What is Micro-needling?

Automated Micro-needling ( also known as Epidermal Collagen Induction Therapy or ECIT) is a new innovation in esthetics medicine for the treatment of the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and the improvement of the skin’s texture, tone and colour. During this procedure, the Eclipse MicroPen is used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to aid in the production of collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker epidermis with a softer appearance of wrinkles. Eclipse MicroPen also creates micro-channels which allows topical gels, creams and serums to be absorbed more effectively, enhancing the effects in the deeper layers of the skin.

What are the benefits?

Reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, improved skin tone and texture and softer, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging.

How is the procedure done?

A sterile cartridge containing 12 tiny micro-points is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen. Your skin care professional will start with topical numbing cream, once the skin is numb, a topical saline will be applied based on your skins 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.

What is the downtime?

Immediately after the treatment you will notice the skin will be red and flushed in appearance, comparable to a mild sunburn, but the redness should subside within a few hours. For the first week, you may notice dryness and experience mild flakiness.

When will I see results?

Clients will notice an immediate “glow” to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several weeks.

How many treatments will I need?

For optimal results, we recommend 2-3 treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart. For clients with more significant skin care concerns, such as acne scars, it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions in 6 week intervals.
