Microneedling also known as Collagen Induction Therapy is one of the best long term skin rejuvenation treatments today for younger looking skin! It incorporates a series of treatments with marked improvement along the way that is natural and effective.
Microneedling is an effective alternative to Botox and invasive lasers treatments. There is a shift in having the “frozen face” to more natural alternative treatments like microneedling. Since Botox only lasts about 3 months, this is a natural alternative to injecting a deadly neurotoxin into your face. You can achieve natural long term results without the risks and side effects of laser resurfacing treatments.
For acne scars, this is one of the best solutions giving amazing results without destroying the skin surface. Collagen produced from this treatment makes your skin tighter and firmer. Microneedling is the perfect fix for furrow lines that don't disappear with Botox.

I have been Microneedling with different rollers and pens since 2015. Microneedling, medical grade skin care and my facial treatments with ultrasound, micro currents and radio frequency have greatly improved the health of my own skin without having to use any injectables.
All of my Microneedling devices are Health Canada approved.

"Sometimes you find yourself trying, and then you look at a picture of yourself and you go, 'Oh god, I look horrible,'" she continued. "I have done things that I regret, and luckily there are things that dissolve and go away. So that's good because it's not always been my best look."
