Microneedling is a safe and effective anti-aging treatment that has stood the test of time for over 15 years. Using newer instruments like the Eclipse Micro-Pen, we are able to stimulate your skin to repair itself by prompting collagen production and facilitate better product absorption. This allows active ingredients are directly supplied to the deeper layers of the skin.
A painless procedure with a simple goal, more collagen = better skin.

What are the benefits?
The benefits of micro-needling can include a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. Eclipse MicroPen® can also have a positive effect on the appearance of hyper-pigmentation, dark spots, acne scars and stretch marks and create a fresher appearance or glow to the skin.
What areas of the body can be treated?
Eclipse MicroPen® can be used on all parts of the body; face, neck, decollete, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.
How is the procedure done?
A sterile cartridge tip containing 12 points is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen®. Your skincare professional will apply a thin layer of solution, such as medical-grade saline solution, to your skin and select the appropriate pen setting 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.
What does it 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 Eclipse MicroPen® tip reduces discomfort while the post-treatment hydrating gel also makes the procedure more tolerable.
How long does the procedure take?
The procedure takes 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the area treated.
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.
