Micro-Needling

What is automated Micro-Needling?

Automated Micro-Needling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for the treatment of fine lines, acne scars and improvement of the skin's texture, tone and color. During this procedure, tiny needles are used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to produce collagen and elastin. The skin's repair process results in a thicker dermis with softer wr inkles.Eclipse MicroPen"' also creates micro­ channels which allow topical gels, creams and serums to be absorbed more effectively, enhancing their effects in deeper layers of the skin.

"I look forward to every treatment because I see results immediately. All of my friends compliment me on my skin now and Iam so happy. Ihave had many other treatments before to treat my Acne scars, and nothing worked as well as the MicroPen . I would highly recommend it to anyone!"

- Elizabeth K.

What are the benefits?

Wrinkle reduction, texture, tone improvement and softer, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. New collagen production reverses years of sun damage. Eclipse MicroPenTM also  has  a  positive  effect  on hyper-pigmentation as well as treating uneven skin tone, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks.

What areas of the body can I treat?

Eclipse MicroPen™ can be used on all parts of the body; Face, neck, decollete, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.

How is the procedure done?

A sterile needle-tip containing 12 tiny micro-needles is at­ tached to the Eclipse MicroPen™.  Your skincare professional will apply a thin layer of topical gel to your skin and select the appropriate treatment depth based on your unique needs. Next, in a single motion, the pen will be gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered.

What does it feel like?

The feeling associated with the Eclipse MicroPen™ is similar to sandpaper being moved across the skin. While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating  needle tip makes the treatment  comfortable.

How long does the procedure take?

The procedure takes 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the area treated.

What is the downtime?

Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin.  The total healing time depends on the depth of needles used and the number of overlapping passes your skincare professional performs. On average, patients are red for 2-4 days. Some patients heal completely in 24 hours. Utilizing the Eclipse Dermal Recovery System™ post treatment will speed up the healing process.

When will I see the results?

Patients notice an immediate "glow" to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several weeks. Results continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment as collagen production continues.

How many treatments will I need?

Some patients only require a single treatment, once per year to achieve optimal results. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 6 week intervals.

NovaThread® Lift

WHAT ARE NOVATHREADS?

The are hypodermic needles preloaded with a PDO absorbable suture.

PDO ABSORBABLE SUTURE?

material-

It’s a synthetic absorbable surgical suture composed of polydioxanone. PDO sutures are used to perform cardiothoracic surgery (such as open-heart surgery). It’s one of the safest materials to be implanted in the body.

material-

In medical terms "Selective Inflammatory Response", it is the principle behind a lot of aesthetic procedures (such as Fractional Laser, Chemical Peels & MicroNeedling). Our skin is very good at repairing itself, and by inserting NOVATHREADS we make it ‘heal’ itself by creating new collagen, naturally!

HOW DOES IT WORK?

It's amazingly simple, actually!

 

material-

Your skin fully absorbs it within 4 to 6 months & won’t leave you with any scar tissue.

material-

Your skin fully absorbs it within 4 to 6 months & won’t leave you with any scar tissue.

Your skin gently reacts to the inserted threads
material-

Yes, PDO is fully absorbable, but that doesn’t mean your skin won’t react to it. During the 4 to 6 months needed to fully absorb the PDO suture, your skin is also repairing itself around it.

material-

It’s "controlled healing" happening underneath the skin!

NO CUTS OR INCISIONS.

 

material-

The NovaThreads are needles that are pre-loaded with a PDO thread. Simply insert the whole needle in the interstitial tissue at subdermal level, parallel to the surface of the skin, & pull the needle out.

material-

The PDO thread remains under the skin.

PURELY INJECTIONS!

material-

Although NovaThread® can be inserted almost anywhere, one area where they are especially effective is the neck and jawline.

material-

The lower third of the face is challenging to treat effectively with botulinum toxin or injectable fillers, which are most effective in the upper and middle third of the face, respectively.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is blood plasma that has been enriched with platelets. As a concentrated source of autologous platelets, PRP contains (and releases through degranulation) several different growth factors and other cytokines that stimulate healing of bone and soft tissue.

