FAQs About the Eclipse MicroPen Elite

acne scar treatment dallasThe Eclipse MicroPen Elite is an innovative anti-aging treatment available at some state-of-the-art medical spas. This medical-grade micro-needling device can produce dramatic improvements in common problem areas of the skin. If you’re dissatisfied with signs of aging or skin damage, you can talk to a medical spa provider to find out if the Eclipse MicroPen treatment is right for you.

What can it do?
Micro-needling is a safe, effective way to rejuvenate the skin and support a youthful appearance. The Eclipse MicroPen Elite is capable of improving these areas:

  • Skin texture
  • Skin softness
  • Skin tone

Micro-needling can reduce the appearance of the following cosmetic concerns.

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Stretch marks
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Acne scars
  • Traumatic scars

How does it work?
Micro-needling is non-surgical, non-ablative therapy that creates very tiny “channels” in the skin with the use of fine needles. This precisely controlled process triggers the production of collagen and elastin, and new capillaries. The increased production of these essential ingredients for skin health is responsible for the dramatic benefits of the Eclipse MicroPen Elite.

Where can it be used?
Micro-needling is often performed on the face, since the signs of aging here are usually the most bothersome for individuals. But it’s actually safe to use virtually anywhere. Your provider could use it on your:

  • Back
  • Abdomen
  • Legs
  • Arms
  • Hands
  • Décolletage
  • Neck

What will the treatment feel like?
Treatment with the Eclipse MicroPen is well-tolerated. The provider applies a hydrating gel to the area to improve comfort level. It’s normal to feel a mild prickling or scraping sensation during the treatment. This will resolve quickly, as most treatment sessions are only about 30 to 45 minutes long.

Is there any downtime required?
There aren’t any activity restrictions, but you might want to stay at home for a day anyway. This is because the treated areas of skin will turn red. Sometimes, redness resolves in just 24 hours.
