Automated micro-needling is an innovation in aesthetics for the treatment of the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and the skin’s texture, tone and color. Eclipse MicroPen® is the most advanced medical-grade automated micro-needling device on the market.
The benefits of micro-needling can included a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, stretchmarks, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging.
Micro needling is safe for all skin types. This is a benefit for patients who have a tendency to over react to heat based treatments or those with ultra sensitive skin which do not tolerate heat treatments well.
The procedure takes 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the area treated. Microneedling can be done alone or combined with PRP to optimize results, and reduce downtime.
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. Many patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours.
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. Patients notice an immediate “glow” 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.
