How they work & Ingredients:
A variety of peptides and Hyaluronic acid all encapsulated in liposomes. Each peptide is string of natural amino acids which together have been proven to stimulate the skin fibroblasts in order to reconstitute the extra cellular matrix. Use of Pretox products leads to the synthesis of collagen I and IV, fibronectine and Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) and ideally for use with a Microneedle roller, they stimulate wound healing and gene expression, without the pro-inflammatory reactions of other treatments. Pretox 20 works by relaxing muscle tone which is why it is used in areas treated by Botox injections; alternatively, Pretox Filler works by plumping and is used in areas treated by Filler injections.
Hydr8 SPF 25 for Normal to Dry Skin provides the skin with numerous nutritional ingredients, such as Centella Asiatica and Panax Ginseng Extracts, visibly improving the condition and appearance of the skin. A special blend of humectants called Moisture Magnet increase the cells capability of binding water and enable their proper functionality while multiple vector antioxidants, including the Superoxide Dismutase (SOD), scavenge harmful free-radicals.
Additionally Jojoba Oil caters for dry skin with excellent moisture levels and a velvety smooth after-feel. The creamy emollient base of Hydr8 SPF 25 for Normal to Dry Skin will suit even the most demanding dry and combination skin.
What is Micro needle Therapy?
Clinically proven, the Microneedle Skin Roller is an ideal solution for non-surgical and non-ablative treatment of various skin conditions, such as fine lines & wrinkles, stretch marks, acne scarring and hyperpigmentation.
Micro needle roller is a revolutionary device which has the amazing ability to naturally stimulate collagen and elastin production in the skin without damaging it.
Treatment involves a roller with needles that range from short length (0.2mm, 0.3mm,) for home use and longer length (0.5mm,1.0mm, 1,5mm, 2.0mm) for clinical use.
Roller is a barrel-like roller with 200 tiny micro needles that are thinner than your own hair! When the needles are rolled across the skin, you dont feel anything but hundreds of microscopic pin pricks are created. This stimulation causes the skin underneath, to use your own collagen to fill and soften wrinkles and scars. It has similar results to Laser Treatment, Chemical Peels and Dermabrasion, but it is considerably less invasive and carries only a fraction of the cost.
