Our newest treatment is a master multitasker!
If you’re anything like us, a new year means you’ve got a lot on your plate! We could rename January “the month of multitasking” for all the new projects, plans and ideas that regularly appear. Perhaps you’re jumping on a conference call at the gym, dropping the kids off at school while rehearsing an important presentation for work, or picking up groceries while booking three appointments at the same time…sound familiar?
We respect multitasking – and love it even more in an innovative treatment that addresses multiple concerns at once. If you only have time to book one treatment, why not choose one that can cover all your bases at once?
Introducing… SkinPen® Microneedling!
This brilliant new treatment is coming to Somogyi Plastic Surgery this year, and we’re so excited to demonstrate the possibilities for your skin. Let’s explore why it’s one of our favourite new treatments.
How does Microneedling work?
Microneedling creates a series of tiny pricks along the skin to trigger the body’s natural healing process. As the skin is punctured, collagen production ramps up to rejuvenate skin from deep within the surface.
Why would I choose Microneedling?
This treatment is a great option if you’re looking to completely rejuvenate the appearance of your skin without downtime or surgery. It’s quick and effective, with long lasting results.
As we age, our bodies naturally produce less collagen and elastin; this can cause laxity, scarring, dullness, and other unfavourable skin symptoms. By creating new channels to collagen, microneedling is a way to trick the skin into cell turnover and skin rejuvenation. As production increases, results continue to appear in the months following treatment.
What makes Microneedling the great multitasker, and what can I expect from this treatment?
Microneedling is intended to address and improve your skin’s appearance, texture, and tone. The cell turnover and new growth resulting from this treatment often results in a renewed glow and brightened appearance while addressing a myriad of skincare concerns relating to aging, skin damage, scarring, and more.
Benefits of SkinPen Microneedling can include:
- Renewed brightness and radiance.
- Smoother, more refined skin texture.
- Less defined wrinkles or fine lines.
- No downtime or injections – easy to schedule amidst your other appointments.
- An improvement in the appearance of scars: collagen production is especially effective in filling depressed acne scarring on the face.
What does Microneedling feel like?
This treatment may cause some slight discomfort, but generally isn’t regarded as being painful or hard to bear. We use a numbing cream that virtually eliminates any discomfort during the procedure. The punctures created are so tiny that they feel like miniscule pinpricks against the skin. Most patients notice some mild redness following treatment which generally subsides within 24 hours.
