North Shore Skin Rejuvenation
Non-Invasive Services to Help You Look Younger
If you are looking for non-invasive ways to improve the appearance and feel of your skin, New Horizons Medical Spa offers a variety of skin rejuvenation therapies:
MicroPen Micro-Needling & PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma)
Micro-Needling (also called Collagen Induction Therapy) can be used for the successful treatment of a variety of indications including acne scars, stretch marks, hyper-pigmentation, large pores, fine wrinkles, and (when combined with platelet-rich plasma) hair restoration. The results are overall younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging.*
Micro-Needling Helps Treat:
- Fine lines & wrinkles
- Uneven texture, tone & color
- Stretch Marks
- Acne Scars
- Traumatic and surgical scars
- Photo aging
- Mild to moderate skin laxity
SkinPen by Bellus Medical is the first FDA-cleared microneedling device. It causes controlled micro-injuries that stimulate your body’s natural wound healing process, while minimizing cellular damage. The result is effective remodeling of scar tissue, while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.
There are three phases to the wound-repair process:
- Phase I: Inflammation. Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to disinfect the wounds, remove debris, increase blood flow and begin to create new tissue.
- Phase II: Proliferation. The wound is rebuilt with new granulation cells, which are part of the extracellular matrix. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops.
- Phase III: Remodeling. The wound is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels.
Best of all, SkinPen works. Ninety percent of subjects in the clinical trial would recommend the procedure to family and friends.
No laser heat is introduced, so unlike fractional laser treatments, IPL, and laser resurfacing, Micro-Needling is safe for all skin tones and there is minimal downtime, minimal discomfort, and an almost immediate outcome.*
This treatment provides dramatic results in wrinkle and fine line reduction, pore size reduction, scar and acne scar, pigmentation and stretch mark reduction. Some patients will see visible results after just one treatment, however most will need several treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart, dependent on the condition to be treated and the desired outcome.*
When Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is infused with the MicroPen, your procedure is taken to a whole new level! PRP is cutting edge therapy in the field of cosmetic enhancements. Although the procedure is relatively new to aesthetics in the U.S., for many years PRP has been recognized as an effective treatment for sports injuries, diabetic ulcers, and orthopedics to name a few.
Now cosmetic patients who wish to use their own body’s regenerative powers can do so without the concerns of infection, foreign material, or surgical interventions. PRP enhances the outcome of your procedure because the internal essence of your blood contains life-giving fundamental protein growth factors which aid in promoting new collagen plus cell & tissue growth.
PRP is obtained with a simple & quick process:
- The practitioner draws an amount of blood similar to what is required for a basic lab test.
- The practitioner places the blood into a centrifuge. It spins the blood at a very rapid rate to separate the platelets from the other components of the blood.
Your PRP professional is able to derive a high concentration of biological nutrient-rich cells and create autologous platelet-rich plasma which is then infused with the Micro-Needling device, leaving you fresh-faced and glowing!*
The Fraxel Laser Treatment improves the texture of the skin, reduces wrinkles, skin discolorations such as age spots and sun spots on face, hands or anywhere on the body, as well as significantly improving the appearance of acne scars. Fraxel is safer than many other laser treatments with minimized side effects and quicker healing times. Typically 3 to 5 treatments – one month apart – are recommended depending on the severity of the problem. Most patients will notice improvement after a single treatment. “Maintenance” treatments can be performed as needed. For darker skin tones it may be necessary to pre-treat the skin at home for 4 to 6 weeks prior to Fraxel in order to prevent post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. Our laser technician will conduct a thorough analysis and assessment prior to the procedure to determine if you are a good candidate for Fraxel, or may recommend an alternate treatment for the most effective outcome.*
IPL Intense Pulsed Light/Photofacial
IPL is used to treat brown spots, red spots, and unwanted pigmentation such as sun spots and background redness. With gentle pulses of intense, optimized light, it helps even out your skin tone and decrease the appearance of vessels with little or no discomfort. It can take as little as 30 minutes and usually you only need a few treatments to see results.*

North Shore Ultherapy
A Nonsurgical Way to Lift, Tighten, & Tone Skin
Ultherapy is on the cutting edge of skin rejuvenation technology. By using ultrasound, The Medical Spa at New Horizons Center can enhance and tone skin from within. The ultrasound waves used in Ultherapy penetrate the epidermis for deep tissue stimulation. In this layer of deep tissue lies your face’s collagen deposits. By stimulating these collagen deposits, the North Shore Medical Spa Services causes collagen growth, which restores a healthy firmness to your neck and face.*
