Newport Beach Dermatologist Introduces Innovative Non-Surgical Rejuvenation Method
Dr. Nancy L. Silverberg debuts the Eclipse MicroPen™ Elite and Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP), a state-of-the-art technique designed to reduce common signs of aging and improve skin tone and texture.
Newport Beach, CA—The body has the ability to self-correct a number of conditions for which patients seek out cosmetic treatment, reveals Dr. Nancy Silverberg, a dermatologist in Newport Beach. She explains that collagen, elastin, and other growth factors, which are naturally present in the body, can be used to refresh the skin’s surface, helping to diminish the appearance of fine lines, acne scars, uneven skin tone and texture, and stretch marks. If the body can be stimulated into producing more of these substances, she suggests that the result typically will be smoother, more youthful-looking skin in the treated area. She explains that there are two state-of-the-art options now available that are excellent methods of achieving this goal: Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP) Therapy and The Eclipse MicroPen™ Elite. Manufactured by Eclipse Aesthetics, the MicroPen™ is designed to promote collagen and elastin production through a technique called micro-needling or Percutaneous Collagen Induction Therapy (PCIT). Dr. Silverberg says she is proud to offer both of these leading technologies at her dermatology practice.
PRP Therapy involves drawing a small volume of the patient’s blood and extracting the beneficial platelet-rich-plasma from the fluid, Dr Silverberg explains. The essential growth factors found within this substance can help to generate rejuvenating proteins when re-administered to the areas of concern, she continues. In contrast, she says, the MicroPen™ utilizes 12 sterile, single-use micro-needles to create minuscule perforations in the surface of the skin. She indicates that the created micro-channels serve a dual purpose: First, they stimulate the body’s natural repair system, which typically produces collagen during the healing process. Secondly, she adds, the micro-injuries make the skin more absorbent, helping to increase the efficacy of any professional skincare products applied immediately following the procedure. She goes on to say that one of the chief benefits of the MicroPen™ is the precise control the physician can maintain while administering treatment. The handheld device is approximately the size of a large ballpoint pen, the Newport Beach dermatologist indicates, and therefore patients can have specific areas of concern addressed, often with only three treatments–delivered over three months–necessary to achieve the desired outcome. Side effects typically will be minimal as well, she notes. Individuals can expect redness in the treated area for a few days, and she says benefits will gradually develop over a period of days and weeks.
Ultimately, Dr. Silverberg believes PRP Therapy and the Eclipse MicroPen™ Elite offer patients innovative new ways to address common signs of aging as well as uneven skin tone and texture concerns without having to undergo invasive surgical procedures. She states that the minimal downtime, natural-looking results, and precision control make the MicroPen™ in particular an excellent method of facial and body rejuvenation for a wide range of people.
