Juvanew Medspa offers Micro-Needling with the Eclipse MicroPen to treat fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars by stimulating production of the skin’s own collagen and elastin. Micro-needling is also called skin needling therapy or collagen induction therapy. It is a minimally-invasive, non-surgical and non-ablative procedure for facial rejuvenation that involves controlled skin injury.
How Does Micro-Needling Work?
The MicroPen is a cordless device that can easily be moved around the treatment area. A sterile needle-tip containing twelve micro-needles is attached to the end of the MicroPen. The depth of the needles is determined by the severity of the skin condition. The rapid pulsing motion of the needles allows the device to quickly treat the target area with minimal discomfort. The MicroPen can treat any area on the body, including the face, hands, arms, abdomen, etc. It works on both fine lines and wrinkles as well as deeper wrinkles and scars, though these conditions may require additional treatment sessions.
Am I a Good Candidate For Micro-Needling?
You’re a good candidate for micro-needling if you want to treat common complexion issues like acne scars, wrinkles and fine lines, hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone, and more.
How Long Does a Typical Treatment Take?
The typical treatment takes about an hour to perform. Before your treatment is performed, your technician will use a topical numbing cream so that you’re comfortable during your micro-needling session. As the MicroPen moves across the treatment area, patients report a feeling similar to a light sandpaper or vibrations moving across the skin. The speed at which the pen operates combined with the topical gel makes for a more comfortable experience.
What Results Will I See?*
Immediately after treatment, patients may notice their skin has a glow to it and looks more refreshed and smooth. Redness will occur in the treatment area and usually lasts 2 to 4 days. Your technician can recommend specific skin care products that may speed up the healing process. Results will become more visible typically within a few days and over the following weeks. Results can continue to improve for up to 6 months after the initial treatment. Patients typically receive 3 to 4 treatments, but many need up to 6 sessions each spaced 6 to 8 weeks apart. Patients with deep scarring or wrinkles are more likely to need extra sessions.
Is There Any Downtime?
There’s no downtime associated with your treatment, although you will need to wear sunscreen immediately after your procedure.
