The Image A.D.S works by breaking up damaged skin cells and causing the body to produce new collagen. The derma roller won’t remove stretch marks after one or two treatments, but when the process is repeated, the dermal layers of the skin increase in thickness and the stretch gradually fade away, replaced by healthy, smooth skin.
In addition to creating new collagen, the microneedling needles create micro channels in the skin, allowing any applied skincare products to penetrate to deeper skin layers than they would normally.
Research has shown that normally, only 0.3% of the active ingredients in cosmetics can penetrate the skin; the remaining 97.7% simply sits on skin and is effectively wasted. The derma roller is proven to increase absorption by up to 3000%, meaning that 75-85% of active ingredients penetrate through the epidermis to the dermis. So combining your home microneedling treatment with the right products can dramatically speed up the repair process.
