London, United Kingdom, April 24, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- A relatively new concept, the skin micro-needle roller is based on the principle of inducing collagen release through pinpricks made to the dermis, having the additional benefit of allowing topical products to penetrate deeper into the skin. Included in the recent Times Online article entitled ‘The New Face of Cosmetic Surgery’ focusing on emerging trends in the industry and alternatives to Botox and fillers. The story dispels the myth that skin needling is a painful experience, reporting that the sensation is easily adjusted to and produces visible results.
The unique Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller utilises titanium needles that are specifically designed for their sterility and sharpness, setting a precedent over the widely used steel componentry of copycat devices. The goal of the Medik8 skin needling regime is to minimise pain to zero if at all possible. Suitable for use on all skin types and for both the face and body, including thin skin treated with chemical peels or lasers.
Use of the Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller encourages ‘blood flow to the skin’s surface, assisting the natural healing process and supporting the production of collagen.’ The tester stated they witnessed an ‘improved skin tone and firmness after a few weeks’ of use. The Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller is the only sterile roller suitable for home use, available in two needle length variations dependent on the treatment area. Intended for use in conjunction with the acclaimed Medik8 cosmeceuticals range to achieve the optimum post-treatment effect, the roller is particularly compatible with Prevent and Correct serum products.
Comprised of a cylindrical barrel out of which precision engineered titanium microneedles protrude to varying lengths. These needles penetrate the top layers of skin without causing damage. This accurate and minimally intrusive piercing allows for much higher absorption of skincare formulations, such as Medik8 serums and creams, leading to an incredible increase in their efficacy. The roller can be reused for a period of three to six months making it an extremely cost-effective alternative to many cosmetic treatments.
The Medik8 Dermaroller has the added advantage of reducing acne scars as well as fine lines and wrinkles. Not only does the device reduce enlarged pores it also improves skin tone and firmness, diminishes the appearance of pigmentation marks and involves no down time. The healing period is extremely fast, minor redness will be noticeable for just a few hours after using the roller but this rapidly subsides, meaning normal life can be resumed instantly.
