Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller

Last night, I tried my new facial device - Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller.

What is Dermaroller?

Dermaroller is a convenient multipurpose device used for the treatment of various skin conditions such as wrinkles, scars, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, cellulite and stretch marks.

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.

My Experience:

It is my first time trying Skin Needling.  I used 0.3mm Dermaroller. After I cleansed my face and disinfected the Dermaroller, I rolled my skin gently with the roller up to 10 times back and forth over each skin section including cheeks, chins, forehead, eye areas (crow’s feet) and even my nose! I felt a mild “tingling” sensation but it is bearable. My face turned a little bit red after the rolling.  After that, I applied my favourite Medik8 night time products - Retinol 3TR, Retinol Eye, Hydr8 B5 and Hydr8 Night cream.  I felt the serums and cream absorbed faster.  The redness subsided after a short period of time. 

So far I like my 1st time experience.  There is not much pain and no downtime.  Skin Needling also claims it provides results similar to Laser Resurfacing, Fraxel and Chemical Peels but at a fraction of the cost and with minimal or zero downtime!

What are the Benefits?

  • Dramatically increases absorption of active ingredients
  • Helps to smooth away wrinkles, lines, folds and crow’s feet
  • Helps to lighten pigmentation marks
  • Improves large pores in facial skin
  • Improve the appearance of scars, especially indented acne scares
  • Improve the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks

I am advised to repeat the treatment several times a week, depending on skin tolerance. But do not use more than once a day.

I will share with you the result after one month time! :)
