This instrument was pioneered by world renowned reconstructive surgeon Dr Des Fernandes, the Founder and Scientific Director of Environ. It has a smooth action roller head embedded with durable 0.1 mm stainless steel micro-needles for use on the face and neck.
When rolled against skin’s surface, the Cosmetic Roll-CIT’s micro-needles create micro-channels in the upper layers of the skin allowing for improved penetration and enhanced absorption of their product’s active ingredients into deeper layers of the dermis.
Collagen and elastin are fibers that make up the supporting structure of the skin. Collagen gives skin its firmness while elastin keeps skin tight. Both of these fibers are plentiful in young skin and start to break down with natural aging and as a result of sun exposure.
While there are lots of collagen and elastin creams available these molecules are far too large to penetrate the skin. The only way to boost collagen and elastin in the skin is to turn on the fibroblast cells that produce these fibers. This can be done using cosmeceuticals containing prescription retinoids, retinol, alpha hydroxys or peptides and by having procedures like microdermabrasion, chemical peels and laser resurfacing.
The increased penetration of the vitamins, antioxidants and peptides into lower layers of the dermis leads to increased concentrations, and elevated fibroblast activation, which in turn enhances the natural production of collagen and elastin.
Environ’s Cosmetic CIT Instruments are the latest breakthrough in skin care treatments, exponentially increasing the line’s effectiveness compared to standard topical application.
Skin needling is not painful, does not damage the skin, and can be performed on the face and all areas of the body.
