Imagine that your skin could self-defend itself from air pollution, cigarette smoke, computer screen rays, UV radiation, harsh weather... etc.– you would probably have smooth, wrinkle and blemish free, beautiful complexion. Unfortunately, the free-radical, sun-induced and environmental damage is something our skin can’t cope with on its own. Medik8 can help revitalise your skin and prevent further damage with its revolutionary anti-oxidant, retinol, vitamin C and other cutting edge preventative and corrective products.

Devoted to delivering only the highest quality cosmeceutical formulae, Medik8 understands that today’s customers are more results driven and have higher expectations from skin care products than their predecessors. Modern women wish to maintain smooth problem-free skin for longer but the fast pace of life, stress, career and unfavorable weather conditions work contradictory to this desire and accelerate the process of skin ageing. Therefore, for the last decade Medik8 has primarily concentrated their product research and development on the anti-ageing benefits and the treatment of major skin cosmetics concerns. Innovations in the use of peptide and antioxidant technologies as well as high-dose, clinically proven, multiple vector botanical extracts gave birth to an innovative collection of treatment products, formulated to help restore youthfulness to the skin as well as target skin redness, hyper-pigmentation and acne. Medik8’s ground-breaking antioxidant product line can help combat the sun-induced damage to the skin, trigger collagen synthesis, increase the skin’s elasticity and density as well as improve the skin’s texture and brighten the complexion.

Medik8 are focused on results and, where relevant, only uses airless packaging for their products to ensure the product remains as effective at the last dose as it is at the first. Medik8 also incorporates liposome and unique nanotechnology delivery systems for maximum penetration of actives.

The key cornerstones of the Medik8 philosophy are:

Pharmacologist development - At Medik8, all products are researched and developed by in-house Pharmacologists, to ensure maximum effectiveness

Cocktail theory – Medik8 products attack skin problems using multiple clinically proven actives, each at up to 3 times their trial dosages

Bio-availability - There is no point having a magic bullet if there is no gun to fire it. Thus all Medik8 formulae are delivered to the target area either by using fat-based nano-emulsions or liposome/nanosome delivery vehicles

Airless Packaging - Where relevant, all Medik8 products are stored in airless packs to ensure all ingredients stay as fresh and as potent from lab production to final dose

Medik8 Skin Types

Normal
Normal skin is usually clear in complexion with minimal blemishes. The pore size is often small to medium, giving the skin an even and smooth appearance.

Oily / Combination
Oily/ combination skin will have a shiny appearance and an oily feel to the skin. The pore size is usually increased. The combination of excess oil production and enlarged pores can lead to blackheads. The oiliness may be centralised on the face in the classic ‘T-zone’ area.

Dry Skin
Dry skin can often feel very tight, with flaking or peeling patches. The skin is matte in appearance, with very small pores, and infrequent blemishes. Dry skin can often be sensitive to temperature fluctuations and is often associated with seasonal changes.

Acneic / Problematic Skin
Problem skin produces too much oil and has enlarged pores due to this. The pores become clogged with excess oil, dead skin cells and bacteria, which leads to blackheads and white-heads. Blemishes can be small white heads, to large, sore lesions.

Redness Prone Skin
Redness-prone (erythematous) skin can often suffer with facial thread veins or rosacea. The skin has a high density of blood at the surface due to bleeding at the site of capillary damage which leads to a ‘flushed’ look.

Medik8 Dermaroller

What is the Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller?

The Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller is a convenient multi-purpose device used for the treatment of various skin conditions such as wrinkles, scars, acne scars, hyper-pigmentation, cellulite and stretch marks.

It is a cylindrical barrel with precision engineered titanium micro-needles which penetrate the top layers of skin without causing damage or bleeding. This accurate and minimally intrusive penetration allows much higher absorption of topical formulations, such as Medik8 serums and creams. It may also stimulate skin’s self-repair and regeneration as it can stimulate the skin’s healing response.

In contrast to many other skin renewal treatments, such as chemo- and dermabrasion or laser resurfacing; treatment with the Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller does not destroy the upper layers of the skin to induce collagen growth. Instead, the Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller induces collagen synthesis by creating micro-punctures in the epidermis without compromising its integrity, without a prolonged down time and without a high risk of complications. Finally, the Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller is also the most cost-effective way of effective skin regeneration when compared to other therapies. The Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller is a breakthrough tool, simple in design and yet yielding superb results. It has been hailed as “The magic wand of skin care”.

How does The Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller work?

