New at TCSC: SkinPen® Microneedling

The Cosmetic Surgery Clinic, SkinPen microneedlingWhat if we told you there was a safe, minimally invasive, no-downtime way to treat acne scars, wrinkles and fine lines? What if it could also improve skin texture and tone on the face and body? Well, there is, and we have it here at our cosmetic surgery clinic in Waterloo, Ontario: SkinPen® microneedling. Effective for all skin types, and ideal any time of year, our patients are falling in love with the beautiful, lasting results of this popular treatment.

As we age, the natural architecture of our skin deteriorates, affecting the health and appearance of our skin. Microneedling has been used for decades to trigger the body’s natural wound healing process, resulting in beautiful, youthful looking skin.

How does SkinPen® microneedling work?

The SkinPen microneedling device comfortably creates thousands of controlled micro-punctures in the skin to trigger the body’s natural wound healing process. This results in the formation of new collagen and elastin—the two proteins predominantly responsible for the structure of the skin—and the effective treatment of many skin conditions. In other words, microneedling fools your body into sending more restorative collagen and elastin than the area needs, prompting tissue remodeling and improving the appearance of your skin.

The short treatments—lasting approximately 30 minutes—are performed by a member of The Beauty Nurse® team at TCSC, and overseen by Dr. Shenker. There is little to no downtime, and most patients can return to normal activities within 24 hours, with post-procedure effects similar to that of a mild to moderate sunburn.

How many treatments will I need?

You may notice results after just one treatment, though we usually recommend an initial series of three treatments, spaced 30 days apart. The recommended number of treatments and their frequency will depend on your particular skin condition and treatment goals.

What results will I see?

SkinPen microneedling effectively treats acne scars, wrinkles and fine lines, and improves skin texture and tone on all body parts including the face, neck, and décolletage. Following your treatment with The Beauty Nurse® team at TCSC, you can expect firmer, smoother skin, with results lasting up to 6 months. It’s so effective that plastic surgery patients visiting us from London, Ontario and other cities come back to see us for further improvements with SkinPen.
