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.

"UPDATE!!!! I got a chemical peel last week to treat the pigmentation. My first ever! Not going to lie, it was painful (worth it) and I wanted to stop. But Felicia was so patient with me! She was a cheerleader throughout and kept my mind off of the burning sensation.I was in and out of the office in about 30 minutes, by the next day, peeling had started around my mouth. In 5 days flat, my face was completely cleared and so, so fresh!They're calling me baby face at the office and I don't mind it one bit!"- R.B. / Yelp / May 03, 2018

"Love all the staff, very friendly and informative. Beautiful, clean office. Reasonable prices and so many procedures that they offer. Parking was easy. Highly recommend this place, got Botox and dermaplane facial and I'm loving the results!"- K.P. / Yelp / May 01, 2018
"Had my dermaplaning treatment and custom facial with Suzanne and it was amazing from start to finish. Check in was a breeze (I recommend printing the paperwork and filling it all out before your appointment because there are quite a few pages). The rooms are nice and relaxing with THE most comfortable bed sheets-almost fell asleep a few times. Definitely recommend this place and I will most certainly be back! Thank you again, Elevate!"- J.R. / Yelp / Apr 12, 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.
