Also known as collagen induction therapy.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment to rejuvenate the skin. A device with fine needles creates tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin. This triggers the skin to create new collagen and elastin.
The result? Improved texture and firmness of the skin, a reduction in scars, pore size and stretch marks. It is safe for all skin types and colors.
Although it may seem like a new trend, Microneedling has been used in beauty skincare of over 50 years. At O’Neill Cosmetic Dermatology in Mississauga, we combine Microneedling with radiofrequency using our Venus Viva II device. We also use Microneedling with infusion of hylauronic acid rich serum known as Skin Beauty Booster.
How it works
After a thorough consultation, our medical aesthetician will use the device to puncture hundreds of tiny holes in the skin. The needles create “micro channels” that allow radiofrequency, or skincare products, such as potent serums, to penetrate and absorb into the deeper layers of the skin to deliver powerful results. The tiny pinpricks act as a mini injury, which kicks the skin into healing mode and stimulates collagen and elastin production. This results in plumper skin, and improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks, scars and pores.
