Micro needling, is also called collagen induction therapy. Collagen is an essential protein that helps skin looking youthful, firm, and supple. Aging causes the decline of collagen in the skin, contributing to wrinkles and other signs of aging. Micro needling actually induces the production of new collagen in the skin, known as neocollagenesis.
Micro needling also encourages the growth of fibroblasts, epithelial and endothelial cells, which results in even skin tone and a healthy overall glow.
Micro-needling, is a minimally invasive skin treatment in which tiny micro needle channel punctures in a precise pattern in the top layer of skin at various depths that can be adjusted by the Certified technician depending on area being treated and damage to area being treated. The depth ranges from 0.5mm to 2.0 depth.
We chose to use the Eclipse MicroPen at the Fort Mcmurray Laser Lounge because it delivers greater efficiency and superior clinical results while maintaining the highest level of safety for both the patient and provider with disposable one patient use tips.
The ease of use with the MicroPen makes every treatment very comfortable for the patient.
For best results we recommend treatments in a series of 4 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart.
We can perform the micro needling treatments using hyaluronic acid to increase moisture in the skin.
We often encourage combining treatments such as Venus Freeze, IPL, and or Hydra-Facial for optimum results.
It’s up to you in the end if you choose to just have a stand-alone treatment that also offers great results.
Your skin post treatment will continue to improve for up to 6 months post treatment.
