Vancouver Microneedling

What is Microneedling?

Have you heard all the buzz about microneedling yet?

If not, it’s time to introduce yourself to this exciting and very popular new treatment. Microneedling is one of those rare procedures that can tackle a wide variety of complexion concerns, whether they center around aging, hyperpigmentation, acne scarring, and more.

Want to learn more about microneedling, including what it is and how it works? Let’s take a look now!

About Microneedling

Microneedling is an FDA-approved device that uses microscopic needles to quickly puncture facial dermal tissue.

Sound confusing? There’s actually a very straightforward reason why this treatment is so popular – the puncturing results from the device trigger a surge of collagen and elastin production. This accelerated production produces fantastic results, including:

  • Faster cellular turnover
  • Thicker, tighter skin
  • Reduction of acne scarring
  • Lightening of hyperpigmentation (like age spots and sun spots)
  • Reduction of wrinkles and fine lines
  • And more!

At Yaletown Laser Centre, we use the DermaPen to perform our microneedling treatments. This device delivers all the benefits of microneedling while minimizing any discomfort that patients may feel during the procedure.

In fact, most of our clients compare the sensation of DermaPen microneedling to feeling sandpaper being lightly brushed across their skin!

How Microneedling With PRP Works

While microneedling can super-charge cellular turnover, microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can take your results to the next level.

Before we dive into this procedure, let’s take a closer look at PRP. This solution consists of platelets separated from your blood, as well as a special growth-activating serum. The concoction is then added to a microneedling device, which is then used to deliver the serum straight to your dermal tissue.

What makes it different from traditional microneedling treatments is that the PRP formula accelerates cellular turnover, promotes skin-tightening benefits, and even helps to thicken skin so that it feels firmer and more elastic.

*Individual results may vary.
