Microneedling is certainly not a new procedure to us and to the industry, as we had in the past used dermal rollers for collagen induction therapy. While we had an excellent response with this procedure, technology has improved upon it with the development of automated devices called micropens, which are delivering more precise treatments than the previously used rollers.
Treatments are about an hour from start to finish, and very comfortable due to the topical numbing cream that we use. Downtime with the Eclipse treatments is actually minimal, with some immediate redness and swelling that usually goes away within 24 hours. You may wear makeup the next day and many patients notice a glow to the skin starting several days after treatment.
For best results, a series of treatments may be recommended, and your skin will continue to improve for up to 6 months.
