Eclipse MicroPen™ in New Jersey
Rejuvenate Your Skin with New Collagen
While fine lines, wrinkles, and scars might be evidence of the many wonderful years someone has spent on this planet, not everyone wants that evidence to show. The Eclipse MicroPen™ at New Jersey's Advanced Dermatology & Skin Care can help you write a new chapter for your face: one that features younger-looking, smoother, clearer skin.
The MicroPen™ encourages collagen to fill out areas where its loss is obvious, softening wrinkles while generating a healthy glow. The procedure is fast, safe, and easy, preferred by patients looking to revitalize and freshen up their appearance without surgery or significant downtime.
How Does the Eclipse MicroPen™ Work?
Simply put, the MicroPen™ creates a series of incredibly tiny punctures, known as micro-injuries, that stimulate the body to begin its own healing by producing vital components of healthy skin: collagen and elastin. As natural processes repair the microscopic injuries they also improve the surrounding skin. This is because collagen provides structure and volume, elastin provides flexibility and pliancy, and both work together to keep wrinkles at bay.
In addition to triggering self-healing, the microchannels the MicroPen™ creates serve as numerous openings that allow skin-nourishing supplements easy access to the skin's deeper layers, where they can exercise their own repairing and moisturizing abilities.
Eclipse MicroPen™ Details
A single MicroPen™ session is brief, typically lasting no more than half an hour. Your skin care professional will first apply a topical gel anesthetic to your skin, followed by a topical, which will allow the device to glide easily and minimize any potential discomfort.
After the treatment, your skin may be red for as little as 24 hours. The redness will resolve, revealing healthy-looking skin with a fresh glow. As collagen production increases in the following days and weeks, skin will appear tighter, and imperfections and wrinkles will become less visible. These improvements can continue for six months.
While you can opt for a single treatment, we recommend that patients consider a package of three treatments spaced one month apart to ensure optimal benefits.
Additional treatments at shorter intervals may be necessary for patients seeking a reduction in, deep wrinkles, stretch marks, and certain types of photo damage. Our skin care team can recommend a customized treatment plan based on your current look and your aesthetic needs.
More Facial Rejuvenation Choices
While the Eclipse MicroPen™ effectively reduces wrinkles, there are also other options at Advanced Dermatology & Skin Care.
BOTOX® Cosmetic temporarily prevents wrinkles that form on the forehead and next to the eyes due to muscle contractions there. Facial fillers such as Juvéderm®, Voluma®, and Restylane® Silk use hyaluronic acid to create smooth skin for months to years at a time. Fraxel® can be used to address brown spots, facial wrinkles, and scars.
