04 Dec Why Health Canada Approved Microneedling Devices are Vital to Quality Results
The Vital Role of Health Canada Approval To Get the Results You Pay For
We’d like to explain the significance of selecting a practitioner who uses Health Canada approved microneedling devices as well as address a lesser-known concern – the quality gap between different microneedling devices, including stamping devices and devices that don’t even puncture the skin.
In the ever-evolving world of aesthetics and skincare, microneedling has emerged as a powerful tool to rejuvenate and revitalize your skin. However, with its growing popularity, there’s a stark contrast between practitioners who prioritize safety and quality and those who prioritize cutting corners for profit.
Understanding Health Canada Approval
Health Canada, the country’s federal health department, plays a critical role in ensuring the safety and effectiveness of medical devices. When a device receives Health Canada approval, it signifies that the device has met rigorous standards for safety, quality, and performance. For clients seeking professional, results-oriented microneedling treatments, this approval should be seen as a beacon of trust and reliability.
You can search for your practitioner’s device on the Health Canada Medical Devices Active License Listing (MDALL).
Why Health Canada Approval Is Non-Negotiable
The use of a Health Canada Approved device during microneedling is pivotal to safely achieving the desired results. Equally important to safety and results, however, is the consideration of your investment. It is important that you’re not paying inflated fees for sub-par services.
Health Canada approval guarantees:
Health Canada approval ensures that the microneedling device has undergone rigorous testing for safety and efficacy. Using an approved device reduces the risk of adverse reactions, infections, and other complications that can arise from subpar equipment.
- CONSISTENT RESULTS
Approved devices are designed to provide consistent results, ensuring that each treatment session is effective and delivers the desired improvements in your skin’s texture, tone, and elasticity.
- REGULATORY OVERSIGHT
Health Canada continuously monitors approved devices, ensuring they meet high standards. This oversight guarantees that the equipment used in your treatment is up-to-date and complies with the latest safety regulations.
- QUALITY ASSURANCE
Health Canada approval is a mark of quality. It signifies that the device manufacturer is committed to maintaining the highest standards in the industry. Choosing an approved device reflects a commitment to your overall well-being.
- LONG-TERM BENEFITS
Microneedling is an investment in your skin. Selecting a practitioner who uses a professional Health Canada approved device, ensures you’re investing in treatments that promote lasting results, rather than quick fixes that may compromise your skin’s health.
Stamping Devices vs. Electric or Battery-Powered Devices
In the realm of microneedling, it is also essential to recognize that not all Health Canada approved devices are created equal. While some stamping devices boast Health Canada approval, they may fall short in comparison to electric or battery-powered devices due to differences in:
- PRECISION & CONTROL
Electric or battery-powered devices offer practitioners greater precision and control. The depth and frequency of needle penetration can be adjusted with precision, tailoring the treatment to each client’s unique needs. Stamping devices may lack this level of customization.
- COMFORT & SPEED
Electric or battery-powered devices tend to be faster and more comfortable for patients. Their rapid needle movement minimizes discomfort, while stamping devices may be slower and less efficient.
Electric or battery-powered devices typically provide a more consistent needle depth across the treatment area, ensuring even results. Stamping devices may produce uneven results due to the manual nature of their operation.
When it comes to microneedling, your skin deserves the best care possible. Selecting a practitioner who uses a Health Canada approved device is an investment in your skin’s health, safety, and long-term well-being. However, it’s essential to be aware of the differences in microneedling devices within the approved category, as electric or battery-powered devices often offer superior precision, comfort, and consistency.
At Halcyon Cosmetic & Skin Clinic, we are proud to offer microneedling treatments using only Health Canada approved electric or battery-powered devices, ensuring that your skin receives the care and attention it deserves. Make an informed choice in your skincare journey, prioritizing safety, quality, and your skin’s radiant future.
