Eclipse 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 created 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. The 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.
A sterile needle-tip containing 12 tiny micro needles is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen. Your clinician will apply a thin layer of topical gel to your skin and select the appropriate treatment depth based on your needs. Next, in a single motion, the pen will be gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding in one direction until the treatment area has been covered.
What Can I expect?
Clients 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. You will notice a reduction in wrinkles, improvement in tone and texture and softer, younger looking skin. The Eclipse MicroPen also has a positive effect on hyper-pigmentation as well as treating uneven skin tone, acne scars and stretch marks.
Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin similar to a moderate sun burn. The total healing time will depend on the depth of needles used and the number of overlapping passes your clinician performs. On average, patients may experience a mild pinkness for up to 2 days; however, some patients heal completely in 24hours. The application of either a Peptide Mask or Growth Factor in the clinic will reduce the overall downtime associated with the procedure.
Is it Painful?
Many clients find the treatment quite tolerable with minimal discomfort and report the feeling is similar to sandpaper moving across the skin. While some areas can be more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating needle tip makes the treatment comfortable.
You will be provided a post treatment pack of specialized skin care products to be used in the days following your treatment. This will reduce any redness and inflammation and will speed up the healing process.
