Micro-needling, also popularly known as Collagen Induction Therapy
(CIT), is a proven skin rejuvenation and correction treatment that
can achieve results with skin rejuvenation and/or correction (eg.
pigmentation) and comparable to more invasive procedures.
Dermatude Meta Therapy uses the Dermatude Meta Jet device with
ultra- thin needles to make painless micro-perforations in the skin
to stimulate collagen and elastin production.
Active subjectables are applied during treatment, targeted to
suit the skin type and concern, offering a dual effect in the battle
against skin ageing.
Dermatude opens the skin barrier painlessly with tiny
needles to stimulate collagen production and allow penetration
of active ingredients.
It is a breakthrough in anti-ageing, skin rejuvenation, skin
hydration and restoration. It’s also so easy to use and the short
treatment time means low costs, high profits.
Fusion Meso offers a synergy between Fractional and No-Needle
Meso. Fractional Meso uses the Meso Pen: a fast, effective and
hygienic device to make micro punctures to stimulate collagenesis
and increase transdermal delivery of high-tech ingredients. No-
Needle Meso is a painless, advanced approach to mesotherapy
based on a combination of electroporation (electromagnetic
pulses) and photo bio - stimulation. This opens the pores and
creates micro -channels that carry the active ingredients into the
deeper layers of the skin while at the same time emitting an LED
light to activate certain biological functions of cells. The cartridges
– in adaptable needle lengths - benefit from anti-back-flow
technology, to prevent product or bodily fluids entering the device
and eliminating the chance of cross-contamination. Fusion Meso
also offers Smart Mix, a technology allowing practitioners to create
bespoke treatment solutions and homecare creams for patients.
Infini delivers enhanced wrinkle reduction and skin tightening
through RF energy deliver y via insulated gold-coated micro needles
to volumise tissue.
This creates precise and controllable fractionated
coagulation zones within a specific layer of dermis.
Adjustable depth control allows for treatments of delicate
areas. Infini effectively lowers the risk of post-inf lammatory
hyperpigmentation in dark skin types and can be safely used
on patients with melasma and other types of pigmented lesions.
Lutronic’s patented ComfortFlow technology maximises comfort
and patient satisfaction.
MDerma uses sterile, sealed individual and disposable needle
cartridges for optimal patient safety. Every cartridge has multiple
needles, with proprietary technology, penetrating vertically
generating micro skin channels, while stimulating the natural
production of collagen. These channels carry up to 80 percent
more topical nutrients – such as Factor 4’s enhanced platelet
rich plasma (PRP) technology - allowing penetration deep to the
skin fibroblasts, feeding the cells found in the dermis and the
basal layer. This increases the absorption of active ingredients,
stimulating the repair at a cellular level and accelerating the
regeneration of the skin’s epidermal cells. The adjustable needle
depth allows treatments to be adapted to individual needs.
MDerma can be used in sensitive and prev iously inaccessible
areas such as the upper and lower eyes, lips and nose.
THE POINTY END OF PURGING PIGMENTATION
MAINTAIN AND ENHANCE RESULTS
WITH HOME CARE
Use of skin-brightening home care products combined
with regular, non-aggressive exfoliation (to facilitate better
penetration of active ingredients) will accelerate and enhance
the results of a patient’s clinical pigmentation treatments.
While hydroquinone is still widely prescribed, a new
generation of lightening formulations have entered the
market over the past decade - melanin-blocking, anti-
inflammatory and antioxidant serums, creams and lotions,
featuring such ingredients as vitamin C, niacinamide,
bearberry or licorice extracts, and azelaic acid, that also offer
superior anti-ageing benefits.
In turn, this also offers your practice an excellent retail
opportunity to generate extra revenue.
“Melanin inhibitors target the pigment production phase,”
says associate professor Goodman. They work by blocking
tyrosinase, the enzyme that tells cells to produce pigment.
It should be stressed to a patient that if they can’t or won’t
commit to scrupulous sun-safe policies, they will be frustrated
when pigmentation recurs.
Even 20 minutes’ unprotected exposure to UV rays can take
their skin back to Ground Zero, or even make the condition
worse than before, as laser and light-based treatments make the
skin more sun-sensitive, at least in the immediate aftermath.
