In her article, Mulpeter begins, “We know what you’re probably thinking: poking little holes into your face in the name of beauty sounds insane. But experts agree that when done properly, microneedling is relatively risk-free and can have real benefits for your skin.”
The article quotes Bruce E. Katz, MD, founder of the Juva Skin & Laser Center in New York City, as saying, “The results are very impressive.” Also quoted is Debra Jaliman, MD, a New York City-based dermatologist, who said, “I’d recommend [microneedling] to patients to help reduce pore size and improve texture.”
Mulpeter describes the procedure: “The entire process takes about 15 minutes. A numbing cream is applied first, then the needles are moved across the skin using a small handheld device […] The result is smoother, firmer, more even-looking skin. By promoting collagen growth, microneedling may help reverse signs of aging (such as fine lines), fade acne scars, and make skin look refreshed.”
