Micro-Needling Therapy With or Without Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
This treatment involves using the latest micro-needling technology, the Skin Pen® a pen-like medical device and a 12 microneedle sterile cartridge. The application will create several micro-channels into the skin surface, varying from 0.1-2 mm in depth, to promote new collagen formation, scaring breakdown and cell proliferation. This cell multiplication process results in the formation of new tissue layers of elastin and collagen fibers as well as in new capillaries for improved blood supply. The treatment is performed in conjunction with the topical application of Hyaluronic Acid and EGF-DNA Epidermal Growth Factor.
As a hyaluronic acid-based complex, this phenomenally effective concentrate retains 1000 times its own volume in moisture. The deeply penetrating, intense hydration protects fragile skin from the environmental pollutants that cause pre-mature aging while smoothing existing fine lines and wrinkles. EGF-DNA is a scientifically formulated cosmetic miracle concentrate that turns back the clock. Enriched with a human-like epidermal growth factor, it repairs skin tissue and stimulates the skin's own cell renewal properties for firmer, healthier-looking skin. Highly effective when used pre and post-micro-peel and laser procedures to maximize skin recovery. This treatment is concluded by the application of the Le Mieux Bio-Cell Mask. Le Mieux Bio Cell + Mask is the most innovative of its kind in the skincare market. Made of highly specialized Freeze Dried Marine Collagen Mask, it incorporates wound care technology for healing and soothing while dramatically reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. In just 15-20 minutes, see amazing results that you thought could never be possible from a mask. Without a single doctor's visit, without a single injection, your skin will look incredibly brighter, firmer, and smooth.
Activating 8 Growth Factors: Platelet-rich plasma is similar to HA fillers because it can be injected to sculpt the face. Here is the best part: not only does the PRP cause an increase in the volume, but PRP also contains at least 8 growth factors that will over a long period of time, continually work like a rejuvenating agent. By activating these growth factors, all 3 parts of the aging process improve:
Using our latest micro-needling device in conjunction with patient derived platelet rich plasma was demonstrated in many research studies to activate hair growth. This micro needling stimulation causes microtrauma to the dermis that induces other healing and growth repair cells into action. The highly concentrated platelet rich plasma (PRP) is then topically applied into the scalp.
The PRP contains many growth factors that stimulate the hair follicle's growth. Some patient's chose to have PRP performed every three (3) to four (4) months as early data suggests regular or semiannual PRP treatments can stimulate hair growth.
Eclipse Micropen™ can be used on all parts of the body; Face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.
A sterile needle-tip containing 12 tiny micro-needles is attached to the Eclipse Micropen™. Your skincare professional will apply a thin layer of topical gel to your skin and select the appropriate treatment depth based on your unique needs. Next, in a single motion, the pen will be gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered.
The feeling associated with the Eclipse Micropen™ is similar to light sandpaper being moved across the skin. While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating needle tip reduces discomfort while the applied hydrating gel also makes the treatment more tolerable.
The procedure takes 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the area treated.
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 your skincare professional performs. On average, patients are red up to 2 to 4 days. Some patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours. Utilizing the Eclipse Skin Revive System™, or other quality skincare products, provided by your skincare provider, can help to speed up the healing process.
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.
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.
