Microneedling Collagen Induction Therapy for Skin Restoration

Microneedling is an advanced treatment to treat fine lines, hyper-pigmentation, acne scars, stretch marks and signs of premature aging. It works by increasing collagen production in the skin. Treatments have minimal downtime and have natural looking results! Microneedling is taking the beauty world by storm!

Microneedling treatments, also known as collagen induction therapy, help to stimulate collagen, and elastin production in the skin. Using a device with 12 very fine needles, we can penetrate the upper layers of the skin and create small micro channels in the tissue, this stimulates the bodies natural healing mechanisms to rejuvenate and restore the skin. Treatments are comfortable, and virtually pain free by using topical numbing creams. 

Microneedling induces collagen and elastin production which helps to treat fine lines and wrinkles, skin laxity, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, stretch marks, and results in more youthful appearing skin. Treatments can be done to the face, neck, chest, and other parts of the body!

Don’t trust anyone with your treatments, trust Kitchener Waterloo Cosmetic Clinic and Dr. Rayhaan Dawood. Other treatments may also be recommended to complement your Microneedling treatment at Kitchener Waterloo Cosmetic Clinic, The premier cosmetic clinic and medical spa of Kitchener Waterloo. Dermal Fillers, Botox, Chemical Peels, Medical Grade Skincare, and other treatments may be advised.

Get Treatment by an Expert!

At Kitchener Waterloo Cosmetic Clinic, all injectable based treatments are done personally by Dr. Rayhaan Dawood MD. CCFP. We are one of the best cosmetic clinics and medical spas in the Kitchener Waterloo Region, and take your care seriously. Unlike other places we do not use nurse injectors for safety reasons.

Microneedling Treatments:

Conditions Treated with Microneedling:

  • Wrinkles/Fine Lines
  • Acne Scars
  • Uneven Skin Tone
  • Uneven Skin Texture
  • Stretch Marks
  • General Skin Aging
  • Hair Loss

 

What to Expect with Microneedling Treatments:

Before treatment, your skin is cleansed and exfoliated. We apply a topical numbing cream for maximum comfort. Once your skin is numb, we apply Hyaluronic Acid Serum and other vitamin complex serums directly to your skin. Using gentle pressure and traction we microneedle your skin to induce both collagen and elastin production. Post treatment, we apply Peptide Serums, Hyaluronic Acid, and Vitamin Complexes to the skin for maximum skin regeneration. You should expect some redness for 12-24 hours post treatment, and improved skin quality and glow within 7 days, with continued results over the next 2-3 months. We recommend an initial 3 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart, and then maintenance treatments every 3-6 months. 

Microneedling and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP):

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) can be combined with Microneedling to create the ultimate restorative skin treatment. Also call the PRP Facial, or Vampire Facial by some clinics, this treatment restores collagen, improves hyper-pigmentation, age spots, acne scars, stretch marks, and can even be used for hair loss. Using PRP amplifies the effect of the microneedling treatment for maximum collagen induction and skin rejuvenation. PRP can be applied to any area with skin, but common areas of treatment include the face, neck, and chest. 

Is Microneedling safe for my skin type?

Unlike laser treatments, microneedling does not induce any thermal (heat) damage. This makes it safe for any and all skin types!

Microneedling and Hair Restoration:

Combining microneedling with PRP can also be used for hair regrowth and restoration. The hair follicle depends on its surrounding blood vessels for nutrients and growth factors. With age, blood vessels can become less effective in supplying the hair follicle. Improving blood supply with microneedling, and PRP injections to the scalp can amplify and treat hair loss for some patients. Growth factors taken from the body’s platelets can promote hair growth and improve overall hair quality. After several treatments, most patients report improved hair quality, thickness, and scalp fullness. Individual results may vary.


What are Microneedling treatments like?

Treatment is quick, like all other services at Kitchener Waterloo Cosmetic Clinic. Your treatment begins with a consultation with Dr. Dawood and staff. Your skin is cleansed and prepared with topical anesthetic to provide for a comfortable treatment. Afterwards, your skin is treated with serums and vitamin complexes, and several comfortable strokes of our microneedling device. Most patients are in the office for about an hour, with actual treatment time of less than 20 minutes. 

How much does a Microneedling treatment cost?

Price depends on the areas treated, and current promotions. The most common area treated is the face, with treatments starting at $280. Common add-on areas are the neck, or chest. If you have stretch marks on your stomach, thighs, or other areas, we can build you a customized package of treatments! If you elect for PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) in combination with your microneedling (PRP Facial/ Vampire Facial), costs are higher (starting at $650).

What is Microneedling Recovery like?

Most patients return to regular activities immediately post procedure. You should expect some mild swelling, and redness post procedure, with redness fading in 12-24 hours. You should avoid working out for 24 hours, and avoid apply make up for a minimum of 6 hours! Full results will take up to 2 months, but you will noticed improvement in skin quality within 7 days.  

How many Microneedling treatments are required?

Number of treatments varies, but we typically recommend a set of 3 initial treatments, each space out by 4-6 weeks. And then maintenance treatments every 3-6 months. Again, this is dependent on individual patient goals and skin quality and depends on the level of correction desired. Combining other treatments or PRP will change your treatment schedule. We find it best to build you a customized skin treatment package during your consultation! 

Are Results permanent?

Microneedling is amazing to replenish and restore your collagen! But just as collagen naturally declines, the stimulated collagen from microneedling treatments will too. That is why we recommend ongoing skin maintenace with microneedling, facials, peels, and other restorative treatments like botox and filler! 

Are there any risks or side effects with Microneedling?

There are no major risks or side effects. We go over all risks and complications prior to procedure, however this is a very safe treatment.
