Skin Needling Procedure

What’s the procedure?Detox-Therapy-Spa-Tucson-skin-care-skin-needling3

If you have a low tolerance, we first locally anesthetize the target area with a topical anesthetic. Once the skin is numbed, a needling instrument lightly abrades the wrinkled area. It will make many tiny holes in the creased area. The needles cause tiny little holes in the top layer of skin, not major damage like a surgical wound or laser resurfacing which damages many layers of skin. Since the damage to your skin is so minimal, there’s little evidence that anything has been done after the first day. You may have a light crusting of the skin in certain areas if we concentrated on a specific spot or two. It will look like a scab for a day or so. This is generally not the case, but is possible. There are no chemicals, or toxins injected into your body! No surgery or stitches. No blisters or skin peeling! It’s a totally safe, natural way to fight the aging process!

What does it feel like?

You will feel little pricks on your skin. If it is more than uncomfortable, ask for more topical anesthetic. Once the procedure is complete, the area may feel tight and itchy, somewhat like a few day old sunburn.

How long does it take to heal?

Total post-procedure recovery will be 5 to 7 days on average. Some scabbing of the procedure area will occur, but a few days of keeping it clean and using our all natural Skin Ease Cream will help the healing process. Mineral make-up may be worn the next day if the procedural area is healed over.

Most people see results almost immediately, and keep seeing results during the healing period thru the following month.

How long does it last?

We do charge a cancellation and No Show fee. Please refer to our Spa Etiquette & Guidelines page to read full details.

I came into Alternatives in Health Care seeking an all natural way to look younger, and Debbie has helped me achieve that! After my first derma rolling session, I noticed an all over tightening of my skin. By my third session, a nodule that I’ve had on my jaw line for a long time has decreased dramatically in size. I’m happy that I found Alternatives in Health Care. Debbie is friendly and professional; the atmosphere at her place is relaxing and soothing. I’ll be referring my frien…
