When you first hear about Microneedling, it sounds like some ancient, secret skin rejuvenating techniques, used for centuries to smooth the skin.  Somewhat of a legend, like bathing in milk – intriguing, simple, and actually effective – only to lose its momentum in popularity through the ages as modern medicine brought us more sophisticated, complicated and expensive cosmetic procedures.

However, although Microneedling is a fantastic skin rejuvenator, it has really only been brewing into the current "miracle" skin treatment! Microneedling in Vancouver is one of the hottest and most effective office-based skin rejuvenation procedures in plastic surgery today. This non-destructive, naturopathic-like treatment actually harnesses the skin's very own power to naturally rejuvenate, smooth and tone up itself!

This procedure took off in popularity because it is so easy to do and offers such good results at minimal risk. Given that it worked in a very natural sort of way and that Microneedling is relatively inexpensive compared to other options only adds to its allure.

But there's more: Microneedling can be performed safely in almost all areas of the body besides the face (eg, back of hands, or baggy lower abdomen, inner thighs or the skin of the upper arm) and all types of skin (eg dark pigmented or very thin skin). This is not true for almost every other option. A consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon and a certified aesthetician is the most important first step and the best way of exploring what Microneedling could accomplish for any given individual.
