Microneedling Pigment Correction

Many people, both men and women, have hyper-pigmentation which looks like patches of old “suntan” on their faces and necks.  This is very common but, thankfully, easily treated nowadays thanks to advanced treatments in microneedling. Pigment correction involves a combined in-clinic & at-home treatment plan consisting of 7 in-clinic treatments (3-4 weeks apart) along with at-home daily application of skin brightening lotion.
The Dermaroller® TWIST for pigment correction is licenced by Health Canada. There are many imitation products out there not licenced by Health Canada, so it is highly recommended you do your research to protect your health and safety.

Pigment Correction Microneedling FAQ
How many treatments do I need? You will need 7 consecutive treatments for optimal results.
How much does pigment correction cost? When you spread the cost of pigment correction over the number of treatments required, it costs about the same as our Boost microneedling treatments using the ReadyMedical topical healing solutions, only you get the added benefit of even skin tone.
When will I start to see results? For many people, noticeable improvement in their skin tone can be seen during the course of the treatments. Results are individual and can vary between clients. In the future as you age, you may seek out additional follow-up treatments.
How can I maintain my results? To maintain results, you will be provided with a bottle of Bright Skin Lotion to apply at home. The Bright Skin Lotion protects your treated skin and nourishes it during healing. To maximise the efficiency of the Bright Skin Lotion, it is recommended to gently needle the treated area with the Dermaroller® Home Care Roller twice per week before application of the Bright Skin Lotion.
