An innovation for the effective, almost pain-free and bruise-free treatment of delicate areas. The signs of aging that most women worry about all appear in certain areas: crow’s feet, eye contour, lip contour, neck (*). However, the skin in these areas is very thin and marks easily, making them very tricky to treat. Inspired by vaccination techniques, the NanoSoft™ is a real revolution for aesthetic medicine. This new needle offers a unique solution for treating the entire face and especially the delicate areas, neck and décolleté: the injections are very accurate, making the procedure easier for the doctor. For the patient, it guarantees almost no pain during the procedure and no bruising afterwards.
Accurate injection for optimum results
The intradermal layer is fundamental when revitalising the skin. It is where the fibroblasts are, which we need to stimulate to reboot collagen and elastin production. It is vital that we perform accurate injections that are not too deep or too superficial. With its 0.6mm length, the advantage of the NanoSoft™ is that it targets the dermis for optimum results.
A device to minimise injection-related risk and pain
The NanoSoft™ is made up of 3 silicone micro-cones. It is single-use and can be adapted to all syringes. It allows us to perform “standard” and accurate injections into the dermis, and to cover extensive and delicate areas homogenously.
The NanoSoft™ is around three times smaller than a normal injection needle
It improves patient comfort, minimises the risk of bruising and makes the rest of the aesthetic protocol easier: small papules immediately form and quickly spread the product around the dermis. These papules do not last longer than 24 hours.
Nanosoft™ and NCTF® 135HA: new prospects for delicate areas
NCTF® 135HA from FILLMED Laboratories is the ideal product to inject with the NanoSoft™.
I have used NCTF® 135HA for years; in my opinion, it is the gold standard for revitalisation products. A number of studies have shown how effective it is at densifying the skin and smoothing fine lines.
Containing hyaluronic acid and revitalising actives, NCTF® 135HA is a hydration booster that provides essential elements to help the skin work properly. And, even though NCTF® 135HA is not a new product, injecting it using the NanoSoft™ is extremely innovative: it guarantees maximum efficacy, safety and patient satisfaction.
Faster results with the Nanosoft™
Since injections made using the NanoSoft™ are strictly intra- dermal, its efficacity is optimised.
We generally start to see the results of revitalisation treatments after 4 to 5 sessions. With the NanoSoft™, in my experience, we can see very good results after just 2 sessions.
An innovation for treating the eye and lip contour and the neck
Treating the eyelids is always a challenge: the procedure has to be effective but not too aggressive because it can be painful for the patients.
With the NanoSoft™, I can work very confidently, the procedure is comfortable and the patients are reassured. I achieve good results on crow’s feet wrinkles and even on dark under- eye shadows by densifying the skin under the eyes.
For me personally, the NanoSoft™ has altered the way in which I treat the neck and around the mouth. These areas often suffer from bruising, which could put some patients off having the injections.
The NanoSoft™ reduces the risk of marks and, since the results are quick to appear, my patients are delighted and continue having the treatment.
The NanoSoft™ will be exclusively distributed by FILLMED Laboratories from May 2019.
