Valley Dermatology


Over the years, microneedling has captured the attention of beauty enthusiasts and skincare professionals alike, offering a proven way to enhance skin texture, reduce fine lines and stimulate the skin’s natural collagen production. Microneedling at Valley Dermatology and Skin Cancer Center utilizes the FDA-cleared SkinPen device.

Designed to stimulate the body’s natural healing process, this non-invasive procedure targets specific skin concerns, unveiling a renewed and radiant version of yourself.

How Does Microneedling Work?

How Does Microneedling Work?

Microneedling works by creating controlled micro-injuries to the skin using tiny needle punctures. These miniscule injuries stimulate the body’s natural healing response, triggering the production of collagen and elastin. Collagen is a protein responsible for the skin’s firmness, while elastin enhances its plumpness and elasticity.

As the skin heals from these micro-injuries, the new collagen and elastin fibers improve the skin’s overall texture and appearance. Fine lines and wrinkles are diminished, and the skin becomes firmer and more supple. Additionally, microneedling can help address concerns such as uneven skin tone, acne scars, and stretch marks, contributing to a rejuvenated and refreshed complexion.

The process is minimally invasive, making it a popular choice for those seeking a non-surgical and effective solution to enhance their skin’s quality.

What Are The Benefits?

Microneedling is a popular aesthetic treatment due to it  many transformative benefits:

Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Microneedling stimulates the skin’s natural collagen and elastin production, effectively reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. As the skin heals from the controlled micro-injuries, it regains its firmness and plumpness, contributing to a more youthful complexion.

Even Skin Tone

Addressing hyperpigmentation concerns, microneedling promotes a more uniform skin tone. The controlled wounds trigger the skin to produce new, evenly pigmented cells, diminishing the appearance of age spots and creating a radiant and balanced complexion.

Scarring Improvement

Microneedling is a game-changer for those dealing with acne scars or other types of scarring. The procedure stimulates the regeneration of healthy skin tissue, gradually minimizing the visible traces of scars for smoother and clearer skin.

Stretch Mark Reduction

For individuals looking to reduce the appearance of stretch marks, microneedling is a valuable solution. By encouraging collagen and elastin production, the procedure helps improve the elasticity of the skin, leading to a reduction in the visibility of stretch marks.

Enhanced Skin Texture

One of the key benefits of microneedling is its ability to improve overall skin texture. By encouraging the formation of new collagen and elastin fibers, the skin becomes smoother, softer, and more refined, contributing to a healthier and more youthful look.
