Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller Personal Use with 0.2mm microneedle lengths have been designed for personal, cosmetic use at home, as part of the Medik8 skin care regimen. Their main purpose is to enhance the penetration of active ingredients from the Medik8 serums and creams into the deeper layers of the skin, which leads to an incredible increase in their efficacy. The minuscule skin "tunnels" created by the roller support the absorption of the active ingredients from Medik8 formulae dramatically, which helps to improve and maintain the healthy appearance of the skin.
The Personal Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller models are also recommended for use in between clinical or medical Skin Needling treatments, usually set 2-3 months apart, and after the closure of the clinical/medical treatment programmes, to sustain skin regeneration results.
Due to minimal level of needle insertion, the Personal Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller models are safe to use at home and are regarded as practically pain-free by the majority of users.
Personal Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller models are associated with very little downtime when used vigorously and with none if used as per instructions.
See how the Personal Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller can help with your skin problem:
Facial Wrinkles | Eye Wrinkles | Scars | Pigmentation | Cellulite
The formation of wrinkles is mainly caused by the disappearance of elastin and collagen fibres in the skin, which occurs naturally with age. Over time, the quantity of these skin components gradually decreases, leading to skin depressions known as wrinkles and lines. The content of collagen in the skin decreases by about 1% with each year of life. Connective tissue collapses, and skin and facial contours lose their shape and firmness.
Treating facial wrinkles and lines with the Personal Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller versions offers results similar to professional mesotherapy and microdermabrasion. Piercing the upper layers of the skin with microneedles leads to increased blood flow in the skin and stimulates fibroblasts to synthesise collagen and elastin. Each subsequent treatment gradually reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Additionally, this accurate and minimally invasive microneedle penetration through the epidermis allows for much higher absorption of
anti-ageing topicals like Medik8 vitamin C and retinol serums and the Pretox peptide line.
Use a 0.2mm version if you have a very thin, delicate or pain sensitive skin or if you are just beginning your home-based Skin Needling treatment.
Use a 0.3mm version if your skin is comparatively thick and resistant to pain or if you are not new to microneedle rollers and would like to obtain more spectacular results than with Personal Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller 0.2mm.
Notice: To build up skin tolerance to skin needling, allow 3 day intervals between treatments for a minimum of 2 weeks. When your skin becomes adjusted to needling, gradually increase the frequency of use. Do not use more than once a day. If used more than once a day the Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller may cause more inflammation than is aimed for and even cause damage.
