BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - May 21, 2013) - Dr. Leonard B. Miller, a board-certified Boston plastic surgeon, continually strives to employ the latest and most efficient techniques the field of cosmetic facial aesthetics has to offer. At Boston Center for Facial Rejuvenation, his private practice, Dr. Miller was one of the first practitioners to perform Percutaneous Collagen Induction Therapy in the United States. Since then, many cosmetic specialists have followed his lead and introduced the procedure into their own practices.
Whenever possible, Dr. Miller hopes to help his patients achieve their facial rejuvenation goals through less-invasive treatments such as chemical peels or laser skin resurfacing. According to him, Percutaneous Collagen Induction Therapy is a simple, non-surgical procedure that improves the condition and appearance of aesthetic concerns including:
- Stubborn lines on the forehead
- Wrinkles around the mouth and upper lip
- Acne scarring
- Stretch marks
With Dr. Miller's expertise leading the way, the collagen therapy procedure is gaining acceptance around the country.
Percutaneous Collagen Induction Therapy uses a combination of a "roller with multiple fine needles" and topical therapies. Dr. Miller says the use of analgesic creams (with or without local anesthesia) allows for an almost painless procedure that can be performed in less than one hour. In addition to the face, the Boston plastic surgeon also says some other common areas treated by Percutaneous Collagen Induction Therapy include the skin around the belly button and areas on the breasts and abdomen.
Dr. Miller typically tells his Boston plastic surgery patients that Percutaneous Collagen Induction Therapy produces results that can last for years. The procedure is safe, causes no pigment change or scarring, and can be repeated whenever needed, he says. At the Boston Center for Facial Rejuvenation, Dr. Miller uses a combination of surgical and non-surgical techniques that are effective, performed with subtlety for a natural look, and deliver long-term results.
