Micro-Needling with Eclipse Micropen Elite
Balcones Dermatology and Aesthetics offers automated micro-needling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT), which is an FDA approved treatment, safe for all skin types. It may help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkling, acne scars, traumatic scars, stretch marks and dark spots, including stubborn melasma.
Micro-needling creates micro injuries and channels in the skin. The Eclipse Micropen Elite uses a disposable cartridge containing 12 sterile micro needles attached to the end of a battery-operated pen. In the healing response, the skin will break down dark spots and also create new collagen growth to improve the tone and texture of the skin with little downtime. To increase the effectiveness of the treatment, certain serums can be applied prior to the procedure. Solutions used include: hyaluronic acid, a growth factor serum, and for maximum results platelet rich plasma (PRP). PRP Micro-needling is a favorite treatment of the Balcones Dermatology and Aesthetics team as results warrant rave reviews from highly satisfied patients.
