What is the dermastamp
The dermastamp is an ergonomically designed handle attached to 80 high precision stainless steel micro needles. The White Lotus Dermastamp contains 1.0mm long needles ideal for assisting hair loss, small isolated scars and specific areas of skin requiring more focused attention.
The History of the dermastamp
Some of the earliest forms of skin needling in China employed a variety of stamping devices to deliver skin needing for both therapeutic and cosmetic purposes. One of the most common of these devices is the 7 star needle or plus blossom needle pictured here.
These devices were used extensively to assist hair loss, benefit scars and to reduce enlarged pores on areas of the face such as the nose.
At this stage the needles were longer but the basic purpose was very similar to modern use.
The advent of micro needles changed the accessibility to this form of skin needling dramatically. The micro needles made the treatments less painful and made it easier to regulate the depth the needles were use at to avoid any unnecessary trauma while still achieving results. In the following picture you can see an example of a very early stamp presented by Dr Fernandes in Tai Wan in 1996.
From this point the popularity of the derma stamps continued to grow. Cosmetically they were found to be more useful than the derma rollers for assisting isolated scars where strong stimulation was required in a small area. They are also better for assisting hair loss as hair does not get caught in the axel. Please follow this link to learn more about using the dermastamps.
Derma stamp Research
The earliest recorded research using a dermastamp was in 1998 and this showed a dermastamp's ability to dramatically increase absorption of products through the skin (1). This particular study showed that the absorption could be increased by up to 10,000 times using a derma stamp.
Since this time there have been over 20 scientific studies on a variety of different dermastamps. Most of these studies focus on the ability of dermastamps to increase transdermal absorption.
Due to the success of these studies, derma stamps are now being actively considered as an alternative to oral drug delivery and are widely tipped to replace hypodermic vaccination in the future as they appear to be more effective at delivering substances to a useful level of the skin for absorption.
This shows just how useful the products can be at increasing the absorption of products through the skin and how much benefit they can produce if used with the correct beauty serums.
