Microneedling - a safe, effective anti-aging treatment
Advanced Micro Needling Technology: Eclipse MicroPen™
Eclipse MicroPen™ is a revolutionary cordless dermal micro-needling device used for wrinkle reduction, acne scars, traumatic scars, stretch marks, skin tone improvement, hyper-pigmentation, and hypo-pigmentation. The unique features of the Turbo Safety Needle® ensure the Eclipse MicroPen™ delivers greater microneedling efficiency and superior clinical results while maintaining the highest level of safety. It is safe for ALL skin types which means it is a great procedure for almost everyone!
Eclipse MicroPen’s patented high-speed motor means quick penetration by the disposable needles. This creates a more comfortable experience that patients describe as a sandpaper-like sensation.
Each patient’s skin has unique features and individual needs. The adjustable needle depth allows MicroPen professionals to customize your treatment. Eclipse MicroPen™ is able to deliver a predictable healing experience for every patient.
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 disposable 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 wrinkles. 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.
What are the Benefits of Eclipse Micropen™ Treatment?
Wrinkle reduction, texture, tone improvement and softer, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. New collagen production reverses years of sun damage. Eclipse Micropen™ also has a positive effect on hyper-pigmentation as well as on hypo-pigmentation, 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, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.
How is the micro-needling procedure done?
A sterile needle-tip containing 12 tiny micro-needles is attached 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 Eclipse Micropen™ procedure take?
The procedure takes 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the area treated.
What is the downtime after microneedling?
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 micro-needling treatment as collagen production continues.
How many Eclipse Micropen™ 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.
