Microneedling Toronto also known as “Collagen Induced Therapy” is a medical procedure that delivers small micro-punctures into the skin using tiny sterile needles. This form of trauma stimulates the body’s own natural healing process, activating new collagen production. As new cells are formed, the epidermal layers of the skin begin to remodel and fresh new skin appears. The texture and feel becomes smoother, making the skin look more youthful and glowing.
Microneedling is known to help improve and treat skin laxity such as fine lines and wrinkles, minimizes pore size, and helps eliminate superficial hyperpigmentation. It is especially known to help treat deep and light facial scarring from acne or other skin traumas, as well as significantly improves the signs of stretch marks. These issues can be treated on the face as well as on the rest of the body, however recovery time, treatment frequency and spacing will vary depending on the area.
There are many different types of devices and technologies using the microneedling Toronto and “Collagen Induced Therapy” principles. Depending on the device or hand piece, pre and post treatment protocols will differ. A medical professional should customize each treatment plan to ensure client goals and expectations are properly met.
During a microneedling treatment Toronto, a minor pinching sensation is experienced as the puncture is delivered into the skin. The application is done quickly to avoid discomfort. Depending on the microneedling Toronto device, numbing agents are administered upon injection or are topically applied and absorbed before the treatment begins. That being said, pain tolerance is very dependent on the client and therefore will be different for each person.
Immediately after a microneedling procedure, clients should experience some redness and swelling, even in some cases potential post-bleeding. The skin will be in its most vulnerable state for the first 12-24h until the micro-punctures in the skin heal, therefore minimal activity is recommended. Redness and swelling usually subsides within 24-48h, which at that point any and all routine physical and daily activities can be resumed. Any topical prescriptions or active ingredients should be discontinued 3 days prior to treatment, and can be resumed approximately 5-7 days after the treatment. More aggressive microneedling treatments in Toronto Downtown will require more downtime and different post-procedure protocols, therefore it is important to properly prepare beforehand.
Microneedling Toronto treatments are ideal for all skin types and tones and are an extremely beneficial treatment to continue long-term. It is one of the safest options for clients who have darker skin tones that are prone to hyperpigmentation and wish to brighten the skin. It is also an effective treatment for clients with a darker Fitzpatrick who want to remove unwanted facial scarring. Consulting a medical professional is very important as microneedling technologies and devices are continuously improving and changing. At this point, a Medical Esthetician will be able to provide the client with the appropriate information regarding different microneedling Toronto services and which would be best suited for their issues and concerns.
