How Dermatude Works
Dermatude Meta Therapy combines digitally controlled micro-needling with active subjectables. This dual action treatment is delivered using either the FX50 device or the FX100 device and hand piece.
How Does It Work?
Dermatude involves making microperforations in the skin while using the FX50 or FX100 device and due to the practically invisible microperforations the natural repair mechanism of the skin begins. At the same time, it will stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. As a result, the skin is restored from the inside out through regeneration of the skin tissue.
The treatment also involves placing active ingredients into the skin in the form of subjectables, which enables you to carry out very specific and targeted treatments that suit type and issue of the individual client.

The Right Depth
Working on the right depth is very important to obtain skin rejuvenation or skin improvement. Dermatude features a curved stamp with flex head technology that automatically corrects the frequency, making irregular perforations in different skin zones impossible.
Dermatude modules create painless, invisible, microperforations. The 18 or 38 point needle modules, with a speed of 100 up to 150 movements per second, makes thousands of microperforations. The Dermatude hand piece perforates the Stratum Basal layer, which when activated, enhances the production of collagen and elastin without risk on the development of subcutaneous scar tissue. Dermatude is effective and safe with no short or long term unwanted effects with repeated application.
WHY THE STRATUM BASALE LAYER
The Stratum Basale is the deepest of the five layers of the epidermis, which is the outer, protective covering of the skin. The epidermis is continuously renewing cells from the Stratum Basale to replenish the epidermal layers. The Stratum Basale is also the layer that picks up the most nutrients from the underlying dermal blood vessels.
The Stratum Basale is primarily made up of basal keratinocyte cells, which can be considered the stem cells of the epidermis. They divide to form the keratinocytes, which migrate upwards where they die and form the skin’s surface – the Stratum Corneum.
How Channels Help Make the Subjectables More Effective
Controlled microperforations activate the natural regeneration of the skin and apply the exact amount of active ingredients in the layer of the skin where they can be most active.
The epidermis, the uppermost layer of the skin (0.05 – 0.1mm) protects the body from environmental elements. It also naturally blocks the entry of substances into the body.
The top layer of the skin is made up of dead corneocytes which are tightly connected by a lipid bilayer. These are non-hydrophilic, stopping water soluble elements from passing through.
The Dermatude micro-needles are designed to channel the subjectables during the treatment directly through the outermost protective layers of the epidermis, and into the Basale cell layer, where they are most effective.
How the Body Heals Itself
When Dermatude penetrates the skin, the microneedles create controlled damage, so that just the epidermis is affected. This creates an inflammation reaction which initiates the release of interleukins and growth factors that vastly improves the condition of the skin. Skin is firmer, fine lines and wrinkles are visibly improved, pores become refined and circulation is stimulated.
As the needle depth is at a maximum of 0.5mm no anaesthetic is needed and bleeding is unlikely as there is no blood supply in the epidermis.
