In a treatment administered by a licensed professional, collagen and elastin production rush to treat the slight damage caused by tattoo-style needles, working to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and stretch marks. Healing time can take one to five days, sometimes longer for larger scars.
Scottsdale Skin Needling
Scottsdale Skin Needling's Linda Dunn-Carter has dedicated her career toward rendering the obsolete saying, "That's going to leave a mark." After 400 case studies and more than 2,000 procedures, Ms. Dunn-Carter has refined a skin-needling treatment called dry tattooing or the DC method, in an attempt to reduce the appearance of aging and scars. A tattoo machine fitted with specially designed needles first numbs the treatment area, then abrades the affected tissue. According to Ms. Dunn-Carter, this abrasion helps to invigorate the skin's collagen and elastin production, which can slow with age and after injury. The treatment can smooth stretch marks and wrinkles, as well as the scars that result from acne, surgery, or arm-wrestling with Edward Scissorhands. Ms. Dunn-Carter’s clients can complement their needling with other aesthetic services such as permanent makeup and facials.
