Microneedling With SkinStylus™

SkinStylus™ offers a modern twist to traditional microneedling, promising precision and safety. This advanced tool minimizes discomfort and post-treatment redness. By creating controlled micro-injuries, it triggers collagen and elastin production, providing a smoother and more youthful appearance. With its unique design, the SkinStylus™ ensures that each session is efficient and tailored to individual skin needs.

RF Microneedling With Scarlet SRF

Scarlet SRF takes microneedling a step further by integrating radiofrequency (RF) technology. This combination ensures deep dermal heating, optimizing collagen and elastin synthesis. While the microneedles create micro-injuries, the RF energy further stimulates tissue tightening and remodeling. Scarlet SRF is renowned for delivering consistent results, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin, making it a top choice for comprehensive skin rejuvenation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Regular microneedling focuses on creating micro-injuries to boost collagen production, whereas RF microneedling combines these micro-injuries with the power of radiofrequency energy. This dual-action approach enhances skin tightening and rejuvenation.


The addition of RF energy means deeper tissue stimulation, targeting more pronounced skin concerns like sagging and deeper wrinkles. Both treatments offer skin-enhancing benefits, but the choice between them hinges on individual skin goals and the level of rejuvenation sought. Both treatments are great for minimizing scars, wrinkles, and pores.

The treatment process begins with a thorough skin cleansing. Post-cleansing, a numbing cream is applied to ensure client comfort. Then, a specialized device is maneuvered across the skin’s surface. As the device glides, its fine needles create micro-injuries, triggering the body’s healing mechanisms.

Post-treatment, a soothing serum or treatment might be applied to enhance results and reduce any minor redness or swelling. It’s a testament to the treatment’s simplicity that many clients return to their day-to-day activities promptly after a session.

This treatment has proven efficacious in treating an array of skin concerns. Acne scars, a bane for many, can be significantly diminished, giving a smoother skin texture. In addition, the treatment can address concerns like large pores, fine lines, and uneven skin tone.

Apart from facial concerns, this treatment can also be applied to other body areas to combat issues like stretch marks. The versatility of this treatment makes it a sought-after treatment for individuals aiming for comprehensive skin improvement.

This treatment stands out for its minimal downtime, allowing clients to integrate it easily into busy schedules. With each session, the treatment encourages the skin’s inherent ability to heal and regenerate, yielding natural-looking results.

Furthermore, this treatment enhances the skin’s receptivity to topical products. This means your favorite serums and creams penetrate deeper, making them even more effective. Over time, regular treatments can render the skin more radiant, resilient, and youthful.

Most individuals are suitable candidates. The treatment caters to various skin types and addresses a spectrum of concerns. However, certain conditions might necessitate caution. Individuals with active skin infections, certain skin diseases, or those on particular medications might be advised to delay or reconsider the treatment.

It’s imperative to consult with a professional, such as those at Thrive Med Spa & Wellness, to assess your skin’s specific needs and determine the best course of action.

The number of sessions required can vary based on individual skin concerns and desired outcomes. Generally, for significant skin improvements like deep acne scars or pronounced wrinkles, a series of 3-6 treatments spaced about 4-6 weeks apart is often recommended. However, for mild concerns or routine skin maintenance, fewer sessions may suffice.

It’s essential to seek consultation from a qualified practitioner, like the experts at Thrive Med Spa & Wellness, to tailor a treatment plan fitting your unique needs.

Some individuals notice an immediate glow post-treatment, but more transformative results typically become visible in the weeks following the treatment. As the skin’s natural collagen production is stimulated, improvements in texture, tone, and clarity become progressively noticeable.

By the second or third week post-session, the full impact of the treatment starts to manifest. However, since collagen and elastin regeneration is an ongoing process, some clients witness continuous enhancements for up to six months following a session.

To extend the benefits, it’s crucial to implement a rigorous skincare routine. Sun protection is paramount; daily use of a broad-spectrum sunscreen helps prevent UV-induced damage, preserving the treatment’s results. Incorporating hydrating serums, antioxidants, and gentle exfoliants can further support skin health.

Regular maintenance treatments, usually once every 6-12 months, can also help sustain the skin’s rejuvenated appearance. These sessions ensure continued collagen stimulation and overall skin vitality.

Microneedling pairs well with several other aesthetic treatments to enhance overall results. For instance, combining this treatment with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments can amplify skin rejuvenation effects, leading to even more radiant skin. The tiny channels created through this treatment also enhance the absorption of certain facial serums and products.

Additionally, some clients opt to combine treatments like chemical peels or laser therapy, staggered appropriately, to address a broader range of skin concerns and achieve comprehensive skin rejuvenation.

The longevity of treatment results varies among individuals, primarily depending on skin type, age, and skincare regimen. Typically, the immediate glow and skin refinement seen post-treatment can last for weeks. As for the collagen-boosting effects, they can be more enduring. With proper skin care and sun protection, the collagen remodeling induced by microneedling can continue for months.

To ensure lasting results, periodic maintenance sessions, typically once or twice a year, can help. These boost sessions keep the skin’s collagen and elastin production active, preserving its youthful appearance.
