Microneedling Treatment in Toronto

Microneedling Treatment in Toronto

Microneedling

Do you suffer from blemished, scarred, saggy, or wrinkled skin?

Are you tired of looking older than you are and wish your outside reflected your youthful interior?

If you suffer from any of these skin conditions and are looking for a solution to rejuvenate ageing, imperfect skin, then Microneedling may be the solution you’re looking for.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling in Toronto is a minimally invasive, non-surgical, cosmetic skincare treatment that addresses damaged skin. It involves a handheld tool containing small needles that is passed or rolled over the treatment area to puncture the skin’s uppermost layers, causing controlled, intentional damage and leaving behind small micro-breaks.

The damage provokes the body’s natural healing response and stimulates the production of elastin and collagen, resulting in smoother, healthier-looking, more youthful, and refreshed skin.

What conditions can Microneedling help?

Microneedling in Toronto is not for everyone, but it does help correct a long list of skin ailments.
Here at Skin6, we meet with every potential client and provide a consultation and health assessment to see if Microneedling is a good fit for you. Here are some examples of skin conditions amenable to care:

  • Acne scarring

  • Age damage

  • Blemishes

  • Discoloration and redness

  • Fine lines

  • Wrinkles

  • Saggy and sunken skin

  • Sun damage

  • Uneven complexion

  • And others

Getting Microneedling Treatment

At our beauty clinic, you can expect to be met by one of our professional medical aestheticians. We will have already reviewed your health history and ensured you have completed the pre-treatment requirements.

Your treatment session will begin with a thorough cleansing of the skin that will be treated that day. We do this to remove any lotions, oils, makeup and other debris that could affect the procedure.

Next, to reduce the discomfort of the microneedling, we will apply a topical numbing lotion or gel to reduce the pain sensation. It will remain on the skin for 30 to 45 minutes prior to treatment. Once the area is numb, the microneedling will begin.

We will use the microneedling roller or pen and move it around the treatment area. The small needles will move in a series of up-and-down motions to pierce the skin. This process will be repeated for minutes or hours, accommodating the area’s size and location.

The damage left behind will trigger the healing process, stimulating collagen and elastin production–leaving behind smoother, hydrated, rejuvenated skin.

Microneedling Aftercare

Even with the numbing agent, you may experience slight irritation during your microneedling. Once it is complete, you may experience some additional skin discomfort accompanied by red, swelling, or flaking skin.

Additional risk factors include the possibility of infection, bruising or scarring. We will provide a comprehensive set of post-treatment instructions personalized for your individual care.

Though microneedling is safe and effective, consult with your medical professional if you experience any complications beyond those mentioned above. Signs to look out for include fever, bleeding, and discharge.

Your Investment

They say beauty and youth are priceless! Here they come with a fee structure. For your microneedling session, you are looking at investing:

  • $350 per microneedling session or

  • $700 for a package of three sessions. (Buy two, and get the third free!)

We say the best investment you can make is in yourself so why not make it your best self?

Morpheus8

At Skin6: The Beauty Clinic, we proudly offer Morpheus8 treatment. It is considered the most advanced microneedling treatment on the market, as it is said to penetrate the deepest layers of the skin while combining the use of heat produced by radiofrequency waves to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, and coagulate fat resulting in tighter, firmer skin.

PRP Microneedling

We also offer the aptly named vampire microneedling or vampire facial. This innovative treatment uses platelets derived from your own blood (most often drawn from your arm), which after separation, are injected back into your own skin using the technology of microneedling.

It works in the same fashion as microneedling (using small, short, fine needles that prick the skin with the intention of triggering the injury and, in turn, the healing process in the skin treatment area to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles) but has the added benefit of the platelet-rich plasma.

This treatment type is highly regarded by celebrities and locals alike, who view it as the best anti-ageing treatment on the market.

Look forward to:

  • Skin cell turnover, revealing newer cells and a fresher, younger-looking face 

  • Softer skin free of blemishes, scarring, and sun damage

  • Smoother skin free of fine lines and wrinkles

  • Balanced skin tone and texture

This microneedling treatment is a little more complex and runs at a higher price point. Your investment in platelet-rich plasma microneedling is:

  • $700 per treatment or

  • $1400 for a package of three sessions (buy two, get the third free)

All of our skincare treatments are done at our modern, luxury beauty clinic by our highly educated and professionally trained medical aestheticians. We are driven by science and modern innovation and commit to staying informed of the latest advances in medical science and technology.

Each treatment is personalized and unique to the individual, with a health history and assessment completed before every treatment to help us make informed decisions on the care and well-being of the clientele. We will never push trendy procedures, rather offer a variety of options to suit you best, your skin, and your budget.

Located conveniently in Toronto at 802 Dundas Street West, we provide a vast collection of treatment options to help bring out your best self. We approach beauty holistically and make it our goal to get you on the right path to making your exterior shine as bright as your interior.

Microneedling treatments

What to expect on the day of your microneedling treatment?

Prior to starting your microneedling treatment, we suggest you book your appointment at least 2-3 months in advance of weddings, vacations or any other special occasions. 

  • Preparation: After the initial consultation, you would be advised to avoid certain medications, and skincare products to evade skin sensitivity. We recommend that you arrive at the clinic free of makeup, sunscreen and other skincare products.
  • Cleansing and numbing cream: We will cleanse your skin to get rid of oil and dirt. After cleansing, our specialist will apply a numbing cream on the targeted areas.
  • Treatment: The microneedling treatment begins with the specialist using a handheld device which applies pressure and tiny pinpricks to create controlled micro-injuries to your skin.
  • Time: The treatment time will vary between 20 minutes to 1 hour depending upon the treatment area and the microneedle size.
  • Aftercare: Once the procedure is completed, you will be given a moisturiser or a soothing cream to help calm your skin, and reduce redness and swelling if any. We also recommend that you stay clear of sunlight and use gentle skin care products for effective results.

Restrictions You Must Follow Prior to Your Collagen Induction Therapy Treatment in Toronto

Collagen is vital for maintaining youthful skin. We lose collagen and elastin as we age. Microneedling provides a longer-term solution to help boost collagen and elastin levels thereby, giving you strong and tight skin. 

Following are the few things you need to follow prior to Your Collagen Induction Therapy Treatment in Toronto:

  • Avoid self-tanning products 48 hours prior to your treatment.
  • Do not apply skin care products that contain retinol and Vitamin A 24 hours prior to treatment.
  • We strongly advise you to stay indoors and avoid any sun exposure.
  • If you have previously undergone isotretinoin treatment for acne, you need to wait for 6 months to undergo your microneedling treatment. Isotretinoin can hinder the body’s ability to heal, therefore increasing the possibility of facial scarring.

Who Should Consider a Microneedling Treatment in Toronto?

If you are looking to maintain a youthful appearance and reduce the signs of aging you should opt for a microneedling treatment.

Microneedling is an effective treatment if you like to treat:

  • Acne Scarring
  • Sun Damage
  • Skin Discolouration
  • Wrinkles
  • Clogged Pores
  • Fine Lines

Is the treatment suitable for all skin types? The simple answer, Yes as the treatment does not involve the use of heat. However, the treatment cannot be performed if there are any inflamed or infected pores and acne breakouts. Once the symptoms subside you will be available to undergo the microneedling treatment.

Apart from the issues mentioned above micro-needling can also address the following:

  • Hair loss
  • Stretch marks
  • Skin pigmentation
  • Rosacea

How Long Does Microneedling Take?

Microneedling sessions can be around 20 minutes to 1 hour. Furthermore, the session time varies depending on the treatment area. For instance, if you only want to treat a small area, the session time will be less.
