“Reduced acne marks appearances and now my face looks more even.” Beautologie Patient
Micro-needling with MicroPen®
What is Automated Micro-Needling?
Automated micro-needling (also known as collagen induction therapy or CIT) is a revolutionary tool that can aid in reduced appearance of fine lines, acne scars and improve the skin’s overall appearance. During your session, the Eclipse MicroPen® technician creates controlled micro-injuries to the skin. This encourages the production of collagen and elastin which helps your skin bounce or snap back into a more youthful condition. An additional benefit allows the creation of microchannels that allows penetration and absorption of topical serums, creams and gels. Automated micro-needling also creates superficial micro-channels which can be used with topical gels, creams and serums to help improve the appearance of the skin. Eclipse MicroPen® is the most advanced medical-grade automated micro-needling device on the market and the providers at Beautologie are trained to get the optimal results.
