Microneedling | Effective Resurfacing for Any Skin Type

Microneedling helps to minimize pores, stretch marks and scarring (such as keloid and surgical and acne scars). This treatment is generally painless and most patients see results within just 6 to 8 days after treatment.

Dermapen 3MD Advanced Microneedling

Dermapen 3MD is run along the skin’s surface to increase the production of normal woven collagen (similar to fractional laser treatments) but without the side effects and downtime. By creating microinjuries in the skin, Dermapen treatments stimulate the natural healing process which results in new, healthy skin cells and improved elasticity.

Is This Treatment Painful?

3MD treatments are relatively painless. Deeper treatments may require topical anesthetic cream to be applied before the procedure.


Generally there is no downtime. But you may experience facial redness for 12 to 48 hours after the treatment. Most people are able to return to normal daily activities immediately after treatment.

Combining Microneedling with Other Treatments

Microneedling is often paired with other treatments to increase effectiveness and rejuvenation results. The microchannels created in the skin by Dermapen 3MD treatment allow for topical treatments to more deeply penetrate layers of the skin, so your aesthetician will likely recommend applying professional-quality topical products immediately after your microneedling treatment. Some patients may also choose to have chemical peels or injectables such as Botox along with microneedling to enhance their anti-aging results. During a consultation, a complete and personalized treatment plan will be created for you to address all of your goals.

"Even though I have seen Dr. Ditesheim for non-surgical procedures, he took his time to understand my desire to have natural result and also took time to discuss non surgical options and which ones were the best for my skin and facial structure. He is probably a little more expensive than going to a med spa for botox or fillers but there is an artistry involved when your doctor has the training and knowledge of a skilled plastic surgeon. No comparison!"
