What is Microneedling?

Microneedling treats fine lines and scars and issues with skin texture, tone and color with fewer side effects and faster recovery times than laser resurfacing treatments. This collagen induction therapy creates hundreds of tiny, invisible micro-injuries in the top layer of skin with fine needles. 

The micro-injuries created by a microneedling session encourage new skin cells to form by stimulating the body’s natural healing process, resulting in cell turnover, increased blood flow, and collagen and elastin production for smoother skin. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) may be added to microneedling treatments to activate additional collagen production.

Microneedling with the SkinPen®

What Is SkinPen®?

The SkinPen® is a microneedling device designed to help rebuild the skin’s extracellular matrix. With proven results lasting up to 6 months in many patients, the SkinPen® promotes tissue remodeling without scarring. 

This microneedling procedure works best on Fitzpatrick skin types II, III and IV, supporting a visual reduction in pore size, redness, stretch marks and acne scars. Noninvasive SkinPen® microneedling sessions take only 30 minutes to an hour.

Benefits of Microneedling in Dallas & Our Other Locations

Microneedling in Dallas may soften fine lines and wrinkles and improve skin tone and texture. You can also expect softer, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging and a reduction in the appearance of acne scarring when you schedule microneedling sessions at It’s a Secret Med Spa. 

The SkinPen® microneedling process also helps with hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone, acne scars, trauma scars and stretch marks.

We begin by topically numbing the patient’s treatment area to create a comfortable experience. Our skincare professionals attach a sterile tip containing 12 tiny micro-tips to the SkinPen®. Then, we apply sterile saline and select the appropriate treatment pen settings based on the patient’s unique needs. Next, in a single motion, the skincare professional gently presses the SkinPen® against the skin while simultaneously gliding in one direction until they cover the entire microneedling treatment area.
