About Acne Scar Treatment
Acne scars develop as a result of damage to the pores from the buildup of dead skin cells, oils, and bacteria. This damage can create deep, permanent lesions due to the skin’s inability to clear itself. Two different types of scars can form due to acne. The first is hypertrophic, or keloid scars, which form as a result of increased collagen production related to the body’s natural healing process. In response to a wound, the body ramps up production of collagen to heal the injury and, as a result, this type of scar appears as raised tissue. The other type of acne scarring is depressed or atrophic as a result of a loss of tissue. Depressed scars take many different shapes such as a deep V-shape (known as “icepick”) or a deep rectangular shape (“boxcar”). The SkinPen is a revolutionary tool used to soften the appearance of acne scarring. Our highly-trained and certified SkinPen practitoners at Genecov Aesthetics & Wellness are pleased to provide our clients in the Dallas, TX area with this effective method for naturally renewing the texture and appearance of their skin.
"I had pharyngeal flap surgery made by Dr. Genecov. I'm 32 years old and had been having hypernasal speech for the whole life - I was born with a cleft palate and had not the best surgery when I was a child. Even though it wasn't an easy task to fix it on an adult, Dr. Genecov did a great job, I already sound and feel better. His office staff is nice and professional, he treats his patients with care and kindness. I had to go to Dallas TX to have all of this done, but it did pay off.Highly recom"- V. / Healthgrades / Oct 26, 2018

"We have seen Dr Genecov probably for 8-9 years now, since we moved to Texas. You can truly see how much he cares about his patients, not once have I felt rushed or like he didn’t want to listen to my concerns. Dr Genecov and his crew are the best of THE BEST!"- W.S. / Facebook / Jul 14, 2020
"I LOVE DR. BARCELO! HE IS THE ABSOLUTE BEST! He is very knowledgeable and listens to your concerns/what you are trying to achieve with your visit. He is very realistic and conservative when it comes to injectables, and I have never been unhappy with any of my results! He has been doing my botox for years, and I never have a wrinkle afterwards. He also just did my lips for the first time, I was very nervous as we have all seen women who definitely went overboard. He achieved exactly what I was hoping for and I could not be happier! It is not even noticeable to those who don't know me, but it has made a huge difference for me! I can finally wear lipstick and it not be all over my face, lol. I would definitely recommend him to anyone considering anything in his scope of practice! I live in Austin, and go see him when I come back to Dallas to see my family. I have also never had any difficulty getting an appointment, even the day of sometimes! HE IS THE BEST! Go see him!"- A.S. / Yelp / Mar 02, 2020

What To Expect
Prior to your SkinPen acne scar treatment, a topical gel will be applied to not only cleanse the skin but to help the SkinPen glide smoothly across the skin's surface. The next step is to select the appropriate pen setting and number of needle passes necessary to address your skin’s specific needs. As the tip of the SkinPen is applied to the skin’s surface, thousands of microscopic holes are created every second. This process stimulates your skin’s production of collagen and elastin as part of the body’s natural healing process. As a result, new collagen and elastin yield softer, firmer skin and a reduction in the appearance of acne scars. The procedure takes an average of 15 – 30 minutes, depending on the size and area being treated.
Your skin will likely appear bright red immediately following treatment and there are at home post care instructions that you will be provided. For any questions regarding aftercare, please call our office and speak with one of our knowledgeable professionals. The total healing time your skin will require depends on the SkinPen setting used, as well as the number of overlapping passes that were performed. On average, patients will experience redness for 2 – 4 days. However, the optimal result is an improvement in the skin’s texture and the softening of acne scarring.
