Microneedling with PRP or Exosomes Toronto
How it works
Microneedling AKA collagen-induction therapy is a painless procedure using the SkinPen device to create tiny punctures in the surface of the skin. This stimulates your body to produce it’s own natural collagen and elastin.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is using your body’s own growth factors in your blood to boost collagen and elastin production.

Microneedling with PRP or Exosomes frequently asked questions
SkinPen Microneedling is a type of facial treatment that involves the use of a device called a SkinPen to create tiny punctures in the top layers of the skin. These punctures, or “microinjuries,” stimulate the body’s natural healing process and can help to improve the appearance and health of the skin.
Microneedling can be used to address a wide range of skin concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, uneven skin tone, and sun damage. The treatment is generally considered safe for most skin types, but it is important to discuss any concerns or allergies with a skin care professional before starting the treatment.
During a SkinPen Microneedling treatment, a skin care professional will use the SkinPen device to create tiny punctures in the skin. The device has a set of fine needles that move back and forth to create the punctures, which are usually too small to be seen by the naked eye. The depth of the punctures can be adjusted to target specific skin concerns and skin layers.
After the treatment, the skin may be red and swollen, and the skin care professional will provide aftercare instructions to help ensure the best possible results. It is generally recommended to avoid sun exposure and certain skin care products for a few days after the treatment.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a type of blood product that contains a high concentration of platelets. Platelets are small, disc-shaped cells that are found in the blood and play a vital role in the body’s natural healing process. When an injury or damage occurs, platelets are activated and release substances called growth factors, which help to repair and regenerate damaged tissue.
During the procedure, a small amount of the person’s own blood is collected and processed to create PRP, which is then injected into the skin or applied topically. PRP enhances the effects of the microneedling treatment by providing growth factors that help to repair and regenerate damaged skin tissue.
Exosomes is the most recent biotech breakthrough in stem cell technology for producing more collagen and elastin for youthful skin. Exosomes are small, membrane-bound vesicles that are released by cells in the body to induce growth factors for skin and wound healing. Exosomes repair and regenerate damaged tissue which make it a perfect add-on to your microneedling treatments for optimal collagen and elastin stimulation.
Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that involves the use of a device with fine, short needles that create controlled micro-injuries to the skin. This stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, two proteins that play a key role in the skin’s structure and elasticity.
Microneedling with PRP and Exosomes has a number of potential benefits for the skin, including:
- Improving the appearance of acne scars: Microneedling smooths out the appearance of acne scars by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, which can help to plump up and smooth out the skin.
- Reducing fine lines and wrinkles: Microneedling reduces fine lines and wrinkles by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, which can help to plump up and smooth out the skin.
- Improving skin texture: Microneedling may help to improve the overall texture of the skin by smoothing out rough or uneven areas.
- Reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation: Microneedling helps to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation, which is the development of darker patches of skin, by stimulating the production of new skin cells.
- Enhancing the effectiveness of topical skincare products: Microneedling enhances the effectiveness of topical skincare products by increasing their absorption into the skin.
The cost of SkinPen microneedling at Lift Clinic Toronto is $450 per treatment, with add-on options for PRP and Exosomes to get the most out of your treatment.
SkinPen microneedling with PRP and Exosomes treats acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, sun damaged skin, melasma, acne scars, and stretch marks.
Exosomes are absorbed immediately into the skin post-microneedling treatment when applied topically. For optimal absorption, we recommend keeping exosomes on the skin for six hours after microneedling.
The number of microneedling treatments that a person may need can vary depending on their individual goals and the condition of their skin. Typically, we recommend 3-6 treatments since multiple treatments are required to achieve optimal results.
In general, it is common for people to undergo a series of microneedling treatments spaced one month apart. The exact number of treatments can vary, but we recommend starting with a series of three to six treatments of SkinPen microneedling in Toronto.
Microneedling is well tolerated and is generally not considered to be painful. The procedure involves using a device with fine needles to create tiny punctures in the skin. Some people may experience a mild stinging sensation during the treatment, but this is typically tolerable. At Lift Clinic Toronto, we use topical numbing cream prior to your treatment for your comfort.
If you are concerned about pain during the procedure, you can talk to your practitioner about additional ways to minimize discomfort.
The results of microneedling can vary depending on the individual and the specific condition being treated. Some people may see noticeable improvements after just one treatment, while others may need multiple treatments to achieve the desired results.
In general, you can expect to see some initial improvement in the appearance of your skin within a few days to a week after a microneedling treatment. However, more significant results may take several weeks or months to become apparent, as the skin continues to heal and regenerate.
To maintain the benefits of microneedling, it is usually recommended to have follow-up treatments at intervals of about 4-6 weeks. The number of treatments needed will depend on your individual skin concerns and goals, and can be discussed with your practitioner.
There may be some downtime associated with microneedling, as the skin may be red and slightly swollen after the treatment. This usually subsides within a few hours to a day or two, depending on the individual and the severity of the treatment.
It is important to follow your practitioner’s post-treatment instructions to help minimize any downtime and ensure proper healing. This may include avoiding certain skincare products, wearing sunscreen, and keeping the treated area clean and moisturized.
In some cases, microneedling may cause mild side effects such as dryness, flakiness, or mild acne breakouts. These effects are typically temporary and should resolve on their own within a few days to a week. If you experience any persistent or severe side effects after a microneedling treatment, you should contact your practitioner for guidance.
