What kind of needle is the “girl needle”, can it be shot?

What is a girl needle? As the name suggests, the girl’s needle only literally means that the girl’s needle will be as beautiful as a girl, but there are still many people who ask: what is the girl’s needle? Let’s take a look together.

The main ingredient of the girl’s needle is Poly-caprolactone (PCL), also known as polycaprolactone, so what is polycaprolactone?

Polycaprolactone is a polymeric polyester, which is formed by ring-opening polymerization of ε-caprolactone in the presence of metal organic compounds as catalysts and dihydroxy or trihydroxy as initiators. Polycaprolactone itself is a kind of degradable material, and it is widely used clinically as orthopaedic implants and surgical sutures. There are also some institutions that are used as injections for filling face. It can also be used for subcutaneous implantation to correct moderate to severe nasolabial fold wrinkles. It promotes the growth of collagen at the injection site, forms a durable tissue scaffold, and supports and elasticity of the tissue at the injection site, which has a longer-lasting effect.

The principle of action of the girl’s needle actually belongs to “mesoderm therapy”. In terms of safety, hyaluronic acid injection is more recommended for filling. If the filling is excessive or the shape is not good, it can also be dissolved with dissolving enzymes.

Any injection medical beauty product has certain risks and requires the professional and technical specifications of the operating doctor. The wrong level of injection, too much or too shallow injection, or lax disinfection may cause injection-related complications such as skin necrosis and infection, which are common in medical disputes in the past. In addition, similar to the problems encountered by Thermage in the medical beauty market, whether the girl needles selected by some medical beauty institutions are qualified products are very tricky, and it is difficult for non-professionals to study and judge, which requires additional vigilance of the patients.

The main effect of girl needle is to stimulate collagen regeneration. Since it has not yet been marketed, it is still not possible to use girl needles for medical aesthetic treatment. From the perspective of medical research, its product risks and clinical effects cannot be concluded prematurely.
