Commonly Asked Questions:
What device do we use to perform this treatment?
We use the Eclipse MicroPen.
What parts of the body can this procedure be done on?
Eclipse MicroPen can be used on all parts of the body; face, neck, decollete, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.
What does it feel like?
It feels similar to light sandpaper being moved across the skin. While some areas are more sensitive than others.
What is the downtime?
Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin. On average, clients are red up to 2 to 4 days. Some patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours.
When will I see results?
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.
How many treatments are needed?
Some patients only require a single treatment, once per 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 deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars we may recommend 6-8 sessions at 6 week intervals.
