Approved by Health Canada, Dermaroller® offers a scientific solution for the most common symptoms of aging through a process commonly known as Micro-needling. Micro-needling, or Collagen Induction Therapy, is a non-ablative skin treatment used to treat fine lines, acne scars, photodamage and will improve the skin’s overall tone and texture. This treatment is also completely safe to do if you are pregnant.
What does Micro-needling do?
+ Minimizes fine lines and wrinkles
+ Tightens and lifts crepey skin
+ Improves skin volume
+ Improves the appearance of hyperpigmentation and hypopigmentation
+ Minimizes scars and stretch marks
+ Improves the absorption of topical gels and creams through the skin
What is Micro-needling?
Micro-needling uses a Dermaroller®—a mechanical tool with several tiny needles on the surface—to cause micro-injuries to the dermis and thereby stimulate the skin’s healing response. As the needles puncture the dermis, the skin reacts by triggering the production of collagen and elastin, plumping the skin, and reducing the appearance of scars, fine lines, and other textural abnormalities. Unlike chemical peels, dermabrasions, and some laser treatments, micro-needling is non-ablative, meaning it leaves the top layer of skin intact. This reduces the recovery period significantly and allows for treatment on virtually any part of the body.
Does micro-needling hurt?
As numbing cream is first applied to the treatment area, the procedure is virtually painless. Clients will, however, experience pressure sensations throughout.
How many Micro-needling treatments will I need?
While noticeable results can be obtained with a single treatment, we recommend 2-3 treatments spaced 6-8 weeks apart for optimal results.
When will I see results?
Visible signs of skin rejuvenation may take 6-8 weeks and will continue to improve over the following months. Following the procedure, the skin will appear pink or red for 24-48 hours, may feel tight, warm, or itchy—much like a sunburn—and minor bleeding or bruising may occur. Depending on the sensitivity of the skin, some clients may take up to a week to recover.
