Microneedling

Collagen induction therapy to improve scarring, lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, and to achieve tighter, smoother skin.

Microneedling is a procedure that uses small needles to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin. These injuries then initiate a wound-healing effect to stimulate the production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid for the improvement of facial acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks, and pigmentation.

Beauty Room uses the Health Canada and FDA-approved, medical-grade II device MicroPen® EVO and sterile needles to give you smooth, healthy, and radiant skin.

Benefits of Microneedling

Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by promoting production of collagen and elastin, making the skin look younger, smoother, and healthier.

Improves skin tone caused by sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and acne scars. By boosting collagen productions, microneedling can address these issues to smooth and brighten the skin.

Reduces the appearance of pore size. The pores in teh treatreated areas appear smaller after treatments due to the increased production of collagen - collagen plumps the skin, thereby minimizing the appearance of pore size.

Improves the efficacy of skincare products by creating microchannels, allowing products to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin.

Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by promoting production of collagen and elastin, making the skin look younger, smoother, and healthier.

What is the downtime?

Inflammation of the skin should fade between 12 to 48 hours. To help reduce redness, we recommend following our post-procedure product The inflammatory reaction of the skin is extremely short and fades significantly within hours from redness to pinkish that may last for 12 to 48 hours. In order to reduce visible redness, we recommend hyaluronic acid after the procedure, and to protect the skin with zinc based sunblock. The use of mineral makeup is recommended after procedure.

How to prepare the skin before microneedling
  • Avoid suntanning
  • Avoid retinols and vitamin A for 5 days prior to treatment
  • Prepare your skin with medical-grade skincare before and after your procedure to achieve the best results
  • Please advise us prior to treatment if you have suffered in the past with cold sores on the skin or lips. This viral infection may be re-activated in these areas by any injection treatments. You may be required to take an anti-viral medication such as Valtrex on the day of your treatment and for several days after your treatment.
How many sessions do I need?

We recommend 4 sessions spaced 1 month apart for best results. One or two sessions per year after that to maintain results.

What to expect during your treatment
  • You will have filled out your intake form prior to your appointment and have had a thorough consultation with our medical aesthetician.
  • Your skin will be thoroughly cleansed and disinfected prior to an application of topical anesthetic.
  • A medical-grade hyaluronic glide is used during treatment and will penetrate deep into the skin through the microchannels to hydrate the skin.
  • The treatment should be fairly comfortable and last about 15-20 minutes.
  • Once the microneedling is completed, appropriate products will be applied and aftercare products will be recommended and your next session will be booked.
