As your source for aesthetic medicine treatments, Calgary Vein & Laser is pleased to offer one of the latest innovations in skin rejuvenation – micro-needling. This procedure is designed to treat fine lines and acne scars while improving your skin’s texture, tone and colour. The goal is to create softer, younger looking skin with fewer signs of aging. Also known as epidermal collagen induction therapy (ECIT), we are pleased to offer micro-needling with the Eclipse MicroPen®. Please contact us to book an appointment and we can discuss the skin rejuvenation techniques that are right to you. We offer a range of options including skin resurfacing, IPL photorejuvenation, PRP, Fractora and more.
The Eclipse MicroPen® creates controlled micro injuries to your skin to help in the production of collagen and elastin. This activates your skin’s natural repair process which promotes a thicker epidermis and softens the appearance of wrinkles. Micro-needling will also create micro-channels to help in the absorption of topical gels, creams and serums to deeper layers of skin. The therapy is administered through a sterile cartridge containing 12 tiny points that is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen®. After your skin is cleaned, the pen is gently pressed against the skin and then glides across the treatment area in one direction.
Benefits of the Eclipse MicroPen®
The micro-needling process is designed to offer a range of benefits, such as the following:
The procedure typically takes just 15-30 minutes but varies based on the size of the treatment area and the number of overlapping passes that are done. You will likely notice a bright redness to the skin for 2-4 days, although some patients may heal completely in as little as 24 hours. The number of treatments recommended will vary based on your unique skin care concerns. For some skin conditions such as acne scars, it is common to have multiple treatment sessions.
Through a comprehensive consultation, Calgary Vein & Laser will customize a treatment plan that makes sense for you. Contact us to book an appointment for micro-needling in Calgary.
