At Dyson Dermatology, we are certain to always stay at the forefront of new procedures and treatments so that our Tucson patients receive only the best in skincare treatments. Dr. Dyson and her team of dermatologist, physician assistants and licensed aestheticians perform microneedling to target skin cells from the inside out and bring out youthful, glowing layers.
Microneedling- also called collagen induction therapy- is an advanced skin rejuvenation procedure that revitalizes tired, aged skin. The procedure re-introduces lost collagen and elastin into skin that has become saggy or wrinkled from age or sun exposure, or that is marked by acne scars.
Microneedling is performed through the use of a minimally-invasive hand held device that is comprised of tiny, fine needles. The technology has been specially developed to puncture the top layer of the epidermis on a microscopic level, to trigger your skin’s natural healing process. The treatment is minimally painful but has great implications when it comes to smoothening wrinkles on the forehead, around the eyes, around the mouth and lips, and on the chin.
Dr. Dyson and the provider also regularly recommends microneedling for our Tucson patients who want to even out hyperpigmentation or discoloration caused by exposure to the Arizona sun, as well as to patients who want to tighten skin around the face. In fact, the potential benefits of microneedling are not just limited to treating loose facial skin- collagen induction therapy can be used to stimulate the rate of collagen production in all parts of the body including the legs, chest, arms, back, and buttocks.
Our patients typically opt in for an average of four to six microneedling treatments to achieve the results they want. Our experienced team will customize the depth of the needle depending on the area of your body you are targeting and the depth of wrinkles or scars to be treated. Each treatment is done right in the comfort of either our Tucson or Green Valley offices, both of which are fully equipped to make your experience as smooth and pleasant as possible. Mild swelling or redness is normal after each session but should subside within the first couple days following treatment.
A microneedling treatment at Dyson Dermatology involves almost no downtime, so you can get straight back to your normal routine without missing a beat. It is a simple yet effective way to make you look and feel younger, and can be supplemented with other treatments as recommended by Dr. Dyson and the provider for most noticeable results.
