This is the ideal pore minimising kit. In it, I combine SkinTech Purifying Cream, with a Titanium home roller by Medik8. This technique inspired by in-clinic medical needling – currently the hottest rejuvenating procedure on the planet!
Use this 0.2mm version if you have thin, delicate or pain sensitive skin or if you are just beginning your home-based skin needling treatment. Use the 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 better results.
Suitable for oily and combination skin. Do NOT use on active, inflammatory acne lesions.
Not suitable for dry skin.
Medik8 Titanium Roller (1pc)
SkinTech Purifying Cream: 50g
Medik8 Roller Sterilising Solution: 100ml
Use twice to three times per week (allow at least 3 days in between treatments for the first 2-3 weeks)
Use in the evening, as you will notice some skin redness after needling. This usually subsides within a few hours
Sterilise the needle roller with the needle roller sterilising solution before and after each use. Allow to dry.
Cleanse skin. Pat skin dry
Visually divide the skin into sections (e.g. forehead, left cheek, right cheek, chin etc.). Using a constant, gentle rolling motion, roll the microneedle roller 10 times back and forth over each skin section
Apply SkinTech Purifying Cream to all treated skin areas, avoiding the eye area
Clean roller with hot water, then sterilise using the needle roller sterilising solution. Return to case, dry
I recommend that you trial the entire procedure, including cream, on your inner forearm first, to test your skin’s tolerance
Make sure never to lie the needle roller on its needles, but to always keep it stored in its holding box. This will prevent the needles from becoming flattened and blunt which would increase the risk of skin damage
Professional medical needling is currently one of the hottest procedures offered by skin care clinics. There is now very good scientific evidence that using needles of at least 1.0-1.5mm length to puncture the skin can increased production of collagen and other dermal proteins and significantly reduce pore size. However, these more invasive needling devices used can, of course, only be operated by professionals in a clinical setting.
This home-use kit attempts to reproduce some of the effects of a medical needling procedure on pore size. In this case, the roller is equipped with hundreds of extremely fine, high quality titanium needles (thinner in fact than your own hair) of only 0.2mm length. The SkinTech Purifying Cream improves skin impurities in oily skin, while moisturising.
The sterilising solution will keep your microneedle roller in hygenic condition and minimises the risk of unwanted reactions and infection.
Warning: For external use only. Keep out of reach of children. Avoid the eye area. Discontinue use if irritation or rash occurs. If symptoms persist, consult your doctor.
Keep in mind that skin care products may react differently in different people when penetrating into the skin. For this reason I recommend to treat a little trial area on your inner forearm first. While this does not garantee that other skin areas will react the same way, it is a good indication. If there is any concern or unwanted reaction, please consult your doctor. We will not be held responsible for reactions caused by skin care products used in combination with this needle roller.
We recommend to arrange an appointment with Dr Stefanie Williams or our cosmetician in clinic first to be demonstrated correct use of this device.
Do not share your needle roller with anyone else. Do not use on broken skin or open wounds. Do not use if pregnant or under the age of 18 years. Do not use if you are taking blood thinning medication, have blood clotting problems or are a haemophiliac. Do not use on the following skin conditions: active acne outbreaks, active skin infections, eczema, psoriasis or other chronic conditions, rosacea, actinic (solar) keratoses, keloid or raised scars, raised moles or warts.
Allow 3 day intervals between treatments for the first 2-3 weeks. Use once daily at most. If used more than once a day the microneedle roller may cause more inflammation than is aimed for and might even cause damage.
Replace your microneedle roller regularly (approximately every 2-3 months).
