Our face, and the appearance of our skin, can be the most important thing we show the world, but the appearance of fine lines or acne scars can make us self-conscious about what others might think.
For some, topical treatments can show positive results, but a new procedure known as micro-needling can make a truly noticeable difference for patients. The procedure uses a special tool known as the Eclipse Micropen™ to harness the body’s own healing properties, resulting in dramatic, positive results.
What is Micro-Needling?
As the Micropen moves across your skin, 12 micro-needles make microscopic “injuries” to the epidermis, causing the skin to build new collagen and elastin. The result is a new complexion with a tighter, smoother appearance.
Micro-Needling can be used to accomplish the following goals:
- Reducing wrinkles
- Improving texture and tone
- Improving pigmentation
- Softening the appearance of scars
What is PRP?
PRP, also known as Platelet Rich Plasma, can be used along with micro-needling to help your skin appear the best it possibly can. After your micro-needling procedure, Platelet Rich Plasma is applied directly to the skin, promoting the body’s own healing process.
Where does PRP come from?
Platelet Rich Plasma comes from your own body, ensuring the treatment is both safe and optimal for your specific needs.
