I was super excited to try out the brand new Sarah Chapman Skinesis Meso-Melt Infusion System and I can confirm, it is brilliant. Here’s what you need to know about the micro-needling kit.
Lockdown 2.0 is the perfect opportunity to get back on top of our skincare and make some real gains at home.
What is the Sarah Chapman Skinesis Meso-Melt Infusion System?
Micro-needling is one of the most popular treatments offered in the Sarah Chapman Clinic and this kit has been created to enable clients to perform this treatment safely and effectively at home. It is perfect timing with the second lockdown just begun in the UK.
This is totally different to the many metal micro-needling devices on the market. The key aspect of the device is that the needles are infused with the Sarah Chapman signature Platinum Stem Cell matrix. This includes a trio of peptides, and both low and high molecular weight hyaluronic acid. These needles actually dissolve when they are rolled over the skin, and once the separate ampoule of serum has been applied.
The system mimics a professional-standard clinical treatment. It combines a micro-needling device with the Skinesis high-potency Pep8 Stem Cell Serum to visibly rejuvenate the skin:
- Bi-phase approach to skin treatment
- Uses roll-to-activate dissolving needles infused with signature Platinum Matrix-EM and low and high molecular weight hyaluronic acid
- Pep8 Stem Cell Serum with plant stem cell technology and performance-proven peptides
- Device creates painless, tiny pricks in the skin
- These micro-channels allow any actives subsequently applied to penetrate further into the skin for maximum absorption
- Cutting-edge plant stem cell technology targets and repairs damaged cells to reverse signs of photo-ageing
What Results Will You See?
The system aims to strengthen, plump and firm the skin; improve its tone and texture so that it’s smoother and more even; and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and scarring. The system also stimulates circulation and enhances radiance.
The Micro-Needling Device
The Meso-Melt Infusion Roller’s roll-to-activate dissolving needling tips are concentrated with Platinum Matrix-EM, a trio of peptides, and both low and high molecular weight hyaluronic acid.
This is used for 10 minutes in all different directions to needle the skin and create micro-channels that allow actives to penetrate more deeply into the skin.
Once the serum has been applied post-needling, you go back to the roller while the serum is still wet (wait 10 seconds max), and roll again while the needling tip begins to dissolve, releasing its active complex of peptides, stem cells and hyaluronic acid into the skin.
The Pep8 Stem Cell Serum
This is a powerful formula that contains cutting-edge plant stem cell technology that targets and repairs damaged cells to reverse signs of photo-ageing. Platinum Matrix-EM and plumping hyaluronic acid is combined with eight peptides for wrinkle reduction, improved elasticity and a stronger, younger looking complexion.
What are the Meso-Melt Ingredients?
Here’s a shot of the ingredients used in this product:
How to Use the Sarah Chapman Skinesis Meso-Melt Infusion System
This is such a simple kit to use.
- Cleanse the skin. Ensure skin is completely dry
- Using firm but not intense pressure, roll Meso-Melt Infusion Roller with needling tip across the face, neck and décolletage for 10 minutes, moving vertically, horizontally and diagonally
- Tap the serum into the base of the ampoule. Cover the top of the thin glass ampoule with a tissue to snap to open
- Apply contents of the ampoule to the skin, wait 10 seconds. Make sure the serum still feels wet on the skin, then continue rolling to activate and dissolve the micro-needles
- Treatment is complete when all needles on the roller have fully dissolved.

How Often Can You Use It?
The system is designed for use once a week at night for a period of 21 days to complete the course. The Kit contains the roller, three single-use micro-needling tips and three ampoules of the Pep8 Stem Cell Serum.
I think this is absolutely genius. I have always been hesitant about using micro-needling tools at home. This is because I think hygiene is so key and I worry that we could get slack about how sterile we can keep the tools. This is the perfect solution and also so unique and innovative with active-packed needles that actually infuse into the skin. So clever!
The roller is really easy to assemble and it feels perfectly comfortable with medium pressure rolled over the face, neck and chest for 10 minutes. The ampoule of serum is a little fiddly. You just need to make sure the liquid is tapped down to the bottom of the bottle before you snap it open using a tissue.
As you apply the serum, the heat on the skin initially increases. You just have to start rolling after 10 seconds, avoiding rubbing the liquid into the skin too much. Make sure the skin still feels wet with product when you start rolling again. This ensures maximum dissolution of the active needles.
My skin felt soft, smooth and extremely plump after the treatment. Within about 20 minutes, the redness had gone and my skin was calm and glowing. I am really looking forward to using it again next week.
