Dr. Doriana Cosgrove now offers the Eclipse Micropen™ at Desert Med Aesthetics! The Eclipse Micropen™ skin needling system allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair mechanism by creating micro “injuries” in the skin which triggers new collagen synthesis yet does not pose a significant risk of permanent scarring. The result is smoother, firmer and younger looking skin. The Micropen™ was just release in January 2013, and the technology has been used in Europe for many years.
Skin needling procedures are performed in a safe and precise manner with the use of the sterile Micropen™ needle head. The procedure is normally completed within 30-60 minutes depending on the required treatment and anatomical site. This results in the production of new collagen and elastin and promotes uniform healing. Micropen™ can be used in conjunction with growth factors (Skin Medica TNS Recovery complex) to augment even more the collagen production. Also it is used in combination with Hyaluronic Acid and other peptide gels to hydrate and reepithilialize.
