MicroPen

The Micropen is a revolutionary breakthrough in skin rejuvenation which delivers a fractional micro needling to the skin. This innovative technology is meant to stimulate the body’s own collagen production to tighten, lift and rejuvenate the skin, minimize pore size, and reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and stretch marks, as well as keloid, surgical, and acne scars. This unrivaled cosmetic treatment awards you minimal downtime and exceptional results!

BEFORE, AFTER AND DURING TREATMENT

Allow about 30 to 40 minutes for your appointment. Your skin should be clean and make-up free for the treatment. Avoid alpha-hydroxyl or Retin-A products 12 hours prior to treatment. Micropen therapy is not advised if you have had prolonged sun exposure or sun burns to the treatment area 24 hours prior to your scheduled appointment. If you are prone to cold sores, take your prescribed medication prior to your appointment and continue use for 48 hours after treatment.

Immediate results can be seen after one treatment. However, a total of 5-6 treatments may be recommended for maximum results, allowing approximately 4-6 weeks between each treatment. Neocutis Bio-Serum/Bio-Restorative Serum with PSP is recommended post treatment to help heal the skin and to promote collagen stimulation.

REVITALIZE YOUR SKIN'S NATURAL ABILITY TO HEAL ITSELF WITH MICRO-NEEDLING

What is Micro-Needling?

Micro-Needling (also known Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for the treatment of the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and the improvement of the skin’s texture, tone and color. During this procedure, the Eclipse MicroPen is used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to aid in the production of collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker epidermis with a softer appearance of wrinkles. Micro-Pen Elite also creates micro-channels which allow topical gels, creams and serums to be absorbed more effectively, enhancing the effects in deeper layers of the skin.

What are the benefits?

Reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, improved skin tone and texture and softer, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. MicroPen Elite can improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation as well as uneven skin tone, acne scars, traumatic scars, and stretch marks.

What areas of the body can I treat?

MicroPen Elite 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 cartridge containing 12 tiny micro-needles is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen Elite. Your skincare professional will apply a thin layer of topical gel to your skin and select the appropriate pen position 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 Elite is similar to sandpaper being moved across the skin. While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating tip makes the treatment more comfortable.

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 pen position used and the number of overlapping passes your skincare professional performs. On average, patients are red for 2-4 days. Some patients heal completely in 24 hours. Utilizing the Eclipse Dermal Recovery System post treatment can speed up the healing process.

When will I see the results?

Patients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several weeks. Results can 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 a year to achieve optimal results. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 2-3 treatments space 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.
