What is Micro-Needling?
A popular option for skin rejuvenation, micro-needling is a gentle solution for treating aging or damaged skin without irritation or healing time. Micro-needling can effectively improve multiple skin concerns, such as:
- Light wrinkles
- Fine lines
- Acne scarring
- Sun damage
- Rough patches of skin
- Texture and tone irregularities
- Stretch marks
At Tarola Plastic Surgery, we use the Eclipse MicroPen™, a handheld pen-like device with 12 tiny needles in a sterile tip. As the MicroPen™ is moved over treated areas, the needles create microscopic channels in the skin, stimulating the body’s natural healing response.
During the micro-needling process, the production of collagen and elastin are stimulated to add strength and structure to treated areas. This subtly and naturally enhances skin over time, allowing patients to immediately return to normal activities.
Micro-needling can effectively treat multiple parts of the body, including the:
What are the Benefits of Micro-Needling?
In addition to natural skin rejuvenation, micro-needling with the MicroPen™ has several benefits, such as:
- Quick treatments in 15-30 minutes that can easily fit into any busy schedule
- The needles are gently pressed against the skin painlessly and without any visible marks
- Real results that treat aging and damaged skin at a cellular level, unlike lotions and creams that can irritate skin and that may only contain small amounts of active ingredients
- There is no recovery time or major complications
Are There Any Side Effects?
After micro-needling, treated areas may appear slightly flushed akin to a sunburn. This is typical and depends on the setting used as well as the areas of the body that were treated. On average, redness lasts from two to four days.
When Will I See Results?
Some patients notice a visible glow to their skin immediately after treatment, but as new collagen and elastin are produced, the skin will continue to improve over the course of weeks and months, with some people experiencing improvements for up to six months.
