Medical skin-needling is an established clinical procedure with clinical results and skin improvements that are well known and undisputed. Peer review studies and clinical reviews have established this as an effective treatment with an excellent safety profile. Its suitability for all skin types has made it a key treatment for acne scarring, sun damaged and ageing skin, fine lines and wrinkles, and stretch marks.
2013 marked a new beginning in medical skin-needling with the introduction of eDS™ Skin Rejuvenation. Using the eDermastamp®, the latest evolution in electronic automation, is again leading the way in quality, efficacy and safety assurance.
eDS™ Skin Rejuvenation is only available from medical practitioners and authorised clinics using the eDermastamp™ CE marked medical device. eDS™ Skin Rejuvenation provides advanced, electronic medical aesthetic skin-needling, a procedure that stimulates the skin to regenerate and repair itself naturally and safely, creating smoother, brighter, younger, healthier looking skin. Applicable to treat most areas of the face and specific areas of the body, it is most advantageous for the following:
- Isolated scars and smaller scar formations.
- Distinct deeper mimic wrinkles.
- Isolated pigment conglomeration.
- Transdermal delivery of hydrophilic and lipophilic formulations.
Only the technology in the eDermastamp™ skin-needle medical device combines the most advanced German, medically-engineered, electrical mechanism with the most advanced Medizinisch-Nadel-Technik™ German medical skin-needle technology providing an even more intensive, even more controllable and even more comfortable medical skin-needling procedure!
The eDS™ Skin Rejuvenation treatment has an excellent comfort level and this will normally be made more so by the application of a topical anaesthetic prior to treatment. Alongside this and to further enhance the efficacy and comfort of the treatment, the practitioner will incorporate a medi-grade, skin hydrating and enhancing solution to the treatment area providing an advanced mesotherapy procedure.
Q: What benefits will I see in my skin, and when?
A: EDS is used to improve skin texture and tone, can reduce pore size and tighten the skin, and is one of our most effective treatments for blending surgical scarring and acne scars. Results can sometimes be seen as early as one week after treatment, and are visible at six weeks and often continues to improve for up to 6 months.
Q: How often should I have treatments?
A: While many people see results with just one treatment, we recommend 3-4 treatments, each about 6-8 weeks apart. After your initial course of treatments, you may choose to have a ‘refresh’ treatment once per year.
Q: What will I look like after?
A: Immediately after the treatment your skin will feel warm, like a sunburn. This settles quickly, usually within 24-48 hours.
Q: How can I best prepare my skin for EDS?
A: You will get the best results if you have great skin nutrition. We recommend using medical grade topical creams containing hyaluronic acid to keep the moisture in the skin. Use of Vitamins A and C are beneficial, although necessary to stop a few days before and after the treatment.
At Toronto Dermatology Centre, I tend to treat isolated lesions such as scars or large pores most commonly. However it is possible to treat an entire face with the EDS. With the ability to change the depth that the needles penetrate with just a twist of the wand, customizing any area is simple and quick. Patients also find the treatment to be almost painless too!
If you feel you may be a good candidate for the eDermastamp, come in for a complimentary consultation. Our results speak for themselves.
