What is Microneedling, and How Does It Work?
The Eclipse MicroPen Elite uses needles to create microscopic punctures in the top layer of your skin. By methodically creating these tiny perforations, we can activate your body’s natural healing process. Your body will sense that it needs to repair the abrasions, and will begin to rapidly generate collagen and elastin. These substances keep your skin looking youthful, firm, and radiant.
Microneedling’s superpower is that it harnesses your body’s own incredible healing abilities. By promoting new cell production, microneedling tells your body to give you fresh and more youthful skin. It has been proven to show amazing results time and again.
What are the Benefits of Microneedling?
Because microneedling stimulates new collagen and elastin growth, patients can enjoy many wonderful benefits after just one procedure.
The Eclipse MicroPen Elite promotes:
- Softer, younger skin
- A more even skin tone
- The reduction of fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and blemishes
- Improved hyper-pigmentation and dark spots caused by excessive sunlight
- The prevention of the natural signs of aging
- A boost in self-confidence
- Safe, affordable, and proven results
- Minimally painful treatments with little downtime fast recovery
- 15-30 minute sessions
In addition to your facial skin, we also use microneedling to target other areas of your body, including your:
If you are looking to enhance your results even more, you can also pair the procedure with radiofrequency or PRP. Read on to learn more about PRP, and be sure to check out our RF microneedling page as well!
Microneedling with PRP
An increasing number of our patients opt to add PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, to their microneedling session. PRP is a substance derived from your own blood, so adding it to your procedure is entirely natural and has virtually no risk of allergic reaction and minimal risk of infection.
When you arrive for your microneedling session, we will draw a small amount of blood that we will then take to a device called a centrifuge. Our centrifuge will precisely separate PRP from the other components in your blood, which we can then use to add to your face during your microneedling session. As it seeps into the perforations created by the MicroPen®, PRP will significantly enhance your body’s natural healing process to give you an even better chance of rejuvenating your skin.

After your session, your skin will likely be red and shiny for roughly two to three days, though each patient will heal differently. The redness will gradually fade as your skin heals, and you’ll be able to see your results as this happens. Many patients continue to see their skin improve for up to six months after their procedure. We also recommend that our patients follow the Eclipse Dermal Recovery System™ to ensure that they recover properly.
It’s hard to say exactly how many treatments you’ll need until you meet with Dr. Kabiri’s team. Some patients enjoy results with just one session, while we recommend that others plan for several. A standard plan that we suggest is three to six treatments with four to six weeks in between. We can provide more information in your consultation.
Most patients tell us that their microneedling sessions are minimally painful. We’ll also offer you a specialized numbing cream, if you are at all hesitant. The Eclipse MicroPen Elite was designed with patient comfort in mind.
