Microneedling, (also known as CIT - Collagen Induction Therapy) is a cosmetic procedure that involves pricking the skin with tiny sterilized needles, prompting your body to generate new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer and more toned skin.

What to Expect with Microneedling

Microneedling is an effective treatment for anyone looking to improve the appearance of scars or stretch marks, minimize wrinkles, improve the quality and texture of your skin or treat acne/cystic acne.

During the treatment, the Eclipse Micropen is used to create micro-injuries to the skin to aid in the production of collagen and elastin

Treatment Options

Although we offer individual sessions, Microneedling results are optimal after a series of treatments:

Your Questions

Does Microneedling Hurt?

Your comfort is our first priority. We allow for an extra 15 minutes of treatment in your booking time to ensure the numbing cream has fully activated. When numbing cream is used prior to your Collagen Induction Therapy procedure, patients find Microneedling to be very tolerable and most clients report little to no discomfort. 

How long is the treatment?

The booking time is 75 minutes, which includes 15 minutes for numbing and 15 minutes for treatment review and post-procedure instructions.  

Is there any downtime after Microneedling?

Microneedling is unique in that it is non-ablative and does not damage the skin. The body’s regenerative properties build new natural collagen, elastin networks and a thicker epidermis with virtually no downtime. Your skin will be red post-treatment for approximately 48 hours, and the surface will need to be protected with sunscreen for a minimum of 2 weeks post-treatment.

When will I see the results?

As soon as the micro-pricks are created within the skin, the body’s healing processes respond to heal them. This means collagen production is accelerated, along with cellular turnover. While some results - such as tightening, smoothing of the skin, visibility of pores - may be immediate, optimal results will be visible four to six weeks after the procedure and with repeated treatments. 

How often should I come in for this treatment?

We recommend coming in for Microneedling every 4-6 weeks for beautiful and consistent results (this is where our Packages really come in handy!).

What can I add onto this treatment?

Dermaplaning is a great treatment to add pre-Microneedling to assist with cell turnover, and to leave the skin looking smooth and fresh.

Our Celluma Treatment Booster is another great option to add-on to Microneedling, either during or post-treatment!

How can I maintain my results at home?

All treatments achieve and maintain best results with proper at-home care and your North aesthetician will provide expert recommendations at your appointment.

Client Testimonial

““Just had the laser hair removal done on my underarm. I was expecting pain like it always is for me when I’ve had it done it at other places, but this was zero pain for me! It felt like water was squirted at my underarm! It may not be the exact same experience for everyone but for me it was such a great surprise. The equipment they use is the best!””
