Microneedling (Collagen Induction Therapy)
Microneedling In Boston
Revitalize your skin and unveil a glowing complexion with the rejuvenating benefits of microneedling or micropenning: after only one treatment fine lines fade, scars smooth, and skin radiates with a healthy, luminous glow.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive, rejuvenating treatment that triggers collagen production, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and improves skin texture. Our medical-grade treatment uses the SkinPen®, a safe and effective device that creates micro-channels in the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production. Microneedling spa services can be customized to target specific concerns and areas on the skin.
Results can be seen in as little as one treatment, but a series of treatments is recommended for optimal results.
Benefits of Microneedling:
- Stimulates collagen production
- Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
- Improves skin texture and tone
- Diminishes the appearance of acne scarring and hyperpigmentation
- Non-invasive and requires no downtime
When is Microneedling Effective?
Microneedling is effective for guests seeking to address a range of skin concerns. It's highly beneficial for those with fine lines, wrinkles, and signs of aging, as it stimulates collagen production, resulting in a more youthful complexion. Additionally, a microneedling facial is a potent solution for improving the appearance of scars, including those caused by acne or other skin traumas, by prompting the skin's natural healing processes. We recommend skin microneedling for hyperpigmentation issues and sun damage as well, because it works to encourage the turnover of damaged skin cells for a brighter and more even skin tone.
Skin needling treatment's ability to enhance the absorption of topical treatments also makes it an excellent complement to high-quality skincare products, further amplifying its effectiveness.
Who Is A Good Candidate For Microneedling?
The microneedling treatment is excellent for individuals with fine lines, wrinkles, or acne scars, as it effectively stimulates collagen production, resulting in a smoother and more luminous complexion. Additionally, those struggling with uneven skin tone, pigmentation issues, or sun damage can benefit greatly, as skin microneedling encourages the turnover of damaged skin cells, leading to a more radiant and even skin tone. It's also a fantastic option for individuals seeking a non-invasive procedure that offers noticeable results without extensive downtime.
At our med spa, we assess each individual's unique skin needs and goals to ensure they're an excellent candidate for microneedling, providing a tailored approach with a customized plan.
