Microneedling and Collagen Induction Therapy

Rejuvenate Your Skin and Regrow Your Hair in Newton and the Boston Area

Do you want smoother, more youthful-looking skin, but feel that you are reluctant to go through painful or risky procedures? Microneedling at the Boston area’s Dr. Happe Medical Aesthetics may be the solution for you. The cosmetic treatment can address a range of conditions, including skin damage and signs of aging.

Microneedling also pairs very well with collagen induction therapy, which uses growth factors from your own blood. This treatment enhances the skin-rejuvenating effects of microneedling. Collagen induction therapy can also be used on its own, especially as a strategy for hair restoration. Newton’s Dr. Holly Happe works with each patient to select the ideal treatment based on unique goals.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a procedure that uses multiple tiny needles to create microscopic holes in the skin, stimulating collagen and elastin production. Over time, you will notice an improvement in your skin’s texture. This is because collagen provides firmness, while elastin gives it a youthful ability to stay smooth after being pulled out of shape.

The revitalization triggered by microneedling encourages the skin to literally heal itself as it repairs the tiny wounds from the treatment. Because of this, it is ideal for more than just skin tightening. For example, microneedling can be used as a scar treatment—especially effective for reducing the appearance of acne scars. It can also even out pigmentation irregularities and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. And microneedling can cause large pores to appear smaller and address crepe-like skin beneath the eyes and on the décolletage.

Some patients see improvement after one treatment. Most, however, would benefit from a series of treatments. For best results, we often recommend a series of three monthly sessions.

What is collagen induction therapy?

An isolated restorative liquid component of blood is prepared by collecting blood from a patient, then processing it to concentrate its healing platelets. These platelets are then injected back into the areas to be revitalized. The high concentration of powerful platelets—the major clotting element in your blood—encourages healing and skin rejuvenation.

Collagen induction therapy is also an effective hair restoration treatment. It bathes weakened or dormant hair follicles with powerful, concentrated platelets. This stimulates the follicles to begin producing hair properly.

How can microneedling and collagen induction therapy be combined?

Collagen induction therapy can promote enhanced rejuvenation after a microneedling session. Similarly, microneedling is sometimes used to stimulate the scalp where collagen induction therapy is being used for hair restoration.

What is the newton microneedling or collagen induction therapy experience?

Since microneedling involves the creation of numerous tiny channels in the skin—typically the face, neck, or décolletage—Dr. Holly Happe approaches the treatment from the outset with pain minimization in mind. Her experience as a board-certified anesthesiologist allows her to make patient comfort a priority, without sacrificing results.

*Individual patient results may vary

The same goes for collagen induction therapy, which involves both collecting blood and injecting the resulting plasma. Dr. Happe collaborates with her patients to ensure they understand what to expect from the treatment itself, as well as the results. She will cover all of this—and more—during an initial consultation. This is also when you can ask questions about the treatment and other options.

No matter which treatment you get, know that results take time. Generating new collagen and elastin is a gradual process. So is rejuvenating hair follicles. The effects will become increasingly visible as weeks and months pass after a treatment session.

What complements a microneedling or collagen induction therapy treatment?

For deeper creases and age-related contour changes that microneedling does not target, Dr. Happe uses dermal fillers, including Juvederm® and Bellafill®. Patients who want more skin rejuvenation options can consider any of a number of chemical peels. Dr. Happe will suggest the most appropriate treatment, and the choice is up to you!
