Now you don’t have to worry about dull-looking skin with different scars and marks because Glow Medspa is now offering Colleyville microneedling treatments that are minimally invasive and give healthy, smooth skin with reduced signs of aging. The procedure stimulates the natural repairability of skin so you can see dramatically improved appearance of acne scars, fine lines, skin texture, stretch marks with just a single treatment. Microneedling utilizes a unique system, so your body produces new collagen and elasticity that effectively creates smoother skin, diminishing scarring, fine lines, and stretch marks.
Our Colleyville microneedling treatment procedure involves creating micro-sized, temporary openings in the skin with the help of a disposable needle cartridge. The natural, painless process stimulates the growth of new skin without the interference of chemicals and thermal energy. The body reacts naturally to the treatment and produces new cells as well as extracellular materials that include elastin and vital collagen that are necessary for smooth and youthful skin appearance.
The procedure involves three phases. During the treatment procedure, a microscopic needle is pierced into the dermal tissue to activate the body’s immune system. Inside the body, macrophages and neutrophils cells are sent to increase the blood supply, clear debris, and disinfect the area. Your new skin will begin to create. After this treatment, you may experience minimum side effects like mild sunburn-like tenderness, redness, and swelling. Most of the side effects can be concealed with makeup, and patients can join regular activities immediately. Any evidence of side effects will vanish within a few days.
During the second phase, skin cells will continue to grow and multiply in the treated areas. The new skin has strong collagen and elastin that gives the youthful, fresh appearance and reduces the appearance of fine lines, scars, as well as stretch marks. This is often an important part of our Colleyville wrinkle and scar treatments.
The final phase involves skin contraction, as your body will heal itself. Smoother, tighter skin will be placed on old skin.
Our Colleyville microneedling treatments can be customized according to your needs, including depth adjustment of needles based on a person’s skin levels or thickness of scar tissue.

Microneedling is your best friend when it comes to minimizing the appearance of acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles on the face and improving the overall tone and texture of your skin.
A micro-needling device causes micro-injuries in a controlled manner that stimulates the natural wound healing process of the body. These micro-injuries enhance the release of cytokines and growth factors that lead to an increase of elastin and collagen.
Three phases are involved in the wound repair process:
Inflammation: Skin piercing triggers the immune system for wound disinfection, removes debris, and increases blood flow to begin creating new tissue.
Proliferation: New granulation cells re-built the wound as well as a temporary type iii collagen and elastin that are the part of the extracellular matrix. Moreover, new blood vessels develop.
Remodeling: The wound replaces with new blood vessels and dermal tissues. The newly formed tissue has a type III collagen that is replaced with type I stronger collagen, which can contract to create a shrink wrap or tightening effect on the skin.
