Microneedling

Using the Dermapen™, a precisely-spaced micro-needling device, thousands of invisible and virtually painless perforations are made in the skin. By creating these microscopic channels in the skin and causing a controlled injury, the body responds by increasing the formation of new collagen as well as releasing growth factors that promote enhanced skin tone and improve scar repair and healing.

This results in the skin becoming firmer and regaining its elasticity, fine lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced, pores become finer and the overall condition of the skin improves. It can also be used to treat acne scarring to improve the skin’s overall appearance.

The procedure involves the application of a topical anesthetic 30 to 45 minutes before the treatment is done. The actual micro-needling procedure takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. Growth factors and Hyaluronic Acid are applied to the skin during the treatment and penetrate through the micro-perforations to assist with skin rejuvenation and wound healing. This is followed by a calming mask. Medical make up is then applied to camouflage any redness that may be present. Downtime is minimal and the skin may feel warm for the first night after the procedure but generally improves by the following day. Redness and slight flaking may be present for up to 2 to 3 days, although this is easily covered with makeup so no time away from work is required.

You will notice an immediate improvement in your skin. For the best results, we recommend a total of six treatments, each spaced 2-6 weeks apart. Booster treatments can be done yearly as maintenance.
