What is Microneedling?
Microneedling treats the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and improves your overall skin’s appearance. During this resurfacing procedure, tiny needles are used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to naturally produce collagen and elastin. The skins repair process results in improvement of the appearance of softer wrinkles. Automated micro-needling also creates superficial micro-channels which can be used with topical gels, creams and serums to help improve the appearance of the epidermal layer of the skin.

We use the Eclipse MicroPen, which is the most advanced medical-grade automated micro-needling device on the market.
What are the benefits of Microneedling?
Reduction if fine lines, wrinkles, improved skin tone and texture, and softer, younger looking skin with fewer signs of aging. The Mirco Pen Elite, can improve the appearance of hypergmentation as well as uneven skin tone, acne scars, traumatic scars, and stretch marks.
The Microneedling Treatment and How It Works:
A topical gel is applied to clean skin. In most cases your practitioner will use a hydrating hyaluronic acid (HA) gel. This is a soothing product that helps the MicroPen glide across your skin creating superficial micro-injuries designed to ultimately improve your skin condition upon re-epithelialization. Then, our Aesthetician will select the appropriate pen setting based on your skin’s condition. They then will determine how many passes of the pen are required based on the clinical circumstances and general condition of the skin.
As the Eclipse MicroPen is applied to the skin, hundreds of superficial micro-channels or holes are created every few seconds. The process stimulates your skin’s 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.
What areas of the body can I treat?
Treatments can be done on any part of the body such as face, neck, chest, arms, legs, abdomen and back.
How long does the treatment take?
The procedure takes about 30 minutes depending on the size of the area treated.
How Is MicroPen Different From Dermal Needling Rollers?
MicroPen is inherently safer than dermal rollers, utilizing sterile single-use surgical grade disposable needle tips. The unique features of the Turbo Safety Needle ensures the Eclipse MicroPen delivers greater efficiency and superior clinical results while maintaining the highest level of safety for both patient and provider. It is also safe for ALL skin types which means it is a great procedure for almost everyone! Automated micro-needling devices move in a vertical direction for better precision when treating the skin. Unlike Automated Micro-needling the roller does not create a precise vertical action. The lack of precision can contribute to greater discomfort and inconsistent effects to the skin.
