The principle of the Cosmetic Roll-Cit™ is that the “micro-needles” puncture the horny layer of the epidermis, which is the main obstruction to penetration of active ingredients. Once this layer has been breached, the active ingredients in the skin care products can reach into the depths of the skin about 10,000 times more effectively (depending on how long and how vigorously an area is needled) than by simply applying the products topically.
Use of the Cosmetic ROLL-CIT™ will give the appearance of tighter, smoother and thicker skin. It will help with the appearance of fine lines, scars and dilated blood vessels. The advantages of skin needling is that it is not painful, it does not damage the skin and it can be used on all areas of the skin or body, including very thin skin. It is however, not suitable for use on the following skin conditions: active acne, eczema, rosacea, psoriasis, severe solar keratosis, skin cancer and raised moles or warts.
