Orthopace and Dermapace

Orthopace and Dermpace

The Orthopace device is effective in addressing a variety of medical conditions, including bone conditions. Shock waves have been shown to stimulate osteogenesis and treat painful bone damage adjacent to soft tissue. Some of the treatable medical conditions include:

  • Achilles tendonitis (achillodynia)
  • acute, delayed-union or non-union extremity fracture
  • calcified shoulder (tendinosis calcarea)
  • fasciitis plantaris (including a heel spur)
  • hip bursitis (bursitis trochanterica calcarea)
  • jumper’s knee (patellar tip syndrome or patellar tendonitis)
  • osteoarthritis
  • shoulder tendinosis (both with or without calcification)
  • tennis or golfers elbow (epicondylitis)

The dermaPACE Breakthrough

The dermaPACE is a new medical device. It is FDA approved (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) for treating diabetic foot ulcers. It uses sonic shock waves to stimulate healing in a variety of different types of wounds. Additionally, the dermaPACE device is approved by many international regulators to treat chronic and acute conditions of the skin and subcutaneous soft tissues (the tissue under the skin).

The body’s physiological responses to the application of shock wave treatment has been researched for over 3 decades. It’s safety and efficacy has been well documented over those 30 years. However, several of the most clinically relevant developments regarding tissue regeneration have only recently come to light. Peer-reviewed, scientific studies and the extensiveness of literature examining medical shock wave therapy is thoroughly documented. The results (both individually and collectively) paint a strong picture of the potential benefits that PACE based treatments can offer those suffering from painful wounds. While more research can undoubtedly better our understanding of the possible advantages, there already exists a vast body of compelling evidence.

How do Orthopace and Dermpace Treatments Work?

Blood Perfusion and Vessel ORTHOPACE

Blood flow is essential for wound healing. The better the blood flow, the more quickly and completely a wound will heal. In fact, one of the body’s natural responses to an injury (once the bleeding has stopped) is to increase blood flow to the area. Enhanced blood flow, increases the amount of beneficial proteins, antibodies, oxygen, glucose, lipids, and other nutrients that the injured area receives.

PACE treatment’s primary benefits come from an increase in blood perfusion (flow) to the area. Added blood will encourage healing while a lack of blood flow (ischemia) inhibits it. This new medical device allows the PACE shock waves to permeate the microcirculatory system in the area, providing immediate changes to nearby blood flow. Blood perfusion in the treated area will strengthen in as little as 2 to 8 hours after treatment. The main mechanism that benefits the flow of blood is vasodilation of pre-existing blood vessels. Vasodilation in a blood vessel increases diameter; allowing more blood to flow. The body’s natural response to trauma and PACE treatment can facilitate the reaction. 

Is the permanent makeup procedure painful, and is anesthesia used during the process?

The level of pain experienced during a permanent makeup procedure can vary from person to person. Some individuals may feel discomfort or a slight stinging sensation, while others might find it more painful. The discomfort level can also depend on the specific area of the face or body where the procedure is being performed.

To manage pain and increase comfort, topical anesthetics are typically used during permanent makeup procedures. These anesthetics numb the skin’s surface, reducing the sensation of pain. Most professionals prioritize their clients’ comfort and use these numbing agents to make the experience as painless as possible.

Can permanent makeup cover scars or other imperfections on the skin effectively?

Yes, permanent makeup can be used to effectively cover scars and certain skin imperfections. The procedure can help camouflage scars, hypo-pigmented (lighter) areas of the skin, and other imperfections, providing a more even and aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Permanent makeup artists use specialized techniques to carefully match the pigment to the client’s skin tone, ensuring that the treated area blends seamlessly with the surrounding skin. By strategically applying pigments, permanent makeup can minimize the appearance of scars and imperfections, making them less noticeable.

It’s important to note that while permanent makeup can be a valuable solution for many people, the results can vary based on the individual’s skin type, the nature of the imperfection, and the skill of the permanent makeup artist.

Is it possible to remove or modify permanent makeup if the patient changes their mind in the future?

Yes, it is possible to remove or modify permanent makeup. Techniques such as laser tattoo removal or non-laser methods can fade or eliminate unwanted pigment. However, complete removal may require multiple sessions. Modification, like changing the color or shape, can often be achieved with additional permanent makeup procedures or adjustments by a skilled technician.
