Rejuvenate Your Skin: The Essential Guide to Microneedling

Microneedling is a service known worldwide and is very popular at MD Skin Lab in Toronto. Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, helps rejuvenate the skin. It smooths out fine lines and wrinkles, fades acne scars, and can even out hyperpigmentation. This procedure helps stimulate your skin's natural healing abilities, resulting in glowing skin our patients love!

At MD Skin Lab, our experienced aestheticians perform microneedling with the utmost care and precision for a safe and comfortable experience. In this blog, we break down everything you need to know about microneedling in Toronto. Let’s get into it! 

What is Microneedling? 

Microneedling is a skincare procedure that involves using a device equipped with fine, sterile needles to create precise micro-injuries on the skin surface. These tiny punctures initiate the body's innate repair process, leading to the production of collagen and elastin, which are key. At MD Skin Lab, we use the SkinPen, a top-of-the-line device that we use to deliver exceptional results.

The natural healing process following the treatment enhances skin texture, increases firmness, and promotes a more youthful look. Microneedling is well-known for its effectiveness and safety in addressing various skin issues, helping with a refreshed and revitalized appearance. For optimal results, we strongly advise undergoing this treatment with a skilled aesthetician at MD Skin Lab.

At our Toronto clinic, we use microneedling to treat the face, neck, chest, back, and hands. 

Why Do You Use the SkinPen for Microneedling? 

At MD Skin Lab, we like to use the best solutions for our patients, which is why we chose the SkinPen device. It is known for its medical-grade quality and is a minimally invasive, safe device that has obtained FDA and Health-Canada clearance. The SkinPen has a range of customizable needle depths, allowing our experienced aestheticians to tailor the treatment according to your skincare needs and desired outcome. Overall, it is an excellent solution for restoring skin health and enhancing overall appearance.

Can You Explain How Microneedling Works? 

Microneedling utilizes the body’s natural healing response to create positive changes in the skin! Micro-injuries are made in the skin's outermost layer, the epidermis, and the underlying layer, the dermis. When micro-injuries are made to the skin, the body perceives them as injuries and triggers different responses. One of the body’s responses is the release of growth factors and cytokines, which are signalling molecules that stimulate collagen and elastin production. Collagen is an important structural protein that provides strength and support to the skin. Elastin helps maintain flexibility in the skin. Combined, you’ll experience improved skin texture, firmness and resilience.

While the micro-injuries are made to the skin, your aesthetician may use topical medical-grade skincare products such as serum, which delivers the active ingredients to the deeper layer of your skin. Additionally, your aesthetician may offer the option to add exosomes to the treatment. Exosomes are tiny vesicles released from cells that facilitate communication between cells and promote regeneration and healing processes. They can amplify collagen production and improve results and healing time in aesthetic treatments.

Lastly, microneedling promotes neovascularization, which is the formation of new blood vessels. Increased blood flow to your treated area supports healing and improves overall skin health. All in all, it’s safe to say that microneedling with the SkinPen is a highly effective skincare solution!


How Many Appointments Will I Need to See Results? 

We always tell our patients that the number of appointments required is based on their skin goals. There are many different skin types, and for some individuals, that may be a few appointments with significant spacing between them. For others, it can be more frequent.

Typically, we recommend 3 treatments for optimal results. If you have specific skin conditions, like acne scarring, we recommend anywhere from 4 to 6 treatments. Your experienced aesthetician at MD Skin Lab will provide you with a custom plan during your consultation to streamline the correct number of appointments tailored to your skin’s needs.

It’s important to note that you will experience noticeable improvements within a week after the treatment. These positive changes can include a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, which improves overall skin texture, creating a more even skin tone. 

We recommend regular follow-up treatments to help maintain the results you achieve and ensure continual improvement of your skin!

Why Should I Use an Experienced Aesthetician for My Microneedling Treatments?

At MD Skin Lab, we always recommend working with our experienced aestheticians for microneedling. Our aestheticians offer professional expertise, as they are trained professionals who understand the intricacies of various skin types and conditions. Working with someone who can assess your skin’s specific needs and customize the treatment to ensure the best possible results is crucial.

Additionally, aestheticians at our Toronto clinic understand the importance of safety and hygiene. Microneedling involves creating tiny punctures in the skin, which can potentially carry the risk of infection if not done correctly. We always use sterile equipment while following strict hygiene protocols to minimize risks and ensure safety throughout the procedure.

And, of course, you’ll want to work with aestheticians with the right technique. Skilled aestheticians use the right technique and depth for the needles to achieve optimal results without causing unnecessary damage to the skin. Additionally, they can provide you with a tailored plan to achieve optimal results based on your skin goals.
