Is Microneedling Right for Me?

Collagen,Induction,Therapy,Microneedling,For,The,Face,Of,A,EuropeanMicroneedling is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that can be used on any area of the body. Designed to create a series of tiny punctures in the skin, microneedling stimulates the production of collagen, helping to correct issues as diverse as:

  • Acne and Surgical Scars
  • Stretch Marks
  • Fine Lines
  • Deep Wrinkles
  • Enlarged Pores

Collagen helps to repair and restore the skin, creating a healthier, softer, and more youthfully vibrant appearance. Once production is stimulated, improvements may continue for up to five months. Repeat treatments can help to lengthen these results.

In some cases, skincare products are combined with microneedling to improve outcomes. For example, topical serums, peptides, ceramides, and more can be deeply integrated into the skin when applied during microneedling treatment.


We are pleased to offer microneedling with Réjuvapen at our East Greenwich office. Réjuvapen is an advanced microneedling device designed to improve patient comfort and outcomes. The only microneedling device with a HEPA filter to block airborne pathogens, the Réjuvapen has multiple settings, allowing for the complete personalization of each treatment. Equally important, Réjuvapen is designed for greater operator control and comfort, which are necessary for optimal precision.

The Réjuvapen device contains a unique beveled needling cartridge that improves the integration of topical skincare products used during treatment. This helps to make Réjuvapen among the most effective and reliable microneedling devices available today.

Réjuvapen can be used on the face, neck, décolletage, abdomen, back, arms, and legs. It is non-invasive, safe, and effective, and no recovery period is required. Most people feel confident and comfortable resuming normal activities right away, though some special skin care may be needed in the days following treatment. We will provide detailed instructions to help ensure your continued comfort.

Results from Réjuvapen may take one or more weeks to become noticeable. However, as collagen production increases, your results will continue to improve.

Am I a Good HydraFacial Candidate?

If you are interested in a non-surgical solution for your skin concerns, you may be a good candidate for HydraFacial. The procedure is entirely customizable, making it a good fit for many cosmetic concerns.

Some skin problems may impact your candidacy for HydraFacial. If you have an active rash or severe acne, you may need to delay treatment. During your initial consultation, we will carefully assess your skin, discuss all of your treatment options, and help you decide if HydraFacial is the best fit for you.

Many people notice results after just one treatment, but maintenance will be required to maintain smooth, even, and blemish-free skin. While daily at-home care will prove useful in helping to maintain results, coming in for treatment every four to six weeks will also be necessary to ensure the most pleasing and long-lasting outcomes.

Non-Surgical Options

HydraFacial is an effective and non-invasive treatment for many skin concerns. It is not the right solution for every need. The best way to learn if it is the right non-surgical solution for you is through a one-on-one consultation at our East Greenwich office.

We offer a range of non-invasive med spa services, including dermal fillers, laser skin resurfacing, microneedling, and peels. These can be used in combination with HydraFacial in some cases and used as an alternative in others. During your initial consultation, we can help you determine which of these options will best help you in reaching your goals.

Please call the Centre for Cosmetic + Reconstructive Surgery at 401-336-3770 to schedule your initial consultation today. We serve East Greenwich and all nearby areas of Rhode Island.

Facial Rejuvenation for the Holidays

The Holiday Season is right around the corner. If you are dissatisfied with the way aging, genetics, and environmental factors have changed your appearance, now is a great time to start looking into the non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments that can help to produce a softer and more youthful appearance.

While it may seem early, acting now can help to ensure the most noticeable results in time for the Holidays. Many non-surgical options offer near-instant results, but will continue to improve skin texture and appearance for several weeks. If you are considering facial rejuvenation, use the contact form on this page or give us a call to schedule a consultation and learn more.

Injectables and Fillers

One of the safest and most reliable ways to achieve a more youthful appearance is with injectables and fillers. At the Centre for Aesthetic + Reconstructive Surgery, we are pleased to offer a selection of dermal fillers from the Restylane®, Juvéderm®, and Sculptra® families to address facial sagging, hollowness, lines and wrinkles, lip asymmetry, and more. Many of these products produce swift results that can continue for several months without a touch-up.

We also offer BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport®, two incredibly popular options that can address issues such as frown lines, crow’s feet, and skin laxity to help restore a smooth and pleasing appearance. These injectables work immediately and can continue to produce results for three to four months, making them perfect for reliable facial rejuvenation before the Holiday Season.

Several Other Options

While it’s no longer summertime, using sunscreen during the cooler months is still important. UVA and UVB rays can cause premature aging, sun spots, and even dry skin. Unprotected skin is also at heightened risk for developing skin cancer.

There are different types of sunscreen, each working better for different individuals and needs. We would be happy to help you determine which will be best for your skin during your next visit to our office.

Four women caress their face after HydraFacial MD skin rejuvenation treatment.

Millions of Americans are thinking over their resolutions and goals for the New Year. While many will vow to floss more often, lose weight, or focus on their career, others will look to cosmetic improvements to rejuvenate their appearance. The Centre for Aesthetic + Reconstructive Surgery offers the HydraFacial MD, which is a new skin treatment designed to maximize your youthful results.

Winter can be rough on your skin, causing dryness, redness, and itchiness. The holiday season is typically when men and women drink more alcoholic beverages than usual, which impacts your skin’s appearance. The filling foods served at Christmas time can influence your skin as well. Smoking and a lot of time in the sun can take a significant toll on your complexion too. These factors and more make winter an excellent time to restore a luminous, youthful appearance. The HydraFacial MD at our Medical Spa in East Greenwich is particularly beneficial because it exfoliates, nourishes, and restores moisture to the skin. 

What is the HydraFacial? 

HydraFacial MD is a non-invasive treatment for skin rejuvenation, which was named “Best In-Office Facial Treatment” by New Beauty in 2015. It has been featured in national media outlets, including ABC and InStyle, and has even been seen on The Real Housewives. HydraFacial is a five-step treatment that does not require any downtime or surgery. The treatment can address a variety of skin concerns, including lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and oily, acne-prone skin. 

By combining various skin treatments, HydraFacial can provide significant improvement and natural-looking results after just one session without surgery or recovery time. Your HydraFacial with our medical aesthetician in Rhode Island will involve these phases: 

  1. Dead skin cells and the dull outer layer of skin is removed with Vortex-Exfoliation™. 
  2. The Vortex-Peel™ treats the newly-revealed healthy layer of skin to provide a radiant glow without the downtime needed after a typical chemical peel. 
  3. Pores are cleansed, and clogged pores are addressed with Vortex-Extraction™. 
  4. The fresh and clean facial skin is nourished with Vortex-Fusion™ and protects your skin from the elements. 
  5. Skin rejuvenation is continued at home with a skincare regimen designed to complement the HydraFacial.  

You can view before and after photos on our HydraFacial page to see how this skin treatment can reveal a “New You” in the New Year. HydraFacial is an excellent option for patients who want to look young for their age and treat common skin concerns without the need for surgery. Adults who struggle with poor skin texture, laxity, and moderate-to-severe facial lines and wrinkles can benefit from HydraFacial at our East Greenwich location with long-lasting skin improvement after one session.
