Introducing Our Latest Anti-Aging and Rejuvenation Treatment: The Eclipse MicroPen™ Elite
Approximately the size and shape of a large ballpoint pen, the latest technological advancement in facial and body rejuvenation is diminutive in size but often powerful in effect. Dr. Nancy Silverberg along with the entire medical team at Silverberg Surgical & Medical Group is proud to introduce the Eclipse MicroPen™ Elite. The Eclipse MicroPen™is designed to even skin tone and texture, reduce fine lines, acne scars, and stretch marks, and enhance the skin’s ability to absorb professional skincare products, especially SkinMedica® TNS Essential Serum, all with natural-looking results. If you’re considering a non-surgical aesthetic treatment, this speedy and exciting new procedure may be right for you.
What makes the MicroPen™ unique is the highly customizable nature of the instrument. Using a technique called Percutaneous Collagen Induction Therapy (PCIT), also called micro-needling, this handheld device creates thousands of tiny perforations in the skin with 12 single-use micro-needles. The micro-injuries are minuscule and barely break the skin’s surface, and most patients report the treatment feels similar to having light sandpaper brush the skin. However, this method typically results in the body responding by producing collagen and elastin, both of which help to firm, smooth, and rejuvenate the skin, even increasing the vibrancy of the complexion. Some effects will be immediately apparent, such as enhanced radiance of the skin, while other benefits will gradually develop over the course of several days and weeks.
While patients should expect to see redness or pinpoint bruising in the treated area, this effect should fade within a few days to a week. The Eclipse MicroPen™ can be used on the face, neck, and body, and we recommend a series of three treatments over the course of three months to optimize the outcome, in combination with a three-month course of SkinMedica® TNS. Additionally, the MicroPen™ method can be combined with our Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP) Therapy for more comprehensive facial and body rejuvenation. PRP is designed to reintroduce essential growth factors within the skin for a younger, more radiant appearance. During the initial consultation, Dr. Silverberg will develop a customized treatment plan that addresses each person’s unique needs and goals.
