WASHINGTON – Microneedling is one of the hottest new trends in aesthetic dermatology and is easy to incorporate into any practice, according to Washington dermatologist Dr. Tina Alster.
Microneedling involves using an updated microneedle device to create small wounds on a patient’s area of concern. Perioral wrinkles, large pores on the nose, certain scars, and stretch marks all respond well to the procedure, Dr. Alster said at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology.
“I’ve been blown away by the fact that microneedling works as well as it does,” Dr. Alster added, noting that it’s not hard to do, it’s not hard to heal from, and it offers good results.
In this video interview, Dr. Alster explains how to do this microneedling procedures and how to incorporate the device into practice.
