Microneedling | Toronto Acne Scar Reduction (Acne,Scars,Anti-aging)

Micro-needling therapy or collagen induction therapy is a minimally-invasive non-surgical and nonabrasive procedure for facial rejuvenation that involves the use of a micro-needling device to create controlled skin injury.

Micro-needling-therapy-toronto

It is a safe and increasingly popular skin renewal technique to restore the healthy youthful appearance of your skin at a fraction of the cost of comparable treatments and with minimal or zero downtime. Micro-needling therapy have comparable results to ‘ablative techniques’ such as Fractional Lasers and deep chemical peels but is much less invasive and does not require the removal of the skin’s surface. As a result, healing time is shorter and there is no posttreatment sensitivity to UV light. Micro-needling is also one of the few advanced skin therapies that is suitable for treating all skin types, including ethnic skin, fragile skin around the eyes, mouth, hands, neck and décolletage.

As each fine needle punctures the skin, it creates a channel or micro-wound. The controlled injury triggers the body to fill these micro-wounds by producing new collagen and elastin in the papillary dermis. In addition, new capillaries are formed. This neovascularization and neocollagenesis following treatment leads to reduction of scars and skin rejuvenation, i.e., improved skin texture, firmness and hydration.

All clients are required to have a full consultation and prescribed home care products to support the skin for a minimum of two weeks before treatment commences.

Includes topical anaesthetic, dermal needling treatment, post treatment hydrating serums and after care. No- needle mezotherapy post treatment is highly recommended to reduce inflammation in the skin and speed results.

POST PROCEDURE CARE:

  • Micro -needling is well tolerated by patients but dryness, scaling, redness and swelling may be seen after treatment, lasting for several days or longer, depending on the depth of penetration of the needles.
  • Sun protection for several weeks is recommended.
  • In the case of acne scars, after the skin needling procedure, the face should be cleaned with a gentle cleanser before bed. The next day, the face may be cleansed and makeup, lotions and other topical products applied as usual.
  • As the micro holes close quickly, postoperative wound infection is rare.
  • Rejuvenation of skin may be seen as soon as 2 weeks and as long as 6-8 months after the medical procedure.
  • Burn scars are slow to respond. It can take up to 6 months to 1 year to see the final results from a single treatment.

How many skin needling procedures does one need?

The number of needling procedures depends on the individual skin condition. Three to four treatments may be needed for moderate acne scars.

BENEFITS:

  • Reducing scars (including hypertrophic scars) caused by acne, surgery or thermal burns
  • Fading stretch marks
  • Reducing fine lines and deep wrinkles
  • Tightening sagging skin

No needle Mesotherapy treatment

This non-invasive treatment is a great alternative for clients who do not like injectables such as botox and fillers and will visibly improve skin appearance. Skin will appear smoother, firmer and more hydrated, revealing a more radiant, youthful you.

Mesofiller treatment no needle mesotherapy skeyndor toronto

How does this treatment work?

A topical solution containing a potent cocktail of highly active ingredients – tailored to your specific  skin concerns – is applied to the skin. A pulsed low-frequency electric current is then applied, which ionises the molecules in the serum, creating small ‘channels’ in the skin through which the ingredients travel down to penetrate the deeper layers of the dermis.

With repeated movement of the head of the wand across the skin, active ingredients are pushed deeper and deeper through the dermal layers, allowing for optimal absorption of vital nutrients such as minerals, hyaluronic acid, Vitamin C, anti-oxidants and collagen.

No-needle mesotherapy offers targeted treatments for both face and body. The results are visible within a few days of the initial treatment, thanks to high concentrations of active ingredients being delivered deep into to the mesoderm.
We recommend an initial series of 4- 6 treatments. To maintain best results, monthly maintenance sessions are suggested.
Use no-needle mesotherapy in conjunction with other anti-aging treatments for optimal results.

Non surgical Radio Frequency Face lift

What is Radio frequency?

Radio Frequency (RF) Facial Treatment is a good option for people looking for overall improvement without injections.  Remarkable results are achieved  with RF, it stimulates collagen production as well as shortening the collagen fibers resulting in a lifting, tightening effect on the skin.

Radio-frequency-treatment-toronto

The treatments are pain free as we use the latest technology.  There is no down time and results are noticeable from the first treatment.  6-8 treatments are recommended at biweekly intervals and thereafter maintenance treatments every 4-6 weeks.

How does it work?

Radio Frequency treatments work be delivery of RF energy (in the form of heat) to the dermis and sub-dermal layers without damaging the top layer of skin or epidermis.  Heating in this area causes collagen contraction, realignment and new collagen production which continues to build over several months.  By promoting the production of healthy collagen, Radio Frequency can help firm up your face resulting in tighter, younger looking skin.

