What is microneedling?

Microneedling is also known as collagen induction therapy (CIT), dermarolling, or skin needling, in which the skin is repeatedly punctured with tiny, sterile needles. The Banisher 2.0 is the safest way to microneedle skin at home as it involves a controlled stamping motion rather than rolling on the skin which can potentially cause irreversible tears in the skin.

How does microneedling help to achieve radiant skin?

Microneedling creates tiny channels in the skin called “micro-injuries” that help the products penetrate deeper. This process also promotes cell turnover and stimulates collagen renewal. Microneedling is also one of the most effective ways to treat acne scars.

Is microneedling safe?

Yes absolutely. If the directions are followed as directed, you will absolutely benefit from microneedling treatments at home. The Banisher 2.0 is designed with safety in mind as it features 0.5mm thick 24k gold plated bristles specifically for home use. Combined with Banish’s Vitamin C Serum, they help you achieve healthy, glowing skin. If you need deeper microneedling treatments, it is safer to do it in the office.
