Micro-needling is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that stimulates collagen production, improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars. Micro-needling allows for controlled stimulation of the skin’s self-repair process by creating precise, micro-injuries in the skin, which automatically trigger new collagen synthesis without causing scar tissue formation. The micro-injuries also create channels that allow product to penetrate deeper into the skin resulting in better product efficacy.
Do you have problems with scars on your skin? If you would like to improve the appearance of those scars, we can use scar treatments with micro-needling to target those areas.
Description: Micro-needling along with LED red/blue light treatment can reduce the appearance of stretchmarks. This combination therapy is also great for reducing the appearance of scars and age spots.

The Eclipse MicroPen uses a sterile needle-tip containing 12 tiny micro-needles to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin. This initiates the skin’s repair process to naturally produce collagen and elastin, ideal for smoothing fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, traumatic scars, and stretch marks. Micro-channels created by the treatment allow for optimal absorption of topical products and combination treatments, enhancing their effects in the deeper layers of skin.Go To Top
Micro-Needling feels similar to sandpaper being moved across the skin. Topical numbing may be applied prior to your procedure, but no anesthesia or medications are necessary.Go To Top
The skin will be red and flushed, similar to a mild to moderate sunburn, for 12 hours to 3 days. You may also experience mild swelling, tightness, and/or mild peeling. Side effects are temporary and typically resolve within 3 days. Total healing time depends on the depth of the treatment, skin type, and skin condition, and some patients may heal completely in 24 hours.Go To Top
Patients typically notice an immediate glow, but visible improvement will take about 2-4 weeks and can continue for up to 6 months.Go To Top
A series of 3-6 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart is ideal for optimal results. Some conditions like deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks, and acne scars may need 6-8 treatments.Go To Top
