A comfortable, non-ablative form of laser rejuvenation skin therapy that gently heats the dermis to stimulate and increase the production of collagen and elastin fiber growth. You can expect to see subtle yet consistent results after each treatment without any downtime.
Micro-Needling is used to:
- Improve wrinkles, minimize pore size, and induce skin tightening.
- Stimulate collagen production to promote rejuvenation.
- Improve surgical, traumatic, burn and acne scars.
- Reduce Hyperpigmentation (brown spots and melasma).
- Improve stretch marks and stimulate hair growth.
Micro-needling may be used with or without PRP (platelet rich plasma).
Testimonials from our clients:
“I look forward to every treatment because I see results. All of my friends compliment me on my skin now and I am so happy. I have had many other treatments before to treat my Acne scars, and nothing worked as well as the MicroPen™. I would highly recommend it to anyone!”
– Elizabeth K.
“The Eclipse MicroPen™ is a fantastic treatment! I was in no pain and I could go back to work the same day. After a few days my skin was so soft and the texture had improved dramatically.”
– Kathleen Y.
What is micro-needling?
Micro-Needling is an innovation in aesthetic medicine for treating the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and improvement of the skin’s overall appearance. We use the Eclipse MicroPen® and SkinPen technology.
During this procedure, tiny needles are used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin to produce collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in improvement of the appearance of softer wrinkles.
Micro-needling also creates superficial micro-channels which can be used with topical gels, creams, and serums to help improve the appearance of the skin.
What are the benefits?
Micro-needling gives skin an overall fresh, youthful appearance with fewer signs of aging by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, and pore size.
What areas of the body can I treat?
Micro-needling can be used on all parts of the body including the face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.
How is the procedure done?
A topical anesthetic will be applied before the procedure to the area being treated.
A thin layer of topical gel or your plasma is applied to your skin and your skincare professional will select the appropriate setting based on your unique needs.
A pen with tiny micro needles will be gently pressed against the skin, while simultaneously gliding in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered.
How long does the procedure take?
The procedure takes 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the area treated.
What is the downtime?
Directly after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin similar to a sunburn.
The total healing time depends on the settings used and the number of overlapping passes your skincare professional performs. On average, patients are red 2 to 4 days.
Quality skincare products can help to speed up the healing process and can be discussed with your skincare professional.
When will I see the results?
Patients notice a “glow” to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several days and weeks. Results continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment as collagen production continues.
How many treatments will I need?
It is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart. Some patients will only require a single treatment once per year to achieve optimal results.
