Frederick area dermatologist describes the microneedling device treatment for acne scars

Dr Ronald B. Prussick, Washington Dermatology Center Providing Micro Needling Device treatment

Acne scars can be troublesome for many patients. They can be a visible reminder of severe acne in the past and can make individuals feel self-conscious about their appearance when socializing with others. Dr. Ron Prussick and the team of Washington Dermatology Center offer patients a series of solutions for addressing acne scarring left behind from blemishes and pustules. For many, the microneedling device for acne scars may be the best treatment option.

The microneedling device is a device that offers skin needling. This is a wonderful alternative to procedures such as fractional laser skin resurfacing. The device can be adjusted to address different depths, skin types, and coverage of the treatment area. The microneedling device is used to administer small holes into the skin that stimulates the body’s response to heal. When the body begins to heal and rebuild the area of the injury, it is done with the stimulation of collagen production. Collagen can add volume to the skin, thus reducing the appearance of acne scars.

It is important for patients to understand that several procedures may need to be done to achieve desired results. Most patients will benefit from approximately four to six treatments with a quality dermatologist. Dr. Ron Prussick also educates patients in understanding results occur over time, typically within a few months. However, this is a great method of treatment that has predictable, sustainable results that look natural and allow patients to enjoy the advantages of smoother, more attractive skin.

The microneedling device is an affordable and more long-term solution for acne scarring. Patients who may not be deemed appropriate for this procedure may ask the team of Washington Dermatology Center about alternative options such as dermal fillers. Dermal fillers add volume directly into the acne scars to make them more shallow and less noticeable on the skin. This method provides immediate results but needs to be reinjected regularly to maintain the skin’s new appearance.

Dr. Ron Prussick and the team of Washington Dermatology Center encourage patients to book an appointment with his practice to find out if microneedling device treatments are the best choice for acne scarring. Our practice is located at two convenient places including Rockville and Frederick.
