Automated micro-needling is an innovation in aesthetics for the treatment of the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and the skin’s texture, tone and color. The skin’s repair process results in improvement of the appearance of softer wrinkles. Eclipse MicroPen® is the most advanced medical-grade automated micro-needling device on the market.

The benefits of micro-needling include a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles and also has a positive effect on the appearance of hyper-pigmentation, hypo-pigmentation, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks and generally creates a fresher appearance or glow to the skin. Microneedling can be used on all parts of the body, including the: face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.

During this procedure, the MicroPen is used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to stimulate collagen and elastin production. The skin’s repair process results in global improvement of the skin’s appearance while decreasing wrinkles, acne scars and promoting improved skin tone and texture.

The procedure takes 15-60 minutes depending on the size of the area treated. Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin and the skin treated may be red for a few hours, but many patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours.The total healing time depends on the depth and the number of overlapping passes.

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

Some patients only require a single treatment once per year to maintain optimal results.  However, depending on your skin texture and quality at the time of your consult, it may be recommend to have more than one treatment spaced approximately 4 to 6 weeks apart to repair your skin. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars it is recommended to receive 4-6 sessions at 4 to 6 week intervals.
