What if there were a non-invasive, outpatient procedure that could spark an astonishing 400% increase in the formation of new collagen and elastin, the building blocks of youthful, vibrant skin? Spa Black, located in San Antonio, is proud to offer micro-needling skin rejuvenation treatments.
What Is Micro-needling?
Micro-needling is a procedure that employs a small device to make tiny holes in the desired treatment area.
This is done to trigger the body’s natural healing mechanism; in response to micro-needling, new collagen (the amino-acid protein fiber primarily responsible for skin’s fullness and suppleness) and elastin (the compound primarily responsible for returning skin quickly and fully to its resting state after being stretched or contracted) are formed.
After age 20, collagen decreases at a rate of approximately 1% per year, and more quickly with significant exposure to damaging sunlight. Elastin concentrations also fall predictably and gradually over time.
What Issues and Areas Are Treated Most Effectively By Micro-needling?
Hyperpigmentation, fine lines, large pores, stretch marks, skin tightening, wrinkles, and acne scarring all respond well to micro-needling skin treatments. General skin lifting and rejuvenation can be expected.

Am I a Good Candidate for Micro-needling?
All skin types can benefit from micro-needling. Melanocytes (pigment cells) are left intact and undamaged during the procedure. Pigment change risk and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation risk are minimal.
Delicate, sensitive, or fragile skin areas that are not appropriate candidates for other modes of treatment tend to respond well to micro-needling. The skin around the eyes, on the back of the hands, and the skin of the neck fall into this category.
How Often Should I Get a Micro-needling Procedure Performed?
A period of four to six weeks should pass between micro-needling sessions; for initial general skin rejuvenation, a succession of three treatments, minding the four-to-six-week interval in between, is recommended.
Three to six total treatments are usually advisable for optimal scar diminishment. Of course, the specific number, duration, and course of treatments will vary based on each patient’s results and desired end goals.
