Professional Micro Needle Derma Roller for Face and Body

The AcuLift Derma Roller™ utilizes extremely fine, micro needles. According to clinical studies, micro needling penetrates the skin just enough to stimulate collagen and elastin production, without injury to the skin. Based on these principles, AcuLift Derma Roller™ may be very beneficial for diminishing the signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles, acne scar treatment, stretch mark removal, hair loss, tightening loose skin and cellulite treatment.

Clinical studies have shown that micro needling may be just as effective as treatments such as laser resurfacing, dermabrasion, chemical peels, IPL™, Fraxel™ or CO2 laser in stimulating elastin and collagen production. Unlike these treatments however, the epidermis (the protective layer of the skin) is preserved.

With the AcuLift Derma Roller™ there is no downtime, and most users report no pain. Studies also show that using a micro needle roller such as the AcuLift Derma Roller™ before applying topical serums or lotions may increase the effectiveness of the product up to 200 times.

The Chinese have known for centuries that needing the skin has a positive effect on its thickness, elasticity and suppleness. As early as the Sung dynasty acupuncture facial rejuvenation techniques were used by the empress and emperor to maintain a healthy youthful and yet natural look to their skin.

The AcuLift™ derma roller and related micro needling products are of the highest quality, micro needle devices available in the US. As a division of AcuHealing LLC, all products are available both to the public and to professionals (see wholesale pricing).

The Chinese have known for centuries that needing the skin has a positive effect on its thickness, elasticity and suppleness. As early as the Sung dynasty acupuncture facial rejuvenation techniques were used by the empress and emperor to maintain a healthy youthful and yet natural look to their skin. 

The founder of our company, Michelle Gellis is a Licensed, Board Certified acupuncturist and a nationally recognized instructor in the art of acupuncture facial rejuvenation. Looking for a way for her patients to enhance and maintain their treatments at home, Ms. Gellis investigated the availability of a safe, effective, easy to use, at home device. The AcuLift™ derma roller was the answer. This roller enabled her patients to accelerate their results and also work on areas not limited to the face. 

The AcuLift™ derma roller and related micro needling products are of the highest quality, micro needle devices available in the US. As a division of AcuHealing LLC, all products are available both to the public and to professionals (see wholesale pricing). 

Our goal is to make collagen induction therapy (micro needle skin therapy) widely available for men and women who are interested in a non-invasive safe, affordable way to improve the appearance of their skin or hair. AcuHealing LLC also holds training classes for acupuncturists, doctors, nurses and estheticians who are interested in learning the art of facial rejuvenation for using  AcuLift™ products.

Testimonials

- Roberta T, Albuquerque, NM

“It’s been a little over two weeks but I already can see a difference in the color and texture of my stretch marks. The AcuLift™ Body roller has far exceeded my expectations!”

- Janet A, Columbia MD

“My dermatologist recommended an in office micro needling procedure for my fine lines and wrinkles, but it would have involved numbing cream, bleeding and down time. I was not interested! My acupuncturist recommended the AcuLift™

Derma Roller instead and I love it! It is so convenient and it's not painful at all. I noticed my acne scars tightening in just a few days.”

- R.K, Easton, MD

“I was surprised that the needles would be so short, and microscopically thin…that it I could roll my upper lip several times without discomfort. My skin actually began to flake in some places revealing what looked like better skin to me.

- Kim G, Fulton MD

The change in my chin has been amazing! I would have not thought that after just two weeks my pore size would be reduced and the large indentation in my chin would be gone!

- Lucia E, Ellicott City, MD

“I had used another brand of derma roller before, but it was too harsh on my skin. The AcuLift™
Derma roller is much gentler, and the roller can fit in smaller areas on my face like above my top lip and the “bunny line” on the bridge of my nose.”

- Lisa S, Virginia Beach

“I have been using the derma roller for several weeks, primarily to reduce the appearance of a childhood scar on my chin. I have very sensitive skin and I was concerned that the needles on the roller would be painful and would cause my skin to become inflamed. My fears were unfounded, all I experienced was a slight tingling of my skin after use, I knew the roller was working! It’s only been a few weeks and I have already noticed a change with the scar, I will continue to gladly use the roller because I know that it may take some time to break up a 30+ year old scar. I'm so excited to use this product! I turned 40 this year and this makes me feel empowered that I can reduce the appearance of this scar AND also keep the wrinkles at bay!”

-Karen M.

“I purchased two. Can hardly wait to try my roller this weekend. I do assist with profrac and peels in a clinic setting which is very expensive.”
