Damascus, MD area dermatologist reviews microneedling device skin needling

Dr Ronald B. Prussick, Washington Dermatology Center Providing Skin Needling Treatment

It is well-known by dermatologists that collagen is an important aspect of beautiful, youthful looking skin. Collagen is what gives skin that great texture and plump appearance. However, after patients hit the age of thirty, they will notice a natural decline in the amount of collagen in their skin. This results in less firm skin. Skin laxity is what contributes to the development of fine lines and wrinkles. However, if patients have a procedure performed that can stimulate collagen production, this may be beneficial when it comes to improving the texture of skin as well as addressing concerns such as deep acne scars.

A procedure known as skin needling can be performed for patients in and around the Damascus, MD community at Washington Dermatology Center. Dr. Ron Prussick offers skin needling with a microneedling device. The microneedling device is a small device that administers very small holes in the skin. These holes stimulate the body’s natural healing process due to the injury, which ramps up the production of collagen. Collagen can add firmness and volume to the face making it a wonderful way to produce natural results over time.

Microneedling device skin needling is an effective cosmetic procedure readily available to new and existing patients at Washington Dermatology Center. Dr. Ron Prussick and his team encourage individuals to ask about this innovative treatment and how it can improve and enhance their skin’s texture, tone, and overall appearance. Dermal needling needs to be done several times for optimum results, so our team will encourage scheduling treatments on a regular basis. Patients will also integrate a proper skin care routine to enhance the results and ensure their skin looks great!

Dr. Ron Prussick of Washington Dermatology Center reviews with his patients the advantages of skin needling. He may recommend it over other procedures such as injectables and laser skin resurfacing. This determination is based on the patient’s personal choices, budget, as well as the severity of their skin concerns. Working with patients and finding out what works best for their specific needs is the most beneficial way of determining the treatment of choice.
