Roll Your Way To A More Youthful Skin

This topic has been on everybody’s lips. Skincare Professionals and enthusiasts have been blown away by the positive results. It has become wildly popular and is still being described as the best thing in skincare. Skin needling also known as (CIT) Collagen Induction Therapy which also improves the absorption of active ingredients.
This rolling device is coated with fine needles creating microscopic channels through the deeper layers (Dermis) of the skin causing an injury. This controlled injury triggers the body’s natural defence mechanism to repair and accelerate wound healing and stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin in the area. The skin becomes thicker and plumper leaving a healthy, youthful appearance.
Which roller to use
The needles may range from 0.2mm to 3mm in length. A 0.2mm and 0.5mm roller can be used on the face and will mostly be suitable for home use. The fine delicate needles will be long enough to penetrate through the top layers (epidermis) of the skin stimulating collagen product and product penetration. This home treatment is a painless and highly effective procedure.
Longer needles ranging from 1mm to 2mm will be used on the face for treating pigmentation, ageing and scarring. This will be done in the salon where a topical anaesthetic will be applied prior to the treatment, to numb the area. For best results six treatments can be done every 4 to 6 weeks.
Cellulite and stretch marks can also be treated effectively. The needle and roller size will depend on the area and between light and stubborn cellulite.
I recommend using the ENVIRON cosmetic Roll-CIT containing ultra-fine microneedles. Perfect for home rolling. This will make small channels through the skin for better product absorption, helping with early stages of ageing and improving skin texture. It can be introduced every 3rd night and can progress to every night.
The Dermafix MT Microneedle Roller has high quality stainless steel needles, ensuring that the roller does not rust and the highest level of hygiene is maintained. This is a perfect treatment alternative to encourage the absorption of active ingredients.
Anyone can benefit from Skin Needling
By using the right topical serums, you can achieve the best results for your skin.
1. Fine lines and Wrinkles
2. Premature Ageing
3. Hyper-pigmentation
4. Scars and acne scarring
5. Cellulite and Stretch Marks
6. Rough skin texture
Although skin needling rapidly increases superficial erythema (increased blood flow), this minimal invasive procedure has no long-term side effects. Your skin may feel sunburnt and be slightly swollen and sensitive for a couple of hours.
