Does Microneedling actually work?
WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING OR REJUVENATING TREATMENT WITH MICRO NEEDLES?
It is a very simple, safe, effective and minimally invasive therapeutic technique. It was initially introduced for skin rejuvenation, however, it is now used for a wide range of indications that include acne scar, acne, post-traumatic scar / burn, alopecia, skin rejuvenation, medication administration, hyperhidrosis, stretch marks and many others. In addition, during the last 10 years, many innovations have been made in the initial instrument, which was used for micro-needles. This technique can be combined with other surgical techniques to provide better results. In particular, it is a very safe technique for dark skin types, where the risk of post-inflammatory pigmentation is very high with other techniques that damage the epidermis. In this review article, we are updating the different instruments now available for this procedure.
WHAT IS THE SCIENTIFIC ORIGIN OF THE EFFECTIVENESS OF REJUVENATING TREATMENT WITH MICRO NEEDLES?
“ The micropuntas are created using micro needles that produce a controlled lesion of the skin without really damaging the epidermis. These micro lesions cause minimal superficial bleeding and create a wound healing cascade with the release of various growth factors such as platelet-derived growth factor (PGF), the transforming growth factor alpha and beta (TGF-α and TGF- β), connective tissue activating protein connective tissue growth factor and fibroblast growth factor (FGF) ”.
WHAT IS THE RESULT OF THE APPLICATION OF MICRO NEEDLES?
Neovascularization and neochogenesis are initiated by the migration and proliferation of fibroblasts and the fixation of the intercellular matrix. A fibronectin matrix is formed after 5 days of the injury that determines the deposition of collagen that results in a hardening of the skin that persists for 5-7 years in the form of collagen III. It has been found that the depth of neochogenesis is 5-600 μm with a 1.5 mm long needle. The histological examination of the skin treated with 4 sessions of microneedles with a month of difference shows a 400% increase in the deposition of collagen and elastin at 6 months postoperative, with a thickened stratum stratum and normal challenge ridges at 1 postoperative year.
DOES ETERNAL BEAUTY HAVE MICRO NEEDLE TREATMENT FOR SKIN REJUVENATION?
In Eternal Beauty Clinic we have incorporated this rejuvenating treatment with micro needles for its safety and results.
We have chosen the one that technically offers the best results and greater comfort for our patients, an automated system that precisely guarantees the length of the needles depending on the treatment chosen.
DERMAPEN is an automated microneedle device that looks like a pen . This ergonomic device uses needles and disposable guides to adjust the length of the needle for fractional mechanical rejuvenation. The tip has 9-12 needles arranged in rows. It makes use of a rechargeable battery to operate in two modes, namely the high speed mode (700 cycles / min) and the low speed mode (412 cycles / min) in the form of a vibratory seal.
