If you’re a busy person who has many responsibilities and obligations, your stressful life might cause you to develop dark circles under your eyes. Your complexion might also appear to be dull and uneven. These imperfections can make you look constantly tired and upset. At Guelph Medical Laser in Guelph, Ontario, we can improve the appearance of your skin with Eclipse MicroPen. Read on to learn more about this wonderful cosmetic treatment.
Can MicroPen Remove Dark Circles Under the Eyes?
If you have a difficult job or lots of responsibilities at home, you may have dark circles under your eyes. Although these circles usually aren’t harmful, they can make you look older and less attractive than you actually are. Fortunately, fixing this issue is easier than ever before. Eclipse MicroPen can improve your dark circles in a quick, minimally invasive manner.
MicroPen uses a sophisticated microneedling technique to enhance your skin. During your treatment, we will gently move the device over your dark circles. The device will make tiny channels in your treatment area. After your appointment is complete, your body will repair these micro-channels using natural processes. Repairing these injuries can improve your skin’s overall appearance. As your body refreshes and renews itself, the skin under your eyes should appear to be firmer and more vibrant. As a result, you will look more rested and attractive after you receive this treatment.
Can This Treatment Address Other Skin Issues?
In addition to improving the appearance of dark circles under your eyes, this sophisticated microneedling treatment can address many other skin issues and imperfections. This innovative treatment is excellent at minimizing the negative signs of age.
For instance, this treatment is an excellent way to reduce the appearance of your fine lines and wrinkles. This treatment can improve the appearance of dull skin and dark spots. It may also minimize the prominence of stretch marks and acne scars.
How Does This Treatment Work?
This treatment uses your body’s healing power to renew and refresh your skin. This innovative device has a sterilized tip that holds twelve microneedles. During your appointment, these microneedles will make very small punctures in your treatment area. Since these injuries are very small, they are not uncomfortable or harmful.
Over time, your body will heal these tiny punctures. This process will stimulate your body to make more collagen. Collagen is a protein that helps your skin stay firm and smooth. Increasing your collagen production can minimize the appearance of your wrinkles and fine lines. This process may also even out your skin tone and decrease the appearance of stretch marks and scars.
What Areas of My Body Can This Treatment Improve?
Your face is one of the first places on your body to show the negative signs of age. Fortunately, you can use this technique to enhance this feature. In addition to reducing wrinkles, scars, and other imperfections on your face, this technique can be used to improve the skin on your legs, hands, neck, and other areas on your body. During your initial consultation, we can tell you whether we can use this treatment to enhance the skin in your target area.
What Will My Appointment Be Like?
This is a straightforward, out-patient appointment. Since your appointment is very quick and easy, you should feel excited and confident! During your treatment, we will apply a sterile saline solution to your skin. We will position the pen against your treatment area and gently glide the device over your skin. This is a quick process, and you should be relaxed and at ease during your microneedling treatment. Further, this sophisticated device is designed to help you remain comfortable during your appointment.
How Long Will My Recovery Period Last?
This treatment usually has a very minimal recovery period, and you should be able to quickly return to your job and other responsibilities. Since your treatment will be unique, you may recover more or less quickly than other people.
In particular, the position of the device and the skin conditions that you are trying to improve can impact the duration of your recovery period. That said, your skin is likely to recover within two to four days after your treatment is complete.
We may ask you to follow some simple rules during your recovery period. For instance, we may ask you not to wear makeup immediately after your appointment. We may also advise you to stay out of the sun while your skin is healing.
You should also avoid using creams and other skincare products that could irritate your skin during this time. We can provide you with more detailed aftercare instructions during your initial consultation with us.
What Are the Benefits of This Treatment?
This microneedling treatment has a variety of unique benefits. These innovative features allow this treatment to enhance your skin in a safe, efficient manner.
A Minimally-Invasive Option
Although invasive cosmetic procedures can dramatically change your appearance, these techniques often are expensive and difficult to endure. Further, you might have to block off days or weeks from your busy schedule while you are recovering from your procedure. In contrast, this microneedling treatment has minimal downtime. You should be able to quickly return to your job and other activities.
