Our microneedling is a minimally invasive skin resurfacing treatment aimed at treating signs of aging and improving the appearance of your face. This process is also often referred to as collagen induction therapy.
Over time, our bodies lose the ability to create collagen and elastin, the two components that help keep our skin firm, smooth, and supple. This is the reason why we offer our microneedling services in Allen, TX. In the microneedling process, the micro-injuries created by microneedling pen to help activate and release growth factors that lead to the rebuilding of collagen and elastin in the skin.
Our collagen induction therapy is great for skin rejuvenation including those with issues such as:
- Fine lines

How often should I get this treatment?
Clients will see significant results in one session. You do not have to come back for another needling the next month to maintain your results, only if they want to build on to your results. However we recommend 3-6 sessions depending on your age and the severity of skin condition you are wanting to treat.
You should allow one month of recovery time in between each Microneedling session. After one month of healing, additional treatments may be suggested per each client’s needs presented as necessary.
Not all Micro-Needling treatments are the same The solution that is used and the technique a very important in determining the number of treatments as well as how well you stick to your home care.
Why BOHO Microneedling Solution is the Best
At BOHO Alternative Med Spa our Microneedling Solution contains pro-healing anti-inflammatory growth factors and cytokines derived from laboratory culture of human bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells, the specialized cells that science has determined function as “command and control” of healing in all injured tissues.
Hyaluronic acid provides lubrication and is a powerful humectant that promotes rapid ultra hydration and volume enhancement within the upper layers of the skin.
Our microneedling solution contains no cells or cell remnants (they are removed during ultrafiltration, the final step in the laboratory culture process).
- Pristine Bone Marrow Mesenchymal Growth Factor derived cytokines is a superior cell source for culture compared to ﬁbroblast cells and adipose growth factors. It maintains a stronger anti-inﬂammatory portfolio of cytokines. Our growth factors are derived from the bone marrow of young, healthy, pre-screened adult donors. The cells are cultured in a laboratory, within a controlled environment that fosters production of the bio-signals that will engage in skin repair and rejuvenation.
- Formulated with a Hyaluronic Acid base and no additional harmful ingredients seen in other microneedling solutions.
- Paraben-free, FD&C dye-free, Sulfate-free
After Treatment Expecations
There is little downtime associated with Microneedling but most feel some tenderness afterwards. This sensation may feel like a windburn or sunburn because of the micro trauma caused to the dermal layer. Every client is different, but this sensation typically lasts about 1-2 days and may be accompanied by redness and dryness, but there is no reason for concern.
It is common to see additional redness on thin areas like the neck. The client should avoid direct sun exposure for at least 48 hours and wear SPF daily.
We highly suggest waiting to apply makeup until the next day. Each client should be advised to clean makeup brushes and products prior to makeup application with 90% isopropyl alcohol that can be purchased at any grocery or drug store and remember that just like any area of the body where a healing response has been triggered, keeping the area super clean is crucial to healing.

Clients are not required to use homecare, however, we strongly recommend it! Below is in order of most beneficial.

Rollers vs Pen - Why BOHO uses Microneedling Pens
At BOHO we use a microneedling pen for your needling procedures.
Our Pen is a powered stamping device using batteries or electrical source. The speed and depth of needle can be easily changed. We use single-use sterile tips to prevent cross contamination. The pen uses a strait up and down motion for a clean and precise wound, less discomfort, and is easier to treat smaller areas.
Rollers by comparison come in a certain size that cannot be altered. If you want and shorter or longer needle depth you have to use a different roller that comes in that specification. It can tear the skin and does not create as precise of a wound. There is no proper way to clean a roller, which can lead to infections.
Additionally, for people who wish to use an at home version, it’s really hard and painful for them to go deep enough for them to stimulate collagen.
BOHO Microneedling Training
At BOHO we believe education is power. Our Estheticians are constantly going to advanced training to learn the newest education and treatment techniques. All of our Estheticians are highly trained in microneedling.
We have been trained by Eclipse, Procell, and Dr. Lance Setterfeild, the Doctor who is known as the grandfather of microneedling and helped make micro-needling popular in the U.S.
Please Note: Do not look up microneedling on youtube!!! You will be terrified. Not every person is properly trained on microneedling.
The red light is absorbed by the mitochondria and stimulates intracellular energy transfer (ATP) production for enhanced cell vitality and permeability, increased production of new collagen and increased turnover of collagen and elastin fibers. LED also reduces inflammation that can cause scar collagen.
Gives the skin a good deep clean before needling. Think of it as a fresh pallet.
Plus you are getting everything out before you close everything up (shrinking pore size)
This nutritional IV gives your body the building blocks it needs to make collagen.
