MICRONEEDLING TREATMENT

MICRONEEDLING IN TORONTO AND NORTH YORK

Microneedling therapy, also referred as Skin Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), is one of the most innovative and effective treatments available for skin rejuvenation. Microneedling is intended to significantly improve the appearance of acne scars, aging or sun damaged skin, wrinkles and stretch marks. It has also been found to be beneficial in dramatically increasing the absorption of topically applied skin preparations.

HOW DOES MICRONEEDLING WORK?

The concept of microneedling is based on the skin’s natural ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical damage such as cuts, burns or other abrasions.

Immediately after an injury occurs to the skin, the body responds by creating new collagen and elastin fibres as well as other skin components to replace the damaged ones. Microneedling permits the controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair system by creating micro “injuries” beneath the surface of the skin, which triggers new collagen synthesis, yet protects the top layer of the skin and poses no risk of permanent scarring. The result is smoother, firmer and younger-looking skin.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

HOW IS THE TREATMENT ADMINISTERED?

Microneedling is performed by a professionally trained medical practitioner using a sterile microneedling device. The procedure is usually completed within 30 to 45 minutes, depending on the required treatment and the area being treated. Before treatment begins, a topical anaesthetic or local block is applied to the  skin to ensure a comfortable experience, with minimal pain.

After the anaesthetic takes effect, the practitioner gently rolls the device over the skin to puncture the outer layers of the skin and create miniscule subcutaneous injuries. These microscopic puncture wounds stimulate the production new collagen and elastin, a process which may last for up to a year, yet they heal in less than an hour, with no bruising.

WHAT TO EXPECT POST-TREATMENT

Following the procedure, the skin will be pink or reddish and flushed in appearance, similar to mild sunburn. You may also experience some skin tightness and a mild sensitivity to touch on the area being treated. This sensation will diminish greatly a few hours after the treatment, and the skin will heal completely within 24 hours. Several days later, there is barely any evidence that the procedure has taken place.

HOW QUICKLY ARE RESULTS VISIBLE?

Visible signs of skin rejuvenation can be seen just 6 to 8 weeks following the microneedling treatment, and these results can continue in the following months for up to a year.

A course of three sessions, at 6- to 8-week intervals, is usually recommended to achieve optimum results; however, immediate improvement is noticeable after just one treatment.

IS MICRONEEDLING SAFE?

Microneedling treatment does not involve injections and therefore allergic reactions and side effects are unlikely. It is minimally invasive, heals rapidly with little or no downtime (maximum 24 hours), and requires only simple after-care. It should be noted, however, that small amounts of pinpoint bleeding in individuals with thin skin may occur and should be considered normal.

EFFECTIVE USES OF MICRONEEDLING TREATMENT

Microneedling is especially effective for signs of aging such as wrinkles, fine lines and crow’s feet. Because the treatment induces the production of collagen, it can improve the appearance of scars, especially indented acne scars or chicken pox scars. It can also help treat pigmentation issues, including both hyperpigmentation and hypopigmentation. Microneedling can also visibly improve skin radiance, volume and firmness, resulting in smoother, fresher and younger-looking skin.

IS MICRONEEDLING THE RIGHT TREATMENT FOR ME?

Microneedling can be safely performed on all skin colours and types. There is no risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, as the melanin-producing cells (melanocytes) remain intact during the procedure, as does the overall structure of the skin, and it does not affect the naturally heightened wound healing response in your skin.

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS OR RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH MICRONEEDLING?

Side effects experienced with microneedling are very minimal and usually subside within 24 hours. They can include some redness, stinging, itching, tightness and slight peeling. Microneedling is a virtually no-risk, natural and effective treatment to improve volume and firmness of the skin and even out skin tone and texture.

    I have been very self conscious of the brown spots on my face from sun exposure. I have tried all sorts of lightening and medicated creams with no success. I particularly had one brown spot on my cheekbone that was particularly big. I went in for my first IPL treatment at Vita and after one treatment , I saw great results. The stubborn big brown spot on my cheek disappeared and my overall face was brighter . The technician and the staff were very professional and knowledgable. I am scheduled for another IPL treatment this week and looking forward to having great looking skin for the summer. I only wish I had taken a before and after shot to show the great improvement. Its a state of the art facility . I would definitely recommend Vita Cosmetic and Laser Clinic to all my friends and family.

    I really enjoyed this spa. Nurses, doctors and staff are amazing. I tried plasma therapy on my face and I got some skin care products. Very reasonable price, very good results. A bit challenging to find parking depending on the time of the day. I recommend this place.

    I recently visited Vita Cosmetic Clinic for a consultation. From the moment I walked through the doors I was greeted so warmly by Mar. The staff went out of their way to ensure that I was comfortable and well taken care of. The clinic itself is impeccable - it so well designed and the atmosphere was just lovely. Everyone was so friendly and made me feel right at home. I appreciated all the knowledge and care that was taken during my consultation. Dr. Delgado was so kind and informative. He made me feel comfortable with my options - and was honest with what procedures would work best for me. I look forward to returning to the clinic and would recommend Vita Cosmetic and Laser clinic to anyone looking to get honest, friendly and knowledgeable service!

    I have been looking for a good treatment for fat reduction in my belly. I visited 2 places before that offered me different very expensive options. I came to VITA for a third opinion. I was assessed by a doctor. I was in shock to realized I may have a hernia in my belly and that fat reduction is not the right option for me at this point. I was in shock that nobody told me that before. The doctor ordered some tests to confirm the hernia. I am so happy that I came here and someone told me the truth. I saved lots of $$$ and most importantly I was diagnosed with something that I may have had for so long. Why is so hard to find a good place with high standards and ethics!?!?

    I absolutely recommend this clinic. I got fillers in my face. The doctor did the assessment and provided the treatment. Very meticulous. Different from other spas I visited before. Very happy with the results. Same doctor did botox to my friend. Not too much, not too little. The right number of units of botox. Great coffee! And the place is beautiful!

    I’ve been a client for many years at several medical aesthetic clinics. While they may offer competitive pricing it ends there.If you are looking for a clinic that provides a wide variety of services using new and current state of the art technologies, treatments done by a physician who understands facial anatomy and physiology, technicians who are well- trained, medical grade sterility and cleanliness without feeling institutional, and a staff that gets to know you personally and provides real customer service, you have found the right place.I have had several treatments provided to me over the past 8 months and each have been provided with personal care and attention to detail. My experience has been so overwhelming positive that I will not be returning to my former clinic and will no longer feel comfortable going anywhere else. I would highly recommend anyone looking for an exceptional medical aesthetics clinic to visit Vita Cosmetic and Laser Clinic.
