Skin Rejuvenation Services
At The Beach Cosmetic Clinic we offer non surgical rejuvenation treatments to help restore a more youthful, radiant looking complexion. Over time our skin starts to become slack and lose its radiance and elasticity. Due to the aging process from stress, diet, UV exposure and from other environmental factors our skin becomes thinner. This wear and tear over the years results in wrinkles, sagging and discolouration to the skin. Skin rejuvenation treatments help encourage new healthy looking skin by addressing the underlying cause. At The Beach Cosmetic Clinic we can create a treatment plan to specifically achieve optimal, long lasting results through a combination of skincare, ZO® Peels, Dermal fillers, BOTOX®, Micro-needling and Platelet-Rich-Plasma Skin and Hair Restoration.
Treatment Length: 30 to 60 minutes depending on area.

The ideal candidate
Most individuals who are seeking complete facial rejuvenation, reduced appearance of scars and wrinkles, reduced pore size, and increased skin tightness with minimal downtime are candidates for microneedling. If you are pregnant/breastfeeding you are not a candidate for this treatment.
Preparing for treatment
Please avoid tanning for 2 weeks prior to treatment. We also advise that you stop skincare products containing Retinol, Vitamin C, or prescription tretinoins for 1- 2 weeks prior unless otherwise directed by your healthcare professional. If you have any active lesions on your skin we do ask that you re-schedule your appointment once fully healed so we can treat the entire face adequately.
The treatment process and aftercare
Your skincare specialist will first remove makeup and cleanse the skin. A topical numbing agent will be applied to the treatment areas for approximately 10 minutes before it is removed and the skin is cleansed again. Sterile, medical-grade hyaluronic acid will be applied to your skin and microneedled into the skin using our state-of-the-art, Health Canada Approved, microneedle device. A mild pricking or buzzing sensation may be felt during treatment, but it should not be very uncomfortable. After microneedling is complete a hyaluronic acid mask will be applied for approximately 10 minutes to soothe the skin which may feel tight and warm.
Post-treatment you may experience mild redness, swelling, and peeling for 3-7 days. You may not exercise or go in pools, hot tubs, and saunas on the day of treatment, but may return to your normal routine the following days. Avoid Advil for 1-week post-treatment. Do not use products containing Vitamin C, Retinol, or prescription tretinoins until the redness and swelling have subsided. You must wear sunscreen daily post-treatment as your skin will be sensitive to UV exposure. Your specialist will provide you with thorough post-care instructions.
Benefits of the treatment
Since microneedling boosts collagen and elastin production in the skin, microneedling can help reduce the visible depth of acne scarring, this award winning treatment is beneficial to any skintype. Multiple sessions of microneedling treatments are extremely beneficial for those looking to address the appearance of acne scars, wrinkles and fine lines and overall skin rejuvenation.
Hair Restoration with Platelet-Rich-Plasma
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is an innovative, non-surgical solution for men and women experiencing hair loss and miniaturized hair growth, in which strands of hair become finer and finer with age. To obtain PRP (platelet-rich plasma) a sample of blood is drawn in and spun in a centrifuge to separate out the platelets in plasma, which are rich in growth factors. The PRP is then injected into the scalp to stimulate hair growth and promote healing. After a series of four treatments, you can expect to achieve a noticeably fuller, thicker head of hair.
Ideal For: Thinning Hair, Hair Loss
Treatment Length: 60 minutes
Areas for Treatment: Scalp
Who is an ideal candidate?
Most healthy individuals seeking a thicker, full head of hair are ideal candidates for PRP hair restoration. If you have an autoimmune disorder, bleeding disorder, or are pregnant/breastfeeding you are not a candidate for this treatment.
What do I need to do to prepare?
We ask that you increase hydration for 48 hours prior to treatment to ensure plasma quality. Do not take blood thinners or Advil for 48 hours prior. Please avoid tanning for 2 weeks prior to treatment. You should wash your hair with your normal shampoo prior.
What can I expect during and after treatment?
The nurse will draw a small sample of your blood and place it in the centrifuge for 10 minutes. Once spun, the PRP is separated from other blood components and is ready for injection. The scalp is cleansed and the PRP is injected using needles and/or microneedled into the scalp where the hair follicles are.
Post treatment you may experience a headache, tenderness, bruising, and swelling of the treatment areas. These symptoms last approximately 3 days for most people. You may take Tylenol if needed, but avoid Advil for 1 week post treatment.You may not wash your hair, exercise or go in pools, hot tubs, and saunas the day of treatment, but may return to your normal routine the following days.
Platelet-Rich-Plasma Skin Restoration
Platelet-Rich Plasma skin restoration uses the power of platelets, growth factors, and other plasma proteins contained within your own blood. The procedure is based on the natural growth properties of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) contained within your own blood which promotes tissue healing and new tissue growth. To obtain PRP a small sample of your blood is drawn and separated using a centrifuge. The obtained PRP is loaded with platelets containing powerful growth factors that are microneedled or injected into the skin to promote new structural protein synthesis resulting in complete skin restoration giving you a plump, radiant, and youthful complexion.
Ideal For: Acne Scarring, Dull Skin, Uneven Skin Tone, Uneven Skin Texture, Skin Laxity, Facial Volume Loss, Fine Lines, and Wrinkles, Under Eye Hollows and Darkness
Areas for Treatment: Under-eye, nasolabial folds (smile lines), Face, Neck, Dècolletè, and Hands
