How does Micro needling work?
Micro needling is based on the use of tiny needles to create micro channels (tiny holes) in the skin. The process stimulates your skin’s natural ability to heal itself and in the process produces elastin and collagen.
This repair process begins almost immediately and results in a thicker dermis and softened scars or wrinkles. We use the automated Eclipse MicroPen™ for its predictable safety and performance profile.
There is no tissue destruction with micro needling. The small channels in the epidermis close very and the skin begins a healing response right away quickly. Depending on the depth of the skin defect, you might see only redness or you may experience some pinpoint bleeding which stops almost immediately.
An outstanding product absorption booster
These superficial micro-channels allow topical gels also, creams and serums to be absorbed more into the skin effectively. Specific treatment products can be selected to achieve accelerated results. We’ll employ various topicals depending upon your needs
- Hyaluronic serums
- Bleaching or lightening serums
- Stem cells to multiply new young cells
- Vitamin C for antioxidant and strengthening boost
- PRP Therapy via MicroNeedling
Topical PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Therapy utilize microneedling to advance the healing of lasers and resurfacing treatments. PRP treatments are also used to boost the freshness of the skin and improve skin tone and texture. About PRP Hair Restoration Therapy

Is Micro Needling new?
Micro needling has been used for decades in Europe in various forms, from blocked stamps to hand rollers to the new automated pens that make the process fast, consistent and for the most part, quite comfortable. Only in recent years have the physicians and public embraced the concept. (It’s almost as if something so simple couldn’t possibly work well, right?) But we’re discovering that this simple action of creating a tiny wound without heat or any other high technology works remarkably well.
Why we use the automated MicroPen?
MicroPen™ is able to deliver a predictable healing experience which is not always possible with lasers or other devices.
MicroPen uses sterile single-use surgical grade disposable needle tips. There is no potential for cross contamination between patients because there is never a re-use of needles.
Adjustable needle penetration depths allows Dr. Soni to choose a custom treatment program for your specific skin preferences and problems for treatment aggressiveness.
Micro needling is safe for ALL skin types. This is a boost for skins that have a tendency to over react to heat based treatments or those with ultra sensitive skins which do not tolerate heat treatments well.
Dr. Soni prefers the cordless MicroPen because it allows unrestricted movements to reach all facial areas without the interference of cords or wires.
What does microneedling feel like?
The high-speed motor causes the needle penetration to occur very quickly which means it will feel more like a sandpaper sensation than needles. It is described by some patients as similar as the feel of a cat’s tongue. Scar treatments require longer needles which invade “nerve space” and thus, produce more sensation.
After the treatment
Likely look as if you have a sunburn following treatment you’ll. This can last the rest of the full day, to several days or a week depending on treatment depth. Treat your skin gently and refrain from acid-containing products for a week or longer if advised by our nurse or Dr. Soni.
How Is MicroPen™ different from Dermal Rollers?
Automated micro-needling devices move in a vertical direction for better precision when treating the skin. Manual needle rollers do not create a precise vertical action and many of these rollers are made from inferior metals which are not smooth and it is impossible to sterilize them at home.
The lack of sterilization and precision issues can contribute to inconsistent effects to the skin, plus the risk of infection when the skin is not cleansed antiseptically.
How Is MicroPen™ different from Lasers?
Eclipse MicroPen™ breaks up pigment mechanically instead of with light (heat) and remodels the collagen without heat. Removing heat from the equation makes for a safer, more comfortable treatment with a very low complication rate.
No heat equals less downtime! Most Eclipse MicroPen™ patients are red for 24 hours or less. That advantage means you can get the procedure performed on a Friday and be back to normal for work on Monday.
