What is Microneedling?

Microneedling in Calgary is fast becoming the most popular skin care treatment in town.  With only a short downtime, this amazing treatment is used to treat and improve many skin conditions. Microneedling is also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), skin needling or dermarolling.  Microneedling is a natural treatment that helps rejuvenate the skin without surgery as it works with your own body’s healing process as microneedles penetrate through the epidermis and stimulates a healing response.  A great alternative or compliment to botox, fillers and other cosmetic injectables if you are looking for a more natural and healthy alternative approach to skin care.  We also offer the most affordable microneedling in Calgary to make it easy for our clients to achieve beautiful skin.  We can also provide a receipt for coverage through your health benefit plan or direct bill your insurance as we include massage therapy into your treatment.

Microneedling can be used to treat things like scars, stretch marks and tighen loose skin!

EDermastamp Microneedling = the best!

We researched the best in Calgary for Microneedling machines and chose the best one we could find for our clients because we believe you deserve the best microneedling in Calgary.  EDermastamp was the first Health Canada approved machine in Canada and it is the best microneedling machine out there.  You can trust that when you come for your microneedling at Gelous Spa that we already did the research to bring you the very best treatment for you and your skin.

How Often Do I Need to Come?

For best results, it is recommended you do a minimum of 3 treatments, 6 weeks apart.  Any earlier than 6 weeks is pointless because it takes the body that time to heal.  Some conditions will require further treatments, but this is a good starting point.

What Does Microneedling Do?

Microneedling can improve lines and wrinkles on the face, neck and décolletage, to address ageing due to sun damage and for acne scar resolution. It can also be used to treat other areas with things like as stretch marks, improved skin texture, skin tightness and we have also seen it help with congested skin.

It is suitable for all skin types.

  • Avoid make-up for the first 12 hours after treatment, but you can apply make-up the next day
  • No exercising or strenuous activity for the first 24 hours after treatment. Sweating and gym environments are not advised.
  • Avoid sunlight for 24 hours after treatment (no tanning in the sun or in a tanning bed)

  • No pool swimming, sauna, hot tubs, or steam showers for 24-48 hours after treatment.
