Do you have skin discoloration, wrinkles, or another condition that makes you feel self-conscious? Microneedling or chemical peels may help you.
Microneedling uses a dermal roller on your skin to initiate a healing response, encouraging collagen production to tighten your skin. Peels come in varying strengths and use chemicals like alpha-hydroxy acid, trichloroacetic acid, and phenol to remove dead or damaged skin.
At the office of Allen Sapadin, MD, we perform both treatments, and we can help you understand which one is right for you. As a dermatologist and aesthetics specialist, Dr. Sapadin offers many cosmetic procedures to boost your confidence.
At our office in Hackensack, New Jersey, our talented team is excited to help you choose which treatment is best for your needs.
How can these cosmetic treatments help me?
Microneedling and chemical peels can take your skin from damaged and dull to younger looking and healthier. Each method treats several skin conditions, from scarring to sagging, and we perform both at our office.
Reduce acne scars
No matter what kind of acne scars you have, microneedling and chemical peels both work to reduce their appearance. By promoting collagen production, microneedling allows your skin to heal, which means you see fewer scars as you continue treatment.
Chemical peels also reduce acne scarring, but they do so by removing layers of damaged skin, so you see less scarring.
Smooth your skin
Microneedling produces tiny wounds with a dermal roller. Small sterile needles prick your skin repeatedly, prompting your body to heal. The healing process encourages collagen production, and when it does, you see smoother, healthier, and more youthful looking skin.
Chemical peels can also even out your skin tone and texture by removing damaged areas that cause roughness.
Say goodbye to sun damage
Microneedling can restore collagen where sunlight has broken it down, creating a lasting reduction of wrinkles and sagging skin. Chemical peels safely burn away the top layer of your damaged skin and a new layer of skin appears, smoother and more youthful looking.
How to choose the right procedure
Microneedling and chemical peels treat many of the same conditions, but the same therapy won’t work for everyone.
Chemical peels treat more surface damage, like wrinkles, texture issues, and scarring. Microneedling treats conditions like rosacea, hyperpigmentation, and sagging skin.
Chemical peels work to remove damaged layers of skin, and microneedling works by inducing a healing process that replaces damage by filling it in with collagen.
