Micro Needling is an excellent alternative to achieve noticeable skin tightening when at home and topical treatments fail to produce the desired results. Creams, serums and lotions are excellent means to keeping your skin radiant and hydrated, but despite rigorous care, you may still be unhappy with resilient sun damage, large pores and the beginning signs of aging: wrinkles, fine lines and facial sagging. If you’re dissatisfied with the results of your current skin care regimen, you may want to consider a minimally invasive, skin tightening option, Micro Needling. Dr. Sharon Giese offers the most advanced Micro Needling skin tightening treatment in Manhattan, the MicroPen.
Micro Needling is a minimally invasive skin tightening technique that is totally natural. Without the use of lasers or ultrasound, Micro Needling reduces fine lines and wrinkles, minimizes pore size, diminishes acne scars and provides skin tightening. Unlike traditional skin tightening treatments, the MicroPen has the amazing ability to naturally stimulate collagen and elastin production in the skin without damaging it by tattooing the serums into the skin. Micro Needling can also be combined with PRP for natural enhancement, achieving transformative and youthful results that target signs of facial aging. Like Dr. Sharon Giese’s signature procedure, NaturalLift, Micro Needling can put off more invasive surgery, such as a facelift. It can be used by both men and women to target a variety of concerns, especially smoker’s lines, neck and face rejuvenation and stretch marks on the body. Depending on the severity of your concern and targeted treatment area, Micro Needling is a 90 minute skin tightening procedure and occurs in one session, with maintenance appointment scheduled one to two times per year.
During Micro Needling skin tightening treatment, the penetration depth of the needles is adjustable, allowing for customized treatment depending on the severity of your condition and your desired results. With a twist of the knob, Dr. Giese can lightly prick the top of the skin to help topical products better penetrate the skin or achieve deep penetration into the skin for aggressive treatment, stimulating collagen and providing more noticeable skin tightening. Results from aggressive treatment will last longer, achieving noticeable skin tightening even months after the procedure thanks to continued collagen stimulation.

|Outcome||In addition to aesthetic results, patients also feel a renewed sense of self after this treatment. Like Natural Lift, Micro Needling can put off more invasive surgery.|
Micro Needling is an effective treatment for stretch marks. Stretch marks may form as a result of genetics, increased cortisone levels, pregnancy, excess weight gain or sudden weight loss. Stretch marks often present themselves as either subtle or prominent bands across the skin and most commonly appear around the midsection, breasts, arms, thighs and buttocks. Micro Needling treatment can improve the appearance of stretch marks by producing new collagen around the treatment area. This additional collagen helps reinforce skin structure, reducing the appearance of stretch marks over time.
