nature. The procedure involves using a device with adjustable needles that penetrate into the top layer of the skin at varying depths which helps to provide an even tone complexion overall.

How Does Microneedling Work?
Microneedling is a popular cosmetic treatment that can help improve the appearance of acne scarring, uneven skin tone, hair loss and hair growth, and active acne. The process involves using a device with adjustable needles that penetrate into the top layer of the skin at varying depths which helps to stimulate elastin production. This helps to reduce dark spots and improve skin smoothness while providing lasting results without the need for invasive treatments such as lasers or chemical peels. Additionally, micro-injuries caused by the needles can cause an increase in collagen production, which promotes the healing of damaged tissue. In turn, this helps reduce the depth of scars as well as boost overall skin health and appearance. Finally, microneedling can be used in conjunction with other treatments, such as laser treatments or dermal fillers, depending on individual medical history and desired outcomes.
Collagen Production and Skin Cells
Collagen production and skin cells are essential for maintaining the health of your skin. Microneedling is a procedure that can promote collagen production while reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and other skin conditions. The process involves using a device with adjustable needles which penetrate the top layer of the skin at varying depths to create micro-injuries. This helps stimulate the healing process by promoting the production of collagen and elastin, which help to create new healthy tissue and provide long-term results. Additionally, these micro-channels also allow for better absorption of topical products such as serums or growth factors, which further help to improve overall skin quality over time. Finally, microneedling is generally considered safe for most individuals when done properly under medical supervision.
Costs of a Microneedling Session
The exact cost of a microneedling session can vary depending on the type of procedure being done and the particular plastic surgeon providing the service. Generally, a session typically costs around $400-$1000 in Princeton, NJ. This cost may include additional fees such as anesthesia or other related medical expenses. It is important to consult with your plastic surgeon beforehand to discuss any and all possible costs associated with the procedure. Additionally, some clinics may offer special packages or discounts, which could reduce overall costs even further.
Risks and Side Effects of the Treatment
Common side effects include redness, swelling, and minor bleeding at the site of the treatment. These effects should subside within a few days. Additionally, some patients may experience temporary skin discoloration or hyperpigmentation, which could last for several weeks to months after the procedure. Finally, it is possible for infections to occur if proper sterilization techniques are not followed before and after the treatment. It is important to discuss any potential risks or concerns with your plastic surgeon before beginning the procedure. In general, most people who undergo microneedling can expect excellent results that will last for several years with proper follow-up treatments.
Is Everyone a Candidate for Microneedling?
Generally, microneedling is considered safe for most individuals as long as they are in good health and do not have a current skin infection. The procedure can provide excellent results to help reduce dark spots, inflammation, and other types of skin damage. However, people with certain medical conditions, such as diabetes or any active infections, may not be suitable candidates. Additionally, people who are taking medications such as blood thinners or steroids may need to take additional precautions before undergoing the treatment. It is important to speak with your plastic surgeon beforehand to discuss any and all potential risks associated with the procedure.

For patients with a history of cold sores, taking an antiviral approximately 48 hours before treatment can help prevent new sores. If a cold sore is already visible on the day of the procedure, a new appointment must be scheduled.
It is important not to apply cosmetics directly after a microneedling session. To reduce inflammation or the possibility of infection, cosmetics should be avoided for approximately a week after each treatment.
It is recommended that patients abstain from alcohol for at least one week after treatment. Alcohol can have an impact on the healing process. Staying hydrated and eating a well-balanced diet are best for recovery.
Patients must be at least 18 to qualify for microneedling. If the patient is approved during an initial screening, age is not a factor for adults. Before making any decisions, an initial consultation can help patients discuss any concerns or questions they may have.
