Introduction

The Eclipse MicroPen automated micro-needling device is the most effective, reliable instrument currently available for performing Epidermal Micro Exfoliation (EME). This elegant tool can be used for the successful treatment of a variety of indications. MicroPen creates a series of predictable, controlled epidermal micro-injuries, thereby stimulating the body's removal of the dead skin layer, giving the skin a more youthful look and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Common benefits of this type of procedure recognized by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons include exfoliation of skin, improvement of age spots, and hyperpigmentation, treatment of acne scars, etc. The device is battery operated, allowing for freedom of movement without interference from an attached power cord.
