It is no secret that aging brings a lot of change to one’s appearance. While those changes may not be welcome by a majority of people, microneedling is a simple and easy procedure that can make the aging process more acceptable. With microneedling, it is possible to diminish years of aging wrinkles and fine lines, while improving the overall texture and appearance of your skin. If you are over the age of 30, you no longer have to accept the physical changes to your appearance that come with growing older. Genecov Plastic Surgery offers microneedling with the Eclipse MicroPen for those men and women who don’t want to accept looking older than they actually are. Call our Dallas, TX office today to schedule a complimentary consultation with one of our highly-trained medical professionals.

The microneedling procedure works by stimulating the natural elastin and collagen composition in the body with the Eclipse MicroPen, which, in turn, improves the overall smoothness and appearance of the skin. Therefore, you may be an ideal candidate for microneedling if they desire a nonsurgical alternative to rejuvenating the youthful appearance of their skin. Although microneedling is safe and effective for men and women of varying ages, it may not be right for everyone, which is why we offer complimentary consultations to all our patients at Genecov Plastic Surgery.
What To Expect
A topical hydrating gel will first be applied to the skin to help relieve any pain or discomfort patients might experience during the procedure. After the gel has been applied, the MicroPen is placed against the skin while being moved across the treatment area in one direction. This motion allows the 12 sterile needle tips to gently break the skin, stimulating the skin to increase collagen production as a result of microscopic injury. The sensation of the needles has been described as the feeling of sandpaper rubbing against the skin. However, the speed of the action, along with the analgesic gel that is applied during pre-treatment, helps to prevent most discomfort that may be felt as part of the process.
Following the microneedling procedure, the skin may appear red in the treatment area. This is a minor, temporary side effect that should subside within 24 hours. Those patients who undergo a more intensive treatment that requires overlapping passes of the Eclipse MicroPen may experience this redness for 2 – 4 days after treatment. However, improvement may be seen immediately, but as the body’s natural healing process increases the skin’s collagen production, visible improvements in the skin’s tone and volume will be seen for up to 6 months. While 1 treatment may be all it takes to heal a minor area of concern, 2 – 3 treatments performed at 6 – 8 week intervals is recommended for optimal results. Those patients who are looking to treat deep wrinkles and creases, acne scars, or areas of extreme past sun damage may require up to 6 – 8 separate treatments in order to see maximum benefits and transformation.
