Eclipse MicroPen™ Automated MicroNeedling
What is Micropen and Microneedling
Micro-Needling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for the improvement of skin texture and tone. During the procedure, tiny needles are used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to produce new collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in a stronger dermis with softer wrinkles and improved skin texture.
Micropen is a safe and effective treatment for people of any age group looking to improve their skin texture and tone. For those with deep wrinkles or those simply looking to prevent new lines and wrinkles, micropen may be an appropriate procedure in your treatment plan. It is also helpful for those experiencing pigmentation changes such as hyperpigmentation and some cases of hypopigmentation. Micropen may be a safe alternative for those who are not candidates for laser treatment and for darker pigmented skin types due to the procedures low risk profile and minimal downtime. Additionally, micropen is a powerful tool for treating scars on both face and body.
How it works
A medical grade device called the Eclipse Micropen ™ uses 12 small needles along with vibration to create painless micro-injuries and channels over the entire skin surface of the face and neck. This process stimulate the body’s innate healing response deep within the dermal layer of your skin and also allow for therapeutic serums applied during treatment to penetrate deeper into the skin. This healing response signals specific cells and compounds to create new collagen and elastin which is what keeps the skin looking smooth and toned. This concept is important because as we age, new collagen is made only when signaled to do so.
The Inner Image Way
At Inner Image we optimize the MicroPen treatment by selecting a combination of therapeutic “boosts” that are applied to the skin during treatment. We also utilize Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) which is widely recognized for its rejuvenation properties. Since the Micropen needles create micro-channels into the skin, it’s the perfect opportunity to infuse pharmaceutical grade nutrients and growth factors directly into deeper levels of the skin where corrective and healing processes begin. The result is increased collagen and elastin production, reduced redness and inflammation, brighter and more even-toned complexion.
