- These skin irregularities include wrinkles, acne scarring, sun damage, large pores, and reduced elasticity in your skin (which can cause sagging or drooping). Stanford educated and Beverly Hills trained Chelmsford plastic surgeon Dave Lee, MD, performs both cosmetic and reconstructive surgery.

WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING?
Also known as collagen induction therapy, dermarolling, or skin needling, microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that uses tiny needles to repeatedly prick your skin in chosen target areas.
These micro-wounds then heal, and in the process, they stimulate the growth of collagen and elastin. This tightens your skin and creates a more youthful appearance. While the idea of willingly inserting several tiny needles into your skin may sound unappealing, the punctures are actually quite shallow and do not cause scarring. There is also very minimal discomfort.
Types of Microneedling
There are three types of microneedling Chelmsford patients can receive, depending on the part of your body you’d like treatment and the extent of the results you’re looking for.
This technique is the first one developed. It simply inserts tiny needles in and out of your skin, creating micro-injuries. As they heal, they promote the production of collagen and elastin, given their location on the surface of your skin.
During this technique, Dr. Lee uses specially insulated needles that have been designed to send high-intensity radiofrequency (RF) into your tissues. The RF warms the deeper tissue below your skin, encouraging collagen growth and tissue tightening as it heals. This also addresses your skin texture and elasticity at the same time.
BENEFITS OF MICRONEEDLING
At PURE Cosmetic in Chelmsford microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that you can have done to any part of your body. This includes your face to treat the signs of aging, to your body to reduce the prominence of a scar, or even to your scalp to boost hair growth. Microneedling stimulates your body to produce more glycosaminoglycans, collagen, and elastin, all of which are essential for youthful skin. This treatment improves the skin’s hydration, thickness, and tightness. At times, you may require more intensive treatments to help with your skincare needs.

Not really. However, your skin can feel tender and irritated after treatment or have mild redness. Dr. Lee will apply numbing cream or have you take mild pain relievers to reduce discomfort during treatment.
Microneedling treatments may provide the best results with more than one session. As a result, the price varies depending on how many sessions you end up having. We recommend at least 3 treatments, each spaced 4 weeks apart. Maintenance treatments can then be done every 6 months. Because microneedling is normally an elective cosmetic procedure, you will need to cover the costs out of pocket. There are financing and payment plans available if you need them.
If you would like to receive treatments for microneedling in Chelmsford and the surrounding areas, you will need to book a consultation with Dr. Lee so he can examine you to confirm your eligibility.
