Micro-Needling Q & A Session with Dr. Gangi
Q: We will be discussing the hottest trends in cosmetic medicine today with Dr. Gangi of Étoile Cosmetic Medicine located in Randolph, New Jersey.
A: Thank you so much! As you know, we are deeply committed to helping our patients look and feel their best by offering a variety of minimally invasive cosmetic treatment options. We are really excited about adding Micro-Needling to our menu of therapeutic services at Étoile.
Q: What is Micro-Needling?
A: Micro-Needling, known as collagen induction therapy offers exceptional skin-rejuvenation and resurfacing with minimal downtime and discomfort. There is no destruction of healthy skin layers that you often see with laser resurfacing treatments. A hand-held device with fine surgical needles creates micro-perforations in the top layer of the skin, which triggers the body to create new collagen and elastin.
Q: So, this is a natural anti-aging skin treatment?
A: Yes, as it does stimulate your skin’s natural ability to heal itself by promoting collagen growth!
Q: What conditions can Micro-Needling improve the appearance of?
A: * Fine lines and wrinkles
* Acne scarring
* Scars from burns or incisions
* Stretch marks
* Sagging skin (improves texture & firmness)
* Coarse skin and large pores
Q: Are the treatments painful?
A: Patients tolerate the treatment very well with topical lidocaine applied prior to treatment. After the treatment, people describe the sensation of a mild to moderate sunburn. In most cases, the patient does not experience any downtime.
Q: How many treatment are required?
A: Most patients require 6 treatments to achieve visible results that are seen after several treatments. We offer packages to make the treatments more affordable.
Q: Can this procedure be done on all skin types?
A: Traditionally, darker skinned individuals were not candidates for laser procedures; however, Micro-needling can be performed on all skin types, regardless of color.
