The Micropen is a device that uses Automated Micro-Needling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT) for the treatment of fine lines, acne scars, and improvement of the 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. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker dermis with softer wrinkles. This treatment also has a positive effect on hyper-pigmentation as well as hypo-pigmentation, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks. Furthermore, the Eclipse Micropen also creates micro-channels, which allow topical gels, creams, and serums to be absorbed more effectively, enhancing their effects in the deeper layers of the skin.
Eclipse Micropen can be used on all parts of the body - face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.
The feeling associated with the Eclipse Micropen is similar to sandpaper being moved across the skin. While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating needle tip makes the treatment comfortable.
Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin. The total healing time depends on the depth of the needles used and the number of passes your skincare professional performs. On average patients are red for 2-4 days. Some patients heal completely in 24 hours.
