How is the procedure done?
A sterile needle-tip (no cross infection as we use disposable needles) containing12 micro-needles is attached to the Eclipse Micro Pen. Your skin professional will apply a thin layer of topical gel/serum to your skin and select the appropriate treatment depth based on your unique needs. The pen will be gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered.
What does it feel like?
The feeling associated with the Eclipse Micro Pen is similar to sandpaper being moved across the skin. While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating needle tip makes the treatment comfortable.

Is there any downtime after treatment?
