Medical Microneedling in Laurel, MD

Imagine having the ability to diminish wrinkles and fine lines while adding volume to the skin using the body’s natural healing properties. Dr. Clarke Bennett is a board-certified family practitioner who decided to expand her practice to help people dealing with facial scarring. At A Better You medispa, Dr. Clarke-Bennett uses microneedling to reduce acne scaring and the signs of aging for people in Anne Arundel County and the surrounding areas. Most people agree: looking young and revitalized starts with your skin.

During your microneedling appointment, Dr. Clarke-Bennett will use microscopic needles to carefully activate your skin’s collagen and elastin production. These two compounds are responsible for beautiful, youthful-looking skin. Microneedling patients enjoy the resulting fullness and volume that is achieved. No incisions, anesthesia, or downtime are required.

Microneedling is a popular technique for skin rejuvenation and scar amelioration. This noninvasive procedure can be used in combination with the following procedures to increase its effectiveness:

  • Trichloroacetic acid
  • Glycolic acid
  • PRP acne therapy

How Does Microneedling Compare to Fractional Laser Therapy?

Recent studies show milder side effects shorter downtime for patients who use microneedling as compared to those who use fractional laser therapy. Dr. Clarke-Bennett will help you select a skincare treatment that works best for your individual skin type.

Is Microneedling Safe for my Skin Type?

Microneedling is a safe treatment option for people with most skin types. We recommend microneeding to patients with darker skin types who are looking to treat acne scarring due to the low risk of adverse effects and post-treatment inflammation. Microneedling is also an excellent treatment option for people with lighter skin types due to the low risk of post-treatment hyperpigmentation. Microneedling is a safer and more versatile alternative to more invasive surgical procedures.

Is Microneedling Safe for People with Botox and Fillers?

At A Better You Medispa, we recommend that people wait at least 3 weeks after getting BOTOX® & dermal fillers before scheduling a microneedling appointment.

It is a perfectly normal part of aging to notice lines on our faces that weren’t present in our youth. However, just because a wrinkle appears doesn’t mean it has to stay there.
