Fractional needling can be used for:
The microneedling pen is much safer and more effective in piercing the skin than traditional skin micro needling Rollers, because of its unique vertical micro needling technology. It has a superior effect on collagen and elastin rejuvenation. Active ingredients are directly supplied to the deeper layers of the skin.
Fractional needling pen ’s multi-speed and adjustable needle depths allows the needles to pierce the skin’s layers at 90 degrees and increases the effectiveness of treatments by increasing the absorption of products. On the other hand, it reduces pain and patient downtime.
Fractional needling can effectively treat hard-to-reach places (e.g. around the eyes, nose, and lips). Because of the vertical delivery, the needles can easily penetrate scar tissue.
Fractional needling promotes scar-less healing and natural collagen reproduction, similar to fractional laser treatments, IPL, laser resurfacing, and chemical peels, but without the side effects and downtime.
The mechanism of injury is a natural process, which makes the fractional needling pen a holistic approach to skin therapy. Four major phases of physiological wound response help in stimulating new healthy tissue growth. First, an inflammatory response (1-3 days), to the initial injury promotes the chemotaxis response and proliferation of fibroblasts. The body’s platelets also respond to initiate a wound matrix. This response is the early phase of cell migration to remove debris and bacteria and stimulate the next proliferative phase. During the second phase (3-5 days), the new fibroblasts, monocytes, keratinocytes of the first phase continue to proliferate and multiply. New collagen will be laid down and deposited with new tissue formation. Next a fibrotic response (5-20 days), of growth factors are released and fibroblasts release collagen. Finally, the maturation stage of new healthy skin takes place from day 28 to two years after treatment. Collagens mature and stiffen and the matrix of new tissue shows 80% to full tensile strength.
Acne Scar Treatment
Fractional needling can provide drastic results improving the appearances of the scars. The micro needles create new collagen and elastin to be generated and deposited called collagenesis, however the added benefit of new capillary growth is also a result which can improve blood supply to the area which helps create healthier existing skin as well as provide a healthy foundation for the new skin. The physical nature of “skin-needling” breaks up this fibrous and uneven scar tissue and stimulates the growth of new tissue. Currently there are ablative and non-ablative treatments offered which can damage the epidermis and evaporate the skin leading to thinner epidermis problems. Fractional needling pen keeps the epidermis integrity full intact while treating the area which quickens healing time and causes less pain. The typical treatment regimen will consist of 5-6 treatments.
A wrinkle is a fold, ridge or crease in the skin. Skin wrinkles typically appear as a result of the aging processes resulting in a thinning of the epidermal layers of the skin as they lose the ability to retain moisture. Wrinkling in the skin is caused by habitual facial expressions, aging, sun damage, smoking, poor hydration, and various other factors.
The Fractional needling pen promotes a process of new skin growth through the science of Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT).
Skin conditions are different as well as the age of each patient. 2-3 aggressive treatments will provide a noticeable difference, however 5-6 treatments will show the most dramatic results. Once the skin condition has the desired effects, it is important to maintain collagen stimulation by performing a new treatment every 12-24 weeks.
