Microneedling treats the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and improvement of the skin’s overall appearance.
During this procedure, tiny needles are used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin which produce collagen and elastin: two vital compounds that keep the skin soft, smooth and youthful. The skin’s natural repair process improves the surface of the skin and softens wrinkles for a youthful appearance and rejuvenated skin.
Plan to spend 30-60 minutes depending on the size of the area treated.
We treat the following areas: face, neck, décolleté (chest), and hands.
What does the microneedling treatment feel like?
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 needle tip reduces discomfort while the applied hydrating gel also makes the treatment more tolerable.
What is the downtime?
Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin. The total healing time depends on the Eclipse MicroPen setting used and the number of overlapping passes your skincare professional performs. On average, patients are red up to 2 to 4 days. Some patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours.
When will I see results?
Clients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several days and weeks. Results continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment as collagen production continues.
How many treatments will I need?
Some clients only require a single treatment, once per year to achieve optimal results. However, it is recommended for most clients to receive a series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart. For clients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars, it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 2-4 week intervals
