In the early 2000's, advances in the absorbtion of materials on a micro-scale led to the development and introduction of devices that employ very small needles: "microneedles"...
Aside from the increased natural collagen benefits involved with microneedling, the motivation was to deliver drugs by perforating the dermis layer to allow for transdermal absorption of a variety of active compounds. The needles are inserted into skin, they pierce the skin and create microconduits utilized for the transportation of active compunds.
MTS Roller™: The original American-made microneedling solution.
After extensive research and further development of the skin needle abrasion technology, Clinical Resolution Laboratory, Inc. (CRL), a California Corporation, re-invented new version of the device, called the MTS Roller™.
This medical-grade instrument was released to the public in 2004.
Today's MTS Roller™
The MTS Roller™ combines the best features of both techniques and at the same time offers additional advantages. Rolling of the MTS Roller™ over the skin will cause hundreds of minuscule wounds on the dermis, while creating tiny holes on the epidermis, which will close in hours. This will start up an aseptic inflammation process, which will result in collagen production.

The Birth of MICRONEEDLE THERAPY SYSTEM
After the advent of MTS Roller™, there was still a need to link the MTS Roller™ and the potential advantages of transdermal absorption
CRL launched the Microneedle Therapy System to further develop the extended needs and undiscovered application of the MTS Roller™. Throughout the world, we have defined entire cosmeceutical treatments using the MTS Roller™ as a Microneedle Therapy System.