A Natural Way
Many cosmetic treatments use chemicals and foreign substances to enhance your skin. Although these treatments are very safe and effective, you might not be a suitable candidate for these methods. For instance, you might have an allergy to some of the ingredients in these injectable products. Alternatively, you might not like the idea of putting an injectable solution into your body.
Fortunately, you can improve your skin in a minimally invasive, natural way by stimulating your body’s own collagen production. Rather than introducing chemicals into your body, this innovative technology uses your body’s healing abilities to enhance your appearance.
This treatment is an ideal way to quickly enhance your skin. Although your individual results will vary, many people find their skin starts to glow immediately after your appointment. Your skin’s tone and overall appearance should gradually improve in the days and weeks after your treatment session.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Your treatment plan will be customized to fit your individual needs and preferences. The condition of your skin, your aesthetic goals, and other factors can influence the length of your treatment program.
An Individualized Process
If you are trying to address minor skin issues, you might receive only one treatment session. If you would like to improve the condition of deeper wrinkles or noticeable acne scars, we may advise you to receive a series of treatments to achieve your desired outcome. During your initial consultation, we will analyze your skin and provide you with more details about your anticipated treatment plan.
Maintaining Your Improvements
Although this treatment can provide lasting benefits, it does not permanently change your skin. That said, you can prolong the benefits of your treatment by receiving regular touch-up sessions.
Can I Use an At-Home Microneedling Device to Improve My Skin?
Many websites sell at-home devices that claim to provide the same benefits as professional microneedling treatments. Although these devices might be inexpensive, they can be ineffective and dangerous.
A Dangerous Option
At-home microneedling kits often lack the safety features that are included in professional microneedling devices. For instance, these kits may not be clean and sterile. Further, these devices could create wounds that harm your skin or cause you to develop noticeable scars.
An Ineffective Choice
At-home kits may also fail to improve your skin in a meaningful way. These devices may not be as strong or powerful as professional devices. As a result, they might fail to minimize the appearance of your stretch marks, scars, wrinkles, and other imperfections.
A Better Option
You will achieve much more noticeable results when you receive your microneedling treatment from a trained professional. At Guelph Medical Laser, we have extensive experience using this technique to enhance skin in a precise, careful manner, and we can customize your treatment to address your unique issues and imperfections. Further, one of our nurses or physicians will be on-site during your treatment.
Can I Combine Platelet Rich Plasma With Microneedling?
Combining microneedling with platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, can be an excellent way to enhance the benefits of your skincare treatment.
The Power of Your Platelets
We will begin your treatment by drawing your blood. Next, we will use a centrifuge to isolate the growth platelets in your blood. Once we have isolated your platelets, we will use a microneedling device to make tiny punctures in your treatment area. We will administer the growth platelets into your treatment area. Introducing this substance into your tiny puncture wounds can jumpstart your body’s natural healing powers.
This treatment may improve sun damage, fine lines, and acne scars. We can give you more details about PRP with microneedling during your initial meeting with us. We can help you decide which microneedling technique is best for you.
Am I a Suitable Candidate for This Treatment?
If you are an adult who has dark circles under your eyes, acne scars, wrinkles, or other skin issues, you may be an excellent candidate for this treatment. Further, you may be able to use this technique even if you are not a good candidate for laser treatments or invasive cosmetic procedures. Since this treatment is minimally invasive and gentle, it can work on many different skin types.
Although this treatment is very easy, it is not suitable for everyone. During your initial consultation, we will analyze your skin and talk about your overall health. At this point, you should tell us if you have any health conditions, including eczema or rosacea. You should also tell us if you’re prone to developing scars or cold sores.
We will use this information to determine whether you can receive this treatment. If you are not a suitable candidate, we will suggest other cosmetic treatments for you. For instance, we might be able to improve your wrinkles with Botox or dermal fillers.
