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 and John Laylie, 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.
Ideal Candidates for Microneedling
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

"I went to Cherie the other day to get lip fillers and honestly she was amazing. I normally use a cannula and I wasn't sure i was getting the results i wanted with that technique. She spoke to me about using a different technique which i was nervous about since I've never used it but I trusted her and my lips came out beautifully!! Not only that but i get nervous around needles and started to feel weak and Cherrie and Carrie came back in with ice packs and ginger ale For me to feel better. I am so pleased with the way my lips look and my experience at Romanelli!"- A.L. / Yelp / Nov 21, 2019
Plan Your Procedure
Procedure Technique for Microneedling
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 from Microneedling
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.