Blood-Derived Growth Factors
The internal essence of your blood contains life-giving fundamental protein growth factors. PRP utilizes a leading-edge patented technology specifically designed. With a simple, quick and advantageous process, your PRP professional is able to derived a high concentration of biological nutrient-rich cells and create autologous platelet-rich plasma.

fa-

The practitioner draws a similar amount of blood required for a basic lab test.

fa-

The practitioner places the blood into a centrifuge and spins the blood at a very rapid rate to separate the platelets from the other components of the blood

fa-

The platelet- rich plasma is activated to release at least 8 essential growth factors and signaling proteins. Platelet-rich plasma is a technology that deploys aspects of blood based biochemistry. Because all constitutes retrieved in PRP are exclusively from the patient (autologous in origin), there is virtually no risk of an allergic reaction or intolerance. Nevertheless, before any treatment disclose all the medications you a retaking (including herbs) with your doctor.

Sclerotherapy Treatment for Varicose Veins

Sclerotherapy can noticeably improve the appearance of some vascular lesions like "spider veins" and some varicose veins. Afflicting mainly women, "spider veins" (telangiectasias) are tiny red or purple vessels, close to the skin's surface, that commonly appear on the legs. Varicose veins are larger (usually more than one-fourth inch in diameter), distended, a darker color, and are more likely to cause pain. For the treatment of both types, a painless sclerosing solution is injected into the problem veins. The sclerosing (meaning "causing thickening") solution acts as an irritant that causes a localized thickening of blood factors, which eventually results in the vessels being filled in with nonvascular tissue. In effect, the treated vessels are absorbed by the body; this is manifested by the veins first turning a lighter color, and finally by disappearing. Notably, with the absorption of the target vessels, the pain (aching and cramping) associated with them is also often remedied. In most cases, about fifty to seventy per cent of the treated vessels will respond favorably.

During your initial consultation, Dr. Michelson will check for any possible complications with your venous system. A hand-held Doppler ultrasound device may be used to test for any circulatory backflow. If indicated, you may be referred to a different specialist, as any underlying problems would have to be addressed before sclerotherapy of the surface veins would be successful.

A sclerotherapy session usually takes only fifteen to forty-five minutes to complete. After an antiseptic solution is applied, a small syringe with a micro-needle is used to inject the sclerosing solution. During injecting, the skin above the veins is held taut, while bright indirect lighting and proper magnifying glasses ensure precision. Cotton and compression tape is applied to each area immediately after completion, and must remain in place for forty-eight hours. The procedure requires no anesthesia; you may experience a mild burning sensation when the solution is injected, but it subsides in a few seconds.

After the procedure, support hosiery will usually be prescribed to control blood clots and reduce bruising. A walking regimen will also help blood clots from forming in the deep veins of the legs. Several treatments at three to four week intervals may be required, and final results are usually apparent in several months.

Health is the Basis for Managing Body Weight at Michelson Cosmetic

Diseases associated with obesity and a large waist circumference include:

  • High cholesterol and cardiovascular disease (including coronary artery disease and stroke).
  • High blood pressure (hypertension). People who are obese have a risk for high blood pressure that is two to three times greater than that of people who maintain a healthy weight
  • Sleep apnea and respiratory problems
  • Osteoporosis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Type 2 diabetes (formerly called adult-onset diabetes or non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM))
  • Gallbladder disease (gallstones). People who are overweight have a risk for gallbladder disease that is two to three times greater than that of people who maintain a healthy weight
  • Metabolic syndrome*. Research has shown that having this syndrome increases your risk for coronary artery disease (CAD), even beyond that caused by high cholesterol alone
  • Some forms of cancer, such as those affecting the colon, breasts, and prostate
et-

Metabolic syndrome is a group of abnormalities related to the body's metabolism. These abnormalities include excess body fat (particularly around the waist), high triglycerides and blood pressure, and low HDL cholesterol. Metabolic syndrome is closely linked to a specific metabolic problem called insulin resistance, in which the ability of insulin to control the amount of sugar in the blood is impaired.
