If over-the-counter skin care products aren't proving effective, but you aren't ready for surgical procedures, learn more about minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatments, like SkinPen or Collagen P.I.N. microneedling. We are pleased to perform microneedling (collagen induction therapy) at our office in Boston, MA. Microneedling uses multiple fine-gauge needles to safely and effectively create micro-injuries in the skin. The micro-injuries prompt the natural production of collagen and elastin, two nutrients that enhance the appearance and health of your complexion. Often combined with other skin treatments, like serums or PRP (platelet-rich plasma), microneedling may help minimize pores, scars, and stretch marks. Make an appointment for a consultation at DeRosa Clinic Facial Aesthetics to discover more about the benefits of microneedling and how to customize the treatment for your needs and goals.

"My experience at DeRosa clinic was excellent, the staff was very accommodating and caring. I consider my face surgery to be life changing. Dr DeRosa is by far one of the best caring professional surgeons I came across. It a great feeling to be able to trust your face knowing that the results will be amazing. And my results are speak for themselves, people think I am 15 years younger:)"- A.L. / Google / Mar 11, 2020
"After a horrific experience from a previous plastic surgery, I cannot say enough about how different this experience was. To have a doctor explain the procedure, what would be necessary to correct the issues from the previous surgery, as well as her ability to fix what the previous doctor had done (which left me disfigured and insecure in my appearance) is something I cannot put into words. Her energy and upbeat attitude are so important to the experience. You leave feeling that you are more than just a patient, which translates to a better recovery and overall experience. I am so grateful to have found Dr. DeRosa."- K.G. / Google / Mar 10, 2020
"I went today for a consultation with Doc Derosa and was pleasantly surprised. Doctor Derosa talked me through what I wanted and suggested that I go a less invasive route on account of my skin and how it would take the treatment I originally wanted. She could not have been any more honest or friendly!! I am going back in two weeks to see the esthetician :o) I didn't catch the lady at the front desk's name, but she was also super friendly and professional!!"- A.B. / Yelp / Mar 05, 2020
"DeRosa is by far the best place in Boston to get a facial in my experience. The space on Newbury is clean and relaxing, and everyone is incredibly welcoming. Steven's attention to detail and knowledge of skincare is unmatched - the 60 minute facial is worth every penny. I have and will continue to recommend him to all of my friends!"- M.C. / Google / Mar 03, 2020
Is Microneedling for you?
You could benefit from SkinPen or Collagen P.I.N. microneedling treatments if you have light or moderate complexion problems, like rough skin texture or low elasticity. Collagen induction therapy procedures may also reduce the appearance of scars, pores, and stretch marks. Patients will need to wait before seeing benefits from the microneedling treatment because the collagen and elastin will need time to affect the complexion. However, you will have natural-looking results and gain healthier and stronger skin.
Collagen induction therapy with microneedling is completed in a treatment room in about 30 – 60 minutes with topical numbing cream if requested, but most patients report little or no discomfort. The skin being treated is cleansed before the treatment. Next, the microneedling handpiece is passed evenly over the skin. After the microneedling is performed, a topical treatment, like PRP (platelet-rich plasma), Tensage growth factor serum, Protein Rich Retinol and/or a Vitamin infusion, may be applied so the nutrients can penetrate deeper into the skin. Finally, our staff will massage a moisturizer with sunscreen onto the face because the treated skin will be sensitive following the treatment.
What to Expect
After your treatment, you may develop mild redness or swelling for about a day; however, this should subside quickly on its own. It can take around 1 – 2 months as the collagen and elastin supply increases before you see significant improvements in the appearance and health of your complexion. You should plan to get at least 3 treatments every 4 – 6 weeks for the best results, as well as yearly treatments after the series is complete, in order to see long-lasting skin benefits.
