Be Firm with Your Face

Facial Procedures New York, NY

Aging gracefully does not necessarily mean you need to accept the wrinkles and sagging skin nature bestows on you as you grow older. There are procedures available to help you retain a more youthful look. Microneedling is one of them. This procedure takes only a short time, is not painful and has no downtime.

Microneedling Basics

For some, the term microneedling may sound disturbing. Suspend your apprehension for a moment. This is a minimally invasive beauty treatment that produces smoother, firmer and healthier-looking skin. With microneedling, your first layer of skin is pricked by tiny needles to stimulate the production of collagen.

Collagen is one of the main substances in skin that keeps it firm and supple. As you age, collagen production slows down. This can be seen by the tiny lines and wrinkles that form, and the loss of volume in certain areas of the face. As more collagen and elastin is lost, your facial skin begins to sag. Increasing the amount of collagen diminishes the appearance of the lines and wrinkles. It also firms up the skin, producing a youthful visage.

Microneedling is a safe procedure for most individuals. If you are pregnant or use certain acne medications, you should avoid this treatment. A consultation appointment will help determine if this is the right treatment for the you. The procedure can last from fifteen minutes up to two hours from start to finish, depending on how large an area is targeted. The best results happen over time with more than one session.

Professional vs. DIY Treatment

Many beauty bloggers and DIY videos tout the benefits of microneedling using over-the-counter kits. While this may seem like a viable, less expensive alternative, it is not recommended. Microneedling involves pricking the skin and unless the tools used are well sterilized, bacteria could be introduced and cause infection. Another drawback is the possibility of needle tips breaking off and leaving small fragments in the skin. DIY procedures are also not as effective as professional microneedling.

When done properly by a qualified professional, microneedling is safe and effective. Contact Creative Facial Aesthetics to learn more about microneedling with and without PRP. Call us today to schedule your consultation appointment.

I've been to Michele for a numbers of years for various procedures and she's fantastic, a true artist. Michele never pushes procedures, always takes her time and the final results are superb. I'm in the entertainment industry and need to look my best. I'm thrilled that she's now moved offices and I was able to track her down, I wouldn't trust my face to anyone else. My advice, put yourself in her hands and trust and you'll be amazed at the results: not only is her work exceptional but very natural.

I have gone to Michele for more than 10 years, following her to her new location. It's so long ago but I think I heard of her expertise in a magazine article or blog. I trust Michele completely and have done botox and filler on many occasions during this time, The results are always perfect, so natural.

Scott S.

As someone who was very hesitant to try Botox, as I am a performer/dancer and expression is a huge part of my career, I could not be happier with the treatments I have received from Michele! I have gotten so many "You look so young!" and "You skin looks incredible!". Michele took her time to explain to me the benefits of different treatments and was very responsive to my concerns. I have recommended friends to her who are so grateful to me! As a person who came to aesthetic medicine through an incredible journey of her own, Michele is unparalleled in her compassion, skill and knowledge. Go see her! You will be in the BEST hands!

Melodie D.

Michele Rivard is the best I have had for my injections of botox and fillers. She is meticulous, exact and knows what needs to be done to make my face be the best it can be. I highly recommend her for whatever you want done and you will be happy with the results.

Meredith G.

Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!

Jackie C.

Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

Kaitlin M.

Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

Leah G.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
