Eclipse MicroPen Elite
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling (also known as Epidermal Collagen Induction Therapy) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for the treatment of fine lines, acne scars and the improvement of the skin’s texture, tone and color. During this procedure, the Eclipse MicroPen® is used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to aid in the production of collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in thicker epidermis with a softer appearance of wrinkles. Eclipse MicroPen® Elite also creates micro-channels which allow topical gels, creams and serums to be absorbed more effectively, enhancing the effects in deeper layers of the skin.
What are the benefits?
Reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, improved skin tone and texture and softer, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging.
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 procedure done?
A sterile cartridge containing 12 tiny micro-points is attached to the micropen. Next, in a single motion, the pen will be gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously sliding in one direction until the entire area has been covered.
What does it feel like?
The feeling associated with the Eclipse Micro-Pen® Elite is similar to sandpaper being moved across the skin.
How long does the procedure take?
The procedure takes 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated.
What is the downtime?
Immediately after the treatment, you will notice a bright redness to the skin. On average, patients experience redness for 2-4 days. Some patients completely heal in 24 hours.
When will I see results?
Patients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several weeks. Results can continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
It is recommended for most patients to receive a series 2-3 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart. For patients with more significant skin-care concerns, such as acne scars, it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 6-week intervals.
