What is Medical Microneedling?

what is medical microneedling?Medical Microneedling is an incredible treatment. It utilizes the ancient secrets of Acupuncture with the modern technology used by Dermatologists. Microneedling is a natural, safe, minimally invasive treatment. It triggers the production of collagen and elastin.

Medical Microneedling is an innovative cosmetic procedure. It uses a device covered with tiny, shallow needles to cause a ‘micro-injury’. This prompts the skin to stimulate collagen production.

The INNOpen™ device stimulates the replacement of surface skin cells, revealing younger, glowing skin underneath. It is a non surgical, non chemical treatment that is Health Canada approved. Microneedling also works with your own PRP (platelet-rich plasma). It creates microchannels to assists in absorption of serums to further increase collagen production.

As we know, the aging process creeps up on us slowly! Did you know at the age of 35 years old there has been a 50% loss of collagen? Be preventative by starting treatment early to keep the cells rejuvenated. Microneedling is color blind and can work on any tissue type and skin color.

I recommend having your course of Microneedling treatment in conjunction with Facial Acupuncture (click HERE to read more).  Facial Acupuncture can plump, lift and balance facial muscles. It can also help soften facial lines.

Medical Microneedling Benefits include:

-anti-aging and preventative for fine lines and wrinkles at any age

-improves texture and firmness for all types of skin

-acne scars and other scars

-reduces hyper-pigmentation, large pores, and cellulite

-hair rejuvenation for men and women
