We offer a wide range of non-surgical facelift and skin rejuvenation programs in our Burlington, Massachusetts office. They are both office and home-based depending on the complexity and need for medical supervision during the treatment.

Office Treatments

These may be used alone, in combination or in series.

Microdermabrasion

  • Targets outermost layer of skin (Keratin).
  • Thins, smoothes and dissipates blocked follicles.
  • Produces a smoother appearance, dislodges debris and allows better penetration of topical treatments.
  • There is no patient downtime with this treatment.

Mild to Moderate Chemical Peels
(Beta lift and AlphaHydroxies)

  • Targets the upper level of the epidermis and openings of the follicles (works at a slightly deeper level than Microdermabrasion).
  • Removes aging, sun damaged and acne damaged cells in the epidermis.
  • Results in tighter, healthier (glowing) skin.
  • There is no patient downtime with this treatment.

EpiFacial(Photofacial) Photo-rejuvenation

  • Targets the skins’ collagen layer.
  • Softens scarred collagen allowing it to rise up and fill-in depressions on the skins’ surface.
  • Stimulates the production of new collagen that stretches and helps to eliminate wrinkled skin.
  • Reduces redness by heat-sealing damaged capillaries.
  • Reduces blotchiness and discoloration by breaking up pigmentation.

Restylane®
Restylane® is the first and only dermal filler in the U.S. composed of NASHA® gel, Non-Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid. It’s proven to give long-lasting correction of moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds.

  • Documented results that last six months, or even longer.
  • Excellent safety profile.
  • Over one million treatments worldwide.
  • No allergy testing required.
  • A simple, convenient procedure.
  • There is no patient downtime with this treatment.

Botox
(a muscle relaxant)

  • Most effective in treating deep wrinkles at the top of the nose (collagen cannot be used here) and many, but not all, forehead wrinkles.
  • Treatment is particularly necessary when collagen does not provide long-lasting results (approximately six to eight months)
  • This treatment only relaxes muscles for limited period of time, and follow-up treatments are necessary. As with collagen treatments, the interval between treatments varies among individuals.
  • No patient pretest is required.
  • There is no patient downtime with this treatment.

Home-based Treatments

AlphaHydroxy Acid
(Glycolic acid)

  • Targets the loose, rough aged and sun-damaged outer (keratin) skin layer. Can be likened to a “home Microdermabrasion” treatment.
  • Most effective strength for this treatment is a solution of 20%. Most “over the counter” products contain a concentration of less than 10% — this strength is usually not very effective.
  • Some brief stinging is normal when these products are first applied.
  • This treatment is normally applied in the morning.
  • There is no patient downtime with this treatment.

Topical Vitamin-C
(available as a gel, solution or cream)

  • Stimulates collagen production. It is important to be faithful and persistent with this treatment — it may take as long as six to eight months before results are visible.
  • Our topical vitamin-c treatments are delivered in a special “vehicle” allowing them to pass through the epidermis and into the collagen layer. Most other topical vitamin-c treatments are less effective as they never reach the collagen layer.
  • This treatment also functions as an antioxidant neutralizing destructive, sun induced compounds know as “free-radicals.”
  • There is no patient downtime with this treatment.

Afirm
(Retinol in the Retin-A family)

  • Targets the cellular epidermis and corrects sun-damaged, pre-cancerous cells.
  • Available in three strengths depending on individual skin sensitivity.
  • This treatment is always applied just before going to bed.
  • Treatment can be alternated nightly with topical vitamin-c.
  • There is no patient downtime with this treatment.
