Microneedling In Scottsdale, Arizona

Microneedling also known as collagen induction therapy, creates micro-punctures in the skin using sterilized tiny needles. This skin rejuvenation treatment can help treat the appearance of fine lines, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, large pores, uneven skin tone, and the skin’s overall appearance. During this procedure, the microneedling device uses multiple needles to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to produce new collagen and elastin.

Automated microneedling sessions also creates superficial micro-channels which can be used with topical gels, creams, and serums to help improve the appearance of the skin texture. We offer several microneedling procedure options depending on your unique needs and goals.

Post-Treatment Care

It is important to follow the instructions provided by your physician after a microneedling session. This may include applying antibiotic ointment or numbing cream, avoiding direct sunlight exposure and wearing sunscreen, and avoiding certain activities such as swimming or hot tubs. Additionally, it is recommended to avoid using harsh skin care products immediately following treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

The benefits of microneedling can include a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. Microneedling can also have a positive effect on the appearance of hyper-pigmentation and hypo-pigmentation, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks and create a fresher appearance or glow to the skin.

A sterile cartridge tip containing 12 points is attached to the microneedling device. Our providers will apply a thin layer of topical gel to your skin and select the appropriate pen setting based on your unique needs. Next, in a single motion, the pen will be gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered.

The feeling associated  is similar to light sandpaper being moved across the skin. While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating microneedling tip reduces discomfort while the applied hydrating gel also makes the treatment more tolerable. Our patients are quite comfortable with the usage of numbing cream applied to the skin prior to procedure.

The procedure takes 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the area treated.

 

Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin. The total healing time depends on the  setting used and the number of overlapping passes your skincare professional performs. On average, patients are red up to 2 to 4 days. Some patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours. Quality skincare products, provided by your skincare provider, can help to speed up the post-care process.

Patients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several days and weeks. Results continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment as collagen production continues.

 

Some patients only require a single treatment, once per year to achieve optimal results. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 4-8 weeks apart. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars, your skin care provider may recommend 6-8 sessions at 6 week intervals.

As part of the body’s healing ability, growth factors respond to tissue injury and initiate and promote the conditions for healing. This is used for many conditions including fine lines, wrinkles, melasma and pigmentation, as well as hair loss. We offer stem cell derived growth factors as an upgraded topical infusion with our microneedling treatments for a more impactful anti-aging treatment.
