Micro-Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy is a Medical Aesthetic procedure that involves tiny sterile needles repeatedly puncturing the skin to create controlled skin injury. As each fine needle punctures the skin, it creates a channel or micro-wound, thus triggering the body to fill these micro-wounds by producing new collagen and elastin. Micro-Needling treatment leads to reduction of scars, improved skin texture, density, firmness, hydration and skin rejuvenation.

Micro-needling using a derma roller at home is a great way to rejuvenate and exfoliate skin; while dramatically improving the effectiveness of your skincare products and in spa treatments.
BUT…You could be doing more harm that good.

- The device we use is approved by Health Canada! (http://dermaspark.com/)
- Hyaluronic Acid that is specifically designed for Microneedling is needled into the skin during the treatment.
- Our technician is certified in Paramedical Tattooing and uses her medical tattoo machine to focus on areas of concerns once the full face treatment is completed.
- A Hyaluronic Acid mask is used after the treatment to help reduce redness and lock the product into the micro channels.
- Plus - any area of the body can be needled using the paramedical tattooing machine and can be customized to your specific concerns; not just the face!
