If you have purchased every expensive over-the-counter beauty cream and exhausted your home treatment options but still haven't achieved the complexion you desire, maybe it is time to consider minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatments, such as microneedling. Our talented team, led by plastic surgeon Dr. Justin Martin, is pleased to offer SkinPen microneedling (collagen induction therapy) at his office in Dothan, AL. SkinPen microneedling uses many fine needles to effectively and safely make micro-injuries in the skin. The micro-injuries prompt the natural production of elastin and collagen, two nutrients that improve the health and appearance of your complexion. Microneedling can treat enlarged pores, moderate lines and wrinkles, scars, stretch marks, and acne scars. Make an appointment for a consultation at Martin Plastic Surgery to learn more about the benefits of SkinPen microneedling and how to personalize your procedure for your skin needs and goals.
"Dr. Martin and his staff go above and beyond for their patients. My mother had a recent surgery and he has made countless hospital visits, most after 5pm and on the weekend , in an effort to speed up her recovery. He answers all questions with patience and detail. His nurses are caring and knowledgeable. I honestly can’t say enough good about this practice."- L.D. / Facebook / Jan 05, 2020
"I am 64 years old and decided to get a lower face lift (neck and jowls) I went to one surgeon for consultation . He turned out to be very insulting and extremely rude. Well, I lost heart. It took me several months, researching and with the help of my daughter (she is an esthetician). I finally decided to try one more surgeon in the same area where I live . Dr Justin Martin of Martin Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in Dothan , AL. I was so apprehensive about another consultation, however, I really wanted to have the surgery. Well, I walked in and his staff, Monica, Sabrina and Kate, were so welcoming, I felt so comfortable. Had my consultation and Dr Martin was just as awesome and professional as his staff. By the time I left that consultation, I was ready for surgery. We had decided along with the Neck and jowls lift I would also get fat injected into my cheeks. Dr Martin informed me of what to expect and of the healing process. It is now four weeks out from the day of surgery. My stitches are out, I have had no problems and very thankful for Dr Martin's professional technical skills. And so very thankful to his beautiful staff. As a result of my surgery, I am looking hot! All kidding aside, I am very happy with the results. I am seeing a much fresher, healthier, happier me. I have a ways to go in the healing process, but I am thrilled."- I.B. / RealSelf / Nov 22, 2019

"Excellent, trustworthy, kind doctor. I had my breast implants (saline from 2000) removed April, 2019. Dr Martin listened to my concerns and was supportive of my decision to explant. He advised me he would attempt to remove the entire capsules and ultimately was able to do so. I healed well and look better than I could have hoped for back to my natural self. The concerning symptoms associated with "breast implant illness" have resolved. I thank God that he led me to this kind, nonjudgemental young doctor and staff that treated me so professionally. Thank you Dr. Martin and staff for your help!"- R.K. / Google / Sep 22, 2019
"I’m so glad I decided to make that first consultation with Dr Martin. It turned out to be the best cosmetic decision I’ve made yet. I have had procedures done by 2 other PS in Dothan so I have had experience with them all and Dr Martin is hands down the best choice of them all. From his friendly bedside manner to his amazing work he’s an amazing PS. He is confident in his work and what he can accomplish when other PS say it can’t be done. He was very patient with me with all ...of my questions and the 3 consultation appts I made before my surgery 😬I had more questions and I wanted to be 100% sure we were on the same page with my expectations and because of my past experiences with other PS. He listened to every concern I had and at 1 week PO those concerns are history. So far no issues in recovery and Dr Martin and his nurses have taken excellent care of me. His office is just a friendly environment and you can see that Dr Martin appreciates these 3 precious ladies he has by his side everyday. That says a lot about a person in my book. Anyway search no further cuz believe me I’ve done it for you. 😉Dr Martin is the right choice!! I plan to use him for other procedures I need from here on out 😍♥️💜♥️"- S.G. / Facebook / Aug 28, 2019
Ideal candidates for SkinPen microneedling treatments are experiencing light or mild complexion problems, like rough skin texture, fine to moderate lines or wrinkles, or low elasticity. Sometimes called collagen induction therapy, SkinPen microneedling may also reduce the look of scars, pores, and stretch marks. A period of time may pass before your results are fully realized as the elastin and collagen require time to have an impact on the complexion; however, you will have results that look natural and gain better overall skin health.
SkinPen microneedling is performed in one of the Martin Plastic Surgery treatment rooms in around an hour or less with local anesthesia or numbing cream if requested; however, most patients feel little to no pain or discomfort. The areas of the skin being addressed will be cleaned before the SkinPen handpiece is evenly passed over the treatment site.
What to Expect
You may have some redness and swelling for around one day afterward; however, this should subside quickly on its own. It can take around 1 – 2 months as the elastin and collagen supply increases until you notice significant changes in the appearance and health of your skin. You should schedule around 3 – 6 sessions performed every 4 – 6 weeks for optimal outcomes and lasting skin benefits.
Frequently Asked Questions
What exactly is microneedling?
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive procedure used to tighten and rejuvenate your skin. A natural fibrous protein, collagen helps your skin stay smooth, supple, and firm. Over time, your natural supply of collagen fades and your skin becomes thin and loses elasticity. Microneedling creates tiny wounds in the skin, promoting the production of collagen. After a short recovery period, your complexion appears brighter, firmer, and healthier.
How many treatments are recommended for optimal results?
Most patients get 3 – 6 SkinPen microneedling treatments to achieve optimal results. Although, the number of sessions your skin will require will vary based on your aesthetic goals. SkinPen microneedling may be safely performed every 4 – 6 weeks. When your skin goals are reached, we recommend scheduling touch-up sessions twice a year.
Is SkinPen microneedling safe for everyone?
Generally speaking, SkinPen microneedling is appropriate for all skin tones and types. Skin injuries created by microneedling are so minor that there are very few side effects afterward. Microneedling can be performed on most skin areas, including the face, neck, abdomen, arms, thighs, chest, and lower legs. Microneedling isn't recommended if you've used Accutane within the past year, plus if you have an active skin infection, open wound, or herpes simplex.
