Microneedling

The Eclipse MicroPen™ can be used for the successful treatment of a variety of indications including acne scars, stretch marks, hyper-pigmentation, large pores, fine wrinkles, and hair restoration (when combined with platelet-rich plasma). The results are overall younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging.*

Using multiple microscopic needles to penetrate the surface layers of skin, Micropen® Micro Needling tightens, lifts, and rejuvenates skin by naturally stimulating collagen production. Micropen® is a holistic approach to skin therapy. Your physiological wound response stimulates new healthy dermal and epidermal tissue growth. Using multiple microscopic needles to penetrate the surface layers of skin, Micropen creates very small wound patterns and promotes healing to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet, lip lines and rosacea. No laser heat is introduced. So unlike fractional laser treatments, IPL, and laser resurfacing, there is minimal downtime, minimal discomfort, and an almost immediate outcome.

This treatment provides dramatic results in wrinkle and fine line reduction, pore size reduction, scar and acne scar, pigmentation and stretch mark reduction. Some patients need only one treatment to see visible results. Though, most will need several treatments spaced 6-12 weeks apart, dependent on the condition to be treated and the desired outcome.

When used to infuse PRP (also available at Silk Touch), MicroPen™ enhances the outcome, increases total collagen production and accelerates healing.

FAQs:

What does it feel like?

It feels similar to sandpaper being moved across the skin. While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating needle makes the treatment comfortable.

How long does it take?

The procedure takes about about 20-30 minutes depending on the size of the treated area.

What is the downtime?

Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin. Downtime is usually no more than 24hr depending on individual treatments.
