Medical microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, is a revolutionary cosmetic procedure that is taking the cosmetic medical world by storm. This procedure is minimally invasive and triggers the production of collagen without removing the top layer of skin. Available at Dermatology + Plastic Surgery, led by board-certified dermatologist Anita Saluja, MD, and double board-certified plastic surgeon Rebecca Novo, MD, medical microneedling may be an ideal cosmetic solution for residents of Melbourne, Indialantic, Viera, Brevard County, the beaches, and surrounding areas who desire skin improvement.
SkinPen Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that utilizes a special SkinPen Microneedling device to trigger the skin to increase collagen production, improving the overall volume, elasticity, and firmness of the skin.
SkinPen Microneedling done in our office is customized and often at deeper depths of needle penetration for improved results than microneedling done outside of a medical practice. At Dermatology + Plastic Surgery, we combine SkinPen Microneedling with growth factor application, with platelet-rich plasma (PRP), or with radiofrequency (RF).
SkinPen Microneedling is effective in treating the following conditions of the skin:
This procedure has earned wide popularity among patients and doctors alike because it triggers collagen production while keeping the top layer of the skin intact. This greatly reduces recovery time, and patients often return to usual activities the next day. Usually, a series of 3 to 6 treatments is recommended for optimal results.
SkinPen Microneedling is performed using a device that produces a tingling “prickly” sensation that is not actually painful. Our patients have a very comfortable experience due to the use of medical-grade topical anesthetic cream applied for 30 to 60 minutes prior to the SkinPen Microneedling. The treatment may cause a temporary reddening for up to two days after treatment, creating a sensation similar to a mild sunburn. Men may be advised to postpone shaving facial hair until irritation subsides following the procedure.
Prior to treatment, advise anti-aging product application for 12 hours, avoid sunburn, and inform us if you have a history of herpes (cold sores, fever blisters) so appropriate anti-viral medication can be prescribed if needed. Arrive with a clean face if that is the area to be treated.
After treatment, use any healing balms as recommended. For the first 24 hours, avoid direct sunlight, swimming, and exercise. The next day, it is ok to use medical sunscreen and makeup. Resume your usual anti-aging skin care after day 3.
SkinPen Microneedling is one of the lowest-priced procedures in the cosmetic field for rejuvenating the skin, but prices vary, depending on the size of the treatment area. Cost increases with the addition of a topical growth factor, platelet-rich plasma (PRP), or radiofrequency (RF microneedling). To keep SkinPen Microneedling costs manageable for all of our patients, our office proudly accepts flexible payment options.

I have been to several Dermatology practices through the years, some in Florida, some in the Northeast. I started using For Your Best Self when they opened in Suntree. I use them for all my fillers, skin care products, skin cancer checks and facials. The physicians and all the staff are very caring and skilled. The hydro facial is wonderful. I highly recommend them. They will make you look and feel you best!
I always have a wonderful experience when I visit either location. DeeDee is extremely patient and empathetic during laser treatments. Dr. Saluja and her office assistants are helpful, knowledgeable and honest. I get the best skincare advice and product recommendations here. Highly recommend!
