What is micro needling?

Micro needling creates tiny pathways in the horny layer the top layer of the skin to help deliver the molecules of the products you apply after micro needling.

The top layer of the skin is the main obstruction to penetration, research has shown that if we puncture only the top layer this will increase the absorption of the active ingredients.

There a no nerves in the top layer of the skin this means we can puncture the skin without pain and without damaging the lower levels of the skin Environ use 0.1mm or 0.2 mm needles.

Why we do it?

The benefit of micro needling is better penetration of active ingredients using the roller can help the active ingredients penetration by 10’000 times. This means you will get quicker and more results from your Environ products. The deeper layers of our skin are more active, the higher levels of vitamin A and C we can get into the bottom layers of the skin the more collagen can be made.

This will help restore skin tightness in the early stages of ageing, speed up the reduction of pigmented marks, thicken thin skin , smooth fine lines and soften scars.

You only need to roll for 5-10 minutes a few times a week and your skin will look and feel amazing.

Its important to note the roller is a simply a device that will help your products go deeper into the skin, the roller does not improve your skin your products do. There are other micro needling kits available with bigger needles this has no extra benefit  the needling on its own will not stimulate collagen you only need 0.2 mm needles, it’s the products you put on after that make the difference.

If you would like to purchase an Environ roll cit please be aware you must be acclimatised to AVST 2 / CQuence serum 1. The Environ roll cits are only to be used with Environ products and we don’t recommend acne skins to use the roller.
