Improve the tone and tightness of your skin’s appearance with us.
As we get older our skin naturally begins to sag and lose its elasticity. This is something that will happen to all of us at some point; however, this doesn’t mean that you just have to accept that this is the way it is. In fact, our Brookline, MA, dermatologist Dr. Alan Rockoff offers two non-invasive skin tightening procedures that could improve your appearance and make you look younger.
Rejuvapen Micro Needling
Rejuvapen is a small handheld device containing several micro-needles that when they pierce the skin stimulates the body’s natural healing response. As a result, this procedure is great for those dealing with acne scarring, as the needles can breakup the scars and create smoother skin. It can also be used for other imperfections as well such as age spots, lines, and wrinkles.
However, since it stimulates the production of collagen this also means that it has the ability to lift loose or sagging skin to improve firmness and tightness for a younger appearance. It will take time for the body to begin producing collagen and elastin, so it will take a few weeks after treatment to see results. In fact, it can take up to 3 or 4 months to achieve the full results.
Rejuvapen is most often used on the face, but it can also be used on other parts of the body such as the arms, chest or neck. It is also compatible with all skin types.
Instead of using very small needles like Rejuvapen, Pelleve uses radiofrequency waves to heat up the layers of the skin to stimulate collagen to tighten and firm skin. It will also promote the development of new collagen, so you will continue to see results for weeks after treatment. You may be an ideal candidate for Pelleve if you are looking to treat:
- Forehead lines
- Crow’s feet
- Loose skin
- Wrinkles and creases around the nose and mouth
There is absolutely no downtime associated with this treatment and it is non-invasive, meaning that no needles or incisions are necessary. Anywhere from 3-5 treatments are often recommend in order to promote optimal collagen rebuilding, but this is something that our Brookline, MA, skin doctor will discuss with you during your consultation. After all, our treatments are customized to meet your needs.
