Some skin types, particularly those with darker pigmentation, do not respond well to laser treatments. At The K Spa, your skin specialist or Dr. Stong, our plastic surgeon and medical director, will discuss the best options for your skin type and the results you are looking for. Many times, micro needling will be recommended as a top choice to include in your personalized treatment plan. Micro needling treatments can be used to accomplish many of the same results accomplished by laser skin treatments or deep chemical peels. The following is a list of micro needling treatments available at The K Spa:
Micro needling is also referred to as skin needling or Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT). It involves very light perforation of the skin surface with microscopic surgical needles. There are many different types of devices that have been utilized over the years for micro needling, including rollers and pens. The medical grade device we use at The K Spa for micro needling provides greater precision and less abrasion than other devices, which have been known to tear the skin. We also combine our micro needling treatments with application of stem cell cytokines both during and following your micro needling treatment. The cytokines help promote healing and healthy regeneration of your skin.
When it comes to professional, medical-grade skin treatments, select The K Spa to gain the confidence that comes from working with a highly-regarded, dual board certified plastic surgeon. Dr. Stong gives direction and oversight for all the cosmetic services offered through The K Spa and in conjunction with Kalos, his distinctive plastic surgery practice in Atlanta, Georgia.

Collagen is a naturally occurring protein throughout your body. It helps build the structure that keeps your skin looking full, flexible and youthful. As you age, your skin begins to lose collagen, leaving your skin thinner. Without the full layer of collagen under your skin, fine lines and wrinkles form. To restore the youthful fullness of your skin in a very natural way, collagen growth can be stimulated through the use of micro needling treatments.
Balding and thinning hair has been an issue that men and women have always struggled with. It can be frustrating to have your crown of glory dissipate. It can also affect your appearance in a way that makes you look older than you actually are. The effects of hair loss and balding go beyond personal cosmetic preferences. When you’re not satisfied with your appearance, it affects your confidence level in social settings. It can also affect the perception others have of you. Social biases related to balding can negatively affect your career opportunities or competitive advantages in some situations. For all these reasons and more, The K Spa offers scalp hair growth treatments that are amazingly effective in stimulating the natural growth of your own hair.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a substance produced by your own body, the most natural component that can be used in skin treatments. It is part of the healing properties in your blood stream. For this treatment, a small sample of your blood is used to collect your own PRP by separating those super healing cells from your blood to be used in rejuvenating your skin. At The K Spa, we are proud to offer this innovate skincare treatment in combination with micro needling to provide you one of the most advanced skin treatments available. PRP micro needling treatments are can be beneficial for the smoothing of facial scarring, wrinkles and fine lines, as well as for overall skin rejuvenation.
Scars on your skin surface are not easy to hide, especially on your face. Even though many skin treatments are less effective when it comes to smoothing and rejuvenating scar tissue, there are some which have shown very positive results. Micro needling treatment over scars is one of those treatments. It can be used for acne scarring and other types of facial scars.
Acne scars can be treated in many different ways and often include a combination of treatments to provide the very best results possible. Acne scar micro needling treatment is often recommended for patients with darker skin pigment that would not meet the criteria for other acne scar treatments, such as laser or chemical peels.
With a growing range of ethnicity in Georgia’s culture, skin treatments for darker skin pigmentation are an essential part of our standard offerings. Among those offerings, micro needling treatment for ethnic skin types is one that provides some unique advantages. Since laser treatments and chemical peels are generally not recommended for darker skin tones, micro needling treatments can be a safe and effective alternative for our ethnic population for a variety of skin issues.
There are a number of different skin treatments which can be used to reduce the brown spots or age spots on your skin. Lasers and chemical peels are two of the treatments we offer at The K Spa, but they are not the best choice for every skin type. For patients who have a darker overall skin tone, we usually recommend brown spot reduction treatment through micro needling.
