Reducing the Appearance of Acne Scars

Medical grade microneedling at ZL is performed using the FDA approved SkinPen. The pen delivers a controlled and precise microinjury to trigger your body’s natural remodeling process which stimulates the formation of restorative collagen and elastin the skin needs. Many people are haunted by acne scars, and search out various ways to make the facial skin appear less damaged. SkinPen Microneedling brings new hope, as treatments can create a smoothing effect, reducing the look of acne scars significantly.

Your skin is unique, and you have personal issues that you want to resolve. Our team of highly-trained Aestheticians and nurses will evaluate your skin’s condition and advise you whether microneedling will help you have smoother, healthier, suppler skin. If you have acne scars, this treatment may produce results equal to or superior to laser treatments, as it is easier to tolerate and has fewer potential side effects. At ZL MedAesthetics we boast some of the best micro needling Tucson has to offer.

What can be treated with SkinPen Microneedling?

Microneedling in Tucson has become very popular in addressing textural issues of the skin. The appearance of acne scars, fine lines, body scars, and stretch marks can all be improved with treatment.

We also use microneedling to introduce some of our peels and products to a deeper layer of the skin. Think of this like aerating your lawn before you lay down fertilizer. At ZL Med Spa we are striving for the best microneedling in Tucson.

Preparing for Microneedling

Detoxify and deep clean

with hydrafacial

At ZL, we believe it is crucial to prepare the skin before a procedure such as microneedling. On a daily basis we accumulate toxins, impurities, dirt, debris, and dead skin cells which dull and block pores. Prior to receiving a microneedling treatment, a Hydrafacial is performed to detoxify and deep clean the pores. Removing impurities from the skin allows for better penetration of products during microneedling and allows for a quicker recovery and more dramatic results. You can have the hydrafacial immediately prior to microneedling. If your skin is especially congested, we recommend biweekly hydrafacials leading up to your microneedling treatment.

Home treatment to support your skins ability to produce new collagen

The products you use on a daily basis are critical to maintaining the results from your microneedling treatment. At ZL, we recommend Alastin Regenerating Skin Nectar prior to receiving a microneedling treatment. The Skin Nectar is comprised of peptides, antioxidants, and botanicals to clear damage and debris from the extracellular matrix. Think of prepping your skin like weeding before you plant new seeds in your garden.


Is it painful?

At ZL, we have custom numbing crème applied before your treatment, so the process is essentially pain free. Our patients say it feels like light sandpaper is rubbed across the face. The treatment can take anywhere from 20-40 minutes.

How much downtime?

This varies greatly from person to person, but plan on 2-4 days of improving redness. After the first 24 hours, light makeup can be used. At ZL, we send you home with customized recovery products to improve redness and optimize your results.

How many treatments will I need?

To maintain skin texture and tone we recommend 3-4 treatments a year. However, for certain conditions such as scarring or deeper lines and wrinkles, we commonly recommend 4-6 treatments every month and then maintenance treatments every few months.

How soon will I see results?

You will notice improved tone and a brighter complexion after the redness resolves in the first week. Full improvement takes several weeks to months depending on extent of skin condition which was treated.

What Should I Know Before Getting SkinPen Microneedling?

  • We recommend coming in for a complimentary consultation to discuss your customized treatment plan.
  • You’ll want to minimize sun exposure for the first week after treatment, so don’t have this treatment right before a trip to the beach or any extensive sun exposure!
  • If you are getting ready for a big event, such as a wedding, we recommend starting treatments 3 months prior to the event so the results are achieved at the perfect time for the big reveal.
  • If you have current acne, we typically recommend waiting for a microneedle treatment and instead will decongest the skin with hydrafacials, a home regimen, and peels.

Love them! I have been in for 2 HydraFacials with dermaplaning and some other enhancements. Everything about the interior is clean, beautiful and comfortable. I have had my services with Laura and Diana, and they couldn't be more knowledgeable and patient with all of my silly questions.
