How does it work?
The procedure involved in treatment with the Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller is commonly known as Skin Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy and is designed to trigger new collagen synthesis in the skin, leading to younger, brighter and healthier-looking skin. As you roll the device over your skin, numerous, ultra-fine micro-needles designed to penetrate through the epidermis create microscopic punctures on the skins surface. By opening the skin in this way you not only dramatically increase the penetration of any topical product, increasing its efficacy, but you also create miniature perforations that stimulate the skins healing mechanisms, increasing production of many important factors for a healthy skin.
The concept of Skin Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy is based on the skins natural ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical damage, such as cuts, burns and other abrasions. Immediately after an injury occurs to the skin, our body reuses the damaged collagen and elastin fibres as well as other damaged skin components to produce new ones. Skin Needling allows for controlled induction of the skins self repair mechanism by creating micro-“injuries” in the skin which trigger new collagen synthesis, yet does not pose the risk of permanent scarring.
What can Dermaroller do for me?
Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller dramatically enhance the penetration of active ingredients from your topical creams and serums, leading to a massive increase in their efficacy. The Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller available in 0.2mm and 0.3mm for home use, have sharp, durable titanium needles that do not cause appreciable pain or bleeding.
The Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller in conjunction with Medik8 cosmeceuticals stimulates new collagen production, thereby leading to a visible reduction of wrinkles and scars, as well as increase in skin firmness. Thickening of the skin caused by regular use of the Medik8 Titanium Skin Needling device significantly reduces the visibility of broken capillaries as well as uneven pigmentation.
Expect to see a visible improvement in skin appearance after just one month of regular use of the device.
