This new micro-needling device is gaining popularity in Hollywood and patients reportedly notice an immediate "glow" to their skin. Changes to the skin develop over the course of several days and weeks and continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment as collagen production continues.
The process involves Automated Micro-Needling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT) and is used for the treatment of fine lines, acne scars and the 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 produce collagen and elastin. The skin's repair process results in a thicker dermis with the appearance of softer wrinkles. Eclipse Micropen? also creates superficial micro-channels which allow topical gels, creams and serums to be absorbed more effectively into the skin.

The MicroPen be used on all parts of the body including the neck, d?collet?, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back for reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and younger-looking skin.
Patients say it feels like having light sandpaper moved across the skin.
The procedure only takes 15 to 30 minutes depending on the size of the area treated.
