Microneedling Frequently Asked Questions

You’ve got questions? Youtherapy has the answers!

Here are some common queries many of our customers in Manhattan and Westchester have had before embarking on a Microneedling procedure. If you have others, feel free to call our offices and we’ll be happy to address them for you.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a skin treatment that uses a device with very fine needles that break down old scar tissue and foster skin cell generation. Cell production leads to the creation of new layers of elastin and collagen fiber and leads to improved blood flow in the skin.

How does Microneedling work?

The device slides along the skin and penetrates upper layers of the skin at varying depths to create tiny needle wounds. This signals the body to respond by producing collagen and elastin fibers. As a result, the skin becomes fuller, thus reducing the appearance of scars, lines, and wrinkles.

What conditions does Microneedling treat?

Some of the conditions that Microneedlng can help improve include mild to moderate acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, skin texture and pore size, and stretch marks.

What are the benefits of Microneedling?

Microneedling stimulates blood circulation and collagen production, creating an anti-aging benefit that plumps the skin out in time. This treatment also makes your skincare products that much more absorbable, increasing their efficacy. Microneedling can be used on sensitive and fragile areas (eyes, neck, back of hands) that cannot be treated easily with other procedures

How do I know which Microneedling procedure is best for me?

All of the Microneedling procedures Youtherapy offers are designed to produce the very best results for our clients. But each client is different, which is why our licensed estheticians will discuss your particular areas of concern, your history and the results you expect. From there, we will recommend the Microneedling procedure that will be best for you.

Am I a candidate for Microneedling?

Most people are good candidates for medical Microneedling. It is safe on all skin types and pigmentations because the epidermis is not damaged during treatment. However, it is not suitable for patients who have open wounds, cuts or abrasions, have had radiation skin treatment within the last year, are suffering from any skin infection, condition, or herpes simplex in the area of concern, are pregnant or breast feeding, have any history of keloid or hypertrophic scars or poor wound healing.

Are there any side effects to Microneedling?

The most common side effect is minor skin irritation immediately following the procedure. You may also see redness for a few days,

How often can Microneedling procedures be repeated?

As a general rule, Microneedling can be safely repeated every four to six weeks as needed and results usually begin to appear after the first treatment.

How much does Microneedlingcost at Youtherapy?

Depending on the microneedling treatment recommended, services begin at $290 and go up from there. Youtherapy offers discounted packages to maximize your benefits.
