Microneedling & Chemical Peels
Microneedling is also referred to as Skin Needling, Collagen Induction Therapy and Micro-Needle Therapy.
Micro-Needling is the ultimate non-surgical treatment. As the very fine microneedles puncture the skin, they trigger the body’s healing response. This “minor trauma” that is caused in the lower levels of the dermis stimulates the body to start naturally producing proteins and collagen.
Microneedling leads to increased production of Elastin, Collagen and improved circulation in the area. There is improvement in skin texture and firmness, as well as reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks.
Here at The Beauty Coach 360 I use Dermica Solutions during a professional microneedling treatment these solutions consist of high-quality active ingredients that have been specially developed for use with the Dr Dermica Gold Pen. These active ingredients penetrate into the deepest layers of the dermis which increases the effectiveness of the treatment, so that better and faster results can be achieved.
Advantages and benefits of Microneedling:
- Increases absorption of active ingredients
- Increases the absorption of topical products
- Suitable for all skin types (except active acne)
- Can be used on the face, neck, décolleté
- Short downtime
- Helps to firm and tighten the skin
- Helps thicken the epidermis
- Helps to smooth wrinkles, lines, folds and crow’s feet
- Improves skin texture
- Improves large pores in facial skin scars
- Helps to reduce the appearance of indented acne scars and pits, scars caused by chicken pox and helps to relax old scars
- Helps to lighten pigmentation
Here at The Beauty Coach 360, I use Dermaceutic Laboratories chemical peels professional treatments. One of the first cosmeceutical companies to develop products using ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C Complex, Retinol, and Glycolic Acid. A peel is an acceleration of the skin’s natural exfoliation. It is a non-invasive and progressive treatment. In superficial peels, AHA and BHA (alpha hydroxy acid and beta hydroxy acid) are used.
What to expect from your treatments
I highly recommended that my clients use the homecare regimen prescribed by me to prepare the skin and get the most out of the treatment. You must start the skin care program at least 3 weeks before the first peel. Then you are ready to begin your course of treatments. A session lasts between 15 and 30 minutes and takes place as follows: cleansing, application of the peel, and neutralization. Some peels are performed as a series of 4 sessions, which take place over the course of several weeks. When the peeling agent is applied, you will feel some tingling and Depending on the intensity of the peel, you may observe a sensation similar to mild sunburn, slight flaking, or desquamation for about 3 days following the treatment. It is very important to follow my homecare prescription to achieve optimal results.
Here comes the science
The skin is made up of three integral layers; the Epidermis, our outermost keratinised layer. The Dermis – the ‘living layer’ where the structural components such as fibroblasts, collagen and elastin of the skin exist, and lastly, the hypodermis, the circulatory and fat layer of the skin. These layers all communicate with each other and work intrinsically to keep the skin as an organ, working to protect and keep the muscular and skeletal structure of the human body intact.
The skin has a natural renewal cycle which slows with age. This leads to the skin’s appearance looking dull, collagen levels become lowered, and the epidermis will flatten and thin out making the dermis more susceptible to UV exposure, pigmentation & photodamage, deep lines and injury.
Chemical Peels use both natural and synthesised ingredients to bring about a chemical form of exfoliation. Meaning that the skin sloughs off naturally rather than having to use abrasive or mechanical techniques to remove it.
