If over-the-counter skin care products are no longer proving effective but you don't want to undergo a surgical procedure, consider minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatments such as microneedling. Our Long Island plastic surgeons, Drs. James Romanelli, John Layliev, and David Pincus, are happy to perform microneedling (collagen induction therapy) at our office in Huntington, NY. Microneedling uses many fine needles to effectively and safely make micro-injuries in the skin. The micro-injuries prompt the natural production of elastin and collagen, two nutrients that contribute to the health and appearance of the complexion. Make an appointment for a consultation at Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery to learn more about the results of microneedling and how to personalize your procedure for your skin needs and goals.
It's possible you could be a candidate for microneedling treatments if you experience light or mild complexion problems, like rough skin texture or low elasticity. Collagen induction therapy procedures may also reduce the look of pores, stretch marks, and scars. You should be willing to wait before seeing the results of your microneedling procedure because the elastin and collagen require time to have an impact on the complexion; however, you will have results that look natural and will improve your overall skin health.
"Amazing Liquid Rhinoplasty! - I was unhappy with my facial profile so I went to Dr. Layliev for a liquid rhinoplasty(nonsurgical nose job). He listened to all my concerns, and discussed exactly how he would mold the filler to smooth the bridge of my nose. At the end he suggested adding some to the tip to give it a little turned up look, which I elected to do, and LOVE. He gave me my dream nose, all with filler, no..."- L. / RealSelf / Sep 28, 2018
"Face Lift - Dr. Romanelli is a person of great integrity and honesty. He told me my skin was too thin at this age (I am 84) for a facelift and that lesser procedures would in all likelihood not provide the results I would hope for. I am very sad-dened about this but accept Dr. Romanelli's judgment. Of course I am not at all satisfied to learn that I am not physically able to have a facelift but am highly satisfied to have been seen by a physician whose opinion was based on protecting me."- Anonymous / RealPatientRatings / Oct 11, 2018
"Face Lift - I wanted a “natural “ looking face lift. Wanted to have a “fresh”look. Didn’t want to look like I was caught in a wind tunnel! No one knew I had a face lift! I heard you look good, you look rested, your all rosy looking and what’s different ? You look so rested. When I told this gentleman I had a face lift he said What! You didn’t need one! So I replied...really? You just said I looked so rested. People who did know I was having this loved it. Two woman want to have it next. When I show pictures they can’t believe it! Love love love the results!No pain! I couldn’t believe I experienced no pain. I did have discomfort from the staples and the crusted blood in my hair but I was able to shower and wash my hair the next day"- Anonymous / RealPatientRatings / Oct 09, 2018

"Courteous, informative, and professional! Dr. Layliev performed an important skin surgery on my mother, and she had two followup appointments. We were in and out within an hour both times. Dr. Layliev and his staff were very welcoming and patient with my mother's needs, and took the time to answer any questions we had. So if you need a plastic surgeon who does a stand up job, call Dr. Layliev."- L. / Google / Oct 06, 2018
Plan Your Procedure
- Average Cost
- From $350
Microneedling is performed in a treatment room in around 30 – 60 minutes with local anesthesia or numbing cream if requested; however, most patients feel little or no pain and discomfort. The areas of skin being addressed will be cleaned before the microneedling handpiece is evenly passed over. Once the microneedling is performed, a treatment such as PRP (platelet-rich plasma) or a serum with a vitamin infusion may be applied so the nutrients can penetrate deeper into the skin. A moisturizer selected for your skin type will be massaged in along with sunscreen because the treated skin will be more sensitive following the procedure.
What to Expect
You may have some redness and swelling for around one day; however, this should subside quickly on its own. It can take around 1 – 2 months as the elastin and collagen supply increases until you notice significant changes in the appearance and health of your skin. You should schedule around 4 – 6 follow-up sessions performed every 4 – 6 weeks for optimal outcomes and lasting skin benefits.
