What is the Eclipse Micropen?
At Advanced Dermatology, we offer the most advanced skin resurfacing treatments available. The Eclipse Micropen is a unique automated microneedling device that can reduce fine lines, improve surface imperfections, and even out skin tone. The device contains a 12-microneedle tip, which is controlled by a high-speed motor. A safe alternative to lasers and other resurfacing devices, the Eclipse MicroPen can be used on all parts of the body.
Benefits of the Eclipse MicroPen
The Eclipse MicroPen has several advantages. Our New York City, Long Island, and New Jersey dermatologists often recommend this microneedling device because of its versatility. Some benefits of the Eclipse MicroPen include:
- Fast, effective, and well-tolerated treatments
- Safe for nearly all skin types
- Visible improvements in a matter of weeks
- Treats wrinkles, scars, hyper-pigmentation and stretch marks
- Can be used on the face, neck, arms, hands, and abdomen
Individuals with wrinkles, dark spots, and/or signs of sun damage are typically good candidates for the procedure. The pen can also treat scars and discolorations, making it an ideal option for patients looking to improve acne scars and stretch marks.
Treatment Overview and Recovery
Advanced Dermatology performs Eclipse MicroPen skin resurfacing treatments at all of our locations, including our Manhattan, Brooklyn, Nassau County and Ridgewood, New Jersey dermatology offices. Before the procedure, your dermatologist will apply a saline solution to the skin. Next, the pen is gently pressed into the treatment area. To help ensure patient comfort, a topical anesthesia may be applied to the skin. A single session typically takes between 15-30 minutes to complete.
No downtime is needed after the procedure. However, the skin will typically appear red and bright for 2-4 days, depending on the setting used.
Patients generally begin to see improvement in skin tone and texture a few weeks after treatment. As the skin continues to heal and regenerate over the course of months, the skin will become more radiant. Many patients report visible benefits after a single session, but multiple treatments may be recommended for optimal results. Individual results can vary.

The cost of a Eclipse MicroPen Elite treatment can vary, depending on the size of the treatment area and the concern that’s being addressed.

Most patients find that the treatment is tolerable, likening the experience to a light sandpaper brush over the skin. Some areas of the skin may be more sensitive than others. To help minimize discomfort, the tip speed can be adjusted during treatment.
The exact number of treatments will vary from patient to patient. Some patients see marked improvement after a single session. In general, our dermatologists recommend 2-3 sessions for minor to moderate skin damage and 6-8 sessions for more profound acne scars, stretch marks, and deep wrinkles. Treatments should be spaced about 6 weeks apart.
