Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment to trigger the body’s natural regenerative processes and restore and refresh the skin. Our skilled physician at Dermaworks performs microneedling with an advanced treatment: The SkinPen. This is one of the most effective, non-surgical treatment to resolve several skin issues, and leave your skin looking refreshed and rejuvenated in the most natural way. The SkinPen treatment simply gets your body working to produce more collagen – the perfect plumper, as it is natural.
Also known as collagen induction therapy, microneedling is performed with a small, handheld device containing tiny needles. The device is passed over the skin to create hundreds of microinjuries, or micro-channels, in the skin. This treatment works in two ways:
The beauty of the SkinPen treatment is that it produces remarkable improvements in skin quality and texture. It is highly-effective in treating the following skin conditions:
The SkinPen is the safest, most effective method for microneedling. The microneedling device uses a sterile, single-use cartridge, along with what is termed a “bio-sheath” that serves to protect against the risk of cross-contamination. SkinPen is approved by Health Canada due to its built-in health and safety features – and proven results.
If you are ready to undergo a procedure to restore and rejuvenate your skin, we invite you to discover the benefits of SkinPen treatments:
Many of our patients have interest in microneedling with PRP. This is a twofold procedure to trigger skin rejuvenation from within. PRP, or platelet rich plasma, is a blood product we create from a small sample of your own blood (about the quantity of a normal blood test). The blood is spun in a centrifuge to separate the PRP. This blood product is loaded with “growth factors.” These growth factors are known for their wound-healing properties and have been used in the medical field for decades for that purpose, and in professional sports.
The tiny microchannels created with the SkinPen allow the PRP to go deep within the skin structure to trigger the body to heal. The microinjuries stimulate the body’s natural healing processes and a higher level of collagen production. With the addition of the PRP, the growth factors go to work. This treatment has proven to be one of the most exciting developments in aesthetics, made popular by celebrities – and available at Dermaworks in Ottawa.
