What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling has long been considered a skin resurfacing and anti-aging technique because of its use against fine lines, age spots, acne scars, and uneven texture. Microneedling works by creating micro-injuries, or small pinpricks, to the skin. The depth that the needles are inserted depends on the skin condition targeted for treatment. 

These minor injuries elicit your body’s natural healing system by encouraging collagen and elastin production. A natural part of aging is the changes we begin to see in different areas of the face, neck, and décolletage. These areas are highly susceptible to losing collagen and elastin that support their overall structure and appearance. 

When the skin’s production of elastin decreases, it causes sagging skin, and slowed collagen production decreases th skin’s elasticity. Microneedling causes an inflammatory response that promotes collagen and elastin production. 

Who Is a Candidate for Severna Park Microneedling?

One of the many reasons we love microneedling treatments is because they are safe and effective for just about anyone. The only candidates who may not be eligible for microneedling are those who currently have active acne, open lesions, infections, or wound-healing issues. In those cases we will encourage you to wait until you are medically healed before scheduling your session.

What Skin Imperfections Can Microneedling Treat?

The beauty of microneedling is that it is extremely versatile. If you have more than one type of skin concern, microneedling can smooth away various skins of skin imperfections at the same time, saving you money and time. Some of the facial flaws that microneedling was clinically designed to treat include:

Large Pores

No matter how expensive your skin cleanser is or how often you exfoliate, the best anyone can do is cleanse enlarged pores. Unfortunately, there is no shrinking them with topical solutions once they are expanded. The main reason that pores expand is due to the sebaceous gland. As more oil and dirt collect in the sebaceous gland, the more the pores enlarge.

The collagen and cell renewal production during the healing process following microneedling can help to decrease pore size.

Acne Scars

If you suffered from persistent acne as a teenager or you finally got control of your adult acne, you most likely still bear the physical scars from it. Microneedling can lessen the visibility of depression marks or discoloration scars that are left over from acne. A microneedling treatment stimulates the production of collagen and elastin in the skin, which helps to form new skin cells that can fill in depressed scars while also dispersing the red or brown pigmentation associated with these scars.

Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Fighting lines and wrinkles can sometimes feel like an uphill battle. Expensive creams and treatments are best used as preventative treatments, but once wrinkles are set in their position, it can be nearly impossible to reverse them without the help of a skin expert. Collagen and elastin aren’t just great for rebuilding scars; they are also essential to reversing and preventing fine lines and wrinkles. As microneedling recharges the production of these proteins, fine lines and wrinkles can decrease in severity. 

Uneven skin tone

Uneven skin tone is a broad term for sunspots, dark spots, and forms of hyperpigmentation. They generally develop as a result of getting too much sun or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation from trauma such as acne. You may not have always remembered to put on sunscreen or wear a hat when in the sun for prolonged periods of time. Microneedling can help to break up the hyperpigmentation caused by sun damage and post-inflammatory response.

What To Expect from Your Microneedling Treatment in Glen Burnie

A microneedling treatment at Skinlogic starts with a thorough consultation. We will discuss your skin concerns and evaluate the condition of your skin to confirm this is the right solution for you. During your consultation visit, we will also decide on the correct needle length and the number of treatments needed to achieve your goals. The number of treatments can range from three to six sessions, each done about a month apart from one another. These four-to-six-week recovery periods ensure consistent collagen and elastin production without overwhelming the skin.

When compared to other skin rejuvenation treatments, microneedling is reported as being nearly painless. At the start of your microneedling session, a topical anesthetic will be administered to ensure that you are comfortable and relaxed throughout your appointment. The hand-held device, SkinPen, is equipped with tiny sterile needles. Skinlogic uses AnteAGE Brightening Stem Cell Solution and pure Hyaluronic Acid during the microneedling treatment.  Most clients feel a slight vibration of the tool but not necessarily the punctures of the needles. 

Once your treatment is complete, your face will be reddened, but not painful. Most clients make sure not to plan anything for the rest of the day post-treatment. You will be sent home with a 3 day skincare regimen to encourage healing and promote the production of collagen and elastin production. The next day, you can resume your normal activities and while you might have slight redness, it is easily covered with make-up if desired.  It is important for the effectiveness of the treatment and your results that you follow these instructions closely. 

Recovery After Microneedling in Annapolis

Another reason clients love Microneedling treatments is the easily managed recovery process. Some clients experience slight inflammation, redness, and irritation across the treatment zones for a few days after their Microneedling session. 

Your skin will be red for one to two days. By days three to five, it may begin to flake. These are normal occurrences during the skin healing stage. Avoid picking, scratching, or exfoliating away the flaking skin, as they are essential parts of the healing process. Instead, apply moisturizer liberally to keep your skin hydrated. Areas of Hyperpigmentation can look darker for up to a week. 

You’ll likely notice some improvements to your skin’s tone and texture as early as two weeks after your first session. The maximum effects typically show when the collagen has fully formed.
