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
- Overly large pores
- Stretch marks
- Acne scars
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.
