Also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that involves repeatedly puncturing the skin with tiny, sterile needles (microneedling the skin), to generate new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer, more toned skin.
Microneedling is an effective treatment for anyone looking to improve the appearance of scars or stretch marks, minimize wrinkles, improve the quality and texture of your skin or treat acne/cystic acne. According to a 2008 study, skin treated with four microneedling sessions spaced one month apart produced up to a 400% increase in collagen and elastin six months after completing treatment.
Your skin will become more plump and smooth immediately and results will continue to improve over the following three weeks. Best results are seen by those who can commit to 3-4 consecutive treatments over 3-4 months.
We apply a numbing cream before the procedure to reduce any discomfort that may be felt.
Yes, the treatment is safe and our Eclipe Micropen Elite is Health Canada approved.
Needling is unique in that it does not damage the skin (non-ablative). The body’s regenerative properties build new natural collagen, elastin networks and a thicker epidermis with virtually no downtime. Your skin will be red post-treatment for approximately 48 hours. The surface will need to be protected with sunscreen for a minimum of 2 weeks following.
