Eclipse MicroPen EVO™, microneedling fights acne scars

Our skin tells the story of our lives: fun in the sun, acne breakouts, and our age all show on our faces. Acne can leave facial scars that affect your complexion for years after the initial breakouts have disappeared. Sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and loose skin can make us look older than we are. For patients who want to erase acne scars and the signs of aging from their complexion, Khrom Dermatology & Aesthetics in Brooklyn, New York, is proud to offer microneedling treatment with the Eclipse MicroPen EVO™, FDA-approved medical-grade microneedling device.


Eclipse MicroPen By Khrom

The science behind Eclipse MicroPen EVO™ and why it works

The MicroPen EVO™ by Eclipse is a microneedling device used to generate thousands of “micro-injuries” in the skin through ultra-fine needles that are strategically placed on your skin. These tiny needles create microscopic channels in the epidermal and dermal layers, stimulating your body’s natural healing processes. On the superficial epidermal layer, areas of hyperpigmentation (melanocytes) and scarring (keratinocytes) are targeted for a more even, smooth texture and tone. In the deeper dermal layer, fibroblasts boost the production of collagen and elastin fibers that provide a youthful, supportive network that helps promote tight, elastic skin that looks and feels younger. The wound repair process that is stimulated by the treatment has three phases:

  • Phase 1 - Inflammation: in this phase, the microneedles piercing the skin stimulates your immune system, bringing health-promoting cells to the area to remove debris and disinfect the wound while increasing blood flow to the site and starting the process of new tissue formation
  • Phase 2 - Proliferation: in this phase, new granulation cells rebuild the area that the wound was created, and a network of new blood vessels forms to optimize nutrient delivery to the area
  • Phase 3 - Remodeling: in this final phase, the wound is repaired, and new tissues and blood vessels replace the injured tissue. The treatment is designed to minimize cellular damage and keep the skin structure intact while remodeling scar tissue for a smoother, more even complexion and overall skin rejuvenation.

What can the MicroPen EVO™ treat?

The MicroPen EVO™ has been cleared by the FDA to reduce acne scars. However, due to the way the device promotes healing and regeneration in the skin, patients treated with the MicroPen EVO™ can also see an improvement in issues such as:
  • Sun damage
  • Hyperpigmentation due to age or sun exposure
  • Stretch marks
  • Uneven skin tone or texture
  • Large pores
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

Benefits of MicroPen EVO™ microneedling

Microneedling is an incredibly popular treatment, and for a good reason: it works! The MicroPen EVO™ has had many benefits with over 800,000 patient cases since 2013; the Eclipse MicroPen EVO™ speaks for itself. The Eclipse MicroPen EVO™ is:

  • Safe: the Eclipse MicroPen EVO™ is an FDA-approved microneedling device
  • Effective: the device has been clinically proven to treat facial acne scars in patients ages 22 and older
  • Affordable: the treatment is an affordable way to combat acne scars and the signs of aging
  • Non-invasive: the Eclipse MicroPen EVO™ achieves remarkable results without scalpels, sutures, or extended downtime
  • Uses your body’s healing mechanisms: rather than using external creams, surgical treatments, toxins, or heat to promote younger, healthier-looking skin, the treatment harnesses your body’s natural healing mechanisms to achieve terrific results that last.
  • Comfortable: we can use a topical anesthetic before your treatment to keep you comfortable during the procedure, and most patients report just feeling the vibration of the Eclipse MicroPen EVO™ while they are undergoing treatment
  • Minimal downtime: you can typically go back to your normal activities right away, and any side effects from the treatment such as redness and swelling usually subside within a few days
  • Versatile: the Eclipse MicroPen EVO™ is safe and effective on all skin types and can be used on many different parts of the body – the face, neck, arms, hands, legs, back, abdomen, and décolletage
  • Customizable: the needles in the Eclipse MicroPen EVO™ can be adjusted to different lengths depending on your specific skin and desired results

In addition, the Eclipse MicroPen EVO™ can be used in conjunction with Hyaluronic Acid (HA), Vitamins, Peptides or Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to enhance the rejuvenation and revitalization effects from treatment synergistically. HA is a sugar compound naturally found in the body. It helps to boost hydration and youthful volume in the skin, to combat the signs of aging. PRP is derived from a small sample of your blood. The blood is spun in a specialized machine to create a nutrient-rich concentrate, which stimulates your skin’s natural healing processes and promotes healthy, youthful-looking skin. During the Eclipse MicroPen EVO™ microneedling process, tiny channels are created in the skin. These channels encourage the absorption of the compounds within the deeper skin layers, having a more pronounced effect. Our skin care specialists help you determine if one of these options is appropriate for your specific needs and desired results.

Is Eclipse MicroPen EVO™ microneedling right for me?

The Eclipse MicroPen EVO™ has been approved by the FDA for use in patients ages 22 years and older and is used by prescription only from a qualified healthcare provider. It is an excellent option for patients seeking an affordable and effective way to treat early acne scars and the signs of sun exposure and aging. If you have an active acne breakout or open wound or are prone to cold sores or other types of herpes simplex outbreaks, another kind of treatment might be a better option for you.

In addition, if you have sunburned skin in the area that will be treated, please get in touch with us before your appointment.

What to expect during your treatment?

For 24 hours before your treatment, you will need to avoid sun exposure and use of topical products that contain retinol, vitamin A, or alpha hydroxy acids. Before your treatment, we may apply a numbing ointment for your comfort. We will customize the device settings to your specific skin thickness and treated area and then gently sweep the device across the treatment area. The whole treatment typically only takes about 30 minutes. After your treatment is complete, we will place a soothing gel on your face to help prevent your skin from becoming dried out.

Results and aftercare

You should expect some redness (similar to a sunburn) after treatment, and your skin may also experience some swelling, tightness, itching, peeling, dryness, roughness, tenderness, burning, or discomfort for a few days after your treatment. We will go over what to expect in detail before your treatment and over your aftercare instructions with you to ensure that you achieve the maximum benefits from the procedure with minimal downtime. That may include using a post-treatment skin care regimen designed to support your skin’s health after the procedure.

In general, excessive perspiration or strenuous exercise is not recommended for 72 hours after your treatment, and you should also avoid sun exposure.

Patients typically achieve the best results if they undergo a series of treatments – around three treatments spaced 30 days apart. We will consult with you to help you determine what your best treatment plan is based on your individual skin care needs and goals.
