If over-the-counter skin treatments are no longer proving effective, but you don't want surgical procedures, try minimally invasive procedures for skin rejuvenation, such as microneedling. Board-certified internal medicine physician Dr. Rosy Sandhu is happy to perform microneedling (collagen induction therapy) at her offices in Somerville, Lynnfield, and Winchester, MA.
Microneedling with the ReJuvaPen uses multiple fine needles to create micro-injuries in the skin. The micro-injuries prompt the natural production of elastin and collagen, two nutrients that enhance the overall health and appearance of your complexion. Often performed with other treatments, such as vitamin serums, a DSE rejuvenation mask, or platelet-rich plasma (PRP), microneedling may help minimize scars, pores, and stretch marks. Make an appointment for a consultation at Neem Medical Spa to discover more about the results of microneedling and how to personalize your procedure for your skin concerns and goals.
Ask about our time machine
What if we told you we could make you look five years younger? It may sound too good to be true, but we swear we’re not lying. With 4 – 6 of our "Time Machine" treatments (microneedling and laser facials), you can rapidly remove years of aging from your skin. Laser facials, also known as laser skin resurfacing, reduce wrinkles and skin irregularities, such as blemishes or acne scars. It kills the bacteria that causes acne by heating up the deepest layer of skin. The energy from the laser resurfaces your skin for a smoother, fresher complexion.
When microneedling and laser facials are combined, antioxidants are pushed deeper into the skin, causing collagen to regenerate faster and ultimately giving more visible results than doing either procedure alone. This is the ideal treatment for those who have acne scars, uneven skin texture, stretch marks, fine lines, and wrinkles, or large pores.
It's possible you could be a candidate for microneedling treatments if you experience light or mild complexion problems, like a decrease in firmness or uneven texture. Collagen induction therapy may also improve the look of pores, scars, and stretch marks. You need to be willing to have patience before seeing benefits from microneedling. It takes time for the elastin and collagen (a month or longer) to have an impact on your complexion. However, you will see results that look natural and have healthier, stronger skin.
Collagen induction therapy with microneedling is implemented in one of our office procedure rooms in about 30 – 60 minutes. Our patients typically experience little or no pain and discomfort during a microneedling treatment. If you are concerned about pain, please let Dr. Sandhu know. The areas of skin being addressed will be cleaned before the handpiece is evenly passed over. Once the microneedling is done, treatments like platelet-rich plasma (PRP), a DSE mask, or special serums with a vitamin infusion may be applied. With microneedling, the nutrients can penetrate deeper into the skin. A moisturizer selected for your skin type will be massaged in along with sun protection because the treated skin will be more sensitive after the procedure.
What to Expect
Following the procedure, you might develop light redness and swelling for a day. However, this should resolve on its own. It can take around 1 – 2 months as the elastin and collagen supply increases until you notice significant changes in the appearance and health of your treated skin. You should schedule 4 – 6 follow-up sessions that are performed every 4 – 6 weeks for the best outcomes and long-term skin benefits.
