Personal Enhancement Center - Plastic Surgery by Dr. Christopher P. Godek, MD

Micro-Needling

Micro-needling with the Eclipse MicroPen can help diminish the appearance of perceived skin blemishes and various signs of aging on both the face and body. Also referred to as collagen induction therapy, this innovative procedure is designed to stimulate the body’s natural healing process by aiding in the production of collagen and elastin within the skin. Using the Eclipse MicroPen, our experienced aesthetician can help reduce minor acne scarring, improve skin tone and texture, minimize enlarged pores, and facilitate medical grade skin care product absorption. Additionally, this procedure can be combined with other treatments, such as injectables and dermal fillers, to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.

The Micro-Needling Treatment

At the Personal Enhancement Center, micro-needling with the advanced Eclipse MicroPen can be performed on the face, neck, arms, hands, back, stomach, and legs. During the procedure, a topical Hyaluronic Acid (HA) will be applied to and absorbed by the skin as the Eclipse MicroPen is gently guided over the targeted treatment area. Once absorbed, this HA solution will penetrate deep into the skin and help to promote collagen and elastin production.

The micro-needling procedure typically takes approximately 30 minutes to complete, though this will often depend on the number of areas you wish to address. You should generally begin to notice subtle signs of improvement in the tone and texture of your skin a few days after treatment, and these results will often continue to improve in the following weeks as more collagen is produced. Ultimately, micro-needling with the Eclipse MicroPen can help you achieve smoother, more radiant-looking skin.
