Micro-needling is a very safe and effective alternative to injectables and invasive lasers. The results are long term and the recovery time is minimal. This cost effective, non-invasive, non-injectable skin rejuvenation treatment targets a diverse range of skin concerns. The Eclipse micro needling device that uses microscopic needles between 0.25mm and 2mm.
Micro Needling is derived from ancient acupuncture and mesotherapy. During the treatment, the pen is gently glided over the skin while tiny punctures are created within the epidermis and dermis that encourage the skin’s own natural healing response, leading to the production of collagen and elastin.
SKN Clinic is home to Vancouver’s micro skin needling experts
SKN was one of the first clinics in Canada and perhaps the first in Vancouver to introduce this incredible skin rejuvenation technique over 9 years ago. It was a natural fit for SKN Holistic Rejuvenation Clinic since it utilized no chemicals purely just our natural wound healing. In 2018 we made the choice to upgrade the Eclipse Micro-Needling Pen due to its high quality mechanics, and most importantly its superior treatment results.

Calecim is a highly advanced skin care and biotech company with a conscience. No animals or humans are hurt in the extraction of the stem cells and of course the products are not tested on animals.
Calecim is a result of a parent organization Cell Research Corp (CRC), a biotech company known internationally for its intensive research into therapies using umbilical cord lining stem cells with an expertise in wound healing. CellResearch Corp is the only company in the world with multiple patents for stem cell technology derived from the umbilical cord lining.
This stem cell source produces billions of stem cells which secrete proteins responsible for cell regeneration and repair. Nutrients, collagen, peptides, growth factors, cytokines and other proteins are secreted by umbilical cord lining stem into cell culture media which is collected to produce CALECIM®.
CALECIM® works miracles through this ‘youth-giving broth’ without the use of the cells themselves. The essence of the skin repair technology lies in the powerful growth factors and cytokines produced by stem cells.

“My technician made me feel very comfortable with my first service of microneedling. I was bit nervous initially but she helped put my nerves at ease and did a fantastic job! It was actually not as bad as I thought it was going to be. I’m really looking forward to seeing results from these treatments!”

“I have always had the most AMAZING experience at SKN. I was recommended to go to SKN by a friend and have since referred many people to them.
I have a facial scar that Amanda treated with acupuncture and Dermapen, the results have been excellent. I’ve also had a medi-facial with Melissa, also an excellent result. I am intending to go back for hair removal with BBL, which comes highly recommended.”
