Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that is used to activate the body’s natural restorative processes to transform blemished and damaged tissue into smoother, clearer, more vibrant skin. Also known as percutaneous collagen induction therapy (PCIT), microneedling is a procedure where tiny sterile needles penetrate the skin in order to create superficial injuries that stimulate the production of collagen, elastin, and other growth factors in response to small areas of injury.
At Pure Dermatology, we use the Eclipse MicroPen Elite to stimulate the tissue and improve the appearance of the skin. It is designed for use by skin care professionals. The procedure is performed in a safe and precise manner utilizing the Turbo Safety Cartridge™, a sterile micro-exfoliation component. The procedure is typically completed in 30-60 minutes, depending on the body site being treated.
