How Does Microneedling Work? (Numbing Cream used for this Procedure)

Microneedling Therapy also called Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), and Percutaneous (through the skin) Collagen Induction (PCI), is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a Professional Microneedling Pen.

The mechanical action of the pen allows the needles to puncture the skin and create a controlled injury at a specific depth. Each puncture creates a channel that triggers the bodies natural healing process to fill these micro wounds by producing new collagen and elastin in the papillary dermis. In addition, new capillaries are formed for improved blood supply.

With Microneedling, the top layer of the skin is parted without being damaged, leaving the skin intact.  It does not “burn” your skin like peels or more invasive lasers. The needle penetration depth can be adjusted from 0.25mm to 2.50mm into the skin depending on the area of the body and the skin condition being treated. Using skin needling consistently will trigger the bodies repair process until the desired level of skin rejuvenation is achieved.

Microneedling results in the production of new collagen and elastin, improvement in skin tone and texture, firmness as well as reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks.

Microneedling Combination Procedures

At Michigan Health Centers we combine our microneedling  with Hyaluronic Acid or PRP(Platelet Rich Plasma) to rejuvenate, hydrate and heal the skin.

The micro-channels created by the needles allow for deeper penetrations of topical serums for more effective results. This procedure can increase the skins ability to utilize the nutrients by up to 3,000 %.

When Combing microneedling with your bodies own PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) you kick start the healing process. The rejuvenation action that is started by the micro-wounds is dramatically enhanced by the growth factors contained in PRP. Studies have shown enhanced skin rejuvenation by adding PRP to your microneedling procedure(aka Vampire microneedling).  We can even take it one step farther and add a 10 minute facial with our PROFESSIONAL GRADE RED LIGHT to further enhance the procedure.
