Revitalize Your Skin with Micro-Needling
Micro-needling is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for the treatment of fine lines, acne scars, stretch marks and also improves the overall texture, tone and color of the skin. This new treatment reverses years of sun damage and reduces the signs of aging … almost anywhere on your body – legs, arms, stomach, back, face, hands and more.
Results can be seen in as little as one treatment!
What’s the Downtime?
Most patients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several weeks, and continue to improve up to 6 months. Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to your skin.
The total healing time depends on the depth of needles used. On average, patients are red for 2-4 days, but some heal completely in 24 hours.
How Does it Work?
Automated Micro-Needling is also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, or CIT. Tiny needles are used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin, which then produces collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker dermis with softer wrinkles. The Eclipse MicroPen™ also creates micro-channels which allow topical gels, creams and serums to be absorbed more effectively, enhancing their effects in deeper layers on the skin.
Does It Hurt?
The feeling of the treatment is similar to sand paper being moved across the skin and the speed of the reciprocating needle tip makes the treatment comfortable. Some areas are more sensitive than others, but the treatment takes just 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the area.
