What is the treatment?
Skin needling is a procedure that involves puncturing the skin multiple times with small needles to stimulate the skin to start form collagen and elastin production – smoothing the skin and promote scar or stretch mark reduction through the skins natural wound healing process. The effects of skin needling differ according to needle gauge, length and the manual pressure that’s used with the roller. Therefore the level of skin invasion and subsequent inflammation on the skin can. As effective as IPL, laser resurfacing, fractional laser and medium depth chemical peel treatments.

Why should I consider it?
This is the ideal treatment to do year round being non ablative – as the risk of photo damage is less due to being non ablative treatment. Medical needling improves skin texture, tightening and lifts the skin by stimulatining collagen. This reduces lines and wrinkles and improves scars ( acne scars, stretch marks in the skin. By doing this pore size is improved and skin is rejuvenated. Medical needling allows us to treat deep set pigmentations by breakup the solid pigment in the skin and allowing pigmentation prevention ingredients to be delivered to correct area in the skin. Collagen takes up to 3 months to mature and patients is needed with this treat for correct results to be obtained.

  • Black Head Black Friday⚫️ // Let's clear out the blockage⠀
⠀
Do you struggle to keep those constant black heads away?⠀
⠀
Blackhead aka comedones are formed due to open pores that are clogged by dead skin cells and sebum. The blocked pore reacts with oxygen in the air, causing it to turn black.⠀
⠀
One misconception is that blackheads are dirt in your pores. Blackheads have nothing to do with dirt. When your skin's natural cell turnover process is sluggish, your pores collect a backlog of oil and dead skin cells.
⠀
Just remember, that you may not be able to completely rid your skin of comedones, but you can refine your pore size to minimize the appearance of them. ⠀
This is why I would suggest using a retinoid to help increase the cell turnover rate, keeping your pores clear.⠀
Happy weekend 🌿

First impressions usually last, and hands can be the way to project that. We greet each other by hand gesture and shaking. Think about it... shaking hands with someone is often your first point of contact with them.⠀
⠀
Hand grooming - this is a small detail,that we all should actually pay attention to. ⠀

  • Whats New (s) // LUNA 2 mini ⠀
⠀
Customise your cleansing experience. ⠀
⠀
Do you ever feel like your cleanser just doesn't clean your skin enough and you need something more? Something that removes all the dirt and impurities? However, over cleansing with the wrong cleanser can do more harm to your skin than good. So what do you do?⠀
⠀
This is when I discovered the LUNA 2.⠀
⠀
LUNA 2 is a unisex cleansing tool suitable for all skin types. It drives away dead skin cells and unclogs 99.5% of pores from dirt and oil aka make up. ⠀
⠀
And unlike other cleansing devices with bristles that require excess sterilisation and transfer bacteria onto your skin, the LUNA 2 is made from an ultra-hygienic silicone that is nonporous and resist bacteria buildup. Preventing transfer of bacteria (??) and making your skin glow. ⠀
⠀
For more info on this product please email me.⠀

  • Saturday skincare tip // ⠀
Remember Sun burn fades but Sun Damages last.⠀
⠀
Even on cloud covered days UVA rays damage to your skin is still the same. So wear you SPF daily even when in door or out doors.⠀
⠀
Our darken skin types skin will even darken with SPF applied because of the type of melanin by just daily exposure but it is the damage that you want to avoid.⠀
Our lighter skin type are less fortunate and our damage is obtained quicker.⠀
⠀
So look after your skin - you would regret the good choices you make today.⠀

  • Men's Health // Movember 
Skincare / Skin health should be as important to men as it is to women.

As November is the month to bring awareness to men's health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men's suicide. I think we should also bring awareness to skin health as men actually have a higher rate of skin cancer than women. 
When it comes to the skin, men have thicker, more oily skins with larger pores. 
So cleansing it properly should be essential to avoid build up of dead skin cells, clogging of pores and to make sure you remove the dirt and impurities off the skin.

For all men suffering from beard ingrown hair aka 
Pseudofolliculitis Barbae.

I recommended the Luna 2 - 3-In-1 Facial Scrub Brush, Pre-Shaving& Anti-Aging Device.

Easy to use and resulting in your razor blades to last twice as long. For more info please contact me.  #movember #menskincare #skincaretip #awareness #testicularcancer #prostatecancer #skincancer #skinhealth #layersskin #foreo #luna2 #folliculitis
