Dermapen treatment is an advanced non-surgical cosmetic procedure used to reduce wrinkles, smoker’s lines, large pores, heal acne, surgical and burn scars as well as rejuvenate and tighten the skin.Dermapen can also be used for other conditions such as improving stretch marks, regulating skin pigmentation, and treating sun damage.The Dermapen treatment uses multiple needles to vertically pierce the skin to create numerous micro wounds stimulating the body’s natural healing process, similar to the effect of a fractional laser treatment.
Microneedling can promote hair growth in androgenetic alopecia (male and female pattern baldness) by stimulating an increase in blood circulation and nutrient transportation to the follicle resulting in new hair growth. The concomitant application of growth promoting agents, such as topical minoxidil, have proven to be helpful as well and can be used with this treatment in the clinic.

During this exceptionally difficult time we have been closely monitoring what the public health officials have been sharing, and with that in mind, we are making important changes to the services we are offering at Polo Health + Longevity Centre.
At this time all non-essential visits have been moved to telephone consults and telemedicine.
Our front desk is open and available to help with your supplement needs, and for booking telephone appointments. As well, our pharmacy is open for all prescriptions. Hours are Monday-Friday 9:30am –5:30pm and Saturday 9:00am-5:00pm. If you wish to pick up supplements, please call ahead so we can get them ready for your pickup. If you are on the Pound-A-Day program, we encourage you to pick up your weekly B-12 shots so you can self-administer them at home. Dr. Polo and Dr. Kassam will follow up weekly by phone for the duration of your program and/or until we reopen for in-clinic visits. As the situation is changing rapidly, we want to make sure all of our patients are taken care of both physically and mentally. We continue to follow the situation closely and will continue to keep you all updated. Call in to book phone consults, refill your prescriptions, and pick-up any supplements you may need.
We recognize this is a trying and stressful time, and we urge to focus on your mental wellbeing through the chaos. Our team is still actively checking social media, and we are here to chat if you need anything.
Best In Health,
Dr. Allana Polo
