Using 3D printing and Wearables to get rid of wrinkles #WearableWednesday

NewImage

Could wearables be the future of the plastic surgery industry? Via 3ders.org.

If there’s one thing that’s truly universal, it’s aging. It comes for all of us, and its first sign is usually wrinkles that form around the eyes, crow’s feet and bags. While men pretend to be unconcerned about it, the beauty industry is constantly bombarding women with expensive part-time cures. But if you want to avoid Botox needles, a new Welsh innovation that simply seeks to encourage natural skin filling actions might be just the cure. Called Radara, these are patches that can be placed around the eyes and are filled with painless 3D printed micro-needles that encourage the production of collagen in the skin. Could this be the anti-aging innovation people are waiting for?

According to the Welsh dermatological experts Innoture, these Radara patches are completely unlike other commonly used approaches, such as Botox and derma-rolling. They are essentially crescent-shaped eyepatches that leave no marks on the skin, and are already presented by some beauty experts as the best innovation to come along since Botox. So how do they work? Essentially, these Radara patches mimic the more commonly used micro-needling technique. This technique is generally used to speed up transdermal delivery of substances. “Nicotine and hormone replacement patches or simple topically applied lotions are widely used examples. The active pharmaceutical ingredient – or API – is held close to the skin and through natural or aided diffusion travels across the barrier deeper into the skin or even into the blood stream over time,” Innoture explains. Micro-needling is essentially a technique that involves coating the surface touching the skin with very small pins that puncture the outer layer of dead skin, creating channels through which the active substance can be passed through.
