Eclipse MicroPen™

Are you looking for a non-invasive, long-term solution for fine lines, acne scars, or stretch marks? Do you want to revitalize the texture, tone, and color of your skin? Westwind Cosmetic & Laser Center in El Paso, Texas offers the latest innovation in aesthetic medicine – automated micro-needling, or collagen induction therapy (CIT), with the Eclipse MicroPen™.

How It Works

The Eclipse MicroPen™ is a sterile pen with a head of tiny needles that produces small perforations along the surface of the skin in a controlled and precise manner, creating micro injuries. These injuries trigger your skin to heal itself through the production of new collagen and elastin, resulting in plumper, younger-looking, more lifted skin.

The result reveals less wrinkles, scars, and stretch marks with little to no discomfort and negligible downtime. Beyond the benefits of this micro-needling process, topical skincare products can be added during the procedure, introducing nutrients and antioxidants directly into the deeper layers of the skin, reaching the cells and tissues most in need of attention.

If you have fine lines, acne or trauma scars, stretch marks, uneven skin tone, or sun damage on your face or hands, this gentle cosmetic procedure might just be for you. Call Westwind Cosmetic & Laser Center at (915) 845-4600 to request your consultation today or use our online consultation request form.

FAQs

What are the benefits of micro-needling?

The benefits of micro-needling include a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as 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. Overall, the treatment creates a fresher appearance or glow to the skin.

What areas of the body can be treated with the Eclipse MicroPen™?

Eclipse MicroPen™ can be used on all parts of the body, including the face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen, and back.

How is the procedure done?

Your aesthetician will first attach a sterile needle tip containing 12 tiny micro-needles to the Eclipse MicroPen™. Next, she will apply a thin layer of topical gel to your skin and select the appropriate treatment depth based on your unique needs. She will then gently press the pen against the skin while simultaneously gliding in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered.

Does micro-needling hurt?

The treatment feels similar to sandpaper being moved across your skin. Some areas may be more sensitive than others, but the speed of the reciprocating needle tip reduces discomfort while the applied hydrating gel also makes the treatment more tolerable.

How long does the procedure take?

Automated micro-needling usually takes about 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the size of the area treated.

Is there any downtime?

Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin. The total healing time depends on the depth of needles used and the number of overlapping passes. On average, patients are red for 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 micro-needling treatments will I need?

Some patients only require a single treatment – once per year to achieve optimal results. However, we recommend that most patients receive a series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photoaging, stretch marks, or acne scars, we recommend 6-8 treatment sessions at 6-week intervals.
