Microneedling in Phoenix, AZ
Collagen is important for younger looking skin, but our bodies produce less collagen as we get older. Microneedling at Arizona Facial Plastics, PC, is a cosmetic treatment that stimulates collagen production to give you smooth, flawless skin. Board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Farhan Taghizadeh, specializes in micro needling treatments for men and women who live in and around Phoenix, Scottsdale, Paradise Valley and the surrounding communities of Arizona.
What is Microneedling?
Micro needling is a cosmetic treatment that we offer at our medical spa for men and women who want to have flawless, young skin. The treatment works by creating tiny micro-injuries to the skin. When your body detects that the skin is being injured, it produces more collagen to repair the micro-wounds. The additional collagen not only heals the wounds but also increases skin volume that fills in lines and wrinkles.
Benefits of Microneedling
Dr. Taghizadeh recommends microneedling for improving skin texture on the face and body. Common cosmetic problems that can be treated with microneedling are:
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Sun damage
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Stretch marks
- Poor, dull complexion
- Scar treatment
What Can I Expect from Microneedling?
Dr. Taghizadeh uses Vivace Microneedling for micro needling treatments.
Vivace Microneedling involves the use of Microneedling Fractionated Radio Frequency (MFR) energy that is delivered to the deeper layers of skin. Dr. Taghizadeh uses the two settings on the system to stimulate collagen production and eliminate bacteria in the pores. The treatment does not create micro-injuries to the outer layer of skin.
How Does Microneedling Differ From Other Types of Skin Treatments?
Microneedling offers a way to stimulate collagen production to improve skin health and appearance. The treatment can be used on the face and body to treat many cosmetic concerns.
Recovery from Microneedling
For some patients, the skin feels sensitive but not tender after a micro needling treatment. Your skin will be red, and you should avoid sunlight for the first 48 hours. You should avoid wearing make up for at least one day. Any skin care products should be extremely gentle to your skin, and you should wear sunscreen when outdoors.
What Will Microneedling Do for My Skin?
Most patients need three treatments to give the skin the necessary anti-aging boost. The results of your microneedling treatment continue to improve with time, but you may want to have follow-up treatments to provide a greater benefit to your appearance.
Will Everyone Benefit from Microneedling?
With the exception of patients who have certain skin conditions, micro needling is considered a safe and effective treatment for common skin flaws.
