How does it work?
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 sometimes use Eclipse MicroPen to create micro-channels for applying topical treatments, such as lightening agents or anti-acne products. This allows more effective absorption deeper into the skin.
What does the MicroPen help?
At Enfuse Medical Spa we use the Eclipse MicroPen to treat a wide range of conditions:
- Fine lines and moderate wrinkles
- Scars from acne, surgery or injury
- Uneven skin tone or texture
- Stretch marks
- Premature aging from sun exposure
- Skin laxity
- Actinic keratoses (thick or scaly patches; potentially pre-cancerous)
- Enlarged pores
We can use the MicroPen™ to enhance the skin on the face, neck, décolletage, back, abdomen, arms, hands and legs.
