Microneedling is Another Facial Rejuvenation Option for Those Considering a Facelift in Baltimore Jeffrey Schreiber, MD on 02 Nov 2017
Looking younger and fighting aging is a common goal among most people, and is the driving force that makes many consider a facelift in Baltimore. Of course, there are other facial rejuvenation options, and one that flies under the radar for many is microneedling. This process leaves your skin looking fresher, younger, and healthier while safely producing natural results.
Simply put, this process of facial rejuvenation in Baltimore, which is approved by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, uses microneedles to safely puncture the skin in an orderly fashion. While it may sound intimidating at first, the procedure is completely painless. All it is meant to do is to trigger a response from the skin which begins a natural reparative process.
Once your plastic surgeon in Baltimore has completed the treatment, your skin begins regenerating. At this time it naturally produces new elastin, collagen, and even new skin cells. Over the following weeks, blood flow is increased to the skin and the regenerative process continues, ultimately leaving you with younger and healthier looking skin that continues to improve. Results are typically noticeable around six weeks after the treatment.
The treatment itself lasts about an hour and offers long-lasting results with little to no downtime. People looking to have tighter, younger, healthier skin without having to worry about recovery time are more and more frequently turning to microneedling. The process works on any type of skin, which is not common in other facial rejuvenation procedures. In addition to being able to rejuvenate the skin on your face, microneedling can also be used on the hands, chest, and neck, as well as on stretch marks anywhere else on the body.
