Microneedling has gained significant popularity and rightfully so. This procedure revitalizes your skin, helping you to build back lost collagen due to aging. At liv Plastic Surgery, we offer microneedling with RejuvaPen™ as one of our incredible medspa treatments for our patients in Boca Raton and the surrounding cities of South Florida, including Delray Beach, Boynton Beach, Fort Lauderdale and all throughout Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties.
Microneedling is a great alternative to laser skin resurfacing or cosmetic surgery if you are not yet prepared for one of those procedures. Microneedling aids in the production of collagen in order to improve the texture and tone of your skin, as well as to get rid of surface scars and fine wrinkles. Microneedling helps to stimulate your skin to heal itself. This long-lasting solution works with your body in order to naturally rejuvenate your skin.
How is the Microneedling Procedure is Performed?
Microneedling involves the use of tiny needles that move at a high speed to make tiny holes in your skin. By penetrating your skin, microneedling stimulates your skin’s ability to heal itself. During that healing process, your body will produce collagen and elastin.
We use the RejuvaPen™ system to perform microneedling. This “pen” uses a special cartridge with nine small needles that rejuvenate the skin. These are extremely small but will yield big results. At liv Plastic Surgery, we will use a topical numbing cream that will be applied to your skin about 20 minutes prior to the treatment. The actual procedure is not painful because the needles are moving at a high speed and the penetration happens quickly. There may be mild discomfort, and can often feel like sandpaper on your skin.
For additional facial rejuvenation, we often will follow up our microneedling treatments with PRP therapy. This is ideal for the treatment of acne scars, surgical scars, stretch marks, wrinkles and fine lines, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, large pores, and uneven skin texture. It can be performed either on the face or body, and is suitable for all skin types and colors. It will be determined during your evaluation whether PRP therapy will be beneficial for you.
