Experienced Microneedling Treatment in Kelowna
Are you troubled with skin issues such as acne, scars, dullness, pigmentation, and sagginess? Do you wish to get a simple, convenient and non-surgical skin treatment? You may stop your search now, as our microneedling procedure in Kelowna is the cure for all skin issues. It is a skin treatment procedure in which an electric skin-needling device is used to damage old scar tissue and boost skin cell generation. As a result, new layers of elastin and collagen are created, leading to better blood circulation in the skin. Turn to Dr. C.D. Bakala MD, FRCSC Inc, for an effective and hassle-free skin treatment. We use a cosmopen, which is a fractional microneedling device with fine microneedles that help increase the remolding of the skin by creating thousands of microscopic channels through the skin to increase the formation of new tissue by activating the body’s wound healing cascade (hemostasis-inflammation-proliferation-tissue remodeling). Referred to as a non-ablative skin treatment, it helps treat the deeper parts of the skin without removing the top layer of the skin. Call us today to book a consultation for a microneedling procedure in Kelowna.
For an even better results we recommend a Secret RF combined microneedling and radio frequency treatment .
The Principle Behind Microneedling
COSMOPen microneedling is a form of Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT). The idea behind CIT is similar to that of many other non-surgical skin-tightening procedures in that it aims to create a controlled Non-Thermal injury underneath the skin’s surface, thereby inducing the body to respond through the formation of new tissue layers of elastin- and collagen fibers (neo- neo-collagenesis) as well as new capillaries for an improved blood supply (neo-angiogenesis) in the treated area. The skin plumps and thickens in response to this stimulus, ultimately reducing the appearance of scars, and fine lines and other skin texture changes.
The Cosmopen advantage over Dermarollers is that the Cosmopen microneedling system up and down movements prevents excessive trauma. This system has a disposable pinhead, so there is no risk of cross-infection. Furthermore, the small tip helps treat hard-to-reach areas with accurate and consistent speed and depth.

Frequently Asked Questions
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is an anti-aging procedure that utilizes a needle-covered device to create micro punctures, which cause the skin to produce new collagen. Have a look at the following FAQs to get some valuable information about microneedling:
How Does the Procedure Precisely Work?
The microneedling device is moved along the skin to create micro-wounds. The body responds by producing collagen and elastin. As a result, the skin becomes tighter, stronger and more radiant.
Is Microneedling Safe?
Yes! With advanced medical-grade devices, you can rely on our skin care specialists in Kelowna to gently create controlled tiny microchannels in your skin and improve its look.
