What is automated Micro-Needling with Infusion?
Automated Micro-Needling (a.k.a. Epidermal Collagen Induction Therapy or ECIT) is a new 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.
What are the benefits?
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.
What areas of the body can I treat?
Eclipse MicroPen® Elite can be used on all parts of the body: face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.
How is the procedure done?
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.
What does it feel like?
The feeling associated with the Eclipse MicroPen® Elite is similar to sandpaper being moved across the skin. While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating tip makes the treatment more comfortable. Numbing agents are also used to make the treatment more comfortable for some patients.
How long does the procedure take?
The procedure takes 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the area treated.
