What is Microneedling?
Phoenix microneedling, also referred to a collagen induction therapy, is a cosmetic procedure in which ultrafine surgical-grade needles are passed over the skin. This process creates controlled damage below the surface of the skin, which activates your body’s immune response. As a result, your body will increase its production of collagen and elastin replacing old, damaged cells with new, fresh, skin cells – and create more youthful, supple facial skin.
What are the Benefits of Microneedling?
Microneedling is a minimally-invasive technique which creates a series of tiny injuries to the skin, allowing triggering the natural regenerative processes of the body. The device with which microneedling is performed allows our skincare professional to administer the treatment with precision, targeting areas which most need correction. Creating injuries at a controlled depth allows your skin to repair itself from common maladies including:
- Fine line and wrinkles
- Acne scars
- Loss of elasticity
- Sun spots and age spots
- Stretch marks
- Dull skin tone
Am I a candidate for microneedling?
All patients who require treatment for skin issues such as scars, wrinkles, or hyperpigmentation would make good candidates for microneedling in the Phoenix & Scottsdale area with Dr. Andres. It is also a great treatment for those who are looking to reverse early signs of aging. That said, patients who are dealing with active skin infections will need to resolve them before undergoing the treatment.
What Can I Expect During Microneedling?
In order to prepare your skin for skin needling in Scottsdale, you should discontinue the use of all skincare products with acids at least three days before your scheduled appointment. A topical numbing treatment will be applied to your skin, so you are comfortable during the procedure. Once the numbing effect is achieved, your technician will roll the device over the surface of your skin, creating thousands of tiny injuries to stimulate your skin to increase the production of natural collagen and elastin. When the procedure has been completed, you will be one step closer to the youthful glow you crave.
