Our “Refresh” Program naturally stimulates collagen production and is centered around the use of a micro pen for speedy results!
How does it work?
The MicroPen device works with the body’s natural immune response in a treatment called “percutaneous collagen induction therapy” (PCIT). The instrument’s tiny needles penetrate the epidermis and dermis (2 outer layers of skin) in a very controlled, precise manner. These micro-injuries to the skin stimulate the body to produce new collagen and elastin – the support system of healthy skin. As the treated area heals, smoother, more even, healthier-looking skin appears.
What does the MicroPen help?
Fine lines and moderate wrinkles
Scars from acne, surgery or injury
Uneven skin tone or texture
Premature aging from sun exposure
Actinic keratoses (thick or scaly patches; potentially pre-cancerous)
We can use the MicroPen™ to enhance the skin on the face, neck, décolletage, back, abdomen, arms, hands and legs.
What can I expect?
A sterile needle-tip containing 12 tiny micro-needles is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen. A thin layer of topical gel is applied to your skin. Next, in a single motion, the pen is gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered. Treatment time depends on the size of the treatment area and usually takes about 30-45 minutes.
Is there downtime after MicroPen treatments?
There is no downtime to recover from the procedure, but the treatment will result in redness that resembles a raspberry or scrape. The redness may take anywhere from 24 hours to 4 days to go away, but for most in gone within the day of treatment.
When can I expect to see results?
Visible improvements to the treated area begin to appear over 2 to 3 weeks. Continued improvement may continue for up to 6 months following treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
For optimal results, we usually perform 4 treatments in monthly intervals. More severe or advanced conditions, such as scars or deeper wrinkles, can require up to 8 sessions spaced anywhere from 2 to 6 weeks apart.
