Softer, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging
Automated Micro-needling is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for the treatment of the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars and the improvement of skin’s texture, tone and colour. Achieve softer, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging.*
How Micro-needling Works
During the procedure, the Eclipse MicroPen is used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to aid in the production of collagen and elastin.
The skin’s natural repair process results in a softer appearance of wrinkles. Micro-needling creating micro-channels, allowing topical gels, creams, and serums to be absorbed more effectively, enhancing the effect in deeper layers of the skin.
Eclipse MicroPen can be used on all parts of the body including face, neck, decollete, arms, hands, legs, abdomen, and back.
What To Expect
Micro-needling can improve the appearance of uneven skin tone, acne, scars, and stretch marks. It also helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while improving skin texture, tone, and colour*.
After the treatment, you will notice an immediate “red glow” to your skin. Over the course of several weeks, visible changes to the skin will develop. Results can continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment.

Benefits Of Micro-needling*
Affordable and effective
Safe for most skin types
A sterile cartridge containing 12 tiny micro-points is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen. Sterile saline will be applied to your skin and the appropriate pen position will be selected 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
Does the Procedure Hurt?
The feeling of the Eclipse MicroPen is similar to sandpaper being moved across your skin. While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating tip makes the treatment more comfortable.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Many patients only require a single treatment once a year to see optimal results. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive 2-3 treatments spaced around 6-8 weeks apart. If you have more significant skin care concerns, including acne scars, it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 6 week intervals.
How Long Does The Procedure Take?
The procedure takes 15-10 minutes depending on the size of the area treated.
Is There Any Recovery Time?
On average, patients experience redness for 2-4 days. Some patients heal completely within 24 hours. The total healing time depends on the pen position used and the number of overlapping passes performed.
