MCSC Newsletter, Fall 2018

Welcome back to all those who have traveled over the summer, and to everyone who is getting back into their routine after a hot and steamy summer. We’ve got loads of news to report. Dr. Weinberg was featured in an online video for Zoomer magazine and was also featured in an article in the Globe and Mail newspaper for his charitable for work at Art Works for cancer! Kudos Dr. Weinberg!

Both our doctors were also on hand to celebrate the nuptials of our dashing Croma representative, Manny Kapur this summer, photos of which you may have caught on Instagram! Both Dr. Weinberg and Dr. Schiffer attended the prestigious FACE meeting, an invitation only cosmetic conference for Canada’s top cosmetic injectors in Toronto recently, and Dr. Schiffer was also invited to speak on Migraine treatment at a meeting of local physicians.

We have more options than ever on offer at the clinic to make this fall your most beautiful yet. In addition to Platelet Rich Plasma, Microneedling is a hot treatment we are featuring this month. See our promo at the end of this newsletter. Also, check out new skincare products from Alumier, and the latest injectable, an “internal moisturizer” called Volite – more news to follow on all these new and exciting treatments!

Topics in Cosmetic Medicine


Microneedling is a treatment in which small punctures are produced in the skin by tiny needles, usually attached to a vibrating pen or rolling device. Your skin then launches repair processes. Similar to the pixelated effect seen in fractionated laser, needling affects small intermittent zones of the skin. Both fractionated lasers and needling improve skin tone and texture without excessive downtime, but microneedling heals more predictably, with less likelihood of complications such as burns from lasers. Also, needling can be used in darker skin types where a laser is not advised.

Are there Different Types of Microneedling?

Yes. You may have seen micro needling rollers for sale for home use, or heard your local spa advertise microneedling. The degree of benefit depends in part on the depth of the small needles. Medical microneedling is achieved with longer needles that penetrate deeper in the dermis, which stimulates more deposition of collagen and better results.

What are the benefits of microneedling?

When your skin starts repairing itself, many chemicals are released by the tissue, and collagen and elastin are laid down. This can improve:

  • Pore size
  • Acne scars and other minor scarring
  • Fine lines
  • Stretch marks

In the following areas:

  • Forehead
  • Smoker’s lines around eh mouth
  • Crow’s feet and crepiness around eyes
  • Cheeks
  • Necklace lines on the neck
  • Décolletage lines

Results can be enhanced by adding PRP, Platelet rich plasma, also known as. the “Vampire Facial”, or the “Kardashian Facial”. As PRP fluid is acidic, it can sting, so numbing cream is vital, and the addition of ice in sensitive areas helps with comfort.

What should you expect from a Medical microneedling treatment?

Avoid things like anti-inflammatories before the treatment that can predispose to bleeding or bruising. To begin, a topical numbing cream is applied to your skin for ten to fifteen minutes, after which the skin is cleansed with antiseptic. The procedure is then done and feels like a strong vibration over the surface of the skin. Most of our patients do not find the procedure painful, though some discomfort can be experienced in specific sensitive areas, such as around the mouth. These areas can be used before treatment to improve comfort, especially if PRP is also being done at the same time. There is some redness after microneedling, and this does mean some downtime. You won’t want to make plans right after the procedure, and likely will have some persistent redness for a couple of days. By day three you can cover any residual redness with cover up. If you’ve also had PRP, there is the chance of minor bruising, which can also be covered up with makeup.

How many and how often will you need to have a treatment?

The number of treatments depends on the goal of treatment, but typically 3 treatments are recommended to start with, in 4-6-week intervals with maintenance treatments every 6-9 months.

Who Should Carry Out the Procedure?

Medical microneedling, with significant depth of needles, should only be carried out by a medical practitioner. At our clinic, only Dr. Weinberg and our nurse Chris perform microneedling.

When can you expect to see results from microneedling?

The effects of microneedling can take 6 to 12 weeks to begin to be visible, and full benefits an take some months.

Are there Contraindications to microneedling?

Microneedling can be considered in all skin hues but should be avoided in anyone who has active inflammation, infection or high skin sensitivity such as impetigo, active acne or rosacea, or eczema. People who are known to scar badly, or specifically those who lay down pigment readily on healing, need to be carefully evaluated before deciding on microneedling.

    Let me know when u have a promo on injections alone.

    • Sandy, patient coordinator says:

      Hello G Thanks for your interest in injections at our clinic.
      Unfortunately we will not be able to contact you to update you about specials based on a reply to the newsletter alone. We do not have a mechanism to store your information via this field. If you sign up to receive our newsletters, you will receive them monthly, along with our specials! Hope that helps!

  6. Nellie says:

    About your promotion above….how can the three IPL treatments be used by Feb 28 if they must be spaced apart at least 2 weeks to a month? Do you mean the first of 3 must be used by Feb 28?

    • Sandy, patient coordinator says:

      Hello Nellie Thanks for your question regarding IPL. Treatments every two weeks would allow 3 treatments over this time period. Having said that, we are usually somewhat flexible about scheduling for our specials, so if there was a good reason to stretch out the treatment dates, we try to accommodate. Due to Holiday closures, and a lot of belated interest in the IPL special, we are extending this promotion throughout January. If you are interested in IPL, by all means book a consultation appointment by calling us at 905-273-3045, or you can contact me at sandy@mcsconline.com. Please be aware we can’t schedule appointments through this newsletter reply field. Wishing you a very Happy New Year!
