Strike a Pen through Scars, Balding, Wrinkles, Brown Spots and Stretch Marks!
...with the Eclipse Elite MicroPen
What is Eclipse MicroPen Elite Micro-Needling? Automated micro-needling, or "collagen-induction therapy," is an innovation in aesthetics for the treatment of the appearance of fine lines, acne and other scars, melasma, stretch marks, hair loss, and the skin’s texture, tone and color. It can be combined with PRP for augmented results, and applied to the scalp along with PRP injected under the skin, to regrow hair.
What is PRP and why do you use PRP with microneedling? Please read more about the remarkable benefits of harnessing growth factors from your own platelets in PRP using the Eclipse Elite Micropen for Microneedling and intralesional injections.
What are the benefits? Patients see a 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 help improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation as well as uneven skin tone, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks. Recently patients with balding have seen impressive regrow th of hair with several treatments.
What areas of the body can I treat? MicroPen® Elite can be used on all parts of the body, including the: face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen, back and scalp.
How is the procedure performed? A sterile tip containing 12 tiny micro-tips is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen® Elite. Your skincare professional will apply either hyaluronic acid or PRP and select the appropriate treatment pen settings 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. Several passes will be performed.
What does it feel like? The feeling associated with the Eclipse MicroPen® Elite is anything from no sensation other than a feeling of someting being glided across the skin to a prickling sensation. While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating cartridge tip makes the treatment comfortable. Some patients, especially if we are treating deeper issues such as scars or stretch marks, elect to have a topical anesthetic applied prior to the procedure.
How long does the procedure take? The procedure takes 15-60 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated.
What is the downtime? Immediately after the treatment, you will notice a bright redness to the skin. The total recovery time depends on the position of the pen and the number of overlapping passes your skincare professional performs. On average, patients are red for 2-4 days. Some patients heal completely in 8 to 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.
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 4 to 6 treatments spaced 4 to 8 weeks apart. For patients with concerns about deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars, it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 6-week intervals.
What is the aftercare? You will be able to wash the treated area about six hours after the procedure. You should avoid sweating and exercise for 24 hours. We recommend the use of the Eclipse Dermal Rejuvenation System beginning the day of the treatment.