Applicable range:

  • Facelift.
  • Skin lift around eyes.
  • Tighten neck skin.
  • Improve drooping and slack nose wrinkle.
  • Firm forehead skin and lessen wrinkle.
  • Lift and tighten breasts.
  • Tighten and sculpture the back.
  • Tighten and sculpture the waist.
  • Sculpture the buttocks and legs.
  • Tender skin of hands.

What is Monopolar?

Monopolar or unipolar refers to a device having one pole or electrode.

With monopolar delivery, the current from the generating machine flows through the body from a single electrode (hand piece) and meets maximum resistance in the area around the tip of the hand piece, where tissue heating in the subdermal layers then occurs. Grounding, or “return pad” may also be used, attached to the patient’s lower back or abdomen, to provide a low resistance path for the current to flow back to the generating machine, to complete the electrical circuit.

radio_1

What is BIOPLAR?

Biopolar refers to a device having two poles or electrodes.

With bipolar delivery, the current from the generating machine flows only through the tissue which is between the two electrodes on the handpiece; these electrodes start and complete the electrical circuit. Hence, with bipolar delivery, no current flows through the rest of the body, so no grounding or return pad is needed.

Does Radio Frequency Treatment work for skin tightening of the face?

What is Radio Frequency Treatment?

Radio Frequency Treatment is a non-invasive treatment which uses radio waves directed through a probe head which is rested onto the skin. The radio waves are an energy, directed at the skin to produce a heating effect. Radio Frequency Treatment has been used for many decades for a variety of medical applications.

How does Radio Frequency Treatment work?

The beam of Radio Frequency will target deeper layers of skin, heating them up. This creates stimulation of the skin and in particular, the collagen, a substance which gives elasticity to the skin. The radio frequencies cause water molecules in the deeper layers of skin to vibrate. This in turn creates friction which causes the heating effect. When heat is applied to collagen fibres, they shrink and tighten up, and over time following the treatment, new collagen also forms. Whilst the deeper skin layers are being heated, the doctor will cool down the top layers of skin.

What will it achieve?

The treatment can be used on any part of the body to tighten any loose and sagging skin. It is also suitable for any age group. After treatment the skin contours more to the body as it has tightened up and it will also become rejuvenated, being younger and fresher in appearance. It is effectively used on areas of the face and neck, the breasts and tummy, and upper arms and thighs. But it can be used on any part of the body that requires the skin to be firmed. It is an appropriate treatment for the face because the ageing process sees a reduction in the amount of fat, particularly on the cheeks. Instead of plumping out the tissues (the outcome of filler treatments), it simply aims to tighten up the sagging skin in areas such as the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and jowls.

What about after the Treatment?

The great news is that there is no recovery time, no healing scars, no anaesthetic required and little or no pain during or after the treatment. All that may be noticed is a slight reddening of the skin for about one day. The collagen tightening occurs at the actual time of treatment but new collagen is also stimulated to form over time after the treatment.

The treatment is quite lasting and many people find that it is effective for around two years, depending on individual ageing processes. To be effective, most doctors will advise six to eight sessions of treatment, with each treatment lasting up to three quarters of an hour. There may be additional follow up treatments. The treatment should be viewed as something that will deliver steady improvements rather than an immediate solution.

How does radio frequency affect skin tightening?

RF produces a mild increase in the temperature of the skin and subcutaneous area below the skin. When this warming is sustained for several minutes collagen synthesis begins and over a series of treatments visible skin tightening occurs.

What treatment time and frequency is required for maximum results?

Typically the face and neck require a series of 4 to 6 weekly treatments lasting 30 to 45 minutes. Body treatment sessions may be 40-60 minutes depending on the number of areas treated.

Growing older, putting on the weight is a major concern as we age! As we all know when people gain weight, you can see it in their face. This is because the body does store some fat below the skin in the specific areas of face.  You shouldn’t be surprised, then when a slender person has chubby cheeks or double chin.

Radiofrequency (RF) for skin tightening

RF uses electrical energy to heat the deep layers of the skin, whilst protecting the outer layer. Heating in this area, without damaging the outer layers of skin, causes microscopic changes to the tissues and collagen contraction, with subsequent collagen remodelling over the months that pass. Treatments are comfortable, have no healing time and give immediate results. You are able to resume all your usual activities straight after. A series of treatments is usually required for optimal results.

How safe is Radiofrequency (RF) for skin tightening?

