Your bodies are not the only ones that need a thorough workout.
Your skin needs a good workout too. Depending on your skin type, home exfoliation can suffice but as your skin transitions from season to season it’s always a good idea to give a really good work out.
What are your options?
We offer varying grades peels, we’ve discussed some of our top facials here
A treatment that we have not included in the above blog is the “Dermapen” or “skin needling” treatment.
The Dermapen is an incredible micro-needling device that produces tightened, lifted and rejuvenated skin. This skin needling technique will visibly improve the appearance of:
– Fine lines
– Surgical, acne and trauma scars
– Stretch marks
Pigmentation and scarring is something we recommend you treat during the cooler months as your skin doesn’t see much sun.
The needling works by working with the body’s ability to re-grow and repair the skin as a response to micro-damage.
Approximately 1,300 micro punctures are delivered per second into the skin, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, working with the various normal skin functions.
The body will first release its own growth factors, followed by new epidermal growth, fibroblast chemo-taxis, fibroblast proliferation, and matrix production.
The second phase involves tissue proliferation leading to continued release of growth factors from fibroblasts, keratinocytes and monocytes. The third and final phase and the result we aim to achieve from this treatment is the tissue remodeling process, where the skin’s vascular matrix matures, tightening the skin.
The body’s ability to remodel and heal itself is an incredible resource that is harnessed in this treatment.
As mentioned above this treatment targets a number of concern, in addition:
– Sun damaged skin
– Hair loss targeting alopecia
Skin needling is an incredible delivery of nutrients for the skin. Any product applied to the skin during or immediately after a treatment is very easily absorbed directly into the skin, rendering it a much more effective than with a topical application.
A total of three to six treatments are recommended for optimal results.
