MicroNeedling Philadelphia

What is MicroNeedling?

Micro-needling is an innovation in aesthetics for the treatment of the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and the skin’s texture, tone and color through a process called Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT). A device with fine needles creates tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin, which triggers the body to create new collagen and elastin.* At KP Aesthetics, we have chosen the Eclipse MicroPen® which is the most advanced medical-grade automated micro-needling device on the market.

*Individual results may vary.

What are the benefits?

The benefits of micro-needling can include a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging.* Eclipse MicroPen® may also has a positive effect on the appearance of hyper-pigmentation, hypo-pigmentation, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks and generally can create a fresher appearance or glow to the skin.*

What to expect during the treatment

A sterile cartridge containing 12 points is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen®. An anesthetic will be applied of your comfort and then we will apply a either a thin layer of Hyaluronic Acid or your own plasma to your skin and select the appropriate pen setting based on your unique needs. Next, in a single motion, the pen will be gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered. The procedure takes 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the area treated.

What to expect after the treatment

Immediately after the treatment most patients notice a bright redness to the skin. The total healing time depends on the Eclipse MicroPen® setting used and the number of overlapping passes your skincare professional performs.

Most patients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin.* Visible changes to the skin usually develop over the course of several days and weeks.*

*Individual results may vary.

How many treatments will be needed?

Some patients only require a single treatment once per year to achieve optimal results.* However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 6-week intervals. You will be provided with your specific plan according to your skincare needs during your consultation with KP Aesthetics.*

What is MicroNeedling with PRP?

PRP, or Platelet Rich Plasma, can be used with the Eclipse MicroPen® system. Often referred to as the “Vampire Facial,” it is a procedure that involves withdrawing a patient’s blood, processing it to isolate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP), then re-injecting it to erase wrinkles and can create a more youthful look.* This procedure yields very low risk considering the patient is using their own, natural growth factors instead of a chemical compound.
