What is the Hydra Pen?
You may have noticed we recently launched the Hydra Pro on our website and wonder what the difference between this device and our other dermapens might be!
The Hydra Pen is a new device for fractional mesotherapy treatment which rejuvenates your skin from the inside out! It also combines the functions of microdermabrasion and of course, microneedling.
How Does it Work?
The Hydra Pro is a microneedling device which also includes a capsule filled with serum which injects into your skin during the microneedling process. This needling action causes micro-damage, which stimulates the production of collagen and elastin and enhances cellular renewal. The needles form micro-channels in the skin, which helps the penetration of more than 80% of a serums ingredients into the skin - far more than if you were to apply a serum topically. The technique uses very fine needles to deliver a series of injections into the middle layer (mesoderm) of skin. The idea behind mesotherapy is that it corrects underlying issues like poor circulation and inflammation which cause skin damage, as well as to get the most out of your desired serum ingredients.
When the device is turned on, the needles in the cartridge begin the reciprocating motion with a frequency of 3000 micro-punctures/min to 5500 punctures/min which simultaneously distributes the serum deeply into these newly created microchannels.
What is Mesotherapy?
Mesotherapy is a technique which injects ingredients in the body to rejuvenate and tighten skin.
Mesotherapy is used to:
- Reduce cellulite
- Improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Tighten skin
- Improve the appearance of hyperpigmentation/melasma/sun damage
- Improve alopecia (hair loss)
- Enlarged pores
There isn’t a standard formula for the substances injected in mesotherapy. The type of serum you use will depend on the desired outcome you are hoping to achieve through using the Hydra Pen. For example, if you are needing hydration and improved skin barrier, you might opt for a product containing ceramides.
The Hydra Pro device is a really great way to get the most out of your products and target your skin concerns at the same time.
