Restore Your Skin with Microneedling Technology

Looking for a skin procedure that is safe and minimally invasive while also helping reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles? Microneedling could be the right choice for you. The SkinPen® Precision System is the only Class II, FDA cleared microneedling device, engineered and manufactured in the US and approved by Health Canada. The SkinPen® Precision device promotes micro-injuries to the skin in order to stimulate the body’s natural wound healing process. The micro-injuries trigger the release of cytokines and growth factors allowing a boost of collagen and elastin fibers. This in return leaves your skin looking healthy and supple!

There are 3 phases to the Microneedling SkinPen® Precision process:

  • Phase I: Inflammation.
    Penetrating the skin, triggers your immune system to go into healing mode and increase the blood flow to then create new tissue.
  • Phase II: Proliferation.
    New granulation cells, and temporary (type III) collagen and elastin, which are part of the extracellular matrix, go to work healing the wound and creating a new blood vessel network
  • Phase III: Remodeling.
    New dermal tissues and blood vessels are created. The type III collagen in the new regenerated tissue is replaced with stronger type I collagen, allowing a tightening effect on the skin.


Why should you try the microneedling SkinPen® Precision System? Here are some reasons. For starters, it’s a simple and minimally invasive procedure that gives you many skin-enhancing benefits such as younger looking skin. You can expect to have a minimum of 3 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart (recommended for optimal results) and each one taking an average of 30-60 minutes per area. The microneedling SkinPen® Precision System is a comfortable treatment with minimal down time allowing you a quick recovery. We offer a topical numbing cream which is applied in the clinic 30 minutes before your microneedling procedure to help minimize any discomfort. During post-treatment, you will start to see full results anywhere from 3-6 months. Post treatment includes:

  • Mild to moderate redness (erythema)
  • Mild swelling (edema)
  • Some pinpoint bleeding can be normal


Over the next 24hrs patients generally report the area treated feeling warm, tight, dry or itchy. A specialized gel - non-cytotoxic hydrogel - formulated for patient comfort is included post-treatment.


PRE PROCEDURE

  • AVOID any resurfacing treatments min. 2 weeks prior
  • AVOID Botox or filler injections 2 weeks prior to treatment


POST PROCEDURE

  • AVOID the use of ANY products 24hrs post microneedling EXCEPT LIFT HG (given to you post-treatment)

  • It is normal to feel warm, have mild redness and swelling and mild pinpoint bleeding post-treatment
  • POST 24 hrs you may gently cleanse and use Rescue calming complex (second white tube) to calm skin.
  • After 24hrs you may begin using your skincare kit included with your package as directed by skin professional