The procedure involved in treatment with the Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller is commonly known as called Skin Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy and is designed to trigger new collagen synthesis in the skin, leading to younger, brighter and healthier-looking skin. As you roll the roller over your skin, numerous, ultra-fine micro-needles designed to penetrate through the epidermis create microscopic punctures on the skin’s surface. By opening the skin in this way you not only dramatically increase the penetration of any topical product, increasing its efficacy, but you also create miniature perforations that stimulate the skin’s healing mechanisms, increasing production of many important factors for a healthy skin.

The concept of Skin Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy is based on the skin’s natural ability to repair itself whenever it encounters physical damage, such as cuts, burns and other abrasions. Immediately after an injury occurs to the skin, our body reuses the damaged collagen and elastin fibres as well as other damaged skin components to produce new ones. Skin Needling allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self repair mechanism by creating micro-“injuries” in the skin which trigger new collagen synthesis, yet does not pose the risk of permanent scarring.

What can The Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller do for me?

Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller dramatically enhances the penetration of active ingredients from your topical creams and serums, leading to a massive increase in their efficacy.

The Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller in conjunction with Medik8 cosmeceuticals stimulates new collagen production, thereby leading to a visible reduction of wrinkles and scars, as well as increase in skin firmness. Thickening of the skin caused by regular use of the Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller significantly reduces the visibility of broken capillaries as well as uneven pigmentation.

Expect to see a visible improvement in skin appearance after just one month of regular use of the device.

What happens post treatment?

When used as directed, the Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller will cause no or only small marks, and the marks will fade in just a few hours. Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller treatment may cause a flush to your skin that will fade in a few hours, but will leave no long-lasting redness. The Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller 0.2mm and 0.3mm available for home use have sharp, durable titanium needles that do not cause appreciable pain or bleeding.

Is skin needling safe?

It does not involve injections and therefore allergic reactions and side-effects are unlikely. It is minimally invasive, involves minimal or no downtime, rapid healing and requires simple after-care.

What topicals should I use along with the Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller?

Skin Needling will induce collagen synthesis on its own (Dry Skin Needling), but skin improvement is significantly enhanced by combining Skin Needling treatments with the topical application of vitamin A (Medik8 retinol serums) prior, during and post treatment. Vitamin C (Medik8 CE-Tetra and C-Tetra) is an essential co-factor to be used alongside vitamin A. Both vitamin A and C work synergistically to induce collagen synthesis and help regenerate the skin. Because treatment with the Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller can also enhance the skin’s absorption of the active ingredients from topical serums and creams, it is also highly recommended to use the roller with problem-targeted serums and creams by Medik8, such as White Balance for hyper-pigmentation or Lipomelt Forte for cellulite.

Why titanium?

Most dermatological rollers designed for use on facial skin are made from stainless steel, which can blunt easily with daily use. The Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller needles are engineered in Sweden from pure titanium giving a finer and much more durable edge, eliminating excess irritation caused by ordinary steel needles.

Furthermore, each individual Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller microneedle is gold plated to maintain sterility. This technology produces extremely accurate and pinpoint punctures in the skin, with the aim of improving the treatment results, while ensuring user health and safety. No other dermaroller is made with titanium needles, so only the Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller can be reused intensively for 3-6 months.

Optimum Microneedle Length

Studies indicate the Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller needles need to penetrate the upper layer of skin for best results. The Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller has a variety of needle lengths for optimum results without appreciable pain or injury.

The Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller is available in 2 versions for personal use. A 0.2mm version is recommended for patients with very thin, delicate or pain sensitive skin, as well as for skin-needling beginners. A 0.3mm personal version is available for tougher skin types, those who are not new to microneedle rollers and would like to obtain more spectacular results.

Longer needles can cause pain if not used by experts accompanied by topical anaesthetic creams.

Precautions for Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller:

  • Following treatment, the skin will appear flushed. This should subside within a few hours and can be easily covered with make-up.
  • Alternatively, only use the Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller at night.
  • Cease use if you develop a skin rash or irritation and resume treatment after skin feels comfortable again.
  • Do not share your Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller with anyone else.
  • Do not use broken skin or open wounds.
  • Do not use if pregnant.
  • Do not use if you are taking blood thinning medication or are a haemophiliac.
  • Store out of reach of children.
  • Not to be used by anyone under the age of 18.

Contra-indications for Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller:

  • Do not use on the following skin conditions:
  • Active acne outbreaks or active skin infections.
  • Eczema, psoriasis and other chronic conditions.
  • Rosacea and blood clotting problems.
  • Actinic (solar) keratosis.

The Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller for Facial Wrinkles

The formation of wrinkles is mainly caused by the disappearance of elastin and collagen fibres in the skin, which occurs naturally with age. Over time, the quantity of these skin components gradually decreases, leading to skin depressions known as wrinkles and lines. The content of collagen in the skin decreases by about 1% with each year of life. Connective tissue collapses, and skin and facial contours lose their shape and firmness.

Treating facial wrinkles and lines with the Personal Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller versions offers results similar to professional mesotherapy and micro-dermabrasion. Piercing the upper layers of the skin with micro-needles leads to increased blood flow in the skin and stimulates fibroblasts to synthesise collagen and elastin. Each subsequent treatment gradually reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

Additionally, this accurate and minimally invasive micro-needle penetration through the epidermis allows for much higher absorption of anti-ageing topical like Medik8 vitamin C and retinol serums and the Pretox peptide line.

Use a 0.2mm version if you have a very thin, delicate or pain sensitive skin or if you are just beginning your home-based Skin Needling treatment.

Use a 0.3mm version if your skin is comparatively thick and resistant to pain or if you are not new to microneedle rollers and would like to obtain more spectacular results than with Personal Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller 0.2mm.

Notice: To build up skin tolerance to skin needling, allow 3 day intervals between treatments for a minimum of 2 weeks. When your skin becomes adjusted to needling, gradually increase the frequency of use. Do not use more than once a day. If used more than once a day the Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller may cause more inflammation than is aimed for and even cause damage.

Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller Anti-wrinkle Protocol for the Face

  • Sterilise the Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller with a sterilising solution and allow to dry before every use.
  • Cleanse face, neck and décolleté using a Medik8 oneCleanse or your preferred Medik8 foaming cleanser suitable for your skin type and pat skin dry.
  • Visually divide the skin into sections (forehead, left cheek, right cheek, nose, chin, left side of the neck etc.). Using a constant, gentle rolling motion roll 10 times back and forth over each skin section.
  • Apply Medik8 Vitamin C Serum - C-Tetra or CE-Tetra and allow to absorb.
  • Apply Medik8 Retinol 3TR Serum and allow to absorb. Alternatively mix Retinol 40 Boost with Hydr8 Resveratrol Night as per the instructions and skip the HYDR8 step.
  • Finish with Hydr8 Night.
  • Clean roller with hot water and return to case, dry.
  • Treatment duration: 5 – 20 minutes, depending on the speed of rolling and the size of treatment area.
  • Frequency of use: 2 – 7 times per week, depending on skin tolerance.
  • To build up skin tolerance to Skin Needling: Allow 3 day intervals between treatments for a minimum of 2 weeks. Gradually increase frequency of use, as your skin becomes adjusted to needling.
  • Do not use more than once a day.
  • Optimal treatment time: At night

The Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller for Eye Wrinkles

One of the first and most profound signs of skin ageing is the formation of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and above the lips. Degradation of collagen and elastin fibres leads to decreased skin firmness and elasticity. Simultaneously, the cells of the sub-dermal tissue begin o diminish and the skin starts to lose its ability to retain water. As a result eye bags and wrinkles including crow’s feet and peri-oral lines, are formed.

Skin Needling with the Personal Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller 0.2mm can successfully be used to treat the sensitive areas under the eyes and above the lip line.

While these areas are usually the first places to give away age, they are also the most difficult to treat, due to the sensitivity and thinness of the skin in those areas. Chemical peels and laser work by removing the top layer of the epidermis to shallow the depth of the wrinkles and induce collagen synthesis. The peeling solution can also be quite irritating. For these reasons, chemical peels for the under-eye area are not available for home use. The Personal Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller 0.2mm offers an effective and safe method of rejuvenating under-eye and peri-oral skin in the comfort of your home. Treatment with the Personal Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller 0.2mm is painless and leaves the epidermis intact, therefore almost entirely eliminating the risk of scarring. Furthermore, the procedure does not generate heat, therefore does not pose a threat of a thermal injury and can be performed on skin of any origin and type.

The accurate and nearly non-intrusive microneedle penetration through the epidermis allows for much higher absorption of anti-ageing topicals like Medik8 Vitamin C and A serums and Medik8 eye rejuvenation treatments.

To treat the under-eye and peri-oral area, only use a Personal Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller 0.2mm model.

Notice: To build up skin tolerance to Skin Needling, allow 3 day intervals between treatments for a minimum of 2 weeks. When your skin becomes adjusted to needling, gradually increase the frequency of use. Do not use more than once a day. If used more than once a day the Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller may cause more inflammation than is aimed for and even cause damage.

Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller Anti-wrinkle Protocol for the Face

  • Sterilise the Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller with a sterilising solution and allow to dry before every use.
  • Cleanse face, neck and décolleté using a Medik8 oneCleanse or your preferred Medik8 foaming cleanser suitable for your skin type. Pay particular attention to the under-eye and peri-oral area. Pat skin dry.
  • Using a constant, gentle rolling motion roll 10 times back and forth over both under-eye and peri-oral area.
  • Apply Medik8 vitamin C Serum - C-Tetra or CE-Tetra and allow to absorb.
  • Apply Medik8 Retinol Eye TR and allow to absorb.
  • Clean roller with hot water and return to case, dry.
  • Treatment duration: 3–5 minutes, depending on the speed of rolling and the size of treatment area.
  • Frequency of use: 2 -7 times per week, depending on skin tolerance. To build up skin tolerance to Skin Needling, allow 3 day intervals between treatments for a minimum of 2 weeks. Gradually increase frequency of use, when your skin becomes adjusted to needling. Do not use more than once a day.
  • Optimal treatment time: At night

The Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller for Scars

Scars are remnants of various type skin injuries such as wounds, cuts, burns, acne outbreaks or surgeries. When an injury occurs and there is a violation of the skin’s cutaneous continuity, the human body instantly initiates its self-healing mechanisms to protect itself from micro-organisms and water loss. The body starts to produce more collagen fibres to fill and eventually close the wound. The scar tissue is different in structure and appearance to that of healthy skin and often makes the skin look rough and damaged.

Skin Needling scars with the Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller is an extremely effective way of reducing the appearance of scars, especially pitted scars from acne, chicken pox, and other injuries. Only keloid and raised scars are not likely to benefit from the microneedle therapy. All the other scar types should improve greatly with repetitive treatment.

Scar revision with the Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller involves puncturing the scar and its surroundings with microneedles, causing the formation of tiny perforations, which in turn soften the scar tissue and relieve the strain.

This kind of scar perforation leads to softening of the skin in the scarred area and gently relaxing the strained skin. Immediately after the treatment, the micropunctures created in the scar tissue fill with new collagen fibres and the scar undergoes remodelling that leads to a more even skin appearance.

To further enhance new collagen formation in the needled scar tissue and produce more spectacular results, it is recommended that you use the Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller along with Medik8 vitamin C and retinol serums.

Use a 0.2mm version if you have a very thin, delicate or pain sensitive skin or if you are just beginning your home-based Skin Needling treatment.

Use a 0.3mm version if your skin is comparatively thick and resistant to pain or if you are not new to microneedle rollers and would like to obtain more spectacular results than with the Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller 0.2mm.

Notice: To build up skin tolerance to Skin Needling, allow 3 day intervals between treatments for a minimum of 2 weeks. When your skin becomes adjusted to needling, gradually increase the frequency of use. Do not use more than once a day. If used more than once a day the Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller may cause more inflammation than is aimed for and even cause damage.

Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller Anti-Scar Protocol

  • Sterilise the Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller with a sterilising solution and allow to dry before every use.
  • Cleanse face, neck and décolleté using a Medik8 oneCleanse or your preferred Medik8 foaming cleanser suitable for your skin type and pat skin dry.
  • Using a constant, gentle rolling motion roll 10 times back and forth over the scar tissue and the surrounding skin.
  • Apply Medik8 vitamin C Serum - C-Tetra or CE-Tetra and allow to absorb.
  • Apply Medik8 Retinol 3TR Serum and allow to absorb. Alternatively mix Retinol 40 Boost with Hydr8 Night as per instructions and skip the HYDR8 step.
  • Finish with Hydr8 Night.
  • Clean roller with hot water and return to case, dry.

The Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller for Pigmentation

Hyperpigmentation is a common, usually harmless condition in which patches of skin become darker in colour than the normal surrounding skin. Its formation is associated with abnormal production of melanin (the brown pigment in the skin) by melanocytes.

Melanocytes are the pigment producing cells situated at the base of the epidermis. Our genetic skin colour is determined by the amount of melanocytes present in the epidermis (the higher the number of melanocytes the darker the skin tone). Melanocytes protect keratinocytes, (cells located in the top layers of the epidermis) from UV-induced mutation and damage by producing and coating the upper layer of keratinocytes with melanin pigment. This process is commonly known as tanning.

In response to different triggers, such as hormones, skin injury, inflammation or medications, melanocytes can start to overproduce melanin, leading to hyper-pigmentation if the skin is not protected from UV exposure. Very often, hyper pigmentation results from post-treatment inflammation, for example after chemical peeling, laser resurfacing and other invasive treatments.

