Microneedling

WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING?

Using tiny needles, which penetrate the skin’s superficial, mid and deep layers, micro-injury of the collagen and elastic tissue stimulates the body’s own wound healing response.  As a result, new collagen and elastin are produced, resulting in improvement in the resiliency and thickness of aging and sun-damaged skin.


At Atlantic Skin Care, we offer 3 levels of rejuvenating microneedling procedures:

  1. Basic skin freshening microneedling, performed by our Medical Esthetician under physician supervision, combines the benefits of hyaluronic acid rehydration with collagen stimulation.  With minimal discomfort and down-time, this is a quick, affordable procedure that can be repeated any time your dry, dull skin needs relief. 
  2. PRP “Plasma facials,” performed by our team of physicians and nurses, assisted by our Medical Esthetician, combines the benefits of PRP growth factors and medium-depth microneedling.  A small sample of your blood is processed on-site under sterile medical conditions to prepare a solution of platelet-rich plasma, which is then delivered to your skin using the microneedling device.  Following a series of sessions, significant improvement can be seen in fine lines, discolouration due to sun damage, and some types of acne scars.
  3. Beauty Booster, performed by our Dermatologists, combines the benefits of Redensity 1, a hyaluronic acid filler formulated with a mixture of antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins and minerals, and deep microneedling, using a unique V2 injection system. Following a series of 3-5 treatments, expect to see improvement in more advanced fine lines, crepiness, and dull, damaged skin.
