Find out if Microneedling is Right for You
Restore your skin’s radiant, youthful glow with professional microneedling treatments. In addition, target and treat signs of aging including:
- Lines and Wrinkles
- Sun Damage
- Age Spots
- Loss of Firmness or Smoothness
We use InnoPen, which is a medical precision tool with a unique, dual spring-loaded disposable needle cartridge (InnoTip). Additionally it uses an automated, vibrating stamp-like motion to cause micro injury to the skin. The gentle stimulation of fibroblast promotes natural induction of collagen and elastin without the stress of pain and lengthy down time associated with ablative treatments. Micro-channels, resulting from the needles piercing through the skin layers, will aid in infusing therapeutic serums for greater penetration and enhancement of overall efficacy.
InnoPen treatments work with Epionce skincare solutions. For best results, we recommend scheduling 3-8 sessions (depending on the severity of the issues being treated) spaced roughly 4-6 weeks apart.

What is Microneedling with PRP?
Microneedling is a treatment that involves the use of tiny needles that produce micro-injuries to the skin. These micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural collagen production – that substance that provides flexibility and strength to skin and body tissue. To speed the healing process, microneedling is further enhanced by injecting PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) into the treated tissue. The PRP is obtained from drawing a small amount of your own blood, from which the plasma is separated to concentrate healing properties. Microneedling with PRP can be used in several different areas of the body, including the face, neck, arms, décolleté, arms, abdomen, back, hands and legs.

Does Microneedling Hurt?
The idea of tiny needles piercing your skin may sound painful, but after our numbing cream is applied will take away any worries of that during the procedure. Afterwards; you can expect some pink or redness that feels kind of like a sunburn. If there are any other issues they will clear up in a few days, and you can always contact us for any questions or concerns.
Does Microneedling work on Darker Skin?
Yes, microneedling is safe for darker skin tones when you go to someone who has experience. Make sure to ask if they have done microneedling on dark skin before.
What to Expect of Microneedling with PRP
Before your treatment begins, a numbing gel is applied to the area so the process is comfortable. The appropriate depth for the microneedling will then be selected, based on your skin type and condition. Our clients report that the treatment is not uncomfortable, with a sensation like a light sandpaper moving across your skin.
After your treatment, you will notice immediate results, which will continue to improve over the next few days and weeks. As your body’s natural collagen production is now stimulated, you should see the texture and quality of your skin continue to improve for up to six months. Recovery time is about one to three days depending on how aggressive the treatment.
Can you do Microneedling on your Body?
Yep! Microneedling isn't exclusive to just the face, we have done it on various areas with success. While it's the area of skin that is most often treated, the procedure can be done anywhere the skin on the body needs a collagen boost, particularly those that have stretch marks, like the legs, chest, or butt.
Is Microneedling a safe Alternative to Fibroblast?
Health Canada has advised the public, spas, and aestheticians to stop using plasma pens/fibroblast devices. We believe Microneedling is the best and safest alternative to anyone thinking of getting Fibroblasting done. The FDA has legally authorized microneedling devices to improve the appearance of facial acne scars, facial wrinkles, and abdominal scars.
Can LED Light Therapy help with Microneedling?
Great question! Yes it does instantly. We suggest doing LED Light Therapy immediately after your microneedling for around 30 minutes. Just ask for the Celluma (our award winning LED Light Therapy device). It can clear up redness and swelling in the face caused by the microneedling treatment (as seen in the photos).

Frequently Asked Questions about Microneedling:
Why are collagen and elastin important?
Collagen is the most abundant protein in our connective tissues. It makes up 70% of them and is responsible for determining our skin’s texture and shape. Elastin, the second most predominant protein, gives our skin its flexibility. To create new and healthy collagen and elastin, your skin needs to have sufficient amounts of both vitamin A and vitamin C.
How long do Microneedling treatments take?
Sessions typically last between 20 and 30 minutes, though the duration ultimately depends on the patient’s desired outcomes and the condition of treatment areas.
Will I require pain relief?
This depends on factors including the area being treated and the thickness of your skin, though Find A Better You commonly applies a topical numbing agent to ensure your comfort throughout each treatment session.
When can I return to work and begin normal activities?
We recommend avoiding strenuous activities, not sleeping on the injection site, and resting with your head elevated immediately after the procedure. Overall, your microneedling treatments will not require much downtime. At most you might experience a small amount of discomfort and a few tiny spots at the injection point, but these inconveniences usually disappear quickly. We encourage you to return to work and daily activities once symptoms subside.
