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.

"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
"Beyond pleased with Dr. DeRosa and her team! From the initial consultation to the surgery and beyond. My daughter had otoplasty and the whole it was a very easy experience and she is very pleased with the outcome. Dr. DeRosa was able to answer all my and my daughter’s questions thoroughly and kept her at ease the whole time. It is so convenient that they are able to do the surgery right in the office without needing to go to a hospital, especially now with the hospitals so crowded.The whole staff is terrific, there were no wait times for appointments, everything was done efficiently, but we never felt rushed.If you are looking to have your skin feel rejuvenated I have also been to the clinic for a facial and highly recommend the experience. Both my daughter and I highly recommend Dr. DeRosa and the whole staff at the DeRosa Clinic."- M.O. / Yelp / Jan 18, 2021
"I am here to preach the gospel of the DeRosa Clinic.My story: I moved to Boston for graduate school, and I asked my esteemed SF-based doctor for a recommendation in the Boston area, and he directed me to Dr. DeRosa. I now live in Washington, DC, and I trust Dr. DeRosa so much that I called her office for dermatologist contacts in DC. How I wish I still lived in Boston so I could continue seeing Dr. DeRosa!My experience: Walking into the DeRosa clinic was like getting a much welcome dose of sunshine. The women staffing the front desk were always extremely warm and welcoming. Being so far from home, I felt well attended to and well taken care of. As I write this, I miss them so much!Dr. DeRosa was beyond fantastic. She not only addressed every concern of mine, no matter how trivial (eg, the tiniest skin irritation), but she did so with aplomb, grace, and vivacity. And I mean what I say. Dr. DeRosa was not only an extremely skilled doctor, but she was also unbelievably charismatic and caring. I left her offices, not only with my health concerns addressed, but with Soul Cycle class recommendations and networking tips!On-site, Dr. DeRosa also has the most skilled aesthetician. I literally would go from Dr. DeRosa’s office, where she would pinpoint a skin issue, to the room next door, where an aesthetician would perform a rejuvenating facial. I would look at my skin the next day, and it would look brand-spanking new. I don’t think anyone can compete with that.I now live in Washington, DC for work, and I must confess, I miss Dr. DeRosa, her staff, and the office IMMENSELY. For those of you who are close enough to be able to have De. DeRosa as your doctor, you couldn’t be more lucky!"- A.P. / Yelp / Jan 08, 2021
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.
