Microneedling is an innovative treatment for the appearance of fine lines, acne scars, and the improvement of the skin’s texture, tone, and colour. Microneedling with the Eclipse MicroPen is the process of using fine needles to puncture the skin to a controlled depth. This stimulates the healing process and leads to the formation of new collagen and elastin, which are essential for plumping the skin, increasing blood flow to the face and making the skin more elastic and firm. Microneedling is an effective treatment for acne scarring, pigmented lesions, fine lines and wrinkles, hair growth stimulation, skin tightening, and stretch marks. The result is a natural glow with less downtime and lasting results.
What to expect?
Before the appointment, a topical numbing treatment is applied to minimize discomfort. Microneedling works by making tiny punctures with tiny sterilized needles in the first layer of skin. It is this controlled damage that stimulates the healing process. Medical microneedling temporarily penetrates and wounds the skin to stimulate the healing process.
How long does the Eclipse MicroPen last?
The day of your treatment, your skin will be flushed and pink for around 12 hours. The day after treatment, you’ll notice skin that is more plump and has a beautiful glow, with many patients returning to daily activity (including makeup application) after 24 hours.
