MICRONEEDLING | $349
Microneedling Services from Medically-Trained Skin Care Experts
Microneedling is an effective way to improve skin texture, reduce pore size, and heal scarring, fine wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation.
WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
Microneedling is a minimally-invasive, skin care treatment that minimizes skin concerns and improves its texture and appearance.
At Organic Glow Medical Aesthetics we use a painless, single-use needle device that creates controlled micro-channels in the skin. This process stimulates your body’s natural healing response to break down old collagen. It then stimulates an immediate increase of nutrients and growth factors to the site and the activation of collagen and elastin synthesis.
Add an additional treatment area such as the neck and decollete, hands, or other areas that have unwanted scarring or hyperpigmentation for only $50.
How many microneedling treatments will I need?
You may need between 1 to 6 SkinPen microneedling treatments to achieve your desired results. If you're trying to minimize your pores, you should only expect to need 1 treatment session. However, you may need up to 6 treatment sessions to erase moderate-to-severe wrinkles, folds, or scarring. We do offer discounted pricing when you buy packages of either 3 or 6 treatments.
Is microneedling safe?
Yes! SkinPen is the first FDA-approved microneedling device. Its patented and single-use sterile needle cartridge is built with safety in mind. It is surrounded by a custom designed bioSheath that acts as a barrier to prevent cross-contamination between procedures.
Is microneedling painful?
Microneedling is performed by a professional with a topical anesthetic to numb the skin. The depth of treatment is adjustable, so it is safe to use on the entire face, as well as the neck and even the hands. Most clients rate the discomfort as 2 out of 10.
How can I prepare for my microneedling appointment in Kelowna?
Avoid sun exposure/burns 24 hours prior to procedure.
Discontinue use of retinoids 48 hours prior to procedure.
If you have an active breakout, the area will be avoided.
Allow at least 24 hours after autoimmune therapies before microneedling.
Wait 6 months following isotretinoin (accutane) use.
If prone to cold sores, use medication as prescribed by your doctor prior to your treatment.
Discontinue Hydroquinone 48 hours before treatment.
What are the side effects and aftercare of microneedling?
After your treatment, you may feel like you have a sunburn for approx. 24-48 hours or more depending on your sensitivity.
You may experience mild burning, itchy, dry and tight skin. Within 48-72 hours, you may experience some peeling to your skin.
