Microneedling

If you want a non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatment and are interested in minimal discomfort, quick healing, and immediate results, Microneedling may be right for you.

Microneedling
Microneedling is an FDA-cleared, micro-invasive treatment that uses small needles to lightly penetrate the skin in order to stimulate your body’s natural collagen production resulting in tighter skin. What’s more, Vivace is shown to be effective for skin tissue becoming smoother, firmer, and more toned.
 
Coastal Skin Solutions offers this advanced skin rejuvenation treatment with the innovative Vivace® RF Microneedling system and Skinpen® Precision system. 

Why Vivace® RF Microneedling?

Vivace
Vivace Microneedling, the newest generation of radiofrequency (RF) microneedling, is an ideal option for patients who desire smoother, tighter, more elastic skin, along with a reduction in the prominence of wrinkles, scarring, pores, and stretch marks. The new collagen production leads to younger-looking skin and improved texture as patients can see results immediately as well as over the long-term. Skin looks visibly revitalized and renewed.
 
Ideal for face, neck, chest and body, Vivace RF Microneedling can achieve:
    • Comprehensive skin rejuvenation
    • Correction of sun damage
    • Tighter, firmer, more elastic skin
    • Reduction in the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and creases
    • Improved skin tone and texture
    • Treatment of active acne
    • Reduction in stretch marks, acne scarring, and other types of scars
    • Immediate results; gradual improved results over time
Vivace features a precision robotic motor that brings discomfort down to virtually zero compared to any other device. When the microneedle tip of the Vivace system lightly penetrates the superficial layer of skin, radiofrequency energy is transmitted through the needles to heat the deeper tissue, adjusted to deliver a customized treatment. The skin reacts by working to repair the tissue through the formation of new elastin and collagen fibers, which gradually give the skin a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance. Immediately following treatment, the skin easily absorbs specialized serums that can further improve skin quality.
 

A numbing cream is applied 30 to 45 minutes prior to the treatment with the actual treatment taking 45 minutes. Downtime is minimal. The immediate results improve over time with multiple treatments. Typically, three treatments, spaced four to six weeks apart, provide the results patients seek.

Why SKINPEN® by Bellus Medical?

SkinPen
In our practice, we use the Skinpen Precision system, in conjunction with topical Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for facial rejuvenation, as a minimally invasive skin treatment that helps minimize the signs of aging, improve the appearance of scars and revitalize skin.
 
SkinPen is the first microneedling device cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, clinically proven to safely and effectively treat facial acne scars for ages 22 and up.  With as few as three non-invasive and affordable treatments spaced 30 days apart, you can improve your appearance for six months after your last treatment. 
 
Fine needles puncture the skin at various depths to create controlled micro-injuries which trigger the release of cytokines and growth factors, as part of the natural healing process that lead to effective remodeling of scar tissue. When using microneedling + PRP for skin rejuvenation, patients report improvements in fine lines, skin texture, hydration, radiance, and acneskin texture, hydration, radiance, and acne and surgical scarring.
 
SkinPen is a short procedure (less than 30 minutes) that is comfortable, with a mild sensation (slight vibration) with minimal post-procedure effects and soothing aftercare to enhance results. Numbing cream and topical anesthetics can be used for comfort. Individual results vary. 
 
While improvements are seen with one treatment, most patients benefit from a series of three treatments spaced one month apart.

Microneedling FAQ. 3 Things to Know!

Question 1  
How can I maximize my results?
The right device with the right serums with the right recovery plan: follow the recommended recovery protocol when you get home. Avoid the sun and use generous sunscreen when you are out because your skin is vulnerable to sunburn. Avoid working out for three to five days.
 
Question 2
Is there any issue with skin color for this treatment?
Men and women of most skin colors and ethnicities, including tanned skin and darker skin, can be treated with microneedling radio frequency.
 
Question 3
How long do these results last?
The collagen and elastin you make is your own and continues to accelerate production over the next six months after treatment and so results improve over time.
