Canada Health is the federal regulator of therapeutic products, including medical devices. Medical micro-needling equipment is required to be registered as Class 2 Medical device.

For patients with more significant skin-care concerns, such as acne scars, 5 or more sessions might initially be needed initially. Maintenance is usually 1-3 times a year.
