How they work & Ingredients:
C-Tetra is a revolutionary ultra-stable vitamin C serum which helps combat sun-induced damage to the skin, trigger collagen synthesis, increase the skins elasticity and density as well as improve the skins texture and brighten the complexion. Contains 3% Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorabte, the most potent and highly stable derivative of vitamin C available.Hydr8 B5 Contains skin-softening vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) and moisture-enhancing hyaluronic acid to quench your skin and provide 24 hours of non-stop hydration, pantothenic Acid - improves the moisture-retention capacity of the skin and stimulates skin regeneration and wound healing. It has an anti-inflammatory and anti-itching effect.
Medik8 only use all-trans-retinol, the most bio active form of cosmeceutical Retinol available. Retinol 3TR contains 0.3% retinol, for direct application to the skin. It is delivered to the skin in jojoba carrier oil, which has properties similar to those of the skins natural oils and contains high levels of vitamin C, vitamin E, zinc and vitamin B complex. As with other Medik8 retinol products, Retinol 3 TR is boosted with additional vitamin E in a molecular film base. Medik8 Retinol products use a novel Time-Release system to reduce the level of stinging that is very commonly reported by users of standard retinol products. It works by releasing active molecules over time rather than in one big 'hit'. The skin receives the same dose of retinol per application but spread out over hours not minutes. While people with sensitive skin may still find Retinol produces some stinging at first, the degree of sensitisation is markedly reduced.
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.
