FAQs About the Eclipse MicroPen Elite

acne scar treatment dallasThe Eclipse MicroPen Elite is an innovative anti-aging treatment available at some state-of-the-art medical spas. This medical-grade micro-needling device can produce dramatic improvements in common problem areas of the skin. If you’re dissatisfied with signs of aging or skin damage, you can talk to a medical spa provider to find out if the Eclipse MicroPen treatment is right for you.

What can it do?
Micro-needling is a safe, effective way to rejuvenate the skin and support a youthful appearance. The Eclipse MicroPen Elite is capable of improving these areas:

  • Skin texture
  • Skin softness
  • Skin tone

Micro-needling can reduce the appearance of the following cosmetic concerns.

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Stretch marks
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Acne scars
  • Traumatic scars

How does it work?
Micro-needling is non-surgical, non-ablative therapy that creates very tiny “channels” in the skin with the use of fine needles. This precisely controlled process triggers the production of collagen and elastin, and new capillaries. The increased production of these essential ingredients for skin health is responsible for the dramatic benefits of the Eclipse MicroPen Elite.

Where can it be used?
Micro-needling is often performed on the face, since the signs of aging here are usually the most bothersome for individuals. But it’s actually safe to use virtually anywhere. Your provider could use it on your:

  • Back
  • Abdomen
  • Legs
  • Arms
  • Hands
  • Décolletage
  • Neck

What will the treatment feel like?
Treatment with the Eclipse MicroPen is well-tolerated. The provider applies a hydrating gel to the area to improve comfort level. It’s normal to feel a mild prickling or scraping sensation during the treatment. This will resolve quickly, as most treatment sessions are only about 30 to 45 minutes long.

Is there any downtime required?
There aren’t any activity restrictions, but you might want to stay at home for a day anyway. This is because the treated areas of skin will turn red. Sometimes, redness resolves in just 24 hours.

How the Sun Ages Your Skin (And What You Can Do About It)

sun damage dallas

Life on Earth needs the sun for survival, but sunlight also inflicts unwelcome health and cosmetic problems. In addition to causing damage that can turn into skin cancer, the sun’s rays result in premature aging of the skin. There are ways of treating sun-inflicted skin damage, such as with IPL photofacials, but prevention is always preferable. Taking good care of your skin at every stage in life will allow you to enjoy your youthful appearance longer.

How Sun Damage Occurs
When your skin isn’t protected from the sun, the ultraviolet (UV) light penetrates the skin and triggers the formation of free radicals. These unstable molecules steal electrons from other molecules, and in doing so, trigger a chain reaction that inflicts skin damage. For example, when free radicals affect your skin’s collagen, you become more susceptible to wrinkles and sagging skin. When free radicals assault the lipids, your skin can become dry and irritated. And when your skin’s DNA is affected by free radicals, the result can be hyperpigmentation, age spots, and cell mutations that lead to skin cancer.

How to Prevent Sun Damage
The best way to protect yourself is to avoid spending long periods of time outdoors. Consider having your car and home windows tinted with film that blocks UV rays. When you do leave home, apply sunscreen 30 minutes beforehand, and reapply it every two hours. Sunscreen is necessary regardless of the weather and time of year.

How to Treat Sun Damage
Although your skin health is dependent upon limiting sun exposure and using sunscreen, it’s inevitable that some sun damage will occur. If you do notice any abnormalities that might be indicative of skin cancer, you should immediately be examined by a dermatologist. Otherwise, a medical spa can treat your sun damage. An IPL photofacial is a good option. It treats sun damage, discoloration, age spots, and even broken capillaries all at once. Chemical peels can also address sun damage.

At EpiCentre, you’ll find an array of products that can protect your skin from environmental hazards. We are a leading provider of professional-grade skin care for Dallas-area residents. Call (214) 887-1577, if you’d like to consult with one of our skin care specialists about our treatments, including IPL photofacials and chemical peels.
