WHAT IS MICRO-NEEDLING?
Micro-needling is a popular form of collagen induction therapy. It requires little downtime, and results are seen for several months after your treatment.
Essentially, your face is aerated using precision engineered needles.
What is Micro-Needling?
Surgical-grade micro-needles reach beyond the epidermis into the dermis, causing pin-point bleeding and triggering the body’s spontaneous healing response. It effectively reduces wrinkles, tightens and thickens the skin, and – perhaps most impressively – fills and smooths scars.
WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM MICRO-NEEDLING?
Anyone over the age of 18, who is concerned about fine lines & wrinkles, enlarged pores, skin texture, sun spots/discolouration, scarring or stretch marks. That's a lot of folks.
We offer a very thorough (and free) consultation for this service; please be aware there are some health issues which are contra-indications for this particular form of collagen induction therapy.
WHERE CAN MICRO-NEEDLING BE PERFORMED?
While the most popular treatment areas are the face, neck and chest, pretty much anywhere on the body can be treated! (hands included)
HOW DOES MICRO-NEEDLING WORK?
The short answer is, we create micro injuries & the body responds to these by producing additional collagen. Extra collagen means plumper skin!
Micro-needling causes minimally invasive precision micro-injuries of the epidermis and dermis, without causing open wounds or ablative damage. The puncturing channels close after a short time and these micro-injuries trigger the body’s wound healing cascade, which induces an increased collagen production in the treated skin. Micro-needling triggers the construction of new tissue by stimulating healthy cell regeneration in precision-targeted areas that show the signs of aging.

Certified Medical-Grade Equipment
The Skaya micro-needing device® is ISO certified, meeting all standards for medical-grade equipment in manufacturing, materials, sterile packaging and more.
Fastest Motor on the Market
Starting at strokes per second (the fastest on the market!) the Skaya® micro-needling device can safely glide over the skin without scratching or tearing the skin. Poor quality micro-needling pens which operate at a slower insertion rate (100 to 120 strokes per second) can cause scratches and micro-tears in the tissue as the tip moves across the face. The result can be increased epidermal damage and increased risk of infection.
Where other scar and anti-aging treatments are ablative (destroying tissue), the Skaya® micro-needling device respects the integrity of the epidermis and dermis, using atraumatic (non-traumatic) perforations to gently trigger the generation of new tissue.
Skaya® is Licensed by Health Canada
