Fine Tuning and Touching Up
What is MicroPen?
The Eclipse MicroPen® is used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to produce collagen and elastin using a process known as epidermal collagen induction therapy or ECIT. It is a innovation in aesthetic medicine that can help treat the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and the skin’s overall appearance. It can be used on all parts of the body.
How Does it Work?
A sterile cartridge tip containing 12 points is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen®. HD Skinstem GF Complex (a topical solution) is them applied to your skin and based on your unique needs, appropriate pen settings will be selected. 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.
The benefits 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 as well as to create a fresher appearance or glow to the skin.

What to Expect
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 MicroPen® tip reduces discomfort while the post-treatment hydrating gel also makes the procedure more tolerable.
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 performed. . On average, patients are red up to 2 to 4 days. Some patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours
Patients 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.
