Eclipse Micropen® Elite

We all know that the natural aging process doesn’t discriminate against anyone, yet it can still be discouraging to see fine lines and wrinkles appear on our faces. The older we get, the less durable our skin becomes, and sun exposure, repeated muscle movements, stress, etc. can finally begin to take a toll on our skin. Though aging is inevitable, it can still be stalled with micro-needling using the Eclipse MicroPen® Elite, which we offer here at Ventura Institute of Dermatologic Arts. By tackling aging skin head-on, we are able to keep your skin looking youthful and prevent wrinkles from forming in the future.

At VIDA, we have a dedicated team of professionals who wish to provide you with safe, effective and high-quality care. We understand that each of our patients come from different walks of life, with a range of experiences that have impacted their skin in various ways. That’s why we only provide customizable treatment for your specific skin care needs. Using the latest in digital technology as well as the expertise of physician and surgeon, Dr. Karlsberg, we are able to perform cosmetic treatment that fits right into your lifestyle with minimal downtime. Micro-needling with the Eclipse MicroPen® Elite is just one example of how we can customize our procedures to your treatment plan, with adjustable settings that allow us to administer exactly what your skin needs to look and feel beautiful.

Restore Your Skin with the Eclipse MicroPen

The Eclipse MicroPen® Elite is a micro-needling device that is specifically designed to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as improve overall skin tone. It is one of the most effective treatments available for reversing the signs of aging and is used by skin care specialists across the globe. One of the biggest benefits to using the MicroPen Elite is that the device is completely automated, making your micro-needling procedure more efficient and precise. In just one treatment session, you can receive skin that has improved in texture, tone and color. Micro-needling is an excellent solution for reduction in acne scars, enlarged pores and stretch marks. Additionally, the MicroPen Elite provides nothing short of natural rejuvenation with subtle enhancements to your skin that help it look years younger.

When you receive micro-needling treatment with the MicroPen® Elite, you will notice that treatment takes less time than laser therapy or more traditional dermal needle rollers. This is because the MicroPen Elite uses a high-speed motor that allows your treatment to take a mere 30 minutes to complete. The MicroPen Elite also has a higher safety rating than many of its competitors, using only sterile and single-use surgical-grade cartridge tips. It is also safe for almost all skin types and can be used on multiple parts of the body including the face, neck, décolleté, hands, legs, abdomen, back and arms.

Skin Rejuvenation That Works with Your Body

Before your micro-needling procedure begins, Dr. Karlsberg or his Physician’s Assistant, Michele, will apply a topical hyaluronic acid gel to the treatment area that allows the MicroPen to easily glide over the skin’s surface. Depending on the extent of the damage to your skin, growth factor gel may be used instead, since it contains proteins that can aid in healing the skin. Each sterile tip from the MicroPen contains 12 tiny needles, which are placed against the skin and swept across the treatment area. The needles create small wounds within the skin, which induce your body’s natural healing process and stimulate collagen and elastin production. This process is known as Collagen Induction therapy (CIT), and these proteins are responsible for repairing damaged skin, which is precisely what they do after the MicroPen Elite has been applied. For up to six months, the collagen and elastin in your skin will work to replace dead skin cells and effectively reduce imperfections. In some cases, Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is used in conjunction with micro-needling to enhance results even further.

At VIDA, we apply a topical numbing cream before performing the micro-needling procedure, so it is virtually painless. Some patients say that afterward, their skin feels as if it has a sunburn or like a fine sandpaper has been rubbed on their face. Your skin may be sensitive to touch and feel constricted. Within a few hours, any discomfort should subside and the skin will be healed. Within a day or two, your skin will take on a vibrant glow and you may have a flushed appearance. Visible improvement to the skin will likely appear after several weeks and will continue to heal for up to six months. We recommend receiving micro-needling treatment regularly to maintain the youthful qualities that the MicroPen® Elite provides, and we can simply adjust the specifics of your treatment to accommodate the changes in your skin’s texture over time.
