FAQs Why should I choose Dermatude Meta Therapy? √ Non invasive √ Non traumatic – Painless treatment √ No downtime √ Short treatment time √ Not restricted to certain skintypes √ Easy to deliver treatment protocols – designed to maximise client outcomes √ Immediate visible results √ Ultimate coverage with polycarbonate modules designed for different treatment areas √ No anaesthesia required – so can be carried out by aestheticians √ Recovery time within a few hours √ Client can wear make-up again the next day Q: What about the recovery period of my skin and wearing make-up? A: Contrary to other treatments, Meta Therapy does not affect the skin’s protective barrier. After the treatment the skin may show some redness, but this will reduce in a matter of hours. You will be able to get back to your daily activities immediately after the treatment and wear make-up the following day. Q: Which areas may be treated with Meta Therapy? A: You can opt for skin improvement and anti-aging of the whole face, neck and/or décolletage, as well as targeted treatments of specific areas which will help smooth wrinkles. It is even possible to combine treatments to achieve the best result. Q What will be the treatment interval? A: The treatment always starts with a course of 4 weekly treatments, followed by 4 treatments every 2 weeks, and afterwards, a periodical maintenance treatment to maintain the achieved result. The full facial treatment takes approximately 45 minutes. Q: What are the differences between a Needle Roller and Meta Therapy? A:A needle roller is a cylinder with needles that is rolled over the skin. The face is not a flat plane, but contains areas that are rounded and curved. Therefore, not all needles of the roller penetrate the skin to the same depth. Another factor to take into account is how hard the roller is pressed. When too much pressure is applied, the needles penetrate too deeply, which may result in scar tissue and skin rigidity Meta therapy is not an invasive treatment like needle rollering, it does not penetrate living tissue. Meta therapy is non-invasive and uses specially developed polycarbonate modules that remove dead skin cells and through its combined massage effect stimulates blood flow and tissue oxygenation. Q: Why should I choose Meta Therapy instead of Needle Roller? A: Meta therapy is completely non-invasive it is not painful and doesn’t cause bleeding and therefore has no real downtime. After a treatment your skin will be red, but this will subside within a couple of hours – you can then reapply make up. Q: What are the differences between Meso Therapy and Meta Therapy? A: Meso Therapy is a procedure that requires only one needle. The injections with the active ingredients are administered in specific areas, but the distance and depth of the injections cannot be controlled. Because of the larger distance and limited number of injections, Meso Therapy does not activate the natural cell regeneration of the skin. Neither does it activate the production of collagen and elastin. Q: Why should I choose Meta Therapy instead of Meso Therapy? A: Unlike Meso therapy that targets specific areas of the face, Meta Therapy treats the whole of the face easily and efficiently giving a uniform result. Q: What are the differences between Micro Needling and Meta Therapy? A: Micro needling like needle rollers crerate thousands of perforations in the skin, leading to a localalised wound healing response. The treatment is invasive and requires the use of topical anaesthesia. There is significant downtime of between 5-7 days aftera microneedling procedure. The patient will need to wear a protective sunblock and avoid the sun. Meta therapy is completely non-invasive it is not painful and doesn’t cause bleeding and therefore has no real downtime. After a treatment your skin will be red, but this will subside within a couple of hours – you can then reapply make up.
