GET THE MICROPEN FAQ’S & SEE IF MICROPEN IS THE RIGHT TREATMENT FOR YOU
As the Eclipse MicroPen® tip is applied to the skin thousands of superficial micro-channels or holes are created every second. The process stimulates your skins natural ability to heal itself. This repair process begins almost immediately. As a result, new collagen and elastin produce softer, firmer skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, acne scars and textural issues.
The advanced microneedling technology is beneficial in addressing a wide range of irregularities in the skin’s appearance as well as offering generally more youthful, vibrant looking, and feeling skin. MicroPen EVO can treat all of the following issues: • Fine lines and wrinkles • Enlarged pores • Acne scars • Surgical scars • Improves skin texture and tone. • Stretch marks
A sterile needle-tip containing 12 tiny micro-needles is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen® EVO. You will be numbed for 30 minutes prior to your procedure using a topical numbing cream. Your Nurse will remove the numbing cream and then apply a thin layer of topical gel to your skin. Next, the MicroPen will be gently pressed against the skin until the entire treatment area has been covered.
While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating needle tip reduces discomfort while the applied hydrating gel also makes the treatment more tolerable.
You will be numbing for 30 minutes and then the procedure takes 30 minutes depending on the size of the area treated.
You will likely notice the treated area is pink and mildly inflamed (similar to the appearance of a mild sunburn) for 24-48 hours following your procedure.
Patients notice an immediate “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.
It is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 3-5 treatments spaced about 4-6 weeks apart.
