Collagen Induction Therapy
Microneedling has quickly become our most popular service. It is an anti-aging facial that stimulates collagen. The CIT Facial reduces acne scars, wrinkles, enlarged pores, stretch marks, and improves tone and texture. An automated micro-needling pen is used to make micro-injuries into the skin to produce collagen and elastin.
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 MicroPen™ 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 Is The Procedure Done?
A sterile needle-tip containing 12 tiny micro-needles is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen™.
Your skincare professional will apply a thin layer of topical gel to your skin and select the appropriate setting 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.
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 Eclipse MicroPen™ setting used and the number of overlapping passes your skincare professional performs. On average, patients are red up to 2 to 4 days. Some patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours.
Utilizing the Eclipse Dermal Recovery System™, or other quality skincare products, provided by your skincare provider, can help to speed up the healing process.
