Chemical Peels

The Vanishing Vein offers chemical peels to patients throughout Framingham, Boston, Newton, Worcester, Cambridge, Lowell and Quincy, MA.

What are Chemical Peels?

Chemical peels are skin care treatments that work to reduce wrinkles and prevent visible signs of aging, such as brown spots and adult acne. The chemicals are applied to the face to remove skin cells and stimulate the production of healthy new cells. Chemical peels are an effective way to dry out active acne in preparation for further treatments. Here at The Vanishing Vein, we offer several different chemical peels, including glycolic, AHA, lactic, salicylic and jessners.

If you want to learn more about chemical peels costs, or if you’d like to request some chemical peels before and after pictures, please give us a call today and we would be happy to assist you.

 

What are the Differences Between the Chemical Peels?

  • Glycolic Peel –Treats fine lines, acne, uneven pigmentation and sun damage. Glycolic acid works by peeling off the outer layers of the skin, so new fresh skin underneath is uncovered. The acid urges the creation of new collagen.
  • AHA Peel –The mildest peel. It helps to separate dead skin from healthy skin. Used to smooth skin and even out skin tone. Also treats acne and reduces acne scars.
  • Lactic Peel –Treats a variety of skin problems, including rosacea, wrinkles, age spots and eczema. It provides a high level of hydration and is very effective in removal of the dead epidermis, revealing radiant skin.
  • Salicylic Peel –Used to treat acne. It’s known to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Salicylic acid can gently remove the upper layers of your surface skin. The skin left behind is tighter, firmer, brighter and smoother.
  • Jessner Peel –It is best used for treatment of cystic acne and acne scarring. It smoothes and revives the skin, exposing a younger and newer skin layer underneath. It also reduces oil production and open blocked fatty follicles, which helps to heal acne. There will be downtime for about three to four days. Peeling and flaking lasts about seven days.

The best way to determine which peel is best for you is to browse through a variety of chemical peels before and after photos. Or give us a call to set up a consultation with Dr. Davison, who will discuss your specific goals and come up with a treatment plan for you.

What are Chemical Peel Costs?

What is eMatrix?

The eMatrix system is a unique Sublative Rejuvenation™ system whose treatment goes beyond fractional methods for skin resurfacing. It uses RF sublation-fractionated bipolar radio frequency technology (as opposed to laser or other light-based treatments) that directly hits the dermal layer of skin without harming the epidermal layer.

To see the effectiveness of this treatment, please take a moment to view some eMatrix before and after pictures. Or you can give us a call today to learn more about the procedure, or to discuss eMatrix prices.

The eMatrix system is the perfect solution for any scarring, acne pitting, and facial lines that you wish to fill in. The resurfacing of the skin fills in the inconsistencies and leaves you with smooth and youthful skin.

You can expect minimal discomfort and downtime. See the difference this treatment can make by viewing some eMatrix before and after pictures.

Microdermabrasion

The Vanishing Vein offers microdermabrasion to patients throughout Framingham, Boston, Newton, Worcester, Cambridge, Lowell and Quincy, MA.

What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive skin car procedure in which we apply a highly controlled stream of fine crystals and suction to the surface layer of the skin. This gentle abrasion works to remove dead skin cells, unblock clogged pores, and smooth the surface of stretch marks, scars, blemishes and uneven skin tones. Not only does microdermabrasion remove dead skin cells, but it also stimulates new cell growth.

To see the benefits of this procedure, browse through a variety of microdermabrasion before and after pictures. We would also be happy to answer any questions you have, such as average microdermabrasion prices. Give us a call today and speak with a member of our friendly staff.

 

How is Microdermabrasion Performed?

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure, so there is no anesthesia necessary. Dr. Davison performs it right here in our Framingham office, and it takes approximately 45 minutes. The procedure itself involves applying a stream of fine crystals and suction to slough off dead skin cells.

Am I a Good Candidate for Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion perfect for those who want to reduce the appearance of age spots, dark pigmentation and sun-damaged skin. It can effectively minimize large pores and improve the look of small scars and surface acne. However, microdermabrasion is not perfect for everyone. If you have heavily damaged or sagging skin, microdermabrasion may not be the procedure for you. Also, if you have active acne, rosacea, herpes or certain other conditions, you may not be a suitable candidate. Please discuss your medical history with Dr. Davison prior to electing any treatment.

What are the Typical Results of Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is highly effective in improving skin’s tone, texture and color. With the dead layer of skin gone, the new, healthier cells are able to form, giving way to a more youthful and glowing complexion. You can see for yourself by viewing some microdermabrasion before and after pictures.

