How Is The Procedure Done?
A sterile cartridge containing 12 points is attached to the Eclipse MicroPenâ„¢.
Your skincare professional will apply a thin layer of topical gel to your skin and select the appropriate pen setting based on your unique needs.
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 MicroPenâ„¢ is similar to light sandpaper being moved across the skin.
While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating tip reduces discomfort while the applied hydrating gel also makes the treatment more tolerable.
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 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. Many 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 can continue to improve up to 6 months after a treatment as collagen production continues.
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 2-3 treatments spaced about 6-8 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.
