Automated MicroNeedling: Microneedling is a procedure, which uses an automated microscopic needle to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin, that results in production of collagen and elastin and improvement of wrinkles and acne scars during your skin’s natural repair process.  Our microneedling treatment in NJ creates thousands of microscopic channels that can be used to allow delivery of topical medications such as hydroquinone gel or retinol to the deep layers of the dermis to treat skin pigmentation problems like melasma.  Automated Microneedling is excellent for our patients, in NJ and worldwide, with melasma because it causes remodeling and delivery of medication without heating or causing inflammation, which are both known to cause melasma to flare.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is the microneedling NJ procedure performed in your NJ offices?

When you arrive at our NJ offices for your microneedling nj procedure, a potent topical anesthetic cream is placed on your face.  A sterile needle-tip containing 12 tiny micro-needles is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen™.  A thin layer of topical gel is then applied to your skin and then the micro pen is gently pressed against your skin while simultaneously gliding until the entire treatment area has been covered. This part of the microneedling process creates thousands of superficial microscopic channels  throughout the entire microneedling nj treatment area. The microneedling nj procedure takes about 45 minutes including the time for numbing within the NJ office.

Is a MicroNeedling NJ procedure right for me?

Schedule a Microneedling consult at our Bergen County, NJ office with our Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Aaron Capuano.  He will perform a comprehensive assessment and make recommendations to best meet your needs.  While we believe he offers the highest quality microneedling nj has, it may or may not be right for you.

How do I make a microneedling appointment for a NJ consultation?

Contact the office of the Northern Center for Plastic Surgery at (201)820-5280 to schedule an appointment.  We are located in Bergen County NJ and can give you additional information about microneedling nj procedures.

What if I am interested in treatments other than microneedling, including plastic surgery?

You may schedule a microneedling appointment with Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Aaron  Capuano, located in Bergen NJ, who will address your interests and goals including microneedling procedures and any other plastic surgery or non-invasive procedure may be interested in.

Can I get microneedling while on antibiotics?

Typically antibiotics in and of themselves are not a contraindication to having a microneedling treatment.  The important question is why are you on the antibiotic?  If the antibiotic was prescribed to treat an active skin infection, you should wait until that infection completely resolves and consult with your physician before undergoing any elective microneedling treatment.  Additionally, I defer microneedling treatments if patients present with active upper respiratory tract infection or sinus infection until they are resolved.  I hope this helps.
