Microneedling in Montreal Treatment Areas
Microneedling in Montreal can improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and other types of skin damage. The procedure is safe for all skin types. Microneedling stimulates collagen production, leading to firmer, more youthful-looking skin. Collagen is a protein that is essential in keeping skin looking smooth and plump.
What can be treated with microneedling?
Microneedling is a standard treatment to minimize wrinkles on the face. Since our collagen and elastin productivity naturally decreases with age, we may see fine lines and wrinkles appearing on different parts of the face. (Other factors can also cause wrinkles, such as smoking, diet and sun exposure.) When microneedling is performed on the face, collagen and elastin rush to the site of each tiny puncture, helping to repair and heal the skin texture.
The result? Smoother, younger-looking skin without the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Reach out to our professional team at CHIC Laser for medically-led microneedling in Montreal.
Whether old or new, acne scars and stretch marks can be frustrating reminders of a painful skin condition! If you book an appointment in Montreal for microneedling, the needles pass through the epidermis and reach the dermal layer of skin, allowing the regeneration of healthy, new skin from the inside out. You will soon have a healthy, natural glow! Not only can this treatment help smooth out the skin's surface, but it can also drastically reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks.
Acne scars are common problems that many people struggle with. Using acne treatment in Montreal can tremendously improve your confidence, helping you to achieve a smoother complexion. And the treatment is entirely FDA-approved!
Microneedling and lasers are the best tools to help stimulate skin regeneration. Sometimes, you can see results after just one session with minimal downtime or side effects. And it’s affordable – so you don’t have to break the bank for beautiful skin!
Hair loss can be an aggravating source of embarrassment for some folks. If you notice your hair starting to thin or fall out, a microneedling treatment plan might be what you're looking for! Microneedling, as a treatment for thinning hair, stimulates hair growth by reaching the dermis—the layer of skin under the surface—and activating hair growth.
Reversing sun damage isn't always easy—once your skin has been damaged by sun exposure, it can feel impossible to fix it! Fortunately, the team at CHIC Laser has a solution for you that won't break the bank—microneedling! A Montreal microneedling treatment can be highly effective in reducing the appearance of sunspots by stimulating new tissue to grow, therefore lightening sunspots and creating a more even skin tone.
Ever look in the mirror and notice your pores looking more significant than they used to? This can be caused by sun exposure, genetics, age and daily habits. Once pores look enlarged, getting your skin to look smooth and supple once more can be tricky. But—you guessed it—microneedling can work for that too! By gently jabbing the skin with microscopic needles, the CHIC Laser dermatology team can help reduce the appearance of pore size by stimulating collagen and elastin production, therefore smoothing out the skin's surface and making pores look remarkably smaller in your Montreal microneedling appointment.
Skin elasticity can decrease when you reach a certain age - a common issue. Anyone over age 30 has probably seen a bit of saggy skin here or there, and maybe you've wondered if there's any way to reverse it. Microneedling can be an effective alternative to costly cosmetic surgery--it won't cost an arm and a leg. It can show similar results without the need for invasive lasers or surgery. Skin elasticity is primarily controlled by collagen and elastin, the two naturally occurring substances that make our skin look bouncy and young. Though it's a normal part of aging, many folks prefer to keep their skin looking fresh and young; stimulating collagen and elastin production is the best way to keep wrinkles at bay and to give skin that youthful, springy quality.
Uneven skin tone is one of the biggest complaints that dermatologists can address. Uneven skin tone can be treated with microneedling for scar treatment in Montreal. Many factors can affect skin quality--sun damage, age, and daily habits are significant determinants. By activating the body's healing properties and collagen production, a microneedling treatment plan can give skin a drastic makeover and even skin tones of all types.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are Microneedling Results Permanent?
Though it is a very effective treatment, microneedling results aren't permanent. After your course of treatments (usually 3-6 sessions), you should come back for touch-ups now and then. Some people prefer to keep seeing their dermatologist regularly for these treatments; others just come once yearly for refresher treatments.
Can Microneedling Cause Scarring?
Microneedling is a popular and effective scar treatment in Montreal, but there are a few warnings to look out for. If you have keloid scars--large, bubble-like scars that result from an overgrowth of scar tissue--you might not be a great candidate for microneedling. As always, the team of pros at CHIC Laser can assist you in figuring out if this procedure is correct for you!
How Many Sessions Do I Need?
A.Typically, 3-6 sessions are the sweet spot for microneedling treatment. Most clients report seeing visible results after their third session, though some notice a difference after one treatment! Depending on your age and personal skin factors, the time it takes will differ. We recommend seeing how you feel after your first treatment course and working with our experts to develop a continuing treatment plan from there.
What Is the Process of Microneedling Like?
At the start of your appointment, a certified professional will apply a topical numbing cream to the treatment area. This will reduce any discomfort caused by the tiny needles. Once you're numbed, your CHIC Laser pro will glide a pen-like device over your skin. Working in lines over the treatment area, the "pen" dispenses minor pinpricks from microscopic needles as it passes over the skin. You won't feel the collagen production, but you'll know it's working when you see the results after a few sessions!
What Do I Do Before My Treatment?
There are a few essential guidelines to follow before your microneedling appointment:
- Avoid taking blood thinning medication during the week leading up to your session.
- Your doctor will ask you about any medication you're taking: you may need to stop this before your session, too.
- Avoid using products that increase skin sensitivity, such as retinoids or exfoliants. The CHIC Laser team can also give you the full rundown on this.
