What is Micro needling

In Toronto, micro needling with The Genuine Dermaroller® or eDS™ Skin Rejuvenation (also known as the eDermastamp®), is a minimally-invasive treatment to stimulate fresh collagen, revealing smooth, glowing skin. This all-natural approach is also known as skin-needling and is scientifically proven to generate collagen and increase the formation of new capillaries without unnecessary damage. You can undergo needling repeatedly in a series to ensure the maximum results with minimal impact on your schedule and your lifestyle.

What is CIT Microneedling?

Microneedling or Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is an effective non-surgical solution for the most common symptoms of aging. It is a unique process that was first used to treat scars, birthmarks, and hyperpigmentation over a hundred years ago. It triggers a natural healing response that boosts collagen and angiogenesis to even out skin’s texture, colour and tone. This minimally invasive procedure is useful for both face and body to firm, smooth and restructure the skin, while creating temporary channels to allow high-powered products to penetrate deeply. 

Modern CIT has come a long way from the first techniques that were developed, and you can anticipate dramatic results in our clinic with the gold standard in this procedure today. Verso surgery is certified to offer professional skin repair through micro needling in Toronto with the eDermastamp® and The Genuine Dermaroller®.

Collagen Induction Therapy refers specifically to targeted treatment where the needles poke through the top layer of skin (the epidermis) to the dermis where collagen is produced. The eDermastamp® needles can be adjusted to puncture the perfect depth in fractions of millimetres for best results.

The resulting tiny holes serve as micro-injuries, which trigger the body’s healing response. CIT stimulates increased blood flow to the area and increased collagen production as well. The channels created by micro-needling are too small to see but may appear as a pink dot on the skin in some cases. They will heal within 24 hours, but the body will generate an enhanced level of new collagen throughout the following weeks. The following results are smoother skin that appears younger, healthier and more resilient.

Who can benefit from Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) Microneedling?

Collagen induction can be suitable for any skin type. Ideal candidates wish to improve skin laxity, smooth out lines and wrinkles, slow the onset of the aging process, or minimize the appearance of scars.

This treatment is highly effective, particularly in a series for:

  • Tightening and toning skin
  • Smoothing wrinkles and fine lines
  • Treating scars or stretch marks
  • Improving skin texture
  • Thickening the dermis
  • Accelerating absorption of specially formulated serums and products

How does it work?

Microneedling causes growth factors to be released as part of the body’s inflammatory, healing response. Essentially, this procedure tricks the body into thinking the treated skin has been damaged by putting tiny punctures in the epidermis and dermis (the top and middle layers of the skin). Fibroblasts in the dermis are stimulated to produce new collagen and elastin in response to the perceived injuries. The puncture holes themselves will close in less than 24 hours, but the specialized cells in the treated area will continue to produce reparative proteins that improve the skin’s structure and elasticity for many weeks. Growth factors released via CIT produce collagen in a mesh-like formation, which means the “wound” is healed without scarring. To generate good quality collagen and elastin, your skin requires adequate nutrition, including sufficient vitamin A, vitamin C and vitamin E. These can be supplied topically and through diet. Your free consultation will include a thorough assessment of your current skin health to identify whether additional skin care or nutrition changes will benefit your Toronto micro needling results.

 Why CIT Microneedling with eDermastamp®?

  • The eDermaStamp® is ISO13485 certified (certified medical device), meeting all standards for medical-grade equipment in manufacturing, materials, sterile packaging and more. This treatment is licensed by Health Canada.
  • Optimal needle count ensures maximum results with safe and effective penetration of the epidermis and dermis. Microneedling tools with a higher needle count require more force to penetrate the skin and are less capable of atraumatic and precise punctures.
  • At 150 strokes per second, the eDermaStamp® has the fastest motor on the market and safely glides over the skin without scratching or tearing the skin. Microneedling pens that have a slower insertion rate can scratch and tear the dermis and epidermis, which not only damages the skin but increases the risk of infection.
  • The procedure is extremely safe. The Genuine Dermaroller® and eDermastamp® use non-traumatic perforations to gently trigger the generation of new tissue. This means you’ll see results without unwanted side-effects or downtime.

For depressed scar tissue, targeted treatment stimulates new fibroblast cells to be created, and these fill depressions with new layers of collagen. Hypertrophic scars can be degraded through micro needling, resulting in a smoother texture and less scar visibility. In all cases, while fibroblast cells increase collagen production, new capillaries will also be formed to supply the tissue with nutrients and oxygen, resulting in healthier skin and a transformed complexion colour, blending the scar into the surrounding skin tone.

Depending on the severity of the scar tissue, you may be advised to plan on more sessions for optimal results. You can also discuss the specific benefits for your skin if you invest in an at-home Dermaroller® tool.

Is there any downtime?

There is no downtime after Verso’s Toronto micro-needling treatment. You can expect some redness immediately after, but there is no restriction on your activity. Your skin appears flushed as a result of all the surface stimulation, but it subsides quickly as the healing begins, and you’ll soon see glowing, supple results.

There’s no risk of bleeding or bruising due to the fineness of the needles and the expertise of our staff in determining the correct depth for your treatment. You will not require a post-treatment plan as with other medical skin procedures because there is no trauma to your skin.

You’ll be advised to avoid sun exposure for the first 24 hours. This can be managed easily by wearing a hat outdoors and choosing to stay inside when possible for that brief period. It is also best to wait 24 hours before applying moisturizer, sunscreen or makeup after treatment. This will avoid irritation in the short period your dermis requires to heal and close the tiny holes that were created through the procedure.

How many CIT sessions are recommended?

You can expect dramatic improvement of skin texture and tone with 3 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart. It is best to space your appointments at least one month apart to avoid disrupting the collagen production cycle.

For patients with severe skin conditions or scar tissue, additional treatments may be required for ideal results.

Are there any risks?

Microneedling by a certified Dermaroller® treatment provider is exceptionally safe. Rare side-effects include infection, hyperpigmentation, and sensitivity of the treatment area.

Home Care

Our clinic provides the option to purchase a modified version of The Genuine Dermaroller® to maintain your results at home safely. This tool is a small roller covered in tiny, shallow needles that have been precision engineered for this specific purpose. You will gently run the Dermaroller® in different directions over the surface of your skin to provide additional stimulation for collagen production, and to enhance the absorption of topical serums as part of your regular beauty routine.

With regular use, you’ll be amazed by how vibrant and resilient your skin appears. You can use your at-home Dermaroller® two or three times a week to beautify your complexion just ten minutes at a time. It is best to do your treatment in the evening so that your skin can rest and heal while you sleep, and be sure to use sunscreen to protect treated skin.

What are the costs?

The cost of treatment for micro-needling in Toronto varies depending on the treatment area, the condition being treated, and the number of sessions you’ll require. CIT is often a much more economical solution than intense laser therapies with comparable results.
