"We travel all the way from west of Fort Worth to go to the Wellness Institute of Dallas. Our whole family has received treatment there for several personal complaints and we always consider them because we keep getting fantastic results. We get regular chiropractic care and we are also getting some neurological therapy, We appreciate Dr. Nutt and all the staff at their facility. They treat us for overall health, and treat us individually and appropriately! I have recommended this practice to friends and coworkers, and I am doing the same for you too. You will probably find, as we do that you will always come away with just the treatment you need and a little good health practical knowledge with every visit."- D.H. / Google / Apr 19, 2020
"I’ve seen chiropractors off and on for years but Dr. Ednie has been the most successful at keeping me running. I’m on my feet all day, workout 6-7 days a week and participate in both running races and obstacle course races. If I didn’t come to the Wellness Center I wouldn’t be able to train at the level I do and would probably have had an injury or two at some point. Dr. Ednie doesn’t just do a generic adjustment and call it a day, but checks with how I’m feeling, what’s happening with my training and asks if there’s anything I think I need worked on."- L.J. / Google / Aug 14, 2021

OUR MICRONEEDLING TECHNIQUE
Using the SkinPen®, microneedling is an advanced technique that can be performed on your face, neck, or chest area. This treatment is often used to address concerns, like:
- Sun spots
- Large pores
- Skin elasticity
Once our team has learned about the issues you'd like to improve, we will create a treatment plan that is personalized to your needs.
How much does microneedling cost?
In your consultation, a member of our team will analyze your skin and then develop your custom plan. From there, they will be able to talk about your treatment costs and the procedure. The Wellness Institute of Dallas often has specials on skin treatment packages, so ask about current deals during your appointment.
What exactly is microneedling?
Collagen induction therapy or microneedling is a nonsurgical treatment to rejuvenate your skin. A natural fibrous protein, collagen helps keep your skin supple, smooth, and firm. Eventually, your supply of collagen is reduced, and your skin becomes thin and less elastic. Microneedling causes small skin wounds. These micro-injuries force your skin to generate new skin cell growth and increase collagen production. Once healed, your complexion is firmer, brighter, and healthier.
Can I combine other treatments with microneedling?
During the process of microneedling, channels are made in your skin that make it easier for treatments to reach the lower layers. This is why microneedling is often performed with other skin treatments, like vitamin-rich serums or platelet-rich plasma (PRP). Microneedling with PRP has become known as the Vampire Facial®. During your initial consultation, a member of our team can talk about what treatments may be performed along with microneedling and which would most benefit your skin.
How many treatments are recommended for optimal results?
Most patients receive 3 – 6 sessions to achieve their best results. However, the number of sessions you need will vary based on your goals and the condition of your skin. Microneedling may be done every 4 – 6 weeks. During your initial consultation, a member of our team will be able to estimate the number of sessions you might want after assessing your skin and listening to your goals. When your skin goals are reached, we typically recommend scheduling maintenance sessions every six months.
Is microneedling safe for everyone?
On the whole, microneedling is safe for all skin types and tones. Skin injuries created by microneedling are so minor there are very few side effects after the treatment. Microneedling can be performed on most areas of skin, including the arms, face, neck, chest, and legs. Microneedling is not recommended if you have used Accutane recently, as well as if you have herpes simplex, an open wound, or an active skin infection. In addition, you may not be a candidate for microneedling if you are nursing, pregnant, or getting radiation therapy.
