What is Micro-Needling?

anti-aging concept, portrait of beautiful woman with problem andOnce women reach their mid-30s, the production of collagen naturally declines, and its quality diminishes. When it starts to taper off, your skin has insufficient internal support that contributes to wrinkled and sagging skin. There are an assortment of skin treatments available at the North Scottsdale Laser and Skin Clinic that help with these effects of aging, and micro-needling may give you the results you’re looking for. Here’s a quick overview of this skin needling treatment:

The Micro-needling Process

Micro-needling is also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, which invigorates the texture and tone of your skin’s surface and is especially productive for removing scars and stretch marks. The procedure utilizes a medical dermal pen, which resembles a small paint roller, covered in a series of fine, sharp and sterile acupuncture needles closely spaced together. When the needles are rolled over your skin, tiny channels that spread below the most outer layer of skin are created. As the area is treated, your body responds to the “injured skin” by generating more collagen and elastin. As a result, your skin is stimulated and will plump and thicken as a result.

Results of Micro-needling

  • Softer fine lines and wrinkles
  • Diminished acne scarring
  • Lighter stretch marks
  • Improved pigmentation
  • Reduction in pore size
  • Brighter skin tone

Benefits of Micro-Needling

  • No further skin damage
  • No requirements of avoiding the sun, unlike other treatments that make your skin sensitive to UV light
  • Shorter downtime–you may even be back at work the next day!
  • Virtually painless
  • Can be performed on any part of the body

After just one treatment, you will see noticeable results, but a continued series of treatments is needed to create enough elastin and collagen to absorb and achieve optimal effects. How well your body naturally responds depends on the area and the severity of blemishes being treated. Once you finish the number of sessions recommended by our physician, your skin tone will be more even, leaving you feeling confident with a younger and fresher appearance.
