Similar to microneedling, Integrity Hydra Needle ® or microchanneling, uses 20 thin 24K gold tipped needles to make tiny holes in the top layer of skin. The difference with the Integrity Hydra Needle ®, is that the needles infuse beneficial serums, and vitamins, including neuromodulators (tox), deeper into the skin than with topical applications alone.

It is estimated that only about four to eight percent of serums truly penetrate into the skin. They have a hard time traveling through your outer layer of skin, which is why many topical treatments do not have significant results. Microchanneling is similar to microneedling where tiny needles create microscopic punctures in the skin to trigger the body’s natural wound-healing response to stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin. The difference with hydra needling, is that the reservoir connected to the needles can deliver beneficial customized serums as the device punctures the skin. The Integrity Hydra Needle contains 20 titanium, 24K gold plated,  short, vertical needles that provide a less aggressive method for treating fine wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, age spots, and acne scars, whereas microneedling creates more significant trauma to encourage collagen creation. Hydra Needle is a great alternative for anyone who wants a minimally invasive procedure with a shorter downtime than traditional microneedling. On the other hand, microneedling may be a better option for someone who has deep wrinkles or scarring. Some of the solutions placed in the hydra needle can include but are not limited to: platelet rich plasma (PRP), hyaluronic acid, neurotoxins (i.e. Botox®, Dysport®), vitamin C, B vitamins, growth factors, peptides, and exosomes. In addition to stimulating collagen production for skin plumping, the beneficial cocktails placed in the hydra needle can: decrease oil production in the skin, clear congestion by increasing oxygenation in the dermis and epidermis, improve skin hydration from the inside out, reduce discomfort of overdried skin, restore the mineral and ionic balance of the skin, reduce pore size, tighten skin, decrease sweat around the upper lip, forehead and hairline, and give skin an overall radiant glow.

The procedure can take 30-40 minutes, and starts with skin cleansing, application of a topical numbing cream for up to 30 minutes. Minimal discomfort is then felt as the skin is stamped with the hydra needle over the face. The neck and decollete can also be added for an additional fee. The majority of patients observe a plumping and brightness effect immediately. However, benefits are normally visible three to seven days following treatment and typically last three to four months (depending on the condition of your skin, overall skin quality, and recommended treatment plan). Immediately following your procedure, you will want to avoid direct sun exposure to treated areas, saunas, exercise and sweating for up to 2 days. This treatment can be performed as frequently as once every 1 to 3 months, since several treatments throughout the year will continue to enhance your skin quality over time. Your Hydra Needle treatments are most effective when administered three times, four to six weeks apart. Solis Health and Beauty offers Hydra Needle to patients wanting hydrated and glowing skin.

A Hydra Needle pierces the skin at 90°, while a roller pierces the skin at an angle. It is ideal to pierce the skin straight on to ensure the effectiveness of the serum to reach the deeper layers of skin.

Do not wear makeup for up to 12 hours, or use mineral based makeup if you must apply. Do wear a mineral based sunscreen beginning the following day. Do not work out immediately after your Hydra Needle treatment.

The treatment at most should feel slightly uncomfortable, but not painful, after the application of a topical numbing cream.
