Eclipse MicroPen: Effective skin rejuvenation treatment available in Mississauga, ON
Would you like to have softer, smoother skin with refined texture and even tone? Then you will be interested in Eclipse MicroPen treatment at Dermcare in Mississauga, ON. Dr. Faisal Al-Mohammedi recommends this service for patients who want to revitalize their complexions without extensive downtime.
A microneedling device creates a multitude of microscopic columns in skin using hair-fine needles to penetrate to a carefully-controlled depth. Treatment triggers the repair processes that tighten and improve the condition of the skin. Microneedling is sometimes called collagen induction therapy because it stimulates natural production of this fibrous protein, essential to healthy skin.
While it may sound invasive, microneedling is a gentle, safe procedure. Because it is non-ablative (does not remove top layers of skin as laser resurfacing does), downtime is minimal. Skin is typically pink for up to 24 hours, but there is little risk of other side effects. You may return to normal activities right after treatment, and wear makeup in a day or two.
How Eclipse MicroPen treatment is different
In the past, dermal rollers were typically used for microneedling. The MicroPen applicator is controlled by a high-speed motor, so it glides over skin. Its needles enter vertically (rather than at an angle) for more precise treatment, customized to the patient’s needs.
Dr. Al-Mohammedi recommends MicroPen treatment for improvement in the appearance of:
- Fine lines
- Acne scarring
- Rough skin texture
- Pigmentation irregularities
- Dull complexion
Why Mississauga, ON patients choose Eclipse MicroPen treatment
MicroPen treatment is safe for all skin types and tones. It can be used on nearly any area of the body, including the face, neck, chest, back, abdomen, arms, hands, and legs.
The procedure is efficient – a half hour or less, depending on the area treated. Most patients describe the feeling as a mild sandpaper sensation. Skin has an immediate glow, and noticeable change occurs over several weeks as collagen builds. Improvement continues for a few more months. You may be satisfied with results after just one session or opt for a series of treatments spaced six to eight weeks apart.Back to Eclipse Micropen Page
