Microneedling (also known as Medical Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy) is a non-surgical and non-ablative procedure used to treat various skin conditions such as aging (wrinkles, laxity), scarring (acne, surgical), hyper-pigmentation, cellulite and hair loss.
Microneedling technology (automated pens or rollers) use very fine, sterile needles to puncture the skin creating a controlled would. Each puncture creates a channel that triggers the body to fill these microscopic wounds by producing new collagen and elastin. The resulting micro-channels also aid in infusing therapeutic serums, allowing for greater penetration and increasing overall efficacy of active ingredients. Microneedling downtime is minimal, however most patients are red for about 12-24 hours post treatment.
Best results are seen in a series, with the amount of treatments needed varying depending on skin condition and concerns. A complimentary consultation with one of our skin health experts can answer any further questions about this treatment.
We are proud to offer Microneedling with Inno Pen, one of the few microneedling devices that are licensed by Health Canada.
