Medik8 is the British skin research company pioneering cosmeceutical technologies to make the most effective ingredients suitable for even the most sensitive skin, yet crucially without compromising efficacy. Medik8 cosmeceuticals may be used by everyone. Apart from being kinder to the skin, it turns out this new technology is kinder to the planet too. That’s why Medik8 is known as the ‘Green Cosmeceutical’ brand.
The challenge for Medik8 is to make effective ingredients less aggressive without reducing potency. We do this in many ways for example using film-encapsulation, chirally correct actives, non-acid derivatives and patented anti-erythema technologies. Of course, using any effective strength actives, for example retinols and fruit acids, will cause some stinging to even the toughest skins, but Medik8 pharmacologists have minimised the degree of irritation and in some cases made it absent all together. No longer are the most powerful and effective ingredients beyond the reach of people who want the gain without the pain! And who doesn’t want that? Ask your skin care professional about what Medik8 can do for you.
Titanium Skin Needling
Medik8 Titanium Skin Needling devices are the latest skin rejuvenation techniques to help restore a healthy, flawless and youthful appearance to the skin.
The Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller is a multipurpose device used for the treatment of various skin conditions such as wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, cellulite and stretch marks. It has a cylindrical barrel with precision engineered titanium microneedles which penetrate the top layers of skin without causing damage or bleeding.
Skin needling works through two modes of action:
1. The needles penetrate through the skin to provide micro-channels to maximise the absorption of the topically applied skincare product
2. The micro-channels induce independent stimulation of new collagen and elastin synthesis, resulting from the skin’s natural healing response. Ultimately, skin strength, structure and resilience
All Medik8 creams and serums are highly compatible with Medik8 skin needling devices.
The personal models (0,2mm and 0,3mm) of the Medik8 Titanium Dermaroller can be used at home.
