Skin Roller therapy (also referred to as skin needling, dermal rolling and micro-needling) is performed with 192 high-grade medical stainless steel micro needles mounted on a small wheel that gently rolls over the face and painlessly penetrates the skin’s upper surface. This simple but revolutionary treatment provides multiple benefits:
- Research has demonstrated that the effectiveness of the active ingredients in topically applied skin care products (such as Vitamin A and C) is greatly improved when an intervention allows those ingredients to reach below the outer surface of the skin.
- Rollers are proven to increase the absorption of the active ingredients in creams, lotions, and serums by up to 1000%.
- Rollers create thousands of micro-channels in the skin that allow nutrients to absorb; the channels close after several minutes, locking in the anti-aging nutrients and anti-oxidants.
- Rollers stimulate collagen growth that results in the improvement of the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and stretch marks.
The length of the micro-needle varies significantly among skin rollers; some rollers have micro-needles 2mm or longer. These are designed for use with anesthesia in a clinical setting. SkinMedix offers the 0.5 through 1.5mm length which are safe, painless and meant for home use by adult consumers.
Micro needle roller therapy originated and has become popular throughout Europe. In the USA, consumer-version skin rollers are gaining in popularity and have enjoyed recent features on the Rachel Ray Show and in Elle Magazine. Other skincare companies offer comparable devices at prices up to $118. SkinMedix is pleased to offer a high-quality, sterilized roller at a significant discount and recommends its use to enhance the positive effects of our award-winning skincare products. Micro-needling is performed twice weekly and this product may be used for 3-4 weeks in accordance with the package directions.
