Micro-Needling / Anti-Aging Skin Pen Treatment
Eclipse Microneedling: $350
The Skin Pen is an innovation in aesthetics for the treatment of fine lines, acne scars and the skin’s texture, tone and color by breaking up pigment mechanically and stimulating collagen formation without heat or the need for lasers. Removing heat from the equation also makes for a safer, more comfortable skin resurfacing treatment with a very low complication rate and less downtime. The Eclipse Micropen can be used on all parts of the body; face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back and is performed using a sterile single-use cartridge tip containing 12 points attached to the pen. A topical numbing cream may be applied to your skin prior to starting the procedure to ensure patient comfort along with sterile saline. Once the appropriate pen setting has been obtained for that individual, the pen will glide in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered.
The procedure can take anywhere from 15-45 minutes depending on the size of the area treated and the number of passes. Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin.
