Are you concerned about the effects the natural aging process have made on your appearance? Does it feel like your favorite skincare products and at-home remedies are not as effective as you want them to be? Have you considered pursuing a treatment to achieve a more youthful appearance, but a surgical procedure does not feel like the best fit for you and your lifestyle? Consider micro-needling! These non-surgical, minimally invasive treatments encourage your body’s natural collagen production processes to minimize the appearance of unwanted signs of aging. Discover the possibilities and benefits of treatments during a consultation with our team at Southwest Michigan Plastic and Hand Surgery in Battle Creek or Portage, MI!
What Is Micro-needling?
Micro-needling is a non-surgical, minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment. By creating microchannels on the skin, this treatment promotes the creation of new collagen. Collagen provides your skin with structure for a youthful, firm appearance.
Micro-needling treatments may be used to reduce the appearance of:
- Acne scars
- Enlarged pores
- Fine lines
- Stretch marks
Our micro-needling treatments are performed with Secret™ RF by Cutera®. As this device creates microchannels on the skin, it delivers radiofrequency (RF) energy to the area. This simultaneously promotes tissue coagulation and collagen production.
What Could I Expect from Treatment?
Micro-needling treatments are performed as relatively simple treatments in the comfort of our Michigan offices. The Secret RF device is used to create microchannels on the skin. As this treatment only affects the deeper layers of the skin, the outer layer is not impacted by treatment. Treatment is most commonly performed on the face and neck, but other areas may be discussed during a consultation.
There is little pain or discomfort associated with Secret RF treatments. However, you may experience some pinching or mild warmth as microchannels are created. There is no set downtime associated with treatment, and you should be able to return to your normal activities. Skin may be sensitive.
Results achieved with micro-needling treatments will vary for each person and concern addressed. While you may enjoy some initial results, the best results take some time to enjoy as your body produces new collagen. A series of treatments may be recommended for the best results.
Am I a Good Candidate?
One of the most appealing features of micro-needling is how diverse it is as a treatment. It is a safe and effective choice for nearly all skin tones and types.
A consultation with our team in Michigan can help determine if this skin rejuvenation treatment is the best fit for you and your goals. As a series of treatments may be necessary to achieve and maintain the best results, they can also help you develop your individualized treatment plan.
