icroneedling is non-invasive skin resurfacing treatment is used to promote collagen restructuring in the dermal layers of the skin. At True Balance we offer the Eclipse MicroPen® – a handheld 12-tip micro-pen that vibrates at high power to pierce the superficial layer of your skin thousands of times over a few seconds. These piercings cause minor trauma to the epidermis which will stimulate collagen and elastin production to smooth and soften your skin.

The Eclipse MicroPen® penetrates deep into your epidermis and the upper layers of the dermis to stimulate the healing response which results in:

  • A reduction in fine lines and wrinkles
  • Immediate improvement in skin texture
  • A reduction in hyperpigmentation
  • A more even skintone
  • The elimination of acne and cystic acne
  • A reduction of pockmarks and scarring
  • A reduction of blackheads
  • General skin exfoliation for better absorption of moisturizers
