Effective and all-natural, microneedling is a popular facial rejuvenation procedure that can improve the health and appearance of your skin from the inside out.
Microneedling uses very thin needles to create micro-injuries to the treated area. Your body responds to these wounds by jumpstarting its natural healing process and producing fresh collagen and elastin.
These proteins improve the appearance of surface imperfections to restore or maintain a youthful and smooth complexion.
Microneedling produces very real, visible results.
When done correctly, it has the power to:
Because microneedling does not involve lasers or chemicals, it is safe for most of our patients – and all skin types, colors and tones. As long as you’re healthy and want to improve your complexion, there is a good chance that microneedling will be right for you.
When you arrive at the Paradise Valley Skin Klinic™ for your microneedling procedure, one of our experienced aestheticians will guide you to your private treatment room. Before beginning the microneedling process, we will review your aesthetic concerns, discuss your anticipated results, and outline exactly what to expect during your appointment.
From there, we will apply a topical numbing cream to ensure your comfort. We will then use our microneedling pen to gently puncture the skin using sterile, ultra-fine needles to create small, micro-skin channels into the skins surface. This process will stimulate your body’s natural healing response and promote the production of fresh collagen. This treatment can be combined with PRP for optimal results.
After your microneedling treatment you will not be able to apply make-up for 12 hours and will need to stay out of the sun’s rays for approximately 2 days. You will experience slight inflammation in the treatment area, though it will diminish within a few hours. Skin may remain pink for up to two days.
Your microneedling results depend on the production of new collagen and elastin. As such, they will emerge gradually over a period of several weeks.
Most of our Scottsdale clients need between two to four sessions spaced about one month apart for optimal results. From there, you will only need maintenance visits every three, six or twelve months, depending on the quality of your skin and your aesthetic goals.
