Microneedling Glendale, AZ

SkinVolution Laser & Vein Center in Glendale, AZ, offers microneedling to treat acne scars, wrinkles, pigmentation, and more. Collagen induction therapy or microneedling is an aesthetic procedure. It involves making microscopic wounds in the skin with tiny, sterilized needles using a pen-like skin-piercing device. These microscopic wounds trigger the body’s healing process to form new collagen. Collagen is the scaffolding in your skin that creates healthier, firmer, and tighter skin. Renewing collagen will give you a more youthful look.

Skin concerns targeted by Microneedling:
  • Acne scars
  • Age or sun spots
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Large pores
  • Reduced skin elasticity
  • Uneven skin tone
Microneedling Treatments

Microneedling is considered minimally invasive, with little recovery time. You may notice some redness, sensitivity, and peeling in your skin for a few days following the procedure. This response is caused by the micro injuries caused by the tiny needles. It is vital to use a medical grade mineral-based sunscreen since the skin will be more sensitive to the sun after the treatment.

Microneedling works quickly to rejuvenate the skin, and results can be seen within 7 to 14 days. To elevate microneedling results even further, you can do a series of sessions along with other complementary treatments like PRP/PRF.

If you have skin problems like psoriasis or eczema, you may want to avoid microneedling. Other reasons to avoid microneedling are: pregnancy, open wounds, history of forming skin scars, or recent radiation therapy.

Discuss your skincare goals with the professionals at SkinVolution Laser & Vein Center to determine if microneedling is the right treatment for you.

Eclipse MicroPen Microneeding in Glendale, AZ

The Eclipse MicroPen for microneedling treatment is an FDA-cleared microneedling device. It causes controlled micro-injuries stimulating your body’s natural wound healing process while minimizing cellular damage. The micro-channels created by the Eclipse MicroPen also allow the skin to absorb topical creams, gels, and serums.

The Eclipse MicroPen is a medical-grade automated microneedling device. Automated microneedling is an innovative technique in aesthetic medicine for treating fine lines, reducing large pores, and helping to clear up acne and injury scars. The Eclipse MicroPen used for microneedling also improves the skin’s texture, color, and tone. The Pen treats any area on the body, including the face, hands, arms, abdomen, and more.  Microneedling with the Eclipse MicroPen can also help with deeper wrinkles and scars, especially when used with PRP/PRF and when done as a series of treatments.

Skin conditions treated by the Eclipse MicroPen:
  • Acne
  • Acne scarring
  • Trauma scarring
  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Stretch marks
  • Tired, dull skin

Microneedling treatments done with the Eclipse MicroPen usually take around 30-60 minutes to complete. A topical anesthetic is applied before the treatment begins to keep the treatment comfortable.

The most dramatic results with the Eclipse MicroPen occur about four to six weeks after your final treatment. It is common to experience some mild swelling and redness for two to four days, but these resolve quickly with proper care.

Microneedling is great for all skin types. However, if you have open wounds, active infections, keloids, lesions, psoriasis, or other skin conditions, you may not be a good candidate for microneedling and should discuss your concerns with the experts at SkinVolution.

After a microneedling treatment, use a skincare regimen advised by your provider. Make sure you give your skin the care and nutrients it needs for healing and restoration after microneedling.

To enhance the effects of microneedling, we also offer microneedling with natural growth factor injections for complete skin rejuvenation. Please ask about this treatment during your appointment!
