Hydra Needle is an effective microneedling/microchanneling device used to inject a variety of serums into the skin. This microneedling device contains 20 gold tip needles to produce optimal delivery into the skin. Each needle creates a hole the same thickness as a hair. The microneedling device is most commonly used to deliver cosmetic and hair rejuvenation serum into the skin and can be utilized for stretch mark and scar removal.
This tool used by dermatologists increases how much serum you absorb by 80%, while stimulating collagen to generate new skin – effectively treating your wrinkles, discolouration and acne scars from just 3 sessions.
This will change how you do skincare
Did you know that only 4-8% of your serums and creams actually penetrate according to research. Here’s the problem you really face. You have a thick outer layer of skin that acts as a barrier to dirt and bacteria, and unfortunately, all of your skincare products. This means, no matter how much money you spend, you’ll be stuck dealing with wrinkles, lax skin, discolouration and old acne scars, unless you stop slathering skincare products over this dead skin layer.
The Hydra Needle is a device that treats your skin conditions in an entirely different way. The high quality bottle dispenses your serums, while tinie 24 karat gold-plated microneedles create channels in your skin that get ingredients where they’re needed to really be effective. Doing this even tricks your body into starting it’s healing process to create new glowing skin. At clinics, this treatment costs 1000s, that’s why this device has been custom made for your easy personal use.
How it works
The device has 20 small micro-needles 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 directly past your outer skin layer. In other words, they don’t penetrate far enough to be a risky procedure or cause pain, but far enough to get important ingredients into your skin and make your serums actually work. In fact, it increases absorption by up to 80%.
Needles 0.5mm and above can also 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.
Tackles all signs of ageing
Microneedling can lead to a 400% rise in collagen, something we know greatly reduces wrinkles and works wonders for loose or thinning skin. It’s actually the secret of many celebrities. You may have heard of 40 year old Kim Kardashian’s vampire facials, this is a type of microneedling procedure. You’ll be able to use your Hydra Needle anywhere to reap these benefits, including crows feet, ‘laughter lines’, the chest, neck and back of your hands.
Improve the overall look of your skin
Thanks to its ability to speed up the production of collagen, elastin and growth factors, microneedling can repair and rejuvenate the overall look of your skin.
Fades acne scarring
Microneedling has been found to fade acne scars for all skin types. These scars are often quite rooted in the skin’s layers that the micro-needles are able to reach. When the skin is pricked, the needles help to break down any scar tissue. In another study on the effects of microneedling nearly 100% of acne-scarred participants reported a significant improvement in their scars.
Remove skin discolouration
Microneedles treat hyperpigmentation by normalising pigment cells, peeling the skin and increasing the effects of lightening ingredients like vitamin C. It even has a positive impact in the treatment of melasma, a skin condition that appears as blotchy, brownish facial pigmentation.
Reduce pore size
Another benefit of microneedling is that it helps pores appear smaller. As it stimulates collagen in and around your pores, it causes them to appear plump and reduced.
The top benefits of this wonder treatment
The Hydra Needle is the only home microneedling device that allows you to benefit from microneedling, and insert your serums at the same time to ensure faster and immediate absorption of active ingredients.
The Hydra Needle is an easy treatment that comes with no downtime, just some short-term redness. The micro-holes created also close within 24 hours, meaning you continue resume applying make-up and other products by the next day.
The thin short nature of the 0.25mm needles means you feel no pain at all. With the 0.5 and 0.6mm needles, some experience enough discomfort that they want numbing cream – but don’t worry; you can get this from any drug store or on Amazon. Using our short needle lengths means pain-free treatments, and that means you are far more likely to stick to a regiment, get more effective sessions in, and see real results.
Full control over your treatment
This device allows for real personalised treatment. You get to choose the serum based on your skincare needs, how many micro-channels you want to create (tens or hundreds), whether to target only your problem areas or the whole face and the right pressure to use based on your tolerance level.
Why it’s become the go to device
Simple to use
The Hydra Needle is incredibly simple to use, and only requires dotting the device on the skin. It also automatically controls the penetration depth, which is why you don’t need to be a professional to use it. This means you can skip the learning curve and avoid unnecessary side effects.
Better with small areas
The device was made to be small enough to get to hard to reach areas such as: above the lip, the nose area, around the eyes and the forehead. Essentially, this means you can use it on all the areas you worry about.
Treats the entire body
Microneedling can be done on the entire body, including the arms, back, legs and face.
Safe and high quality materials used
The needles on this device are made of strong titanium, and plated with 24K gold, a metal with natural anti-inflammation properties.
Why the Hydra Needle is better than the alternatives
Less trauma to the skin than derma rollers
Studies have found that derma rollers cause unnecessary damage to skin. Due to its cylinder shape, the needles are exiting and entering at an angle, which creates tearing around the holes. With the upgraded Hydra Needle, the needles are entering straight down, so the holes are only as wide as the very fine needles. This means a significantly faster healing time.
Results without the risky injections
This device is a great option for those who want clinic-like results but are phobic of long needles, don’t want risky surgical procedures or who want that natural ‘not had work done’ look. Even dermatologists are using this to deliver botox, vitamin c and other top ingredients. For you, this means getting the main benefits of a popular clinic treatment affordably and at home.
Safer than lasers (for all skin types)
Microneedling works in much the same way laser treatments do, but instead, you’re injuring the skin mechanically instead of using heat or light. This means there’s less risk of hyperpigmentation for all skin types. In fact, research in the journal Dermatologic Surgery found both laser treatments and microneedling to be comparably effective but gave credit to microneedling for being better tolerated, with fewer side effects and less downtime.
Far more evidenced than jade rollers
Jade rollers may help with puffiness (due to being cold) and improve circulation (due to massaging motions), but there is no scientific research backing them, and thus, they are not recommended or used by professionals. Microneedling devices, on the other hand, have extensive research proving their effectiveness, and are common treatments at clinics.
How to use
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 can follow proper technique and hygiene practices.
After disinfecting your device, gently stamp your entire face, or the problem areas, 2-6 times. Do this once or twice per week, or when needed. The Hydra Needle is reusable, but ensure you do not use each device more than 5 times. This is because the needles get blunt with usage, and microneedling with dull needles can cause skin damage.
Be sure to sterilise your device before and after EACH use.
If you’re using a length of 0.5mm and over, you’ll also need to wipe down your face with 70% isopropyl alcohol before the microneedling process. You can do this after applying numbing cream if you require it.
Never use excessive pressure while microneedling. Be gentle (similar to pressing the button on an elevator). Some pressure is good, but more is not necessary better.
If you’d like to stamp further in, hold the skin taut.
Serums have different viscosity and this influences how well they exit your device. Try to choose a serum that does not have a thick texture.
Also note, the faster you stamp the Hydra Needle, the more serum will be dispensed. If you find that your serum is not being released adequately, lightly shake the Hydra Needle, or angle slightly.
Avoid needling around the eye area with any needle length longer than 0.25mm, and go over this area incredibly lightly.
Also tread lightly around the forehead where the skin is thinner and around the jawline where it’s easier to scar.
Never drag the Hydra Needle across your skin as this can lead to scratches.
Do not use irritating products, such as chemical exfoliates e.g. salicylic acid and lactic acid, active ingredients like benzoyl peroxide, retinol or tretinoin ect during or after treatment. Experts advise stopping such treatments 4 days before microneedling.
Avoid wearing makeup, sunscreen and tanning lotion immediately following treatment, as these were not designed for deep penetration.
