The purpose behind the creation of the device
The device’s purpose is to deliver water-based supplements deep into the skin. Real delivery of solutions opens up opportunities to create completely new methods of anti-aging therapy.
How it works
The device uses liquid, fed in under pressure through ultra-thin openings in the single-use tip. Because the diameter of the stream (50 microns) is smaller than the inlet diameter of the pores, a sort of lock-in process happens during the alignment between the pores and the stream, and a portion of the liquid is transfused from the tip into the pore. Naturally, to overcome the resistance of the pore, the liquid must be fed under pressure. If we assume for a moment that the stream is larger in diameter than the pore, then it is easy to see that the parts of the stream that are beyond the size of the pore will create pressure on the skin around the pore, which will lead to its densification, closure, and the inability to successfully deliver the solution. For the time it takes to process the face, which has around 200,000.00 pores, in result of random alignments with pores over 20,000.00 fill-ups of pores occur, with a total amount of 2 cm3 of liquid.
Advantages and benefits
The inside surface of pores has skin similar in structure to that of external areas of the skin. Due to its orientation towards the inside of the skin, the pore can serve as a channel which leads to the depths of the dermis. This, in turn, means that this technology is absolutely safe and usable in all seasons of the year. The 2-10% water solutions of Glycolic Acid and Lactic Acid (AHA), used as the general solutions, will allow for the creation of storage for acid stimuli deep inside the skin. These will signal the existence of a *dangerous* foreign chemical body, which triggers an anti-inflammatory response. The response consists of an increase in the formation and the creation of new cells, the native collagen, and elastin. As a result, the fullness and turgor of skin increases, melanin regenerates, and the number of neuroproteins increases, which heightens the sensitivity and reactivity of the skin.
Delivery of amino acids inside the skin supply new material for skin rebuilding. Amino acids are organic compounds that combine to form proteins. Amino acids and proteins are the building blocks of life and skin. Being supply after irritating AHA, amino acids are involved into skin reconstruction and regeneration.
The microscopic size of the streams imposes additional requirements for the cleanliness of the water solutions used. The presence of any impurities can clog up the inlets. The machine requires a wash-up and maintenance in between procedures. In areas of facial skin, such as the nose, where the skin is less able to stretch, the fit and the effect of lock-in is weaker, which is why the technique of operating in such conditions is somewhat more complicated. The device collects the used material in a special container, without polluting the environment. The machine’s operation aims to improve the quality of the skin, not to remove visible shortcomings. That requires additional explanatory work with patients, who expect the immediate disappearance of irritating defects. The results come after 3-4 weekly treatments. Then after regular sessions once or twice a month, the result will be retained indefinitely. The principle here is that younger skin, which is more dense and flexible, will handle age defects on its own.
The device allows for the performance of deep 3D chemical peeling, situating relatively weak acids from the AHA group in the depths of skin, starting from the surface of the dermis and deeper. It is possible to regulate the amount of material and the depth of delivery by changing the working parameters of the device, depending on the indications and the zone of treatment. Working inside the skin, these acids do not affect the surface-level, which are the more persistent areas of the skin, and do not destroy them. This allows for the procedure to be performed in any season of the year without worrying about the appearance of pigmentation or other side effects.
Delivery of the supplements
The delivery mechanism is original, logical, and physically available and realized in the form of a unique plastic tip for the procedure, which in and of itself constitutes a breakthrough in plastic micro-molding technology. The action mechanism is simple and clear to medical specialists and accessible to their patients. The newest method of delivery offers practically unlimited possibilities to specialists. By using different liquid solutions, it is possible to achieve the wanted results without damaging and traumatizing the skin, and while retaining its integrity and health.
Retention of the result
The results appear only several days after the first procedure is complete, when the solutions from the formed vessels inside begin to diffuse throughout the thickness of skin. Because the effect is three-dimensional, the changes to the quality of the skin apply throughout its thickness, responsible for the aesthetic result. Any aging skin will inevitably become younger for a very long time!!!
Opportunities for the treatment of the body’s skin
The device provides a unique opportunity for treating areas of the neck and décolleté. All other areas of the skin, which have pores, can also be treated using AFFINITÉ. In our work with the device, we cannot and do not want to offer specialists hard rules on how to perform this or that procedure. We trust your enthusiasm and professionalism to be the first in developing new methods with the help of our device, to finally offer a technology with actual results that grants beauty to your patients.
