Microneedling is an outstanding solution for the treatment of wrinkles, fine lines, acne scarring, stretch marks, wound healing stimulation, skin tightening, lifting and rejuvenation. Skin rejuvenation can be approached through the application of chemical peels, thermal injury with lasers, or micro-needling. Of the various options, micro-needling is the only treatment that is safe for all skin types and skin colors, and offers the most minimal down-time. At New Life Aesthetics, we offer the award-winning Eclipse Micropen Elite® advanced skin rejuvenation needling device.
The Micropen® is an automated microneedling system with a disposable tip cartridge that uses 12 micro-needles to vertically stamp the skin at high speed. The stamping action of the tip creates micro-injuries to the skin, stimulating new collagen production. In doing so, these micro-injuries encourage and harness the body’s innate ability to regrow and repair the skin through normal physiological processes. Though benefits can be seen after just one session, it is recommended that 3-6 sessions, spaced about 4-6 weeks apart are performed for maximum results.
For Meredith, guest comfort is a priority. A topical numbing agent will be applied to the skin and allowed to penetrate in the office for approximately 30 minutes. Once the skin is numb, it will be cleansed and prepared for treatment. Meredith will select an appropriate pharmaceutical skin product, or your own platelet rich plasma, to apply topically during the treatment. This product will serve multiple purposes of soothing, hydrating and encouraging production of collagen as tiny channels are created in the skin during treatment. Treatment time averages 20 minutes. Once treatment is complete, the skin will appear as though it has been sunburned. This redness will persist for 24-48 hours for most guests.
