First things first, micro-needling is a medical procedure that should be done by a qualified Medical Aesthetician. That being said, Salon Society has several certified Medical Aestheticians specializing in many areas including microneedling.
Now, let’s talk about microneedling and why you should consider investing. Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, is a minimally invasive procedure to stimulate the body’s natural healing process and healthy cell turn over.
What the heck does this mean? Here’s some examples:
Did you know that our collagen starts to deplete around the age of 25? I know, read that again, cry a little and then come back. But trust me, look at kids with their perfect skin and no remaining lines after they laugh or glare or frown leaves us with serious envy. They really don’t know how lucky they are!
As mentioned earlier, microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that involves a specialized pen with a disposable needle tip (we use one needle head per client treatment since we don’t want to be spreading any blood-borne diseases). The needle speed and depth are 100% controlled by your aesthetician. Depending on your treatment plan and treatment area, they will determine the settings for both. The Health Canada licensed needle pen works in a stamping motion which is visible to the naked eye as a vibration. This method prevents any cutting or tearing of the skin which would be damaging. (Circle back to the top about why you should research your aesthetician and their products/suppliers. There are cheap pens out there and you and your skin deserve the highest and safest quality!).
It should be noted that the skin is COMPLETELY NUMB with medical-grade numbing cream. You
don’t feel anything! It’s literally like a vibration massage. We have had many clients come in who are nervous and then are surprised at how relaxed they are during and after the treatment.
What to expect for your session:
Now of course with everything, there are some contraindications that need to be considered. Not everyone can be a candidate for this procedure, and a free consultation/intake form is required for any new clients. Please contact us with any questions! Our specialists would love to help you on your skin healing journey.
