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 Group offers microneedling with SkinPen 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.
"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
The microneedling procedure works by stimulating the natural elastin and collagen composition in the body with SkinPen, which in turn, improves the overall smoothness and appearance of the skin. Therefore, you may be an ideal candidate for microneedling if you desire a nonsurgical alternative to rejuvenating the youthful appearance of your 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 Group.
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 SkinPen is placed against the skin while being moved across the treatment area in one direction. This motion allows the 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 by the SkinPen 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 six months. While one treatment may be all it takes to heal a minor area of concern, 2 – 3 treatments performed at 6 – 8-week intervals are 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. In addition, you will be provided with aftercare instructions as this treatment does have a 24 hour downtime. For any questions or concerns, please call our office and speak with one of our knowledgeable professionals!
