As one of the top advanced Aesthetic Beauty Clinics in The Greater Toronto area, we are pleased to offer Microneedling treatments in Toronto at Philosophy of Beauty. With the latest, cosmetic medical technologies and a customized approach, we help each client achieve flawless and radiant skin. One of Philosophy of Beauty’s most talked about anti-aging treatments is Microneedling, also known as skin needling, or CIT, (collagen induction therapy.) It’s completely natural and powerfully rejuvenating for your skin.

What Is Microneedling?

Microneedling has established a strong reputation for safe and effective skin repair and remodeling. In recent years, celebrities, and everyone else has been talking about the amazing transformation that microneedling creates in their complexion. You may have heard of the “Dermaroller” which is one of the devices that made this multifaceted therapy easy to apply in aesthetic clinics around the world.

A small, handheld device that contains many tiny, fine, short needles are rolled or pressed over the skin during a microneedling session. This creates controlled, micro-punctures that kick-start the skin into its natural repair and regeneration mode. Though it may sound daunting, the process is virtually painless, and the results can be dramatic.

Microneedling in Toronto

The ability to stimulate collagen and elastin is the key to strong skin and the primary appeal of Microneedling. Because the process triggers new skin cells to generate, it helps to noticeably reduce fine lines, crow’s feet, and even deep wrinkles on the face or body.

Since your body’s natural collagen production levels will decrease with age, the pinpoint stimulation of Microneedling targets those tightening, strengthening factors, thereby visibly improving the tell-tale signs of aging skin.

In particular, CIT is considered safe technology for people who have dark skin as they have a higher risk of post-inflammatory pigmentation using some other treatments. The therapy uses your body’s own natural healing process to tighten, smooth, and rejuvenate your complexion.

Many people are looking for naturally beautiful, non-surgical cosmetic options and microneedling helps them reach their goals without any laser technology or chemicals involved.

Improve the Appearance of Scars

Microneedling has been used to improve the appearance of visible scars on the skin for many years. The tiny needles can break collagen bundles in the superficial layer of the dermis that are responsible for the tight, raised, or shiny appearance of scars. It also promotes collagen production, (collagenesis), new capillary form ation, (angiogenesis) and new skin cells to be created which in turn helps to minimize the appearance and texture of scars and wrinkles.

Reverse Sun Damage and Pigmentation

By stimulating collagen growth with Microneedling, the effects of sun damage and discoloration can be reversed, including the hyperpigmentation that comes with melasma. The process of Microneedling breaks up melanin in the skin allowing it to be absorbed into the bod y which makes it an effective treatment for brown spots and pigmentation concerns.

Reduce Pore Size

Microneedling stimulates collagen in and around the pores, which causes them to plump and appear smaller, or closed. Increased hydration of the skin which results from this treatment will also reduce the visibility of pores.

Improvethe Performanceof Skin Care Products

Microneedling helps our quality skin care products to penetrate the skin more efficiently, allowing you to reap the full benefits of any product. The micro-injuries in the skin effectively act like channels to the inner dermis where topical products can’t normally go. This allows any nourishing serums like hydrating hyaluronic acid to penetrate and absorb effectively.

Can Be Performed All Over the Body

Microneedling treatment is not exclusive to the face. In fact, many areas of the body which show stretch marks or acne scars like the abdomen, chest, back, and buttocks can be resurfaced with microneedling treatments.

Natural Looking Results

Because Microneedling utilizes your body’s own natural healing mechanisms, the results are very natural looking. You will simply look like a more toned, rejuvenated you.

Since your body’s natural collagen production levels will decrease with age, the pinpoint stimulation of Microneedling targets those tightening, strengthening factors, thereby visibly improving the tell-tale signs of aging skin.

The process of Microneedling is extremely effective for reducing the appearance of scars as it breaks down old scar tissue and stimulates the skin cells to multiply through activating the body’s natural wound-healing process. The creation of hundreds of in visible micro-injuries results in increased cell turnover, collagen, and elastin production, without damaging the epidermis. The result is the stimulation of new tissue layers of elastin and collagen fibers, as well as neovascularization or, improved blood supply. Within days of treatment, the skin begins to plump and thicken, thereby reducing the appearance of scars, wrinkles, and fine lines.

Microneedling is safe and effective to use on all skin types and colors because the epidermis is not damaged during treatment. If you have acne scars, stretch marks, fine facial lines, or deeper wrinkles, Microneedling can do a lot to improve the tone and texture of your skin.

The risk of post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation is minimal, however, people who have used Accutane, (isotretinoin) within the last 12 months, have skin injuries, radiation skin treatment within the last year, have herpes simplex in the area of concern, a history of keloid or hypertrophic scars , or who are pregnant, may not be suitable candidates for Microneedling.

We love that there are no negative side effects of Microneedling, and our patients do too! Some people report minor, temporary discomfort from the treatment and com pare the increased skin sensitivity to sunburn. Numbing cream can be applied before your skin needling session, which will drastically reduce any chance of pain.

Most people will notice redness and mild swelling similar to a slight sunburn for 24-48 hours after the treatment and there may be slight pinpoint bleeding and/or bruising visible. Skin will be noticeably smoother and more radiant within a week or two and results continue to show as changes develop over time.

The risk of post-treatment infections is extremely low given that the tiny wounds close quickly, and the treatment is done in a clean, clinical setting.

The number of treatments recommended will be customized for each, unique patient during their initial consultation.

Microneedling can be safely repeated every 4-6 weeks as needed. Collagen induction requires at least 3 treatments in most cases, while scar reduction typically requires between 3 and 6.

Ongoing professional skin care is advised to maintain healthy skin and follow-up treatments may be desired after the initial series is completed. Use of a specialized home Derma roller will enhance your result s-ask us how you can get yours!

Post-treatment skin sensitivity and redness may last up to 48 hours. We recommend that our clients refrain from applying makeup for 24 to 72 hours after the procedure. It is also important to use a quality, mineral-based broad-spectrum sunblock with SPF 25 or higher in the days following the procedure. This may also be incorporated into the regular skincare routine to protect skin from sun damage and premature aging.

You should continue to treat your skin gently for three days after Microneedling, after which you may resume your normal skincare regimen. At Philosophy of Beauty, we are proud to carry a wide variety of medical-grade skin care products to ensure the very best in ongoing healing and nourishment for your skin. We’ll be happy to get you set up with an effective, at-home system for a glowing complexion.

You may want to consider Infini RF Microneedling, which combines radiofrequency energy skin tightening with the natural collagen-stimulating power of CIT. This exciting, new, combination device delivers controlled heat through the micro-channels we create in the epidermis. Tiny defined zones of fractionated coagulation (tightening) accelerate collagen and elastin fibre creation under the surface.

We also love the combination of microneedling with PRP. Platelet-rich plasma or platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) uses your body’s natural healing and cell growth factors to rapidly regenerate tissue, help form stronger skin, and promote quicker healing after facial treatments. PRP for the face can help to:

  • Reduce facial folds
  • Encourage survival of fat cells
  • Tighten and rejuvenate skin
  • Accelerate post-operative or post-treatment healing
  • Fight infection
  • Replenish healthy tissue, collagen, and blood vessels
