How Does it Work?
THE KEY TO MORE RADIANT SKIN IS COLLAGEN PRODUCTION.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that stimulates your natural collagen production. The SkinPen is an FDA Health Canada approved microneedling device which causes controlled micro-channels that stimulate the body’s natural wound healing process. This stimulates the healing response of the deeper layers and encourages your skin to make new, collagen-rich tissue. The micro injuries trigger the release of your body’s natural cytokines and growth factors that lead to remodelling of your skin do collagen and elastin. This treatment allows active ingredients from your skin care products to penetrate the deepest layer of the skin to deliver even more powerful results.
What to Expect
After a thorough consultation with a highly trained staff, we will assess your skin type and discuss your microneedling treatment options, answering any questions you might have. Whether it’s acne scars, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation or general ageing prevention.
Microneedling treatments include a topical numbing cream that is left on for 30 minutes; this will ensure you won’t feel a thing. Most client reported feeling of tingling and heat on the treated area due to increased blood flow to the area. Aside from the needling part, the overall facial is refreshing and relaxing.
Optimize Your Results
LET’S WORK TOGETHER TO SEE THE CHANGES YOU DESERVE.
For truly visible results, we recommend a minimum of 4 to 6 treatments to continually build your collagen and elastin. Each treatment is based four weeks apart.
TIP: THIS TREATMENT CAN BE COMBINED WITH PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP) TO FURTHER BRIGHTEN AND HEAL YOUR SKIN.
Recovery time for microneedling is minimal. Thanks to the powerful skin stimulation, expect some mild redness and swelling for 24 hours post treatment before the healing begins and your new, glowing skin starts to reveal itself. Your skin will also be more sensitive to the sun post treatment, so ensure you apply a medical grade SPF.
Avoid physical activity for at least 12 hours post treatment to avoid excess redness and swelling. For the first seven days after your treatment use calming balms and creams only.
Downtime: 1 day
Treatment time: 45 minutes (including numbing time)
