“The Eclipse MicroPen® Elite is fantastic! I was in no pain, and I could go back to work on the same day. After a few days, my skin was so soft, and the texture had improved dramatically.” – Kathleen Y.
Automated micro-needling (also known as Epidermal Collagen Induction Therapy or ECIT) is a new innovation in aesthetics to treat the appearance of fine lines, acne scars, and the skin’s texture, tone, and color. During this procedure, the Eclipse MicroPen® Elite is used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin to aid in the production of collagen and elastin. The skin’s repair process results in a thicker Dermis with a softer appearance of wrinkles.
Reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, improved skin tone and texture and softer, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. MicroPen® Elite can help improve the appearance of hyper-pigmentation as well as uneven skin tone, acne scars, traumatic scars, and stretch marks.

MicroPen® Elite can be used on all parts of the body, including the: face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen, and back.
A sterile cartridge-tip containing 12 tiny micro-tips is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen® Elite. Your skincare professional will apply a thin layer of topical gel to your skin and select the appropriate treatment pen seeing based on your unique needs. Next, in a single motion, the pen will be gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered.
The feeling associated with the Eclipse MicroPen® Elite is similar to sandpaper being moved across the skin. While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating cartridge tip makes the treatment more comfortable.
The procedure takes 15-30 minutes, depending on the size of the area treated.
Immediately after the treatment, you will notice a bright redness to the skin. The total recovery time depends on the position of the pen, and the number of overlapping passes your skincare professional performs. On average, patients are red for 2-4 days. Some patients heal completely in 24 hours. Utilizing the Eclipse Dermal Recovery System™ post-treatment can speed up the healing process.
Patients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several weeks. Results can continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment as collagen production continues.
Some patients only require a single treatment once a 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 concerns about deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars, it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 6-week intervals.
