What is automated Micro-Needling?*
Automated Micro-Needling (also known as Epidermal Collagen Induction Therapy or ECIT) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for the treatment of the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and the improvement of the skin’s texture, tone and color. During this procedure, the Eclipse MicroPen® is used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to aid in the production of collagen and elastin.
The skin’s repair process results in a thicker epidermis, with a softer appearance. Eclipse MicroPen® Elite also creates micro channels, which allow topical gels, creams and serums to absorb more effectively, enhancing the effects in deeper layers of the skin.
What are the benefits?
Benefits include reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improved skin tone and texture. The result is softer, younger looking skin. Micro needling also improves the appearance of uneven skin tone, acne scars, traumatic scars and strech marks.
What areas of the body can I treat?
Eclipse MicroPen® Elite can be used on all parts of the body: face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.
How is the procedure done?*
A sterile cartridge containing 12 tiny micro-points is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen® Elite. Your skin-care professional will apply sterile saline to your skin and select the appropriate pen position 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® Elite is similar to sandpaper being moved across the skin. While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating tip makes the treatment more comfortable.
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 pen position used and the number of overlapping passes your skin-care professional performs. On average, patients experience redness for 2-4 days. Some patients heal completely in 24 hours. Utilizing the Eclipse Dermal Rejuvenation System™, post treatment can aid the healing process.

As Seen In National Media
When will I see the results?*
Patients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several weeks. Results can continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment.
How many treatments will I need?*
Some patients only require a single treatment once a year to achieve optimal results. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart. For patients with more signifi cant skin-care concerns, such as acne scars, it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 6-week intervals.
What Patients Are Saying
“I look forward to every treatment, because I see results immediately. All of my friends compliment me on my skin now, and I am so happy. I have had many other treatments before to treat my acne scars, and nothing worked as well as the Eclipse MicroPen® Elite. I would highly recommend it to anyone!”

To produce Stem Growth Factors, special types of mesenchymal stem cells are cultured in the laboratory and utilized to create more of the beneficial molecules. The product doesn’t contain any cells, only the bio-signals produced are used in MicroGlide GF™. The benefits of GF are recognized for promoting skin cell proliferation and neocollagenesis.
Microneedling with PRP $600
PRP is a high concentration of platelets surrounded in its own plasma. A small amount of blood is drawn and the red cells are isolated from the platelet-rich plasma. Since the autologous PRP is processed from the patient’s own blood, there is virtually no risk of an allergic reaction or rejection.
