Your Journey

In the quest for timeless beauty and radiant skin, individuals today are turning towards innovative and natural methods to rejuvenate their skin. One such groundbreaking technique is microneedling, which harnesses the body’s inherent healing process to promote healthier, younger-looking skin. Olakino Laser + Skin stands at the forefront of this revolution by offering SkinPen microneedling, a Health Canada and FDA-approved, medical-grade device. With the power of collagen and elastin induction, microneedling at Olakino Laser + Skin guarantees a rejuvenating experience like no other, all while minimizing downtime.

The Power of Microneedling

Microneedling has emerged as a game-changer in the field of skin rejuvenation. Unlike invasive procedures that rely on external substances or surgical interventions, microneedling leverages the body’s natural processes. This minimally invasive treatment creates micro-injuries in the skin, which triggers the body’s natural healing response. At Olakino Laser + Skin, this process is elevated to an art form with the use of SkinPen. This microneedling device ensures the highest level of safety, precision, and effectiveness in every session.

SkinPen: The Gold Standard in Microneedling

Olakino Laser + Skin takes pride in offering the gold standard of microneedling with the SkinPen. This cutting-edge device is not only approved by Health Canada but also holds the prestigious FDA certification, assuring clients of its safety and efficacy. The medical-grade technology behind SkinPen allows for controlled, precise + consistent treatment, ensuring optimal results for each unique skin type and concern.

The Beauty of Collagen + Elastin Induction

Central to the microneedling process is the stimulation of collagen and elastin production in the skin. Collagen, known as the “youth protein,” provides structure and firmness, while elastin ensures skin elasticity. As we age, our bodies produce less of these vital components, leading to the formation of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Microneedling at Olakino Laser + Skin effectively reverses this process, encouraging the skin to rebuild its structural support. The result? A smoother, tighter, and more youthful complexion!

Unmatched Skin Rejuvenation Experience

What sets Olakino Laser + Skin apart is the exceptional microneedling experience we offer. Clients can expect minimal discomfort during the procedure, thanks to the precision of the SkinPen device. Moreover, the downtime is short, allowing individuals to resume their daily activities without major interruptions. Over a series of treatments, the cumulative effects of microneedling become increasingly evident, giving clients a natural, refreshed appearance that builds over time.

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure which stimulates the body’s natural ability to repair itself and produce new collagen and elastin for healthier, younger-looking skin. The treatment improves skin texture, reduces the appearance of acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, and helps to tighten loose skin.

This procedure is a natural way for your body to build collagen and elastin fibres which give your skin strength and allow it to stretch and bounce back. Microneedling firms + tones skin on the face, neck, décolleté and keeps your skin vibrant.

The SkinPen device makes hundreds to thousands of “micro” skin punctures per second creating a series of microscopic channels in the dermis that stimulates the skin’s natural production of collagen and elastin, with smoother, firmer and younger-looking skin as a result.

  • Collagen Production: Microneedling stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, essential proteins that maintain skin’s elasticity and firmness. This leads to smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin.
  • Reduced Wrinkles + Fine Lines: Microneedling can diminish the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, particularly those caused by sun damage and aging.
  • Improved Skin Texture: It helps to refine skin texture, reducing the appearance of scars, large pores, and uneven skin tone.
  • Scar Reduction: Microneedling is effective in treating various types of scars, including acne scars, surgical scars, and stretch marks.
  • Enhanced Absorption of Topical Products: The microscopic channels created by microneedling allow for better penetration and absorption of skincare products, making them more effective.
  • Minimized Hyperpigmentation: Microneedling can help reduce hyperpigmentation and sunspots, leading to a more even skin tone.
  • Minimally Invasive: It’s a non-surgical and minimally invasive procedure, resulting in minimal downtime and a low risk of complications compared to more invasive treatments.
  • Versatility: Microneedling can be performed on various areas of the body, including the face, neck, chest, and hands.
  • Quick Recovery: Most people experience mild redness and swelling for a short period after the procedure, with minimal discomfort. Recovery time is generally short.
  • Long-Term Results: With a series of sessions, the benefits of microneedling can be long-lasting, and maintenance treatments can help sustain results.
  • Suitable for Most Skin Types: Microneedling is generally safe for a wide range of skin types and tones.
  • Natural-Looking Results: Microneedling produces gradual improvements, resulting in a natural-looking enhancement of your skin’s appearance.
  • FDA-Approved: SkinPen, in particular, is FDA-approved and has undergone rigorous testing to ensure its safety and effectiveness.

Results can vary from person to person, and the best approach for your skin should be discussed with one of our Medical Aestheticians. Additionally, proper aftercare and sun protection are essential to maximize the benefits and minimize potential side effects of microneedling treatments.

