Avantia Restorative Health has partnered with Eclipse MicroPen to offer Hollywood's Best Keep Secret in Ottawa: Micro-needling. The Eclipse MicroPen is one of only a few devices approved for use by Health Canada for the treatment of the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and the improvement of the skin’s texture, tone and color, and we're excited to bring it to Ottawa!

Micro-Needling (also referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy, Dermarolling or Vampire Facial) has been described as "An Anti-Aging Miracle-Worker", and it has become one of the most popular and growing Medical Aesthetics treatments in Canada and across North America.

Micro-Needling is one of the best long term skin rejuvenation treatments today for younger looking skin! It incorporates a series of natural and effective treatments with marked improvement along the way.

This treatment is a minimally invasive method to stimulate new skin cells by using micro-needles. The skin reacts to the micro puncture by starting a wound healing cascade. Stem cells in the lowest epidermal layer are stimulated to proliferate. New cell formations are created and the skin becomes thicker. New anchor collagens re-connect the epidermis and dermis. The production of hyaluronic acid is increased and fine wrinkles are smoothed. The supply of oxygen is improved and the skin is rejuvenated.

Treatments performed in-clinic by our certified skincare specialist.

What Areas of the Body Can it Treat?

Eclipse MicroPen® can be used on all parts of the body: face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back.

How do Micro-Needling treatments work?

A sterile cartridge containing 12 tiny micro-points is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen®. Your skin-care professional will apply sterile saline to your skin and select the appropriate pen position based on your unique needs. Next, in a single motion, the pen will be gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding in one direction until the entire treatment area has been covered.

What patients are saying…

"I look forward to every treatment, because I see results immediately. All of my friends compliment me on my skin now, and I am so happy. I have had many other treatments before to treat my acne scars, and nothing worked as well as the Eclipse MicroPen®. I would highly recommend it to anyone!"

do Micro-Needling treatments Really work?

The high speed of the micro-needling pen and precision needles reduces the inflammation of the skin to an absolute minimum, the most important factor for successful micro-needling.   This is especially important for clients with rosacea to keep inflammation to a minimum.   You just feel a light prickling sensation. A lidocaine-based numbing cream is used on the treatment area to ensure a comfortable patient experience.

For acne scars, this is one of the best solutions giving amazing results without destroying the skin surface.  Collagen produced from this treatment makes your skin tighter and firmer. 

Treatments last 15-30 Minutes.

Questions About Micro-Needling?

What does it feel like?      The feeling associated with the Eclipse MicroPen® is similar to sandpaper being moved across the skin. While some areas are more sensitive than others, the speed of the reciprocating tip makes the treatment more comfortable.

How long does the procedure take?     The procedure takes 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the area treated.

What is the downtime?     Immediately after the treatment, you will notice a bright redness to the skin. The total healing time depends on the pen position used and the number of overlapping passes your skin-care professional performs. On average, patients experience redness for 2-4 days. Some patients heal completely in 24 hours. Utilizing appropriate post treatment products can aid the healing process.

When will I see the results?     Patients notice an immediate “glow” to their skin. Visible changes to the skin develop over the course of several weeks. Results can continue to improve up to 6 months after the treatment.

How many treatments will I need?      Some patients only require a single treatment once a year to achieve optimal results. However, it is recommended for most patients to receive a series of 2-3 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart. For patients with more significant skin-care concerns, such as acne scars, it is recommended to receive 6-8 sessions at 6-week intervals.
