Fix Summer Sun Damage with Microneedling in Boston, MA

Spending days lounging at the pool or at a beach-side cabana was a lot of fun, but the summer sun does a lot of damage to the skin. Rejuvenate and enhance your skin with microneedling treatments. This minimally invasive procedure can help you to dial down the sun damage and turn up the radiance.

Microneedling Basics

Microneedling is exactly what it sounds like – it’s using micro-needles to puncture small holes into the skin. This method triggers the body’s natural healing process to produce more collagen and repair flaws in the skin. Microneedling results in patients seeing a significant reduction in fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, and uneven skin texture. Suite Six Medical Aesthetics uses a combination of microneedling and either stem cells, dermal fillers or platelet-rich plasma to produce maximum rejuvenation results.

During Your Treatment

Before your treatment begins, Dr. Ballenas will apply a numbing cream to your skin which will help with any discomfort you might feel when the treatment begins. Your microneedling treatment is done in-office and takes no more than an hour to complete. During this time, Dr. Ballenas will press the microneedling device onto the face or neck area to create small holes in the skin. If you choose to have any stem cell, dermal filler, or platelet-rich plasma boosters, those will be injected just under the surface of the skin at the same time. The creation of these small punctures, or microchannels, helps the skin to better absorb any product that may be used during or after your procedure.

After Your Treatment

You may feel some redness, tenderness, and swelling immediately after your procedure, but this typically fades on its own after a few days. You may be able to see your results after just one treatment, however, we recommend multiple treatments to help you achieve your ultimate results. You may not notice anything right away, but don’t worry. When the collagen starts to produce after a few days of healing, you’ll be able to notice more plump, smooth and radiant skin. Most patients notice results within a few weeks of their initial treatment, with the best results occurring about a month or two after your treatment. The best part is there’s no downtime for the procedure. Simply get your microneedling done in the morning and you’ll be ready for a night out the same day.

The Cost

The cost of your microneedling treatment is going to be as personalized to you as the actual treatment is. There are a lot of different factors that go into your microneedling treatment, like boosters and add-ons, so the cost of your treatment is going to widely vary.
