What is a micro pen?

A micro pen is a hand-held device that uses a sterile needle-tip with twelve tiny micro-needles to treat various skin concerns. The pen’s needles pierce the top layer of skin to stimulate cell regrowth, collagen formation and hair growth.

How is a micro pen different from dermal rollers?

Unlike rollers, which produce tearing or shearing of the skin, a micro pen uses a gentle, perpendicular force to penetrate the skin. This minimizes pain and downtime and reduces risk of infection and bruising.

How is a micro pen customized?

During a micro pen treatment, your skincare professional will apply a thin layer of topical gel to the desired area and select the proper depth. Then, in a single motion, the Eclipse MicroPen will be gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding to create a sandpaper-like sensation.

How long will my treatment last?

The Eclipse MicroPen accelerates the body’s innate healing process, causing a dramatic improvement in the appearance of your skin. Some patients see initial results immediately following their first session, while most experience a gradual improvement over months as the body naturally replaces dead cells and repairs damaged tissue.

The results of the treatment are permanent. However, regular visits to your dermatologist for maintenance treatments are recommended to keep your skin looking healthy and youthful. Side effects such as mild irritation and dryness are normal during the recovery period. Your skin may also look pink or red after treatment sessions, but this is normal and will fade over time.
