PRP & Micro-Needling

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling has been around since the ’90s but has been gaining popularity recently thanks to new technologies, like SkinPen, and new products like PRP serum. Patients love this skin-rejuvenating option because it’s minimally invasive, requires little downtime, and offers impressive benefits across various skin conditions.

Microneedling safely wounds the skin with tiny needles to stimulate collagen production as part of the healing process. The benefits of this therapy (also sometimes referred to as collagen induction therapy) include an increase in natural collagen production and a reduction in the appearance of scars, fine lines, and wrinkles. Microneedling can also produce impressive results in evening-out skin tone, reducing scars and other minor skin issues.

What is the SkinPen?

PRP Microneedling

As we age, collagen production begins to slow naturally, which causes the skin to lose elasticity and sag and wrinkles to form. In addition, as we age, there is increased sun and environmental pollution exposure, which can make the pores appear enlarged with age. These changes can prematurely age our skin. However, thanks to new technology in the SkinPen and PRP serum, you can turn back the hands of time and keep your youthful glow. 

We utilize a tool called the SkinPen, which is the only device cleared by the FDA for Class II microneedling. SkinPen uses revolutionary technology to create micro-injuries that stimulate collagen production, enhancing the skin’s youthful appearance. 

Essentially, these micro-injuries cause minor stress to the skin. However, the process boosts collagen as the skin heals, which also improves its texture and tone. The increase of collagen helps to fade the look of scars, plump the skin enough to diminish the appearance of fine lines, and evens out the tone and texture of the skin. Microneedling is commonly used on the face, and it can also be used to treat the neck and chest.

At Coastal, we combine the impressive effects of the SkinPen with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), which is a nonsurgical facial rejuvenation method that uses your growth factors to stimulate healing and repair.

Harmony XL Pro is considered safe for all skin types and is used to treat various skin concerns. It provides an excellent alternative to many surgical or more invasive treatments while delivering outstanding results.

The best patients for this treatment are in good general health, are non-smokers, and have one or more of the following skin issues: early-onset or mild skin laxity on the face or body, lines or wrinkles, colored lesions, acne scars, or tattoos they would like to remove.

Although Harmony XL Pro can provide impressive results, you may need a more invasive treatment if you have moderate to severe skin laxity that droops or hangs. We want you to have the best results possible, and that is why we recommend a consultation before booking.

Am I a good candidate for microneedling?

The best candidates for microneedling are not currently pregnant and haven’t recently undergone radiation treatments. In addition, they are non-smokers and in good general health with no preexisting skin issues such as eczema or psoriasis. Ideal candidates also have realistic expectations about the results of this procedure and can commit to at least three sessions for optimal results, and will intentionally give their skin the time and care it needs to heal between sessions.

What are the benefits of microneedling?

Microneedling is a great way to freshen up your skin and create that lit-from-within glow while improving skin texture. Microneedling also helps reduce the size of the pores, improve the look of age spots, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. In addition, it can soften scars (even acne scars). Many patients report a youthful glow and restored fullness to their skin after the healing process is complete.

Microneedling FAQs

Microneedling is a procedure used most commonly on the neck and face. It targets the following areas. If you think microneedling is for you, give us a call to book your consultation.

 

  • Acne scars
  • Age spots
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Enlarged pores
  • Loss of skin elasticity
  • Uneven skin tone

All cosmetic procedures have the potential for adverse reactions; however, those odds are minimal. The most common side effect reported after microneedling is minor skin irritation immediately following the procedure. In addition, some patients experience redness on the treated areas for a few days or a feeling of sensitivity. However, this is short-lived and does not occur in all patients. 

 

Microneedling doesn’t require much downtime to recover. Some patients with sensitive skin experience minor skin irritation in the first few days, typical of the healing process. The majority of our patients can return to work the same day as treatment. It’s best to give your skin a little TLC in the days following this treatment. Wear SPF on the treated areas and avoid extreme sun exposure.  

 

The results from your microneedling session will be visible within a few weeks of your first session. To obtain the maximum benefits of microneedling, we will design an optimal treatment plan. Usually, patients book three sessions to achieve their desired results, but every patient is different. We can help you determine your best treatment plan, as well as maintenance sessions to help you maintain your new look.

Even just one treatment will make a noticeable difference. However, when you call to book your consultation, our talented staff will be able to answer all your questions and help you create an optimal treatment plan for all your aesthetic needs. Most patients book three sessions to achieve their optimal results.
