Sorry it's been a while things have been rather busy:
But I am back....and with a slightly different angle. I recently got my dream job working for the company Dermapure who specialise in Cosmeceutical treatments and products. As I am in training a lot at the start of my job I thought I would share some of the treatments I have had done.
Last Weeks treatment was Dermal rollering. The concept is to run titanium needles on a roller over the skin to create controlled injury. Your skin then thinks it is injured and sends all the collagen, elastin etc to the area and starts to heal and rebuild the skin. Brilliant for evening complexion and amazing for acne scarring sufferers.
I had a 0.5mm roller** and i'm not going to lie it's not the most pleasant of treatments but it's totally worth it.
Me with make up on
No make-up (eye make up left on)
They pull the skin taught and work over your whole face going backwards and forwards
You can work closely up to the eyes and lips without going over them
Instantly after - slightly swollen and you can see the redness, feels a bit tight but doesn't hurt afterwards
You can see the redness on my neck - for the rest of the day it felt like I had sun burn and was tender - this is a normal reaction
I'm a bit crap as I forgot to get a photo of the end result: I saw a definite difference in my skin, it looked firmer and clearer I would definitely recommend this treatment to anyone.
- Acne Scarring
- No prepping
- Quick Treatment
- Little down time (time to heal) - On the day it was tender, next day it was fine =)
Have a consultation at your nearest clinic if you are interested
** This is Dermapure's version of the roller, there are other brands out there and all have their own protocols. The 0.5mm can be performed by a beautician and a 0.25mm can be used for home use. This may differ between companies/brands and you should always follow their guidelines and advice.
