Are you frustrated with the current appearance of your skin? Have you considered a skin rejuvenation treatment, but a highly invasive or complex treatment does not feel right for you? Microneedling may be the solution to your concerns! This minimally invasive treatment taps into your body’s own natural healing and tissue production processes. Explore the possibilities of this treatment during a consultation with us at Aesthetic Medicine & Veins in Mississauga, Ontario!
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling, otherwise known as collagen induction therapy, is a non-surgical and non-ablative skin rejuvenation treatment that restores the surface of your skin. This treatment encourages the productivity of collagen and elastin in your face. Collagen and elastin are fibers that are important to ensuring skin is taut and well-supported. This happens as microchannels are created on the skin. In addition to the new collagen being formed, capillaries are also formed, which promote blood flow needed to treat the most needy of areas.
Our microneedling treatments are performed with the InnoPen from Skin Health Canada. This device delivers consistent, even results. This handheld device can provide total skin rejuvenation for nearly all skin tones and types.
What Can Microneedling Do?
Microneedling offers a range of skin rejuvenation benefits. It can be used to address a range of concerns, such as:
- Acne scars
- Crow’s feet
- Dark spots
- Frown lines
- Sagging skin
- Smile lines
- Under eye bags
This diverse treatment can be used to treat nearly all skin tones and types, including sensitive skin.
What Happens During Microneedling Treatments?
Each treatment could be as short as a few minutes or as long as an hour, depending on the severity of the problem and the area or areas being treated. Our professional staff will provide you with all the information you need to properly prepare yourself and your skin for treatment.
During the treatment session, the InnoPen is utilized to deliver targeted treatment to the area. It stimulates collagen production, and there is minimal discomfort associated with the process. Once the device has stimulated your natural healing and production processes, everything is left up to your skin and body!
What Happens After Microneedling?
Microneedling is generally tolerated with minimal downtime required. Patients may experience redness in their skin following treatment, but this condition goes away within a few days. Skin rejuvenation can take place as early as two weeks, but long term results can last as long as six to eight months. For the best results, a series of treatments may be recommended.
