WHAT IS “Micro-needle pen?”
Micro-needle pen is an equipment consisting of a small needles, embedded by 36-42 tiny needles, whose purpose is to cause micro-lesions on the skin through “holes”, leaving areas around them intact, almost microscopic, to serve as input regeneration of the lesion provoked. The needles (pen) may have 36 to 42 micro-needles. These needles may be from 0.5mm to 2.5mm in length. Needles of 3.0mm or more may only be used by physicians.
HOW DOES THE Micro-needle pen WORK?
By grinding the “Micro-needle pen” on the skin, thousands of micro-holes are made, thus causing an intentional injury to the skin. As there is intact skin around the furrow, it reacts to heal the battered skin. By doing this, large amount of collagen is formed throughout the area. The regenerated skin is now firmer and evenly regenerated. This is the same principle as the “Fractional CO2 Laser”, which is an excellent, yet costly,treatment.
The term “fractionated” explicitly means that around minimal lesions are intact areas of skin, which is determinant for a rapid recovery of the patient undergoing this type of treatment.
