How We Do It: A Single Center’s Approach for Optimal Analgesia, Hemostasis, and Technique During Dermal Microcoring Treatment to the Lower Face and Perioral Region

The authors' goal is to describe the microcoring technique used in a clinical study on the perioral area. The methods allow for a systematized treatment pattern characterized by comprehensive analgesia and hemostasis, time-efficiency, and reproducibility. This ensures patient comfort and safety with minimal bruising and down-time.

Dermal Micro-coring for the Treatment of Moderate to Severe Facial Wrinkles

Micro-coring technology (MCT) removes cores of skin without formation of scars, thereby tightening skin and reducing skin wrinkling. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of MCT with the dermal micro-coring device for treatment of facial wrinkles.

Wound Healing After Fractional Skin Harvesting

Autologous fractional full-thickness skin grafting is a method of harvesting full-thickness skin with reduced donor site morbidity compared with conventional skin grafting. The objective of this study was to demonstrate that full-thickness skin microbiopsies can be harvested with minimal scarring or complications.

A Novel Microcoring Technology for Scarless Skin Removal: Summary of Three Prospective Clinical Trials

We introduce an innovative and novel technology that achieves scarless skin removal without the use of thermal energy. Microcoring technology (MCT) uses a modified, hollow hypodermic needle to remove skin safely and without a scar. This menthod is advantageous compared to other fractional devices, given that it has the same benefits as energy-based devices (removal of skin cores without a scar, with the added value of immediate closure along the relaxed skin tension lines, with significantly less thermal energy.

Micro-fractional, directional skin tightening: A porcine model

Skin changes among the most visible signs of aging. Fractional ablative lasers improve skin quality by making small skin wounds that heal rapidly without scarring. While they improve skin texture and discoloration, there is minimal effect on skin laxity. This study was performed to assess skin shrinkage performed by removing multiple small full-thickness skin columns with coring needles combined with wound closure.

Micro-Mechanical Fractional Skin Rejuvenation

The most commonly performed skin rejuvenation procedure, laser resurfacing, is associated with adverse events and significant expense. The authors have developed a novel device that uses micro-coring needles to remove tissue in a fractional pattern and avoid the side effects of laser therapy. The authors compare the efficacy of these needles to standard needles in a pig model.
