Automated micro-needling (also known as collagen induction therapy or CIT) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine that can help treat the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and the skinâ€™s overall appearance. During this procedure, the Eclipse MicroPenâ„¢ is used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to produce collagen and elastin. Automated micro-needling also creates superficial micro-channels which can be used with topical gels, creams and serums to help improve the appearance of the skin. Eclipse MicroPenâ„¢ is the most advanced medical-grade automated micro-needling device on the market.
What are the Benefits?
The benefits of micro-needling can include the reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. Eclipse MicroPenâ„¢ can also have a positive effect on the appearance of hyper-pigmentation and hypo-pigmentation, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks and create a fresher appearance or glow to the skin.
What areas of the body can I treat?
Eclipse MicroPenâ„¢ can be used on all parts of the body; face, neck, decollete, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.
How long does the procedure take and what is the downtime?
The procedure takes 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the area treated.The total healing time depends on the Eclipse MicroPenâ„¢ 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. Utilizing the Eclipse Dermal Recovery Systemâ„¢, or other quality skincare products, provided by your skincare provider, can help to speed up the healing process.
When will I see the results?
Patients notice an immediate â€œglowâ€ 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 as collagen production continues.
