What is microneedling?
Performed under the supervision of a physician, automated microneedling is a new innovation to aesthetic dermatology for the improvement of facial acne scars and other skin surface irregularities. During this treatment, the microneedling device creates thousands of controlled micro-injuries to initiate the skin’s natural wound repair process resulting in an improvement in the appearance of facial acne scars.
The Eclipse MicroPen EVO™ is an FDA-cleared Class II device that is ergonomically designed to give the medical provider the optimal control, precise depth of penetration and uniform tissue interaction compared to other microneedling devices.
Intended Use: The Eclipse MicroPen EVO is a microneedling device and accessories intended to be used as a treatment to improve the appearance of facial acne scars in adults aged 22 years or older.
How does it work?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that treats facial acne scars. The technique involves using an automated stamping pen that utilizes multiple tiny, sterile needles to puncture the skin and cause a controlled injury to the tissue. This stimulates the collagen in the dermis, a deeper layer of skin, to remodel and produce a healthier appearance to skin from the inside out. Microneedling may help address many skin-related issues, including facial acne scars.
While a relatively new procedure, the reported high efficacy, safety, and post-treatment recovery rates has made it popular for both aesthetic medical providers and their patients.
Ideal results are typically achieved after multiple sessions over the course of several months, however, most patients report improvement after the first procedure.
“Microneedling is an affordable option. It is safe, it is effective, and I have really good results. I think patients like the ability the next day to get on with their normal life, wear makeup, and they can cover it up. And it definitely does not have a lot of the side effects and risks that we see with more aggressive energy-based devices.”
