The concept of micro-needling is based on the skin’s natural ability to repair itself when it suffers physical damage such a cuts, burns, abrasions or other injuries. Immediately after an injury to the skin, our body begins the healing process, triggering new collagen synthesis. The micro-needling device that intentionally creates very superficial “micro-injuries” to the outermost layer of the skin to induce the healing process that includes new collagen production. Micro-needling has been shown to reduce the visibility of acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles; diminish hyper-pigmentation, and improve skin tone and texture, resulting in smoother, firmer, younger looking skin.
Before your treatment:
What to expect:
Micro-needling is performed using A PEN. The PEN micro-needling procedure is performed in a safe and precise manner with a single-use, sterile needle head. The treatment sessions usually takes about 30-60 minutes, depending on the area(s) being treated. Throughout the procedure, activated agents will be applied to stimulate rejuvenation process. Then a hydrating facial mask will be applied for hydration. After the procedure, your skin will be red with minimal swelling and/or bruising, and it might feel tight and sensitive to the touch. Although these symptoms may take 2-3 days to resolve completely, they will diminish significantly within a few hours after the treatment.

Risks of Micro-Needling:
Although majority of the clients do not experience any complications with micro-needling, it is important to understand the risks to exist. The micro-needling procedure is minimally invasive and uses a set of microneedles to inflict multiple, tiny, punctures/lacerations to the outermost layer of the skin. Because micro needling penetrates the skin, it inherently carries health risks, including but not limited to: infection, pigment/colour change, allergic reaction, persistent redness, itching, and/or swelling, pain, or scarring.
