What is Automated Micro-Needling?
Automated Micro-Needling is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for the treatment of fine lines, acne scars and improvement in skin’s texture, tone and color. During this procedure, tiny needles are used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to produce collagen and elastin. This skin’s repair process results in thick dermis with softer wrinkles.
What are the benefits?
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, chest, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.
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 depth of needles used and the number of overlapping passes your skin care professional performs. On average, patients are red for 2 – 4 days. Some patients heal completely in 24 hours. Utilizing the Eclipse Dermal Recover System post treatment will speed the healing process.
How many 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 3 treatments spaced 4 – 6 weeks apart. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars it is recommended to receive 6 – 8 sessions at 4 – 6 week intervals.
