Tiny Needles That Pack a Powerful Punch

Microneedling is a skin rejuvenation treatment that uses a small device with tiny needles to create microchannels on the skin’s surface. These channels stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which are essential proteins for healthy, youthful-looking skin. The treatment can also reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation. At South Coast MedSpa, we also offer microneedling with PRP, which enhances the treatment’s effectiveness and provides even more dramatic results. Come see why microneedling with PRP is a favorite among our clients in Los Angeles, Newport Beach, San Diego and Brea.

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scars and other types of scars
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Hyperpigmentation and age spots
  • Enlarged pores
  • Stretch marks
  • Loose, sagging skin

  • Dull, tired-looking skin

The Science Behind Microneedling

Microneedling creates micro-injuries on the skin’s surface using a device with tiny needles. This process triggers the body’s natural wound-healing response, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, which are essential proteins that provide the skin with its structure and elasticity. As the skin heals, it becomes thicker, firmer, and smoother, with an improved texture and tone. Microneedling is a safe and effective way to achieve younger-looking skin without invasive treatments.

Microneedling + PRP

Microneedling with PRP (platelet-rich plasma) involves combining microneedling with the patient’s blood plasma. PRP is rich in growth factors and other proteins that stimulate collagen production and accelerate healing. During microneedling, a small amount of the patient’s blood is drawn and spun in a centrifuge to separate the PRP from the rest of the blood. The PRP is applied to the skin during microneedling, allowing deeper penetration and even more significant collagen stimulation. The result is improved skin texture, tone, and firmness.

  • Stimulates collagen and elastin production
  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improves skin texture and tone
  • Reduces acne scars and other types of scars
  • Evens out skin tone and reduces hyperpigmentation
  • Can be used on various areas of the body
  • Safe and minimally invasive treatment
  • Little to no downtime
  • Results in younger-looking, smoother, and more radiant skin

Your Complete Microneedling Experience

To prepare for your microneedling appointment, avoid sun exposure and tanning for at least two weeks before your treatment. You should also stop using exfoliating products, retinoids, or other topical skincare treatments for several days beforehand. Don’t forget to inform our staff if you have any allergies or medical conditions that could affect the procedure.

During your microneedling session, your skin will be thoroughly cleansed and prepped for treatment. Our experienced technicians will use a specialized device with tiny needles to create micro-injuries on your skin’s surface. Depending on your needs and preferences, we may incorporate PRP to enhance your results. The session lasts around 30-60 minutes.

Side Effects
Microneedling is a safe and minimally invasive procedure with few side effects. You may experience mild redness, swelling, or discomfort in the treated area, but this should subside within a day or two.

Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure with little to no downtime, the skin may be slightly pink for 2-4 days. You can return to your regular activities within 24 hours after the procedure, but it’s essential to avoid sun exposure and wear sunscreen to protect your skin. Our team at South Coast MedSpa will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to ensure a comfortable and successful recovery.

You may notice immediate skin texture and tone improvements after your microneedling session at South Coast MedSpa. However, the full results typically appear gradually over several weeks as new collagen and elastin form. The results can last several months to a year or more, depending on your skin type and individual factors.

The number of microneedling treatments needed for optimal results varies depending on your skin concerns and goals. At South Coast MedSpa, we typically recommend 3-6 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart for maximum benefits. Our experienced team will work with you to develop a customized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.
