For some reason, watching Kim Kardashian undergo a “vampire facial” on Kourtney and Kim Take Miami sent people running to their dermatologists requesting the next big thing in skincare. Since then, many places in Dallas have started offering the same microneedling spa service seen on the show, but blood isn’t always the main ingredient.
According to Joni Thomas, spa manager and clinical aesthetician at North Dallas Dermatology, the microneedling technique uses a handheld tool to make controlled micro-injuries to the skin that aid in the production of collagen and elastin.
“The micro channels allow topical serums to absorb more effectively and enhance the effects in deeper layers of skin,” Thomas says. “We offer infusions of hyaluronic acid, growth factor and platelet-rich plasma.”
