MICROPEN SKIN NEEDLING
WHAT IS AUTOMATED MICROPEN SKIN NEEDLING?
Automated Micro-Needling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for the treatment 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 in order to produce collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker dermis with the appearance of softer wrinkles. Eclipse MicropenTM also creates superficial micro-channels which allow topical gels, creams and serums to be absorbed more effectively into the skin.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
The benefits of micro-needling are a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. Eclipse MicropenTM also has a positive effect on hyper-pigmentation as well as on hypo- pigmentation, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks and generally creates a fresher appearance or glow to the skin.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Although you will definitely see visible results after your first treatment, a series of 6 to 8 treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart is recommended to start, with maintenance treatments recommended every 6 to 12 weeks. The effects of Microneedling are cumulative and continuous as the skin rejuvenates naturally over several months. Your skin will continue to improve over the next 6 to 12 months after a course of treatments when you follow the recommended post-treatment care regimen.

MICROPEN TREATMENT WITH STEM CELL /EGF GROWTH FACTOR.
Skin stem cells are the direct precursors of the cells found in the different dermal layers. With the passing of time, its activity slows down: the skin loses its capacity for renewal, resulting in lack of tone and deep wrinkles. Stem Cell is a cosmeceutical line with high concentrations of plant stem cells, that has been formulated to reverse cell regeneration, slowing down and strengthening the connective tissue structure and improving skin quality and texture. The plant stem cells extract contained in stem Cell have shown their ability to effectively protect and reactivate our own dermoepidermal stem cells, carrying out a strong antiaging and antiwrinkle effect on the skin.
MicroPen™ creates a series of precise, controlled epidermal and dermal micro-injuries, thereby stimulating the body’s immune response and producing new collagen and elastin. When used to infuse growth factor, MicroPen™ enhances the outcome, increases total collagen production and accelerates healing. MicroPen™ can also be used in combination with Hyaluronic Acid and other peptide gels to hydrate and re-epithilialize or to infuse lightening agents to the needed depth.
