Eclipse Micropen + PRP Non-Surgical Facelift
What is the Eclipse MicroPen™ ?
The Eclipse MicroPen™ is a handheld cordless device which uses Automated Micro-Needling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT) and is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for treating the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and improvement of the skin’s overall appearance.
During this procedure, numbing cream will be applied topically to treatment area and then tiny needles, used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to naturally produce collagen and elastin, will be used. The skin’s repair process results in improvement of the appearance of softer wrinkles, less scarring and improved skin tone. The Eclipse MicroPen™ is the most advanced medical-grade automated micro-needling device on the market.
What is PRP?
Your blood is composed mainly of plasma, white blood cells, red blood cells and platelets. Platelet-Rich-Plasma or PRP is a component found within your blood. While platelets are best known for their ability to aid in clotting, they also contain hundreds of proteins called Growth Factors which help to activate stem cells and tissue proliferation. PRP not only contains Growth Factors, but also consists of fibrin, fibronectin and vitronection- all of which are capable of enhancing cells adhesion and acting like a matrix for your connective tissue and skin. The platelets found within your blood are the fountain of youth.
What are the Benefits?
The benefits of micro-needling are a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. Eclipse Micropen™ also has a positive effect on hyper-pigmentation as well as on hypo-pigmentation, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks and generally creates a fresher appearance or glow to the skin.
After an initial consultation, you should expect 1 hour to 1.5 hours depending on your needs. There will be a simple blood draw in which your blood will be spun down in a centrifuge to obtain the PRP. After applying numbing cream to your face, the procedure can start.
What is the downtime?
Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin.
The total healing time depends on the depth of needles used and the number of overlapping passes performed. On average, patients are red up to 2 to 4 days. Some patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours.
When will I see the results?
Patients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several days and weeks. Results continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment as collagen production continues.
How many treatments will I need?
Some patients only require a single treatment, once per year to achieve optimal results. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 6 week intervals.
