What is microneedling mesotherapy?

Microneedling is a point (fractional) effect on the skin of microscopic needles with laser sharpening. Therefore, it has several names, one of which is fractional mesotherapy. It is conventionally divided into two broad categories:

1 – Dermapen mechanical microneedling

2 – Radio wave microneedle RF-lifting

Dermapen mechanical microneedling

Mechanical microneedling is performed on a compact pen-like apparatus called Dermapen®. It is a proven and reliable method for improving the appearance of the skin without the need for invasive surgery. Dermapen helps to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin by activating the action of fibroblasts.

With the help of the procedure, you can achieve the effect of rejuvenating the skin of the face and body, effectively treat and significantly reduce such cosmetic imperfections as scars, remove stretch marks, reduce enlarged pores, get rid of areas of pigmentation, remove flabbiness, even out color. After the course of procedures, the skin looks rejuvenated, refreshed, rested and visibly taut. Recommended to be combined with other treatments such as CO2 laser resurfacing, photorejuvenation or thermomagnetic RF lifting.

How it works?

Microneedling involves the use of a mechanical device called a Dermapen to deliver thousands of tiny injections into the upper layers of the skin. By precisely adjusting the depth, distance, frequency and nature of these acupunctures. Dermapen stimulates the production of more collagen and elastin in the areas where it is needed the most. Microneedling has been scientifically proven to treat wrinkles, freckles and age spots, scars, burns.

Can microneedling be combined with other treatments?

Microneedling can be combined with a liquid surface treatment:

The so-called “Vampire Face” procedure involves covering the face with the patient’s own blood with pre-enriched platelets with further processing of the face with the Dermapen apparatus as shown in Bar Rafaeli and Kim Kardashian, below.

This procedure is more gentle than traditional plasmolifting and PRP, and this is probably why it is very popular among TV stars and celebrities who do not have time for the rehabilitation period.

The microchannels make it possible to deliver the necessary medications to the skin without injections, for example cocktails with hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, or platelet-rich plasma Plasmolifting (PRP) – to further improve the quality of the skin, give it uniformity and improve texture.

The Dermapen Microneedling procedure is very effective, since the skin absorbs the injected preparations with a larger area than with the injection method. Sometimes medications or hyaluronic acid are replaced with the patient’s own blood, processed in the same way as for PRP plasma lifting.

What is the difference between microneedling dermapen and mesoscooter?

Mesoscooter is less effective.

Whether in the spa or at home, the MESOROLLER (MESOSCOOTER) has needles that are much thicker and duller than those used in DERMAPEN. In addition, the Dermapen Microneedling medical procedure is performed by a qualified physician and uses long, thin needles with a depth of 0.2 to 7 mm, depending on your desire (in other words, 10 to 35 times deeper than mesoscooter models).

Dermaroller and home needles, if used ineptly, can damage the skin and lead to scarring.

The Dermapen Microneedling procedure treats the surface of your skin at a 90 degree (perpendicular) angle to minimize scraping, scratching, or other trauma that can lead to scarring.

How does the use of non-professional microneedles affect the result of the procedure?

Inexpensive spa devices often have poor quality needles that are slightly bent at an angle and thus can damage the skin. In the same way, ring-shaped devices do not penetrate the skin with skin rollers at right angles of 90 degrees and for this reason can be harmful and dangerous.
