Introducing the Micropen Elite
You can have the youthful, healthy, and smooth skin you desire without using harmful laser resurfacing methods. A new revolutionary treatment was developed by leading doctors in skin repair and dermatology and is called micro-needling. As an alternative to laser resurfacing, micro-needling using the Micropen Elite, preserves the epidermis and stimulates collagen deposits. It focuses on restoring your first layer of skin -- the epidermis – from wrinkles, sagging or scaring without ever damaging or destroying this important skin layer to produce its miraculous results.
Safe, New Technology & Technique With Proven Results
As an FDA-registered Class I device, Micropen Elite uses a safe, technology-advanced technique that results in giving skin a more youthful appearance as well as reverses stretch marks and scars. Patients first prepare the skin area to be treated with topical Vitamin A, C and other antioxidants for at least 3 weeks. The procedure itself involves the skin receiving controlled and precise micro-injuries delivered by the Micropen’s high-speed automated needle tip. The needles penetrate the epidermis but do not remove it. Instead, the technique creates thousands of microscopic channels which increases the formation of new healthy tissue through the body’s own healing process.
This results in the production of new collagen and elastin while preserving the epidermis skin layer. The technique will also promote thicker skin and requires a shorter healing phase and only the use of a local anesthetic alone. Micro-needling is the body’s natural response to wounding the skin. This relatively minor procedure is also ideal for patients who are worried about surgery. Most areas of the body can be treated with the Micropen Elite including the face, arms, abdomen, thighs and buttocks.

Cost Effective, Collagen Production Delivery System
Micro-needling using the Micropen Elite is a cost-effective, versatile delivery system that allows physicians to induce collagen synthesis and production. This safe technique has been shown to increase skin enhancement by creating thousands of microscopic channels through the skin, to increase the formation of new tissue through the body’s own healing process. This micro-channeling causes the release of growth factors that promote scar-less healing and the deposits of normal “woven” collagen instead of scar collagen. All you see is more healthy, youthful skin. And all you will experience is a shorter healing process without damaging your upper skin layer.
