Micro-Needling can improve the appearance of fine lines, acne scars, pigment, texture, tone and overall skin rejuvenation. It helps Phoenix patients to improve the appearance of scars and stretch marks too. The Growth Factor Serum aids in the healing process to promote a youthful appearance and bring back a healthy glow.


Also referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), Micro-Needling results are similar to that of some laser treatments and chemical peels. This is a safe and affordable skin renewal technique to restore the health and youthful appearance of your skin with natural results.


Not only is this therapeutic tool used for collagen production, its other uses include the treatment of skin tightening, aging skin, pore size reduction, skin texture improvement, stretch marks, and scarring from acne.


Although needling is most frequently performed on the face, it is an excellent treatment for anywhere on the body and for all skin types, including ethnic and fragile skin around the neck, mouth, and eyes.

  • How does Micro-Needling work?

    To stimulate collagen and elastin production, the micro-needling pen’s tip has 12 fine needles.

    The pen’s micro-channels allow the infusion of collagen stimulating products such as Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin-C serum or skin lightener for pigmentation to penetrate the skin’s surface. In response to the stimulus, the skin plumps and thickens. Dermacare uses a Growth Factor Serum during the treatment to aid in the healing process which helps to bring back a healthy glow to the skin’s appearance

  • What are the benefits of Micro-Needling?

    The resulting benefits of micro-needling include the softening of fine lines and wrinkles; the restoration of skin thickness, tightness and elasticity; the reduction of acne and minor scarring; and the improvement of stretch marks.

  • How many Micro-Needling treatments will I need?

    Micro-needling can be safely repeated every 4-6 weeks until the desired results are achieved.


    Some Phoenix patients may require only one treatment while a patient with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks, or acne scars may require 6-8 sessions. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 2-3 treatments.
