South Shore Skin Center and Spa Offers Exclusive New ePrime

South Shore Skin Center and Spa, one of the most progressive dermatology practices in Massachusetts with offices in Plymouth and Cohasset, is one of the only providers in New England to offer the FDA-approved ePrime – a new, non-surgical skin tightening technology.

ePrime is a revolutionary new facial treatment technology that has recently been approved by the FDA for use in physician’s offices. It is an energy-based dermal volumizer device that tightens the skin and reduces wrinkles on the lower face and neck. ePrime is a non-surgical, minimally invasive facial enhancement with a quick recovery period of two to three days.

The procedure penetrates to the skin’s deepest layer, stimulating both collagen and elastin production. ePrime (Syneron) utilizes radio frequency energy to activate the dermis.

“We are excited to offer this cutting-edge procedure to our patients as a non-surgical alternative to traditional lifts,” noted Richard Eisen, M.D. “Its effectiveness is similar to other ablative lasers, yet it is unique because it also stimulates the production of new elastin and hyaluronic acid. Patients have noticeably improved skin tone and volume – a more youthful appearance.”

For questions or to schedule an ePrime consultation, contact South Shore Skin Center and Spa in Plymouth (508) 747-0711 or Cohasset (781) 383-3340.
