How Does It Work?
The Eclipse Micropen is a hand-held device with microneedles that penetrate into the skin to break up old collagen strands. This stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin fibers, oriented from the deep layers of the skin through to the surface. During the treatment, the device penetrates through the epidermis but does not remove it. Since the epidermis is only punctured, it will heal rapidly . CIT can penetrate the skin anywhere from 0.5 mm to 2mm depending on the depth of the skin condition needing remediation.

What Is the End Result?
CIT is the only skin rejuvenation treatment to target and regulate three key skin cells (keratinocyte, melanocyte and fibroblast) without compromising the integrity of the epidermis. The growth factors released through CIT results in regenerative healing (collagen forms from the base upwards) and is type III collagen or healthy collagen as opposed to the growth factors released when the epidermis is damaged by ablative or heat methods which in contrast produce cicatricial healing (collagen forms from the top down) and is type I collagen or scar collagen.
The result is younger-looking skin that is smoother, thicker, tighter with a more even tone, all achieved in the time it takes to have a lunchbreak.
