What are the benefits? +−
The benefits of micro-needling can include a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of ageing. Eclipse MicroPen® can also have a positive effect on the appearance of hyperpigmentation, dark spots, acne scars and stretch marks and create a fresher appearance or glow to the skin.
Eclipse MicroPen® can be used on all parts of the body; face, neck, decollete, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.
How is the procedure done? +−
A sterile applicator tip containing 12 points is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen®. Your skincare professional will apply a thin layer of solution, such as medical-grade saline solution, 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 MicroPen® is similar to light sandpaper being moved across the skin. While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating Eclipse MicroPen® tip reduces discomfort while the post-treatment hydrating gel also makes the procedure more tolerable
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 MicroPen® 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 Rejuvenation System™, or other quality skin care products, provided by your skin care provider, can help to speed up the post-care process
When will I see results? +−
Patients notice an immediate “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.
How many treatments are needed? +−
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-ageing, stretch marks or acne scars, your skin care provider may recommend 6-8 sessions at 6-week intervals.