RF technology has been used in medicine (surgery) for over 30 years for haemostasis (blood coagulation) and tissue ablation (electrosurgery). More recently it has been applied as a means of shrinking lax connective tissues through collagen denaturation. RF is a clinically proven and safe treatment technology. There are rarely any side effects, but some patients may experience a mild redness that subsides 1-2 hours after the treatment.

Am I suitable for Radiofrequency (RF) treatments? If so, which RF treatment is right for me?

Radiofrequency addresses the following concerns:

  • Droopy eyelids/looking tired
  • Flattening of the cheeks
  • Lines from nose to mouth (nasolabial folds)
  • Lines causing corners of the mouth to turn down (marionette lines)
  • Loosening jaw line (jowls)
  • Double chin
  • Loose neck

Radiofrequency is used to tighten the skin and stimulate collagen production, and is best suited to patients with mild to moderate sagging of facial tissues, usually those in their mid thirties to fifties, with any skin colour.

Are Radiofrequency (RF) treatments painful?

RF treatments are generally comfortable and relaxing. This is one of the reasons for its popularity.

What is the difference between Radiofrequency (RF) and Laser/IPL?

Firstly, RF works by heating up the deeper layers without damaging the skin’s surface, and is meant for skin tightening. Laser and IPL work in the upper layers of the skin and is meant for more superficial skin issues such as pigmentation, acne, spider veins, tone and texture.

Secondly, RF treatments are suitable for all skin colors, including dark and pigmented skin. Unlike lasers and IPL, RF energy is “color blind” meaning that it has no affinity to skin pigmentation, such as melanin.

How Soon Will I See Results?

When you first begin your microcurrent facial sculpting treatments the effects will not last as long because the results are cumulative, meaning they get better over time and the results last longer each time as the series of treatments continues. By the 6th to 7th treatment your muscle memory starts to take over and the results improve substantially lasting longer each time. Towards the end of the 6 week microcurrent facial sculpting treatment regimen, the results will become even more permanent and the look is maintained by microcurrent facial sculpting treatments every 4-6 weeks. If you stop microcurrent facial treatments you do run the risk of losing muscle memory within approximately 6 months so we always recommend continued treatments to help “re-educate” the muscles so you keep the youthful look for years to come!Micro-current Face Lifting Toronto Yorkille 112 Most people need a course of around 10 micro–current sessions to see the full benefits – although many claim to see immediate results from the first treatment. The exact number you need will depend on your skin tissue and muscle tone – not necessarily on your age.

Some clients notice a difference after the first treatment. Other clients will notice it after 3 or 4 treatments. The important thing to realize is that the effect is cumulative — that is, your face will become more tightened and toned with each treatment. When you get the desired effect, you can begin your maintenance program of having a treatment anywhere from 4 – 12 weeks, depending on your unique body.

The micro current face lift procedure itself takes approximately one hour to complete and is virtually painless. The micro-current face lift procedure requires no anesthesia, no recovery time, no down time from work, and has no irritating side effects.

Oxygen Facial Treatment

Like all living things, our skin needs oxygen to survive, reproduce and regenerate. In younger skin, this process is very efficient, but as we age, the micro capillaries degenerate and skin does not receive the nourishment it needs. As a result, the metabolism of our skin cells slows down, collagen and elastin content are reduced and fine lines, discolorations and wrinkles begin to appear.

Pure Oxygen Injection System provides the painless treatment which makes use of oxygen to inject special active elements deep into the skin, such as oxygen serum and so on. These special active elements can reach the interspaces between the scarfskin cells and make positive effects.

Microdermabrasion

What Is Microdermabrasion? A Powerful Anti-Aging Treatment by Anitra Brown, About.com Guide

Microdermabrasion, also known as microderm, is one of the easiest and most effective anti-aging treatments you can get. Its benefits are many: microderm softens fine lines and wrinkles, helps to smooth coarsely textured skin, decreases the appearance of scarring, decreases pore size, and reduces superficial hyper-pigmentation, also known as age spots.

Microdermabrasion also makes it easier for high-tech skin care products to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin and help build collagen, which gives skin its youthful appearance.

The Changing Technology of Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is essentially powerful mechanical exfoliation with an expensive machine, generally either the original crystal microdermabrasion technology or the newer diamond-tip microdermabrasion. What Is Microdermabrasion?Both work by removing the uppermost layer of dead skin cells from the face, chest and hands. True microdermabrasion is usually done in a day spa, medical spa or specialized skin care studio. It gives results you can’t achieve with a home microdermabrasion kit, which is basically a scrub for the face that is often too abrasive and can even irritate skin.

The original microdermabrasion technology, which has been around since the’80s, is called crystal microdermabrasion. It uses a wand to both spray and vacuum up aluminum oxide crystals, also known as corundum, the second hardest mineral after diamonds. Crystal microdermabrasion might also appear on a spa menu as particle resurfacing, power peel, derma-peel or Parisian peel. Other types of crystals that are used in some machines, including salt and baking soda, but they are not very common.

