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 Elite® can also have a positive effect on the appearance of hyper-pigmentation, brown spots, acne scars and stretch marks. It can also create a fresher appearance or glow to the skin.
A sterile cartridge tip containing 12 points is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen Elite®. Your skincare professional will apply a thin layer of Eclipse MicroGlide HA. Hyaluronic acid is a gelatinous carbohydrate that helps to promote the conditions for collagen production, and plumps and hydrates the skin. Next, your esthetician will select the appropriate pen setting based on your unique needs 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 Elite® is similar to light sandpaper being moved across the skin. While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating MicroPen Elite® tip reduces discomfort while the post-treatment hydrating gel also makes the procedure more tolerable.
There is little to no downtime reported by patients. Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin. The total healing time depends on the Eclipse MicroPen Elite® 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 post treatment kit containing quality skincare products, provided by your skincare provider, can help to speed up the post-care process.
