If you are experiencing discoloration, uneven skin tone, the aftermath of acne breakouts, signs of aging, or environmental damage, we can help you restore damaged skin using a variety of state-of-the-art laser and medical grade treatments.

Every patient has different patterns of facial aging and needs. Our professional staff will be happy to meet with you and discuss treatment plan options. Please call to schedule a consultation.

Fraxel Laser Treatments

Fraxel re:pair

Fraxel re:pair laser treatments provide fractional deep dermal ablation (FDDATM) using innovative laser technology. The effects are similar to a succession of traditional laser treatments, but with less risk. It is ideal for resurfacing soft tissues, improving pigmentation, eliminating redness and broken blood vessels, and smoothing wrinkles or crow’s feet around the eyes. Fraxel re:pair has been approved by the FDA to treat a variety of cosmetic conditions. South Shore Skin Center is the only provider in the area with this innovative laser technology.

Fraxel re:store

Fraxel re:store laser treatments are designed to target aging and damaged skin, by stimulating the body’s natural production of new collagen and skin cells. Fraxel re:store laser treatments are best for general resurfacing on the face, neck, chest and hands. We have seen significant results in cases of acne, scarring, age and brown spots, melasma, pigmentation and fine wrinkles. Healing time is quick. It is safe for all skin types and has been approved by the FDA for treating a variety of cosmetic conditions.

Collagen Induction Therapy

COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY (CIT)

Collagen Induction Therapy, sometimes called “microneedling,” is a treatment that improves the appearance of age-related fine lines and wrinkles as well as scars such as those resulting from acne. The procedure can be used on the face, except within the orbital rim, and elsewhere on the body.

As we age and battle skin conditions, the natural architecture of our skin deteriorates. Collagen Induction Therapy is a great way to address this at the cellular level. The treatment comfortably creates thousands of micro-injuries in the skin to trigger the body’s natural wound healing process. This results in skin remodeling, including the formation of collagen and elastin, the two proteins predominantly responsible for the structure of the skin. The outcome is beautiful, youthful looking skin.

Although this is a comparatively new procedure, it has already gained great popularity. South Shore Skin Center uses the only FDA-approved state-of-the-art device currently available called SkinPen® for this treatment which is minimally-invasive, and requires little downtime. We also feature and recommend the addition of Epidermal Growth Factor during the CIT treatments to further stimulate the production of collagen. When combined with microneedling, the results can be quite remarkable.
