Micro-needling is also known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT). It is one of the hottest procedures right now in aesthetic medicine. Micro-needling targets fine lines, acne scars, traumatic scars, pores, pigmentation and improvement of the skin’s texture, tone, and color. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker dermis with softer wrinkles.
Micro-needling with the Eclipse MicroPen™ incorporates topical gels, creams, serums and PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), which is also known as the Vampire Facial™ to the treatment.
Seychelles is proud to use the Eclipse MicroPen™. With its wireless technology and new turbo safety needle, the Eclipse MicroPen ™ is the most advanced and safest micro-needling device available. The pen creates micro-channels allowing topical gels, creams and serums to be absorbed more effectively.
The Micro-needling treatment is appropriate for all parts of the body. The most popular areas are the face, neck, décolleté (chest), hands, scars and stretch marks.
A topical product such as hyaluronic acid or PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is applied to the skin being treated. We then use the Eclipse MicroPen™, which contain tiny needles that are used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to promote collagen and elastin growth. We select the appropriate setting based on your unique needs. Next, in a single motion, the pen will be gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered.
The feeling associated with the Eclipse MicroPen™ is similar to a vibrating sensation. Some areas are more sensitive than others. Clients report a minimal discomfort associated with the procedure. We apply a topical numbing cream to the area 30-60 minutes before your treatment.
Typically, the procedure takes about 30-60 minutes.
We, at Seychelles, recommend most clients to receive a series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 4-6 weeks apart. Deeper wrinkles, acne scars, and stretch marks may require 6-8 sessions.
Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin. The total healing time depends on the Eclipse MicroPen™ settings used and the number of overlapping passes we perform. On average, clients are red up to 2 to 4 days. Many clients heal completely in as little as 24 hours, especially when using PRP, also known as the Vampire Facial™
Results can be seen as soon as the next day! Clients will notice an immediate “glow” to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several days and weeks. Results continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment as collagen production continues. Clients report a reduction of wrinkles, improvement in texture, tone and overall softer younger-looking skin.
