Microneedling for Men
Micro-needling is a new innovation for the treatment of the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and the skin’s texture, tone and color. During this procedure, the Eclipse MicroPen® Elite is used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to aid in the production of collagen and elastin resulting in a thicker epidermis.
A sterile cartridge-tip containing 12 tiny micro-tips is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen® Elite.
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 feeling is similar to sandpaper being moved across the skin.
The procedure takes about 30 minutes.
Patients are red for 2-4 days. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several weeks. Results can continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment as collagen production continues. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart.
