We offer micro-needling treatments with the Eclipse MicroPen ™, which can be used to treat acne scarring, fine lines, wrinkles, and stretch marks.

What is MicroPen ™ micro-needling?
This rejuvenating treatment uses a process known as automated micro-needling (or Collagen Induction Therapy) to provide an improvement in the appearance of fine lines, acne scarring, wrinkles, and the overall texture and quality of the skin. The MicroPen ™ is used to create micro-channels in the surface of the skin that triggers the body’s natural healing response and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. These micro-channels also allow for better absorption of topical skin care products, which enhances their benefits and helps improve the quality and appearance of the skin.
How long does a treatment session last?
Our MicroPen ™ treatment sessions can usually be completed within 30-45 minutes depending on the size of the designated treatment area.
What areas of the body can be treated by MicroPen™?
Micro-needling treatments with the MicroPen™ can be performed on most areas of the body, including the:
How many treatments will I need?
Many of our patients experience the best results of Eclipse MicroPen ™ micro-needling treatments with a series of three to four treatment session scheduled six to eight weeks apart. Patients who are interested in addressing more severe sign of age, acne scarring, and/or stretch marks may require up to six to eight treatment sessions scheduled at six week intervals in order to achieve optimal results. Other patients may benefit from a single maintenance treatment scheduled once a year. Our team will help create a customized micro-needling treatment plan to address your skin concerns and help you achieve your desired results.
What results can I expect?
Immediately following your treatment session, your skin will appear more luminous and will have a “glow”. Noticeable changes in the tone, texture, and quality of your skin typically develop over the next several days and weeks after your treatment session. Your results can continue to improve and develop for up to six months after your micro-needling treatment session. Individual results may vary.
