Microneedling is a popular skin rejuvenation treatment that stimulates the skin’s natural healing response, which in turn leads to collagen production and smoother, brighter skin. This happens by introducing microneedles into the skin to create micro-channels which jumpstart your skin’s natural wound-healing processes. This generates collagen and boosts cell turnover for healthy, rejuvenated skin over time.
Microneedling can be used on all skin tones, and is relatively painless. It can effectively address the following concerns:
- Acne scarring
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Mild to moderate discoloration
- Uneven skin texture
Microneedling is performed at our Phoenix office. During treatment, tiny sterile needles are introduced into the surface of the skin to create channels in the skin. Once this process is complete, active ingredients are applied to the skin so that they can be more easily absorbed into the skin through the channels. Most patients can tolerate this process, but we can supply a topical numbing cream if needed.
Most patients require a package of treatments for best results from microneedling. This is because continued collagen generation can effectively address your skin concerns over time. You can return to your regular schedule after each session, and your skincare specialist can give you detailed instructions on how to take care of your skin in the days following treatment.
Microneedling is one of the most effective ways to build collagen and maintain healthy skin in the long-term. To get started on the ideal package of treatments for you, contact our office by calling or filling out our online form.
