The nappage technique, otherwise known as “multi-puncture” or “micro-papular” technique, is an innovative needling method breaking into the field cosmetic dermatology. Using this skill along with Russell Health’s patent-pending procedure guides for Stem Cell Recruitment (SCR) Facial™ and Facelift™ can be used to treat lack of elasticity, dry, dehydrated, aging skin and can help to improve fine lines and wrinkles.
The nappage technique involves performing multiple superficial injections only 2mm deep at a 45 degree angle while applying constant pressure on the plunger of the syringe. The practitioner will move along the area to be treated, rapidly flicking the wrist and injecting a drop of amniotic fluid every 2-4mm.
According to the Journal of Pharmacology and Phamacotherapeutics, advantages claimed for utilizing this type of technique include:
- Inexpensive equipment
- Minimal training
- Less product needed
- Faster results
- Minimal pain
- Quick and pure reach of product to target cells
- Minimal invasiveness
See the video below on our SCR Facelift™ which utilizes both the subcutaneous and nappage needling techniques.
