Microneedling With MicroPen
Automated micro-needling is an innovation in aesthetics for the treatment of the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and the skin’s texture, tone and color. The skin’s repair process results in improvement of the appearance of softer wrinkles. Eclipse MicroPen® is the most advanced medical-grade automated micro-needling device on the market.
What effects does the Medical Micro-Needling have on the skin?
- improves skin texture and reduces the appearance of wrinkles
- stimulates tissue regeneration
- disfiguring scars, especially acne scars can be improved as new collagen fibers elevate the depressed scar tissue with the periphery skin
- pore size reduction
- improves the appearance of stretch marks
PRP with Micro-Needling
What is PRP?
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. The platelets in our blood are cells designed to heal injuries and are filled with our own natural growth factors. The platelets in our blood are cells designed to heal injuries that are filled with our own natural growth factors. This makes them exponentially more effective than synthetic growth factors in rejuvenating our skin and hair follicles!
A topical numbing cream is applied to the treatment area. The patient’s blood is drawn, spun, and the PRP is separated and prepared for use. The numbing cream is removed. The area is then treated with passes of micro-needling with PRP. The procedure takes about 30 minutes. The patient will experience redness, maybe some pin-point bleeding which is easily wiped away after the treatment. Redness subsides in 3 to 5 days. Treatments are spaced 3-4 weeks apart with 3 or 6 treatments needed, depending upon what is being treated. Visible changes will develop over the course of several weeks.
