I look forward to every treatment because I see results. All of my friends compliment me on my skin now and I am so happy. I have had many other treatments before to treat my Acne scars, and nothing worked as well as the MicroPen™. I would highly recommend it to anyone!

The Eclipse MicroPen™ is a fantastic treatment! I was in no pain and I could go back to work the same day. After a few days my skin was so soft and the texture had improved dramatically.

What is micro-needling?
Micro-Needling is an innovation in aesthetic medicine for treating the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and improvement of the skin’s overall appearance. We use the Eclipse MicroPen® technology.
During this procedure, tiny needles are used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to produce collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in improvement of the appearance of softer wrinkles.
Micro-needling creates superficial micro-channels which induce the healing process to help improve the appearance of skin. It can be combined with PRP: platelet rich plasma for additional improvement in some types of acne scarring.
What are the benefits?
The benefits of micro-needling are a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. Eclipse MicroPen™ also has a positive effect on hyper-pigmentation as well as on hypo-pigmentation, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks and generally creates a fresher appearance or glow to the skin.
What areas of the body can I treat?
Eclipse MicroPen™ can be used on all parts of the body; Face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.
How is the procedure done?
A topical anesthetic will be applied to the area being treated.
A sterile needle-tip containing 12 tiny micro-needles is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen™.
A thin layer of topical gel or your plasma is applied to your skin and your skincare professional will select the appropriate setting based on your unique needs.
The pen will be gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered.
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 settings used and the number of overlapping passes your skincare professional performs. On average, patients are red up to 2 to 4 days.
Quality skincare products, recommended by your skincare provider, can help to speed up the healing process.
When will I see the results?
Patients notice a “glow” 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.
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.
*results may vary. No treatment can entirely remove a scar.
