Hydra Needle Micro Needle Device – All in One Micro-needling Skin Care Therapy with 20 Pins Golden Titanium Needles
Hydra needle is a painless treatment using a micro needle device that is tapped gently on the surface of the skin to deliver cosmetic and hair growth serum solutions into the dermis.
AN INTRODUCTION TO MICRONEEDLING
Getting active ingredients deep into your skin immediately and safely, where they can be effective is the key to tackling any skin concern including wrinkles, scars and discolouration. Yet research shows that only 4-8% of that serum you’re using actually penetrates when you apply it with your hands.
This is because our skin has a thick outer layer called the strateum corneum that has an important job – to keep things out of our body like dirt and bacteria. It does this so well that the effect of all our creams and serums is limited – even the £200 ones. This vital outer layer serves as a barrier for the liquid and thus only a few of their molecules are able to reach where they’re needed to be effective. Think about the serums and creams you’ve wasted money on, and the months you spent waiting to see results all because only 4% was getting through.
The Hydra Needle is the home microneedling device that completely solves this problem. The high-quality bottle dispenses your serums, while teeny 24 karat gold-plated microneedles create channels in your skin that get ingredients where they’re needed. Doing this even tricks your body into starting its healing process to create new glowing skin.
In the next few minutes, we’ll explain how it works, show you exactly how to use it, and answer all the questions you may have about the treatment.
HOW IT ALL WORKS
The device has 20 small micro-needles on its surface that only go up to 0.6mm and are thinner than a human hair. When dotted on the skin they create pathways that lead your products past your outer skin layer.
The needles 0.5mm and above can delve into the second layer of skin, triggering your body’s wound healing response, at which point the following occurs: (1) The skin releases substances that stimulate growth, leading to new healthy skin being created, (2) the skin starts to produce more collagen leading to fewer wrinkles and much firmer skin.
WHAT SKIN CONDITIONS CAN I TREAT WITH MICRONEEDLING?
Microneedling is one of the few treatments that can help with a large array of skin-related problems, including:
Skin pigmentation issues
WHAT IS HYDRANEEDLE USED FOR?
The microneedling device is most commonly used to deliver cosmetic rejuvenation serums into the skin. These micro-infusion treatments improve skin texture, hydration, and elasticity. It not only improves fine lines and wrinkles, but can also improve acne scars, stretch marks, pore size, redness, and overall skin quality.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS?
Many patients notice a skin plumping and brightening effect immediately after procedure, but results are usually seen 3-7 days after treatment and typically last approximately 3-4 months (depending on the condition being treated, your lifestyle, and overall skin quality.
HOW OFTEN CAN I GET IT DONE?
This procedure can be done as often as every 1-3 months, as doing several treatments throughout the year will continue to improve long term skin quality. We find that Hydra needle treatments work best in a series of 3 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart, with best results seen from 6 treatments over 3 month period.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
The cost of the treatment is determined by the cocktail, which may include ingredients like: hyaluronic acid, your own PRP (platelet rich plasma), neuromodulators (i.e. Botox, Xeomin, etc), and dermal filler.
HOW TO USE THE HYDRA NEEDLE
Microneedling treatments typically cost anywhere between £200-350. But the truth is that you don’t need to pay these extortionate fees as long as you’re using a device below 0.6mm and can follow the proper technique used by professionals. We’ve detailed everything you need to know in the steps below along with some tips.
Step 1: Disinfect your Hydra Needle
Disinfect your device by letting it soak in 70 per cent isopropyl alcohol for approximately 5 to 10 minutes. Leave it to dry on a clean surface such as a paper or cotton towel.
Step 2: Wash your face
Thoroughly cleanse your face using a gentle pH-balanced cleanser.
If you’re using a length of 0.5mm or longer, you’ll also need to wipe down your face with 70 per cent isopropyl alcohol before the microneedling process. You can do this after applying numbing cream if you require it.
Step 3: Apply numbing cream (optional)
Depending on your tolerance, you may need to apply an anaesthetic cream. Follow the instructions the manufacturer provides on or in the packet and be sure to completely wipe it off before you start needling. Typically, it takes up to 30 minutes for the topical anaesthetic to work.
Step 4: Prepare your Hydra Needle
After your Hydra Needle has been sterilised and dried:
Pour your serum of choice into the glass bottle
Place the top on and screw it tightly
Shake the Hydra Needle gently from side to side several times to bring the serum to the tip
Press the button in the centre if you need to help the serum exit
Step 5: Begin microneedling
If you intend on treating your entire face instead of specific areas of concern, splitting your face into sections will make the whole process easier. You should start on the right cheek and right side of the nose, move to the upper lip and the neck area from the right to the centre. Then complete the forehead and the other side of your face.
Now for the technique:
Stamp the Hydra Needle straight down on the areas you wish to treat
Use only very gentle to moderate pressure, depending on the thickness of skin on the area. Never use excessive force
Go over every region you intend to treat 4 times to begin with, as your skin adjusts, you can gradually increase this to 6-8 times.
Step 6: Aftercare
Apply petroleum jelly to the treatment area.
Using this device enables the user to restorethe barrier function of the skin, eliminate folds, improve the complexion of the skin, and reduce pores, while getting a smooth, resilient, firm and hydrated skin.
