Abstract:The protection provided by the human skin is mostly attributed to the stratum corneum. However, this barrier also limits the range of molecules that can be delivered into and across the skin. One of the methods to overcome this physiological barrier and improve the delivery of molecules into and across the skin is via the use of microneedles. This work evaluates the mechanical insertion of two different commercially available microneedle systems, Dermapen® and Dermastamp TM . The influence of biaxial skin stra… Show more
