Everyone wants soft and beautiful skin. Yet with factors like sun damage, acne, wrinkles, dryness, and age constantly wreaking havoc on your body, a glowing complexion can be difficult to achieve. However, there is a great way to dramatically improve the overall appearance of your skin: microneedling.
Microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, is a non-surgical procedure in which tiny needles are applied to the skin in order to encourage your body’s own healing response. Dr. Zuliani offers microneedling treatments for improving fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores, and many other conditions. Treatments can be customized to improve the look, color, and texture of your skin without the downtime typically associated with more intensive procedures. Microneedling can be performed with or without PRP.
MICRONEEDLING WITH PLATELET-RICH PLASMA (PRP)
Your blood contains a substance known as platelets, which are vital to your body’s natural wound-healing process. These platelets contain growth factors that have been shown to stimulate tissue generation and repair.
PRP is a concentrated form of blood plasma that has elevated levels of these growth factors. When paired with microneedling treatments Zuliani Facial Aesthetics, PRP will encourage even greater tissue repair, collagen production, and increase the overall effectiveness of the procedure.
Who might benefit from Microneedling & Microneedling with PRP treatments?
Dr. Zuliani recommends microneedling for women and men of all skin types. Microneedling is an effective option for people who want an alternative to laser treatments. Your personalized session can address many skin concerns on most parts of the body, including:
Wrinkles and fine lines
Hyperpigmentation and sun spots
Acne, surgical, or post-traumatic scars
Dull, rough, or uneven tone and texture
Your microneedling treatment with Dr. Zuliani’s team will be personalized, based on your unique skin type, concerns, and goals.
How are Microneedling & Microneedling with PRP treatments performed?
Microneedling is an in-office procedure at Zuliani Facial Aesthetics in Bloomfield Hills. First, your skin will be cleansed and a topical numbing cream applied to the treatment area for optimal comfort. If PRP is being used, blood will be drawn and processed, concentrating the platelets for maximum results. The appropriate needle depth setting is chosen based on your skin’s unique needs and the handpiece is carefully moved over the treatment area, creating micro-injuries to the skin in order to stimulate your body’s healing response. Treatment usually takes about 30-60 minutes, depending on the size the area targeted and whether you opt for the PRP.
What can be expected after a Microneedling & Microneedling with PRP treatment?
Downtime and recovery from microneedling are minimal. Patients typically experience mild redness, swelling, and tenderness after the procedure, but those effects tend to fade within 1-3 days. A topical cream can be applied to further soothe away any discomfort, and sunscreen should be used to protect healing skin. Patients opting for PRP tend to heal faster from the treatment.
You’ll begin to notice a brighter, healthier glow to your skin, and it will gradually improve over the next few weeks as the healing process progresses. Full results can be seen up to six months post-treatment as new collagen production continues. A series of 4-8 treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart, is recommended for the best outcome.
