While aging is inevitable as time passes, suffering from rapid, visible changes to your face does not have to be. Microneedling  in Bala Cynwyd is a simple procedure that can keep you looking younger for years longer than nature intended. Microneedling can take years off of your look, and improve the overall appearance and texture of your skin. At our exclusive skincare clinic in Bala Cynwyd, Dr. Paul M. Glat performs microneedling for men and women who want to retain healthy, youthful, supple skin.

What Is microneedling?

Microneedling utilizes an electric needling device that stimulates the production of elastin and collagen in your skin. It breaks down old scar tissue and stimulates the rapid growth of new skin cells, filling fine lines and wrinkles. Microneedling can refresh your appearance and keep your skin looking and feeling fresh and supple. The outcome appears natural so that you can maintain your own natural beauty and enhance your features.

What are the benefits of microneedling?

The primary benefit of microneedling is that the procedure can give you a refreshed, natural appearance without the need for surgery. The process stimulates the natural elastin and collagen compounds in your body to improve the overall texture and appearance of your skin. However, there are several other benefits of microneedling:

  • It causes little to no discomfort
  • It diminishes fine lines, scar tissue, and wrinkles
  • It does not leave scars
  • It is ideal for men and women
  • It requires a minimum amount of downtime

How is microneedling performed?

Microneedling utilizes a device that gently glides over your skin, penetrating the upper layers. Before the procedure, Dr. Glat and his staff will cleanse the treatment area and apply a numbing cream so that you are comfortable during the procedure. Then, he will roll the small, handheld device, which has a sterile tip, over your skin. The disposable tip on the device has 12 super-fine needles that gently penetrate about 2 millimeters into the upper layers of your skin.

Regenerate your skin, naturally.

This safe, effective procedure creates numerous minuscule, controlled wounds on the surface of your skin. In response, your body produces extra elastin and collagen to fill in the tiny wounds and make your skin plumper. The increase in natural collagen production reduces the visibility of fine lines, scars, and wrinkles. Dr. Glat will continue the process over your entire face to give you a refreshed, smoother appearance.

How do I prepare for a microneedling treatment?

Dr. Glat, or one of his associates, will discuss the specific requirements for you to prepare for microneedling during your initial consultation with him. You might have to incorporate specific vitamins and antioxidants into your daily skincare routine for as long as a month before the procedure so that your skin is ready. Dr. Glat may advise you to take oral supplements that condition your skin, such as flaxseed oil or fish oil.

What is the recovery after microneedling?

Following the microneedling treatment, Dr. Glat might apply several facial creams and skin-restoring serums, or other specialized products to heal, hydrate, protect, and soothe your skin. These serums help ensure you will heal faster and see results rapidly (often within a few days). It may be necessary for you to undergo a microneedling treatment every four to six weeks to achieve the results that you desire.

Immediately following microneedling treatment, your skin might look red like it is sunburnt and feel tingly or warm for about 12 to 48 hours. You will be able to return to your normal activities without any restrictions. To reduce the redness, you can apply hyaluronic acid or mineral makeup to the treatment area. It is recommended that you wear a sunscreen with a zinc base as well to protect your skin from UV rays following the procedure.

How much does microneedling cost in Philadelphia?

Your cost for microneedling will reflect the condition of your skin. Dr. Glat’s team will be happy to talk with you during your initial consultation about the cost of your custom microneedling treatment. Along with accepting Discover, Visa, and MasterCard as forms of payment, we also offer financing options. Be sure to check our Current Specials.

Is microneedling right for me?

If you have fine lines, scars, or wrinkles on your face, you could benefit from microneedling treatments. You are also likely to benefit from microneedling if you want to look more refreshed and youthful and if you can commit to several treatments. You may need multiple treatments, four to six weeks apart, to achieve optimal results in skin renewal and regeneration.
