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.

"Best Plastic Surgeon in the Wiregrass!! - I recently had a breast reduction done a couple months ago.

All of my questions were answered, I never waited long at any of my appts, they handled the whole insurance side of things. Dr martin has a very keen eye on how the body/skin works. I had enormous breast that hung down and now i have beautiful breasts. I honestly feel like he worked some type of magic on me. I had a very quick recovery time.

"Breast Augmentation Review (53 Year Old) - As a 53 year old, I was a little hesitant to undergo a breast augmentation, however, I am so thankful and glad that I did.

I only wish I had of done this years ago."- J. / RealSelf / Jul 27, 2020
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.
