Microneedling for Acne Scar Removal Toronto

Microneedling For Acne Scar Removal in Toronto

Microneedling is an excellent treatment for scars and acne scars. It is a treatment which resurfaces the skin without laser or surgery and minimal downtime. Microneedling is a procedure which involves using fine needles to create hundreds of tiny invisible puncture wounds in the top layer of the skin. These tiny puncture wounds trigger the body’s natural healing response to heal these holes, in turn naturally producing collagen and elastin to tighten and improve the skins texture.

At Bellair Laser Clinic we use the Pen handheld device, a pen-like device that delivers the highest level of skin treatment, without surgery. The Pen features a 6 mm replaceable Pen tip with 12 needles that apply treatments to the skin evenly. The treatment is complete with the application of hyaluronic acid which moisturizes the skin, restores its internal environment and helps maintain natural functions in the skin.

Microneedling is a great option for anyone who wants to rejuvenate the skin, improve skin imperfections such as scars and acne scar, and maintain a smooth appearance. It can be used on the face, neck, chest and body. The treatment involves little to no discomfort or downtime. Depending on your skin condition, multiple sessions may be required to achieve the desired response and may be comfined with other scar removal treatments.
