Stimulate Collagen and Get a Rejuvenating Boost in the Denver Area
As we age, the skin and hair follicles receive fewer growth signals, resulting in sagging skin, fine lines, and hair loss. Cutting-edge research has identified new ways to send cellular signals for the skin and hair to return to a more youthful appearance. The most effective cosmetic dermatology treatments are used in combination and are tailored to each individual’s specific skin type and concern. Microneedling and plasma at the Denver area’s AboutSkin Dermatology are two techniques for sending signals to the skin to remodel and regrow.
What Is Microneedling?
A microneedling device uses tiny needles to stimulate collagen production by creating numerous shallow wounds in the skin. Damaged skin sends signals to grow and repair, which results in increased production of collagen. Because collagen is important for strong, smooth, and flexible skin, as the body creates more of the protein as part of the healing process, the overall look of the skin in the treatment area improves.
What Is Plasma?
This is a treatment created by harvesting a patient’s blood and spinning it in a centrifuge to separate out the platelets from the red blood cells. Plasma is the fluid in which the platelets and red blood cells are suspended. After removing the red blood cells, a high concentration of platelets and growth factors are left behind in the plasma. This plasma has a very high concentration of the body’s own ingredients to stimulate growth and cellular repair. Plasma has been used in many areas of medicine to help with the growth and healing process (for example, Tiger Woods and Rafael Nadal have been treated with plasma for tendon injuries), and this cutting-edge procedure is now being used by dermatologists to address skin concerns.
What Areas Can Microneedling and Plasma Treat?
Microneedling and plasma are used for skin rejuvenation on the face, neck, and chest and can be combined into one treatment for even more dramatic results. By using two methods to increase collagen production in the skin, the treatments can improve texture, address mild laxity, and provide other benefits.
Can Plasma Help with Hair Loss?
All six of the Board-Certified Physicians at AboutSkin Dermatology also use plasma for hair restoration.
Millions of men and women find over time that their hair begins to thin in a predictable way. This pattern loss is genetic and not due to specific environmental factors. The problem is due to hair follicles “shutting down” and failing to produce new hairs as they should.
Applying the high concentration of growth factors and platelets present in plasma to the areas around the hair follicles can “wake up” ailing follicles, encouraging hair growth in areas where a hairline is receding, a part is widening, or a bald patch is growing. Note that this approach is effective on patients who are losing their hair, not those who have already gone bald.
What Other Rejuvenating Treatments Are Available?
Microneedling may also be paired with radiofrequency energy for improved collagen-induction results, as with Genius® RF. In addition to penetrating the skin, this device’s needles deliver RF energy below the surface. Noninvasive Ultherapy® uses ultrasound to generate sub-surface heat and trigger collagen production, which results in skin tightening.
The best treatment depends on a patient’s unique characteristics and personal goals. A member of the AboutSkin team can assess an individual’s skin condition and tailor a customized plan designed to achieve the desired aesthetic outcome.

What our patients say about usBOOK NOW
Dr. Cohen is 'a derm's derm' -- his published research and opinions are sought after by other dermatologists obsessed with the latest innovations in cosmetic dermatology, including lasers, neuromodulators, and fillers. He's also trained many of these derms. Dr. Cohen is arguably one of the best in the U.S., though he's not flashy or self promoting --just intensely focused on achieving elegant, successful results. I stumbled into his practice quite by accident, and could not be happier. His PA Christina is also phenomenal.
I am so pleased with the high level of expertise and care I have received from Dr. Cohen, Dr. Ho and his medical assistants Cristina and Emily. From the Mohs surgery, to a multitude of lasers, to skin checks; the doctors have been extremely conscientious and strive to have a relationship with their patients. I am thrilled with the results of my cosmetic procedures and surgery. In addition, They are kind and very humble providers. It truly is an honor to be a patient of Dr. Cohen and to be a valued patient of his medical practice. Truly the best in the country.. and The World. Thank you Dr. Cohen and Dr. Ho and staff!
Have been a patient of Dr. Stoler for a long time. She knows me well and takes excellent care of my skin. Also gives good and appropriate advice!
Dr. Joel Cohen was highly recommended to me by several other dermatologists for his expertise in laser technology. I was not only impressed with the treatment I received from Dr. Cohen, but also his wonderful, highly skilled staff. The entire experience was top notch!
This is the BEST dermatology and cosmetic location you will ever find! Truthfully they give all the attention and care anyone could ask for. I’m always blown away at their kindness and their service. Doctor Jade Fettig always takes her time to talk to me, answer any questions and recommend the best treatment. Highly highly recommend AboutSkinDermatology. You will love it there too guaranteed! =)
Dr. Stoler is the best!
I have been a patient of About Skin Dermatology for over 12 years. Everyone that I have ever encountered at this practice has been knowledgeable and very kind. I see both Dr. Ho and Dr. Cohen. My skin has not looked this good in years. My whole family goes to this practice. I would highly recommend About Skin Dermatology.
Dr Fettig was great- took her time with me and answered my questions. She has a nice bedside manner and good sense of humor.
I used Dr. Cohen for a Mohs procedure. He is fellowship trained and extremely competent. Dr. Cohen remained involved in my follow up care with a plastic surgeon and was always readily accessible and available to address my concerns. Both he and the office staff are caring and committed to providing the highest level of professional service. I highly recommend Dr. Cohen. I think it’s very nice.
I have been impressed with my Botox treatment from Dr Cohen at AboutSkin Dermatology. He and his staff are incredibly professional and pleasant. Maddie is always flexible and accommodating with my hectic schedule. Dr. Cohen takes time and a genuine interest in his patients. I highly recommend him for any cosmetic procedures.
Dr Stephen Ho is a fantastic dermatologist. He takes the time to listen to concerns and he patiently and thoroughly explains procedures and diagnostics.
