NEW WEAPON AGAINST AGING
Dimitry Rabkin, M.D., F.A.C.S.
Medical and Surgical Director
(Englewood, New Jersey) As we age, our skin becomes thinner, less elastic and sallow and develops wrinkles, spots and changes in texture. This occurs due to both intrinsic aging (genetic aging) and extrinsic aging (sun damage, pollution, stress, diet, smoking, etc). Decrease in collagen production, DNA damage by free radicals, slower renewal processes, and increase in enzymes that break down collagen and elastin (integral components that give our skin its youthful, supple appearance) and other mechanisms, produce negative effects on our skin. Eighty percent of these changes in the skin, especially of the
face, neck, décolleté, and hands, are due to extrinsic aging.
To improve the skin and restore its youthful appearance, texture and vibrancy, one must initiate a healing process. At Esthetica MD, we utilize a procedure known as micro-needling or percutaneous collagen induction therapy with use of an automated hand-held device – Dermapen®. This procedure kick-starts the healing and regenerative process by introducing appropriate products, such as peptides, antioxidants, growth factors, stem cells and others, into the skin to provide a truly beneficial and effective treatment.
In a fairly comfortable way, Dermapen® creates small (0.02 mm) penetrations in the skin, producing micro channels through which rejuvenating products can be delivered. The depth and speed of penetration can be adjusted for specific areas of the face, neck, hands or body. This process does not injure the surrounding skin, but instead stimulates the repair response and allows introduction of numerous beneficial products to the areas where they would be most effective; think of it as airing out your lawn and introducing nutrients and oxygen for a healthy, vibrant look. This procedure is safe for all skin types and is of great benefit as a preventive, anti-aging modality.
Studies have shown that Dermapen® leads to a 200% increase in collagen production in the skin without potential hazards or costs associated with lasers that are at times used in skin rejuvenation procedures. Dermapen® skin rejuvenation and conditioning protocols are relatively comfortable, take about 30 minutes to perform and have minimal or no downtime.
In summary, automated micro-needling (percuteneous collagen induction therapy) is a remarkably efficient, safe, flexible, and relatively painless procedure in the armamentarium of facial, neck (and other areas) rejuvenation. The hands of time can be turned back and the procedure, whether as a standalone or combined with other modalities, provides clearly measurable, beneficial changes for those interested in addressing wrinkles and looking younger, healthier and more vibrant. It is a reliable, 100% scientifically supported procedure with minimal downtime, and is affordable essentially on any budget.
