Who says you have to grow old gracefully when you can fight it every step of the way! Let us help you harness the power of technology to fight back against lines, wrinkles, pigmentation problems, and other unwelcome signs of getting older. Automated microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy, or CIT) with the Eclipse MicroPen™ actually sparks your skin’s own healing capabilities in order to rebuild and restore your skin’s natural beauty and youthful glow.
Now offered by Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards at his private surgical practice and medical spa in Las Vegas, Nevada, the Eclipse MicroPen™ works by gently creating controlled micro-channels deep into the skin, stimulating your skin’s production of collagen and elastin. These micro-channels also facilitate the healing impact of topical gels, creams, and serums by enabling them to penetrate deeper and more thoroughly into the skin. This powerful process helps your skin overcome the natural aging process and heal itself for a healthier, younger-looking appearance!
Why choose microneedling with the Eclipse MicroPen™
The Eclipse MicroPen™ utilizes powerfully-advanced, medical-grade microneedling technology to stimulate and maximize your skin’s own natural wound-healing capabilities. This minimally-invasive rejuvenation treatment can be performed anywhere on the body, including the face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, and abdomen. It is ideal for patients who are concerned about the appearance of:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scars
- Stretch marks
Your customized Eclipse MicroPen™ treatment
Your Eclipse MicroPen™ treatment can be performed in the comfort and safety of our office, and usually requires only about 45 minutes! The treatment begins with the application of a topical hydrating gel that helps alleviate discomfort and maximizes the impact of the treatment. During the procedure, the MicroPen™ is pressed gently against the skin and moved across the treatment area while 12 sterile needle tips create micro-channels into the epidermis. Due to the remarkable speed of the reciprocating needle tip and the application of the topical hydrating gel, the procedure is more comfortable than many patients anticipate; most patients describe the sensation as similar to the feel of light sandpaper being moved across the skin.
The most common side effect of the Eclipse MicroPen™ treatment is a temporary red flush to the skin in the treatment area. Most of the redness should subside within about 12 hours, although some patients requiring more intensive treatments may find that the redness continues up to 4 days. Your skin’s fresh new glow should be visible immediately, and will continue to improve for up to six months as the natural collagen production increases. Most patients require about three to five treatments, spaced about a month apart, for optimal results.
