Microneedling in North Vancouver, BC

Treatment Information

Microneedling is a popular procedure that treats and improves skin conditions such as acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, pore size and skin texture. The procedure involves using fine needles to create controlled micro-punctures to the skin in order to rejuvenate the complexion. Most anyone can have a microneedling procedure done and the downtime is minimal.

How it Works

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy (CIT) and skin needling, is a noninvasive procedure that stimulates new collagen production. Using microneedles, tiny punctures induce collagen and elastin production, resulting in more youthful appearing skin. The release of these properties aid in repairing the texture and resiliency of the skin. Microneedling addresses minor skin concerns such as skin laxity, fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, stretch marks, and skin discolorations.
