Does the Rodan and Fields AMP MD Roller Really Work?


Well, I guess there's a reason that there is a waiting list for it!

I have been dying to try the Rodan and Fields AMP MD Roller and this "microneedling" ever since it came out in 2011 and was on "The Today Show" morning segment as a must-have anti-aging product for 2011.  This pre-dates my knowledge of the R+F Products, and is actually how I first heard about the products.  I thought being able to do something they do at the dermatologist or plastic surgeon's office AT HOME was absolutely revolutionary (...plus, I read Angelina Jolie used microneedling).

The AMP MD Roller was taken off the market for awhile so the FDA could approve it (or something like that) and is now finally available again.


My first question was:  Does the AMP MD Roller hurt?  


No.  Can you feel the needles?  Sort of... they are microneedles (not the size of regular needles) and you feel pressure, but it definitely does not hurt. About 10-15 minutes after use, my skin is red and tingling, which is because it is starting to repair itself and basically give you fresh, new skin (more collagen production).

What are the benefits of the AMP MD Roller and microneedling in general?


Before I used it, I searched a ton of websites to find a good explanation from a doctor that explains the principal behind microneedling... this was a great explanation from a plastic surgeon:
Microneedling is a form of Collagen Induction Therapy(CIT). The idea behind CIT is similar to that of many other non-surgical skin-tightening procedures in that it aims to create a controlled injury underneath the skin's surface, thereby inducing the body to respond through the formation of new tissue layers of elastin- and collagen fibres (neo-collagenesis) as well as new capillaries for an improved blood supply (neo-angiogenesis) in the treated area. The skin plumps and thickens in response to this stimulus, ultimately reducing the appearance of scars, and fine lines and other skin texture changes. In addition to CIT, the channels made from the micro-needles allow topical gels and creams to be absorbed more effectively through the top layer of skin.
So, basically, it injures the skin (not in a noticeable way) so that your skin forms new, fresh skin tissue. And what is really awesome is that it allows the serum and/or cream (in my case, I use both) to penetrate your skin.  



The Rodan and Fields AMP MD Microneedle Roller is designed to be used with the Redefine Regimen, especially the Night Renewing Serum. (The roller comes with a 2 month supply of the Night Renewing Serum)
