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 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 in helping skin become smoother, firmer, and more toned.
Koniver Aesthetics offers this advanced skin rejuvenation treatment with the innovative Vivace™ RF Microneedling system and Skinpen® Precision system.
Why Vivace™ RF Microneedling?
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
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 (RF) 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 minutes prior to the treatment with the actual treatment taking 45 minutes. There is minimal to no downtime. 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 Crown Aesthetics?
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 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.
My first step to Microneedling?
Microneedling FAQ. 4 Things to Know!
What are the primary differences between the two devices?
Both Vivace™ and SkinPen® provide great benefit in improving the signs of aging and revitalizing skin. However, results with Vivace™ are considerably superior to those of SkinPen®. With that, Vivace™ treatments are a bit more expensive. But SkinPen® is a great introduction to microneedling for people who are new to the treatment and might prefer a more affordable option.
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 amounts of sunscreen when you are out because your skin is vulnerable to sunburn. Ideally, avoid working out or applying makeup or any other skincare for 24 hours.
Is there any issue with skin color for this treatment?
Men and women of all skin colors and ethnicities, including tanned skin and darker skin, can be treated with microneedling. In fact, one of the key advantages of microneedling is that it can be used on all skin types. The device settings can be customized to your specific skin tone.
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.
