Rejuvapen micro needling is a dermatological treatment for rejuvenating facial skin and creating a more youthful appearance. Micro-rejuvapen micro-needlingneedling accomplishes this by promoting the skin to initiate self-repair by producing additional collagen. This additional collagen helps the skin repair itself. The result is smoother skin that appears lifted and more youthful. At The Rockoff Dermatology Center, Dr. Alan Rockoff and Dr. Katherine Fening are your Andover and Brookline, MA dermatologists for Rejuvapen micro-needling treatments.

What is Micro-Needling?

Rejuvapen micro needling is also referred to as collagen induction therapy. The treatment prompts the skin to begin producing more collagen. Collagen is naturally produced in young, healthy skin. As we age, the skin produces less collagen. The reduction in collagen leads to the development of fine lines, wrinkles, and even sagging. By increasing the amount of collagen the skin produces, the skin will appear lifted, smoother, and more youthful. Fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging diminish with the increase in collagen production.

The way Rejuvapen micro needling causes the skin to begin producing more collagen is through the use of microneedles. The needles are extremely fine and are used to make tiny perforations or punctures in the top layer of the skin. These tiny punctures alert the skin that it has been injured or damaged. As a result, the skin responds by producing collagen to rejuvenate itself. In other words, micro needling prompts the skin to begin its own natural method of skin renewal. Your Andover and Brookline dermatologist can help you decide if micro needling is right for you.

Dermal fillers are injectable treatments strategically administered in certain areas of the face to smooth lines and wrinkles and restore a dermal fillersmore youthful appearance. In addition to smoothing the lines and wrinkles that age your appearance, dermal fillers deliver several other benefits, as well. For instance, they can give you a more rested appearance. At The Rockoff Dermatology Center, Dr. Alan Rockoff and Dr. Katherine Fening are your Andover and Brookline, MA dermatologists for dermal fillers.

What are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers can help you regain a more youthful appearance by smoothing lines and wrinkles on the face. Lines and wrinkles develop with age as the natural collagen levels in skin begins diminishing. The loss of collagen means the skin loses elasticity. Collagen loss leads to the formation of lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin, all of which make you look older. Dermal fillers help restore your skin’s natural collagen levels, smooth lines and wrinkles, and give you a younger appearance.

Dermal fillers are typically injected into the lips, cheeks, and temples, as well as into the lines around the mouth, nose, and eyes. Available dermal filler brands include Juvederm, Restylane, Voluma, Restylane Silk, and Perlane. Whichever dermal filler you choose, the results can be seen immediately after treatment. Your Andover and Brookline dermatologist can help you decide whether dermal fillers are right for you, as well as which particular dermal filler to choose.

Treatment

Depending on the dermal filler you select for treatment and the areas to be treated, a treatment session can be as quick as 15 minutes, but can last up to 45 minutes. Before injecting the dermal filler, the skin if gently cleansed first. Using a fine needle, the dermal fillers are then injected into the target areas. The injection only produces little to no discomfort for most people, but a topical anesthetic can be used for potential discomfort, if needed. Following treatment, results will be visible immediately. Your skin will be smoother and you will look younger.

Dermal fillers are a non-invasive method for giving you a more youthful appearance. To learn more about how dermal fillers can help you, schedule an appointment with Dr. Rockoff or Dr. Fening by calling The Rockoff Dermatology Center at (978) 475-9230 for the Andover office or (617) 731-2390 for the Brookline office.
