When home skin treatments aren't effective but you aren't ready for surgery, try a nonsurgical procedure for skin rejuvenation like microneedling. Novo Med Spa is pleased to offer microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) with the SkinPen device at our office in Frisco, TX. Microneedling uses multiple fine-gauge needles to safely and effectively create micro-injuries in the needed areas of the skin. The micro-injuries trigger the body's natural production of collagen and elastin, two nutrients that enhance the overall health and appearance of your skin. Easily combined with other treatments, like serums or PRP (platelet-rich plasma), microneedling can help reduce scars, pores, and stretch marks. Schedule a consultation at Novo Med Spa to discover more about the benefits of microneedling and ways to customize the treatment for your skin concerns and goals.
"I've had several treatments over the past few months at this spa from Elizabeth with fantastic results. Elizabeth has done my Microneedling, PICO Genesis, Laser Genesis, and most recently my Botox. I have to say after several treatments and procedures, I am happy with the results. I've seen an improvement in my skins texture, the removal of sun damage, and pore size. It was very evident that Elizabeth is an experienced RN when she took the time to actually measure and mark for my Botox. Not everyone I've received Botox from in the past has taken the time to do this, so it was sort of refreshing and comforting knowing my injector wasn't just "winging-it." Elizabeth's attention to detail, knowledge, and professional, friendly attitude is exactly what you want and expect from a Med Spa. I will definitely be back!"- C.C. / Google / Feb 26, 2019
You may benefit from microneedling if you have slight to moderate skin issues, like a decrease in firmness or an uneven texture. Microneedling treatments can also improve the appearance of pores, scars, and stretch marks. You need to be willing to wait a while before seeing benefits from your microneedling treatment since the collagen and elastin will need a month or longer to have an effect on the skin, but you will see natural-looking results and a healthier, stronger complexion.
Collagen induction therapy with microneedling is done in one of our office procedure rooms in about 30 – 60 minutes with numbing cream or a local anesthesia if desired, but patients typically experience mild or no discomfort. The skin being treated will be cleansed before the SkinPen microneedling handpiece is passed evenly over the area. After the microneedling is done, a topical treatment like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or a vitamin-infused serum can be applied for deeper penetration of the nutrients into the skin. A moisturizer will be massaged in along with sun protection since your skin will be sensitive after the treatment.
What to Expect
Following the procedure, you might develop light swelling and redness for about a day, but this should resolve on its own. It may take about 1 – 2 months as the collagen and elastin levels increase before you see visible improvements in the health and appearance of your treated skin. You should plan to get about 4 – 6 maintenance treatments every 4 – 6 weeks for the best results and long-term skin health.
