FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW DOES MICRO-NEEDLING WORK?
Automated micro-needling is an innovation in aesthetics for the treatment of the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and the skin’s texture, tone and color.
A sterile cartridge containing 12 points is attached to the micro-needle. Your skincare professional will apply a thin layer of sterile saline to your skin and select the appropriate pen setting 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 benefits of micro-needling can include a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. Micro-needling may also has a positive effect on the appearance of hyper-pigmentation, hypo-pigmentation, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks and generally creates a fresher appearance or glow to the skin.
The feeling associated with the Eclipse MicroPen® is similar to light sandpaper being moved across the skin. While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating tip reduces discomfort while the applied hydrating gel also makes the treatment more tolerable.
WHAT AREAS OF THE BODY CAN BE TREATED?
Eclipse MicroPen® can be used on all parts of the body, including the: face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.
HOW LONG DOES MICRONEEDLING TAKE?
The procedure takes 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the area treated.
WHAT IS DOWNTIME AFTER MICRONEEDLING?
Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin. The total healing time depends on the setting used and the number of overlapping passes your skincare professional performs. On average, patients are red up to 2 to 4 days. Many patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours. Utilizing the quality skincare products, provided by your skincare provider, can help to speed up the healing process.
