Complementary Micro Needling Consultations
The goal of microneedling is to create microperforations (small, invisible punctures) in the dermal (lower) layers of your skin while keeping the epidermal (the outer protective layer) intact. This breaks up the old collagen strands in the dermal layers, prompting the production of new collagen and elastin fibers. This technique is known as Collagen Induced Technique (CIT). All this is a very complex process, but the principle is quite easy to understand.
Using a small handheld sterile medical device with multiple micro needles, your aesthetician will perform 1-3 passes over the skin. As the microneedles create microperforations, the skin reacts by shifting into its natural repair mechanism as it produces new collagen and elastin. This natural skin renewal process works from the inside out, resulting in smoother, tighter, more evenly toned skin. This treatment is available for the face, neck and chest.
Absolutely nothing has worked better to improve my acne scars (plus all my skin issues including uneven skin tone) than micro needling. I have spent so much money on lasers, creams, lotions, you name it that I probably could have bought a mansion! Micro needling works. Micro needling really really works. If you have acne scars and I had it all – boxcar, rolling, ice-pick – this is the treatment you need. ~ YELP
MicroNeedling with Platlet Rich Plasma (The “Vampire Facial)
Many of our Boston patients seek a natural method to facial rejuvenation. Platlet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy achieves remarkable skin rejuvenation with your body’s own unique cells and more specifically, autologous platelet-rich plasma.
Blood contains plasma, red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. The platelet rich plasma is extracted from patients’ blood and re-injected on desired areas including wrinkles and acne scars. The platelets gradually increase collagen which thickens and rejuvenates the skin. Blood is drawn from the arm in the same way as with any blood test. Then, using a medical centrifuge and a special method, platelet rich plasma is isolated the resultant growth factors. Using a very thin needle, the growth factors are injected into the desired areas. Once injected, the platelets immediately activate the body’s localized stem cells and begin rejuvenating and revitalizing the scalp to produce growth. The procedure is very tolerable with minimal discomfort and little to no downtime.
PRP is safe and natural because the procedure concentrates the regenerating cells from your own body directly back into the area where they are needed.
