Dermatude VS Other Methods
In the last decades research and development in skin rejuvenation have led to completely new insights in the field of anti-ageing. Treatment methods can be divided into 3 different kinds of techniques:
- Invasive treatments: the skin is intensively treated using techniques that penetrate into the deeper skin layers, such as Dermatude’s Meta Therapy, needle rollers, meso therapy or micro needling.
- Medical treatments:the skin receives radical treatment by medical specialists with, for example, Botulin Toxin (Botox) injections, fillers, laser, and eye lift or facelift.
Dermatude Meta Therapy is categorized as an Invasive Treatment. In beauty, there are 3 other variations of invasive treatments:
√ Micro Needling.
√ Meso Therapy.
√ Roller system.
A needle roller is a cylinder with needles that is rolled over the skin. The face is not a flat plane, but contains areas that are rounded and curved. Therefore, not all needles of the roller penetrate the skin to the same depth. Another factor to take into account is how hard the roller is pressed. When too much pressure is applied, the needles penetrate too deeply, which may result in scar tissue and skin rigidity. But if not enough pressure is applied, the injections are too shallow to work properly. A needle roller also makes significantly fewer micro-perforations due to the limited number of needles. In addition, it is not possible to use it for the targeted treatment of specific wrinkles.
The advantage of Meta Therapy compared to the needle roller is that it not only activates cell regeneration, it also introduces the active ingredients into the skin during the treatment before the skin closes. What’s more, the treatment is considerably more accurate and detailed. The microperforations allow for precise control in terms of depth and distance, and have a much greater density. Per second, no less than 1,800 micro-perforations are made into the skin in a painless way. The active ingredients are introduced during the treatment. Meta Therapy also includes special modules for the treatment of specific wrinkles.
Deep treatments have a more intensive effect and produce better results than surface treatments. Meso Therapy is a procedure that requires only one needle. The injections with the active ingredients are administered in specific areas, but the distance and depth of the injections cannot be controlled. Because of the larger distance and limited number of injections, Meso Therapy does not activate the natural cell regeneration of the skin. Neither does it activate the production of collagen and elastin.
Meta Therapy belongs to the category of deep treatments (invasive treatments) and combines all the advantages of the different treatments in one technique. The added bonus of Meta Therapy is that the application of active ingredients is combined with the natural cell regeneration of the skin. The complete skin is painlessly treated with 18 micro needles which are inserted into the skin at high speed, making on average 1800 perforations per second. This means no part of the skin is left untouched. Thanks to the ultra-precise depth adjustment, Meta Therapy always reaches the right cell layers in the skin.
The pen of fractional needling has an analogue drive. It is not possible to correct the needle frequency caused by the resistance of the skin, which results in irregular perforations in different skin zones. Beside that, most micro-needling techniques for anti-ageing facial treatments use needles that are too long to perforate the deeper layer of the dermis. You will face a risk of irreparable subcutaneous damage, similar to scar formation with 2nd degree skin burns. The skin then becomes stiff and hardens by loss of elasticity.
The right needle length is very important for the optimal effect. Meta Therapy perforates the basal cell layer, which when activated, enhances the production of collagen and elastin without risk on the development of subcutaneous scar tissue. Therefore Meta Therapy is much more effective, safer and there are no unwanted effects with repeated applications on short or long term.
