Micro Needling in Nashville, TN

The natural aging process, and all of the physical changes that accompany it, is something no one can avoid. While these outward changes of getting older are not highly regarded by most, micro needling is a simple process that can turn back the hands of time. Lines, wrinkles, creases and sagging skin become a thing of the past as tight, youthful skin is restored. New Life Physicians, led by regenerative and restorative medicine specialist Dr. Morgan Moor, is one of the leading wellness centers in Brentwood and offers the Eclipse MicroPen™ micro needling treatment. If you reside in Nashville, Franklin or a surrounding community of Tennessee and believe age is just a number, let us show you what microneedling is all about.

What is Micro Needling?

During the micro needling procedure, an electric needling device stimulates the production of strength-building components of the skin, elastin and collagen, as it works to break down old tissue and stimulates the rapid generation of new cells. This process helps to improve the overall texture of the skin, resulting in a refreshed and more youthful appearance. Because the body’s own skin cells are used in the process, the result is completely natural and no one will be able to tell what you had done.

Benefits of Micro Needling

Micro needling is a non-surgical alternative to achieving a natural-looking, revitalized appearance in the fight against the signs of aging. The procedure works by stimulating the body’s own healing process to increase elastin and collagen production in the skin in order to improve the skin’s appearance. In addition to improving skin texture, several other benefits of micro needling include:

  • Procedure is pain-free
  • Reduces signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, age spots and acne scars
  • Non-scarring
  • Ideal for people of both genders and all skin types
  • Short amount of recovery time required

What is the Eclipse MicroPen™?

The Eclipse MicroPen™ is one of the latest innovations in microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy or CIT. By using the Eclipse MicroPen™, the skin’s overall texture and quality is enhanced while acne scarring, pre-existing wrinkles, and fine lines are eliminated. The procedure encompasses a simple process where tiny needles create miniscule punctures in the skin to create controlled micro-injuries. These micro-injuries activate the body’s healing response which triggers the skin to produce collagen and elastin in an effort to heal itself. Skin heals itself by ramping up collagen production in order to create new skin at the site of injury. Microneedling uses this same concept with the collagen filling in wrinkles and creases, exposing more even tone, texture, and a youthful glow.

Benefits of the Eclipse MicroPen™

Microneedling is not only used in the fight against signs of aging, but also to help increase skin care products’ efficiency. Because the process creates tiny grooves on the skin’s surface, skin care products, once applied, are able to penetrate at a deeper level, thus intensifying their effectiveness. The Eclipse MicroPen™ can be used on almost any part of the body and is suitable for all skin types. The tool’s tiny needles are made of medical grade stainless steel which helps to eliminate the chance of allergic reactions. The speed setting of the Eclipse MicroPen™ can be personalized in order to tailor to each patient’s unique skin needs. Its flexibility in being used for a number of different skin concerns is possible due to the MicroPen’s™ ability to reach varying depths of the skin’s many layers. The procedure works to increase blood circulation in the skin, as well as stimulate the growth of new capillaries, all while the body works to heal itself with ramped up amounts of collagen and elastin. As a result, the skin is left looking renewed, refreshed and with the appearance of any pre-existing fine lines and wrinkles significantly reduced. The Eclipse MicroPen™ works to improve the skin’s texture and smoothness over time. The production of collagen continues, even after the procedure is complete, as the skin’s plumpness, moisture content,and elasticity are renewed. The Eclipse MicroPen™ can also be used to treat stretch marks, scars, and areas of discoloration.

What Areas Of The Body Can I Treat with the Eclipse MicroPen™?

The Eclipse MicroPen™ has been clinically shown to work on all areas of the body, including:

  • Face
  • Chest
  • Back
  • Neck and décolletage
  • Shoulders
  • Torso
  • Hands and arms
  • Legs and feet

Your Eclipse MicroPen™ Treatment

The amazing technology and advancement of Eclipse MicroPen™ allows this revolutionary treatment to be customized to your unique concerns and desired results. Visits to New Life Physicians are quick and easy, as each treatment takes very little time to complete. Treatment begins with a topical numbing gel being applied to your skin as a precaution against any discomfort you may feel during your treatment. After applying the gel, Dr. Moor will place the MicroPen™ gently against your skin in the targeted area while simultaneously moving it across the surface in one direction. This fluid movement of the pen allows the needle tips to lightly pierce the skin’s surface, which, in turn, stimulates collagen production as part of the body’s natural healing response to the micro-injuries created. Patients have described the feeling of the needles as similar to sandpaper rubbing against their skin. The swiftness of the piercing action, along with the anesthetic gel that was applied beforehand, will lessen any chance of pain or discomfort.

Eclipse MicroPen™ Recovery

Treated skin may appear pink or red in color following your procedure. This minor side effect is temporary and should subside within 24 hours. Those patients who have undergone a more rigorous treatment, with multiple passes of the Eclipse MicroPen™, may experience this discoloration for up to four days following treatment. Following the aftercare recommendations provided by the doctor can help to shorten your healing time.

When Will I See Results from Eclipse MicroPen™?

Initial results may be seen soon after treatment, however, as the body works to heal the micro-injuries sustained from the MicroPen™, visible improvements in skin tone and texture will be seen for up to six months. While treating a minor area of concern may only require one procedure, optimal results can be achieved with two to three separate treatment sessions performed at bi-monthly intervals. Those patients wanting to treat deep skin creases and wrinkles, acne scarring or areas of extreme sun damage may need to undergo between six and eight separate procedures in order to reach the optimal amount of benefits and transformation from their treatment.
