Automated Micro-Needling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT) is a remarkable innovation in aesthetic medicine for treating the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and improvement of the skin’s overall appearance.
During this procedure, tiny needles are used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to naturally produce collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in improvement of the appearance of softer wrinkles. Automated micro-needling also creates superficial micro-channels which can be used with topical gels, creams and serums to help improve the appearance of the epidermal layer of the skin.
Eclipse MicroPen™ is the most advanced medical-grade automated micro-needling device on the market. Look for an Eclipse MicroPen™ professional in your area now.
How Is MicroPen™ Different From Dermal Needling Rollers?
Automated micro-needling devices move in a vertical direction for better precision when treating the skin. Unlike Automated Micro-needling the roller does not create a precise vertical action.
The lack of precision can contribute to greater discomfort and inconsistent effects to the skin.
How Is MicroPen™ Different From Lasers?
Unlike lasers, Eclipse MicroPen™ breaks up pigment mechanically and stimulates the collagen formation without heat. Removing heat from the equation makes for a safer, more comfortable treatment with a very low complication rate.
No heat also equals less downtime! Most Eclipse MicroPen™ patients are red for 24 hours or less. That advantage means you can get the procedure performed on a Friday and be back to normal for work on Monday.
How Is The Procedure Done?
A sterile needle-tip containing 12 tiny micro-needles is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen™. Your skincare professional will apply a thin layer of topical Hyaluronic Acid gel (OR if you choose to MAXIMIZE COLLAGEN GROWTH potential your own PLATELET RICH PLASMA) to your skin and select the appropriate treatment depth setting based on your skin’s unique needs.
Next, the pen will be gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding until the entire treatment area has been covered in three different planes. This process results in thousands of superficial microscopic channels throughout the entire treatment area. Each of these microchannels opens a pathway for the hyaluronic acid to get into the deeper levels of your skin and stimulate healing. If you choose your own PLATELET RICH PLASMA then the healing factors it contains will stimulate influx of many more healing factors that will supercharge collagen formation.
