Microneedling Treatments – Minneapolis St. Paul, MN
For a variety of skin conditions, including acne and scars, along with stretch marks and loose skin, medical skin care specialists can use a variety of treatment methods to improve the appearance. Microdermabrasion and chemical peel are most commonly used, and are often recommended at our Twin Cities top medical spa. No single treatment, though, is right for every individual or condition. Microneedling, is another alternative treatment that we often recommend. Also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, it rejuvenates the skin. Combined with the use of specific topical products, it provides gentle, effective treatment for:
- Aging, sagging skin
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Skin rejuvenation
- Enlarged pores
- Stretch marks
- Scars from burn, surgery and acne
- Other skin problems
How Micro Needling Works
It is a handheld device that uses multiple tiny needles to pierce the skin vertically in affected areas. The needles are disposable and sterile, and are only used once for your safety. It is completely adjustable for speed and depth. An experienced professional at our medispa moves the device across the treated area after determining the best depth and speed. The precise procedure stimulates the body’s own production of collagen and elastin to make the skin firmer and smoother. This healing process continues over time, producing steady improvement in appearance for the treated areas. Typically, multiple treatments are scheduled over time from 4-6 weeks apart.
What to Expect from Micro Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy
For minimal needle depths, the treatment is painless. Topical anesthetic creams are used for deeper needle penetration to relieve pain. You can expect to see results after your first treatment, and those results will be more and more apparent with follow-up sessions. After this procedure, you may experience minor redness, which can be covered up by cosmetic concealers. Most patients resume normal activities immediately, with no downtime. Following treatments, it’s important to protect your skin from extensive harsh sunlight. Topical skin care products may be recommended to speed up the recovery.
