Reverse the signs of aging and revitilize your skin with micro-needling.
WHAT IS AUTOMATED MICRO-NEEDLING?
Automated Micro-Needling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for the treatment of fine lines, acne scars, and improvement of the skin’s texture, tone and color. 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.
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 treating uneven skin tone, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks.
WHAT AREAS OF THE BODY CAN I TREAT?
Eclipse Micro-Pen™ can be used on all parts of the body; face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen, and back.
HOW IS THE PROCEDURE DONE?
A sterile needle-top containing 12 tiny micro-needles is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen™. Dr. Smiley will apply a thin layer of topical gel to your skin and select the appropriate treatment depth 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.
HOW LONG DOES THE PROCEDURE TAKE?
The procedure takes 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the area treated.
WHAT IS THE DOWNTIME?
Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin.
Total healing depends on the depth of the needles used and the number of overlapping passes Dr. Smiley performs. On average, patients are red for 2-4 days. Some patients heal completely in 24 hours.
Utilizing the eclipse Recovery System™ pst treatment will speed up the healing.
