About us

Our mission.

The cliché is to say that we care, we love your skin and that’s our mission. Even though we do, we wanted to advance. We wanted more. To make this experience better. To reach excellence in our field of work. That’s what we’ve done. We’ve made possible painless treatments for delivering cosmetics and drugs through the skin. It’s a safe, simple and affordable solution for the global aesthetic and transdermal drug-delivery market. We’ve created a whole new range of possibilities for replacing needle-based procedures in the aesthetic field. Our mission is to keep improving and to keep doing what we do best. Innovating. And make your life easier.
