FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
As we age and battle skin conditions, the natural architecture of our skin deteriorates, which leads to fine lines, wrinkles, large pores and uneven skin texture. Collagen induction therapy, also known as microneedling, Is a great way to address these signs of aging at the cellular level. Microneedling comfortably creates thousands of micro-injuries in the skin to trigger the body’s natural wound healing process, This results in skin remodeling, including the formation of collagen and elastin, the two proteins predominantly responsible for the structure of the skin. The outcome is beautiful, youthful looking skin.
During a microneedling treatment, the precise needles in the SkinPen create micro-injuries in the skin – needles puncture the skin, creating some physical trauma. These small wounds stimulate the skin and prompt it to produce collagen, which rejuvenates the skin and creates new skin cells. It repairs the skin and creates a youthful, tighter appearance. The depth of the needle penetration is adjusted based on your skin type.
There are a variety of conditions that microneedling can improve. They include hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores, acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks, texture, and lax skin. If you have any infections, active acne, lesions, or difficulty with wound healing, then this treatment is not recommended for you. Those who use acne medications like retinol are advised to discontinue usage of them for several days before the appointment. Microneedling is not recommended for those who are pregnant.
Most patients find the experience to be relatively comfortable. The idea of having needles in your skin may sound painful, but since they only penetrate the surface layer, only mild discomfort is experienced. You will notice mild skin irritation following the procedure; side effects include redness, dryness, and swelling. In rare cases, patients may experience bruising, bleeding, or infections.
It takes an average of 5 days to see results from a microneedling treatment. Your results will continue to improve over the coming days and weeks; as collagen production increases, some patients see the best results several months after their treatment. Patients notice a difference in the appearance of their skin for up to 6 months. With more appointments, you will see improved results; the effects are cumulative.
Known to some as the “Viva” or “skin resurfacing”, this non-ablative treatment combines NanoFractional Radio Frequency and SmartScan technology to improve the overall texture of your skin by addressing a wide range of common concerns. What makes it unique is its ability to cover a greater surface area and treat multiple issues in the same session.
By using radio frequency waves to safely deliver heat to deeper skin layers through 160 tiny pins, this device creates “micro damage” to highly specific, targeted areas. This stimulates your body’s natural repair processes, which leads to a stronger collagen support network and the growth of new skin cells. As the body repairs itself, you will notice smoother skin texture and reduction of dark spots. To reduce recovery time, the “Viva” delivers the waves in separate columns that only treat a portion of the area. By leaving more of the tissue untouched, your body is able to heal faster, thereby eliminating the need to take time off work.
Our skin resurfacing treatments safely and effectively reduce signs of skin damage and improve the appearance of uneven skin textures – such as scars, wrinkles, enlarged pores, discolouration, acne scarring or stretch marks – no matter how fair or dark your skin tone. Within just a couple of sessions, you’ll notice a naturally smoother, more radiant, and healthier-looking complexion that lasts.
TriBella combines the power of three unique non-surgical procedures into one complete skin renewal treatment — resulting in incredibly smoother, younger, healthier-looking skin. This high-intensity non-invasive solution gives highly visible results faster and in fewer treatments. TriBella combines photofacial, anti-aging, and skin resurfacing treatments in one session — making it the most comprehensive and effective answer for complete skin renewal.
(1) Photofacial: TriBella photofacials use precise bursts of intense pulsed light to improve the appearance of uneven skin tone and sun damage. The light targets and reduces the hemoglobin pigment inside visible blood vessels and dark pigmented spots. The result is glowing, younger-looking skin.
(2) Anti-Aging: TriBella anti-aging uses a comfortable combination of energy types to produce heat beneath the skin, helping to promote healthy blood flow and increase the production of collagen and elastic fibers. The result is skin that looks tighter and younger, and with fewer lines or wrinkles.
(3) Skin Resurfacing: TriBella skin resurfacing improves skin texture by delivering energy deep into the skin, using tiny electrode pins
to create micro-dermal wounds with minimal impact
on the epidermis. As the skin heals, it naturally boosts collagen and elastin production for total skin renewal.
(1) Tone: Photofacial treatment corrects discoloration, fades age spots, reduces sun damage, and improves skin tone.
(2) Elasticity: Anti-aging treatment erases fine lines, reduces wrinkles, and firms up skin.
(3) Texture: Skin resurfacing treatment smoothens out uneven skin texture, scars, rosacea, enlarged pores, stretch marks, and other skin textural conditions.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy uses your own blood to encourage the production of new collagen. Our blood contains platelets, which work to heal damaged tissues including our skin and hair follicles.
During a PRP Therapy, a small amount of blood is extracted from your arm and placed in a specially designed centrifuge. The blood is spun at such a rate that the red blood cells separate from the platelets and plasma. The ‘platelet rich’ plasma is then injected back into the patient, helping to rejuvenate the trouble areas.
