At Beauty Within, we offer Micro-Needling for facial rejuvenation. This treatment is coupled with either a Hyaluronic Acid (HA) serum or your own Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP).
This treatment is performed using the Eclipse MicroPen® Elite - the #1 micro-needling device in Canada!
The Eclipse MicroPen® Elite is Health Canada approved.
Micro-Needling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), is a procedure that improves the appearance of wrinkles, acne scars, loss of firmness, brown spots and stretch marks by stimulating the skin’s natural ability to repair itself.
A pen-like device with tiny, sharp needles is used to create hundreds of micro-channels in the skin. This process triggers the skin to release growth factors and cytokines, producing more collagen and elastin, resulting in younger looking skin. The pen glides effortlessly across the skin with the gliding quality of the HA serum or PRP.
Micro-needling/CIT is not indicated for deep wrinkles, skin laxity and significant volume loss. It is not recommended if you are breastfeeding, pregnant, have a blood condition especially involving platelets or fibrin, recent blood transfusion, if you have a history of keloid scarring, collagen vascular diseases such as scleroderma or if you have cancer. Avoid treatment in areas where there is skin cancer, precancerous skin lesions, skin infection/or chronic skin condition (eg. eczema, psoriasis) at the site of treatment. If you have hemophilia, infectious diseases or liver function issues, PRP may not be indicated. Bleeding disorders or blood thinners make you more prone to bruising. Smoking/second-hand smoke interferes with healing and may increase the risk of all side effects especially infection. Chronic medical conditions such as diabetes, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, HIV or other immunosuppressive conditions or medications may increase your risk of infection and other side-effects. If you have any of the above issues there may be a decreased or lack of response to treatment.
Injection-related side effects can include:
