NEW & IMPROVED MICRO- PEN

The Eclipse micropen treatment triggers collagen production through a micro-needling technique. The treatment can treat a range of skin issues, from wrinkles and acne scars to stretch marks and sagging skin. During the treatment, ultrathin needles create minuscule columns in the dermis, which triggers the skin’s healing abilities. As the skin heals, it fills in the columns with fresh, new skin cells, resulting in firmer, smoother skin and new collagen production. The treatment requires virtually no downtime because it does not disturb the outer-most layer of skin, while promoting healing and growth in the layers below. Fractional micro-needling can be used to reduce signs of aging in skin, wrinkles, skin impurities, acne scars, stretch marks, skin tightening and pigmentation marks. Available for all skin types.

What is Automated Micro-Needling?

Automated micro-needling (also known as collagen induction therapy or CIT) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine that can help treat the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and the skin’s overall appearance. During this procedure, the Eclipse MicroPen® is used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to produce collagen and elastin. Eclipse MicroPen® is the most advanced medical-grade automated micro-needling device on the market. Look for an Eclipse MicroPen® professional in your area now.


What is PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Therapy?

PRP therapy is done by collecting blood from the patient and spinning it in a centrifuge for 15 minutes to separate the platelets from the blood. This “platelet-rich plasma” is drawn out and can then be used via injection or micro-needling back into the patient.

The platelet-rich plasma is full of growth factors which can aid in the repair process of tissue, including the skin. Two growth factors in particular, FGF and PDGF, promote cell growth, tissue repair and the production of new collagen.


What are the benefits?

The benefits of micro-needling can include a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. Eclipse MicroPen® can also have a positive effect on the appearance of hyper-pigmentation and hypo-pigmentation, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks and create a fresher appearance or glow to the skin.

What areas of the body can be treated?

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 cartridge tip containing 12 points is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen®. Your skincare professional will apply a thin layer of topical gel to your skin and select the appropriate pen setting 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 light sandpaper being moved across the skin. While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating MicroPen® tip reduces discomfort while the applied hydrating gel also makes the treatment more tolerable.

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 Eclipse MicroPen® setting used and the number of overlapping passes your skincare professional performs. On average, patients are red up to 2 to 4 days. Some patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours. Utilizing the Eclipse Dermal Recovery System, or other quality skincare products, provided by your skincare provider, can help to speed up the post-care process.

When will I see results?

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

How many treatments are needed?

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, your skin care provider may recommend 6-8 sessions at 6 week intervals.
