We started to work with medical Microneedling in 2012, using an electronic device form the beginning. The Dermapen ® is an FDA-approved electronic device that uses multiple sterile microfine disposable needles to vertically pierce the skin (fractional microneedling device) in order to induce cell activation and collagen-induction by piston driven oscillation. This causes collagen remodeling and enhances skin rejuvenation, especially if hyalurone or PRP-substances are administered under the treatment. Unlike needle rollers, Dermapen® uses a precisely-controlled stamping method to reach a preset depth between 0,5 and 2,5 mm in the skin while minimizing excess damage to the epidermis. Due to the strict vertical movement of the 11 surgical steel microneedles there is no horizontal tension on the "microwounds". We are proud to be one of the first practices in Germany to have started to offer this treatment.
Plasma needling is a term used for the combination of Microneedling and PRP (platelet rich plasma) in one treatment, adding the two cellstimulating effects to boost the outcome. It is also referred to as vampire lifting of plasma lifting, but in the latter two cases PRP also might just be injected by a syringe to certain areas os be brought into deeper skinlaysers by a mesogun (mesotherapy).
Dr. Huschek will inform you about precautions to take and possible side effects of medical microneedling.
