The treatment involves using a micropen to create controlled microscopic injuries in the skin to induce the collagen and promote healing. This treatment is also know as collagen induction therapy.  As the body produces more collagen it also strengthens the skins elastin resulting in the reduction of fine lines, acne scars, texture, tone and color of the skin.

What is Microneedling?

It sounds scary, but we promise it’s not! Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, is a relatively new and innovative procedure that uses a pen-like tool to create tiny micro-punctures in the skin that results in deep healing and rejuvenation.

As we age, collagen production drops and existing collagen is broken down. Microneedling boosts collagen production and strengthens skin elastin, resulting in the reduction of fine lines, acne scars, texture, tone, and colour of the skin. It’s fast, easy, and results are almost immediate!

How does it work?

A Microneedling tool (We use The Eclipse MicroPen, although some other practitioners will use a roller) is placed on the skin and delivers hundreds of micro-punctures to the area. A super hydrating serum is spread on the skin and the micro-punctures allow the active ingredients to penetrate the skin much more deeply than they would otherwise. These micro-injuries paired with healing and hydrating product increase collagen production and cell generation, leaving skin rejuvenated and youthful.

What is recovery like?

Immediately after treatment, the skin will show redness and mild inflammation. Some clients prefer to stay home during this time, so plan accordingly. Downtime will depend on factors such as number of passes, skin sensitivity, depth of penetration, and aftercare quality, however for most clients, it passes after about 24-48 hours. Clients MUST apply hydrating products regularly to speed up recovery and to achieve desired results. Aftercare instructions will be provided.

What can Microneedling treat?

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Skin tone issues
  • Skin pigmentation issues
  • Acne scars
  • Sun damage
  • Stretch marks
  • Enlarged pores

How fast will I see results?

Most clients notice smoother, more radiant skin after about 3-7 days, however, as your skin continues to heal and rejuvenate itself, best results are usually seen 4-6 weeks after the treatment.

How long will it last?

Although significant results can often be seen after a single treatment, most people opt to receive approximately 3-6 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart to reach optimal results, depending on the severity of the problems being treated (certain issues such as scarring often require more attention).

 

As we age, collagen production drops and existing collagen is broken down. This is what causes fine lines, wrinkles, and drooping skin. Lifestyle habits such as sun exposure, tanning beds, smoking, and alcohol consumption aid in expediting the process. Unfortunately, science has not yet found a way to permanently halt signs of aging, however, regular maintenance and proper skin care routines can slow it down drastically and help you retain a vibrant, youthful appearance.

This is why after the initial series of treatments, depending on factors such as age, skin type, quality of aftercare, and lifestyle, maintenance every 6-12 months may be required, although this varies per client.

What is the difference between Microneedling and a "Vampire Facial," and do you offer both?

The “Vampire Facial,” or a PRP (platelet-rich plasma) facial as made popular by Kim Kardashian, is often used interchangeably with Microneedling in articles and online. However, they are different procedures. While the Microneedling treatment uses hyaluronic acid serum to hydrate and boost your skin, a PRP Facial involves taking a small blood sample, separating the platelets and plasma from the rest, and using it as a serum. We do not currently offer PRP Facials, however, stay tuned as we hope to add it to our growing list of services in the near future.

Does it hurt?

We use a numbing cream before the treatment to minimize discomfort for our clients. Most people find it is not painful, and describe it as a mild sandpaper-like sensation.

Is it safe?

Yes! While every client has unique skin needs and requirements, the treatment is safe for most skin types. The Eclipse MicroPen is customizable and its safety and control features lead to predictable, consistent results. It is more reliable than dermal rollers, and its high-speed motor allows for a faster, more efficient treatment.

What are aftercare requirements?

Immediately post-treatment, your skin will be completely “open,” so there is a strict aftercare routine that MUST be followed. The purchase of certain skincare products for home recovery and maintenance is mandatory for this treatment.

Mandatory Home Care: Max facial cleanser | Hylauronic serum | Prevention Plus or I Rescue Recovery Balm

Avoid direct sunlight, products that contain AHA, Retinol, or other similar ingredients, makeup/makeup brushes, and excessive sweating to avoid irritation and/or infection.

More detailed aftercare instructions will be provided to you by your esthetician.
