Skin Needling – LAB Skin Clinic
Using the latest and most advanced turbo-powered Micro-Pen plus 99% pure growth factors, this skin needling procedure, commonly referred to as Micro-Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), significantly boosts collagen and elastin production and produces the most dramatic improvements in skin rejuvenation.
The goal is to achieve renewed, healthier-looking skin. The appearance of fine lines can be reduced as new skin replaces old. Repeating this process several times per year and combining it with a healthy skincare regimen can dramatically improve your skin health.

BEFORE & AFTER SKIN NEEDLING TREATMENTS
PHOTOS have not been altered. Results will vary from patients according to age & health status
Skin-Needling treatments work by reprogramming the function of the skin to make it healthier, firmer and more smoothly textured. It is a genuine rejuvenation process. The skin’s natural regeneration of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid is restored and increased, without the risk of side effects sometimes associated with other treatments such as laser or IPL. The treatment is minimally invasive and recognised worldwide as also being highly effective in treating photo-aged conditions, wrinkles, enlarged pores and scarring.
It is successful because the deliberate controlled trauma, created by the 12 superfine needles penetrating the skin at a super fast rate, naturally stimulates the physiological healing process and allows corneotherapeutic skin nutrients to infuse deep into the skin layers supporting skin function from inside out.
As the needle creates a micro-channel in the skin’s surface, the protective healing response is triggered. Capillaries dilate to allow clotting factors (platelets) to enter the injured tissue. Platelets release growth factors that emit cytokines (chemical signals) into the surrounding tissue to attract further immune cells like neutrophils and macrophages. These cells migrate to the site of injury releasing a cascade of growth factors and cytokines to stimulate new blood vessel development.
This in turn stimulates fibroblast proliferation and significantly boosts collagen and elastin production. The tiny micro-channels in the skin caused by the hair fine needles will close within minutes, thus the skin’s protective upper layer remains uncompromised. Remodelling and realignment of the new collagen will increase substantially after three weeks. Depending upon the client’s age and lifestyle, it will take about 3 to 6 months for the full effect of the treatment to be evident.
How this Micro-Pen is different to other pens on the market
The Eclipse Micro-Pen uses 12 very fine, stainless steel needles in a disposable cartridge that vertically pierce the skin. These diminutive vertical micro-channels create minor trauma, which encourage the skin’s own natural healing response. These patented needle tips are produced in the USA in the most sterile conditions.
The higher speed of the Eclipse Micro-Pen and the vertical needle movement uniquely enables a comfortable treatment without the high level of pain that has previously been associated with derma-rollers and other skin needling procedures.
The easy hand-piece dial adjusts the needle depth to between 0.25mm and 3mm, This enables customisation, according to the client’s skin condition. Excellent results are achieved up to 2mm needle depth; over 2mm is performed by a trained and experienced dermal aestheticians.
Safe: No Cross-Contamination
The Advanced Micro Needle Cartridges are made for single use and boast a number of advantages including patented Bio-Sleeve technology and disposable pen sleeves to prevent cross-contamination. The Bio-Sleeve feature is pivotal to the safety of patients as it allows us to perform a treatment in complete confidence. Fluids, serums and blood generated during the procedure will not penetrate the cartridge and enter the body of the pen device, significantly eliminating the risk of cross contamination.
- German motor and engineering with CE certification.
- Adjustable needle depth within a treatment for targeted results. For example: a deeper 3mm depth may be required for scarring or pitting on the cheeks whilst a shallower depth can be used for the delicate eye area.
- Lightweight and easily glides across skin