- Arrive at the clinic with a clean, make-up and product-free face. If you're having treatment on another body area, do not apply creams, lotions or other products on the day of your appointment.
What Happens After Microneedling?
When you get microneedling for scar treatment in Montreal, your skin will be red. But it shouldn't last more than a few hours, and you can resume your regular schedule after this minor procedure has wrapped up; limit sweating or heavy makeup while healing will help keep any swelling from occurring during downtime! Microneedling is a treatment that uses tiny wounds to start your body’s healing process. The goal of this microrupturing is stimulating collagen and elastin to patch up small injuries, healing them quicker than before! Depending on how deep they go through the skin, it could take days or weeks, but once done with all steps, there will no longer be any wrinkles because new cells have replaced them, leaving you with new, better skin.
What Are the Side Effects of Microneedling?
When you use microneedling for scar treatment in Montreal, the needles can cause mild swelling and sensitivity to the treated area. Since there are technically hundreds of tiny punctures to your skin, some bleeding or redness in the area is perfectly normal. The treated skin may be sensitive for a few days, but this should resolve itself naturally--recovery time usually is less than a week. If you experience minor pain, you can take an over-the-counter pain reliever, such as Tylenol. If you experience significant bleeding, bruising or other serious symptoms, contact CHIC Laser's doctors immediately.
Is Microneedling Effective on Dark Skin?
Yes, microneedling is safe and effective on all skin types. You can use the treatment after pregnancy, too. You can use microneedling for stretch marks to help you restore your pre-pregnancy stomach over time, reducing the signs of stretching. Because the needles pierce the skin at the epidermal layer but do not puncture deeper than the dermis, scarring is unlikely. You must trust your microneedling professional, though, as mistakes or overly aggressive wand-wielders can cause damage to the skin! At CHIC, we believe less is more--you won't have to worry about our experts being too heavy-handed with the microneedling pen!
How Does the Microneedling Pen Work?
The microneedling pen is a small device that utilizes tiny needles to create small punctures on your complexion so it can remodel itself! Think about all those injuries as just one big injury for each cell underneath our unique technology—which then allows them to heal and produces a rejuvenated look back into shape once more. This is why you can use microneedling for stretch marks, scars, and blemishes on the skin.
Is It a Safe Procedure?
Absolutely, but with all aesthetic treatments, there are minor risks involved. The certified professionals at CHIC Laser can give you the entire run-down of risks. Still, the most critical factors are telling your practitioner about any medications you're taking, previous allergies or reactions to specific products, and ensuring that you follow all pre- and post-care suggestions from the doc. Choosing a reputable clinic is also paramount, as you need to trust the sanitary measures at your chosen location. Since the microscopic needles puncture the skin, you may notice slight bleeding or bruising of the treated area. This is perfectly normal, but keeping the area clean after your treatment is essential to prevent infection or any complications. If you take the proper precautions, microneedling is entirely safe for most healthy adults.
Is Skin Microneedling Painful?
When combined with a topical numbing cream and performed by a certified healthcare professional, the procedure can be slightly uncomfortable, though minimally painful. If you use microneedling for stretch marks in susceptible areas, like the stomach, you might experience more discomfort than others. If your doc (like the experts at CHIC Laser) knows what they're doing, you might not even feel the needles.
What About After the Treatment?
After the treatment, your healthcare provider will likely apply a serum--most likely hyaluronic acid serum-- to the treated area. Because the microneedling service has opened up many microscopic wounds, it can absorb products much faster and more effectively. This is the perfect time for the doc to slather on some extra goodness to sink into your skin and activate healing from the inside out! Once you leave the clinic, follow these essential steps to make sure your procedure settles in properly:
- Avoid anti-inflammatory medications: you want the inflammation this time--that's your body's natural healing response!
- Avoid using ice to combat swelling--again, this is a natural response and is an essential part of the rejuvenation process.
- Stay out of direct sun for at least 2 weeks after your session. After 24 hours, a sunscreen with SPF 30+ is highly recommended, but it's still best to avoid sun exposure.
- Try to let your skin breathe as much as possible. Wait a minimum of 24 hours before applying makeup, engaging in strenuous exercise, or sweating excessively.
Will Microneedling Help with Hyperpigmentation?
Hyperpigmentation is a condition that causes dark spots or pigmented patches of skin. The cause for hyperpigmentation may be diverse, including sun exposure, but one thing they have in common? You can improve them with microneedling! The beauty procedure involves breaking up the pigment or the dark spots below your surface layer with little suffered wounds and scabs formed as well — which will at least make those areas lighter than others around it thanks to its effectiveness on melanin-producing genes within these cells. Regardless of skin type, microneedling is a safe treatment for hyperpigmentation.
Will Microneedling Tighten Skin?
Youthful skin is primarily preserved by collagen and elastin production. This innovative tool can stimulate the targeted area for skin tightening enough to send collagen into it, helping tighten the skin! With these technological advancements comes increased safety with better results than ever before. Microneedling stretch marks, scars, and wrinkles will also help you to tighten the skin.
What Is the Cost of Microneedling?
The cost of microneedling varies depending on the clinic and the technology being used. You may require more than one treatment when microneedling stretch marks and scars, as the appearance of these blemishes will only diminish over time. The price range for microneedling alone is between $300 and $500 per area. At CHIC Laser Centre in downtown Montreal, we offer a package price for multiple treatment plans in addition to the regular price per session.
