Automated micro-needling is an innovation in aesthetics with little to no downtime. Results are comparable to more ablative laser treatments that can have downtime up to two weeks, but with this innovative treatment, patients can typically return to normal activities the following day.
Our patients can expect a reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, improved skin tone and texture and softer, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. MicroPen® Elite can also help improve the appearance of hyper-pigmentation as well as pore size, acne scars, surgery scars and stretch marks.
MicroPen® Elite can be used on all parts of the body, including the: face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back. A sterile tip containing 12 tiny microneedles is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen® Elite. The procedure starts with cleansing the skin and applying a pharmaceutical grade numbing cream. Our medical aesthetician will then apply the hyaluronic acid glide to the skin and select the appropriate treatment pen settings 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. Depending on the issues present, as well as the areas of the face, several passes may be made. Patients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin. Immediately following the treatment, skin will be red and may remain pink for several hours. Typically by the following day, skin looks normal, and regular makeup may be applied to the skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several weeks. Results can continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment. Click here to see this treatment in the media!*
Eclipse MicroPen® Elite with MicroGlide Growth Factor™
MicroGlide GF™ is the latest addition to the Eclipse MicroPen® procedure. It is specifically designed to aid in the lubrication and enhancement of the skin. MicroGlide GF™ uses mesenchymal stem cell growth factor (GF) to optimize the skin’s response to the Eclipse MicroPen® procedure. To produce Stem Growth Factors, special types of mesenchymal stem cells are cultured in the laboratory and utilized to create more of the beneficial molecules. The product doesn’t contain any cells, only the bio-signals produced are used in MicroGlide GF™. The benefits of GF are recognized for promoting skin cell proliferation and neocollagenesis.

What is automated Micro-Needling?
Automated micro-needling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT) is one of the latest aesthetic treatments for skin tone, color and texture, fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, stretch marks and surgical scars. The MicroPen creates controlled micro-injuries to the skin which increases production of elastin and collagen. This repair technique creates a softer appearance of wrinkles, thicker epidermis and tightened skin.
What are the benefits?
The MicroPen Elite™ evens fine lines and wrinkles, improves skin tone and texture and softer, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. MicroPen Elite™ drastically improves or completely removed deep acne scarring and surgical scars, hyper-pigmentation as well as uneven skin tone and stretch marks.
How does it work to fill in acne scars and wrinkles?
The MicroPen creates micro-injuries in the skin that alerts the skin’s natural healing process. Immediately after the treatment, the skin begins to produce collagen and elastin to start filling in the divots in the skin and poc marks to even the surface of the skin. Patients see a difference with one treatment and very significant improvement within 3 treatments. Depending on the severity of the scarring, it may take 6-8 treatments, while some will be finished in 3 treatments. The process is very similar with wrinkles in that the collagen will create a filling to even the skin surface and the elastin will also help to pull and tighten the skin.
Does the MicroPen Elite™ treat colored stretch marks too?
Yes! As one of the few devices on the market that can literally dissolve stretch marks – both white and purple, with little to no downtime, the Eclipse MicroPen™ is the ideal treatment for stretch marks. Most stretch marks are located on areas of the body where you cannot afford to have lasting discomfort or raw skin. With the Eclipse MicroPen™, you will get the best results, but still be able to move comfortable and continue moving on with your life while getting rid of those stretch marks that have been bothering you for years!
What areas of the body can I treat?
The MicroPen Elite™ can be used on the entire body. Many clients treat their face, but other popular areas are neck, décolleté, c-section scars, breast augmentation or lift scars or upper back.
How is the procedure done?
The medical aesthetician will apply a topical gel to assist in gliding the MicroPen across the skin. The sterile cartiridge-tip contains 12 tiny micro-tips which are pulsed at a fast rate into the skin. The aesthetician will proceed with gliding the MicroPen across all areas being treated until the entire area is covered.
What does it feel like?
Many clients compare the Eclipse MicroPen Elite™ to the feeling of Microdermabrasion. Some areas of the treatment are more sensitive than others, but with the use of a topical numbing cream, the treatment is very tolerable. Most clients do not describe it as painful.
How long does the procedure take?
Depending on the size of the area, it will typically take 15-45 minutes for each treatment.
What is the downtime?
The skin is typically bright red immediately following the treatment. Depending on the depth of the treatment, the number of passes completed, typically patients experience redness for less than one day. Much unlike Co2 or Fractional lasers, the healing process is very quick for the MicroPen. Some patients experience complete healing in 24 hours. Nothing may be applied to the skin for the remainder of the day of treatment. Starting the 2nd day, patients may use recommended post-procedure products and begin using makeup.
When will I see the results?
Results are immediate. Just after the treatment, patients experience a “glow” to the skin. Over the course of several weeks as collagen and elastin production is increased, visibible changes to the skin appear. Dark spots, wrinkles, fine lines and acne scars are dramatically reduced and may completely disappear. The results can continue to improve over 6 months.
How many treatments will I need?
Some patients only require one treatment once per year for optimal results, however it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 2-3 treatments about 4-8 weeks apart. For very advanced photo-aging, deep wrinkles, stretch marks or acne, 6-8 sessions 4-6 weeks apart would be recommended.
