Automated micro-needling (also known as epidermal collagen induction therapy or ECIT) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine that can help treat the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and the skin's overall appearance. During this procedure, the Micro-Needling is used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to produce collagen and elastin.
The benefits of micro-needling can include a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging. Micro-Needling can also have a positive effect on the appearance of hyper-pigmentation, dark spots, acne scars and stretch marks and create a fresher appearance or glow to the skin.
Micro-Needling can be used on all parts of the body; face, neck, decollete, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.
A sterile cartridge tip containing 12 points is attached to the MicroPen®. Your skincare professional will apply a thin layer of topical solution, such as medical-grade Saline, to your skin and select the appropriate pen setting 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 Micro-Needling is similar to light sandpaper being moved across the skin. While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating MicroPen® tip reduces discomfort while the post-treatment hydrating gel also makes the procedure more tolerable.
The procedure takes 45-60 minutes depending on the size of the area treated.
Immediately after the treatment you will notice a bright redness to the skin. The total healing time depends on the MicroPen® setting used and the number of overlapping passes your skincare professional performs. Some patients heal completely in as little as 24 hours.
Patients notice an immediate "glow" to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several days and weeks. Results continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment as collagen production continues.
Some patients only require a single treatment, once per year to achieve optimal results. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 4-6 treatments spaced about 4-6 weeks apart. For patients with deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks or acne scars, your skin care provider may recommend 6-8 sessions at 6 week intervals.
