We are so excited to start offering the Eclipse Micropen for treatment of scaring, fine lines and wrinkles, and much more. We have been seeing great results and cannot wait for more patients to use it! You can take advantage of our week of beauty specials to get a FREE MicroPen treatment when you buy 2.
How does it work?
The MicroPen device works with the body’s natural immune response in a treatment called “percutaneous collagen induction therapy” (PCIT). The instrument’s tiny needles penetrate the epidermis and dermis (2 outer layers of skin) in a very controlled, precise manner. These micro-injuries to the skin stimulate the body to produce new collagen and elastin – the support system of healthy skin. As the treated area heals, smoother, more even, healthier-looking skin appears.
We sometimes use Eclipse MicroPen to create micro-channels for applying topical treatments, such as lightening agents. This allows more effective absorption deeper into the skin.
What does the MicroPen help?
- Fine lines and moderate wrinkles
- Scars from acne, surgery or injury
- Uneven skin tone or texture
- Stretch marks
- Premature aging from sun exposure
- Enlarged pores
What can I expect?
A sterile needle-tip containing 12 tiny micro-needles is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen. We apply a thin layer of hyaluronic acid gel to your skin and select the appropriate treatment depth based on your unique needs. Next, in a single motion, the pen is gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered. Treatment time depends on the size of the treatment area and usually takes about 15 to 30 minutes.
Is there downtime after MicroPen treatments?
There is no downtime to recover from the procedure, but the treatment will result in redness that resembles a raspberry or scrape. The redness may take anywhere from 24 hours to 4 days to go away. If you receive treatment in an area that you cannot easily conceal, you may want to allow time for the treatment site to heal.
When can I expect to see results?
Visible improvements to the treated area begin to appear over 2 to 3 weeks. Continued improvement may continue for up to 6 months following treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
For optimal results, we usually perform 3 to 4 treatments at intervals of 2 to 4 weeks. More severe or advanced conditions, such as scars or deeper wrinkles, can require up to 8 sessions spaced anywhere from 2 to 6 weeks apart.
