About Microneedling with PRP
Microneedling is a treatment that punctures small holes in the skin on your neck, face, or torso to stimulate skin restoration. As an additional bonus, your platelet-rich plasma (PRP) may be administered to the same region to help cells heal and permit the skin to begin growing new cells. These procedures paired together are usually known as the vampire facial and can decrease the appearance of wrinkles, dark spots, large pores, scars, fine lines, along with other skin conditions. The feel of your skin may be significantly enhanced to look smoother and more even in tone without damaging the epidermis. If you'd like to find out more about the microneedling with PRP procedure, contact Genecov Aesthetics & Wellness in Dallas, TX to schedule a private consultation with one of our providers
"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
A perfect candidate for microneedling with PRP is any individual seeking to alter the look or feel of the top layer of their skin. Uneven skin tone, dry skin, coarse texture, loose skin, age spots, acne, wrinkles and scarring are skin conditions which may benefit from microneedling with PRP therapy. This procedure may also be utilized to fight the effects of sun damage that might have caused skin to have a rough feel or hyperpigmentation.
Before the microneedling portion of your session, a member of our team will take a sample of your blood for your PRP collection. The vial of blood will then be placed in a certrifuge and spun down for the separation process for approximately 7 minutes, during which the platelets, growth factors, and stem cells can be turned into PRP. During this time, topical numbing cream will be placed on your skin to ensure optimal comfort during your treatment. For your microneedling therapy, Genecov Aesthetics & Wellness employs innovative technology using a device called a SkinPen to create small holes in your skin. The little needles used won't harm your skin but instead will help stimulate the creation of collagen. When the microneedling is done, the PRP serum will be placed on the epidermis to sink in. You will leave our office with a thin layer or PRP serum to seal off the open channels in your skin.
What to Expect
After your procedure, you could encounter some regular effects such as swelling, bruising, and redness. It is recommended that patients avoid the use of makeup, cleansing with exfoliating face washes, or swimming in pools for around three days following the session. Activities like this could expose the treatment area to bacteria and chemicals which may cause negative side effects. You also need to minimize exposure to the sun or use protective steps when planning to be outdoors. You will be provided with full aftercare instructions to ensure optimal results. Full results are usually noticed within the first month as the skin works to fix and heal itself.
