Table of contents
Treatment with Dermapen 4 utilizes the "natural healing power" that is inherent in the human body to heal wounds and injuries by itself.
By making a fine needle hole on the skin surface with a needle as fine as a hair, the natural healing power that tries to repair the needle hole works, and a growth factor that activates cell activity is secreted.
Growth factor is a general term for proteins that promote the proliferation and differentiation of specific cells in the human body (each cell acquires a function that matches its role), and helps the regeneration of damaged cells. It has the function of regenerating the skin.
The main types of growth factors are epidermal cell growth factors that promote skin renewal (turnover), collagen, elastin, hyaluronic acid, and SOD (antioxidants) that are necessary to maintain skin elasticity. There are fibroblast growth factors that can be transformed.
The natural healing power secretes growth factors, which activates the turnover cycle, which is the metabolism of the skin, so that the texture of the skin is smoothed, and it can be expected to improve the opening of pores and the roughness of the skin .
In addition, it activates the function of fibroblasts that produce collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, which are involved in skin firmness, elasticity, and moisturization , leading to firmness and elasticity of the skin, as well as improving wrinkles and sagging. It has been with.
Human skin has a three-layer structure from the outside, the epidermis layer, the dermis layer, and the subcutaneous tissue (mainly the fat layer), but the depth of the Dermapen 4 needle is adjusted according to the purpose of treatment .
If you want to adjust the turnover cycle, which is the metabolism of the skin, to improve pore opening, age spots, dullness, and acne, you should approach the epidermis layer where turnover occurs, so stick the needle shallowly .
To increase elasticity and elasticity, and to improve uneven crater skin, deeply pierce the dermis layer where fibroblasts that produce collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid are located .
Collagen, which is a strong fibrous protein, occupies about 70% of the dermis layer, and elastin, which is an elastic fibrous protein, bundles collagens in a network and has a spring-like structure. Gives skin firmness and elasticity. Hyaluronic acid, a jelly-like substance, fills the space between collagen and elastin while holding water.
Collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid decrease with age, ultraviolet rays, and stress, so it is said that the skin loses its elasticity and elasticity, causing wrinkles and sagging.
In human skin, the barrier function of the epidermis layer works to prevent the invasion of bacteria from outside the body, so while the barrier function blocks the invasion of foreign substances, the lotion and beauty essence usually applied to the skin Active ingredients such as essence stay on the surface of the epidermis layer and cannot penetrate deep into the skin.
However, by making a high-density needle hole in the skin with Dermapen 4, the active ingredient of the drug that originally stays on the surface of the epidermis layer penetrates firmly and evenly from the back of the epidermis layer to the dermis layer. You can expect a higher effect than applying as it is.
This action is called "drug delivery", and by combining various drugs with Dermapen 4, the effect of each drug can be further enhanced .
Uber Peel is a peeling agent (Uber Pro Peel) exclusively for Dermapen developed by Dermapen World of Australia, the developer of Dermapen 4.
Peeling removes dead skin cells on the surface of the skin and activates the skin's metabolism, turnover. What is turnover? In the epidermis layer of the skin, old skin cells are pushed by new skin cells born in the lower layer and rise to the surface of the skin, eventually becoming keratin and naturally peeling off, and the skin becomes new. It is a cycle of being reborn.
Originally, healthy skin repeats turnover in which the skin is reborn at regular intervals, but if the turnover cycle is disturbed due to aging, fatigue, stress, disordered eating habits, constipation, etc., old keratin on the skin surface Accumulates and causes the texture of the skin to become rough and rough, and causes pores to open and darkening.
In addition, if the turnover cycle is disturbed, the melanin pigment generated after exposure to ultraviolet rays cannot be discharged, causing spots and dullness, and the barrier function that protects the skin deteriorates, resulting in rough skin and acne. It may cause skin troubles such as pimples.
Uber Peel has a peeling effect that restores the disorder of skin turnover to normal, and is said to lead to improvement of rough skin such as clogged pores, open pores, darkening, dark spots and dullness of the skin, and acne .
Uber Peel contains not only a peeling effect, but also a whitening ingredient that is said to be effective for acne scars (pigmentation) after inflammation, and an ingredient that supports the regeneration of skin cells .
|Ingredients||Ingredients with whitening effect||Ingredients that act on acne and troubled skin||Ingredients that act on the repair of skin cells|
|Retinal (Vitamin A)||○|
|Niacinamide (vitamin B3)||○|
Uber peel mainly approaches the epidermis layer to activate the disordered turnover cycle, so the depth of the needle pierced with Dermapen 4 is 0.2 mm to 0.5 mm, and treatment is performed for the shallow layer (epidermis layer). do.
By applying Uber Peel after making a fine needle hole in the skin with Dermapen 4, the active ingredient of Uber Peel, which originally stays on the surface of the epidermis layer, penetrates firmly and evenly into the depth of the epidermis layer. Therefore, it is said to be more effective than applying the drug as it is.
