Microneedling Scottsdale AZ
Many of us are self-conscious with our physical appearance and how aging affects the skin. With the recent advancements in skincare technology, it’s now possible to achieve radiant skin through minimally invasive procedures with little to no required downtime. One amazing way that is possible, is through a new state-of-the-art method known as microneedling.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling is an anti-aging method that utilizes the concept of dermal micro-channels to rejuvenate the skin. The microscopic channels created during the procedure result in the production of natural skin healing compounds that provide the skin with improved texture, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, evens out the skin tone, tightens skin laxity, minimizes pore size and has the ability to treat problematic skin concerns such as acne scarring, surgical scars and stretch marks.
How Does Microneedling Work?
How it works, is through the use of tiny needles that penetrate past the dermis layer of skin creating a “controlled damage” that stimulates the body’s own natural healing response. This leads to a collagen response where new collagen and elastin proteins begin to reproduce, strengthening and restructuring the skin. Topical anesthetic is used to ensure comfort and create a virtually painless treatment.
Microneedling can be performed a variety of different ways to best fit your skincare needs. It can be done with or without Radio Frequency, as well as with the use of your own Platelet Rich Plasma. Radio frequency aids in anti-aging and is excellent for tightening the skin. Your own Platelet Rich Plasma contains over 70 different types of growth factors which enhances the amount of collagen and elastin that is being produced during the healing process.
What Does It Treat?
The microneedling device can be used on the face, neck, decolletage area (lower neckline and chest), and a majority of body parts, and treats the following skin ailments:
