She is less than half the scheduled broadcast time. At 35, Ms.
O'Banion, founder of Beauty Bioscience in Dallas, is clearly a valid advertisement for her product: $199 GloPro

That is to say, the use of tiny surgical steel needles stimulates the skin to increase the production of collagen and elastic protein, thereby improving the texture and tone, and potentially reducing wrinkles and scars.
In those 12 minutes
O'Banion sold 22,000 units (
Worth about $4 million)
According to the company's data.
For about eight months in 2016, the device was available --
In the shopping network HSN, and later Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman,
The sale was worth about $30 million.
HSN did not release sales data, but Alicia Valencia, senior vice president of beauty at the network, said it looked like a GloPro with a Micro Needle
DingTalk paint rollers are the best tool for performance.
It's also the top
Beauty tools for sale in Neiman Marcus.
Women's Daily declared: "The new worship device of beautiful women . ". (
GloPro is not the only-
Household Micro Needle
There are several kinds, the length of the needle is different
But the most important thing is it. )
Customers sigh as much as advertisements.
When asked about the results, Evelyn Savage of Salem, Ohio said: "Oh my God, yes!
The pores tighten almost immediately, the lines around the eyes soften, and the lines around the mouth almost disappear. ”Ms.
Savage says her closet is full of useless stuff.
"After watching it for about 45 years, you know when you found something good.
Tina Craig, founder of the popular Bagsnob blog empire, reports that during New York fashion week, people have been asking her what she has done to her skin.
She said: "It looks amazing, and it shines brightly . "

Craig said she was very sensitive and had to comb her hair at the beauty salon. The pain was "less than waxing, but more than threading," she said ". ”)
For example, by chemical stripping, peeling, or laser --
Traditionally the only way to jump
Start the production and regeneration of collagen, which can only happen occasionally.
But, the doctor said, the micro-needle, sometimes called the "laser of the poor", has fewer restrictions

The process produces tiny microwaves that trigger the body to fill them with collagen, but keep the skin intact, Dr. S.
Taylor holmiger, assistant professor of skin surgery at Stanford University.
This gives two advantages to the micro-needle: first, it can be repeated frequently without producing red, irritating, ugly skin such as the PeelJames said.
Second, it causes a lower risk of pigmentation compared to many lasers, which is a real advantage for a few skin types, Dr. Hollmig said.
A study funded by beauty Biosciences and conducted by an independent company found that almost-too-good-to-be-
The real result: in women aged 41 to 64, one minute of use, three times a week, for 30 days, wrinkles decreased by 30%. (
Tools, there are 540 0. 3-
The MM needle is rolled vertically, horizontally and diagonally on the face, just as the user is inflating the lawn. )
Microneedles done in the doctor's office have shown some convincing evidence in smaller studies that it works, although there are not many large randomized controlled trials, which are the gold standard, Dr. Hollmig said.
But household microneedles are shorter than needles used by doctors and spas, which may indicate that the results are not so good. Dr.
Hollmig theory, for example, believes that the production of collagen will be minimal through this conservative treatment. Dr.
However, James pointed out that a study published in the journal Plastic surgery and reconstruction surgery showed that the formation of collagen does not depend on the length of the needle, and the effect of conventional microneedles is best.
His daughter responded faster to the sales model.
She said: "If you want to exercise, it's better to go to the gym twice a year and give it 20-
Is it better to do something smaller often for two hours of pounds? ”Dr.
Matthew Avram, director of the laser and Beauty Center for Dermatology at the Massachusetts General Hospital, believes that these results may be true, but they are fleeting.
"When you roll something on your skin that will create a small hole, you may get a little swollen, which will make you a little plump and make you feel better looking for the time being," said Dr.
Avram is skeptical about the long-term use of the toolterm benefits.
"It's reasonable to really need data to justify this excitement.
"GloPro also promotes the fact that 100% of users believe in the survey that the tool stimulates their natural collagen production, although the formation of collagen is only visible under the microscope.
It took four years to find the right number of needles, which is in 10-
The needle increased from 100 to 800, seeking the best effect with the least amount of pain. (
Imagine a micro-needle as a circus show where someone walks through a nail without bleeding: It's all about a uniform distribution of weight. )
A GloPro head designed for the body was introduced in December with 1,680 stitches;
It's sold out right now-
Until half. January.
The risk of this device infection is minimal, especially when you roll it through the infected follicles or what the dermatologist calls a "scratch acne lesion.
"Alcohol, the suggested method of cleaning tools, does not work for many surgical instruments because of certain bacteria (
Just like those who caused the epidemic from time to time at the nail salon)
There will be no elimination without really powerful sterilization. (
There is nothing you can do other than buy a personal autoclave. )
Another potential problem is: GloPro says it allows your skin to absorb more products, but you may be more likely to be allergic to said products, although this is still relatively rare.
For example, in the micro-needle treatment conducted in the spa, there are reports of "late-onset allergic reactions "--
It's a serious rash.
It was caused by the cream that was later applied.
Usually, the outer layer of the skin prevents the cream from sinking deep enough to cause problems, but the micro-needle enables the cream to go deep into the skin and trigger an immune response.
On the other hand, the micro-needle can help the user put a variety of potentially helpful things into the skin.
"It's very exciting," but for this dermatologist, it's a little too close to the West now and feels completely comfortable, "Dr. Hollmig said.
