When over-the-counter skin products aren’t proving effective, but you aren’t ready for surgical procedures, try nonsurgical skin rejuvenation treatments, like microneedling. The Wellness Co. team is happy to perform microneedling (collagen induction therapy) at our office in Zeeland, MI. Microneedling uses several fine-gauge needles to safely and effectively make micro-injuries in the skin. The micro-injuries prompt the natural production of elastin and collagen, two nutrients that contribute to the overall health and appearance of your skin. Easily performed with other skin treatments, like vitamin serums or platelet-rich plasma (PRP), microneedling can help reduce scars, pores, and stretch marks. Schedule a consultation at Wellness Co. to discover more about the benefits of microneedling and how to personalize your treatment for your skin concerns and goals.
What to Expect from Microneedling
Collagen induction therapy with microneedling is performed in a private treatment room in about 30 – 60 minutes with numbing cream or local anesthesia if desired; however, most individuals report little or no pain and discomfort. The areas of skin being treated will be cleansed before the microneedling handpiece is passed evenly over. Our specialists may use the SkinPen® for your microneedling treatment. Another option is the AQUAGOLD® Fine Touch™ microinfusion, which uses tiny 24-karat needles to infuse hyaluronic acid and fillers into the top layers of the skin to create a smooth texture and reduce pore size. After the microneedling is complete, a topical treatment, like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or a vitamin-infused serum, may be applied for deeper penetration of the nutrients into the skin. A moisturizer selected for your skin type will be massaged in along with sunscreen because the treated skin will be sensitive following the procedure.
After your treatment, you might develop some swelling and redness for about one day; however, this should fade naturally. It can take around 1 – 2 months as the collagen and elastin levels increase until you notice significant changes in the health and appearance of your skin. You should schedule about 4 – 6 maintenance treatments performed every 4 – 6 weeks for ideal outcomes and long-lasting skin health.
