Microneedling Q & A

What is microneedling?

Microneedling is a regenerative type of treatment that stimulates new skin cell and tissue production in a cost-effective manner. The Eclipse MicroPen Elite is a safe and effective automated microneedling device that gently creates tiny puncture wounds in your skin as your practitioner glides the instrument over your treatment area.

Your brain quickly gets a signal that your skin is injured, which triggers a healing cascade of events. As skin cells start regenerating, fresh, new healthy tissue — including collagen — start to form. Over the following few weeks, as older, damaged skins begin to shed away, healthy new skin rises to the surface, leaving you with visibly brighter, more glowing skin.

What can microneedling treat?

Microneedling with the revolutionary Eclipse MicroPen Elite system is ideal for treating a wide variety of skin imperfections. Dr. McMullen offers this modern aesthetic treatment to:

  • Minimize lines and wrinkles
  • Improve skin tone and texture
  • Decrease age spots and sun damage
  • Minimize scars, including acne scars

Though microneedling is most commonly performed on your face, Dr. McMullen can certainly design custom microneedling packages for other areas of your body, too. For instance, microneedling can improve skin on your décolleté, neck, hands, arms, and abdomen, to name a few.

Is there any downtime after microneedling?

Because microneedling with the Eclipse MicroPen Elite system stimulates blood flow and overall healing response, it’s normal to experience some slight swelling or redness afterward. Usually, these minimal side effects fade away within two to four days.

The team at the office of Kevin McMullen, MD, offer a selection of premium clinical-grade skin care solutions right in the office, so you can treat your skin at home and help your skin heal.

How many microneedling sessions do I need?

Dr. McMullen finds that most men and women who undergo microneedling with the Eclipse MicroPen Elite experience dramatic results with only a single session. However, if you have deeper grooves or wrinkles, or severely aged or sun-damaged skin, you could need a series of two to three sessions, each spaced at least six to eight weeks apart.

Once you achieve your optimal results with Eclipse MicroPen Elite microneedling, Dr. McMullen generally recommends coming in annually for maintenance sessions. This way, you’re always one step ahead of the effects of aging.
