Micro-needling is a special form of collagen induction therapy that involves puncturing your skin using a device made of tiny sterile needles. This treatment is designed to offer you natural relief from aging skin, wrinkles, stretch marks, scarring (acne, surgical), hyperpigmentation, cellulite and hair loss. Best of all, this treatment relies on your body’s own ability to regenerate, meaning there are no additives involved. At Compassion Medical Wellness Centre, we use InnoPen, a state-of-the-art technology that produces amazing results!
How Does Micro-needling Work?
Micro-needling works by using very fine, sterile needles to puncture the skin and to create micro-channels deep into the skin to stimulate new collagen and elastin production. The skin then responds by making new collagen-rich tissue. The new skin tissue produced is more even in tone and texture. The resulting micro-channels also aid in infusing therapeutic serums, allowing for greater penetration and increasing overall efficacy of active ingredients.
What Can I Expect From InnoPen Micro-needling?
InnoPen treatments usually takes an hour or less. Although it is minimally invasive, we often apply a numbing cream to alleviate any potential pain or discomfort. The results of InnoPen micro-needling can be dramatic, especially after a series of treatments. Your skin will be brighter and firmer, and any scarring will be greatly reduced. Most patients see results shortly after the first treatment, as the healing process triggered by the production of new collagen and elastin begins to take effect. It may take a full month to see full results from one treatment.
How Long Do Results Last?
Because InnoPen micro-needling treatments stimulate new collagen and elastin production, results can last for many years. We recommend maintenance sessions once a year to ensure continued results.
