WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING?
Does your skin need some TLC? If commercial skincare products aren't effective, and you don't want to undergo surgery, then you might consider a minimally invasive treatment for skin rejuvenation like microneedling. Leading dermatologist Dr. Jay Mehta is pleased to offer microneedling with SkinPen at Arizona Skin Institute in Surprise, AZ. Microneedling uses fine needles to effectively and safely create micro-injuries in the skin. These tiny channels prompt the body's natural production of collagen and elastin, two nutrients that contribute to the appearance and health of your skin. Often combined with other skincare treatments, microneedling may help reduce the appearance of acne scars, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and more. If you live in the Phoenix metroplex, and are searching for a solution for your dermal concerns, get in touch with our office to learn more about how microneedling might help you.
IS MICRONEEDLING RIGHT FOR ME?
Microneedling is often a great option for men and women who want to improve the overall look and feel of their skin. It's ideal for those who struggle with acne scars, rough skin texture, pigmentation issues, mild skin laxity, wrinkles, and overly large pores. During your initial meeting with Dr. Mehta, he can assess your concerns and determine if microneedling is right for you or if a different skin treatment would be better suited to your goals.
Microneedling is performed on-site at our dermatology office and typically takes about 30 – 60 minutes to complete. First, we'll clean your skin and apply a numbing cream to the target area to provide optimal comfort during your treatment. We'll then apply the handheld SkinPen device evenly over your dermis until the whole area has been treated. Then, we'll massage a soothing moisturizer into your skin, and you'll be free to resume your routine. You may experience some mild redness and itching, but other than that, there is no downtime associated with this treatment.
