What to Expect at Your Eclipse MicroPen® EVO Appointment

When you visit your dermatology provider for an Eclipse MicroPen® EVO treatment, the session starts with a consultation to customize the procedure to your skin needs. The treatment itself, typically lasting about 30 minutes, may involve applying a topical numbing cream for comfort. You'll feel a mild vibrating sensation as the device works, similar to a light sandpaper-like feeling on the skin. Afterward, expect some redness and swelling akin to a sunburn, which usually subsides within a few days. Your provider will give aftercare instructions and discuss the number of treatments needed for the best results, generally recommending multiple sessions spaced a few weeks apart.

Eclipse MicroPen® EVO Maintenance Recommendations

To ensure the best results from your Eclipse MicroPen® EVO treatments, your dermatology provider will recommend several maintenance practices. These guidelines help extend the benefits of the procedure and keep your skin looking its best:
  • Regular Sessions: Depending on your specific skin concerns, continue with follow-up sessions as recommended by your provider, usually spaced a few weeks apart.
  • Sun Protection: Always use a broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect the skin from UV damage, especially after treatment when your skin is more vulnerable.
  • Gentle Skincare Products: Opt for mild, non-irritating skincare products to avoid exacerbating the treated area.
  • Hydration: Keep your skin hydrated by drinking plenty of water and using appropriate moisturizers.
  • Avoid Harsh Treatments: Steer clear of abrasive skin treatments or chemical peels until your provider advises that it's safe to resume them.

Eclipse MicroPen® EVO Maintenance Schedule

  • The number of maintenance sessions required for the Eclipse MicroPen® EVO depends on individual skin conditions and desired outcomes.
  • Typically, initial results are visible after the first session, but multiple sessions are often recommended for optimal results.
  • Most patients undergo 3 to 6 treatments, spaced about 4 to 6 weeks apart, depending on the treatment area and skin response.
  • After completing a full treatment cycle, occasional maintenance sessions may be necessary to preserve the results, often spaced several months apart.
  • Your dermatology provider will assess your skin's progress and advise on the best schedule to maintain your rejuvenated appearance.

FAQs about Eclipse MicroPen® EVO

From treatment of melasma and acne scars to enjoying a refreshed appearance from smoother, tighter skin, Eclipse MicroPen® EVO is quickly becoming the preferred choice for those looking to enhance their appearance without surgery or downtime from extensive aesthetic procedures. In the past, patients seeking proven collagen-boosting results could only achieve long-lasting, noticeable results through procedures administered from large, complex laser machines, usually within a series of multiple appointments. Most patients who receive Eclipse MicroPen® EVO treatments can achieve the results they want in a single visit, thanks to advanced technology harnessed into a lightweight, technology-packed, hand-held device.

Eclipse MicroPen® EVO treats age spots, blackheads, hyper-pigmentation (melasma), acne spots and scars, fine lines and wrinkles, and improves the appearance of dull, “tired-looking” skin. It can be used on the face, neck, décolleté’, arms, hands, legs, abdomen, and neck—the areas that often reveal the most tell-tale signs of aging and sun damage.

One of the most exciting perks of the Eclipse MicroPen® EVO is the immediate results patients experience. Patients can see a “glow” to their skin as soon as the procedure is finished, and visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several weeks. Results continue to improve up to six months after the treatment. Some patients only require a single treatment in one visit just once a year to achieve noticeable results. However, most dermatologists recommend that patients receive a series of two to three treatments space six to eight weeks apart for best results. For patients with significant skincare concerns, such as deep acne scars, it is recommended to receive six to eight sessions at six-week intervals.
