MicroPen Skin Rejuvenation Therapy
MicroPen skin rejuvenation therapy is an excellent treatment when you want great results with virtually no downtime. Like many skin rejuvenation therapies, MicroPen micro-needling uses the body's natural healing system to fill tiny holes in the skin surface with new collagen. The result is firmer, smoother, younger looking skin.
Body Beautiful uses the Eclipse MicroPen, a medical-grade device, to perform micro-needling for skin rejuvenation. A new, sterile tip is used for each treatment. The tiny holes created by the ultra-fine needles creates micro-channel in the skin. This allows topical treatments to be absorbed more effectively, and triggers the body's healing system to regenerate collagen and elastin.
MicroPen skin rejuvenation therapy can be used on all parts of the body: face, neck, decollete, hands, arms, legs, back, and even on the abdomen. MicroPen skin rejuvenation therapy is an excellent in the treatment to reduce the signs of aging, reduce the appearance of acne scars, and reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
Micro-needling with the MicroPen is an affordable and effective skin rejuvenation treatments with virtually no downtime.
What Can I Expect From MicroPen Therapy?
A quick procedure with great results!
Your MicroPen skin rejuvenation treatment begins with application of a topical anesthetic to help ensure your comfort. A new, sterile tip is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen for each treatment. The topical anesthetic is removed, and a thin layer of topical gel is applied to help the MicroPen glide across the skin.
The tip of the MicroPen is gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding in one direction across the treatment area. Often, multiple passes are performed to deliver the most effective treatment. As the Dr. in this video clip from "The Doctors" explains, it's like an anti-aging tattoo.
Like Micro-Needling, MicroPen therapy produces improvements in both skin quality and skin texture.
After the MicroPen micro-needling treatment, you will have some reddening of the skin. Redness typically fades over the next few hours. You will notice visible improvements over the course of several weeks. These include:
- Reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Improvement in skin firmness and smoother skin texture.
- Reduction in the appearance of uneven skin tone (hyperpigmentation).
- Improvement in the appearance of scars and stretch marks.
MicroPen Therapy Frequently Asked Questions
Is MicroPen Therapy Painful?
The feeling associated with Eclipse MicroPen is similar to sandpaper being moved across the skin. While everyone is different, and some areas treated can be more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating needle tip makes the treatment more comfortable. This also means minimal discomfort and minimal downtime, with some patients healing completely in 24 hours, and redness on average lasting no more than 2-4 days.
How long will it take to see results?
Patients notice an immediate "glow" to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several weeks. Results can continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment as collagen production continues.
How many treatments will I need?
Some patients only require a single treatment once a year to achieve optimal results. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars, it is recommend to receive 6-8 sessions at 6-week intervals.
