Micro-needling

Micro-needling with the Eclipse MicroPen Elite is the latest wave in skin rejuvenation and scar treatment, based on the concept of collagen induction therapy.

Elite-How it works

Micro-needling with the Eclipse MicroPen™ Elite is the latest wave in skin rejuvenation and scar treatment, based on the concept of collagen induction therapy. As the MicroPen™ is applied to the skin, hundreds of superficial micro-channels are created every few seconds. Collagen induction therapy refers to the process whereby microscopic needle puncture wounds stimulate the body’s natural healing response to produce new collagen and skin. The growth of new collagen and elastin fibers results in a smoother-looking, revived appearance to your face and body.

The procedure

The procedure can take anywhere from 5-20 minutes, depending on the treatment area (face, neck, etc.) The depth of the needle, and thus how strong the treatment will be, is customized to each patient individually. As the device is swept across the skin, a hydrating hyaluronic acid gel is gently massages into the treatment area. This soothing product helps the MicroPen™ glide across the skin and aids in skin recovery. A topical anesthetic cream is available if necessary before the treatment however micro-needling treatments are very well tolerated and generally no anesthetic is needed.

Downtime

You may be red for several hours after the procedure, and a small amount of pinpoint bleeding may occur. These effects are temporary. You may return to work the next day.

Results

Improvement in texture, fine lines, pores, scarring and hair loss has been observed with micro-needling treatments. For maximal results, it is recommended that 3-4 treatments be performed, at least three weeks apart. Results may be seen after one treatment.

Introducing ThermiRF, the Science of Heat!

We now offer ThermiTight, the most advance radiofrequency technology in aesthetic dermatology.

How it works

ThermiTight by ThermiRF uses thermistor-regulated radiofrequency energy to tighten skin and melt unwanted fat. In simple terms, heat is generated by radio waves and used to target and tighten specific areas of skin and tissue. A special camera is used during the procedure to help the doctor position the probe precisely and monitor the skin response.

The procedure

The procedure is performed under local anesthesia in the office.  After the skin is anesthetized, a probe containing a heated tip is inserted under the skin in a very precise manner, while the temperature is monitored in real-time using an infrared camera.  Your physician will monitor the skin temperature to ensure that it reaches the desired endpoint for maximal improvement and to ensure that your treatment is safe.

Am I a good candidate?

Are you unhappy with how your neck looks in pictures?  Have you recently lost weight and are bothered by “extra skin?”

The ideal ThermiTight patient has mild to moderate skin laxity or excess unwanted fat pockets and desires a tighter, more defined contour.  ThermiTight is an excellent treatment for loose skin in the lower face, jowls, chin, neck, arms, and abdomen, however it can be used to treat many other regions.  If you are unsatisfied with current noninvasive approaches and looking for something new, or if you are contemplating—but hesitant about—surgery, then ThermiTight may be right for you!

Downtime

Typically several days of swelling may be experienced.  You may go back to work within 1-2 days.

Results

While results are gradual, there may be an instant off-the-table improvement.  The three month mark is the WOW moment.
