It's true. A quick Google search of micro-needling yields positive reports on the benefits of micro-needling. So - what's the REAL story with skin needling? Does it really work? The answer is yes. There is solid medical science behind the procedure. And plastic surgeons almost unanimously agree that this minimally invasive skin rejuvenating procedure triggers your own body to create new collagen and elastin, resulting in improvement in skin texture, firmness, scar, stretch mark, and pore size reduction.
How does it work? At Vitality Skin & Body medical spa, we use the DermaPen. It contains fine needles that create tiny punctures to cause a controlled skin injury. Each puncture causes the body to react by filling these microscopic wounds with new collagen and elastin.
It is a brilliant skin treatment because it causes your own body to fight aging - a very natural solution to diminishing lines, wrinkles, dark spots, and acne scars. And while it is typically used on the face, neck, and décolleté, it can be used anywhere - arms, legs, thighs, etc.
For best results, a series of treatments are recommended. The skin care professionals at Vitality Skin & Body medical spa in Scottsdale, AZ will discuss your personal skin care needs and goals, and recommend the customized skin care program that is best for you.
There are numerous other skin treatments available, including a variety of laser therapies, wonderful facials, and facial fillers.

You open your door and a furnace blast of hot air hits you in the face. You get into your car after work and it feels like being shoved into a pizza oven. You lay by the pool and the dry air and beating sun sap the moisture out of your skin, burning it if it is unprotected.
What to do in July to prevent your skin from needing resuscitation? Research has identified vitamins C and E, as well as selenium, as vitamins that can help protect your skin from sun damage and even skin cancer. Research shows that taking supplements with 1,000-3,000 milligrams of vitamin C, 400 IU of vitamin E (D-alpha-tocopherol form), and 100-200 micrograms of selenium for maximum benefit. Of course check with your doctor to make sure these vitamins and minerals are appropriate for you before taking them.
Not only can these supplements help prevent skin damage, but research is pointing to the fact that reversal of wrinkles and skin discoloration, as well as protection from skin cancer may also be benefits of these anti-oxidants.
And, keep your skin hydrated and then protect the moisture from being zapped out by the heat, dry air, and sun. Did you know that Cleopatra of Egypt used shea butter? And that the average daily high in the summer is 112 degrees Fahrenheit? But not to worry, it's a dry heat... The Roman historian Cassius Dio describes Cleopatra as “a woman of surpassing beauty” who was “brilliant to look upon.” Clearly Cleopatra knew how to navigate the stresses of summer on her skin.
Shea butter is an off-white or ivory-colored fat extracted from the nut of the African shea tree and is a triglyceride (fat) derived mainly from stearic acid and oleic acid. It has healing properties for the skin as evidenced by its' use in Africa for burn care and even wound care. The name of the shea tree is the karite tree, or Tree of Life.
In addition to providing all of the practical daily care you can for your skin, don't forget that a good facial with a moisturizing mask is a wonderful jump start back to skin rejuvenation.

It's July in the Valley of the Sun. The sun is continuing to bake anything within reach of its' rays. Thirty minutes outside in the sun can make your skin look like a tomato. And when you are sunburned, all of the moisture is sapped out of your skin. Plus, did you know that damage from the sun is cumulative, and may not be visible for years?
Yet most Arizonans love to sun bathe, to float in the pool, to hang out at the lake. We are drawn to water to help us survive the summer. So, what are practical ways to still enjoy summer but not make sure skin take on a lizard like quality?
