In addition, the Eclipse MicroPen EVO™ can be used in conjunction with Hyaluronic Acid (HA), Vitamins, Peptides or Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to enhance the rejuvenation and revitalization effects from treatment synergistically. HA is a sugar compound naturally found in the body. It helps to boost hydration and youthful volume in the skin, to combat the signs of aging. PRP is derived from a small sample of your blood. The blood is spun in a specialized machine to create a nutrient-rich concentrate, which stimulates your skin’s natural healing processes and promotes healthy, youthful-looking skin. During the Eclipse MicroPen EVO™ microneedling process, tiny channels are created in the skin. These channels encourage the absorption of the compounds within the deeper skin layers, having a more pronounced effect. Our skin care specialists help you determine if one of these options is appropriate for your specific needs and desired results.
The Eclipse MicroPen EVO™ has been approved by the FDA for use in patients ages 22 years and older and is used by prescription only from a qualified healthcare provider. It is an excellent option for patients seeking an affordable and effective way to treat early acne scars and the signs of sun exposure and aging. If you have an active acne breakout or open wound or are prone to cold sores or other types of herpes simplex outbreaks, another kind of treatment might be a better option for you.
In addition, if you have sunburned skin in the area that will be treated, please get in touch with us before your appointment.
For 24 hours before your treatment, you will need to avoid sun exposure and use of topical products that contain retinol, vitamin A, or alpha hydroxy acids. Before your treatment, we may apply a numbing ointment for your comfort. We will customize the device settings to your specific skin thickness and treated area and then gently sweep the device across the treatment area. The whole treatment typically only takes about 30 minutes. After your treatment is complete, we will place a soothing gel on your face to help prevent your skin from becoming dried out.
You should expect some redness (similar to a sunburn) after treatment, and your skin may also experience some swelling, tightness, itching, peeling, dryness, roughness, tenderness, burning, or discomfort for a few days after your treatment. We will go over what to expect in detail before your treatment and over your aftercare instructions with you to ensure that you achieve the maximum benefits from the procedure with minimal downtime. That may include using a post-treatment skin care regimen designed to support your skin’s health after the procedure.
In general, excessive perspiration or strenuous exercise is not recommended for 72 hours after your treatment, and you should also avoid sun exposure.
Patients typically achieve the best results if they undergo a series of treatments – around three treatments spaced 30 days apart. We will consult with you to help you determine what your best treatment plan is based on your individual skin care needs and goals.
Acne scars don’t have to be a part of your life forever. With Eclipse MicroPen EVO™ microneedling, you can say goodbye to unwanted blemishes and experience overall skin rejuvenation at a more affordable price than many other types of treatments.
