Is dermal needling hurting or helping skin for patients in the Frederick area?

Dr Ronald B. Prussick, Washington Dermatology Center Providing Dermal Needling Hurting in Rockville

At the practice of the Washington Dermatology Center, Dr. Ron Prussick and his staff explain to patients the wide range of services provided in their state-of-the-art facility. From simple skin cancer screenings to more extensive procedures such as laser skin resurfacing, their practice has been equipped with some of the latest technologies to help patients with a large number of problems. This may include acne scarring, surgical scars, stretch marks, and large pores, just to name a few.

Dermal needling is a great option for patients who are considering alternatives to other treatment solutions such as lasers and photo facials. However, many patients ask their dermatologist, is dermal needling hurting or helping the skin?

The idea of dermal needling can be rather startling for some patients in and around the area of Germantown. Dermal needling is essentially using fine needles to puncture the skin at precise depth. This is done for a purpose: it stimulates the skin’s natural healing process during which collagen and elastin are produced. Collagen and elastin are important for supporting skin laxity and enhancing the skin’s overall texture and tone. Over the course of time, after dermal needling appointments, patients will see the gradual improvements in how their skin looks and feels.

Dermal needling is done with the microneedling device, which is has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for reducing scarring and other cosmetic imperfections. It is used to treat the skin without the need for lasers and has a far less recovery time than the latter.

If you are a patient in the community who wants to speak to a dedicated dermatologist who can provide quality care and attention for you and your family, Dr. Ron Prussick is here to help. At the Washington Dermatology Center, we encourage patients to make appointments and consult with our team to find out about all we have to offer for rejuvenation of the skin and improvement in skin’s health and wellness.
