Revitalize Your Skin
at Carniol Plastic Surgery
Want to smooth out those fine lines and wrinkles? Want glowing skin? In our younger years, our skin is toned and full of collagen. However, as we age, our skin begins to thin, sag, and weaken. Fortunately, you can give your skin the boost it needs to reverse years of damage with Collagen Induction Therapy, also known as Microneedling. Microneedling at Carniol Plastic Surgery in Summit, NJ offers a rejuvenating solution to turn back the clock on your appearance.
Experience the Benefits of Microneedling
As a popular non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatment, microneedling consistently delivers outstanding clinical results while remaining safe for all skin types. Whether you struggle with enlarged pores, unhealed acne scars, uneven skin tone, or fine lines and wrinkles, schedule a microneedling consultation with Dr. Carniol in Summit, NJ to reclaim your youthful radiance.
Understanding the Microneedling Process
During our childhood, collagen and elastin proteins abundant in our skin facilitated quick healing and maintained its softness. Microneedling harnesses this fundamental principle, activating your skin’s natural healing powers precisely where they are needed. Using a needle-lined applicator, microneedling creates microchannels in the treatment area. These microchannels guide your skin’s healing response, triggering the production of collagen and elastin. This flood of healing factors not only closes the microchannels but also minimizes pore size, remodels scars, reduces discoloration, and smoothes fine lines and wrinkles.
At Carniol Plastic Surgery, we take microneedling a step further. By combining microneedling with topical Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) and Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) solutions, we promote cellular regeneration in the deeper layers of your skin. Call 908-598-1400 today!

No, microneedling is a comfortable procedure. Before starting the treatment, we apply a topical numbing cream to the treatment area, ensuring your comfort throughout the quick and pain-free procedure. Afterward, a healing mask is applied to enhance results and expedite healing. To learn more about microneedling treatments, contact Carniol Plastic Surgery in Summit, NJ today.
Before your microneedling session, we recommend avoiding alcohol and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (such as Advil®, Motrin®, or Aleve®) for one week. These substances can increase bleeding and lead to more bruising after the procedure. For optimal results and maximum comfort, follow these guidelines:
- Avoid facial products containing salicylic acid, commonly found in facial cleansers
- Refrain from consuming heavy or fatty meals one hour before treatment
- Avoid sun exposure for two weeks prior to the procedure
- Abstain from caffeine for at least two hours before the treatment
Absolutely! Microneedling is a commonly used method for promoting the healing of new and old acne scars. Without treatment, acne scars tend to show little improvement over time. By stimulating your skin’s natural healing response, microneedling redirects its attention to lingering acne scars and other forms of tissue trauma.
Microneedling harnesses your body’s collagen production, effectively treating various skin conditions and imperfections in a single session. For optimal results, multiple microneedling appointments may be recommended. However, even a few sessions can help with:
- Acne scars
- Stretch marks
- Smoker’s lines
- Crow’s feet
- Worry lines (forehead)
- Enlarged pores
- And many more
Microneedling makes microchannels in the skin to induce the body to stimulate, tighten, and firm. When RF microneedling (radiofrequency microneedling) is done, a different device is used that sends out the radiofrequency current under the skin. This enacts immediate skin contraction and induces a much greater stimulating response. This effect is much greater per treatment and can affect even deeper levels of the skin for tightening.
