Why patient in Potomac should use the Microneedling device for acne scars

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

When it comes to acne scars, many patients in the Potomac area who have them feel self-conscious about their appearance. They may be worried about how they look to others when they have poor texture and tone due to blemishes from the past. This is often the point when patients book an appointment with Dr. Ron Prussick of the Washington Dermatology Center to ask about procedures that can reduce the appearance of acne scars. For many patients, the microneedling device is the best treatment option.

Why should patients consider the microneedling device for acne scars? The microneedling device is a dermal needling treatment that can be used for acne scars and other skin imperfections including large pores, stretch marks, and surgical scars. It works by using very fine needles that pierce the skin and stimulate the body’s natural response to healing with the production of collagen. Collagen is known for adding volume to the skin, and therefore will reduce the depth of the scars that are targeted during treatment.

The microneedling device is an effective and affordable alternative to laser skin rejuvenation services commonly recommended by dermatologists for a variety of skin concerns. This treatment can be used on a wide range of skin types and is extremely safe for even those with dark, ethnic skin. Our practice is proud to offer microneedling device dermal needling as an option for patients who cannot afford laser therapies yet want something effective and appropriate for their acne scarring.

Microneedling device treatment does require several sessions to achieve desired results. Most patients will benefit from approximately four treatments spaced a month to six weeks apart. Patients will notice gradual improvements in the texture of their skin that will be seen for a long time. The microneedling device has various settings, which allow the dermatologist to control the strength of treatments and ensure the best results.

If you live in or around the areas of Potomac, Rockville, or Frederick and are ready to achieve a more beautiful appearance to your skin, contact Dr. Ron Prussick and his team of professionals today to book a consultation appointment and initial skin evaluation.
