What Is Microneedling?
When over-the-counter skin products aren't giving you effective results, but you don't want plastic surgery, try minimally invasive treatments to refresh and rejuvenate the skin like microneedling. Board-certified physician Dr. Austin Mitchell is happy to offer microneedling (collagen induction therapy) with the gold-standard SkinPen at his office in Nashville, TN. Microneedling uses several fine needles to safely and effectively make micro-injuries in the skin. The micro-injuries prompt the natural production of elastin and collagen, two nutrients that increase the appearance and health of your skin. Easily enhanced with other treatments, such as vitamin-rich serums, microneedling can help minimize lines and wrinkles, scars, pores, stretch marks, and more. Schedule a consultation at Brentwood Skin Clinic to learn more about the exciting results of microneedling and how to customize your procedure for your skin concerns and goals.

- Safe, nonsurgical treatment option
- Reduces appearance of scarring, sun spots, or stretch marks
- Improved feel and tone of skin

Who is a Candidate for Microneedling?
Anyone who wants to improve the overall appearance and health of their skin, reduce signs of aging, and treat sun damage may be a candidate for microneedling. However, all candidates should attend a consultation at Brentwood Skin Clinic before proceeding with treatment. Dr. Mitchell can review your medical history and current skin concerns to determine if microneedling is safe and effective for your complexion. Inform our team if you are pregnant, have a history of scarring, or have an active skin condition such as eczema, acne, or psoriasis, as these may increase your risk of complications.
How Does SkinPen Microneedling Work?
The SkinPen is considered the gold standard of microneedling devices used by the leading aesthetic skin care providers worldwide. It was the first microneedling device cleared for use by the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) yet still sets the standard for safety, reliability, and results. With rigorous safety and efficacy testing, it's no wonder why clients consistently give the SkinPen a nearly perfect satisfaction rating.
Microneedling works by making micro-injuries in the skin that stimulate the body's natural healing response promoting new collagen and elastin growth. This new collagen and elastin rejuvenate the skin from the inside out to help reduce the appearance of multiple skin imperfections, improve tone and texture, and reduce the overall signs of aging for refreshed, youthful-looking skin. Collagen induction therapy (microneedling) at Brentwood Skin Clinic using the SkinPen is completed in a treatment room in about 30 – 60 minutes. Although most patients generally experience little or no discomfort, we can provide local anesthesia or numbing cream if desired to ensure your visit with us is enjoyable. The areas of skin being addressed will be cleansed before the handpiece is evenly passed over the targeted regions. Once the microneedling procedure is complete, a vitamin-infused serum can be applied so the nutrients can penetrate deeper into the skin to boost results. A moisturizer will be massaged in along with sunscreen since the treated skin will be sensitive after the treatment.
What Can I Expect After Microneedling?
Following the microneedling procedure at Brentwood Skin Clinic, you might experience mild redness and swelling for about one day; however, this should subside on its own. It may take about 1 – 2 months as your collagen and elastin levels increase until you see visible improvements in the appearance and health of your treated skin. You should schedule approximately 4 – 6 maintenance treatments every 4 – 6 weeks to achieve ideal results and long-term skin benefits.
Brentwood Skin Clinic Reviews
Dr Mitchell is the best dermatologist ; as of yet. He listens, observes and treats the overall medical conditions that I might have ... that's effecting my skin.
TL;DR -- the level of communication and transparency is exceptional, scheduling was effortless, and the staff are professional yet easygoing. This is how visits with a physician *ought* to be. Full review: It's been a while since I've done a dermatology checkup and even though I know I shouldn't neglect it, I avoided it mainly because of the friction with scheduling I always seem to face. My primary care physician is at Vanderbilt, so I kind of always assumed I had to stay in the Vandy system for referrals. You can't book dermatologists via their fancy app, though, and it can be tough to find time during their workday to call. Suffice to say that my experience there has always been a headache, and my latest call was no different; when I called to book a 15-30 minute checkup with ANYONE in the entire Vandy Dermatology department, their next available appointment was more than 6 months from now. SIX. MONTHS. This was just the nudge I needed to search elsewhere, and luckily I found Dr Mitchell's practice. I was able to schedule an appointment online for 2 business days later (!!) at literally whatever time I wanted. Once in the examination room, Dr Mitchell and his assistant were all business (but extremely friendly and disarming) as he talked me through what he was seeing, what constitutes a concern vs. what's not a concern, his recommendations for any treatment options, and the associated costs for any/all of the treatments. Dr Mitchell and his staff are phenomenal and I look forward to referring the Brentwood Skin Clinic to anyone who will listen to me!
Great dermatologist! Wonderful bedside manners!
I can't say enough about my positive first time visit. First of all, I was able to get in quickly thanks to the receptionist who returned my call and got me in the next day (due to a cancellation). The staff was friendly, the office was clean, and the doctor was on time, knowledgeable and addressed all of my concerns. Two weeks post visit and I am already seeing improvements. I would highly recommend this doctor and practice.
WOW! I had gone to see someone previously before coming in. I saw and spoke with that specialist a brief amount of time and it was one of those things where I left just as confused as when I went in lol. It was not clear to me at all. When I came HERE, from the front desk to my actual visit, everyone was fun, kind and welcoming. At a place like this you feel more seen and heard. I was givin a CLEAR plan, and a back up plan for the back up plan lol. I left feeling very happy & a lot less confused than I was previously. I also got my product I needed while I was there which was also nice, because sometimes picking up meds is a whole other situation! Overall I would def recommend!
