The best scar treatment in the Potomac, Maryland area addresses many concerns

Dr Ronald B. Prussick, Washington Dermatology Center Providing Best Scar treatment in Potomac

Scarring may occur in several dermatologic situations. An unfortunate side effect of acne, surgery, pregnancy, or an injury, scarring can have a lasting effect on your sense of confidence and satisfaction with your appearance. Dr. Prussick of Washington Dermatology Center offers the bestvariety of scar treatment services so that our patients from Potomac and surrounding areas may regain confidence in their appearance. One such treatment is microneedling device.

Acne scars

Acne is, for many people, a chronic problem that leaves the skin damaged long after blemishes have cleared. Microneedling device micro-needling treatments stimulate the collagen production process within the skin, which leads to the production of new elastin and collagen in addition to capillary growth. This process, in which blood supply is improved, lays a healthier foundation after fibrous acne scars have been broken up.

Surgical scars

Incisions made during surgical procedures are seen by the body as any other injury, which means scarring can occur. Some people, depending on the type or location of incisions or the healing response will experience the development of thick scarring. For many years, the treatment of scars has been somewhat limited. microneedling device is designed to facilitate the body’s own healing tendencies, and can be effective on hypertrophic scars or even keloids.


The physiology of burn scars is different from other types of scars, and your dermatologist has the experience to address the needs of burned skin. The number of microneedling device treatments will be recommended, depending on the unique characteristics of a burn scar and its severity.

Stretch marks

Stretch marks, which occur when the skin is stretched too quickly, can leave silvery streaks on the skin in visible places such as the back, arms, or abdomen. A variety of treatments currently exists for stretch marks, including topical retinoid creams, dermabrasion, or even laser treatments. microneedling device treatments for stretch marks work by encouraging the increased production of collagen.

How microneedling device works on scars

The effectiveness of microneedling device treatment lies partially in the adjustable needle depth, which allows your dermatologist to accurately target cells for the release of growth factors and activation of fibroblasts. As elastin and collagen are stimulated, skin becomes healthier and smoother through natural processes.
