Are you ready to enhance the health and appearance of your skin? Come try our new innovation in aesthetics medicine, the automated Micro-Needling treatment with MicroPen™. Eclipse MicroPen™ device works with the body’s natural immune response in a treatment called “percutaneous collagen induction therapy” (PCIT). MicroPen™ is a fractional device that creates small channels in the skin and activates the natural restorative processes of the body to transform blemished and damaged tissue into smoother, clearer, more vibrant skin.
Eclipse MicroPen™ has a positive effect on a wide range of conditions:
• Fine lines and moderate wrinkles
• Uneven skin tone and texture
• Premature aging from sun exposure
• Stretch marks
• Scars from acne, surgery or traumatic injury
• Enlarged pores
• Mild to moderate skin looseness
The MicroPen™ can be used to treat face, neck, décolletage, back, abdomen, arms, hands and legs
MICROPEN NYC FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The MicroPen™ device uses multiple microscopic needles that penetrate the surface layers of skin in a very precise manner. These micro-injuries to the skin stimulate the body’s natural immune response to produce new collagen and elastin – the support system of healthy skin. As the treated area heals, smoother and healthier-looking skin appears. At Aura Laser & Skincare we use micro-needling techniques for application of topical gel or PRP (Plasma Reach Platelets). Platelets in your blood contain numerous growth factors that stimulate proliferation of collagen and hyaluronic acid. Natural collagen production fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, even pore size while hyaluronic acid has been shown to increase skin tone and volume providing a more youthful appearance. The MicroPen™ can also be used with Hyaluronic Acid and other peptide gels.
A sterile needle-tip containing 12 tiny micro-needles is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen. A thin layer of topical gel will be applied to your skin and select the appropriate treatment depth based on your unique needs will be chosen. Next, in a single motion, the pen is gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered. Treatment time depends on the size of the treatment area and usually takes about 15 to 30 minutes.
Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin. The redness may take anywhere from 24 hours to 4 days to go away. The total healing time depends on the depth of needles used and the number of overlapping passes. Utilizing PRP post treatment will speed up the healing process.
Visible improvements to the treated area begin to appear over 2 to 3 weeks. Results continue to improve up to 6 months following treatment as collagen production continues.
Some patients only require 1 treatment each year. For optimal results, we recommend to receive a series of 3 treatments at intervals of 3 to 6 weeks. More severe or advanced conditions, such as scars or deeper wrinkles, can require up to 8 sessions at 6 weeks intervals.
