Micro-needling is considered an effective long-term age spot treatment. The Eclipse MicroPen® contains tiny needles that make micro-channels to the skin that causes it to produce collagen to heal the skin making it look firmer, younger, and without age spots. We also apply certain serums, including hyaluronic acid, to aid in the process and provide enhanced results based on your needs.
What Is It?
The MicroPen® for age spot treatment was discovered by a tattoo artist who noticed that the skin produced extra collagen after the needle process. When age spots, scars, and stretch marks are removed, the result is permanent. Some of the skin conditions the MicroPen® treats are:
• Stretch marks
• Hyperpigmentation and hypopigmentation
• Fine lines and wrinkles
• Acne scars
• Age and sun spots
What to Expect

We will learn about your goals and expectations and do our best to create a plan that helps achieve the skin you want. If you are ready, we can with the age spot treatment.
Our trained technician will apply a topical numbing cream for your comfort if you desire. Then, a gel will be applied. Beside hyaluronic acid we offer vitamin C, PRP, retinol serum, and many more. The intensity of the MicroPen® will be set according to your needs and plan. Finally, the pen will glide over the areas of your skin being treated. The time it takes for one session may vary, depending on the intensity of your plan.
After the age spot treatment, it may feel like you have a mild sunburn in the treated area. This will pass in two to four days. We recommend that you avoid the sun and makeup for at least two days after the treatment to allow your skin to heal. Your skin will improve over the next few days. As your body continues to produce collagen, your skin will continue to improve for the next six months. For optimum results, we will recommend how many times you need to return for additional treatments, which may be little as once a year, and it may be a often as six to eight times a year.
