Should I Consider the Eclipse MicroPen® Elite Treatment?
Posted July 25, 2019 in Microneedling
Having acne-prone skin can be a constant aggravation. Even when the breakouts stop, many people are still left with scars, pockmarks, and even changes in skin tone and texture.
There are many options available to manage acne and its symptoms, ranging from skin care to medical means. The Eclipse MicroPen® Elite can now be added to the list of the best ways to rejuvenate and refresh skin. It’s a unique, non-invasive measure that goes deeper than skin care to repair skin from within.
What Is Micro-needling?
Micro-needling involves using a device with tiny needles on it that rolls over the surface of the skin. The needles prick the surface enough to prompt the skin’s natural regeneration process, pumping up collagen and elastin production.
This process helps generate new skin tissue, leading to skin that feels firmer, smoother, and looks healthier. Micro-needling can help treat:
- Wrinkles and lines
- Dark spots
- Scars, including pockmarks from acne
- Stretch marks
- Loose skin
Micro-needling is a minimally invasive procedure that requires no downtime. Most patients can safely undergo micro-needling treatments with few side effects, a huge benefit over more invasive measures.
What is Eclipse MicroPen® Elite Treatment?
Eclipse MicroPen® Elite treatment takes micro-needling treatments to the next level. It essentially ups the ante by using what’s called auto-microneedling technology in a cordless device to deliver an arguably better treatment.
MicroPen® Elite boosts the production of new skin cells, improving how skin looks and feels from within. It can be used to help reduce wrinkles, dark spots, or scars from acne and other conditions.
MicroPen® Elite can be used on all parts of the body, including the face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen, and back.
How Does MicroPen® Elite Work?
The cordless pen has a sterile tip with 12 micro-tips and several different treatment settings that can be customized to suit the patient’s unique skin needs. Skin is first cleaned and prepared with sterile saline before treatment.
The MicroPen® Elite is gently pressed against the skin and glided in one direction, in a single motion, thanks to its auto-microneedling technology.
Treatments generally take 15 to 30 minutes to complete. Most patients say the treatment feels somewhat like sandpaper running across the skin, but there’s usually no other type of discomfort.
What is MicroPen® Elite Recovery Like?
There’s no downtime associated with a MicroPen® Elite treatment—patients can simply pop in, get a treatment done within 30 minutes, and walk out the door with skin that’s already well on its way to looking better.
Most patients will need at least two or three MicroPen® Elite treatments, spaced several weeks apart, to achieve the best outcome. Patients with deep wrinkles, stretch marks, or other advanced signs of aging and skin damage may require more treatments.
Skin will be red right after the treatment. The redness may linger for a few days, but some patients may find it subsiding within the first day. After it’s over, patients should notice immediate skin improvement that can continue for up to six months after treatment.
What Can MicroPen® Elite Do For Me?
MicroPen® Elite is a great way to rejuvenate tired or rough-looking skin. It’s a treatment that’s quickly completed in-office, making it a convenient option for busy patients who may not have the time for other methods.
MicroPen® Elite restores skin that’s suffered through years of acne and its related symptoms, often taking its toll on people’s self-esteem. Even the most beautiful people in the world can feel self-conscious when it comes how their skin looks. MicroPen® Elite ensures that skin stays smooth and healthy for years to come.
