Microneedling - Collagen Induction Therapy

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is used to treat many skin conditions safely and effectively without the potential side effects and long downtime of lasers and cosmetic surgery. Microneedling tightens and lifts the skin, improving the skin’s texture and effectively treating scars. It is effective regardless of your age or skin type. Microneedling at The Art Of Massage & Skincare involves a trained practitioner and little risk for a minimally invasive procedure that promises excellent results.

Microneedling treats a wide range of skin conditions. It is used to reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks, as well as shrink pores. Microneedling also smooths fine lines and wrinkles. It is particularly well suited for fading acne scars. It can also be used as an anti-aging treatment. Microneedling plumps skin and improves its appearance.


Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure. It does not have the long downtime associated with many skincare procedures. You can return to your regular routine immediately. A light application of makeup for a few days is all you need to look presentable in public. After a day or two, there should be no visible reminder of the procedure. Microneedling at TAOM & Skincare offers many benefits and few drawbacks. While home microneedling kits are available, they are very different from the procedure offered by experienced practitioners. Studies have not concluded whether these at-home devices are safe or whether they provide the same results as those performed in-office.


Q: What conditions does microneedling treat?

A: Microneedling is used to treat both old and new acne scars, stretch marks, sagging skin, and fine lines. It can also be used to improve the general tone and firmness of the skin as well as reduce pore size.

Q: What should I expect during the procedure?

A: The practitioner will first clean your skin thoroughly. You may then have a numbing cream applied to your skin to help you stay relaxed and comfortable during the procedure. The microneedling device is then rolled over your skin. The needles penetrate the upper layer of skin. After the microneedling procedure is complete, a serum is applied to the treatment area to help the skin heal and provide hydration.

Q: What will I look like after the procedure?

A: Some redness is normal immediately after the procedure, but it fades quickly. By 48 hours after the microneedling process, the skin should return to normal. You may also experience some areas of slight pin-prick bleeding as well.

Q: Does it hurt?

A: It is normal to experience a little discomfort during the procedure. Talk to your practitioner about the use of a numbing cream to alleviate this issue.

Q: Is the procedure risky?

A: Like other skin procedures, there is a risk of post-operative infection, but it is very small. The pin-pricks created by the microneedling device close within an hour of the procedure, so, as long as the work is done in a hygienic setting, the odds of infection are incredibly small.

Q: Who should avoid this procedure?

A: While microneedling is considered a safe procedure, there are some people who should avoid or postpone treatment. Individuals who are currently pregnant or breastfeeding should postpone treatment. Current open wounds or abrasions on the treatment area are also a reason to delay treatment. Anyone who has received radiation therapy to the skin within the previous 12 months is not a candidate for this procedure. Individuals with current skin infections or herpes simplex in the treatment area should not receive treatment. Lastly, individuals who have a history of healing poorly, or developing hypertrophic or keloid scars should not undergo microneedling.

Q: When will I see results?

A: Most people see results after their first treatment. Treatments can be repeated every four to six weeks. The number of treatments depends on the individuals goals, and treatments can be repeated until the client is happy with the results. Generally, four to six treatments, spaced 30 days apart, are used for general skin firming and tone improving reasons. For scar reduction, three to six treatments.

Q:How long does treatment take?

A:Depends on the area treated. Face takes approx 30 minutes.

Q:Can you add other treatments with this procedure?

A:Yes, you can also add AHA peel and Celluma LED light for anti aging.

  • Texture Improvement
  • Acne Scars
  • Photo-Aging
  • Facial Scar Revision

The Benefits of Dermaplaning Dermaplaning

What is Dermaplaning?

dermaplanningDermaplaning is an effective and safe exfoliation procedure.  It uses a sterile surgical scalpel to shave the surface of the skin to remove excess dead skin and peach fuzz hairs. The tool is held at a 45 degree angle and is brushed along the skin to remove the hair and skin cells.  The procedure is only performed on the face and is not used for shaping the eyebrows, which the hair is much thicker. It is generally a stand alone procedure, but we apply an enzyme peel in conjunction with Dermaplaning; it does create deeper product penetration boosting the products effects.   The procedure makes skin look and feel smoother and will reduces the appearance of acne scars.

What are the Benefits of Dermaplaning?  

  • Provides deeper product penetration
  • Removes soft facial hair that traps dirt and oils
  • Promotes smoother skin
  • Safe procedure for removing dead skin cells and “peachfuzz”
  • Reduces the appearance of acne scars
  • Diminishes the look of fine lines
  • Works on all skin types
  • Instant results and no downtime
  • Enzyme peel is applied (extra at no cost)

How Often is Dermaplaning Performed?

Dermaplaning is usually performed every three to four weeks.  It is good to have the skin complete its normal rejuvenation cycle, which is thirty days, before going back and having the treatment done.  The procedure generally will remove between two to three weeks of dead skin from the facial area.

People who suffer from acne or have excess oil should not have dermaplaning performed.  The reason why you want to avoid this procedure is because if the hair is removed from the area, the oils may cause bacteria growth which could lead to acne breakouts.

What to Expect After the Procedure:

Sometimes after dermaplaning, the skin will end up peeling slightly.  This normally only happens when there is not enough time in between treatments to let the hair’s growth cycle be completed.  This is why it is important to leave enough time between visits to get the best results.

There is no need to worry about the hair on your face getting any darker.  Since dermaplaning only targets the vellus hair (peachfuzz) the hair will grow back the same size and color.  It is physiologically impossible for the hair to grow back thicker and dark, so no need to panic and worry.

Never do this procedure at home. Leave it to the professionals at The Art of Massage & Skincare  to ensure a safe and effective treatment.  If you are interested in scheduling an appointment or just learning more about dermaplaning or any of our other treatments please call today!

About the Art of Massage Grace's Philosophy

Like a farmer who considers his soil sacred, or the musician who exalts a melody, so does Grace Hyndman (McCarthy) regard massage therapy as a talent to be revered. This became evident when she named her business.

“I wanted customers to know that massage isn’t just about muscle and bone – it also has the capacity to penetrate your soul,” Grace says, “That’s why our therapists often feel like artists when they apply their physiological expertise. So I called it The Art of Massage.” Thus was born the Westhampton Beach facility she opened in 2001.

Regardless of the therapeutic modality, the common thread is Grace’s passion for improving the wellness of her clients. “I opened The Art of Massage because of my desire to help people in pain,” says the Long Island native, who earned her massage therapist license from the State University of New York in 2000.

Among Grace’s favorite offerings at The Art of Massage is Ashiatsu Oriental bar therapy™, the famed ancient method in which a therapist grasps ceiling bars while executing a barefoot massage. In fact, she’s proud to say she was trained by Ruthie Hardee, the founder of the therapy. “Ashiatsu is great for really deep, intense work”, says Grace.

Grace’s venue may be situated in the Hamptons – the upscale resort area where power brokers abound and celebrities party – yet there’s a wonderful tranquility when customers step through the door. That’s no coincidence, she insists. “Everyone is treated equally here”, says Grace, who ensures that all her services remain affordable. “We treat local workers who come here to relax sore muscles, just as we do famous artists, movie producers and summer visitors. The important thing is that my staff provides everyone a soothing touch, a balm for the mind, and serenity for their soul.”

A lofty goal? Certainly. Yet it’s why Grace hand-selected her staff of twelve, all of whom share her belief that an artful set of hands can heal your spirit. Or, as 19th-century British poet John Ruskin once exclaimed: “Fine art is that in which the hand, the head, and the heart of man go together.”
