What is Microneedling?
When over-the-counter skin care products are no longer proving effective, but you aren't ready for surgery, learn more about minimally invasive treatments to rejuvenate the skin, like microneedling. Dr. Travis James is pleased to perform microneedling (collagen induction therapy) at our office in Providence, UT. Microneedling uses several fine needles to effectively and safely make micro-injuries in the needed areas of the skin. The micro-injuries created with the Dermapen® microneedling technology prompt the natural production of elastin and collagen. These two nutrients then contribute to the health and appearance of your complexion. Often performed with other skin treatments, like vitamin serums or PRP (platelet-rich plasma), microneedling can help reduce stretch marks, scars, and pores. Schedule a consultation at Providence Dermatology to learn more about the benefits of microneedling and ways to personalize your treatment for your needs and goals.
How is Microneedling Performed?
Collagen induction therapy with Dermapen microneedling is done in a treatment room for around 30 – 60 minutes with local anesthesia or numbing cream if preferred, but most patients feel mild or no pain and discomfort. The skin being treated will be cleaned before the microneedling handpiece is passed evenly over. Once the microneedling is done, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) or a serum with a vitamin infusion may be applied for deeper penetration of the nutrients into the skin. A moisturizer will be massaged in along with sun protection because the treated skin will be more sensitive after the procedure.

Dr. James, and Mandy are absolutely fantastic. They jumped through a ton of hoops to help me get dupixent. which is a long process especially with my insurance company being difficult. I highly recommend this clinic to anyone with any dermatology issues. They really care about helping their patients.
Dr. James and his staff are caribg, responsive, and honest. I really appreciate Dr James presenting me with options to reduce a scar without being pushy.
Dr. James is awesome, he was able to get taken care of extremely quickly. I’ve been in for laser removal and stitches. The office is very comfortable and the staff is kind and helpful. Definitely recommend!
The whole experience was great. Scheduling, arriving, being seen, all of it. Felt cared for by Dr. James. Even though it was a quick visit, he took his time to take care of me. Will be back if I need something done. Definitely recommend!

What exactly is microneedling?
Collagen induction therapy, or microneedling, is a minimally invasive treatment to improve the health of your skin. A natural fibrous protein, collagen helps your skin stay supple, smooth, and firm. As you get older, your natural supply of collagen is reduced, and your skin becomes thin and loses elasticity. Microneedling creates small skin wounds. These micro-injuries prompt your skin to generate new skin cell growth and increase collagen production. After a short recovery period, your skin looks firmer, brighter, and healthier.
Can I combine other treatments with microneedling?
In the process of microneedling, channels are made that make it easier for treatments to reach the deeper layers. That's why microneedling is commonly done before other skin treatments, like special serums or platelet-rich plasma (PRP). Microneedling plus PRP is more commonly known as a vampire facial. In your initial consultation, Dr. James will talk about what treatments would enhance your microneedling and which can help your skin's health.
How many treatments are recommended for optimal results?
Usually, patients receive 3 – 6 microneedling sessions to achieve their best results. However, how many sessions you require will depend on the condition of your skin and your goals. Microneedling may be safely done every 4 – 6 weeks as needed. In your initial consultation, Dr. James will be able to estimate how many sessions you will need based on your skin and goals. When your skin goals are reached, Dr. James recommends scheduling maintenance treatments two times a year.
