Microneedling in Vancouver at Limelight Wellness Centre
Experience the transformative power of microneedling, our advanced treatment that harnesses the natural healing abilities of your skin, stimulating collagen production and rejuvenating your complexion for a radiant and youthful glow.
What exactly is microneedling?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that involves using a device equipped with tiny needles to create micro-injuries on the skin’s surface. This process stimulates the body’s natural healing response, which leads to increased collagen production and skin rejuvenation. The needles used in microneedling can range in size from 0.5 to 2.5 millimeters, depending on the desired outcome and the area being treated.
Microneedling can be used to treat a variety of skin concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin texture. The procedure is typically performed by a trained aesthetician or dermatologist and can be done on the face, neck, chest, and other areas of the body.
The advantageous value of Microneedling
The great thing about this form of treatment is that there’s no application of heat involved and it’s all mechanical, so microneedling is safe and fine for use on all kinds of skin colours and skin types. As previously mentioned, collagen induction therapy is a natural way to produce more collagen and elastin to help turn back the time on the skin’s normal aging process. This treatment helps to treat all kinds of skin conditions including deep wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, clogged pores, scarring, loose skin, skin discolouration, and other similar skin issues.
How does it work?
Micro-needling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, is a minimally-invasive procedure in which tiny, sterile needles pierce the skin, creating thousands of microscopic channels.
This activates a healing response in the skin leading to the formation of fibroblasts (cells that make collagen), release of growth factors, and ultimately deposition of new collagen and elastin.
Is it painful?
Because the needles’ size are microscopic it only causes a pressure like sensation at the time of the procedure and it’s not painful.
It depends on the condition of the skin; it is usually every 4 weeks. After a series of treatments, visible results are seen including: skin firmness, tightening, improvement in skin texture, and a reduction in wrinkles and scarring.

Dermal Fillers FAQ’s
With assistance from numbing cream before a microneedling procedure, patients find the experience quite tolerable from a pain and discomfort perspective. As the infamous saying goes, “no pain, no gain,” but with this collagen induction therapy, there is lots of gain with very minimal pain.
Every patient’s needs are unique, so the number of treatments needed is determined at the initial consultation. Our experienced collagen induction therapy technicians closely evaluate the skin, learn about what the patient wants to see for results, and then recommendations are made. Typically three to six treatments are needed unless there is severe sun damage, significant scarring, or deep wrinkles to deal with, then more treatments will likely be needed. Once the desired results are witnessed, then a patient only needs an annual treatment session to maintain those results.
What happens is a dermaroller is used to make small punctures within the skin – the body reads these small punctures as tiny wounds and sends fibroblasts to every affected area that received penetration. The body interprets these tiny wounds as a form of injury, and quickly starts to repair the damage which increases the levels of collagen and elastin – making the skin thicker to prevent future potential “injuries,” and this beautifully enhances the texture and appearance.
It’s important to not wear any makeup for the rest of the day following a treatment to leave the punctures open. Also, a patient should relax at least a day or two after a procedure is done to avoid any kind of perspiration from being generated and to minimize the amount of blood flow to the face as it can cause unwanted irritations to occur.
