Acne Scar Reduction, Fine Lines & Wrinkle Reduction, Retexture & Brighten
Your body’s ability to heal itself is a marvelous scientific discovery. Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, harnesses this ability by creating microscopic ‘induced injuries’ on the skin to target collagen hidden within the dermal layers of the skin. Your skin rushes collagen closer to the surface in an act of self-healing resulting in a much plumper & fresh appearance. Completely non-invasive, extremely effective & minimal downtime.
If it’s your first visit with us, we will begin by conducting a consultation and skin assessment to ensure we have chosen the most suitable treatment for your skin type, skin concerns, and overall goals.
There are a few steps that our clients must complete in preparation for treatment. These include:
You may experience redness for the following two days after treatment. After initial treatment, your skin will begin the exfoliation process and start flaking. The full healing period may require 3-7 days post-treatment where your skin will appear mildly “sunburnt”.
Our clients report softer, dewier skin after their first session.
A full microneedling treatment series consists of 4-6 consecutive sessions over a period of 5-6 months. Maintenance is required once every 4- 6 months to follow.
Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure often used to treat a range of skin conditions. Alternatively referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy, its purpose is to induce the production of more collagen in the treated area. Amongst other healing properties, it is useful for treating light scarring and ageing concerns.
Your skin will appear more plump, refreshed and hydrated. You will also see a decrease in fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation ultimately improving the texture of your skin.
It is imperative to wear sunscreen to protect your skin after the treatment. Do not pick at your skin. Stay well hydrated (8-10 cups of water daily). Visit us for your follow up treatment as recommended during your consultation with our skin care expert.
After your first treatment, you will notice results 5-7 days after the procedure. For best results, a series of 4-6 treatments are required.
You may experience redness days after following your treatment. Once redness has subsided, there may be some scabbing and flaking of the skin. This is your body's natural elimination process of dead skin cells.
Slight skin irritation that’s often very mild and short-lived. More serious side effects are bleeding, infection, peeling and bruising.
