Microneedling easily and effectively shrinks pores, smooths and brightens your skin, improves superficial acne scars and hyperpigmentation. It uses micro-fine needles to create tiny punctures to trigger wound healing in the body, sending collagen and elastin to repair the skin. Along with that, we add products like Vitamin C and Hyaluronic acid to further speed up the process.
Micro-needling can be used on all parts of the body, including the face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.
A sterile applicator containing 12 points is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen®.
A thin layer of sterile saline to your skin and 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 micro-needling 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 30-60 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 that is performed. On average, patients are red up to 1 to 3 days. Many patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours.
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 .
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.
