Automated Micro-Needling (a.k.a. Epidermal Collagen Induction Therapy or ECIT) is an FDA approved technique in aesthetic medicine used to treat the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and improve skin’s texture, tone and color. During the procedure, the Eclipse MicroPen® is used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin, immediately followed by an infusion of nutrients to aid and stimulate production of collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker epidermis and dermis with a softer appearance of wrinkles. Eclipse MicroPen® Elite creates micro-channels which allow topical gels, creams and serums to be absorbed more effectively, enhancing the effects in deeper layers of the skin.
Reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improved skin tone and texture and softer, younger looking skin with fewer signs of aging. Eclipse MicroPen® Elite can improve the appearance of uneven skin tone, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks.
A sterile cartridge containing 12 tiny micro-points is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen® Elite. Your skin-care professional will apply sterile saline to your skin and select the appropriate pen position 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 MicroPen® Elite, which won THE Aesthetic Industry Award for Best Micro-Needling Device, is affordable, effective, requires minimal down time and provides natural-looking results.
The procedure takes 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the area treated.
