Microneedling With SkinPen™

Print This Page

Microneedling is a simple treatment that improves the skin's texture and appearance by using the body's natural healing process to produce new collagen and elastin. The SkinPen is an innovative microneedling tool we use at the Dallas Center for Dermatology and Aesthetics. It creates precise, microscopic channels at various depths to trigger the skin's natural rejuvenation. Patients concerned about uneven skin texture and mild to moderate acne scars choose our Dallas practice to get excellent microneedling results with SkinPen.

Getting Great Results

There are numerous treatments available that can improve the texture and tone of your skin. They range from chemical peels and laser skin resurfacing to microdermabrasion and IPL Photofacial. Dr. Stetler and Dr. Polder customize treatments based on a thorough assessment of your skin, so that you get the desired results. That customization includes combining microneedling with other treatments, incluiding:


The SkinPen microneedling treatment typically causes mild swelling and redness in the first couple of days following the procedure. It's similar to a mild sunburn, and any discomfort can be alleviated with over-the-counter pain relief medication. Most of the redness and swelling, along with bruising if it occurs, is gone by the third day after your treatment.
