Toronto Microneedling: A Beautiful Complexion Is Just a Roller Away

Imagine having a smoother, more youthful-looking complexion. Imagine having skin that is free of scars, hyperpigmentation, acne, stretch marks, and age spots. Imagine being able to shrink large pores on your nose and cheeks.

While this may all sound too good to be true, each of the aforementioned dreams can be achieved with microneedling, or collagen induction treatment (CIT), an innovative procedure that uses a derma roller equipped with micro-needles to stimulate collagen production, treating a wide range of skin concerns. With Toronto microneedling, a beautiful complexion is just a roller away.

How Does Microneedling Work?

Benefits of Toronto Microneedling

As we age, our skin begins to lose elasticity as our collagen production slows down. Microneedling triggers the skin’s natural collagen and elastin production by creating microscopic “injuries” to the skin using a series of micro-needles. While this may sound intimidating, the procedure is incredibly safe and minimally invasive, as the needles are inserted at a maximum depth of 1.5 mm, which ensures that the epidermis remains intact. As a result, while the body reacts to the “injuries” to the skin by producing growth factors that encourage collagen production, the process does not result in bleeding or the development of scars. The fresh collagen and elastin that is produced as a result of this procedure leads to skin that is firmer, softer, and more even in tone.

Microneedling in Toronto has a number of benefits and can be used to treat a wide array of skin concerns, including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Because fine lines and wrinkles are a result of a loss of collagen and elastin, microneedling can effectively reduce these signs of aging by stimulating collagen production.

  • Enlarged pores
  • Because it stimulates collagen production, microneedling can be used to reduce the appearance of enlarged pores as it thickens the epidermis.

  • Acne
  • Microneedling can prevent and treat acne by creating micro-channels in the skin, increasing the efficacy and absorption rate of the products applied. However, it is not advisable to undergo microneedling if active acne is present.

How to Reduce Signs of Aging?

Treating Skin Concerns

  • Scars
  • Whether they are caused by injury, surgery, or skin conditions such as acne, scars can have a detrimental impact on self-esteem. Fortunately, microneedling can treat a wide range of scars by breaking up scar tissues and encouraging the production of collagen, promoting the development of new, healthy skin.

  • Premature aging
  • Since a reduction in collagen and elastin can lead to early signs of aging such as dull, lacklustre skin, microneedling is an effective way to prevent premature aging.

  • Stretch marks
  • Microneedling breaks down the stretched tissue that causes stretch marks, thereby stimulating the production of collagen. In most cases, several treatments are required to see a significant reduction in stretch marks.

  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Microneedling can reduce hyperpigmentation caused by acne and sun damage by exfoliating the top layer of skin, producing normal melanocyte.

  • Age spots
  • Microneedling can also be used to treat age spots by removing the top layer of skin, diminishing the appearance of dark spots.

  • Rosacea
  • Stimulating collagen production using microneedling has proven to be an effective way of treating rosacea, a skin condition that causes facial redness.

  • Hair loss
  • Microneedling has also been proven to be effective in treating hair loss, or alopecia, as it promotes hair growth and increases the size of hair follicles.
