A new treatment for wrinkles, sun spots, acne scars and hyperpigmentation.

Microneedling 1As we age, our skin is naturally changes, we begin to see wrinkles, sun spots, hyperpigmentation, and acne scars. To treat these facial skin issues, and others, The Henry Ford Cosmetic Center offers microneedling treatments to help reduce the signs of aging and improve facial appearance.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling treatments use a hand-held device that uses fine needles to shallowly puncture the surface of the skin and break down wrinkles and scar tissue, stimulating new collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin.

Microneedling treatments are appropriate for all skin types, and can be used on many parts of the body with minimal risk of infection or scarring. You may also combine this treatment with platelet-rich plasma injections to utilize your body’s own healing and growth factors, which will amplify the rejuvenating effects.

Does it hurt?

A topical numbing cream is applied prior to treatment to make the procedure comfortable.

How long does the treatment take?

Is this an FDA approved treatment?
