This procedure is usually repeated three to six times with at least 4 weeks in between each treatment.

Before starting the procedure, your dermatologist will clean the area around your scar. They will also apply a local anesthetic to freeze and numb your skin, so you won’t feel pain during the procedure.
Your dermatologist will then insert a needle horizontally into your skin, beneath the scar.
They will then gently move the needle from side to side under the scar to help release the scar from the underlying tissue. You may notice a soft snapping sound as your skin fibers are broken.

I visited Dr Juvita for a skin and hair related issue that I was facing for a few years. With one consultation and one dosage of medicines, I have seen credible results. Dr Juvita is especially wonderful and she also calls you back in a few days to see how you’re recovering. Would 10/10 recommend this to friends and family. Very satisfied visit.
I went in for a consultation for my hair thinning and very visible scalp. Dr. Juvita was able to assess it as stage 4 female pattern and suggested treatment options. Knowing that at that stage, hair regrowth is minimal - she explained everything clearly and also what is achievable vs what isn't. I've done 7 sessions of treatment so far and we're seeing thicker hair, lesser hairfall. She and her staff are really professional and everything is done quick and painless.
