Microneedling is a safe, relatively comfortable treatment to improve the appearance of the skin. Rather than chemicals, heat, or toxins, it works with the body’s natural healing response to micro-injuries. The microneedling procedure uses tiny needles to create tiny punctures, stimulating the skin to repair itself by producing new collagen and elastin.

Montilla Plastic Surgery serves patients who live in the Greater Boston Area and Worcester areas, as well as out-of-town visitors who are interested in the facility's services. The medical staff offers many different cosmetic procedures, including microneedling.

Skin Conditions That Can Be Treated with Microneedling

Also known as collagen induction therapy, microneedling in Boston is becoming an increasingly popular treatment. There is no downtime with this procedure. It stimulates production of collagen and elastin, helps tighten and thicken the skin, releases growth factors to promote hair growth, and boosts the absorption and efficacy of topical products, including acne treatments.

Microneedling has been used effectively to treat a range of cosmetic skin issues, including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Aging skin
  • Scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Age spots
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Acne
  • Enlarged pores
  • Rosacea
  • Hair loss

Microneedling With PRP

Microneedling can sometimes be combined with a treatment called PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy. PRP is plasma from the blood that contains a high concentration of platelets, which help blood clot and can assist with the body’s healing process. PRP also contains growth factors and cytokines, which help skin tissue heal itself. During microneedling with PRP, PRP from your own blood is applied to the skin immediately after microneedling. This can speed up the skin’s healing process and enhance the results of the microneedling treatment.

SkinPen for Microneedling

At Montilla Plastic Surgery, we use a versatile microneedling device called SkinPen. Its surgical-grade stainless steel micro needles help our expert aestheticians make a series of micro-injuries on the surface of the skin in order to trigger the body’s natural process of healing, and stimulate the production of healthy collagen and elastin.

SkinPen can be used to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, to reduce the appearance of acne and other scars, to correct the signs of sun damage and to reduce the most common signs of visual aging. And it can treat most areas of the body that are affected by these conditions, including the face, the neck and decolletage, the arms, legs, chest, abs and back.

Your treatment with SkinPen will be virtually pain-free, and you’ll feel little more than a slight buzzing sensation across the skin. A topical numbing agent makes for little to no pain or discomfort. SkinPen is the only device of its type made within the United States and the first-ever such device to receive FDA clearance for treating acne scars.

Microneedling FAQ's

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is also referred to as collagen induction therapy. It is a minimally invasive technique that involves the use of a device that has several small needles. The device is used to puncture the skin in a targeted area in an attempt to help rejuvenate the skin. The puncture wounds provide a controlled wound that can be effectively treated. The puncture wounds are placed in such a way that small openings are created in an attempt to encourage the body to fill them by producing additional sources of elastin and collagen. Because of the new formation of collagen, the skin becomes firmer and more toned than before.

Does Microneedling Cause Side Effects?

Microneedling is minimally invasive due to the fact that many small needles are used to create the puncture wounds that are supposed to elicit the healing response. Other than the risk of infection, other side effects include mild inflammation and swelling. Tenderness to the touch may be present near the treatment area for several days after the procedure. The area may also be slightly discolored for the first few days after the initial treatment. This may be present until the small wounds begin to heal and the collagen begins to fill in the small open areas left by the needles.

What are the Benefits of Microneedling?

Microneedling offers excellent benefits. Once the controlled wound is present, the stimulation of collagen and elastin will begin to firm and tone the skin, improving both the texture and color. This can also work to reduce the appearance of various types of scars, the size of pores, stretch marks, and many other types of skin imperfections. The device used in the microneedling procedure is extremely precise and can be used rather quickly, minimizing the amount of time it takes to perform the procedure. Even though a wound is created in the skin, the amount of time spent in recovery is minimal.
