Micro-needling with the Eclipse MicroPen to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and diminish scars
The Eclipse MicroPen Scottsdale makes use of a process known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) or Micro-Needling to treat fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks and acne scars by stimulating production of the skin’s own collagen and elastin. Because collagen and elastin are found naturally in the skin, they help give skin a healthy glow as well as a more youthful appearance without the downtime of surgery or more aggressive treatments. The MicroPen uses automated, uniform oscillation to reduce trauma to the skin allowing you to go about your daily activities with little to no noticeable side effects.
I favor the Eclipse MicroPen because it is a cordless device that makes it easier for me to move around the desired treatment area. A sterile needle-tip containing micro-needles is attached to the end of the MicroPen and the rapid pulsing motion of the needles allows the device to quickly treat the target area with minimal discomfort. The severity of the skin condition will determine the depth in which the pen will enter the skin.
One of the great things about the MicroPen, in my opinion, is that it can treat any area on the body, including the face, hands, arms, abdomen, buttocks and legs. Not only does it work on fine lines and wrinkles, but it helps eliminate deep wrinkles and scars. The amount of treatments needed with the MicroPen will be dependent on skin conditions and the severity of the condition.
My patients treated with micro-needling in Scottsdale see results immediately following their treatment. Patients will notice their skin looks more refreshed and has a glow to. After your Scottsdale MicroPen treatment, redness will occur in the treated area and usually lasts 24-72 hours. I can recommend specific skin care products that may speed up the healing process or reduce the redness. Once the redness subsides, results will become more visible. This typically happens within a few days and into the following weeks. However, results can continue to improve the appearance in your skin for several months after the initial Scottsdale MicroPen treatment. I usually recommend my patients typically receive 5 treatments, but many need more sessions dependent upon the severity of the scarring or wrinkles.
Common conditions I treat with the Eclipse MicroPen include:
- Acne scarring
- Trauma scarring
- Fine lines
- Stretch marks
- Tired, dull skin
