Microneedling is a treatment used to tighten the skin, minimize wrinkles and reduce pore size. Dr. David Herschthal and Dr. Jordana Herschthal at The Herschthal Practice help Boca Raton, Delray Beach, and Fort Lauderdale, FL area patients achieve smoother, younger, firmer, and more beautiful skin via microneedling treatments.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is a solution for many different types of skin damage and flaws, including wrinkles, scars, fine lines, and large pores. This treatment creates controlled tiny wounds in the skin using a small group of ultra-fine needles. The entire group of needles is contained in a device that’s only about the size of a writing pen. The small holes in the skin force your body to start breaking apart tough scar tissue like acne scars and other skin damage. The cells in the lower layers of skin are also stimulated to produce fresh collagen and elastin, which means the damaged skin gradually is replaced by a fresh, new layer of skin.
What is Vivace™ Microneedling?
Vivace™ is a fractional microneedling radiofrequency treatment that tightens the skin, minimizes wrinkles, reduces pore size, and more.
What Does Vivace™ Fractional Microneedling with Radiofrequency Feel Like?
Because Dr. Herschthal applies a numbing cream prior to the Vivace™ treatment, you may feel only mild pressure on the face.
What Type of Aftercare is Needed After Vivace™ Treatment?
There is no downtime needed after Vivace™ treatment, and patients generally can return to their normal routine the same day. Dr. Herschthal recommends specific recovery protocols to help patients get the most from their Vivace™ treatment. This can include a weekly mask and a soothing recovery system. Patients should avoid sun exposure for at least three to five days following treatment, and strenuous physical activity should be avoided for the same period. To achieve optimal results, follow up treatments may be recommended, with treatments spaced at least a month apart.
How Long Do Vivace™ Results Last?
You should start to notice results fairly quickly after the first Vivace™ treatment. Results continue to improve over time, as the collagen and elastin are rebuilt. The optimal result typically is seen around four to six months post-treatment.
What is SkinPen® Microneedling?
The Herschthal Practice also offers SkinPen® microneedling, a minimally invasive procedure that regenerates skin by stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin. The process takes about 15 minutes, resulting in smoother, firmer looking skin. We utilize the SkinPen® for localized regions, and Vivace™ for the global treatment of large areas, like the entire face.
