Automated Micro-Needling (Also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for the treatment of fine lines, acne scars, sun damage, irregular texture, and uneven skin tone. Eclipse MicroPen also has a positive effect on hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation, trauma scars, and stretch marks.
How Collagen Induction Therapy Works
A sterile applicator containing 12 tiny micro-needles is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen. A thin layer of topical gel will be applied to the skin prior to the pen being gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered. During the procedure the tiny needles are used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to produce collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker dermis. The micro-channels created in the skin allow topical gels, creams and serums to be absorbed optimally, enhancing their effect in the deeper layers of the skin.
