The CIT MicroPen provides our skin care clients with an effective method for naturally revitalizing the look and feel of their skin. The MicroPen activates the natural restorative processes of the body to transform aging and damaged tissue into smoother, clearer, more vibrant skin.
If you're ready to enhance the health and appearance of your skin, visit Ageless Skin Studio.
At Ageless Skin Studio we use the Eclipse MicroPen to treat a wide range of conditions:
We can use the MicroPen™ to enhance the skin on the face, neck, décolletage, back, abdomen, arms, hands and legs.
The MicroPen device works with the body's natural immune response in a treatment called "percutaneous collagen induction therapy" (PCIT). The instrument's tiny needles penetrate the epidermis and dermis (2 outer layers of skin) in a very controlled, precise manner. These micro-injuries to the skin stimulate the body to produce new collagen and elastin - the support system of healthy skin. As the treated area heals, smoother, more even, healthier-looking skin appears.
We use CIT MicroPen to create micro-channels for applying topical treatments, such as Hyraluronic Acid(moisture) or Growth Factors(expedite the body’s own repair process and stimulate new collagen and elastin). This allows more effective absorption deeper into the skin and target issues.
What does it feel like?
Micro-Needling feels similar to sandpaper being moved across the skin. Topical numbing may be applied prior to your procedure, but no anesthesia or medications are necessary.
A sterile needle-tip containing 12 tiny micro-needles is attached to the CIT MicroPen. Your skincare professional will apply a thin layer of topical gel to your skin and select the appropriate treatment depth based on your unique needs. Next, in a single motion, the pen is gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered. Treatment time depends on the size of the treatment area and usually takes about 30 to 45 minutes.
There is no downtime to recover from the procedure, but the skin may be red and flushed, similar to a mild to moderate sunburn, for 12 hours to 3 days. You may also experience mild swelling, tightness, and/or mild peeling. Side effects are temporary and typically resolve within 3 days. Total healing time depends on the depth of the treatment, skin type, and skin condition, and some patients may heal completely in 24 hours.
Patients typically notice an immediate glow and depending on the issue being targeted, visible improvements to the treated area begin to appear over 2 to 3 weeks. Continued improvement may continue for up to 6 months following treatment.
Some patients only require 1 treatment each year for maintenance of over all skin. For optimal results, we usually perform 3-4 treatments at intervals of 4 weeks. More severe or advanced conditions, such as scars or deeper wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks can require up to 6-8 sessions spaced at 4 weeks apart.