  • Acne scars
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
    Large pores
  • Age or “sun” spots
  • Pigment issues
  • Reduced skin elasticity
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Surgical scars in different areas of the body

Most people will see improvements after 3 treatments with SkinPen, spaced about 4-6 weeks apart for optimal results. Some people will notice healthier-looking skin after only 1 treatment. Collagen remodelling happens over time: the natural repair process of your skin continues through the course of several weeks after treatment. You may not see the final results for up to 6 months following your last microneedling session.

We recommend a course of 3 treatments spaced around 4 weeks apart. Think of your skin as a canvas, and each microneedling treatment as a brushstroke in your masterpiece of rejuvenation. Just like an artist builds depth and texture layer by layer, the number of treatments you need depends on your unique canvas. Our skilled professionals at Olakino Laser + Skin will work closely with you to create the perfect plan, ensuring your skin becomes a work of art you’ll love.

Picture it: You’re about to embark on a journey to unveil your skin’s hidden potential. As you settle into our cozy treatment room at Olakino, you’ll first feel a gentle cleansing breeze, washing away the day’s worries.

Some may describe it as a gentle prickling sensation, but fear not – our experienced Medical Aestheticians will be here to help guide you on your journey.

As the session concludes, your skin will be kissed with a soothing mask, as if wrapping it in a cozy blanket.

Microneedling typically lasts about 30-60 minutes depending on the area being treated.

SkinPen should not be used on individuals who have active skin cancer in the treatment area, open wounds, sores, or irritated skin in the treatment area, allergies to stainless steel or anesthetics, hemorrhagic or hemostatic disorders, are pregnant or nursing, or are currently taking drugs containing isotretinoin (such as Accutane).

SkinPen is safe and effective to use on many parts of the body, including the face, neck, and décolleté.

  1. Discontinue the use of topical retinoids (Retinol, Retin A) Vitamin A creams and other topical medications for about 1 week before your microneedling appointment.
  2. Wear sunscreen of at least SPF 30 every day prior to your treatment.
  3. Avoid excessive sun exposure or sunburns.
  4. Postpone your treatment if you have active breakouts or open lesions in the treatment areas.

It’s a minimally invasive procedure with little downtime, especially compared to other procedures. Recovery time is individual and will depend on your unique skin. Most patients will experience a light pinkness or redness in the targeted areas, similar to a mild or moderate sunburn for 1-3 days following the procedure. Approximately 2-3 days post-treatment, you may experience dry or flaking skin in the targeted area, which should resolve quickly. You will start to see an improvement in your skin’s appearance after about a week following treatment.

  • For the first 24 hours use the Lift HG (white tube). After 24 hours use the rescue gel (blue tube). These are provided to you in your microneedling kit.
  • For the first 24-48 hours, be sure to use freshly cleaned towels, sheets, pillow cases, and clothes. Wash hands before touching face and avoid wearing makeup.
  • For the first 72 hours, avoid any sweaty exercise, hot tubs/sauna, pools, sun exposure.
  • Increased bruising can take place if you are taking blood thinning medication.
  • No other aesthetic treatments in between consecutive microneedling sessions.
  • You might experience dryness, rough skin, tightness, redness, itching or peeling. Those conditions resolved over time without any further complications

My wife got me a hydrafacial for my 40th birthday. I didn’t know what to expect since this was my first time doing any sort of skin care services. Let me tell you, my skin has never felt so good! Now I’m so young looking everyone calls me Benjamin Button 😂. Highly recommend if you’re looking for excellent skin care in Victoria.

I had a great hydrofacial at this clinic! I hadn’t had any skin treatments in years and my face was very much in need of some care and exfoliating. The office itself is quiet, clean, and cozy and the staff were kind and knowledgeable. The whole service was gentle, professional, and thorough. Highly recommend doing the lymphatic drainage as well with that service. Was a great reset for my skin.

I have been a client here since 2021. I have done electrolysis with Ana (she's amazing), laser hair removal and today I tried the laser facial with Felipee and am very happy with that as well. All the staff are so friendly and I wouldn't go anywhere else. I highly recommend Olakino to anyone.

I had laser hair reduction on my lip and chin with Olakino and it was a great experience. They use an excellent laser with no need for topical numbing cream. The laser has a cool air jet which helps to soothe the skin. They offer packages but also pay as you go if you aren’t sure how many sessions you will require. Highly recommend.

Amazing! Had laser on my face a decade ago and it came back so I booked with Félipée for laser. The laser they use is SO good. It has a fan that blows air while its zapping so it’s constantly cooling the skin. She’s so chill and professional, and after literally ONE session i dont need to shave anymore. Will be continuing obvs so it doesn’t come back, but HIGHLY recommend Olakino.
