We always want to use the best skincare we can, but by the nature of what it is, it has to have it’s limitations. With it only able to soak into certain layers of the skin, we need a new way to improve the look of the skin.
The best way to think about collagen is to imagine it as the scaffolding behind the skin. It holds it all together and keeps it firm and strong. As we age, the collagen in our skin begins to diminish causing the skin to show the first signs of ageing like lines, wrinkles and sagging. It can be quite hard to replenish that collagen as it is not easily put back into the skin.
Some people opt to fill areas of the skin through injectables whilst others rely on creams to build up the skin from the outside. However, there are ways to trick the body into creating more collagen all on its own.
The Dermapen is an amazing bit of kit that provides a treatment called microneedling. This uses a collection of tiny needles to prick the skin in the key places. These are called micro-injuries, and they kick-start the body’s own healing process. This form of self-repair then stimulates the natural collagen production within the body, causing the skin to look plumper and firmer again.
It is not only great for tackling ageing, it also helps deal with things such as acne scarring, hyper-pigmentation and stretch marks, making it perfect for any number of people.
The treatment is non-surgical, which means that other than some redness for a few days, there is no downtime at all.
We think this treatment sounds amazing, which is why we have decided to bring Dermapen into the Indulgence In Beauty Salon. We will be ready to start very soon so make sure you keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates.
