The next generation Skin Needling
Skin needling is a popular method for wrinkle reduction, treating acne scarring and rejuvenating the complexion. The MDerma uses sterile, sealed individual and disposable needle cartridges to create small micro channels in the skin and deliver topical ingredients.
The benefts of skin needling are double-fold. Firstly, the columns of micro-injuries stimulate the skin’s wound healing response, which triggers the natural production of collagen in the dermis. This process is called Percutaneous Therapy induction of collagen. It is a physiological process that improves the thickness, colour, texture and consistency of the complexion.
The second benefit is the delivery of active ingredients to the skin via the micro needling columns. MDerma creates channels that carry up to 80 percent more topical ingredients, compared to if they were applied without the needling device.
Skin needling with MDerma increases the absorption of active ingredients into the skin, stimulates skin repair at a cellular level and accelerates the regeneration of skin’s epidermal cells. The depth of MDerma micro-needles can be adjusted, which allows treatment to be adapted to each patient’s individual needs. This customisation means MDerma can be used in sensitive areas such as the upper and lower eyelids, lips and nose – areas that are usually untreatable with other modalities.
Treatment at the shallower depths involves minimal discomfort, and don’t usually require any form of anaesthetic. For depths greater than 0.5mm, it is necessary to apply topical anaesthetic between 15 and 40 minutes before the procedure.
There is minimal downtime involved after the procedure. Skin flushing often occurs, but resolves in 12 to 48 hours following treatment in typical cases.
Often a series of treatments is recommended to achieve the best results. Skin rejuvenation often calls for four to six treatments, acne scarring is usually a minimum of six treatments and stretch marks can require anywhere between four and six treatments. Results are visible after just one treatment, however the skin will continue to improve in the months following the procedure as the new collagen continues to develop.
