Automatic Micro-Needling via MicoPen® creates controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to aid in the production of collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker epidermis with a softer appearance of wrinkles, improvement of pore size, acne scars and overall appearance of the skin*. The micro-channels created allow topical hyaluronic acid or platelet enriched plasma (PRP) to be absorbed more effectively, enhancing the effects in deeper layers of the skin.
PRP is a concentration of platelets from your own blood that aid in tissue regeneration. They support tissue repair, and aid in collagen and elastin production for beautiful, youthful results.
The Eclipse MicroPen® Elite
The Eclipse MicroPen® Elite is an advanced medical-grade automated device. Composed of medical grade stainless steel, the MicroPen® Elite is the first cordless fractional automated micro-needling device for treating various dermatologic indications and can be used on the: face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.
The automated micro-needling pen is a safe alternative to common skin resurfacing tools, such as lasers and dermal rollers. The MicroPen® Elite, which won THE Aesthetic Industry Award for Best Micro-Needling Device, is affordable, effective, requires minimal down time and provides natural-looking results.
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, dark spots, acne 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 applicator tip containing 12 points is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen®. A thin layer of PRP or Hyaluronic Acid will be applied to the skin and the appropriate pen setting based on your unique needs is selected. 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 Eclipse MicroPen® tip reduces discomfort. The skin will be treated with a topical numbing cream before the micro-needling treatment.
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. We will supply you with a post treatment kit.
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.
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.
