Dr. Ramaswamy performs Skin needling, also called micro-needling to treat acne scaring, pigmentation and to rejuvenate the skin. Skin needling is a minimally-invasive therapy that involves repeated puncturing of the skin with tiny sterile needles. The depth of needle into the skin can be controlled depending on the condition treated. The punctures created by the needles stimulate collagen and other growth factors necessary for skin rejuvenation. Microneedling has minimal side effects and can be used safely in patients with patients with melasma and darker skin types.
She also performs Micro-needling with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments which is a therapy that utilizes a patient's own blood to stimulate growth of new collagen in the skin. Microneedling with PRP is often used for the treatment of genetic hair loss and acne scarring.
