Microneedling And PRP

The Bay Dermatology Centre offers a full range of patient-centered procedures.

At Bay Dermatology Centre, we offer the newest and most advanced nonsurgical facial rejuvenation treatments to help you restore a youthful glow to your skin. We are proud to now offer microneedling treatments.

Micro-needling, also referred to as collagen induction therapy, works to lift, tighten, and rejuvenate your skin. As a result of your treatment, you will achieve softer, younger skin with minimal downtime, especially when compared with laser treatments. This procedure can be performed as a facial and Dr. Sandy recommends it in conjunction with PRP treatment (Platelet Rich Plasma) for enhanced results.

The best way to determine whether microneedling is the right option for you is to speak directly with Dr. Sandy. Please call 416-515-8808  today to schedule a consultation at our  office.

What Problems Can Micro-Needling Address?

Microneedling is a versatile treatment that can address a wide range of skin conditions in the facial region, including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Creases
  • Overly large pores
  • Stretch marks
  • Acne scars
  • Hyperpigmentation

In addition, your microneedling treatment will improve your skin’s texture, tone, and color.

Your Microneedling Procedure

Microneedling is performed using a pen-sized device containing about 12 small, sterile needles. Our nurse/medical aesthetician will use the microneedling device to create a series of tiny incisions into your skin at varying depths based on your unique skin condition and aesthetic goals. These incisions will stimulate collagen production and create thousands of micro-channels in your skin which allow for better penetration and diffusion of anti-aging serums and creams.
As your skin heals from the minor incisions created by the microneedling device, it will eliminate many of the common signs of age and wear. As a result, you will experience a more youthful and revitalized skin appearance.

For best results, you will need to undergo 3-4 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart. To maintain long lasting results, you will need to come for one additional maintenance treatment every year.

  • Non-ablative procedure that keeps epidermis intact
  • Minimally invasive
  • Shorter recovery time
  • Minimizes risk of scarring
  • Works well with most skin types
  • Can be performed safely during the summer months
  • Stimulates collagen production
