We are now offering microneedling with the SkinPen at Inspire Cosmetic Surgery & Med Spa. Get productive results in the tone and texture of your facial skin with our newest skin rejuvenation treatments at our office with microneedling. The SkinPen will produce tiny holes in your skin from the microneedles and your skin will respond by starting to heal itself (boosting your natural collagen and elastin production in the process). Our board-certified plastic surgeons offer combination of controlled physical injury to the dermis to tighten the skin and decrease facial lines and wrinkles, acne scars, neck and chest lines, and mild neck skin laxity. Microneedling can also be combined with other skin rejuvenation treatments at our office in Delray Beach, FL for truly amazing results.
"What an amazing team!! Dr. Goodwin, Kathy and Angela made a very stressful life event involving my double mastectomy and reconstruction turn from a nightmare into a dream. Very supportive with great bedside manner. This truly talented surgeon has your best interests in mind always."- H.V. / Yelp / Feb 05, 2019

"4 months ago, Dr. Goodwin performed neck lipo to reduce genetic "neck fullness/double chin." I'm an early 50's male and I got a very good result. Dr. G encouraged me to have general anesthesia for optimal results. He said this allows him to be more thorough. He never tried to sell me on chin or cheek procedures. He's a straight talker who doesn't over promise. I talked with one other Dr. who was $500 cheaper, but his "after" photos were not so good. I now feel much better about the way I look."- D.I. / Healthgrades / Feb 01, 2019
"Male - Neck Lipo (No thermi) Happy With Results From Dr. Goodwin - Since high school I had a prominent pouch of fat under my chin. It did not really get worse or better with weight gain or loss. Last year, when I began talking to Dr's about possibly correcting this problem, one Dr. told me I needed to have neck and lower face lift ($13,000). The same Dr. gave me a 7K quote on doing my eyes ( I had not asked him about my eyes). Dr. G and 3 other Dr.s said that since my skin was tight, a face lift was not recommended. I brought up the idea of having a chin implant with Dr. G, but he disagreed, and said he thought I would do fine with just neck lipo. He was not my cheapest option, but he's a confident, plainspoken man. I feel lucky that I found him and made the choice to have him do the surgery."- Anonymous / Vitals / Jan 31, 2019

The best candidates for microneedling may exhibit the following skin problems:
- Uneven skin tone
- Redness or hyperpigmentation
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scars
- Skin laxity
- Sun damage and/or sun spots
- Rough texture
During your skin analysis, our experienced plastic surgeons will guide you in deciding the best course of action for your skin and if microneedling is the right rejuvenation treatment needed for your problem areas.
What to Expect
Prior to the procedure, the treated area is cleaned and a thin layer of a topical gel is applied to numb the skin. The doctor will apply a sterile cartridge-tip with 12 micro-needles to a handheld device. The device will be pressed gently across the skin, gliding in one direction until the entire area has been treated. The feeling is comparable to sand paper moving over the skin. The procedure will result in tiny holes, known as micro channels, on the skin which will close almost immediately, triggering a healing response. This results in renewed skin, including a thickened dermis, which will soften the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and scars. The procedure takes around 15 – 30 minutes.
A patient can expect the treated area to appear bright red, similar to a sunburn, immediately after microneedling. The redness can last anywhere from a day to up to a week. The intensity and duration of the redness are dependent upon the number of passes performed on the treatment area, as well as the particular area treated since microneedling can be performed on the face, neck, arms and décolleté. In some cases, there’s pinpoint bleeding. Microneedling allows improved absorption of creams, gels and serums, and our team will determine the best products for the patient post-procedure. These can include bleaching or lightening serums, vitamin C or hyaluronic serums to accelerate results.
Right after the procedure, patients can expect the skin to glow. Over the course of a few weeks, a patient will see a marked improvement in skin’s color, tone and texture. In addition, there should be a drastic reduction of lines and wrinkles. Microneedling is also effective in diminishing acne and traumatic scars and stretch marks. A patient’s appearance can continue to improve up to 6 months following initial treatment. While some patients benefit from a single treatment, 2 – 3 treatments are advised to get the best possible results. We will work closely with a patient to develop the right course of treatment based on his or her individual needs.
