Microneedling

Microneedling Facial in Happy Valley, AZ


Microneedling at Health Science Med Spa in Phoenix, AZ is a special experience that reveals undeniable results. We understand that anything with the word “needle” in it, may sound intimidating, so let’s break it down to put you at ease. Don’t worry, we will begin treatment with a cleanse, followed by a numbing cream that ensures you will have a pleasant and painless visit. After the numbing cream has fully activated, we will apply a serum for repair and healing benefits.

How microneedling works

Microneedling involves the use of fine, short needles that microscopically puncture the epidermis (outer layer of skin). By creating these small wounds, we are encouraging the production of collagen and elastin. Collagen is one of the most common and plentiful proteins in the body. Collagen helps your skin look fresh, healthy and soft, while also firming cellulite prone areas. In addition to these wonderful functions, microneedling in Phoenix, AZ also helps your skin repair itself and maintain moisture. 

Why microneedling is important

Elastin is equally as vital. This is a stretchy protein that aids in the elasticity of your skin especially when pulled and when making facial expressions. Without elastin, our skin would not hold its shape and structure. These proteins tend to decline as people age. However, with treatments like microneedling, you will increase and maintain a healthy amount of each. Microneedling helps with a variety of things such as, pigmentation issues, stretch marks, and alopecia.

What to expect after a microneedling treatments
