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 in order to help you restore a youthful glow to your skin. We are proud to now offer micro-needling 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 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 micro-needling is the right option for you is to speak with Dr. Sandy  in person. Please call 416-515-8808  today to schedule a consultation at our  office.

What Problems Can Micro-Needling Address?

Micro-needling 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 micro-needling treatment will improve your skin’s texture, tone, and color.

Your Micro-Needling Procedure

Micro-needing is performed using a pen-sized device containing about 12 small, sterile needles. Our nurse/medical aesthetician will use the micro-needling 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 micro-needling device, it will eliminate many of the common signs of age and wear. As a result, you will experience a more youthful, 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.

Benefits Of Micro-Needling

Micro-needling offers several important benefits compared with other facial rejuvenation options such as laser treatments or IPL photo facial treatments:

  • 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
  • Allows for optimization of topical drug delivery
