Dermapen / Micro-Needling - Boost collagen and elasticity

Microneedling is one of the most effective ways to improve skin texture, treat scars, fine lines and wrinkles, with minimal downtime.

Using either the Dermapen or SkinPen, this state-of-the-art precision tool is designed to stimulate your skin’s natural ability to produce new collagen.


The procedure lasts less than an hour. After applying a topical numbing cream, Dr. Cockerham slowly glides the Dermapen over the repair area as the micro-needling penetrates the areas where scars, wrinkles and elasticity problems exist. The micro penetrations cause the skin to naturally recover and rejuvenate by triggering collagen production.


Micro-needling can reverse years of sun damage, address fine lines and wrinkles, skin tone, texture, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and enhance the overall appearance of the skin.


With effects comparable to CO2 treatments (ActiveFX and DeepFX), microneedling has significantly less downtime. The skin’s inflammatory reaction with micro-needling fades within hours to a pinkish hue that may last 12-24 hours. Monthly treatments are recommended for full benefit in about six months.

To reduce visible redness, we recommend healing camouflage, peptides or hyaluronic acid after the procedure, and to protect the skin with physical blockbased sun screen—all available through Dr. Cockerham’s office.
