One Of Calgary’s Top Collagen Induction Microneedling Providers


With nearly 25 years of proven clinical and real-world results, Collagen Induction Microneedling Therapy has established itself as a stand-alone solution in a world of endless skin care therapies.

Collagen Induction Therapy (AKA: Microneedling) helps stimulate your own body’s release of a variety of growth factors that revitalize your skin and increase its collagen levels.

Here at Viso, we pride ourselves on offering all our clients the very best spa products, services, and attention possible.

There are many different Collagen Induction Therapy systems available these days, but we took the time to carefully research each one before deciding on a system we believe is the very best for our clients…

After careful consideration, in-depth research, and detailed comparison, we chose to go with the INNOPen Micro-needling Collagen Induction Therapy system.


Benefits of INNOPen Micro-needling

Result driven and Health Canada approved, the INNOPen is a safe and effective addition to anyone’s anti-aging routine. The results of the INNOPen Micro-needling treatment include improved skin tone, improved skin texture, enhanced radiance, and a more youthful appearance overall. In addition to these visible benefits, INNOPen can enhance your anti-aging routine in other ways.

This innovative treatment improves the skin’s ability to absorb serums and topical creams and, over time, diminishes the look of pores and gives a more firm appearance to the face. This is an excellent option for all skin types – except active acne. However, acne scarring sees incredible results with the INNOPen.

Frequently Asked INNOPen Questions:

• What is the INNOPen Micro-needling procedure?

This is a minimally invasive procedure which involves no preparation. At your appointment, we will apply a numbing cream to the treatment area and allow it to take effect before continuing. Once you are numb, we proceed with the InnoPen Micro-needling treatment. The most common treatment areas for this procedure are the face, neck, and décolletage.

The entire process will take around one hour, depending on the area being treated. Prepare to be here for 90 minutes unless otherwise specified.

• Is INNOPen Micro-needling right for me?

If you wish to look more radiant, yet do not wish to undergo surgery, injections, or laser procedures, then INNOPen Micro-needling could be an excellent option for you to consider.

Most all skin types benefit greatly from micro-needling.

• How much does INNOPen Micro-needling cost?

Cost will depend on the treatment area you choose. The most common treatment area is the face, though we will recommend other areas if we see that you can benefit. However, if we do not believe you will benefit from the micro needling treatment then we will not make any recommendations.

Your cost for 1 treatment for the face is $399, and we also offer a package of 3 face treatments for $1050. We accept cash, debit, all major credit card, and payment plans are available for packages that are over $1500.

• What to expect during your INNOPen consultation

Your skin will be assessed to make sure you are a good candidate for this procedure. We will assess the treatments that are needed as well as home care, and you will get an upfront price for everything that is needed for optimum results. You will also be given instructions on what to do before and after your INNOPen Micro-needling treatment to help things go as smoothly as possible.

• What does the INNOPen Micro-needling Treatment feel like?

An INNOPen Collagen Induction Treatment is virtually painless. At most some light pressure can be felt. While some areas may feel more sensitive to others, the design of the INNOPen System, unlike other micro-needling systems, has taken many factors into consideration where client comfort is concerned. You will have a topical anesthetic applied to the treatment area prior to each treatment for added comfort.

• What is the down time and what side effects should I expect?

Most all healing will take place within the first 2-4 hours post treatment and most clients should be completely healed within 24 hours. However some more sensitive skins may require up to 48-72 hours post treatment. After the treatment you can expect some slight swelling, heat, and redness (like a mild sunburn). These symptoms can vary from 3–10 days, depending on the service provided.

You can apply makeup after 24 hours. However, like any other Spa treatments at Viso Medi Spa, 3-4 days is recommended.

• Do I have to use certain products at home with the INNOPen Collagen Induction Micro-Needling treatments?

Yes. Viso Medi Spa carries and has succeeded in researching entire product lines that are safe to use prior to, and following your micro-needling treatments. The use of products that are not recommended by Viso Medi Spa can result in burning, stinging, discomfort, excessive redness, and possibly infection. Please ask your Viso Technician what products are right for your needs.

• Do you see a difference after one treatment?

Yes. After your first INNOPen Collagen Induction treatment you will show some enhancement. Real differences are achieved after 3-6 INNOPen Micro-Needling treatments. Your Viso technician will recommend a series of treatments and proper at-home maintenance depending on the age, complexity, and severity of the damaged skin. Starting your home maintenance immediately is important to achieving optimum results.

• Is there anyone who should not have the INNOPen Collagen Induction Therapy?

Yes. It is important to honestly speak to your Viso technician about any health concerns you may have, and/or if you are taking any medications.

Also, there are certain skin types that should not receive micro-needling (an example would be anyone who has rosacea). There are other treatments that your Viso technician will recommend for rosacea or other conditions that are unable to have the INNOPen therapy.
