Acne can cause embarrassment and long-lasting scars in your complexion. For those suffering from the effects of acne or other skin problems, microneedling provides effective skin therapy. Microneedling is a form of Collagen Induction Therapy that smoothes wrinkles, improves depressions from acne scarring, and reduces the appearance of stretch marks. It is one the newest, easiest, and most effective skin treatments available in Tucson, Arizona.
Unlike laser treatments or peel procedures, microneedling uses a small needle to create tiny, vertical wounds in the skin spaced apart from each other. This requires less healing time while still jumpstarting your natural rejuvenation process. This procedure can be customized to the appropriate depth for your skin and its aesthetic needs, which can be determined during your consultation.
Patients can benefit from microneedling, or dermabrasion skin therapy, if they suffer from mild skin trouble. The therapy can treat thin or thicker skin, darker or lighter skin colors, as well as spotting and scarring. Although typically used for the face, microneedling can also be used on areas like the arms or hands. If you are looking for a minimally-invasive therapy for your skin blemishes, you may find the perfect solution in this treatment. Performed in the Tucson area, microneedling has little downtime.
Micro-needling is performed with a small needle device that is applied to the problem areas of the skin. The treatment is usually performed in-office and takes little time to complete. Because your comfort is our highest priority, a topical numbing agent can be used so that you’re relaxed. You can expect some redness and tenderness of the skin after treatment, but this usually subsides after a few days. Nevertheless, you can resume your normal activities within 24 hours.
You can schedule your skin therapy session by contacting our office. Discussing the results, past treatments, and experiences of Dr. Eades’ previous patients is recommended, because understanding the full scope of dermabrasion techniques can help you decide if Microneedling is a solution for you.