A distinct advantage of Skin Needling over other treatment methods is that melanocytes (pigment producing cells) are not negatively impacted, limiting the risk of post-inflammatory pigmentary disorders. Contrary to many procedures, such as peels or laser, Skin Needling can be performed on all skin colours.

By enhancing the penetration of the active ingredients from lightening serums and creams, Skin Needling can greatly enhance the effects of any skin lightening regimen.

It is recommended that you use the 0.2mm version of the Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller to only enhance the penetration of lightening actives at the epidermal level of the skin. Using longer needles may cause deeper penetration of the active ingredients from lightening serums and creams, which is not desirable in treating hyper-pigmentation as it is a very superficial skin condition. This does not mean that using longer micro-needles with lightening treatments is harmful; however it would not produce optimal results.

Notice: To build up skin tolerance to Skin Needling, allow 3 day intervals between treatments for a minimum of 2 weeks. When your skin becomes adjusted to needling, gradually increase the frequency of use. Do not use more than once a day. If used more than once a day the Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller may cause more inflammation than is aimed for and even cause damage.

Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller Lightening Protocol

  • Sterilise the Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller with a sterilising solution and allow to dry before every use.
  • Cleanse face, neck and décolleté using a Medik8 oneCleanse or your preferred Medik8 foaming cleanser suitable for your skin type and pat skin dry.
  • Using a constant, gentle rolling motion roll 10 times back and forth over the treatment area.
  • Apply Medik8 White Balance Serum and allow to absorb.
  • Apply Medik8 vitamin C Serum - C-Tetra or CE-Tetra and allow to absorb.
  • Finish with Hydr8 Night.
  • Clean roller with hot water and return to case, dry.
  • Treatment duration: 5 – 20 minutes, depending on the speed of rolling and the size of treatment area.
  • Frequency of use: 2 -7 times per week, depending on skin tolerance. To build up skin tolerance to Skin Needling, allow 3 day intervals between treatments for a minimum of 2 weeks. Gradually increase frequency of use, when your skin becomes adjusted to needling. Do not use more than once a day.
  • Optimal treatment time: At night

IMPORTANT:
To address the symptoms of hyperpigmentation, it is crucial that you wear SPF protection during the day at all times. Hyperpigmentation is caused by UV exposure and any treatment undertaken will be quickly undone if you do not change your sun exposure habits. We recommend that you wear Hydr8 SPF25 or your preferred mineral sunscreen of at least SPF15 and stay out of sun between 10am and 3pm.

The Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller for Cellulite

Cellulite, also known as “orange peel”, is a common skin disorder affecting approximately 90% of women. Its primary symptom is the dimpled appearance of the skin that many people have on their hips, thighs, and buttocks. This characteristic unevenness is caused by the enlarged and unevenly distributed fat cells that press on and deform the connective tissues underneath the epidermis and lead to the appearance of “orange peel”. Fat cells become enlarged due to the distorted function of the lymphatic system, which should normally expel excess fat, water and waste products from our bodies. When these substances accumulate in the body, particularly on the skin’s surface, fat cells become enlarged and eventually lead to the formation of visible bumps on thighs, buttocks, abdomen and arms.

Diet, regular exercise and body brushing can help control this condition; however more spectacular results can be achieved by Skin Needling therapy accompanied by anti-cellulite topicals.

Skin needling with the Personal Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller 0.3mm significantly increases the effectiveness of anti-cellulite preparations to reduce the appearance of orange peel.

Notice: Skin on the body is much thicker than facial skin and therefore longer microneedles of 1.0mm and above are required to effectively treat cellulite with dry skin needling (i.e. without topical anti-cellulite preparations). Due to safety reasons, the Personal Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller for home use is only available in 0.2mm and 0.3mm sizes. Therefore, to treat cellulite at home, we recommend using the Personal Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller 0.3mm accompanied by the Medik8 anti-cellulite formulation - Lipomelt Forté. If you wish to commence a professional treatment regime with the Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller 1.0mm or above, please consult your dermatologist. Use the 0.3mm version (the largest needle size available for home use) to treat the skin on your body.

Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller Anti-Cellulite Protocol

  • Sterilise the Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller with a sterilising solution and allow to dry before every use.
  • Cleanse the entire treatment area and pat skin dry.
  • Visually divide the skin into sections (e.g. divide your right thigh into 4 sections at the front and 4 sections at the back). Using a constant, gentle rolling motion roll 10 times back and forth over each skin section.
  • Apply Lipomelt Forte and allow to absorb.
  • Finish with Hydr8 Body.
  • Clean roller with hot water and return to case, dry.
  • Treatment duration: Depending on the speed of rolling and the size of treatment area.
