Micro-needling is the latest in skin revitalization. Micro-needling helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, but also has a positive effect on uneven skin tone and acne scars, improving the skin’s overall appearance, giving you fresher, younger looking skin.
At Infinite Medical Spa we use the Eclipse MicroPen Elite ® which is licensed by Health Canada.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
During this treatment, the cordless, fractional, automated Micro-Needling device composed of medical-grade stainless steel is used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin, helping it produce collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in improved texture and softer wrinkles. Micro-Needling also creates micro-channels which allow topical gels, creams, and serums to be absorbed more effectively, enhancing their effects in deeper layers of the skin.
All areas on the body can be treated. The most common areas include the face, neck, and chest.
Most people can return to their normal, daily activities immediately after treatment. The total healing time depends on the extent of the treatment. On average, skin might be pink 1 to 3 days after the treatment. Visible changes in the skin can develop over the course of a few days or several weeks after the treatment. Results continue to improve up to six months after the original treatment as collagen production continues over time.
We will apply a thick layer of topical gel to your skin and select the appropriate treatment setting based on your unique needs. Next, in a single motion, the micro needling pen will be gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding until the entire treatment area has been covered. This process results in thousands of superficial microscopic channels throughout the entire treatment area, stimulating your skin’s natural ability to heal itself. This repair process begins almost immediately.
Wrinkle reduction, texture, tone improvement, and softer, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. New collagen production reverses years of sun damage. This treatment also has a positive effect on hyper-pigmentation as well as on uneven skin tone, acne scars, and traumatic scars.
