How does it work?
During this procedure, the Eclipse Micropen Elite, which is Health Canada approved, is used to create micro-injuries to the skin. Once we have removed all makeup and desinfected the skin, a numbing cream is applied on the skin in order to make the treatment more confortable. Then, a Hyaluronic Acid serum is applied onto the skin. The depth of the needles is adjusted depending on the skin type and zones we are treating. The micro-needles will create thousands of micro-perforations at a very high speed, creating micro-channels that will absorb the serum into the skin. Those micro-injuries stimulate collagen and elastin, resulting in a skin rejuvenation. We end the treatment with led light therapy and Stratamed gel in order to reduce the redness, disconfort and downtime following the treatment.
