The new precision engineered medical grade Skinr””lla from Medik8 is a handheld skin needling device comprised of an ergonomic non-slip grip handle and medical grade titanium alloy needles that gently penetrate the skin, to help create a smoother, brighter and younger looking complexion.
Currently available in 0.5mm and 1.0mm, Skinr””lla is designed for use by skin experts only.
The treatment is a simple procedure: a slim barrel holding precisely distributed rows of micro-needles is rolled across the surface of the skin, creating microscopic pictures in the epidermis. This stimulates natural activity in the skin, enhances the penetration of topical formulations and increases the bioavailability of actives.
This device helps restore firmness to flaccid skin while improving its overall quality and texture, helping to smooth wrinkles, lines and folds and improving the appearance of large pores.
Skinr””lla may also help reduce the appearance of atrophic and hypertrophic scars and improve the appearance of scars caused by blemishes, chicken pox and more; it even works on old surgical scars.
It is also beneficial in lightening pigmentation marks, improving the appearance of stretch marks and cellulite.
A home use version with replaceable heads is available for clients to enhance and maintain their treatment results.
The benefit of professional skin needling is that it treats the dermis, while maintaining the integrity of the epidermis. This leads to superior results in skin rejuvenation, anti-scarring or anti-stretch mark treatments without the risks associated with ablative techniques such as CO2 laser, dermabrasion and deep chemical peels.
