Microneedling with Eclipse Micropen
Why consider Micropen treatment?
We lose about one percent of our collagen every year beginning in our twenties, so it is never too early to think about skin rejuvenation techniques that will minimize this collagen reduction. With microneedling, it is now possible to rejuvenate your skin by using your own body’s healing mechanisms!
What are the skin conditions that can be treated?
Many skin issues can be corrected with this remarkable treatment - enlarged pores, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven texture, acne scarring, hyperpigmentation and even stretch marks! FDA -approved microneedling with the Eclipse MicroPen is a safe, non-invasive technique capable of producing new collagen and improving multiple skin concerns all with the use of one device. With minimal to no downtime and simple aftercare, this treatment is ideal for many of our patients.
How does microneedling work?
Microneedling utilizes the Eclipse MicroPen, a device that glides over the face with multiple fine microneedles that are so tiny that one is hardly aware of them. The Eclipse Micropen is capable of treating superficial and deeper skin tissues depending on your concern. It can be used on the face, neck and other areas. When MicroPen causes the production of hundreds of superficial micro- channels every few seconds; these micro-channels stimulate a process called Epidermal Collagen Induction Therapy (ECIT) to stimulate the skin’s natural ability to heal itself. The new collagen and elastin that are produced lead to younger, firmer skin and can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, acne scars and textural issues. Our patients are thrilled with the results!
How many treatments are needed and when might I expect visible results?
Multiple treatments provide the best result and we offer several variations tailored to meet the needs of your skin. These include our HA treatment that uses microneedling with hyaluronic acid (HA), a building block of collagen synthesis. Our Stem Cell Micropen treatment utilizes HA followed by a plant-based stem cell infusion that immediately calms, soothes, and hydrates the skin. We are also excited to offer the Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment, the ultimate “crème de la crème” of microneedling. The beauty of PRP is that it utilizes platelets from your own body that release a cocktail of growth factors promoting tissue repair, skin cell growth, collagen production, and the de-novo regeneration of skin cells. Real results can be seen in four months or less and the positive effects can be seen beyond!
Immediately following a treatment session, skin appears pink with possible pinpoint bleeding, which is a desirable characteristic of the treatment. These post treatment effects are short-lived and skin will feel tighter and begin to glow after a single use of the MicroPen. Best results are achieved with a series of treatments, and these are enhanced by a unique post-care regiment that plumps the skin with hyaluronic acid and healing antioxidants.
MicroPen will re-write the future of your skin! During your complimentary consultation, our dermatologists will let you know if this treatment is right for you.
