8 Conditions that Get Better With Microneedling

While the concept of microneedling might sound frightening to some, it’s actually a minimally-invasive, safe way to roll back the years and correct issues with the skin. This includes conditions like large pores, fine lines, and even acne scars. If you’re looking for an easy way to brighten and tighten your face, microneedling might be exactly the treatment you need. 

Laughlin Plastic Surgery in Annapolis, Maryland, provides cosmetic skin services of all kinds, including microneedling. If you’re struggling with a skin condition, aging, or just want to touch-up the color and texture of your face, Dr. Daniel Laughlin and his team can explain the microneedling process and help you decide if it’s right for you. 

How microneedling works 

Microneedling is a simple concept that uses your own immune system and healing ability to your advantage. The process involves inflicting micro-injuries to the skin’s surface using a roller lined with ultra-small, sterile needles. Once the skin is lightly pricked, your body responds by healing the area, which encourages the production of collagen and elastin. 

While this sounds unpleasant, the needles are small and shallow enough that the pain will be mild at worst. We can provide numbing gel beforehand and healing serum afterward to ensure your comfort. 

What microneedling can do for you 

Microneedling is used by dermatologists and aestheticians to treat a number of issues, particularly these eight skin conditions: 

  1. Fine lines and wrinkles
  2. Acne scars 
  3. Sun spots (or age spots)
  4. Large pores
  5. Uneven skin tone 
  6. Uneven skin texture
  7. Loose skin (reduced elasticity)
  8. Melasma

If you’re struggling with any of these conditions, microneedling can help smooth out your skin, brighten your face, roll back aging, and treat issues like melasma. Best of all, it can be done multiple times to improve your results. 

While microneedling might not completely change your appearance in a single session, it can get you one step closer to the complexion you want. After the microneedling is done, you can go straight home. No aftercare, no follow-up, and no downtime. Just make sure to wear sunscreen and avoid harsh cleansers. 

While microneedling can be done at home, it’s best to consult a professional when doing treatments like this. At-home microneedling rollers cannot be sterilized properly, and you can damage your skin while using them. Professional clinics are staffed with aestheticians trained in using these tools, so you’ll be in safe hands.
