Q: What is automated Micro-Needling?
Automated Micro-Needling is an innovation in aesthetic medicine for the treatment of scars and the improvement of the skinâ€™s texture, tone and color. Eclipse MicroPenÂ® is an advanced medical-grade automated micro-needling device.
Q: What areas of the body can be treated?
Eclipse MicroPenÂ® can be used on all parts of the body; face, neck, decollete, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.
Q: What does Micro-Needling do?
Reduction in the appearance of scars and softer, younger- looking skin with fewer signs of aging.
Q: How is the procedure done?
A sterile cartridge containing 12 tiny micro-points is attached to the Eclipse MicroPenÂ® Elite. Your skin-care professional will apply sterile saline to your skin and select the appropriate pen position 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.
Q: What does it feel like?
The feeling associated with the Eclipse MicroPenÂ® Elite is similar to sandpaper being moved across the skin. While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating tip makes the treatment more comfortable.
Q: How long does the procedure take?
The procedure takes 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the area treated.
Q: What is the downtime?
Immediately after the treatment, you will notice a bright redness to the skin. The total healing time depends on the pen position used and the number of overlapping passes your skin-care professional performs. On average, patients experience redness for 2-4 days. Some patients heal completely in 24 hours. Utilizing the Eclipse Dermal Rejuvenation SystemTM, post treatment can aid the healing process.
Q: When will I see results?
Patients notice an immediate â€śglowâ€ť 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.
Q: 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 2-3 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart. For patients with more significant skin-care concerns, such as acne scars, it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 6-week intervals.
