Microneedling, also referred to as collagen induction therapy, is a procedure that uses tiny, sterilized needles to create precise micro-punctures in the skin. These “micro-injuries” activate the skin’s natural healing process, leading to increased collagen and elastin production, essential proteins that maintain skin’s youthful appearance. Learn more here.
How It Works
The procedure triggers the skin to produce new collagen-rich tissue, resulting in more even skin tone and texture. Over time, this new skin tissue will make your skin look firmer, reducing the appearance of imperfections. More on the science behind it.
At Reimagine Clinic, microneedling costs vary depending on the area’s size and the specific requirements. Generally, prices range from $200 to $800 per session. Remember, while it’s an investment, the results are transformative and long-lasting. Insurance typically doesn’t cover cosmetic procedures like microneedling, but special cases might exist.
When you choose Reimagine Clinic for your microneedling treatment in Montreal, expect top-notch service. We start by applying a numbing cream to ensure a comfortable experience. Our specialists then use a state-of-the-art tool to make tiny pricks under the skin.

What to Expect
Post-treatment, it’s common to experience slight skin redness, similar to a mild sunburn, but this subsides quickly. We recommend avoiding direct sun exposure and using sunscreen to protect the treated area. Your skin begins rejuvenating immediately, and optimal results are visible after a series of sessions. Regular follow-ups will maintain the skin’s improved texture and appearance.
Some of the conditions that medical microneedling is known to improve include: mild to moderate acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, skin texture and pore size, and stretch marks.
Most people will notice redness and mild swelling similar to slight sunburn for 24-48 hours and there may be slight pinpoint bleeding and/or bruising. Skin will be noticeably smoother and more radiant within a week or two.
It begins with cleaning and numbing the skin using a collagen-stimulating product, hyaluronic acid. A small pen with 12 tiny needles is used to create tiny wounds in the skin. The speed and adjustability of the needles allows for more effective piercing and absorption of skin products. Hyalurnoic acid is used after the procedure to hydrate, heal and protect the skin as well.
Inflammation of the skin is very temporary and reduces greatly within a few hours. It may remain slightly pink for up to 48 hours after treatment. Using hyaluronic acid after the procedure can help reduce inflammation, and sunscreen can be used to protect the skin. Makeup use should be limited to mineral makeup.
- Patients tolerate the procedure easily. However, side effects such as dryness, scaling, redness, or swelling may last for a few days (or longer).
- It is recommended that patients protect their skin from the sun after the procedure.
- When the procedure is used to treat acne scars, it is recommended that the patient clean his/her face with a gentle cleanser every night. This should be repeated in the morning and products such as makeup should be limited but lotions can be used regularly.
- Postoperative wound infections are rare because micro wounds close quickly after the procedure is completed.
- Skin rejuvenation will be visible as soon as two weeks after the procedure.
- Results for burn scar treatments can take multiple sessions in order to be effective.
Medical microneedling is known to improve skin text texture, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, regenerate tissue, improve the appearance of scars, reduce the size of pores, and reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
Medical microneedling is safe to use on all skin types and colors without risk of post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation.
Prior to the treatment, numbing cream can be applied to minimize pain that is felt during the procedure.
Each patients skin condition determines the number of treatments that are needed. Moderate acne scars may need between three and four treatments, while thermal burns and stretch marks may need five? Conditions such as wrinkles caused by aging, one or two refresher treatments are recommended per year.
No negative side effects have been observed in the more than 150,000 microneedling procedures that have been done worldwide.
AHAs (glycolic Acid), retinol, acidic or active ingredients should not be used for two to three days after treatment to allow for maximum healing. Sun exposure is not recommended and sunscreen is encouraged.
Medical microneedling is safe on all skin types and colors because the epidermis is not damaged during treatment. The chance of change in pigmentation or post inflammatory hyper-pigmentation is minimal. Skin microneedling can be used on sensitive and fragile areas (eyes, neck, back of hands) that cannot be treated easily with other procedures.
Microneedling is not suitable for patients who have used Accutane (isotretinoin) within the last three months, have open wounds, cuts or abrasions, have had radiation skin treatment within the last year, are suffering from any skin infection, condition, or herpes simplex in the area of concern, are pregnant or breast feeding, have any history of keloid or hypertrophic scars or poor wound healing
