If you have been using Environ products for a while it may be time to add the facial roller into your regime to ensure you are getting the most from your products.
So let me begin by explaining a little bit about the facial roller…..
Environ Cosmetic Roll-CIT (Collagen Induction Therapy) is a hand held needling device designed to dramatically increase the effectiveness of Environ skin care products by allowing improved penetration of vitamins into the active layers of the skin. This instrument has a smooth action roller head embedded with 0.1mm stainless steel microneedles for use on the face and neck. It retails at £69
Why should you use it?
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 than by simply applying the products topically. The higher the levels of vitamin A and vitamin C that can penetrate into the lower layers of the epidermis, the more collagen can be made. Therefore allowing natural collagenesis to occur.
Use of the Cosmetic ROLL-CIT™ will help restore skin tightness in the early stages of ageing, speed up the reduction of pigmented marks, thicken thin skin, smooth fine lines, soften scars and reduce 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 and raised moles or warts.
How should you use it?
The skin needs to be well prepared with mild levels of vitamin A before you can start needling (Usually on level 3 AVST or equivalent)
We would recommend you start by using the roller twice a week and slowly increasing to daily use.
Roll each section vertically, horizontally and obliquely for 3 -5 minutes using mild but firm pressure.
Rinse your roller after each use with warm water and cleanse once a week with Environ instrument cleansing solution.
If you are having Environ professional facials you should bring your roller with you to your appointment, the roller will be used as part of your treatment to enhance penetration of the products used.
