Microneedling is a minimally-invasive cosmetic procedure that has become immensely popular for its ability to tighten and resurface the skin and treat acne scars. It involves the use of small needles to create tiny punctures in the skin, stimulating the body’s natural healing response and promoting collagen production. This results in a smoother, more youthful complexion with a reduced appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars.
We understand that every patient is different, so we take a personalized approach to every microneedling procedure at Luminescence Medicine in Chandler, AZ. Let us help you improve your skin’s texture, color, and tone.
What is microneedling? Microneedling uses tiny needles to create micro-channels in your skin, stimulating your body’s natural healing process and encouraging collagen production. This procedure uses a handheld device equipped with multiple microneedles. The device improves the overall appearance of your skin.
If you want an alternative procedure to improve your skin, microneedling technology can eliminate numerous skin problems, such as discoloration, scars, and wrinkles. The microneedles in the portable device cause micro-injuries in the skin and trigger a self-healing process. As a result, the skin produces more collagen and elastin, which improves overall skin health.
Microneedling Procedure & Treatment Details
Microneedling is a safe procedure for all skin types. Your aesthetician will apply a numbing cream to the treatment area to reduce pain during the treatment. Then, using a device that looks like a pen, the team at Luminescence Aesthetic Medicine will make punctures in the skin.
After the procedure, you may experience redness and tenderness. In addition, minor bleeding may occur but it is minimal and stops within a couple of minutes at most. However, with an average puncture, there is slight bleeding, increased skin tightness, and swelling.
For optimal results, Dr. Pettit and his team recommend microneedling treatments at Luminescence in three to eight sessions.
Expected Microneedling Results
Microneedling is an effective procedure for rejuvenating your skin. It causes the body to shed old, damaged skin and promotes collagen production for fresh skin cells with reduced fine lines and wrinkles while also minimizing age spots, brightening your complexion, and eliminating acne scars.
As with many minimally invasive skin treatments, microneedling results aren’t immediately visible. Results from the first treatment are visible after two to four weeks and may include the following:
● Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
● More even skin texture
● Reduction of hyperpigmentation
● Diminished acne scars

Whether you are considering a microneedling treatment for your face, arms, back, or any other area, many people have questions before undergoing the treatment. Some FAQs include:
Am I an Appropriate Candidate for Microneedling?
Microneedling procedures can be performed on almost all skin types. However, patients with wound healing problems, those taking acne medications, pregnant or breastfeeding should avoid the treatment.
What is Microneedling with Exosomes & PRP?
Microneedling with exosomes is a safe and effective treatment for a variety of skin concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, dull skin, hyperpigmentation, and acne scars. Exosomes contain growth factors, cytokines, and other signaling molecules, which play a critical role in cell-to-cell communication and tissue regeneration. Clinical Studies have shown that Exosomes increase fibroblast production by 180% and elastin production by 300% , reduce inflammation and post treatment redness. Applied topically, the penetration and absorption of the exosomes into the deeper layers of the skin, accelerate healing and optimize regenerative effects for improved microneedling results and recovery.
Microneedling with PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) enhances skin regeneration with a serum derived from the patient’s blood and is applied during the microneedling procedure. This serum is rich in platelets and helps accelerate the skin’s natural healing process while promoting collagen production and improving the skin’s overall texture, tone, and appearance. Patients can enjoy the best results by combining microneedling with PRP.
