What is Microneedling?
Microneedling 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 microneedling device on the market.
What are the benefits?
The benefits of microneedling can include a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, resulting in younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging.* Eclipse MicroPen® may also have a positive effect on the appearance of hyperpigmentation, 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 microneedling treatment
A sterile cartridge containing 12 ultra-fine needles is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen®. An anesthetic will be applied for your comfort before applying 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 microneedling 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.*
How many microneedling 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.
