What is Microneedling ?

Microneedling is also known as collagen induction therapy and promotes cell regeneration. This is the BEST treatment for large pores, acne scars, fine lines, photo-aging, and tightens the skin. It helps to rejuvenate, re-texturize, and resurface the skin. It also reduces scars and stretch marks and can be done almost anywhere on the body.

How is Microneedling done?

At Innovative Men's Health, we feature the Skin Stylus microneedling pen. This particular pen has the smallest and finest gauge needles on the market making it by far, the most comfortable treatment option available today. We apply numbing to the area being treated and wait for approx 20 min. Then we create tiny channels on the skin, which helps to stimulate collagen and elastin. 

Microneedling excels at smoothing out the sensitive areas around the eyes and crow’s feet as well as those upper-lips wrinkles.

What Should I expect at my Microneedling appointment?

We apply numbing to the area being treated and wait for approx 20 min. Then we use our Skin Stylus to create tiny channels on the skin, to stimulate collagen and elastin. We feature the Skin Stylus microneedling pen which is, by far, the most comfortable treatment.

Is that all?

Not quite, We finish with luxury brand skin care serums that are rich in advanced ingredients such as botanical stem cells, peptides and vitamins, These serums are important for hydrating and contain protective ingredients vital to maintaining and enhancing the skin.

How long is my microneedling recovery time?

There is minimal recovery time as well with this treatment, social downtime is the first 2-3 days. We recommend coming in for a treatment on a Friday eve and then taking the weekend off. You will want to have extremely gentle cleanser and moisturizer on hand for the first 3 days. We recommend 3-6 treatments.

What are skin spots?

As most of us age, we begin to see visible signs of sun damage appearing on the skin in the form of spots.  Whatever you want to call these little skin discolorations, they can be very annoying and tend to make the skin look older.

What is Hyperpigmentation?

Hyperpigmentation is a (usually) harmless condition in which patches of skin become darker in color than the normal surrounding skin. This darkening occurs when an excess of melanin, the brown pigment that produces normal skin color, forms deposits in the skin.

What can be done for skin spots & Hyperpigmentation?

Let our IPL/Photofacial treatment improve the tone and clarity of your skin, and you too will be able to finally say good bye to sun damage, rosacea, redness, veins, acne marks, scars, age spots, and melasma. We use the Alma Dye VL laser to dramatically target brown pigmented areas and red vascular imperfections on the face and body. This laser is extremely effective thereby requiring less treatments. The particular laser treatment has been featured on "The Drs" 

How does the Laser work?

intense pulsed light’s wavelength is concentrated so it is safe and more consistent, but also has a cooling tip to make it more relaxing.This laser has a cooled tip and In Motion technology that makes the treatment more comfortable than other lasers.  It also stimulates cells that produce collagen, so skin texture is firmer.  After 1-2 weeks, spots get darker, slough off, and disappear to reveal flawless, even-toned skin. IPL/Photofacial can treat sun damage on any part of your face and body.

Many people find this treatment especially effective on the chest, shoulders, arms and anywhere there has been more sun exposure and damage .  Come get a treatment and kiss those dark spots goodbye.

    Melasma & Chloasma

    Melasma & cholasma are discolouring of the skin, primarily on the face

    * Currently only available at our Bellevue location.

    What is Melasma?

    From the American Academy of Dermatology

    "Melasma (muh-LAZ-muh) is a common skin problem. It causes brown to gray-brown patches, usually on the face. Most people get it on their cheeks, bridge of their nose, forehead, chin, and above their upper lip. It also can appear on other parts of the body that get lots of sun, such as the forearms and neck."

    Melasma tends to be more frequent with women than men. This is especially true of pregnant women. In fact, melasma is sometimes called "the mask of pregnancy" due to the frequency in which it occurs in pregnant women.

    What Is Chloasma?

    Chloasma is another name for Melasma.  It is a temporary darkening of the skin, primarily on the face. While it usually fades, some people have it for years. 

    Who is likely to be affected by Melasma & Chloasma?

    It is said that Melasma & Chloasma affects over five million Americans and generally appears on people with darker skin tones because they have more active melanocytes than those with lighter skin tones. 

    Can they be treated?

    This the hardest thing we treat in skin care.  But we have found a way to combat this problem using several modalitiesTOGETHER.

