Overview of Microneedling Treatment in Toronto
Microneedling, which is officially called collagen induction therapy, is an anti-aging treatment that involves miniscule needles that induce micro-traumas across targeted areas on the skin. That sounds a lot more painful than it actually is. But in reality, the needles are so tiny that you can hardly feel them puncturing tiny holes in your skin. As the needles move across your skin, you might feel a minimal pinching sensation, but there shouldn’t be any further pain or discomfort. A topical numbing agent can be applied for patients that have extra sensitive skin.
The objective of this procedure is to stimulate the body’s natural healing response that also promotes collagen production. Collagen is a natural structural protein that’s found in the body’s main connective tissues. Not only does collagen facilitate the healing process, but it also removes or revitalizes dead skin cells and actively promotes new skin cell generation to heal the skin trauma. The result is noticeably smoother, younger looking, and more radiant skin.
What Does Microneedling Recovery Entail?
Microneedling is a fast and easy anti-aging skincare treatment in Toronto that requires minimal to no recovery time whatsoever. Some patients may choose to take the day off of work or schedule their appointment before or after work or on the weekends because the treatment may result in some temporary redness in the affected area. Other than that, no recovery time is needed and you should be able to return to your normal routine immediately afterward.
You may experience a short period of hyperpigmentation or blushing in the treatment area, but this should subside after a day or two as your body begins the healing process. Avoid wearing makeup and sunscreen for at least 12 hours following each treatment session so that your pores can stay clean and open. Three hours after the treatment, you should wash your face with a gentle cleanser. Repeat this process before going to bed. Wait 48 hours to resume your usual skincare routine.
How Much Does Microneedling Cost in Toronto?
The cost of microneedling treatment in Toronto can range anywhere from $200 to $1,000 per session depending on whether you’re undergoing any other cosmetic treatments at the same time. Some skincare clinics in Toronto may offer discounted bundles for patients who want to combine microneedling with other treatments such as radiofrequency.
Additional costs may include wearing sunscreen after the initial 48 hours, antibiotic ointments if infection occurs (rare), hyaluronic acid to help retain skin moisture, coconut oil to hydrate the skin, and collagen-stimulating peptide to maintain treatment results.
