The PDO Max Guide to Facial Stamping & Skin Rejuvenation

If you’ve seen a commercial for skin care products lately, you’ve heard one word stand out above the rest: technology. Topical lotions and creams may advertise “hydrating technology” or “skin-boosting technology” while 3D renderings play on screen. But at the end of the day, how effective is that technology really?

While it’s true that technology plays a pivotal role in some modern skin care products, even the most advanced serums have serious limitations. On average, many of the most popular, at-home products struggle to penetrate skin deeply enough to put that “technology” to work. 

So, how can technology of one kind maximize the effectiveness of another? We have the answer that providers and patients are looking for. 

Maximizing Skin Care Products & Treatments with Derma Stamping – A PDO Max Guide

At PDO Max, we know skin. We’ve built our entire company and identity around it. And as a leading manufacturer of some of the safest and most effective PDO threads on the market, we also know technology. 

Opportunities abound at the intersection of medspa facials, topical creams, and treatment add-ons. If we can solve the primary limitation of our skin care products and treatments, we can deliver better outcomes all around. 

In short, if “penetration” is holding advanced skin care products back, then penetration must be improved. Derma stamping, or dermastamping (also called micro-infusion or transdermal skincare), may be the best way forward.

What is Derma Stamping?

Modern patients and providers are already familiar with a form of collagen induction therapy called “microneedling.” 

Microneedling and RF microneedling treatments rely on a needle-lined applicator to open extremely fine channels in the skin. Our skin registers these channels as damage, and boosts collagen and elastin production in response. 

As effective as microneedling is, it’s a somewhat intense option for patients with sensitive skin. A gentler way to simulate damage and create microchannels can open up benefits to a wider audience.

To fill the gap between microneedling, skin care product absorption, and sensitive skin, PDO Max has created the Glowpin™ derma stamp device.

What is the PDO Max Glowpin™?

The PDO Max Glowpin™ is a microinfusion applicator, a microneedling device, and a professionally engineered derma stamp in a single, compact package. A tip lined with 19 evenly spaced needles attaches to an airless press pump containing a topical skin booster of your choice. Watch it in action for yourself here.

The primary function of the Glowpin™ is superficial tissue infusion. Simply fill the applicator reservoir with your desired serum, position the Glowpin™ in the treatment area, and press the pump.

But derma stamping as a practice and the Glowpin™ as a device have numerous other benefits. 

The Numerous Benefits of Derma Stamping with The PDO Max Glowpin™

A derma stamp (or dermastamp) is a simple device—the odd one out in an office populated by erbium YAG lasers, radiofrequency devices, and other advanced tech. But this simple device can provide outsized benefits for patients and providers. Here are just a few.

The Glowpin™ is Safe For All Skin Types

Like microneedling, derma stamping boosts collagen and elastin production for long-lasting skin tightening and healing. But unlike microneedling, the PDO Max Glowpin™ employs finer and shorter needles—just 0.5 mm in length. 

This reduced needle length allows the Glowpin™ to achieve the anti-aging, acne fighting, and skin tightening results without harming sensitive skin. Naturally, this also improves comfort. On a scale of 1 to 10 (1 being entirely comfortable and 10 being excruciating), derma stamping with the Glowpin™ registers at around a 2.

Safe for all skin types and supremely comfortable, derma stamping with the Glowpin™ also has zero downtime and a procedure length of 20 minutes or less. 

The Glowpin™ is Versatile

Like “technology,” the word “collagen” features in skin care commercials frequently these days, but that’s only because the structural protein works wonders for our skin. Derma stamping “hacks” your healing response by tricking skin into flooding the treatment area with elastin and collagen.

Thanks to this collagen induction effect, the PDO Max Glowpin™ derma stamping device is capable of treating dozens of client concerns in a single sitting, including:

  • Acne scars
  • Mild skin laxity (loose skin)
  • Odd texture
  • Uneven complexion
  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Age spots
  • More

The Glowpin™ Increases Effectiveness for Skin Care Products

Our skin barrier wouldn’t be very effective if it were easily penetrated. Yes, we may absorb some of the topical serums and creams we use every day, but the process is slow, ineffective, and destined to produce underwhelming results regardless of the price tag on the bottle.

The PDO Max Glowpin™ solves for both depth and absorption with precisely engineered microneedles. At a depth of 0.5 mm, skin is nearly 30X better able to absorb serums when compared to topical use alone. 

On its own or after another of your treatments, derma stamping with the Glowpin™ can accelerate healing and lock in results for heightened customer satisfaction. Glowing, satisfied patients also have a way of talking about your practice, your services, and the results you deliver with a small add-on. 

Derma stamping with the Glowpin™ is the perfect follow-up after numerous popular treatments, including:

  • Hydradermabrasion
  • Dermaplaning
  • PDO thread lifts
  • Laser skin resurfacing
  • More
