Micro-needling (or skin needling) is a minimally invasive treatment to promote skin renewal. Using the Eclipse MicroPen, a precisely-spaced micro-needling device, thousands of invisible and virtually painless perforations are made to the skin. By creating these microscopic channels in the skin, the body responds by increasing the formation of new tissue as well as releasing growth factors that promote scar repair and healing.
This results in the skin becoming firmer and regaining elasticity, fine lines, and wrinkles are visibly reduced, pores become finer and the overall condition of the skin improves. It can also be used to treat acne scarring to improve the skin’s appearance.
The procedure involves the application of a topical anesthetic, typically requiring 45 minutes to 1 hour to prepare the skin for the procedure. The actual micro-needling procedure takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. Growth factors are then applied to the skin that penetrates through the micro-perforations and assists with wound healing, followed by a calming serum. Make-up can be applied 4 hours after completion of the procedure.
Recovery is minimal. The skin will be irritated the first night after the procedure, but it improves the following day. Redness of the skin will continue for 2 to 3 days although it is easily covered with makeup, so no time away from work is required.
You will notice an immediate improvement in your skin. For the best results, we recommend a total of four treatments, spaced four weeks apart each. Booster treatments can be done yearly to maintain your results.
