When home skin products aren't effective but you aren't ready for surgery, learn more about nonsurgical and minimally invasive treatments to rejuvenate the skin like microneedling. The Elevate Medical Spa and Cosmetic Surgery team, led by board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. Thornwell Parker and Dr. Kevin Hanz, is pleased to offer microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) at our office in Dallas, TX. Our microneedling technologies, the MicroPen or Skin Pen, use several fine gauge needles to safely and effectively create micro-injuries in the needed areas of the skin. The micro-injuries created by the treatment trigger the body's natural production of collagen and elastin, two nutrients that contribute to the appearance and health of the skin. A new innovation in microneedling is the use of HA's, growth factors, or PRP to aid in the production of these nutrients. In addition, the use of growth factors has been shown to decrease post-treatment inflammation. Schedule a consultation at Elevate Medical Spa to hear more about the benefits of microneedling and ways to customize the treatment for your needs and goals.
You may benefit from microneedling if you have mild to moderate skin issues, like a decrease in elasticity or a rough texture. Microneedling treatments can also minimize the appearance of stretch marks, and scars. You must be willing to wait a while before seeing improvements from your microneedling treatment, since the collagen and elastin will need some time to have an effect on the skin, but you will develop natural-looking results and healthier overall skin.

"This review is well overdue, but now you can be certain I am certain of my results! My skin wasn't horrid, but as it turns out, it needed work. I would get the usual lady cycle breakouts (even at 31) and the occasional pimple here and there. It would take 2-3 weeks to clear up. Who has time for that?! And then I was introduced to Felicia. Felicia put me on a ZO regimen in July. It took about a month for my skin texture to change. I did not even know that was a thing! My skin texture was smoother, brighter, and tighter! The compliments were rolling in!Fast forward to 6-7 months in, and if I may be self indulgent, am in love with my face. I always secretly wanted to be able to walk out of the house with no makeup (always sunscreen!) and look fantastic. With Felicia's guidance, I have been able to achieve that goal. My makeup consists of a tube of mascara, as I am confident enough not to hide behind foundation, CC cream, etc. It wasn't an overnight change, there are days where my face is itchy, there have been series of days of constant peeling and redness. However, I stuck with it, Felicia was a constant support, and I am so thankful I did."- R.B. / Yelp / Mar 13, 2018
"One of the most talented plastic surgeons. Dr Hanz is truly a miracle worker. Cosmetic surgery skills are amazing. He recently performed a very difficult hand surgery for my father in law. Amazing results. Highly recommend."- S.L. / Facebook / Feb 22, 2018

"Breast Implant Removal and Liposuction - The staff at Elevate was amazing from scheduling my consultation down to the actual procedure. I had two separate procedures performed by Dr. Hanz the first one being a breast implant removal and the second one was liposuction. Dr. Hanz and his staff were very helpful in answering all of my questions and concerns. My continued care after the procedures has been substantial as well. I would highly recommend Dr. Hanz and his staff for any of your cosmetic needs."- H. / RealSelf / Jan 30, 2018
Microneedling is completed in a private treatment room in about 30 – 60 minutes with numbing cream or a local anesthesia if preferred, but patients generally report mild or no discomfort. The skin being treated will be cleansed before the handpiece is passed evenly over the chosen areas. After the microneedling is complete, a topical treatment like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or a vitamin-infused serum can be applied to the treated area for deeper penetration of the nutrients into the skin. A protective moisturizer will be applied, along with UV protection since your skin will be sensitive after the treatment.
What to Expect
You may experience mild swelling and redness for about a day after the treatment, but this should fade naturally. 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 complexion. You should plan to get about 4 – 6 maintenance treatments every 4 – 6 weeks for ideal results and long-lasting skin health.
