What is MicroPen™ Treatment by Eclipse?
In this procedure, a micro-needling device with single-use sterile needle tips is applied to reduce lines and wrinkles, as well as to improve scars due to acne or trauma. The professionals at Accent On You use the MicroPen™ by Eclipse, a cordless battery-operated dermal device, for the effective treatment of patients who wish to improve the appearance of their skin without experiencing uncomfortable side effects.
Benefits of MicroPen™ Treatment by Eclipse
For patients choosing the MicroPen™ procedure, the benefits include:
- Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
- Improvement of scars and stretch marks
- Safe for all skin types
- Little discomfort and downtime
- Customized treatment options
- Overall improved appearance of the skin on any area of the body
How is MicroPen™ Treatment by Eclipse Performed?
First, a soothing topical solution, such as hyaluronic acid gel, is applied to make sure that the MicroPen™ glides smoothly across your skin. We will select the appropriate pen tips according to your skin condition and needs. After this, we will determine if one, two, or more passes are necessary for best results. While the MicroPen™ is running in the automatic vibrating function, its 12 tiny needles located on the tip of the pen create a large number of little holes and channels. These micro-injuries are designed to stimulate your skin’s ability to heal itself. During the healing process, your skin is being improved and resurfaced through the formation of new collagen and elastin fibers. As a result, your skin will look firmer, softer, and will show fewer wrinkles, scars or stretch marks. Depending on the size of the area to be treated, the procedure typically takes between 15 and 30 minutes.
Dr. Nakamura and his staff are wonderful. Everyone is very professional and the office setting is peaceful and welcoming.
Preparing for MicroPen™ Treatment by Eclipse
Since this treatment is not very invasive or aggressive, generally no special preparations are required on the days prior to the procedure. We ask that you not wear any makeup on the day of treatment because your skin needs to be clean for the Eclipse MicroPen™ treatment. If applicable, we will explain to you any specific preparation hints during your consultation.
Recovery after MicroPen™ Treatment by Eclipse
Immediately after the procedure, the skin will have a nice glow, however, it will show some redness for up to three days. This can be relieved by applying specific skin care products that may also speed up the healing process. You may feel some discomfort for a few days after the treatment, but this will decrease over time. When the redness diminishes, results will become more visible, and your skin will look smoother and more rejuvenated. Depending on how deep the pen penetrated into the skin, the natural healing of the skin may take up to a month. For your daily skin regimen after the procedure, we recommend using a soothing cleanser and a hydrating moisturizer containing hyaluronic acid.
