This is in collaboration with âme pure – I’ve spent the last 4-8 weeks wanting to start using a Derma Roller/Micro needling at home and have heard some really positive reviews about the at home experiences that people have had. I started doing a little re-search as I think it’s so important before you leap into trying anything “hair or beauty” that you do a little reading before you jump in feet first. The main reasons I wanted to try the Micro Needling were to help with; Enlarged Pores, Smooth the skins texture, Pigmentation, to slow to increase of wrinkles in the future and to normalize oily skin. Now these are my personal reasons for wanting to use the Micro Needling every person will be completely different with completely different skin, the great thing is that Micro Needling caters to all skin types with all different skin issues.
There are SO many amazing benefits that the Âme Pure CIT Face Roller/Micro Needling has to offer;
– Acne scars
– Enlarged pores
– Scars from surgery or burns
– Pigmentation or uneven skin tone
– Wrinkle reduction
– Tightens sagging/loose skin
– Balances oily skin
– Smoothes skin texture
– Acne and blemishes
I’ve collaborated with Âme Pure to bring you my – At home Micro Needling experience! The lovely Âme Pure have sent me their CIT Face Roller Platinum and Duo-Multiplex Moisturizer. The packaging for the CIT Roller is beautiful, I was so impressed. Every product comes plastic rapped in a box and the CIT Roller has it’s own tube where it can be kept in-between uses, the roller does come with a plastic protector for the head to stop any bacteria getting onto it! They send you a very detailed information slip with instructions on how to use the CIT Face Roller and any questions you may have you can access their website here where they have an online chat for any help you may need!
What is a CIT Roller? “CIT (Collagen Induction Therapy) is a minimally invasive skin treatment. The âme pure CIT Roller has laser-like results and can be used for stretch mark removal, acne scars, sun damaged skin, lines and wrinkles. The âme pure CIT Roller can tighten skin, improve skin texture, reduce enlarged pores and improve capillary blood supply. As well as stimulating collagen production, this technique of micro-needling also enhances trans-dermal absorption, meaning any substance applied to the skin can be absorbed far more easily. It is after all, the skin’s job to protect itself and piercing this shield works well in temporarily breaking down that protective barrier to allow any topical substance applied to reach the areas it is intended for. This accurate and minimally invasive micro-needle penetration increases absorption of the active ingredients in âme pure skin care formulations by up to 10,000 times!”
I’m six days in to my Micro Needling treatment using the 0.5mm CIT Roller and have seen already a difference in my skin. I’m lucky with the fact that I rarely get spots however just before I started I did have a couple of old spots/blemishes/patches of bad skin so was great that I could see how the Micro Needling helped with these sorts of problems and how fast it worked to help diminish them.. I have noticed it has began to help reduced old scaring, spots/blemishes and at the bottom of my cheeks I have a some small skin spots that you can’t see, but I can feel for the first time ever they have finally started to shift! I could see how it would really help some one with old or new acne scars/blemishes and your every day skin problems. You also need to make sure if that you’re an acne sufferer (this is still great for you and those acne scares) but you need to make sure you don’t roll on active acne, this will spread the bacteria across the face causing more acne to accour!
Does it hurt –
Using the CIT Roller in size 0.5mm didn’t hurt however it does feel slightly prickly. You need to apply just the right amount of pressure for the CIT Face Roller to work but not too much that your causing your self pain as that’s not what the CIT Face Roller is all about – It should be pain-free! For me this is the perfect size to help with the problems I wanted to correct and not causing me to feel uncomfortable whilst using it, if you were to go into a salon for the Micro Needling you can increase the needle size (this is only available in salon and only for certain skin problems on the face and body.)
Is it safe for at home use and whilst you travel –
Yes the roller is safe to use at home and whilst you travel, Âme Pure sent you everything you need to know when you receive the Micro needling pack. As long as you follow the correct care you shouldn’t come into any complications whilst using your Roller. The main two things you need to know are to sanitize and disinfect the face and roller before and then the roller after every use, it is so important that you keep the roller clean and keep it in it’s plastic casing to prevent bacteria getting into/on the skin creating infection/spots!
How often did you use it –
I’ve used the roller 4 times so far each time has been in the evening it does cause slight redness but this goes within 30 minutes, I’ve noticed a difference in my skin already. I have to admit I’m surprised as I didn’t think I would see a difference so soon! This makes me so excited to see what amazing results I can get from using the CIT Face Roller.
I will be posting a four-week update post towards mid July, I will be letting you know my thoughts on the Âme Pure CIT Face Roller, if I feel it’s worth doing and posting my before and after photos. So if your interested in hearing my thoughts and seeing my before and after’s keep your eyes peeled on here and my Instagram @gabrielle_antonia