What are Microdermabrasion Costs?

Microdermabrasion costs will depend on the patient, while you may require more than one treatment for optimal results. Your surgeon will discuss all of your goals and the proper treatment plan for you during your initial consultation, so give us a call today and we’d be happy to schedule it for you.


Micro-Needling

Try Micro-Needling for Non-Surgical Skin Rejuvenation in Framingham, MA!

Are you looking for a way to subtly improve your skin appearance without surgical procedures or downtime? Micro-needling treatments at the Vanishing Vein can be an ideal solution for reducing skin imperfections and brightening your skin from the inside out.

Serving Framingham, Massachusetts and surrounding areas, the Vanishing Vein is led by Dr. Brian Davison. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and discover the benefits of micro-needling for non-surgical skin rejuvenation and remodeling.

What is Micro-Needling?

The practice of micro-needling has utilized for centuries as a means to exfoliate and open up the skin without causing extensive damage to the surface or connective tissues. Modern advancements in this cosmetic procedure now make micro-needling one of the safest, fastest, and least invasive methods of non-surgical skin rejuvenation on the market.

At the Vanishing Vein, our micro-needling procedures can help improve a wide range of skin imperfections, such as:

  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Dark spots
  • Certain types of general and acne scarring
  • Uneven tone and texture
  • Skin dullness
  • And more!

Not all skin imperfections respond to micro-needling. During your consultation, Dr. Davison will thoroughly evaluate your skin condition and discuss your available treatment options with you.

How Does Micro-Needling Work?

For our micro-needling procedures, we utilize an automated, pen-like device that contains several sterile, medical-grade needles in a single-use tip. As the device is moved slowly over treated areas, the needles penetrate below the skin surface to a specific depth. In a process referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy, fresh, new collagen cells are produced within the skin, reducing the appearance of skin imperfections and creating stronger, smoother skin over time.

What are the Benefits of Micro-Needling at the Vanishing Vein?

  • Non-surgical and minimally-invasive
  • Simple, fast treatment sessions that are easy to schedule for busy patients
  • Complete skin remodeling from the inside out using the body’s natural healing response
  • Minimal to no downtime
  • Can be used as a long-term way to keep your skin smooth, soft, and free of superficial imperfections
  • Professional, physician-directed results

Are There Any Side Effects?

Micro-needling can cause slight reddening and swelling of the skin after treatment, which is an indicator that the skin healing process has begun. Men and women who qualify for treatment typically return to normal activities immediately afterward without any complications. All additional safety information will be shared prior to your procedure.

Contact the Vanishing Vein today to schedule a consultation and find out more about micro-needling for non-surgical skin rejuvenation from the inside out.

Ultrasonic Facial

The Vanishing Vein offers ultrasonic facial treatments to patients throughout Framingham, Boston, Newton, Worcester, Cambridge, Lowell and Quincy, MA.

What is an Ultrasonic Facial?

An ultrasonic facial uses a low-frequency ultrasound to loosen and remove dead skin cells and debris from the skin’s surface, then penetrating products into your dermal layer to hydrate your skin. Using this sound wave technology, we are able to penetrate deep within the skin in order to tone muscles, decrease swelling, improve blood circulation and give your skin an overall more youthful appearance.

Check out some ultrasonic facial before and after pictures to get a better idea of the results. Or give us a call to set up your consultation with Dr. Davison, where he’d be happy to go over your specific goals and give you an estimate of the ultrasonic facial prices that you can expect.

How is an Ultrasonic Facial Performed?

The ultrasonic facial is a safe and non-invasive procedure performed right here in our Framingham office. Dr. Davison will apply a gel to the treatment area which penetrates deep into the sin and improves the conductivity of the ultrasound machine. He will then use a portable, professional-grade ultrasound machine to gently exfoliate and penetrate the skin. The intensive sound waves will penetrate deep within the dermis, and it will not affect or harm the other layers of the skin.

What are the Results of an Ultrasonic Facial?

While you may notice an immediate firming of your skin following your ultrasonic facial, this procedure generally takes multiple applications to achieve long-lasting results. Some of the benefits include tightening and toning, refining large pores, minimizing the look of wrinkles, scars, redness and age spots, and improving the overall tone and texture of the skin. The ultrasonic facial also stimulates blood circulation, increases cell metabolism, cleanses away toxins and cleans up acne and other blemishes. You can see the stunning results by viewing some ultrasonic facial before and after pictures.
