- It takes down old grayish flaky skin, This gives more glow and transparency to the epidermis
- it frees blocked exits of the sebaceous glands This reduces blackhead, spots and large pores
- It stimulates the renewing of skin cells – The epidermis becomes rejuvenated
Epidermis increases in thickness
In recent research we found out that even the short needles of the homecare Dermaroller (C8) with a needle length of only 0.18 to 0.20mm (0.0078 inch) have a positive effect on the epidermis without any skincare products. Many people believe that the epidermis consists just of “dead” skin cells, but this is not the case. It is the contrary! Especially in the lowest layer, the basal membrane, we can observe very vital processes.
What influence have the fine needles of the Dermaroller on the epidermis?
The renewal cycle of the epidermal cells is between 2 and 4 weeks. In aged skin this process is prolonged. From research in the laboratories of MatTek™ and Owen Biosciences™ (USA) with the Dermaroller® we know that even short needles influence the cell communication by electrical signals, especially in the basal membrane. Transmitted Growth Factors (TGF) signals stimulate and accelerate the cell proliferation of keratinocytes, basal cells, etc. This stimulation caused by Dermarolling the skin reduces the proliferation cycle and increases the cell production of undifferentiated and differentiated cells. This results in an increase of the epidermis of 30% and more. The skin (over time) is pushed upward and finally forms the stratum corneum.
With a slower cell cycle, aged skin often has a matte, grayish appearance. This is caused by the slowed cell proliferation and also the keratin scales building up on the surface. This lack of transparency is the substantial optical difference between young and old skin. These matte scales (1 or 2 layers out of about 20) are removed by the fine needles of the Dermaroller.
Our skin is not only the biggest organ, but it also protects the body against environmental influences such as temperatures, bacteria, excessive water loss, etc. Skin increases in thickness until the age of 20 and stays constant for about 40 years. After 60 the skin degrades. The normal average human skin has a thickness of 1.5 mm and is categorized in 3 major zones: Epidermis, (0.12 mm) dermis and sub-dermis (1.5 mm).
The Epidermis has 5 layers in total; the top layer is called the Stratum Corneum. Its thickness is about a hundredth of a millimetre, and it is hard to believe that this thin layer is the main barrier and protection for our body. The Stratum Corneum is constantly reproduced by the lower epidermal layers. It is so effective that nearly nothing can penetrate it.
So what percentage of your skincare regime actually penetrates into viable layers where the active ingredient can stimulate the skin? 100% 50% 30% 10% 3% 1%
Depending on the ‘delivery system’ used in the formulation, the penetration can vary from each skincare brand to the next. Generic, no name brands probably have less than 1% penetration -clinical cosmeceutical brands probably have closer to 30%… but there is still a 70% waste of each application.
The Dermaroller helps to drive active ingredients deeper into the top layer of the skin, by a manual delivery system. It will help enhance penetration of any ingredient. It dramatically gives better value and additional results to any skincare regime.
How To Use
The application of the Home Care Dermaroller 3-4 times a week is quite enough. After the application, the epidermis is reconstructed. You notice an improvement of the skin texture, you can feel that your skin is extremely soft and smooth; your skin has a healthy glowing. The fine micro needles keep the pores open, this prevent the accumulation of sebum hence appearance inflammations. They also stimulate the renewal of the epidermis; improve the blood circulation and microcirculation. The Home Care Dermaroller has 162 needles with a length of 0.2 mm.
