FDA Approved Microneedling in Carroll County Maryland
Microneedling, also referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy, is a treatment that is performed using a micropen to create pinpoint penetration of hyaluronic acid or growth factor serums into the skin. Tiny, sterilized needles are used to stimulate the body’s natural repairing abilities to generate collagen and elastin and improve fibroblast activity. If you are in search of Maryland microneedling, our MedSpa treatments at Vitality Aesthetics are FDA-approved, performed by licensed and trained registered nurses, and are overseen by dual-Board certified facial plastic surgeon and Medical Director, Dr. Ravi Dahiya.
Cosmetic microneedling is proven to improve the signs of aging and to correct skin imperfections such as fine lines, wrinkles, creases, uneven and irregular skin texture and large pores, acne scars and scars from trauma and health conditions like chicken pox, expression lines like crow’s feet, laugh lines, scowl lines, and frown lines, and skin damaged by environmental factors like pollution and the sun and behavioral factors like smoking. Microneedling is not limited to the face and neck. It can also be performed on areas of the body to reduce the appearance of stretch marks. Many people mistakenly think that at home dermarolling is equivalent to cosmetic microneedling. Dermarolling can damage the skin and the needles are uncontrolled. With cosmetic microneedling with a micropen, the needles are controlled and the depth can be adjusted by treatment area. The micropen needles penetrate the upper layer of the skin and the hyaluronic acid and growth factor serums used are more effective because they are able to deeply penetrate the skin as well. We use the only FDA-approved microneedling device, SkinPen®, to treat our clients at Vitality Aesthetics and our clients are delighted with the results.
You will notice an improvement in your skin a few days after your first treatment and will continue to notice results as your body produces new collagen and elastin. This treatment is ideal for those seeking to noticeably rejuvenate skin with minimal social downtime and impact to routine, daily activities. A topical anesthetic cream is applied to minimize any discomfort and you may notice redness and swelling after the treatment that may last a day or two. You should refrain from using any skin care products containing acids, receiving chemical peels, wearing makeup, and spending time in the sun for a couple of days after your treatment. You should always wear SPF and especially after a SkinPen® cosmetic microneedling procedure.
For each treatment, we use a disposable microneedling tip and biosheath, for the safety of our clients. Your treatment also includes a free tube of Rescue Calming Complex for you to use as part of your post-treatment care. The Rescue Calming Complex is exclusively designed for care after cosmetic microneedling to hydrate, calm, heal, and protect the skin while reducing any redness and inflammation that you experience. Niacinamide and Vitamin E are essential for the skin’s repair, collagen growth, and elastin production. Rescue Calming Complex facilitates the action of remodeling the skin.
Our clients tend to see significant changes in their skin after a series of three to five treatments and many like to visit Vitality Aesthetics, serving the Baltimore-Washington area, to receive a series of Maryland microneedling treatments twice a year. This safe and effective treatment may be performed every four to six weeks, depending on the patient. Listen to how microneedling changed David’s life.
