Microneedling (also known as Medical Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy) is a non-surgical and non-ablative procedure used to treat various skin conditions such as aging (wrinkles, stretching), scarring (acne, surgical), hyper-pigmentation, cellulite and hair loss.
Microneedling technology (i.e. automated pens, rollers, etc.) use very fine, sterile needles to puncture the skin and to create micro-channels deep into the skin in order to stimulate new collagen/elastin production. The resulting micro-channels also aid in infusing therapeutic serums, allowing for greater penetration and increasing overall efficacy of active ingredients.
Not all “microneedling” is created equal. Devices such as InnoPen is Health Canada-approved medical devices. They give us the ability to alter the depth of the surgical grade needles, as well as control the number of repetitions per second.
The InnoPen is a new state of the art microneedling device, that induces collagen and elastin production which decreases wrinkles, fine lines, darkspots, stretch marks and acne scars.
How many sessions do I need?
Most people need between three and six treatments to see their final results. For younger people, one to two treatments are often enough. It all depends on your body’s unique cellular turnover rate, your age, and how you’ve treated your skin in the past.
