Microneedling is an easy, effective way to treat fine lines, deeper wrinkles, photodamage, acne scars, and improve the overall skin's appearance—it even helps stretch marks.
We use the Eclipse MicroPen, the industry leader, to create thousands of precise microinjuries in the skin. This leads to the release of grown factors, which stimulate new healthy collagen, and directs new blood flow to the treated skin. The result is a softer, brighter, younger looking complexion. It also allows the penetration of products into the skin, so your skin care will work even better!. We can even do a light chemical peel over the freshly needled skin or directly apply lightening agents.
Microneedling is perfect for someone who may not have a lot of downtime and is struggling with acne scars or just wants to improve the overall skin's appearance. It is a great maintenance procedure. It works great for the fine lines around the mouth and eyes Remember, skin rejuvenation takes time, and you will continue to see the results in the weeks and months to come, but you will notice an immediate "glow" following microneedling.

The benefits of micro-needling can include a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. Eclipse MicroPen® can also have a positive effect on the appearance of hyper-pigmentation, dark spots, acne scars and stretch marks and create a fresher appearance or glow to the skin.
Eclipse MicroPen® can be used on all parts of the body; face, neck, decollete, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.
A sterile cartridge tip containing 12 points is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen®. Your skincare professional will apply a thin layer of solution, such as medical-grade saline solution, to your skin and select the appropriate pen setting 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.
The feeling associated with the Eclipse MicroPen® is similar to light sandpaper being moved across the skin. While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating Eclipse MicroPen® tip reduces discomfort while the post-treatment hydrating gel also makes the procedure more tolerable.
The procedure takes 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the area treated.
Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin. The total healing time depends on the Eclipse MicroPen® setting used and the number of overlapping passes your skincare professional performs. On average, patients are red up to 2 to 4 days. Some patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours. Utilizing the Eclipse Dermal Rejuvenation System™, or other quality skincare products, provided by your skincare provider, can help to speed up the post-care process.
Patients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several days and weeks. Results continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment.
Some patients only 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 spaced about 6-8 weeks apart. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars, your skin care provider may recommend 6-8 sessions at 6 week intervals.
