what is Microneedling?
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 Center Facial Aesthetics to discover more about the benefits of microneedling and how to customize the treatment for your needs and goals.

"I had the most amazing experience with dr derosa for my rhinoplasty. She is the nicest, most caring doctor I have ever met! Everything was seamless, no issues and the surgery went great. My nose fits my face perfectly and I still look just like me! I am only a month out and love my results. I cannot recommend her enough!"- C.B. / Google / May 14, 2021
"When I was 18 years old I broke my nose. I never did anything about it at the time Because it never really look that bad. As I got older it started looking worse to me my bridge looked really flat and it seem like the bones were wider possibly just the aging process. When I really noticed was in pictures and it really bothered me and I was constantly trying to contour my nose to make it look narrow. Most people didn't even notice but it really bothered me. I finally decided to get an opinion on what it would entail to fix it. I went to three different plastic surgeons. I finally decided on Jaime DeRosa at the Derosa clinic in Boston. Right away after consulting with her I knew she was the right surgeon. She has such an amazing personality and she is a double certified facial plastic surgeon. I just knew I was in good hands. I had the procedure done yesterday and I am feeling great today I was even able to walk the dogs early this morning at 6:30 AM. Her husband is the anesthesiologist and they both made me feel so relaxed and comfortable before and after the procedure. I couldn't have asked for a better pair!"- NC / Other / Apr 02, 2021
"As a mom of 3 little kids, my face was starting to look tired and I was noticing wrinkles starting to appear. After a consultation with Nicole, I decided the IPL laser was the best choice for me. I could not be happier with my results! My face looks years younger and my skin tone is much more even. Nicole and Steven were both extremely knowledgeable and realistic, which I appreciated. Will absolutely be recommending this office to all of my friends!"- D.H. / Google / Jan 19, 2021
what does microneedling do?
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.
how is microneedling performed?
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.
when will i see results from microneedling?
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.
