Micro Needling in Dallas, TX
It is no secret that aging brings a lot of change to one’s appearance. While those changes may not be welcome by a majority of people, micro needling is a solution in the form of a simple and easy procedure that can make the aging process more acceptable. With Micro Needling, it is possible to take years off of your face while improving the overall texture and appearance of your skin. If you are a resident of Dallas, Plano, or the surrounding communities of Texas, you no longer have to accept the physical changes to your appearance that come with growing older. The Bloom Medical Spa, led by medical director and board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David G. Genecov, offers microneedling with the Eclipse MicroPen™ for those men and women who don’t want to accept looking older as part of getting older.
What is Micro Needling?
Micro needling is a procedure which uses an electric needling device to stimulate the creation of elastin and collagen in the skin. It works by breaking down old scar tissue and stimulating rapid generation of new skin cells, which help to smooth out any existing fine lines and wrinkles, resulting in a refreshed and more youthful appearance. Because the body is stimulated into creating its own skin cells, the result is completely natural-looking and enhances the patient’s facial features and overall appearance.
Why Choose The Bloom Medical Spa for Micro Needling?
All of our micro needling treatments are performed by Carolyn Craft, R.N., or Sherri Alford, LME.
Benefits of Micro Needling
The main benefit of micro needling is a rejuvenated appearance that looks completely natural and is performed without surgery. The procedure works to stimulate the natural elastin and collagen composition in your body which, in turn, improves the overall smoothness and appearance of the skin. In addition to a refreshed appearance, there are several other advantages of microneedling:
- Little to no discomfort during the procedure.
- Works to diminish existing fine lines, wrinkles, and scarring.
- Will not cause scarring.
- Ideal for both men and women.
- Only a small amount of downtime required post-treatment.
What is the Eclipse MicroPen™?
The Eclipse MicroPen™ is the newest innovation in collagen induction therapy (CIT) or microneedling. It works to improve the overall tone, smoothness, and texture of the skin while also eliminating acne scarring, wrinkles, and fine lines. This revolutionary treatment stimulates the skin’s production of collagen and elastin, thereby revealing a smoother, younger-looking appearance over time. The procedure itself involves tiny needles that puncture the skin to create controlled micro-injuries which, in turn, prompt increased collagen and elastin production by the skin’s cells. This process is part of the way skin heals itself naturally, with increased collagen filling in fine lines, wrinkles, and creases to soften their appearance over time.
Benefits of the Eclipse MicroPen™
In addition to being performed as an anti-aging treatment, micro needling can also be done in order to increase the effectiveness of skin care products. Because micro needling creates tiny channels in the skin, skin care products are able to penetrate the skin’s surface at a deeper level, thus increasing their potency. The Eclipse MicroPen™ is safe for use anywhere on the body and on all skin types. Its needles are made of medical grade stainless steel and contain no nickel, which greatly reduces the chance of allergic reactions. The Eclipse MicroPen™ has multiple speed settings which allow the treatment to be personalized to the patient’s specific skin needs and concerns as it is able to reach several depths of the skin’s layers. The procedure not only increases production of collagen and elastin in the skin, but also increases blood circulation in the skin, and stimulates the development of new capillaries. The skin is left looking rejuvenated and lines and wrinkles are significantly diminished in appearance. The Eclipse MicroPen™ boosts the skin’s appearance by improving its texture and creating a softer composition. The increased production of new collagen will continue over time as the depressed areas of fine lines, scars, and wrinkles are filled in and softened by renewed plumpness, moisture, and increased elasticity of the surrounding skin. The Eclipse MicroPen™ has also been proven effective in treating areas of hyper-pigmentation and hypo-pigmentation, scarring, and stretch marks.
What Areas Of The Body Can I Treat with the Eclipse MicroPen™?
The Eclipse MicroPen™ has been shown to work on all parts of the body, including:
- Neck and neckline
- Hands and arms
- Legs and feet
Your Eclipse MicroPen™ Treatment
Your Eclipse MicroPen™ treatment is customized to your individual concerns and desired results. The treatment requires only a quick visit to The Bloom Medical Spa. A topical hydrating gel will first be applied to your skin to help relieve any pain or discomfort you might experience during the procedure. After the gel has been applied, the MicroPen™ is placed against the skin while being moved across the treatment area in one direction. This motion allows the 12 sterile needle tips to gently break the skin, stimulating the skin to increase collagen production as a result of injury. The sensation of the needles has been described as the feeling of sandpaper rubbing against the skin. The speed of the action, along with the analgesic gel that was applied pre-treatment, helps to prevent most discomfort that may be felt as part of the process.
Eclipse MicroPen™ Recovery
Following your micro needling procedure, your skin may appear red in the treatment area. This is a minor, temporary side effect that should subside within 24 hours. Those patients who undergo a more intensive treatment that requires overlapping passes of the Eclipse MicroPen™ may experience this redness for anywhere from two to four days after treatment. Following the post-treatment skin care recommendations made by the doctor can help to speed up healing time.
When Will I See Results from Eclipse MicroPen™
Improvement may be seen immediately, but as the body’s natural healing process increases the skin’s collagen production, visible improvements in the skin’s tone and volume will be seen for up to six months. While one treatment may be all it takes to heal a minor area of concern, two to three treatments performed at six to eight-week intervals is recommended for optimal results. Those patients who are looking to treat deep wrinkles and creases, acne scars, or areas of extreme past sun damage may require up to six to eight separate treatments in order to see maximum benefits and transformation.
