SkinPen Microneedling with Eclipse MicroPen®

A device with fine needles creates tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin. This triggers the body to create new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, stronger skin. * Although there are different types of microneedling pens, At KP Aesthetics, we have chosen the Eclipse MicroPen®. This is the most advanced medical-grade automated microneedling device on the market. It uses a process called Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) to stimulate natural collagen production.

RF Microneedling with Vivace™ Vs. Morpheus8

As an exciting innovation, RF microneedling combines basic microneedling technology with the skin-tightening benefits of radiofrequency to produce immediate results with no pain and no downtime. By stimulating collagen growth, this minimally invasive, FDA-approved treatment tightens and tones, smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines.

Both Vivace and Morpheus8 are non-invasive, safe procedures that cause no significant discomfort. A topical numbing cream is applied to the treatment areas. Then, your healthcare provider will use a microneedling machine to deliver radiofrequency energy throughout the skin. Each Microneedling techniques use the same RF technology, but for different reasons.

Vivace Treatment

Vivace goes as deep as 3.5 millimeters and is the next generation in professional microneedling thinner skin around the face, neck, and hands.

The Vivace technique also uses LED light to soothe inflammation and keep you comfortable as it transforms the appearance of your skin. That means it combines three technologies in one device. These technologies promote the skin’s natural healing process to address many concerns. With Vivace, recovery is immediate, so you can receive treatment, then head out on a dinner date looking years younger!

Morpheus8 Treatment

Morpheus8 goes deeper, providing more treatment depth to target the face, neck, and body, including thicker skin when necessary.

Treatments take about 40 minutes and help improve the appearance of:

  •  Excess face and neck fat
  •  Uneven skin tone
  •  Rough skin texture
  •  Mild sagging in the face and neck
  •  Large pores
  •  Stretch marks
  •  Deep lines and creases
  •  Scarring
  •  Sun damage

Morpheu8 can target all of your skincare concerns at one time by resurfacing the skin and promoting collagen production. Since it reaches deeper into the skin, changes happen on a cellular level.

What to Expect During Your Microneedling Session

A sterile cartridge containing 12 ultra-fine needles is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen®. An anesthetic will be applied for your comfort. Then you will receive either a thin layer of Hyaluronic Acid to your skin or the appropriate pen setting based on your unique needs.

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 Your 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.

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.

Vivace Microneedling Vs. At Home Microneedling

With all the goodness that comes with professional microneedling, it’s no wonder people want to recreate their spa experiences at home. There are many hand-held devices available that perform similarly, with a mini wheel covered in small needles. However, these needles are significantly shorter than the ones you will experience in a clinic. While that means you can use them more often, it also means that the results won’t be as profound. At home microneedling essentially offers light exfoliation and increases blood flow.

With that being said, you must take great care to sanitize the device if you are going to DIY. Bacterial complications can happen, and you might wind up worsening the state of your skin by accident.

Microneedling FAQs

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.*

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

Each microneedling session offers different results. This means that your results depend on the severity of the skin concern, the treatment location, and the number of sessions you attend. However, it’s common for patients to notice improved collagen production up to six months after treatment.

Some patients might need some time to heal, depending on how deep the needles penetrate. There might be some temporary redness and minor pain, peeling, or bruising after a microneedling session. Besides that, it’s a matter of having patience while waiting for full results to show, which can sometimes be several weeks.
