At Liliana Laser Clinic, we have been treating skin imperfections using the microneedling procedure. And the results are extremely impressive. As people age, their natural production of elastin and collagen decreases. The decrease causes various aging signs to appear. Many individuals have resorted to facials to hydrate their skin and minimize the signs of aging; however, the effects are short-lived. To achieve long-lasting results, you ought to consider microneedling in Toronto, instead.
What is Microneedling?
The procedure is also referred to as collagen induction therapy (CIT), works just like a Fraxel laser. Treatment areas include stretch marks, fine lines, crows feet, hypo and hyperpigmentation, acne scars, dark circles under the eyes, traumatic scars, large pores, and wrinkles. The procedure is performed anywhere on your body.
How Does Microneedling Work?
Similar to Fraxel laser, an Eclipse Micropen needle-tip with tiny micro-needles make controlled micro-injuries or channels on your skin to produce elastin, collagen and improve blood supply. The repair process thickens the derm. As a result, pores tighten, wrinkles soften, and scars become less obvious.
The microchannels help in the absorption of serums, topical gels, and creams used in treatment, thus boosting their reaction on the deeper layers of your tissues.
How Many Treatments Do You Need?
A microneedling procedure can be safely redone after every 4 to 6 weeks until you attain the desired results. For scar reduction, we recommend you get at least 3-6 treatments. For collagen induction, it's recommended you begin with three treatments with a separation time of about 4 to 6 weeks in between treatments.
Ultimately, the number of treatments necessary will depend on the extent of damage, and how you respond to treatment. Most people see results right after their first appointment. The results continually improve for about six months.
Is the Procedure Painful?
It depends on the part of the body the treatment is performed. Some areas tend to be more sensitive compared to others. What makes the procedure comfortable is the speed of the needle tip. At times, depending on the condition that’s being treated and the needling depth, numbing agents may be topically applied.
What’s the Down Time?
Right after the procedure, you’ll notice redness or pinkness of the skin that looks like a sunburn. The depth of the treatment determines total healing time and the condition being treated. Strictly adhering to our post-care instructions will go a long way in speeding up your healing process.
That said, the inflammatory reaction is extremely short and significantly fades within a couple of hours. It may last anywhere between 12 and 48 hours. Using hyaluronic acid after your procedure considerably reduces the redness.
What are The Benefits of Microneedling?
exposure to too much sun may causefair damage to your skin, resulting in skin thinning and facial wrinkles that lead to the loss of collagen and elastin. Our microneedling procedure at Liliana Laser Clinic promotes natural collagen and elastin. After your procedure, you’ll notice a remarkable reduction in scars, fine lines, and wrinkles.
