Tucson Microneedling

Microneedling increases the production of collagen and other healing factors by causing trauma to the skin.

How does Microneedling work?

Collagen is an essential protein that helps keep the skin looking youthful, with a firm, smooth, and stretchy texture.Aging causes the breakdown and weakening of collagen in the skin, contributing to wrinkles and other signs of aging.Skin can also lose collagen due to injuries, such as acne scarring, stretch marks, or other scars.It is important to realize that microneedling is not a quick fix, as it involves the growth of new skin. It can take several months for a person to see the full results of the procedure.

How can Microneedling help me?

Microneedling creates thousands of tiny injuries to the skin. This triggers a healing response that releases a cascade of growth factors, which in turn boosts production of the body’s own collagen.

Microneedling FAQ

You can treat virtually any area of the face and body with this versatile method. We provide patients with microneedling on the face, neck, décolletage, belly area, hands, thighs, and more!

Most patients tolerate the procedure very well with little to absolutely no pain at all. If you do need some pain relief, you can take over-the-counter pain and inflammation remedies in oral form.

This also varies per patient but the minimum recommended to see results is 4 with an average of 4-6 treatments needed for optimal correction.

Most people experience redness during and after the procedure, like a mild sunburn. This is expected and encouraged because it means inflammation has occurred and the healing process is initiated.
Dry skin, burning, itching, peeling and tenderness are also possible post-procedure, and if post-treatment instructions are followed these should all be temporary.

Microneedling is very commonly used for acne scars and can be used for scars all over the body. The micro-punctures cause tissue remodeling and over time scars will lighten, flatten and become smaller after a series of treatments.
