Jade and AcuRoller
What is a jade roller?
While jade rollers are having their moment in the spotlight right now, they have actually been a staple in Chinese skincare routines since the 7th century. Rooted in ancient Chinese medicine, a jade roller is a handheld massaging tool. The use of the gemstone jade plays a vital role here, thanks to its ability to maintain a cool temperature, despite being exposed to body heat. In fact, one of the ways to tell if it’s really jade in the first place is to place the stone in the palm of your hand. If it warms up, then it’s not jade.
What is an AcuRoller?
A Dermal AcuRoller (a collagen induction therapy) can help treat signs of aging (such as fine lines and wrinkles), tighten loose skin, reduce acne scars and stretch marks, smooth cellulite, and help reduce inflammation. And when used before and after applying topical agents and products, the effectiveness of these products is greatly increased. Without breaking the skin, AcuRolling promotes the natural production of collagen and elastin— which are responsible for skin structure and elasticity. Acupuncturists have utilized this knowledge in treatments for centuries.
The most well-known benefits of using these rollers include reducing inflammation and puffiness of the skin, reducing the appearance of under eye circles (especially if your roller is cold), stimulating the lymphatic system and blood circulation, brightening complexion, tightening pores, helping reduce the appearance of fine lines, and allowing skincare products to penetrate more deeply.
During the treatment
Rollers are intentionally kept cold; this helps with circulation, but it also helps your oils or serums to reach a deeper level of your skin, allowing products included in the treatment to really penetrate. The inclusion of this treatment helps with lymph drainage postOp, as well as after a rigorous body contouring treatment. The rollers are lightly applied to treatment areas before ending sessions.
