Collagen induction therapy, commonly known as micro-needling, is a cosmetic technique that helps to renew and rejuvenate skin affected by scars, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, and signs of aging like lines and wrinkles. This technique is minimally-invasive, meaning that less skin tissue is damaged during the treatment so that you can return to normal activities immediately after your needling session. Thousands of patients in Toronto have undergone this safe and effective skin rejuvenation treatment.
What It Is
Micro-needling is a minimally-invasive treatment that helps improve the condition of skin with sun damage, scars, and signs of aging. It helps to increase the thickness of your skin and production of collagen, an important skin substance that creates bulk and structure for your skin.
How It Works
A needling session in Toronto improves your skin through the creation of thousands of microscopic punctures that are not normally visible with the naked eye. These safe and controlled injuries trigger the formation of new collagen to reduce many common skin problems.
What It Treats
Micro-needling is able to treat numerous skin conditions, including lines and wrinkles, uneven pigmentation, enlarged pores, stretch marks, and scars due to acne, trauma, or surgery.
Advantages of Micro-Needling
Micro-needling offers numerous advantages over similar skin treatments. For one, less skin damage is caused by the treatment, resulting in a shortened recovery time. In fact, most patients are able to resume work or daily activities immediately after a needling treatment.
Another key advantage to micro-needling is that it offers results that appear very soft and natural. We are working with your body and its own healing abilities. Over the following weeks and months after your treatment, your skin will be gradually remodeled from the inside out. This means that no one will likely know that you had anything done since your results will appear to be very gradual and natural.
Needling sessions are also cumulative in nature. Each treatment session builds upon the results of prior ones. Just be prepared to wait a few weeks between each treatment session so that your skin has time to adequately heal and remodel.
What to Expect
Your micro-needling treatment session in Toronto begins with a cleansing of your skin in the treatment area and the application of a topical numbing agent to ensure your comfort throughout your procedure. We then smoothly glide a special device over your skin to form thousands of micro-injuries in its surface. This triggers a self-repair process that results in smoother, more evenly pigmented skin over the following weeks and months.
