What is automated Micro-Needling?Automated Micro-Needling also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for the treatment of ﬁne lines, acne scars and improvement of the skin’s texture, tone and colour. During this procedure, tiny needles are used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to produce collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker dermis with softer wrinkles. Eclipse MicroPen™ also creates micro channels which allow topical gels, creams and serums to be absorbed more eﬀectively, enhancing their eﬀects in deeper layers of the skin.Skin needling
What is the downtime? Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin. The total healing time depends on the depth of needles used and the number of overlapping passes is performed. On average, expect some reddness for 2-4 days. For many people healing completely in 24 hours.
When will I see the results? You will notice an immediate “glow” to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several weeks. Results continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment as collagen production continues.
How many treatments will I need? Some people 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 space at about 6-8 weeks apart. For people with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 6 week intervals.
What are the beneﬁts? Wrinkle reduction, texture, tone improvement and softer, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. New collagen production reverses years of sun damage. Eclipse MicroPen™ also has a positive eﬀect on hyper-pigmentation as well as on hypo-pigmentation, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks.
How is the procedure done? A sterile needle-tip containing 12 tiny micro-needles is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen™. A thin layer of topical gel is applied to your skin and the appropriate treatment depth is selected based on your unique needs and the area being treated. 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. Topical numbing cream maybe applied pre treatment but this is not a must.
