Let's talk microneedling and your skin.

By now many of you are mostly familiar with microneedling, but just in case you're not, here’s a quick rundown:


The benefits of microneedling are twofold. As collagen-induction therapy, and as a vehicle for transdermal product delivery.

Primarily, the Banisher 2.0 Derma Stamp technology (0.5mm) is designed to penetrate through the outer skin layers and exert effects on deeper tissues. This is called controlled dermal wounding. It works by creating micro-channels or wounds in the epidermis which stimulate a wound-healing cascade of growth factors. The skin receives the signal from this micro-damage, and induces the production of collagen-rich tissue to repair it. This rejuvenates the skin, improving the appearance of acne scarring, melasma, and more.

Second, traditional ingredients rarely penetrate the stratum corneum, or uppermost layer of the skin. This is a good thing. This is your skin's barrier doing it's job. Microneedling allows the follow-up product application (of Banish Oil) to penetrate deeper into the epidermis, where it is absorbed. This improves the efficacy of the product and stimulates collagen production in the deeper levels of the dermis.
