Fractional Needling from € 75,-
Sagging cheeks, fine lines on the face and cleavage, hard and tough scars, acne pits, enlarged pores and stretch marks – minimize them quickly and easily with the Ecuri Fractional Needle. The method takes seconds to make hundreds of tiny puncture wounds in the skin. Bio-active hyaluronic acid or another active agent is then injected through these punctures. Unsightly areas on the face, neck and cleavage are quickly and easily reduced or even completely eliminated. A Fractional Needle treatment takes around 30 minutes, is virtually painless and provides immediate results.
- Sagging cheeks
- Fine lines on the face and cleavage
- Hard and tough scars
- Acne pits
- Enlarged pores
- Stretch marks
The treatment is carried out using the special Ecuri Fractional Needle cartridge, which can be easily mounted onto the pen of your Micropigmentation unit. The cartridge has a 7-point circular needle with individual needles spaced 1.5 mm apart, allowing for fast treatment of larger surface areas. The cartridge also includes the active pressure system that injects the agent into the skin.
Although the Fractional Needle is also effective in treating fine lines, it is important to draw the distinction between the treatment of wrinkles caused by repetitive facial expressions and those caused by loss of elasticity in the skin.
The Fractional Needle technique is especially effective when treating fine lines caused by slackening of the skin. Because the lines caused by facial expressions result from muscle contraction, these types of lines respond less effectively to treatment.
The Fractional Needle is most effective in treating
Fine lines around the mouth, cheeks, neck and cleavage area
Specific types of striae
Effects on scars
The technique is derived from fractional laser technology. It is based on the idea of stimulating the skin’s own regenerative properties while using a fractional cartridge to actively inject hyaluronic acid into the skin. Scar tissue is characterised by poor circulation, loss of pigmentation and hardening of tissue.
Typically, scar tissue is recognisable as a lighter, shiny patch on the skin. In many cases, not only have capillaries been damaged, but pores have also been reduced. The fractional technique is most effective in treating poor circulation tissue structure.
The tiny fractional needles powerfully stimulate the circulation, often causing the minute puncture wounds they create to immediately fill up with blood. The introduction of blood back into the tissue ensures the formation of essential skin structures during the healing process, such as capillaries and pores. As a consequence, the epidermis returns to proper functioning, with colour returning as a result of renewed pigment production.
Effective treatment of striae
When it comes to treating stretch marks, it is important to distinguish between hard and soft striae. Hard striae are characterised by thick tissue that often forms an interwoven pattern. Soft striae often appear as a dimple covered by a thin wrinkled skin. It looks as if the dermis has been torn and a small dimple has formed under the skin.Hard striae often occur on the hips, belly and lower legs.
Soft striae appear on the breasts or on the sides of the body. The hard form of striae can be considered a type of hard scar tissue and they respond well to treatment as a result.
In the case of the soft form, the dermis has been essentially torn and there is an empty space under the epidermis, making this form of striae difficult to treat.
