Medical Grade Micro-Needling
Micro-needling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that helps minimize the signs of ageing, improves the appearance of acne scars and rejuvenates ageing skin. The SkinPen microneedling device causes controlled micro-injuries that stimulate the body’s natural wound healing process. The micro-injuries trigger the release of cytokines and growth factors that lead to remodelling of collagen and elastin. Studies have shown microneedling to boost collagen production by up to 400% over a course of 3-6 treatments.
NOTE: Micro-needling requires homecare preparation. All SkinPen treatments include an FDA approved single use head and post treatment kit. Course prices available upon request.
Is there any downtime and will the treatment hurt?
A topical anesthetic is typically applied prior to a SkinPen procedure. This allows for a comfortable experience for most people. Generally, patients report feeling just the slight vibration of SkinPen during the procedure.
The total healing time depends on each individual. Most patients have some slight swelling and redness/pinkness (like a mild to moderate sunburn) for 48 hours following the microneedling procedure. Some people may see their skin return to normal in about 24 hours.
Micro-Needling With Meso-Therapy Serum
Meso-therapy is a procedure where vitamins, minerals and amino acids are injected into the mesodermal layer of the skin. The same medical grade serum is now available at The Advanced Skin clinic post SkinPen Micro-needling.
