Automated micro-needling (also known as epidermal collagen induction therapy or ECIT) is a procedure that can help treat the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and the skin’s overall appearance. Micro-Needling can also have a positive effect on the appearance of hyper-pigmentation, and stretch marks creating a fresher appearance or glow to the skin. During this procedure, the Eclipse MicroPen® is used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to produce collagen and elastin. Eclipse MicroPen® is the most advanced medical-grade automated micro-needling device on the market. 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.