Growing in popularity is the newer diamond-tip microdermabrasion. It achieves the same results but with less discomfort and without the crystal residue at the end of the treatment. However, some women still prefer the more aggressive feel of the crystal microderm machines because they can tell something is “happening”.

The latest technology to hit the market is the HydraFacial, which uses water to exfoliate and extract while infusing the skin with serums.

 

The Benefits of Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion can achieve dramatic results, but it is highly dependent on the skill of the esthetician. In general, it’s best if you get it from an esthetician you already know and trust.

For the best results, it is generally recommended get a series of treatments. Your esthetician should be able to recommend the number that is appropriate for your skin type and condition. A typical protocal is six treatments about 10 to 14 days apart.

Because the machine can be adjusted depending on skin type and condition, even people with sensitive skin can get a treatment from a skilled esthetician. Doctors with medical spas can own more powerful machines, but more is not always better with microderm.

The price for a single microdermabrasion treatment usually ranges from $100 – $150. With a series of six, you sometimes get one free. It takes about 30 minutes and there’s no down-time for the skin to recover. That’s why it’s also sometimes called a “lunchtime peel.”

It is important to realize that you have taken off the outermost layer of the skin, which is also its protection, so this is not the time to go to the beach. Be careful with your skin a few days after the microdermabrasion treatment: don’t do vigorous exercise and don’t expose your skin to the sun. Wear a gentle physical sunscreen, even if its a cloudy day.

Don’t expect to get the same results with a home microdermabrasion kit, which works more like a scrub. In fact, you can easily overdo it and irritate your skin.

microdermabras_03microdermabras_05microdermabraison_model

 

How Microdermabrasion Works

The crystal microdermabrasion device consists of a compressor that draws in air through a hand-held wand. When the wand touches the skin, a vacuum is created. Aluminum oxide crystals, also known as corundum (the second-hardest mineral next to diamonds) blast across the skin’s surface, picking up dead surface skin cells along the way. The crystals and dead skin cells are quickly sucked up through a different tube in the same wand and go to a disposal bag.

The depth of exfoliation is controlled by the strength of the vacuum and crystal flow, which is determined by esthetician. He or she makes two passes over your skin, sometimes a third if your skin is thick enough or if there is an area that needs special attention, like a scar or brown spot.

Crystal microdermabrasion can be uncomfortable, especially around the sensitive tissue of the mouth and nose, but it should not be painful. The esthetician should be checking in with you about your comfort level during the treatment. If anything hurts, speak up.

The esthetician, who should be wearing gloves, a mask and eye protection, also leaves traces of the crystal on your face, which might be red afterwards. Your eyes should also be protected.

Diamond-tip microdermabrasion uses the same vacuum technology and hand-held wand, but there aren’t any crystals moving through the tip. The diamond tip itself exfoliates the skin and the vacuum whisks the dead skin away. There are many different tips with various grades of roughness, and the esthetician choose the correct one for your skin type and condition.

Diamond-tip microdermabrasion is much less uncomfortable, but achieves the same results. It is also usually better for sensitive skin.

 

Cautions on Microdermabrasion

  • Do not get microdermabrasion if you have extremely sensitive skin, diabetes, vascular conditions like rosacea, skin inflammation, bacterial infections, lack of tactile sensation, keloid scarring, cuts and abrasions, or have gotten Botox within 72 hours. Other contraindications to microdermabrasion include sunburn, viral infections like herpes simplex, and acne. If you are taking anti-coagulant drugs.
  • Apply sunscreen and stay out of the sun after your treatment. Along with the dead skin cells, you have removed some of your protection.

RF Microneedling

March 20, 2015

RF Microneedling Combined with Stem Cells

The process of microneedling creates micro-punctures in the skin, which triggers the body’s natural healing process. The skin becomes tighter while reducing fine lines and acne scarring because there is a heightened production of elastin and collagen.

RF Microneedling means radiofrequency energy is used in addition to the traditional microneedling procedure. The RF energy is introduced through small needles. RF energy is injected deep into the skin, which helps further the benefits of tighter skin and getting rid of fine lines or acne scars. Since the RF energy can travel deeper into the skin, it can produce quicker and better looking results.

Combining Microneedling and Stem Cells

The growth elements found in stem cells can help regenerate aged skin, help grow skin, nails, and hair, heal wounds, and repair damaged tissues. When combined with the natural healing and hydration process that is triggered by microneedling, plant stem cells can be used with microneedling to treat the body, face, and neck.
