Improve the look of your skin with innovative dermatology treatments in the Rockville, Maryland area
One of the first things we notice in others, and in ourselves, is the complexion of the skin. Understandably, we want to feel good about the appearance of our skin. Dr. Prussick is an experienced dermatologist who has helped many men and women restore healthy tone and texture with specific dermatology treatments. Using the microneedling device device in our Rockville or Frederick office, we can address a number of concerns gently and effectively.
microneedling device can treat:
- Large pores
- Wounds and scars
- Sun damage
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Uneven texture
Innovative treatment for excellent results
Microneedling device treatments apply a special technique through which the skin is enhanced without invasive surgical procedures. Essentially, microneedling device is fractional micro needling, a treatment that opens up hundreds of tiny areas of the skin, encouraging the production of collagen and elastin. As these substances increase, the skin naturally rejuvenates over time.
Different problems linked by a single thread
Scars from acne, burns, or incisions have something in common with stretch marks and wrinkles, and that is collagen. This substance promotes youthful, plump skin. As we age and experience sun damage, collagen is lost, and the skin looks looser and older. Microneedling device, by encouraging collagen quickly, provides both immediate and progressive results that can last several months with good sun protection.
Before microneedling device, micro-needling skin treatments were delivered via dermal rollers. This original treatment tended to be more uncomfortable and more risky, with the potential to create “trenches” of damage in the epidermis. Microneedling device features an automated vertical stamping technique that is highly effective, far more comfortable, and safer than dermal roller treatments. To improve comfort, a topical numbing cream can be applied before treatment.
