MICRONEEDLING & SKIN CARE FAQ

What is Mircroneedling?

Microneedling is an innovative way to treat many skin issues, including: fine lines and wrinkles; stretch marks; large pores; hyper- and hypo-pigmentation; age spots; dark under-eye circles; scars from acne, surgery, burns, tattoos (body, face, scalp), or other traumas.

How does it work?

Microneedling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT) gently induces controlled micro-injuries to the skin, which triggers the skin’s natural repair process, resulting in production of collagen and elastin.

What device do you use at Vita Felice?

Vita Felice proudly uses the Eclipse MicroPen because it offers a very safe and effective way to improved skin quality without the use of lasers or heat. This top-tier device is one of the very few products of its kind approved by Health Canada.

What areas of the body can microneedling be performed on?

We can use the Eclipse MicroPen to treat all parts of your body including scalp, not just your face and neck. We can restore youthful beauty to your décolleté, hands, arms, legs, back, abdomen, and scalp.

What can I expect during my session?

We use a sterile single-use applicator attached to the Eclipse MicroPen. After numbing your skin, a technician applies a thin layer of microneedling stem cell solution, hyaluronic acid (HA) serum or saline solution to your skin and selects a personalized pen setting to match the specific needs of your skin and condition. The pen glides across your skin in a gentle motion to treat the area of your choosing.

Does it hurt?

Since we use a numbing agent, you shouldn’t feel pain. However, pain tolerance varies from one individual to another. You may still experience some discomfort; some people describe it as a lightly abrasive feeling like that of sandpaper, while others feel nothing. The layer of HA serum or saline solution helps the Eclipse MicroPen glide smoothly and makes the treatment efficient and less irritating.

How long does it take?

Depending on the size of the area you’re having treated, it can take as little as 15 minutes and up to 30 minutes after numbing. Numbing can take up to 30 minutes.

Is there any downtime?

Right after the treatment, your skin will be bright red, but it will go away fairly quickly. The redness usually lasts 1-3 days. Some clients heal completely within 24 hours. Other than redness, you might experience swelling and flakiness before getting smooth and soft skin. You can speed things along by using the skincare products recommended by your technician.
We recommend for our clients to go home and relax after the procedure, and avoid sweating for 3 days.

Can I wear makeup after the service?

Please avoid make-up for the 24 hours post procedure. After that, you can wear make-up but we recommend mineral based products and use of clean applicators.

When will the results be visible?

Once the redness fades, you’ll see a difference as the skin begins to adopt a glow. Visible
changes to the skin develop over the course of several weeks. Skin can continue to improve up to 12 months after the treatment.

How many treatments do I need?

It truly depends on your skin’s condition and treatment needs. Some people will only need one treatment, but for most, 3-6 treatments with 4-6 week breaks in between each, provides the best results. For clients with more significant skin-care concerns, such as burn scars, it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions. In many cases, we recommend other services to combine for the best results. After the consultation, we will create your custom plans.

Is there anything I need to prepare?

Please come to the service without make-up. For body treatment, please wear something loose and clean. For facial treatments, please change your pillowcase before going to bed.

Is consultation necessary?

Yes, microneedling is advanced skin care treatment even though less invasive when compared to a few other advanced treatments in the market. In order to achieve the best results, we require consultation before booking microneedling session. This ensures that your skin is prepared to take this service.
