Facial treatments are one of the best ways to look and feel younger! But with so many options for facials, it can be tough to know where to start. Just about everyone wants their results to look natural, so what better way to improve your look than by using your own body’s natural healing process!
Enter microneedling in West Bloomfield! Read on to learn more about our different options at Forum Health of West Bloomfield.
What is Microneedling?
In West Bloomfield, our clinics use a technique called microneedling, which is the process of creating injuries to the skin at a microscopic level—after applying a numbing agent to the treatment area to help mitigate or prevent pain. As a result of the body’s biological healing process, these microwounds help to stimulate the body’s collagen production while creating new blood vessels and cells.
Ultimately, collagen is what helps to reshape and remodel the skin’s scar tissue. During the healing process, your body will also replace the microwoulds with new blood vessels and dermal tissues.
The SkinPen treatment is the only microneedling device with FDA clearance to treat acne scarring in patients 22 years old and above. But treating moderate to severe acne scars isn’t the only thing SkinPen can do! Some other common skin concerns we can treat with this device include:
- Fine Lines & Wrinkles
- Surgical Scars
- Stretch Marks
You can even combine your SkinPen treatments with platelet-rich plasma to produce even better results and faster healing times!
For those looking for SkinPen facials in West Bloomfield, you can expect a relatively short treatment process following an initial consultation. If you’re a good match for SkinPen, you can expect to receive a series of three 30-minute treatments. These treatments will include a topical numbing cream to help minimize any discomfort.
When your provider finishes the SkinPen treatment, it’s possible you may experience some mild symptoms such as redness, dry skin, or tenderness. We’ll provide you with post-procedure care instructions to help minimize symptoms and maximize your treatment results!
DermaFrac & Infusions
Another type of microneedling treatment offered by Forum Health, DermaFrac differs from SkinPen in its ability to include different infusions to create a radiant glow! Some of these infusions include:
- Vitamin C
- Skin Clarification
- And Growth Factors
Because it’s a microneedling treatment, the DermaFrac device also works by creating microwounds in the skin—specifically below the outer layers and above the capillaries and nerve endings. What these micro wounds also create, however, are microchannels in the skin’s dermal junction. The microchannels are what allow us to add infusions to bring out your most beautiful self.
Why it Works
The DermaFrac device makes this all possible through its incredible precision. This handheld piece helps hold the skin in place by using a vacuum-like suction—while our aesthetic professionals create microchannels and add infusions at the proper skin depth to create fantastic results. This vacuum technology also allows us to pull the topical solutions across the skin to ensure optimal infusion.
Not only does this treatment help with exfoliation, but most patients find DermaFrac facials in West Bloomfield to be very comfortable. The treatment takes roughly one hour to perform based on an individual’s unique skincare concerns and goals. And because it’s so gentle, you won’t need any downtime following your treatment!
Some concerns we can treat with DermaFrac include:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Aging skin
- UV damage
- Sun damage and pigmentation
- Enlarged pores
- The strength of the skin
- Oily, congested skin