    • ClearLift Laser breaks up pigmentation
    • Dye VL’s narrow band of light targets the melanin and broken up pigment, which lifts and exfoliates like no other IPL laser!
    • Retinol Brightening Serum –  the most powerful lightener with 2% retinol, plus Kojic Acid, Alpha Arbutin, and Liquorice Root.
    • PCA Peel with Hydroquinone and Resorcinol – medical grade peel fades stubborn surface pigment in between Dye VL treatments.
    • SheerZinc Sunscreen – protect your new, beautiful, even-toned skin and prevent any new pigment spots from popping up.

    Vascular Irregularities

    Vascular Irregularities


    * Currently only available at our Bellevue location.

    What is a Vascular Irregularity?

    Vascular skin problems are often caused by issues with the vascular, or circulatory, system. The skin, also called the dermis, is one of the largest organs in the human body, and it is laced with capillaries that transport nutrients and oxygen in the blood. Some of the more common vascular irregularities that we treat are Rosacea and Angiomas (sometimes called spider veins) 

    What is Rosacea?

    Rosacea is a fairly common vascular abnormality that tends to most frequently afflict people with fair skin and blue eyes. While the exact cause is not currently defined, the resulting blush of the skin is caused by prominent blood vessels found near the surface of the skin and most common on the face. 

    Why is the Dye-VLlaser the The Technology of Choice for Treating Vascular Lesions?

    Spider Veins, Rosacea, facial flushing, and vascular imperfections just underneath the surface of the skin can all be treated with the Dye-VL Laser. The Dye-VL utilizes a narrowband (500-600nm) wavelength that allows the precision required to target only the melanin in the lesion or blood vessel.

    So...In Laymans terms?

    This laser gives the perfect amount of energy to achieve superior results and get rid of the red.

    Innovative Men's Health recommends: 

    2-3 treatments recommended, depending on the size and severity.  Come see the difference!

    Stretch Marks

    What are stretch marks?

    Stretch marks are just exactly that - It is where the skin has been stretched, usually from rapid growth, and often results in a discolouration. This happens when the skin can not bounce back from an intense period of growth. While stretch marks may fade - they don't always disappear.

    Stretch marks are common during puberty for both boys and girls.
    As adults  - Weightlifters commonly develop stretch marks.

    In women stretch marks are common in the later stages of pregnancy

    How are they treated?

    Laser therapy  & Microneedling have both been proven effective for stretch mark removal.  Microneedling is great for helping to eliminate stretch marks.  After the Microneedling procedure is done and as the body is healing, it generates new collagen which is used to heal the original tear in the dermis that cause the stretch mark to show initially.

    Innovative Men's Health recommends: 

    5-8 treatments as well as a few laser treatments.

    NOTE: These modalities work well together to really change and reverse the process as though the stretch mark never even existed.

    Why live with your stretch marks when you can fade or get rid of them altogether?

    Toenail fungus 

    * Currently only available at our Bellevue location.

    What causes Toenail fungus?

    Toenail fungus is rather common and occurs from the overgrowth of fungi in, under, or on the nail. Fungi thrive in warm, moist environments such as the one found in your gym shoe or work boot. The same fungi that cause jock itch, athlete's foot, and ringworm can cause nail infections. 

    You're more likely to develop a fungal nail infection if you:

    • have diabetes
    • have a disease that causes poor circulation
    • are over age 65
    • wear artificial nails
    • swim in a public swimming pool
    • have a nail injury
    • have a skin injury around the nail
    • have moist fingers or toes for an extended time
    • have a weakened immune system
    • wear closed-toe shoes, such as tennis shoes or boots

    Nail infections occur more often in adult men than adult women, While children can get them, it is far less common. You are more likely to get this type of infection If you have family members who often get fungal infections, Older adults are often at the highest risk for fungal infections of the nails due to poorer circulation, slower nail growth, & thicker nails.

    Did you know that Laser therapy is the newest treatment for treating nail fungus?

    It improves the appearance of the nails by penetrating the nail plate and destroying the fungus under the nail. There are no side effects or pain.  Best results  are with three laser sessions and the use of a new process to keep the nail from getting more fungus.  NOTE: This only works on nails with actual fungus inside of it.
