What is Microneedling?

Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment in which tiny punctures are made in the skin using micro-fine needles (from 0.5 to 2 millimeters in diameter).The micro-injuries created stimulates the body’s natural wound healing processes, resulting in cell turnover and increased collagen and elastin production. The skin’s repair process results in improvement of the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, pore size, acne scars, and stretch marks.

What does it feel like?

With numbing, most patients do not feel anything during the treatment. The needles used in microneedling devices are tiny and only come in contact with the first few layers of skin. You will likely experience little to no discomfort during the procedure, and the healing process is quick and easy.

No heat also equals less downtime! Most Eclipse MicroPen® patients are red for 24 hours or less. That advantage means you can get the procedure performed on a Friday and be back to normal for work on Monday.

Also, because the MicroPen® is not a laser, it is safe to use on all skin types.

The benefits of micro-needling can included a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging.

Eclipse MicroPen® may 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.

Eclipse MicroPen® can be used on all parts of the body, including the: face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.

A sterile applicator containing 12 points is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen®.

Your skincare professional will apply a topical anesthesia to the treatment area for 30 minutes.

Next, a thin layer of hyaluronic acid is applied to your skin and your provider will select the appropriate pen setting based on your unique needs.

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.

A topical numbing agent is applied to the skin for 30 min. The procedure takes 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the area treated.

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. Many patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours.

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 as collagen production occurs.

It is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 3 treatments spaced about 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 6-week intervals.
