What your dermatologists in Peoria, Avondale and Phoenix want you to knowdermatology

You might have heard about microneedling and now you want to know if it will work for you. The truth is microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, has been used for over 25 years to diminish the early signs of aging and to renew and rejuvenate your skin. Your dermatologists at Arrowhead Dermatology want to share the facts about microneedling collagen induction therapy. They have three convenient office locations in Peoria, Avondale and Phoenix, AZ, to serve you.

Microneedling treatment begins with your dermatologist using a numbing cream on the area to be treated. Then a tool containing tiny micro needles is used on the treatment area. The needles cause micro damage to the surface and deeper layers of your skin. Your body produces more collagen to heal the micro damage. After treatment you may notice your skin is slightly pink or red; this is perfectly normal. After healing, your skin will be firmer and more rejuvenated.

Microneedling is an excellent treatment to even out skin tone and makes your skin look younger. It helps with:

  • Scarring from acne and other skin conditions
  • Wrinkles, fine lines and other early signs of aging
  • Discolorations, hyperpigmentation, and freckles
  • Sun spots and other signs of sun damage
  • Large pores and other unsightly skin issues
  • Stretch marks on your legs and other areas

Microneedling is often combined with the application of therapeutic or aesthetic serums and other skin products to diminish the signs of aging or skin conditions. Vitamin serums and other products are applied first and then followed by microneedling treatment which helps the products penetrate into the skin. Between four and six treatments are needed to get the best results.
