There’s a good reason that professional microneedling in Frederick is one of our most popular non-invasive skin care procedures. Alazzo Med Spa specializes in this procedure to restore and improve complexions by reducing wrinkles and rejuvenating aging, saggy skin. You might be surprised to know how many benefits it has beyond anti-aging properties. This procedure can also treat scars, reduce visible signs of sun damage and acne, shrink pores, reduce redness from rosacea, improve the effectiveness of topical products, and tackle stretch marks. Microneedling is safe, has minimal downtime, and you realize improvements almost immediately.
During this straightforward cosmetic procedure, your skincare professional uses tiny, sterilized needles to puncture the skin, creating a controlled skin injury. This causes your body to produce more collagen and elastin, refreshing it and creating a more youthful appearance.
Skincare professionals have offered microneedling since 1995, but about five years ago, some companies began selling microneedling devices for home use. If you’re considering undergoing a microneedling procedure for any of its many benefits, you may be tempted to purchase a device to use in your own home. While this is less expensive than going to a med spa, it is important to understand the differences between a DIY microneedling device for home use and a procedure at a med spa under the supervision of a highly trained skincare professional. Let’s take a look at what to consider…
Our microneedling devices
Alazzo uses micro-needling devices with needles that are between one and three millimeters long. However, the needles on at-home microneedling devices are less than one millimeter long. Why do needles matter? Because shorter needles can only penetrate the top layer of the skin. The longer needles we use in our professional microneedling in Frederick can penetrate deeper to give superior results.
Trust the Professionals
At-home microneedling procedures have a higher risk of infection and other adverse effects if they are not performed by trained professionals, Too much pressure, can cause redness or irritation to your skin. In extreme cases, too much pressure can result in scarring, especially in very sensitive areas of your skin. Even though the injuries caused by microneedling are microscopic wounds, they are wounds nonetheless. Therefore, they are susceptible to infection, especially if you don’t properly clean your face before and after you use a microneedling device or if it’s not properly sterilized.
Superior results, fewer treatments
You’ve undoubtedly heard the phrase, “You get what you pay for.” While professional microneedling in Frederick may be more expensive, you can expect better results in fewer treatments. This is because our professionals are trained in the best practices for optimal results. When you perform a procedure at home, you will need several weekly sessions before you see results. With professional treatment, results come to life after only one visit. Professional treatments also only require maintenance every four to six weeks.
effective, safe, professional
