SKN Clinic is home to Vancouver’s micro skin needling experts

SKN was the first clinic in Vancouver to offer micro-needling over a decade ago, and one of the first clinics in Canada.  It was a natural fit for SKN Holistic Rejuvenation Clinic since it utilized no chemicals – purely just our natural wound healing and booster serums.  In 2022 we made the choice to upgrade to the Dermapen 4 because of its high quality mechanics and superior treatment results.

FINE LINES AND WRINKLES

As we age, the natural production of collagen and elastin diminishes, which leads to wrinkles and sagging skin. Wrinkling in the skin is also caused by habitual facial expressions, aging, sun damage, smoking, poor hydration, and various other factors. Micro needling promotes a process of new skin growth through the science of Collagen Induction Therapy. The most effective way to stimulate or “Induce” new skin safely and effectively is by micro-needling.

SKIN REJUVENATION

The Dermapen 4 Micro-needling treatments not only target specific imperfections but also provide an overall rejuvenation of the skin promoting healthier and more youthful looking skin. The needling process improves micro-circulation in conjunction with collagen and elastin formation beneath the skin to thicken the dermis, reducing wrinkles. You will notice improved skin texture, more even skin tone and an overall brightness to your skin. Undergoing a series of Micro-needling treatments will not only provide visible results to the entire appearance of your skin, but it will slow down the signs of ageing.

ACNE SCARS

The Dermapen 4 Micro needling can improve the appearance of atrophic acne scars and surgical scars. The micro needles work to naturally stimulate new collagen production in the area of the scar. An added bonus is that you are not only decreasing the appearance of scars, but are addressing and delaying the signs of aging simultaneously. The physical nature of skin needling breaks up fibrous and uneven scar tissue and stimulates the growth of new tissue which results in a smoother and more even skin surface. Also, there is the added benefit of new capillary growth which improves the blood supply to the area, providing a healthy foundation for the new skin.

MINIMIZE PORE SIZE

The Dermapen 4 Micro-needling treatments will result in a more refined appearance of the pores. There are two main culprits that contribute to the appearance of enlarged pores. The first culprit is congested skin. When your pores are congested this will increase their appearance. Secondly, pores will appear larger as our skin begins to age and the elasticity of our skin decreases. The Micro-Needling treatments stimulate collagen and elastin which results in firming of the skin thereby reducing the appearance of large pores.

ACNE

The Dermapen 4 Micro-needling treatment penetrates the deeper the deeper layers of the skin, triggering the body’s natural healing response. The skin is oxygenated and lymphatic drainage activated, regenerating the acne-affected area. The addition of the MG-CLR Solution elevates the results utilizing anti-microbial peptides and bio-compatible extracts to help clear problematic breakouts and enhance the visible complexion of skin troubled by acne and/or oily skin.

PIGMENTATION & MELASMA

The Dermapen 4 Micro-needling + MG-BL pigment lightening solution will target pigmentation from sun damage, and melasma resulting in a more even skin tone and brighter overall complexion.  

Thousands of tiny micro-channels are created in your skin using the Dermapen 4™ to promote a more balanced and normalized cellular function with regulated melanin production. As melanocytes (pigment producing cells) are directly targeted, a repair and corrective process encourages even skin tone for a smooth and radiant appearance.

What our Clients say

“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!”

– Jennie G.

“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.”

– Andrea S.
