Treatment

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:

PHASE I

Inflammation: Skin piercing triggers the immune system for wound disinfection, removes debris, and increases blood flow to begin creating new tissue.

PHASE II

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.

PHASE III

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.

FAQs

WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING?

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.

This is an invasive process that is performed by a trained and qualified clinician. Surgical tiny needles pierce the skin, and temporary openings in the skin are done. 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. 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.

WHO IS A MICRONEEDLING CANDIDATE?

After micro-needling treatment, the skin may appear flushed and red, the same that occurs due to mild sunburn. Some patients may experience tightness, mild swelling, and pinpoint bleeding, which can last for 24-72 hours, but the healing time depends on the skin type, depth of the treatment, and skin condition. Slight dry skin and peeling are expected.

WHAT AREAS OF THE BODY CAN BE TREATED?

Micro-needling treatment is appropriate for all body parts, even under the eyes.

HOW LONG DOES MICRONEEDLING TAKE?

The treatment will take half an hour or less.

DOES MICRONEEDLING HURT?

Patients experience minimal discomfort in this treatment, and patients have to arrive half an hour early for topical numbing. Some clients feel pinching and slight vibration sensation on thinner sensitive areas. The short and minute discomfort is worth the results.

WHAT CAN EXPECT AFTER THE PROCEDURE?

Skin can get flushed and red immediately following the micro-needling treatment like a mild sunburn. Some patients may experience tightness, mild swelling, and pinpoint bleeding, which can stay for 24-72 hours. The healing time depends on treatment depth, skin condition, and skin types, and you can expect dry skin and slight peeling. 

WHEN WILL RESULTS BE SEEN AFTER MICRONEEDLING?

Patients can notice an instant glow within the few days of treatment. Most visible improvements can take 2-4 weeks, and the condition will improve continuously for 3-6 months.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?

Many clients will require 3 to 6 sessions with four weeks apart. Skin rejuvenation will take three weeks. Stretch marks and deeper scars will take about six weeks. Repair and softness occur with every session.

CAN I GET A MICRONEEDLING TREATMENT IF I’M PREGNANT?

Microneedling treatment is not recommended for pregnant women because the micro-needles create small injuries on the skin, which naturally begin the repair process. The production and healing process of new collagen needs nutrients and vitamins to be utilized that can deprive an unborn child of essential nutrients. Thus, if you are pregnant, this treatment is not suitable for you.

CAN I WEAR MAKE-UP IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING A PROCEDURE?

Most of the patients typically can resume their normal makeup routine and skincare regime within 2-3 days of post-micro-needling treatment. The treatment is simple. This may vary according to the body area and treatment type performed.
