Microneedling in Vancouver with Dr. Jeannie MacDonald

Microneedling encourages collagen production with minimal discomfort and downtime.

Microneedling can enhance the appearance of your healthy, glowing skin, helping you discover the most naturally beautiful you.

What is Microneedling?

Microneedling utilizes the skin’s natural repair system to help improve the appearance of fine lines, pore size, mild scarring, and skin texture. Microneedling is an effective aesthetic treatment that creates microscopic pinpoint wounds in targeted areas with the goal of stimulating skin’s collagen and elastin production and improving skin’s overall appearance.

Suitable for all skin types, microneedling is well-tolerated by most patients and has few side effects. While microneedling is safe with little downtime, patients should expect to experience some redness, like that of a mild sunburn, for approximately 24-48 hours. Typically, microneedling is most effective in a series of 3-4 treatments spaced 30 days apart.

Dr. MacDonald and her skilled team take the time to understand your aesthetic goals, then they recommend only those procedures that help you achieve your desired results. When it comes to enhancing your appearance, Dr. MacDonald and her staff understand that subtle choices can make all the difference.

With minimal downtime and patient discomfort, microneedling refreshes your overall complexion and reveals smoother, healthier-looking skin. Microneedling can also be used to address:

  • Fine lines or wrinkles
  • Acne or surgical scars
  • Melasma, or other skin discoloration
  • Large pores
  • Reduced elasticity
  • Uneven skin tone

What Are the Benefits of a Vancouver Microneedling Treatment?

Collagen production slows down as we age. Microneedling is effective for patients of all skin types at increasing collagen production and smoothing and refreshing skin’s overall complexion. Generally, microneedling procedures help to reveal healthier, more youthful skin with little to no downtime and minimal discomfort.

Microneedling is an effective non-surgical treatment to help restore and rejuvenate your skin, allowing you to regain confidence in your appearance.

  • Enhanced, more youthful appearance

Am I A Good Candidate for Microneedling?

What Can I Expect During a Microneedling Procedure?

Dr. MacDonald and her expert team carefully customize all microneedling procedures for the most favorable result for each patient. Some general steps you can expect are:

Check-in and Anesthesia

Our team will greet you for check-in. Dr. MacDonald and her team will ensure you are comfortable, answer any last questions, and evaluate the treatment area. You will be treated with a topical anesthetic that takes 10-15 minutes to activate before your microneedling procedure.

Microneedling Procedure

Generally, each microneedling procedure takes 30 minutes. However, your treatment time will be determined by your needs and the area being treated. Most patients report minimal discomfort and experience only the mild vibrations of the device.

Microneedling Aftercare

Your skin may appear slightly pink, like a mild sunburn, for 24-48 hours following your microneedling procedure. Other common side effects are dryness, tightness, tenderness, and peeling. However, these do not require further treatment and should resolve within a few days.

Our expert team will provide soothing, moisturizing treatments to ensure your skin will not dry out. We will also work with you to create an effective post-procedure skin care regimen.

Microneedling procedures require minimal downtime, and most patients can return to normal activities. However, you should refrain from strenuous activities and exercise for 24-48 hours following your microneedling treatment.

As with any non-surgical procedure, following the instructions of our expert staff regarding limiting physical activity, cleansing, and avoiding sun exposure is fundamental to ensuring optimal results from microneedling treatment in Vancouver.

How Soon Will I See My Vancouver Microneedling Results?

The results of your microneedling procedure are both immediate and progressive. You may experience redness, like a sunburn, for the first 24-48 hours. However, within a week of the treatment, your skin’s surface will appear brighter and look more rejuvenated. Microneedling promotes new collagen growth so that you will notice even more improvement to your skin’s appearance about 4-6 months after your final microneedling treatment.
