Micro-needling is an anti-aging procedure which stimulates the body’s own natural collagen production processes. This procedure both facilitates and stimulates the skin’s natural repair and growth processes without causing any scarring or permanent damage to the skin and notably improves skin tone and texture.
Micro-needling utilizes and enhances the body’s own natural response to healing to improve acne scars and aging skin. While no treatment can eliminate scars completely, Micro-needling in combination with Airgent™/Enerjet, Fractora™, CO2, Fraxel® or Trifractional can significantly improve the scars.
The procedure consists of multiple sessions depending on the condition of the skin, scars or skin damage as well as the size of the area being treated.
Ranging from a recommended course of 1 to 3 treatments for skin rejuvenation, or up to 6 treatments for deep pitted scars, most treatments take less than 45 minutes and are done 2-6 weeks apart. The micro-needling procedure consists of in-clinic sessions, as well as a home care treatment with professional skin care products.
The eDermastamp is currently the only micro-needling device that has been approved by Health Canada. While micro-needling treatments are very safe when performed in a doctor’s office, some devices are available online that can contribute to the risk of infection or other skin problems. It is important to understand that the eDermastamp is the original micro-needling device and exceeds quality control and safety standards, thus making it the ONLY Health Canada approved micro-needling device.
