What is microneedling?
SkinPen is the world’s first FDA-approved microneedling device and represents a modern iteration of a tried and true technique for facial rejuvenation and scar improvement. Microneedling uses a vibrating/oscillating head of tiny needles to cause controlled micro-injuries that stimulate your body’s natural wound healing and regenerative process.
How long will the results of microneedling last?
Optimal results can take 1-3 treatments and these treatments can be separated by 30-45 days.
Who is microneedling right for?
There are several indications for microneedling. In younger patients, it can be used to refresh the skin, adding thickness and improving texture from the healing process. In patients with fine lines and wrinkles, SkinPen microneedling is excellent for smoothing out the skin and restoring a consistent texture. Finally, in patients with acne damaged skin, post-surgical scars, or scars as a result of injury, microneedling can restart the healing process, allowing the skin to naturally fill in divots, improve discolouration and break down raised scars. Other common areas that can be treated with microneedling include the hands and areas of superficial cellulite.
What are the risks of microneedling?
One of the significant benefits of microneedling is its very low risk profile. The most common treatment responses experienced are dryness, rough skin, tightness, redness, itching, peeling, discomfort, tenderness, and burning. These conditions resolve over time without any further complications. Our team is available to address any pre- or post-treatment concerns. At our office, Dr. Somogyi and Dr. Jalil work closely with our Aesthetic Nurse in reviewing all consultations to ensure that microneedling is the appropriate treatment for you and that expected results are ideal. Treatments are performed by our Aesthetic Nurse.
Microneedling is designed to cause enough trauma to the skin to elicit the healing and regenerative process, but not enough to cause significant downtime. A topical anaesthetic cream is applied on the area to be treated. Most patients find the treatment itself to be completely painless. Each treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.
The skin will appear slightly pink to red immediately post-procedure, similar to a mild to moderate sunburn. Normal activity can be resumed immediately after treatment. Dryness and redness gradually decrease over 1-3 days following the procedure. A soothing aftercare gel will be provided with each treatment to help minimize dryness and redness and improve the overall result. In many cases, a custom aftercare skin regimen will be recommended following treatment.
When it comes to skin rejuvenation, in-office treatments are one piece of the puzzle. To achieve the best possible result, we highly recommend pairing your treatments with complementary skincare that can be used at home before, between, and after your treatments to first prepare your canvas, then boost and maintain your results.
In combination with your microneedling treatments, we recommend incorporating Skinbetter Science Trio Rebalancing Moisture Treatment™ to nourish your skin and help restore a compromised skin barrier. To even out your skin tone, follow up with Skinbetter Science Tone Smart, a silky tone-adapting compact that provides a hint of colour and mineral protection against UV damage. These products can be applied two days after your microneedling treatments.
