Advancing with the times and gaining in popularity, microneedling Toronto has been around for decades. The technology of microneedling has taken research from all over the world to create the tools and techniques we have today to perform this treatment at its best. Understanding the history of collagen induction therapy will help you better understand the science behind microneedling Toronto and why we offer this popular V2 Beauty Booster treatment at Sovereign Skin.
Collagen induction therapy goes as far back as 1905. A German dermatologist named Kromayer first reported his technique involving the use of rotating wheels and rasps to perform controlled resurfacing abrasion of the skin. He used this technique to treat keratoses, acne scars, and areas of hyperpigmentation.
Collagen induction therapy in more recent times became referred to as microneedling Toronto. This is a skin treatment in which microneedles penetrate and perforate the skin, creating superficial wounds that stimulate the production of collagen and other growth factors. The dermis layer of skin contracts and heals to create glowing, youthful, and firm skin with a decrease in fine lines, acne scars, and other similar, problematic facial concerns. The idea is to cause micro injuries to the skin, forcing it to repair itself by regenerating new cells. This is only positively effective when causing the correct type, depth, and amount of injury. The V2 Beauty Booster system does just that – with pre-set fields and controlled settings, accuracy is enhanced for optimal results. Stimulating collagen growth with microneedling causes the newly formed tissue to be formed with stronger collagen and elastin. The papillary dermis is where the elastin and collagen fibres are formulated which makes it the most important layer of the skin to target. Safe on all skin tones, the V2 microneedling Beauty Booster an excellent choice for all, but is especially enticing for people that are limited with facial rejuvenation options such as people with darker skin tones.
With current advances in technology, numerous different microneedling devices have paved the way for today’s newest gadgets. One of the best new integrated skin treatments is the V2 Beauty Booster microneedling treatment. The V2 Beauty Booster combines a microneedling Toronto technique with the superficial injection of Redensity l, which acts as support for the best new cell formation. It’s a 2-in-1 facial rejuvenation treatment!
Redensity l is a non-cross-linked hyaluronic acid product that includes a unique patented formula of effective natural components (amino acids, antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins). The combination of microneedling Toronto and Redensity I helps optimise the skin, stimulating collagen production and creating an overall luminous glow to the skin. Think of it as the food for the new cells.
Redensity I is the non-cross-linked product that is used because it is meant to be absorbed into the skin within 24 to 48 hours (unlike cross-linked products that are used to increase volume and can take up to 12 months to dissolve). Products such as dermal fillers are injected much deeper into the skin than the Redensity l, whereas the microneedling insertion of the Redensity 1 guarantees its placement at a precise level and where it will be most effective in treating the condition of the skin’s surface.
The V2 Injector gun used for this particular microneedling treatment Toronto is extremely precise in product placement and dosage. The injector gun can decrease the length of the procedure and the sensation felt by using multi-needles (9-point for the face and 5-point for the hands). This handheld stamping gun makes the microneedling treatment easy to customize for patients and has specific settings for use on other body parts as well, such as neck and hands. The collaboration of product and microneedling Toronto is truly brilliant, providing outstanding results, which is why we offer it at Sovereign Skin. The Redensity l helps hydrate and even out skin tone, diminish discoloration, and give you a radiant glow. Together, the skin texture feels more firm, plump, and refreshed. This V2 Beauty Booster microneedling treatment in Toronto is often used to treat acne scars, fine lines, and dry, tired-looking skin.
Another highlight about this treatment is that there is no prep, very little downtime, or aftercare that is necessary. It is recommended that the patient stops consumption of any food, drinks, or medications that are blood thinners 3 days prior to procedure (i.e. ginseng, fish oils, ginger, green tea, vitamin E, aspirin). This will simply help reduce bleeding and chances of bruising, allowing patients to recover quicker.
At the time of your Sovereign Skin microneedling procedure, we will offer a topical numbing cream for patient comfort. Once the topical numbing cream is removed, we sterilize the face and begin the treatment. The microneedling treatment is not pain-free, but it is very tolerable with a numbing cream application.
A full face treatment takes about 30 minutes from start to finish. It is normal to have small bumps and a little redness on the treatment location. This will settle, allowing the product to be absorbed over the next 24 to 48 hours. It is important to keep this area clean and out of the sun during this time.
After the V2 microneedling treatment, patients are asked to clean their face before going to bed and use a gentle cleanser and simple moisturizer with no active ingredients. We can recommend our Sovereign Skin favourite skincare items if patients would like to know what is best suited for their skin type.
The following morning, post-treatment, the patient is welcome to resume their normal skin care routine and apply makeup if they wish. For the first 48 hours, cleansing and applying product on the face with light pressure is recommended. After the microneedling treatment, some patients may experience minor pinprick bruising, which is completely normal and will usually subside within 2 to 10 days.
Patients love that this procedure provides amazing results with such little effort and downtime. For optimal results, it is highly recommended to have a package of 3 treatments spaced 3 weeks apart.
The average cost for the V2 Beauty Booster microneedling package of 3 sessions usually ranges between $1,400 and $2,500, depending on the clinic that you choose. There is a discount applied to microneedling packages that are purchased at Sovereign Skin. Because this treatment deals with needles and blood, it is important to choose a reputable clinic, such as Sovereign Skin, with professionally trained medical estheticians who are overseen by a doctor. Sterilization and quality care are essential for safety and optimal results.
As this V2 Beauty Booster microneedling treatment is safe for all skin tones, there are very few risks and complications associated. As mentioned before, patients can experience minor bruising, temporary redness and swelling, as well as small pinpoint pricks which disappear within 48 hours. The only patients who are at risk with this treatment are woman who are pregnant and or breastfeeding, patients who are undergoing laser therapy within 2 weeks before or after microneedling, patients who have a history of autoimmune disease or keloid scarring, patients have had Botox or fillers less than 2 weeks prior to treatment, as well as patients who have had a chemical peel or dermabrasion less than 2 weeks prior to treatment. These contradictions are quite standard across the board with almost all skincare treatments and procedures.
The V2 Beauty Booster Microneedling’s high satisfaction rate, little downtime, very low risks, and safety for all skin tone safe capabilities make it widely popular. This treatment is quickly becoming one of the top treatment choices worldwide and rightfully so. The results and benefits speak for themselves. Stats show that over 90% of patients were satisfied with their microneedling treatment and would recommend it to others. Over the weeks and months following the treatment, the collagen stimulation continues to improve the skin. Long-term benefits like this mean that the patient enjoys the results longer. In a world where time is priceless, setting the clock back a little on your aging skin is satisfying. As they say, your face is going to represent you for a long time, so take care of it.
