See Your Skin in a New Light
Via a mechanical action, microneedling triggers a self-healing process and boosts fibroblast production.
Our skin has a powerful regeneration capacity. However, over time, certain aggressions make this spontaneous reparation process difficult to manage. The production of collagen and elastin diminishes over the years and makes natural healing less effective. Moreover, to fight against imperfections, our skin requires stimulation.
Microneedling’s Regenerative Benefits:
How Does It Work?
A microneedling session combines 2 complementary actions: a medical procedure and a cosmeceutical serum.
Microneedling is performed with a handheld, drum- or pen-shaped device, single-usage and electrically powered, with tiny needles that make precise, microscopic punctures into the skin in just a few minutes. These microscopic punctures act as micro-aggressions on the skin, consequently the organism kick-starts a healing process and thus produces new collagen fibers. Skin is plumped, oxygenated and imperfections are smoothed.
To top off this physiological action, these micro-punctures allow the serum to deeply penetrate skin layers. Personally selected by our Skin Expert, this serum contains a cocktail of active ingredients adapted to the patient’s needs.
The number of sessions depends on the desired effects ( an average of 4 sessions, a month apart).
Before & After
Answers to frequently asked questions about microneedling.
What does a microneedling session entail?
After a preliminary appointment with our Skin expert to determine the imperfections to treat and the number of necessary sessions, the procedure may commence. A microneedling session lasts 60 minutes and is completely painless.
After cleansing the skin to eliminate all impurities or traces of makeup, our Skin Expert then applies a serum adapted to the patient’s needs and begins the microneedling session. The procedure ends with a facial massage to heighten lymphatic drainage.
This treatment is topped off by a LED photomodulation session to accelerate the healing process and reduce inflammation.
Upon completing the session, a soothing cream is applied and the patient can resume his/her daily routine with no necessary recovery time.
According to the targeted imperfections, our Skin Expert may advise a peeling procedure beforehand to optimize results.
What are the contraindications?
Microneedling can be performed on men and women of all ages and phototypes. A consent form must be signed by underage patients and the session must be performed in the presence of a parent.
This treatment cannot be performed during an acne breakout (microcysts) nor on people with blood clotting issues.
What are the side effects?
Upon completing a session, redness may appear on the treatment area and will disappear in a few days. Avoid all sun exposure and intense heat (sauna, hammam) in the 48hrs following a microneedling session.
In the course of the sessions, the patient will observe a progressive amelioration of the skin’s texture and a reduction of imperfections and a more beautiful complexion is revealed.
