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.
"Wonderful people to work with. I had a tummy tuck about a month ago my results are more than I could have ever hoped for. Any thing I chose to have done in the future I will go to Fine Arts for."- T.M. / Google / Mar 15, 2023
"I just want to take a moment to express my gratitude for the life-changing treatment I received from all of the wonderful people at this clinic. I had a mommy makeover in August '22 with a tummy tuck, 360 liposuction of my torso and arms, and fat transfer to my breasts. I've NEVER felt better. Dr. Hartman is very skilled, and I thank him every day when I look in the mirror! The procedure was super tolerable and even fun at times. The only super uncomfortable part for me was during the skin removal from my abdomen. But all the staff in the room, especially Allana, made me feel safe and taken care of during those rougher moments, and I will never forget that. My recovery has been great and I appreciate the aftercare this clinic provides immensely! Julie is fantastic. I feel like she is an old friend, and I trust her expertise completely. I don't have experience with any other plastic surgery office, but I feel like the ongoing treatment I've recieved post-operatively like laser on my scar, lymphatic massage, and more (at no additional charge) is what makes this place unique and the best! I'm so happy I found this place and these people when I did. I would do this over and over again! I'm achieving my health and fitness goals and, most importantly, I'm healing my mindset and self image. Surgery is never the whole answer to body image issues so many people face, but there is no shame in using it as one tool to empower yourself to grow and heal and evolve into a better version of you. I feel so privileged to have been able to experience this. 💜"- R.J. / Google / Mar 13, 2023

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.
