When home skin treatments are not effective, but you are not ready for surgery, try nonsurgical procedures for skin rejuvenation, like microneedling. Renew Beauty Med Spa & Wellness Center is pleased to offer microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) using Eclipse MicroPen®, SkinPen®, and Aquagold®, technology at our offices in Dallas or Frisco, TX. The AquaGold Fine Touch Rejuvenating Treatment is an injectable device that uses 24 karat gold needles, finer than a single hair follicle, to evenly distribute facial fillers and wrinkle relaxers across the entire face into the skin’s deep layers.
Microneedling uses multiple fine-gauge needles to safely and effectively create micro-injuries in the needed areas of the skin. The micro-injuries trigger the body's natural production of collagen and elastin, two nutrients that increase the overall health and appearance of your skin. Easily combined with other treatments, like serums or PRP (platelet-rich plasma), microneedling can help reduce stretch marks, scars, and pores. Schedule a consultation at Renew Beauty Med Spa & Wellness Center to discover more about the benefits of microneedling and ways to customize the treatment for your skin concerns and goals.

You may benefit from microneedling if you have slight to moderate skin issues, like a decrease in firmness or an uneven texture. Microneedling treatments can also improve the appearance of stretch marks, scars, and pores. You need to be willing to wait a while before seeing benefits from your microneedling treatment since the collagen and elastin will need a month or longer to have an effect on the skin, but you will see natural-looking results and gain healthier, stronger skin.
Collagen induction therapy with microneedling is done in one of our facility treatment rooms in about 30 – 60 minutes with numbing cream or a local anesthesia if desired, but patients typically experience mild or no discomfort. The skin being treated will be cleansed before the microneedling handpiece is passed evenly over. After the microneedling is done, a topical treatment, like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or a vitamin-infused serum, can be applied for deeper penetration of the nutrients into the skin. A moisturizer will be massaged in along with sun protection since your skin will be sensitive after the treatment.
What to Expect
Following the microneedling procedure, you might develop light swelling and redness for about a day, but this should resolve on its own. It may take about 1 – 2 months as the collagen and elastin levels increase before you see visible improvements in the health and appearance of your treated skin. You should plan to get about 4 – 6 maintenance treatments every 4 – 6 weeks for the best results and long-term skin health.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does microneedling cost?
Costs for microneedling will vary, depending on what is in your treatment plan. During your consultation, a member of our aesthetic team will evaluate your skin and then develop your personalized plan. Once this is complete, they will review your costs and the procedure process. Renew Beauty Med Spa & Wellness Center often offers specials on treatment packages so ask about current deals during your consultation.
What exactly is microneedling?
Collagen induction therapy or microneedling is a nonsurgical treatment to improve the health of your skin. Collagen is a fibrous protein that helps keep your skin supple, smooth, and tight. As you get older, your stores of collagen are depleted and your skin becomes thin and less elastic. Microneedling causes small wounds in your skin. These micro-injuries force your skin to increase its collagen production and generate new skin cell growth. Once healed, your skin is healthier, firmer, and brighter.
Can I combine other treatments with microneedling?
During the microneedling process, channels are created in your skin that make it easier for treatments to penetrate the deeper layers. This is why microneedling is commonly combined with other treatments, like vitamin-rich serums or platelet-rich plasma (PRP). Microneedling with PRP is more commonly known as the vampire facial. During your consultation, we can talk about what treatments may be performed along with microneedling and which can help your skin's health.
How many treatments are recommended for optimal results?
Usually, patients need 3 – 6 sessions to see their best results. However, the number of treatments you need will depend on your goals and the condition of your skin. Microneedling can be performed every 4 – 6 weeks as needed. During your consultation, we will estimate how many treatments you will need based on your skin and goals. Once you have reached your goal, we recommend receiving maintenance treatments two times a year.
Is microneedling safe for everyone?
On the whole, microneedling is safe for all skin types and tones. Since the skin injuries created are so small, there are usually no side effects after the treatment. Microneedling can be applied to most areas of skin, including the arms, face, neck, chest, thighs, and calves. Microneedling is not recommended if you have been on Accutane in the last few months, as well as if you have herpes simplex, an open wound, or active skin infection. In addition, you may not be a candidate for microneedling if you are pregnant, nursing, or undergoing radiation treatments.
