Microneedling

*As one of the top advanced Aesthetic Beauty Clinics in The Greater Toronto area, we are pleased to offer the latest, cosmetic medical technologies and customized approach for each client. One of Philosophy of Beauty’s most talked about anti-aging treatments is Microneedling.*

What is Microneedling?

*Microneedling, is also known as collagen induction therapy, skin needling or, “Dermaroller” has established a strong reputation for safe and effective skin repair and remodelling. In recent years, celebrities and everyone else have been talking about the amazing transformation that microneedling has created in their complexion. A small, hand held device which contains many tiny, fine, short needles is rolled or pressed over the skin during a microneedling session. This creates controlled, micro-punctures which kickstart the skin into its natural repair and regeneration mode. Though it may sound daunting, the process is virtually painless and results are dramatic.*

The Benefits of Microneedling:

*The ability to stimulate growth of collagen and elastin which is the key to youthful-looking skin, is 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 deep wrinkles on the face or body.  Since the body’s natural collagen production levels decrease with age, production stimulated by Microneedling helps to tighten loose skin, thereby visibly improving the tell-tale signs of aging skin. In particular, it is a very safe technology for people who have dark skin as they have a higher risk post inflammatory pigmentation using other treatments that damage skin. The treatment uses your body’s own natural healing process to tighten, smooth and rejuvenate the skin. Many people are looking for naturally beautiful, non-surgical cosmetic options.*

Treatments

1Improve 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 appearance of scars. It also promotes collagen production, (collagenesis), new capillaries to be formed, (angiogenesis) and new skin cells to be created which in turn helps to minimize the appearance and texture of scars and wrinkles.*
2Reverse 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 body which makes it an effective treatment for brown spot and pigmentation concerns.*
3Reduces pore size
*Microneedling stimulates collagen in and around the pores, which causes them to plump and appear shrunken, or closed. Increased hydration of the skin which results from this treatment will also reduce the visibility of pores.*
4Improves the performance of 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.This allows any nourishing serums or products such as and hydrating hyaluronic acid to penetrate and absorb effectively.*
5Can 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.*
6Natural looking results
*Due to the fact that Microneedling utilizes the body’s own natural healing mechanisms, the results are very natural looking. You will simply look like a younger, healthier you.*

How Does Microneedling Work?

*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 by activating the body’s natural wound healing process. Creation of hundreds of invisible micro-injuries results in increased cell turnover, collagen and elastin production without damaging the epidermis. The result is creation of new tissue layers of elastin and collagen fibers, as well as neovascularization or, improved blood supply. Within days of treatment, skin begins to plump and thicken, thereby reducing the appearance of scars, wrinkles and fine lines.*

Frequently asked questions

1Who is a good candidate for Microneedling?
*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.*
*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.*
2What are the side effects and risks of Microneedling?
*There are no negative side effects of Microneedling. Some patients report minor and temporary discomfort from the treatment and compare the increased skin sensitivity to a sunburn. Numbing cream can be applied prior to the treatment, which drastically minimizes or eliminates any pain. Most people will notice redness and mild swelling similar to slight sunburn for 24-48 hours after the treatment and there may be slight pinpoint bleeding and/or bruising. Skin will be noticeably smoother and more radiant within a week or two and results continue to show as changes occur in the skin. 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.*
3How many treatments are required?
*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, 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 required after the initial series is completed. Use of a specialized home Dermaroller will enhance results- ask about how you can get yours!*
4Post-treatment skin care:
*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 incorporating into the regular skincare routine in order to protect skin from sun damage and premature aging.*
*Patients should continue to treat the skin gently for three days after Microneedling, after which they may resume their 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.*
