Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, stimulates the body’s own collagen and elastin production, rejuvenating the skin and minimizing acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles.

Microneedling is the most natural way to rejuvenate your skin with your body’s own healing process.

Microneedling is used to treat and minimize:

  • Acne and surgical scars
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Large pores
  • Age or “sun” spots
  • Pigment issues

Our Technology – SkinPen® Microneedling

Microneedling is the most natural way to rejuvenate your skin with your body’s own healing process. Olakino Laser + Skin uses SkinPen®, a Health Canada and FDA-approved, medical-grade, state-of-the-art microneedling device available only through medical professionals. With the triggered induction of collagen and elastin, SkinPen® Microneedling is an innovative treatment that offers an unmatched skin rejuvenation experience with a short recovery time.


Microneedling 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.

Microneedling 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. SkinPen® Microneedling firms up and tones skin on the face, neck and décolleté and keeps your skin vibrant.

SkinPen® is an automated, non-surgical and FDA-approved microneedling device. SkinPen® is clinically proven to be effective and has won awards, including the “Top Rated Treatment for Acne Scars” and “Top Skin Care Device” in the Aesthetic Everything® 2019 Aesthetic and Cosmetic Medicine Awards.

The SkinPen® microneedling 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.

microneedling SkinPen treatment before and after
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 one 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 three treatments spaced around 4 weeks apart.

The treatments feel comfortable. Patients generally report feeling a slight vibration of the SkinPen®. A topical anesthetic will be applied to the targeted area as part of the treatment.
Microneedling typically lasts about 30-45 minutes depending on the area being treated.
SkinPen® should not be used on people who have active skin cancer in the treatment area; have open wounds, sores, or irritated skin in the treatment area; have an allergy to stainless steel or anesthetics; have a hemorrhagic or hemostatic disorder; are pregnant or nursing; or those who are currently taking drugs with the ingredient isotretinoin (such as Accutane).
SkinPen® is safe and effective to use on many parts of the body, including the face, neck and décolletage.
To prepare for your SkinPen® Microneedling treatment, we ask that you discontinue the use of topical retinoids (Retinol, Retin A) Vitamin A creams and other topical medications for about 1 week before your microneedling appointment. We also ask that you wear sunscreen of at least SPF 30 every day prior to your treatment and avoid excessive sun exposure or sunburns. Postpone your treatment if you have active breakouts or open lesions in the treatment areas.
SkinPen® Microneedling is 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 2-4 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.

We will address all your questions around aftercare and will recommend products that will help your skin heal fast. The treated skin may have the appearance of a mild to moderate sunburn. Use Rescue Calming Complex (supplied) which can be applied for the next 24 hours. Do not use any other skincare products or makeup (cleansers, moisturizers, or sunscreens). Twenty-four hours after the procedure you can continue using Rescue Calming Complex and begin applying Lift HA Serum (also supplied). Avoid exercise for 3 days following the procedure (including on procedure day). Bruising is rare; however, do not plan an important event within 2 weeks of treatment. Avoid unprotected sun exposure for 2 weeks after treatment. Use sunscreen with zinc oxide and a hat/shade to protect treated areas.
