Gold Lift W Roller from Dr. Ci:Labo

Dr. Ci:Labo, Japan’s pioneer of medical cosmetics, had released a new facial massager, Gold Lift W Roller in Singapore. It is designed to detox, improve blood circulation, reduce skin sagginess and firm up skin.

Gold Lift W Roller features 36 balls made of 99.999% pure Germanium. Germanium is effective in stimulating skin to improve blood circulation, assisting to remove build-ups and toxins in the body. It also stimulates facial muscles to help tighten and lift up. The massager improves skin’s self-healing ability to minimize visible signs of aging.

Our current urban lifestyle exposes the human body to harmful positive ions generated from mobile phones, computers, electronic and electrical equipment, chemicals, acid rain and ultraviolet rays. Hence, the negative-charge ion from Germanium will help in blood purification and balancing the positive and negative ions within the body. This also achieves muscle relieving effects as well as reducing fatigue and tiredness.

The metabolism of the human cell is an extremely important process as it purges waste out of the body while acquiring nutrients from the blood. With more negative ions in the body, the body’s metabolism process also increases in its efficiency.

Conversely, with more positive ions in the body’s metabolism becomes less efficient and slower. Thus the human cells become weak and the body is more susceptible to sickness and the ageing process becomes accelerated. This can be further explained by the reduced oxygen carrying capacity of the blood cells.

Benefits of Germanium

While scientific research has not been conclusive, some people are said to have experienced the various benefits:

 Strengthens one’s immune system.

 Increases blood circulation

 Raises oxygen levels

 Speeds up metabolism of body cells

 Regulates positive and negative ions within the body

 Removes harmful toxins

 Relieves joint and muscle pain

 Alleviates physical stress, stiffness, cramps or discomfort

 Controls swelling

 Reduces water retention

 Relieves fatigue and tiredness

 Promotes quality sleep

 Slows down aging

 Increases and maintains body warmth

 Counteract harmful positive ions generated by electrical and electronic appliances (e.g. mobile phones, computers, televisions) and industrial wastes

The V-Shaped roller fit perfectly along face line, around eyes, cheeks and neckline to provide the soothing feel and the effect similar to professional facial massage. Gold Lift W Roller is also perfect to massage body parts for areas like under arm, back of thighs and along waistline.

Gold Lift W Roller is small enough to take when traveling, and it is a quick and easy way to relax after a long trip or in the morning before starting the day.

How to Use

Before using Gold Lift W Roller, be sure to fully moisturize skin with gel or cream, such as Aqua-Collagen-Gel Enrich Lift EX. Use the roller in upward motion for face.
