Microneedling in Ann Arbor
Get glowing, smoother skin with microneedling in Ann Arbor.
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that helps minimize the signs of aging and improves the appearance of acne scars, wrinkles and enlarged pores.
Microneedling in Ann Arbor at Medical Aesthetics Ann Arbor medical spa is done using the first FDA approved device called the SkinPen. The SkinPen works by creating a series of microscopic channels into the dermis to stimulate the skin’s natural production of collagen and elastin, helping the skin to look and feel healthier. Microneedling works great for enlarged pores, fine lines, scars and acne scars, stretch marks and uneven skin tone.
Within a week of your first microneedling treatment, you will notice an improved skin texture, with scars and deeper wrinkles improving after a series of treatments. The effects of microneedling are cumulative so improvement will continue to be seen up to 6 months.
Before your appointment for microneedling in Ann Arbor, we will first provide a consultation to ensure this procedure is the right one for you and to discuss your goals for microneedling. From there we will walk you through the procedure and address any questions you may have.
We will begin by washing the area and then your skin will be numbed with a topical anesthetic, to insure your comfort throughout the treatment. Using the medical grade SkinPen we will evenly treat your skin, during which you may feel pressure, warmth or tingling. This stimulates the skin’s natural production of collagen and elastin. The result is renewed skin plumpness, tone and elasticity for a more refreshed appearance.
When we are finished your skin will appear flushed. We will apply a thin layer of hydrogel to protect your skin and will send you home that and a calming cream with instructions on how to use them. We recommend you refrain from applying any other products for 24 hours.
Most patients achieve their desired results from microneedling in Ann Arbor after 3 to 4 moths from their final treatment. This is because the collagen growth we are stimulating takes time to rebuild and rejuvenate the skin. However, you will notice improvements in tone and texture after just one or two treatments.
