At Oakville Plastic Surgery and Advanced Skin Care, we have been in on the secret of microneedling for a while, and now the mainstream beauty media is catching on to this non-invasive treatment that takes the heat out of skin regeneration.
Unlike lasers and radiofrequency devices, which rely on the delivery of heat to activate a wound-healing response in the skin, microneedling employs the use of very fine needles rolled over the skin to elicit a similar response without the potential risks associated with heat. This is especially good news for rosacea and melasma sufferers or those with dark skin tones.
Microneedling is not a replacement for laser or radiofrequency devices, but it can provide similar benefits when performed as a treatment series. Some of the skin improvements that can be achieved with microneedling include:
- Minimizing the look of textural scars, including acne scars
- Fading skin discolouration
- Improving the vitality and texture of the skin
- Softening lines and wrinkles
- Refining pores
At Oakville Plastic Surgery and Advanced Skin Care, we like to combine a microneedling treatment with Selphyl®, a platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) treatment that uses your own blood plasma combined with a fibrin matrix to boost skin regeneration and rebuild the skin’s supportive structures. Additionally, we offer an at-home microneedling system to help you prolong the benefits of your professional treatment.
Dermaroller Microneedling System: When used once a week after cleansing the skin, the revolutionary hand-held device naturally stimulates collagen and elastin to promote healthier and rejuvenated skin.
