What is Microneedling?
When over-the-counter skin treatments aren't effective, but you don't want surgery, consider nonsurgical procedures for skin rejuvenation, such as microneedling. Dr. David Hartman is happy to perform microneedling at his office in Dover, OH using the state-of-the-art SkinPen® device. Microneedling uses multiple fine needles to safely and effectively create micro-injuries in the skin. These micro-injuries trigger the body's natural production of collagen and elastin, two nutrients that contribute to the overall health and appearance of your skin. Easily combined with other treatments, including vitamin serums or PRP (platelet-rich plasma), microneedling may help minimize pores, stretch marks, and scars. Schedule a consultation at Fine Arts Skin & Laser Aesthetic Plastic Surgery to hear more about the results of microneedling and ways to personalize your procedure for your skin concerns and goals.

"I am a 36 year old mom of 4 boys before meeting with Dr. Hartman my body, self confidence, and mental health were destroyed and I was dependent on 3 medications for depression/anxiety. I am currently on ZERO!! Let me tell you, Dr Hartman and staff at Fine Arts Skin and Laser are hands down simply Amazing! I went in for my consult very skeptical, scared, and ashamed of my body, but I came out with my self confidence boosted, a load of knowledge, and ended up scheduling my surgery a week later. I had my procedure at the end of that month--high def lipo in multiple areas (inner thighs, abdomen, love handles, bra roll, & under chin) living fat transfer, tummy tuck, and laser hair removal all on surgery day. Since surgery I have had lymphatic drainage massages, laser scar removal, Jeuveau, lip filler, Opus Plasma laser, and henna brows just to name a few and I couldn't be happier with my results (physical and mental). Dr H. and staff were awesome and answered all of my questions- good, bad, and ugly and made me feel comfortable, they were very upfront with me and told me all of the risks (every surgery has risks). They informed me that my body may reject some of the fat transfer, and that my stomach may end up with "cones" on my sides from the tummy tuck healing. I love how honest they were, and didn't sugar coat anything. Dr H and staff are real, upfront, honest and my kind of people. From the bottom of my heart thank you guys, thank you for giving me my confidence and my life back."- B.B. / Google / Nov 03, 2022
"Simply amazing, I highly recommend for your skin care needs! Fine Arts was recommended by a friend, I was reluctant to make the drive but purchased a package of their express facials and have been very pleased. I have been working with esthetician Nikki, she does an amazing job! The entire staff is professional, friendly, and very helpful! Fine Arts is worth the drive!"- B.D. / Google / Oct 20, 2022
Is Microneedling Right For Me?
You may benefit from microneedling treatments if you have slight to mild skin problems, such as a decrease in firmness or an uneven texture. Microneedling treatments may also minimize the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and pores. You should be willing to wait before seeing the results of your microneedling treatment because the elastin and collagen require some time to have an effect on the complexion, but you will see results that look natural and gain healthier, stronger skin.
How is Microneedling Performed?
Collagen induction therapy with microneedling is performed in one of our private treatment rooms in about 30 – 60 minutes using a numbing cream or local anesthesia if desired; however, patients generally feel mild or no pain and discomfort. The skin being addressed will be cleaned before the SkinPen handpiece is evenly passed over. Once the microneedling is complete, a treatment, such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or a serum with a vitamin infusion, can be applied so the nutrients can penetrate deeper into the skin. A moisturizer selected for your skin type will be massaged in along with sunscreen since your skin will be sensitive after the procedure.
What Results Can I Expect from Microneedling?
After your treatment, you can have some swelling and redness for about a day; however, this should resolve naturally. It may take about 1 – 2 months as the elastin and collagen supply increases until you notice significant changes in the health and appearance of your treated skin. You should schedule about 4 – 6 follow-up treatments performed every 4 – 6 weeks for optimal outcomes and long-lasting skin health.
