Have you been looking for an effective way to firm and brighten your skin? Microneedling can increase collagen levels to make skin smoother and more even. It also improves skin health and reduces the appearance of textural and pigmentation issues. Microneedling lets you restore a more youthful appearance, and it requires little to no downtime.
What is Microneedling with Eclipse MicroPen® EVO?
Microneedling has been referred to as collagen induction therapy. It uses tiny needles to create microchannels in the skin. These channels trigger a healing and repair response. They also promote collagen production. Collagen, which forms the structural support for the skin, decreases with age, but microneedling can restore it to more youthful levels. As a result, skin looks firmer, smoother, and more even. We brought Eclipse MicroPen® EVO to Willow Aesthetic to provide you with optimal results.
How Does Microneedling Work?
During microneedling with Eclipse MicroPen® EVO, tiny needles enter the skin to a precisely controlled depth. The microchannels created in the skin begin a healing process that brings bright, healthy new cells to the surface. At the same time, cells called fibroblasts begin producing more collagen. This collagen adds to the skin’s support network, lifting and tightening it. Increased collagen production gives you long-lasting results that improve over time. Your Willow Aesthetics medically trained professional has the skill to perform the treatment safely and maximize your results.
How Long Does it Take to See Results From Microneedling?
Microneedling results take time to appear. You may notice improvements in skin texture and tone within a few weeks. You will start to see the results of new collagen production in a few weeks to a month. Most people need three microneedling sessions to achieve maximum collagen generation, and you will see a boost in your results after each treatment.
What Does Microneedling Eclipse MicroPen® EVO Treat?
Microneedling with Eclipse MicroPen® EVO offers a highly effective way to treat a wide range of skin concerns. This ability makes it an excellent choice for those who want to achieve younger-looking skin. Microneedling treats skin issues, including:

We recommend a consultation to find out if microneedling with Eclipse MicroPen® EVO can address your skin issues and help you achieve your aesthetic goals. Your Willow Aesthetics team will customize a treatment plan based on your needs.
Is There Any Downtime After Microneedling?
You may notice that your skin looks red and feels sensitive for a day or two after microneedling. Many people compare the feeling and appearance to a sunburn. The microchannels heal very rapidly. Your skin will be sensitive to harsh products or chemicals as it heals, so use gentle cleansers and products recommended by your treatment team. Protecting your skin from the sun will keep UV rays from damaging your developing collagen.
Am I a Good Candidate for Microneedling with Eclipse MicroPen® EVO?
Unlike some lasers, microneedling is safe for all skin types and tones. Good candidates want to achieve a brighter, firmer appearance with minimal downtime. Most people make good candidates for this treatment, although it may not be right for those who have an infection in the treatment area or have a tendency to form abnormal scars.
