HOW DERMATUDE WORKS
Dermatude Meta Therapy combines digitally controlled micro needling with active subjectables. This dual action treatment is delivered using the easy-to-use META-Ject 50 device and hand piece.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Dermatude’s micro needle modules penetrate the epidermis creating thousands of micro-perforations per second. The creation of these perforations, enables the delivery of subjectables (serums) direct into the stratum basale layer where they are most effective. This also triggers the body’s natural healing response.
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
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 stratum basale, where they are most effective.
HOW THE BODY HEALS ITSELF
When Dermatude penetrates the skin, the micro-needles 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 (there is no blood supply in the epidermis).
