Eclipse MicroPen Treatment in Washington DC
This treatment has zero downtime and skin looks bright and glowing afterwards.
There are several devices that can be used to perform microneedling including dermal rollers and automated microneedling devices like the Eclipse MicroPen.
Providers and patients often prefer an automated microneedling device for its precision, efficiency, and improved comfort.
What Is Microneedling?
Microneedling uses fine surgical grade needles to create small punctures in the skin’s surface. These micro-injuries initiate a wound-healing effect to stimulate collagen growth.
Who’s a Candidate for Microneedling With the Eclipse Micropen?
The Eclipse MicroPen has a very high safety-profile and can be used on most skin types.
Individuals with melasma, acne scars, and dull skin are all candidates for microneedling treatments.
How Is the Eclipse Micropen Different From Dermal Rollers?
The MicroPen is an automated and cordless microneedling device, while dermal rollers are manually operated. The MicroPen has a high-speed motor, and as a result, provides a faster and more comfortable treatment.
Additionally, the MicroPen has a variety of settings that allow patient customization and provide consistent clinical outcomes.
Does Microneedling Hurt?
Most patients find microneedling to be a fairly painless procedure. A topical anesthetic is typically applied for 20-30 minutes before treatment.
The provider will then glide the MicroPen over the patient’s face using various depths and speeds. Patients may experience a sandpaper sensation during the treatment, but do not feel any sharp pin pricks.
How Many Treatments Are Recommended?
It’s possible to see considerable tone and texture improvement after only one session. However, patients with hyperpigmentation or acne scarring often require 3 or more treatments, spaced a month apart.
Microneedling Patient Results
Within one-to-three days, patients note that their skin is softer, clearer, and more radiant.
Many report that their make-up application is smoother and that skincare products are better absorbed after microneedling.
