What Is Microneedling?
When over-the-counter skin treatments are no longer effective for combating the signs of aging, but you are not ready for surgery, minimally invasive microneedling SkinPen treatments may be ideal for rejuvenating your skin. Modern Medical Spa is thrilled to offer microneedling to Dallas, TX men and women. SkinPen is an innovative tool that uses fine-gauge needles to safely and effectively create micro-injuries in problem areas of the skin. These micro-injuries trigger the body's natural production of collagen and elastin, two building blocks in the skin that work to enhance the appearance and health of your complexion. Often performed with other skin treatments, like serums or platelet-rich plasma (PRP), microneedling may help minimize scars, pores, stretch marks, and other skin blemishes. Schedule a consultation at Modern Medical Spa to learn more about the benefits of microneedling with SkinPen or other personalized options for meeting your skin and cosmetic goals!
"I adore the ladies I’ve met at Modern Med Spa! I called to inquire about tackling numerous skin issues before my daughter’s wedding in the fall. Rachel took the time to really consult with me about my needs over the phone…as I live out of town. On appointment day I was greeted by a smiling Emily who helped me with check in and introduced me to everyone. That day I saw both Katie and Clara for various treatments. Both women were so friendly and knowledgeable. I knew I was in good hands. I love the fact that the entire team worked together to help me develop a timeline so that I can look my best for my daughter’s wedding. They were also great about being sure I received any promotional discounts that were available. I look forward to returning next month!"- S.C. / Google / Mar 25, 2022
"A friend referred me to Clara at Modern Med Spa and going there is the best decision I’ve made skincare-wise in a very long time. Clara consulted with me and put me on a whole skincare regimen that is much simpler and easier than the mix and match inconsistent mess I was doing before. I ended up joining their monthly membership program which has given me a chance to try out some other services. HIGHLY recommend Emily and Katie for hydrofacials. I had one with Emily today and the #11 on my forehead is gone without injectable’s. The ladies who work here are very kind, personable, and knowledgeable. And I am getting long term results that I can actually see since they usually do before and after photos. So glad I found this place and I highly recommend it."- D.P. / Google / Jun 17, 2022
"Cannot recommend this place enough! I got a hydro facial with Emily yesterday, and my face has never looked clearer and more hydrated! Emily is both so professional and so warm! She explained everything so clearly as she performed the facial, so the equipment didn’t seem as scary. It was totally painless, and I will definitely be coming back!"- M.O. / Google / Jul 29, 2022
"I want give a glowing recommendation and review to both Katie and Rachel! Katie - does an amazing job at facials and everything related, she goes out of her way to ensure you are comfortable and are well informed every step of the way of what she is doing and the products used. I love the fact that she recommends ONLY what is absolutely necessary for your skincare routine. She is the only person I trust with my skin! Rachel - She is someone that understands the word patience and goes above and beyond to not only ensure you are comfortable but are aware are knowledgeable of everything injectable related. She gives a clear course of action of next steps and impacts injectables could cause. I was one of her last appointments and it was getting really late and she did not rush me one bit to clearly explain the process and she ensured I was comfortable at all time...truly someone with delicate hands. Also, Rachel personally called me the following day to check-in, which I've never had anyone call me after an appointment to check-in so this was just one of those little things that makes a huge difference."- S.C. / Google / Apr 26, 2022
"I’ve here a few times now and I’ve grown to love it! Edith is super friendly and high energy which leaves you with a good mood after your facial :)"- A.C. / Google / Apr 06, 2022
Should I Get Microneedling?
Microneedling (also called collagen induction therapy) stimulates the body's natural abilities to produce collagen and elastin, which can tighten, tone, and smooth the surface of the skin. This treatment can also improve the appearance of large pores, acne scars, and stretch marks, among other complexion irregularities. During your private consultation, one of our medical aestheticians will perform a skin analysis and help you determine if this option is right for you. Microneedling with SkinPen treatments may be ideal for men and women with:
- Mild to moderate skin laxity
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Uneven texture
- Acne scars
- Stretch marks
- Sun damage
- Dull skin tone
What to Expect with Microneedling
Microneedling with SkinPen is performed within one of our tranquil treatment rooms and is generally completed within 30 – 60 minutes. This collagen induction therapy causes small skin wounds, which generate new skin cell growth and increase collagen production. It may take around 1 – 2 months following microneedling for you to notice significant changes in the appearance and health of your skin. Once healed, however, your skin should appear healthier, firmer, and brighter. While a single treatment may be sufficient for treating minor concerns, additional microneedling sessions at our Dallas, TX med spa could be more beneficial for targeting moderate skin irregularities. We can help you determine the ideal number of treatments to optimize your results and overall complexion.
How much does microneedling cost?
During your initial consultation, Dr. Genecov will evaluate your skin and then develop your custom treatment plan. Once this is complete, he will discuss your costs and what to expect during the procedure. Modern Medical Spa frequently has specials on treatment packages, so ask about our current deals in your appointment.
What exactly is microneedling?
Collagen induction therapy or microneedling is a nonsurgical procedure to improve the health of your skin. Collagen is a fibrous protein that helps keep your skin smooth, supple, and tight. Eventually, your natural supply of collagen is reduced, and your skin becomes thin and loses elasticity. Microneedling causes tiny skin wounds. These micro-injuries prompt your skin to increase its collagen production and generate new skin cell growth. Once healed, your skin looks healthier, firmer, and brighter.
Can I combine other treatments with microneedling?
In the process of microneedling, channels are created in your skin that help other treatments to penetrate the lower layers. This is why microneedling is often performed with other treatments like vitamin-rich serums or PRP (platelet-rich plasma). Microneedling with PRP has become known as the vampire facial. During your consultation, Dr. Genecov will explain what treatments may be performed along with microneedling and which would most benefit your skin.
How many treatments are recommended for optimal results?
Most patients receive 3 – 6 microneedling sessions to get optimal results. However, the number of sessions you require will depend on the condition of your skin and your goals. Microneedling may be safely performed every 4 – 6 weeks. During your consultation, Dr. Genecov will be able to estimate the number of sessions you will need after assessing your skin and listening to your goals. Once you have reached your goal, Dr. Genecov suggests scheduling maintenance sessions two times a year.
Is microneedling safe for everyone?
On the whole, microneedling is appropriate for all skin types and tones. Since the skin injuries created are so small, there are very few side effects after the treatment. Microneedling can be applied to most areas of skin, including the arms, face, neck, thighs, chest, and lower legs. Microneedling isn't recommended if you've been on Accutane within the last 2 – 3 months, plus if you have an active skin infection, herpes simplex, or open wound. Additionally, you might not be able to get microneedling if you are pregnant, nursing, or getting radiation therapy.
