The Eclipse MicroPen is inherently safer than other products, such as dermal rollers. It utilizes sterile single-use surgical grade disposable cartridge tips. The unique features of the Turbo Safety Cartridge ensure the MicroPen delivers greater efficiency and superior clinical results while maintaining the highest level of safety for both the patient and provider. It is also safe for most skin types, which means it is a great procedure for almost everyone!
As the MicroPen is applied to the skin, hundreds of superficial micro-channels are created every few seconds. Epidermal Collagen Induction Therapy (ECIT) can stimulate the skin’s natural ability to heal itself. As a result, new collagen and elastin produce softer, firmer skin and can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, acne scars and textural issues.
Typically, the skin has a nice glow immediately following an Eclipse MicroPen micro-needling session. Results can be observed in as early as 30 days.
The benefits of micro-needling can include a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging.
Eclipse MicroPen may also has a positive effect on the appearance of hyper-pigmentation, hypo-pigmentation, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks and generally creates a fresher appearance or glow to the skin.
Eclipse MicroPen can be used on all parts of the body, including the: face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.
A sterile cartridge containing 12 points is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen.Your skincare professional will apply a thin layer of topical gel 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.
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 tip reduces discomfort while the applied hydrating gel also makes the treatment more tolerable.
The procedure takes 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the area treated.
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. Many patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours.
Utilizing the Eclipse Dermal Recovery System, or other quality skincare products, provided by your skincare provider, can help to speed up the healing process.
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 after a treatment as collagen production continues.
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.
