How does collagen induction therapy work?
Microneedling skin therapy , also known as “collagen induction therapy” works by naturally triggering the skin’s production of new fibroblasts, monocytes, and keratinocytes to release collagen and elastin to strengthen and improve the skin. This process is started when extremely fine needles puncture the skin, creating a controlled micro-injury in the dermis and epidermis that prompts your body to begin the healing process. Thousands of these tiny micro-punctures are created in the skin, triggering healthy skin cells to replace damaged cells, stimulate collagen and elastin production, and leave your skin smoother, brighter, and healthier.
In addition to giving your skin an all-over improved appearance, micro-needling can treat a number of skin concerns, including:
- Visible signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles
- Rough skin texture and the size of pores
- Sun damage and sun spots
- Acne scars or scarring from chicken pox or surgery
- Stretch marks
Depending on your beauty needs and the severity of your skin concerns, microneedling may be combined with other skin resurfacing treatments to provide more dramatic facial rejuvenation results.
What’s the difference between Rejuvapen and other microneedling treatments?
Most micro-needling skin treatments use a derma-roller to trigger the skin’s natural repairing process. The Rejuvapen, however, is a motorized device that allows our experienced aestheticians to fully control and customize your Boston microneedling facial rejuvenation treatment, depending on your skin and desired results. Needle depth can be adjusted depending on the severity of the issue being treated and where the procedure is required. The unique design of the Rejuvapen allows it to access hard-to-reach areas of the face, and an adjustable speed dial also provides more control.
Traditional dermal rollers tug at the skin, increasing the risk of tearing, discomfort, and infection. Rejuvapen is specially designed to provide safe treatment, with needles placed in an up and down motion perpendicular to your skin to improve comfort and results.
At-home devices may damage your skin, cause several days of swelling and redness, worsen acne breakouts and other skin issues, or achieve underwhelming results. When it comes to your face, it’s best to trust the experts!Before & After » SEE Patient results in our gallery
What can I expect during a Rejuvapen microneedling treatment at Boston Plastic Surgery?
The first step of any cosmetic procedure is to have an evaluation and consultation. When you meet with one of our highly trained skincare experts at our Skin Wellness Center in Boston, you will have the opportunity to explore your skin rejuvenation options and hear expert recommendations for your specific skin type and concerns. If we determine that Rejuvapen skin needling is a good option for you, we will show you to a comfortable, private treatment room to get started.
Before your facial rejuvenation treatment, we will cleanse and prepare your skin to minimize the risk of infection. Because Rejuvapen creates micro-channels in the skin, topical solutions may also be used in conjunction with treatment to enhance your results. Hyaluronic acid, vitamin e, or growth factors are commonly used.
We will slowly pass the pen device over your skin in a circular motion to ensure optimal coverage and treatment. Treatment with Rejuvapen is relatively comfortable with no numbing cream needed; most of our patients report no more than a very slight pressure or the occasional, brief stinging sensation from the tiny needles. After your procedure, you may experience slight swelling and redness, though these symptoms should resolve in a day or so. It’s important to protect your skin for the first few days by keeping your skin moisturized and using SPF.
How can a microneedling treatment improve my skin?
With a Rejuvapen micro-needling Boston treatment, you can experience several benefits, such as quick tightening, lifting, and rejuvenation of skin. Virtually anywhere can be treated, though most of our dermatology patients see the best results from microneedling on the skin of their:
Micro-needling helps to boost your collagen and elastin production, improving skin structure, support, and elasticity. Increased collagen production can diminish fine lines and wrinkles, minimize pores, and reduce the appearance of stretch marks, acne scars, and keloid scarring. Microneeding can also be used to achieve a smoother, plumper lip appearance.
How long does it take to see results after a microneedling procedure?
Our patients often begin to see quick results from micro-needling, usually within a few days following their procedure. You can expect to see optimal skin rejuvenation after several months of continued care as your skin’s natural healing process takes place and collagen and elastin production increases. For this reason, we often recommend a series of treatments depending on your unique skin care needs.
How long do microneedling results last?
While micro-needling rejuvenation can improve your overall skin tone and texture, the results are not permanent, though the lightening of a variety of scars–like acne scars, surgical scars and stretch marks–may be. To help maintain increased collagen production and see continued improvement from micro-needling treatments, we’ll recommend a skin care plan for continued sessions based on your skin goals.
How much does Boston microneedling cost?
The exact price of micro-needling depends on the number of treatment sessions required, which varies depending on each patient’s individual needs. This need is determined at your initial evaluation and consultation at our premier Boston Skin Wellness Center, where you will be given the total price for your rejuvenation treatment.
What professional skin care products can I add to microneedling?
