Give Fine Lines and Wrinkles The Boot!
Time marches on… and fine lines and wrinkles are often the first signs your face shows of that relentless march. The repeated movement of your facial muscles and exposure to the sun’s harmful rays are the main contributing factors for aging skin. If you smoke, are under stress, and have a fair complexion, you are exposing yourself to additional contributing factors.
It’s true: Everyone has to confront the fact that fine lines wrinkles are inevitable.
The newest innovation in the treatment of fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars is Automated Micro-Needling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT).
Dr. Ali uses the Eclipse MicroPen® to control micro-injures to the skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines and aid in the production of collagen and elastin. Eclipse MicroPen® can also improve the appearance of hyper-pigmentation, uneven skin tone, traumatic scars and stretch marks and improves the skin’s texture, tone and color.
In micro-needling, micro-channels are created which allow topical creams, gels and serums to be absorbed more effectively, enhancing their effect on the deeper layers of the skin. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker epidermis and a softer appearance of wrinkles.
Eclipse MicroPen® can be used on all parts of the body: face, neck, arms, hands, legs, abdomen, décolleté, and back.
How is it done?
- A sterile cartridge containing 12 tiny micro-needles is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen®.
- Dr. Ali then applies a thin layer of topical gel to your skin and selects the appropriate pen position based on your needs.
- In a single motion, the pen is gently pressed against your skin while gliding in one direction until the entire area to be treated is covered.
How does it feel?
The feeling associated with the Eclipse MicroPen® is similar to sandpaper being moved across the skin. Some areas may be more sensitive than others, however, the speed of the Eclipse MicroPen® tip makes the treatment more comfortable.
What is the downtime?
Immediately following treatment, you will notice a bright redness to your skin. The total healing time depends on the number of passes the MicroPen makes over your skin. You may be red for two to four days, but some patients heal completely in 24 hours.
The visible changes to your skin will develop over several weeks and results can continue to improve for up to six months following treatment.
What’s the bottom line?
Eclipse MicroPen® is affordable, effective, safe for all skin types and provides natural results with minimal discomfort and downtime.
