Microneedling in Vancouver
TRUSTED SPECIALISTS AT PACIFIC PLASTIC SURGERY
Microneedling is an innovative treatment that uses tiny needles to quickly puncture the skin, creating small 2.0mm channels that are virtually invisible to the naked eye. These small channels stimulate extra collagen and elastin production, which are both essential components to the body’s healing process. As a much-desired side effect, when the collagen production is boosted your skin becomes smoother, softer, brighter and you will have a much more youthful radiance. It is safe on all skin types and tones making it a wonderfully versatile treatment for everyone!
What is special about the V2 Beauty booster?
The V2 Beauty Booster is a powerful combination of microneedling and the exclusive patented formula Redensity. It blankets the skin with essential nutrients to restore hydration and smooth fine lines for a fresh, youthful glow. With every treatment the V2 Beauty Booster will inject a total of 3ml of Platelet Rich Plasma or Redensity into the dermal layer of the skin via the small channels created by the microneedles, resulting in a wonderfully hydrated and glowing appearance. Compared to microneedling pens, this is a much greater volume of product delivered to the dermis, which is only 1ml when using pens.

What results can I expect?
The results you can expect are visibly lighter, smoother, and softer skin after a few treatments. The effects are subtle and natural looking. On average, you should experience minimal downtime. Some people rarely may have slight bruising and blotchiness post treatment, which will usually settle after a day. Downtime is reduced after each subsequent treatment of Redensity due to the dermis being repaired.
The recommended treatment protocol is as follows:
Three treatments of Redensity (3ml), with three to four weeks between treatments.
Before & After
The Injection DeviceThe V2 Beauty Booster Injection Device is a fast, reliable and effective method of injecting Redensity. With its 9-pin needle and vacuum suction, the product is delivered with an accurate depth and dosage across the entire face. The V2 can be used with different needle heads– the nine-point for the face and five-point for areas such as the hands. This increases the speed of the procedure and reduces the sensation relative to single needles. The V2 applies suction to the skin prior to every injection. This also helps to minimize discomfort and also reduces blood flow in the area, improving comfort and the accuracy of the depth delivery, ensuring a more uniform treatment. In addition to use on the face, the V2 can also be used on the neck with great success, which can sometimes be a difficult area to treat.
Redensity uses a patented formula specifically designed to hydrate and replenish the skin. This Hyaluronic acid is made up of natural antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins and minerals, Redensity naturally increases collagen production and improves skin elasticity. One molecule of Hyaluronic acid holds 1000 times its weight in water, therefore this treatment is very hydrating for the skin.
This treatment also helps to minimize the appearance of dull, crepey skin and gives your face a fabulous youthful glow. After one treatment using the V2 Beauty Booster you will start to see the skin plumping and filling, improved skin texture, hydration and fewer fine lines and wrinkles. This is a versatile treatment that can be used to achieve tighter, firmer skin on the face, lower eyelid, forehead, hands, décolletage and neck.
The science-y part
Redensity is a unique hyaluronic acid that hydrates and repairs the skin. Redensity can be injected into the papillary dermis across the entire face. Redensity is non cross-linked HA that includes a unique patented formula of effective natural components (amino acids, antioxidants, minerals and vitamins). This combination helps optimise DNA synthesis and stimulate collagen production. With pharmaceutical grade hypoallergenic properties, these ingredients have the ability to assist in dermal restructuring.
Redensity integrates into the papillary dermis, nourishing and treating the skin and allowing the fibroblasts to lay down new collagen and elastin. Unlike cross-linked fillers, Redensity will not leave tiny lumps of HA under the skin (which can take up to 12 months to disappear). The lightness of the gel, exerting low pressure in the tissue, also contributes to a low incidence of swelling.
