Microneedling

Eclipse MicroPen® Elite

Microneedling is a great and minimally invasive way to restore a youthful look and softness to your skin. At Farrell Plastic Surgery & Laser Center, Dr. Deborah Farrell uses the Eclipse MicroPen Elite for microneedling treatments that achieve stunning results with very minimal downtime.

Why consider microneedling?

The MicroPen Elite microneedling treatment is great for common skin concerns including fine lines and wrinkles, light scarring from acne, flaws in skin tone or discoloration, and poor or rough texture. This is a very customizable treatment that Dr. Farrell can personalize based on your skin type and concerns. The strength and speed can be easily adjusted during your treatment to ensure you are comfortable at all times.

Microneedling may not be the most effective option for severe signs of aging or skin laxity. Dr. Deborah Farrell will help you choose the right treatment or procedure for you during your consultation.

How does microneedling work?

The MicroPen Elite is a handheld pen-like device with a tip consisting of 12 microneedles which are carefully moved across the surface of your skin. When these micro-tips penetrate into the dermis, they create microscopic wounds that stimulate your body’s healing response. Your body begins to produce new collagen and elastic, resulting in gradual, natural-looking improvements to your skin. Your treatment with Dr. Deborah Farrell should take just 15-30 minutes to complete, depending on the size of your area of focus.

What is the recovery process like after microneedling?

Most patients experience very little downtime following this procedure. Some redness is to be expected, but will fade over the following 2-4 days. You should feel well enough to resume normal activity fairly soon after your treatment, but should avoid any unnecessary sun exposure.

When will you notice your microneedling results?

Microneedling will provide you with gradual results as your skin’s healing response to the treatment continues to produce collagen and other essential substances. You may notice a refreshing glow as soon as your MicroPen session is complete, and further improvements will occur for up to six months after your treatment. Most of Dr. Deborah Farrell’s patients benefit most from a series of 2-3 treatment sessions with the Eclipse MicroPen.
