Microneedling, a procedure sometimes referred to as collagen induction therapy, is a unique skin rejuvenation treatment that can reduce the signs of aging. Over time, it can be used as an acne scar treatment while improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. With the SkinPen micro-needling device used by our board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Melanie L. Adams of Columbia, Maryland, you can find a way to stimulate your body’s natural wound-healing process with this minimally invasive skin rejuvenation solution!
How does the SkinPen microneedling treatment work?
The SkinPen device provides controlled micro-injuries that trigger the skin’s natural release of cytokines and growth factors that can ultimately lead to the remodeling of collagen and elastin. The microscopic channels in the skin’s dermis help the skin look and feel healthier with regular treatments.

What can I expect during a SkinPen microneedling treatment?
Before Dr. Adams starts the microneedling treatment, she first applies a topical anesthetic on the treatment area to numb it and ensure patient comfort. The treatment is done quickly and easily with minimal discomfort, and patients can expect to see some redness and irritation in the treatment area for a day or two. The results are not immediate. Instead, they are seen over time as collagen and elastin stores are increased, and the skin begins the natural healing process.
