Microneedling Near Me in Dearborn MI

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a revolutionary and minimally invasive procedure used to treat skin issues by encouraging collagen production. Microneedling has become very popular with people wanting to reduce the appearance of acne scars, sagging skin and stretch marks, as well as in certain anti-aging procedures, such as eyelid surgery and sun spots. The ideal candidate for microneedling is healthy, and has skin concerns that haven’t responded to home treatments, or other types of procedures, such as peels. Microneedling is often used prior cosmetic surgery for anti-aging and other concerns.

Is Microneedling the same as SkinPen?

Traditional microneedling procedures involve rollers, containing many tiny needles that are gently applied to the treatment area to create microscopic injuries, which induce collagen and elastin. The SkinPen is also a completely safe and clean solution because the needle cartridges used are disposable. In addition, treatment sessions with the SkinPen take far less time than using traditional derma rollers. The SkinPen also penetrates slightly deeper into the derma layer than traditional rollers, which stimulates more collagen production and stimulates the healing process, which provides a solution to deeper and wider area scarring problems. SkinPen microneedling treatment can only be offered through a Physician’s Office, or at a facility under medical directorship as it is classified as Medical Device by the FDA. Laser Duet offers SkinPen microneedling, so reach out to us today.

SkinPen is used for the correction of multiple complexion issues, including:

  • Enlarged pores
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scarring
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Dull skin tone and texture

What can microneedling treat?

Microneedling works to encourage your skin to produce more collagen. The tiny inserted needles create micro-injuries to the skin, and the way the skin responds is to make new, collagen-rich tissue. The new skin tissue is produced naturally and is more even in texture and in tone. It is natural for the skin to lose collagen, due to age or injury. As the tiny needles encourage the skin to make new tissue, more collagen is produced, therefore making the skin firmer.

Microneedling is most commonly used to target certain areas of your face.

The most targeted areas are:

  • Acne scars
  • Age spots
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Large pores
  • Other types of scars
  • Reduced skin elasticity
  • Uneven skin tone

What are the benefits of Microneedling?

Laser treatments can cost about four times as much as microneedling, making it a far more affordable option. Microneedling also works very effectively for those with darker skin tones, which unlike laser treatment does not involve heat, which can affect your skin’s pigmentation. Your dermatologist will be happy to help you decide what’s best for your skin, and suits your budget.

Microneedling can also effectively help with issues that many of us encounter:

  • Acne
  • Hair loss (also called alopecia)
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Large pores
  • Reduced skin elasticity
  • Scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Sun damage
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

Microneedling treatments are beneficial simply because the production of new collagen can actually reverse years of damage caused by sun exposure and improve the appearance of acne scars, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, and other skin texture issues.
