NEWPORT BEACH, CA--(Marketwired - May 2, 2014) - Semira Bayati, MD, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Orange County, says the Eclipse MicroPen™ is the latest in skin care technology. The Eclipse MicroPen™, a dermal micro-needling device, is designed to reduce signs of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars for an improved look and texture to the skin. The device, when used in combination with platelet-rich plasma (PRP), can also be used to treat certain cases of hair loss.
Dr. Bayati recently blogged about this revolutionary device on her website in a post titled, "Introducing Our New Anti-Aging and Hair Loss Treatment - The Eclipse MicroPen™," where she says the device is usually used in Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT). During the procedure, the Eclipse MicroPen™'s tiny micro-needles work to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin. After the device is gently pressed onto the desired treatment areas, the skin's natural healing process should repair the micro-injuries, stimulating increased collagen and elastin production and softening wrinkles and fine lines. Dr. Bayati says the Eclipse MicroPen™ can also create a more balanced skin texture and tone, as well as a more refreshed, youthful appearance overall.
The Newport Beach cosmetic surgeon says if PRP is used during the procedure, nutrients can be restored to dormant hair follicles in an effort to trigger hair regrowth. Dr. Bayati says PRP is taken from the patient's own blood cells, and the growth proteins found in PRP can activate regeneration and work to fill in areas of hair loss on the scalp.
She says this breakthrough technology, whether used for skin care treatments or hair restoration, has several benefits, including:
- Minimal side effects - minor redness and tenderness of the treated skin
- Reduced downtime - most patients do not require excessive recovery time
- Decreased treatment time - usually only 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area
- Increased safety - disposable sterile single-use surgical grade needle tips with Turbo Safety Needle® technology
- Enhanced comfort - quicker treatment paired with the topical soothing gel used prior to treatment minimizes discomfort
- Long-term results - many patients can enjoy benefits for 6 to 12 months
Dr. Bayati says many people can benefit from the new Eclipse MicroPen™, and the treatment can serve as another alternative for patients who may not need invasive surgery to achieve their goals.
