Have you envisioned what it would be like to reduce your fine lines, acne scars and more? Have you been dreaming of silky, youthful looking skin?
Microneedling, the non-surgical, revolutionary anti-aging treatment may present the solution you seek. This quick, virtually painless procedure will leave you with smoother, firmer, and younger-looking skin. Timeframes and individual results may vary from patient to patient.
What Is Microneedling?
At Santa Fe Vein & Med Spa, we offer microneedling using the Eclipse MicroPen™ Elite, a device which creates controlled micro-injuries to the skin triggering the generation of new cells and the production of collagen and elastin, while also strengthening the epidermis. Automated microneedling creates superficial micro-channels which can be used with topical gels, creams, and serums to improve the appearance of the skin. It can be used to treat all parts of the body, including the face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen, and back. Microneedling stimulates and draws on the self-repairing property of your skin, giving you a natural form of skin renewal and rejuvenation.
The Eclipse MicroPen® Elite
Skincare professionals around the world choose to use this revolutionary cordless dermal device. With its many advantages over previous anti-aging devices such as dermal needle rollers, it is a clear choice for many.
The Eclipse MicroPen® Elite is much safer than many other products such as dermal rollers. It delivers higher efficiency and superior results while maintaining a high level of safety for the patient and the provider. It has proved to be safe to use on most skin types, which means that almost everyone can enjoy its benefits.
The MicroPen’s high-speed motor delivers an efficient, yet quick experience. The rapid pen motion is more comfortable than other devices, with what patients describe as a mild sandpaper-like sensation. A bonus is that this treatment is customizable to each patient’s unique skin needs, delivering superior clinical results. The built-in safety and control features lead to consistent and predictable results to virtually every patient.
What Are the Benefits of Microneedling?
You will see a notable reduction in the appearance of your fine lines and wrinkles, along with improved skin tone and texture. Your skin will feel softer and look younger, with fewer signs of aging. Timeframes and individual results may vary from patient to patient. The Eclipse MicroPen™ Elite can help improve your skin texture and the appearance of hyperpigmentation, as well as addressing uneven skin tones, enlarged pores, acne scars, rosacea, traumatic scars, and stretch marks.
Individual Results May Vary.
Microneedling is effective in slowing the early signs of aging, as well as preventing new wrinkles and fine lines from developing. You will enjoy a youthful glow that you can’t get from home treatments or other cosmetic products.
What Should I Expect?
Before the procedure, a topical numbing cream desensitizes your skin. A sterile cartridge containing 12 points is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen™. Our Medical Aestheticians apply a thin layer of topical gel to your skin and select the appropriate pen setting based on the treatment plan and your unique needs. Then, in a single motion, the pen is gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding in one direction until it covers the entire treatment area.
This minimally invasive cosmetic procedure is virtually painless. While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating tip reduces discomfort while the applied hydrating gel also makes the treatment more comfortable. The procedure itself takes 30-60 minutes depending on the size of the area treated. Immediately after the treatment, there is often a bright redness to the skin. You will only need minimal downtime, and the total healing time depends on the settings used and the number of overlapping passes performed. On average, patients experience redness for approximately two days. Many patients heal entirely in as little as 24 hours. Timeframes and individual results may vary from patient to patient.
When Will I See Results?
Most patients notice an immediate "glow" to the skin. In most cases, visible changes to your skin develop over the course of several days and weeks. Results may continue to improve up to six months after treatment as collagen production continues. Some patients may only require a single session once per year to achieve optimal results. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photoaging, stretch marks, or acne scars, it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at six-week intervals. Timeframes and individual results may vary from patient to patient.