By combining Dermapen 4, which regenerates the skin with the natural healing power to repair the needle holes, and Uber Peel, which normalizes skin turnover and contains whitening ingredients and antioxidant ingredients, it is possible to remove acne skin. It can be expected to have a synergistic effect on improving skin quality such as improvement, spots, and dullness .
In addition, the hypoallergenic Uber peel that approaches the epidermis layer, which is the shallow layer of the skin, has less bleeding and pain than the velvet skin and vampire facial that are treated by deeply piercing the dermis layer, and redness and down immediately after treatment. It is said that the time is short .
Dermapen 4 and Uber Peel treatments may be effective even once, but repeated treatments are said to be more effective.
It is recommended to take 3 to 5 times every 3 to 4 weeks .
Dermapen 4 is used after applying an anesthetic cream to reduce the pain of the procedure. Furthermore, when combined with Uber peel, the needle of Dermapen pierces the shallow part of the skin (epidermis layer), so it is said that there is almost no pain .
Since Uber peel is hypoallergenic, it is said that it is less likely to feel a burning sensation or tingling sensation than collagen peel (massage peel), but there are individual differences in how pain is felt.
Redness may occur after the treatment of Dermapen 4 and Uber Peel, but it is said that it can be hidden with make-up and will subside in about 1 to 3 days .
In addition, peeling and dryness may occur, but it is said that it will subside in about a week.
Since the Uber peel treatment involves inserting the Dermapen 4 needle into the shallow epidermis layer of the skin, it is said that internal bleeding is unlikely to occur due to the needle, but it is said that even if internal bleeding occurs, it will settle in about a week. I have.

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is made by collecting your own blood and using a medical device to extract only the plasma containing a large amount of platelets from the blood.
By applying PRP while making fine needle holes in the skin with Dermapen 4, abundant growth factors contained in platelets permeate and activate fibroblasts that produce collagen and elastin that bring elasticity and elasticity to the skin. Let me do it.
It regenerates the skin cells themselves and promotes improvement of skin quality from the inside to firm and glossy skin, so it is useful for improving fine wrinkles, sagging pores, roughness and acne scars, uneven crater skin, stretch marks, flesh cracks, etc. You can expect the effect .
Velvet skin is a treatment menu that combines Dermapen 4 and collagen peel (massage peel), and was named because it leads to smooth and firm skin like velvet, which is a high-class woven fabric.
Collagen peel promotes collagen growth by applying a drug called "PRX-T33" that contains three components: high-concentration trichloroacetic acid, low-concentration hydrogen peroxide, and kojic acid, and makes the skin firm and glossy. It is a treatment that brings a feeling .
Since kojic acid has the effect of suppressing the action of the enzyme that makes melanin, which is the cause of age spots, it can also be expected to have a whitening effect that leads to improvement of age spots and dullness .
The polynucleotide, which is the active ingredient of rejuran, is a molecule extracted from salmon DNA. It is not approved in Japan, but it has been approved by KFDA in South Korea, which is the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare of Japan, and its safety has been proven.
Rejuran stimulates fibroblasts in the dermis layer and promotes the production of collagen and elastin, which helps restore elasticity, elasticity, and flexibility, so it can improve wrinkles, sagging, and open pores .
Since rejuran has the function of regenerating skin cells, it creates the thickness of the epidermis layer as well as the dermis layer. When the epidermis layer regains its normal thickness, the barrier function of the skin is strengthened and the moisturizing power is improved.
In addition, because Rejuran has an anti-inflammatory effect, it is said to be effective against inflammatory red face and acne .
Placenta means "placenta", and there are types such as horse-derived and pig-derived, but as the name suggests, human placenta used in cosmetology is a placenta extracted from human placenta.
Placenta contains abundant active ingredients such as vitamin C, which suppresses the production of melanin pigments, ages cells and removes active oxygen that causes spots and wrinkles, and amino acids that keep the skin moisturized. You can expect skin-beautifying effects such as whitening and moisturizing .
Placenta also contains many growth factors that activate skin cell division. In the dermis layer, fibroblasts that produce collagen and elastin are activated , leading to firm and elastic skin .
In the epidermal layer, the activation of epidermal cell division normalizes the turnover cycle in which old cells are reborn into new cells, which is said to improve open pores and improve texture .
Human adipose stem cell-derived exosome preparation ASCE Plus contains various growth factors and peptides, coenzymes, amino acids, minerals, vitamins, and hyaluronic acid, as well as exosomes that play a role in signal transmission between cells. ..
The exosome is a component of a drug that moves between cells such as epidermal cells involved in skin metabolism turnover and fibroblasts that produce collagen and elastin, and is involved in skin cell regeneration and anti-inflammatory. It has the effect of helping to reach the cells.
The exosome preparation ASCE Plus has anti-inflammatory effects such as redness, rough skin, acne and insect bites, and spots, dullness, and uneven color caused by inflammatory pigmentation that remain after strong rubbing or squeezing. Leads to improvement .
