What is Microneedling? How Does Microneedling Work?
SkinPen® microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, can be used to treat a variety of skin concerns. Overtime, our skin will naturally begin to age and battle skin conditions such as fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, large pores, un-even skin texture and more. The SkinPen® microneedling procedure is a great treatment that addresses these skin concerns. During the procedure, the SkinPen® will create thousand of controlled, micro-injuries to the skin which stimulate the body’s natural healing process. This process will promote effective remodeling of collagen and elastin, two essential skin proteins responsible for the structure of the skin. This will result in smoother, younger looking skin. SkinPen® microneedling treatments are minimally invasive and require minimal downtime. At Dermatology Solutions, our advanced technology allows us to achieve maximum versatility, making SkinPen® microneedling a safe and effective treatment for even the most delicate areas of the body, such as around your eyes and lips.

How to Maintain Your Microneedling Results
After receiving your microneedling treatment, there are a few steps you can follow the ensure your results last as long as possible!
Limit Sun Exposure:
After your treatment, your skin will be more sensitive to sunlight for the first couple of weeks. To allow your skin time to heal properly it is recommended to avoid sun exposure as much as possible. Be sure to use sunscreen as directed by your microneedling treatment specialist – this may be different from your normal daily application.
Avoid Harsh Chemicals:
Avoiding products that include strong exfoliates, scented products, retinols, and glycolic acid or alpha hydroxy acids. Talk to your specialist about your daily skin care routine to learn which products you should avoid during the time your skin is healing.
Refrain From Touching Your Face:
