Micropen Elite Facial Q&A
What is the MicroPen Elite facial?
The Eclipse MicroPen Elite is a state-of-the-art, medical-grade automated microneedling device that treats a wide range of skin conditions, such as facial acne scars and blemishes. This innovative hand-held tool allows the team at A to Z Dermatology to customize your microneedling treatment for your exact skin type and concerns.
What are the benefits of a MicroPen Elite facial?
Because the Eclipse MicroPen Elite is customizable, it can produce an array of aesthetic improvements, including:
- Skin revitalization
- Reduced appearance of acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles
- Increased collagen production and skin elasticity
- Enhanced skin texture, tone, and color
- Reduced appearance of new and old stretch marks
A MicroPen Elite facial also helps your skin absorb topical treatments, such as serums, gels, and creams.
How does the Eclipse MicroPen Elite work?
The Eclipse MicroPen Elite is appropriate for all parts of your body, including the face, neck, decollete, backs of your hands, arms, legs, and back. The patented device contains a sterile cartridge with 12 stainless steel needles that penetrate the top layer of your skin.
Microneedling is a cosmetic treatment that involves making controlled micro-injuries to your skin’s surface. These micro-injuries trigger your skin’s natural repair process, increasing the production of collagen and elastin without causing damage.
The team at A to Z Dermatology adjusts the needles on the MicroPen to the exact depth needed to treat your unique skin type and condition. Using robotic precision, the MicroPen Elite can go as deep as 2.0 mm at 0.1 mm increments.
What should I expect from a MicroPen Elite facial?
First, the A to Z Dermatology team discusses your skin concerns and aesthetic goals to make sure the MicroPen Elite facial is the most appropriate treatment for you. If not, they may recommend another cosmetic dermatology treatment, such as an IPL photofacial or chemical peels.
Depending on the size of the treatment area, a MicroPen Elite facial can take as little as 15-30 minutes. Afterward, you notice an immediate glow to your skin. Visible changes continue to appear as your skin produces more collagen and elastin for several days and weeks.
