Dallas microneedling treatments are one of the most requested appointments at Mara’s Med Spa, and for good reason. This minimally invasive procedure lends incredible results and has become a favorite for celebrities, influencers, and everyday folk alike.
But what is microneedling, why should you choose Dallas microneedling treatments at a med spa, and what results can you expect from the treatment?
Our skin loses collagen as we age and due to injuries. Microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, uses a dermal pen with multiple tiny, sterile needles that puncture the skin and cause physical trauma. This trauma then prompts the derma, a deeper layer of skin, to produce collagen. And when your skin produces more collagen, the results are smoother, plumper skin.
This treatment is popular with Texans because microneedling produces excellent results for a wide variety of concerns with little downtime, especially compared to other, more expensive and more invasive cosmetic procedures.
What Skin Concerns Does Microneedling Address?
While many associate microneedling with facial treatments alone, the procedure is actually ideal for other areas of the body as well.
Microneedling may help address many skin concerns, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles.
- Acne scarring.
- Skin pigmentation issues.
- Stretch marks.
- Loose skin from weight loss or liposuction.
- Skin rejuvenation.
In addition, medical estheticians (such as the experienced professionals at Mara’s Med Spa) can use microneedling to deposit beneficial serum, such as growth factor, hyaluronic acid, PRP or vitamin C, deeper into the skin, boosting the results of the treatment.
What To Expect At Your Dallas Microneedling Appointment
At Mara’s Med Spa, your first appointment for microneedling will be your free consultation. In this consultation, we will get to know you, your skincare routine and your concerns, and determine the treatment plan that will provide you with the results that will give you the confidence boost you deserve.
We will then schedule your first procedure appointment. We say first because, for optimal results, we recommend multiple appointments (although you will likely see results as soon as this first appointment!). After removing all make-up and refraining from using lotions or serums, your medical esthetician will apply a numbing cream over the treatment area to ensure the maximum level of comfort during the treatment.
Once your face is completely numb, your Dallas microneedling treatment begins. The Eclipse MicroPen we use has no visible needles, so if you are squeamish around needles, rest assured that you have nothing to fear at Mara’s!
Your medical esthetician will pass the pen over your skin in small sections several times. After each pass, your esthetician will apply a custom-blended serum designed to increase the treatment results. The process should be painless due to the numbing cream, although some patients report a slight tickle or scratching sensation.
Once the procedure is complete, your esthetician will apply a cooling and calming mask to reduce inflammation and redness, followed by a luxurious calming cream.
The final step is receiving after-care instructions, and then you are on your way!
After-Procedure Skin Care For Dallas Microneedling Treatments
After your microneedling session, you can expect your skin to be pinkish-red for 24-48 hours. You may feel as if you have a sunburn. If you experience discomfort or inflammation after the numbing cream begins wearing off, an ice pack may help reduce irritation.
Starting 48 hours after your Dallas microneedling appointment and lasting up to five days, your skin may flake as your derma layer begins active repairs and releases collagen.
We recommend our microneedling patients avoid applying make-up, sweating, and going in saunas or hot tubs to prevent infection for the first few days after the procedure.
As mentioned above, before leaving Mara’s Med Spa, our team of dedicated medical estheticians will review your after-procedure skin care instructions in detail, so you will go home fully informed and ready to see the fantastic results!
Results will vary from person to person, but many patients report seeing a decrease in fine lines and wrinkles after their very first microneedling session. Your skin will be plumper, smoother, and more youthful looking.
But to achieve the best, most long-lasting results, your team of specialists at Mara’s will likely recommend investing in a skincare regimen tailored to your needs. Fortunately, this can be done easily, from the comfort of your own home, with Mara’s new online store.
Dallas Microneedling is Safe for All Skin Types
Microneedling can be a safe and effective treatment for all Texans who want flawless skin, regardless of skin type or tone.
However, pregnant or breastfeeding women should advise our medical estheticians before treatment and delay treatment until the numbing cream can be safely applied to the treatment areas.
Also, patients with open lesions, such as cold sores or cystic acne, may want to delay treatment, as microneedling may result in a severe outbreak.
