Does Skin Microneedling Help Wrinkles?

Microneedling is one of the best ways to penetrate your wrinkles and give you radiant skin appearing 10 years younger in as little as the 1st treatment! After your Skin Needling treatment, the Proper use of At Home Products is essential for glowing and hydrated skin!   Microneedling treats light scarring and fine to deep wrinkles. Using a machine for the procedure, the needle cluster is gently inserted into the epidermis and top layer of the dermis.   Microneedling promotes the natural reproduction of collagen and elastin, making the skin feel smoother and tighter. We treat only the area that needs attention. We do not work on any tissue outside the boundaries of the wrinkles or scar tissue, as this will make the wrinkle appear even deeper.   Microneedling stimulates the body’s natural wound-healing reaction to produce natural collagen.   With microscopic punctures in the epidermis/dermis, Microneedling is minimally invasive with little damage to the epidermis/dermis.   Clients who choose Microneedling procedures have minimal ‘down time’ and swelling, and most people return to work the following day.   What Is the Needle Depth of Penetration? The insertion depth of the needle is approximately .07mm, but this measurement depends on the severity of the wrinkles and the client’s desired results. For fine wrinkles, we barely insert the needle into the skin, for heavy wrinkles the needle penetration is deeper.   What Contributes to Wrinkles and The Loss of Collagen?

Selecting Anti-Aging Skin Care Products

Alicia Shapira shares her insider tips Shopping for an anti-aging skin care product can feel like a hit-or-miss experience. With so many choices, it can be difficult to know which products to choose. Did you know? Most dermatologists recommend you start using anti-aging skin care products once you hit the age of 30? We can’t stop time, so these 6 tips can help you shop with confidence!
  1. Start with sunscreen and moisturizer: Dermatologists agree that sunscreen and moisturizer are the two most-effective anti-aging products you can buy. Using these every day can make a noticeable difference.
When shopping for sunscreen, select one that offers all of the following:
  • Broad spectrum
  • SPF 30 (or higher)
  • Water resistance
An anti-aging moisturizer helps to minimize fine lines. It is so effective that moisturizer is the secret ingredient in many anti-aging products. Using a moisturizer with sunscreen is fine. Just be sure that the product offers broad-spectrum coverage and an SPF of 30 or higher. If you will spend time outdoors during the day, you should apply a sunscreen that offers broad-spectrum protection, SPF 30 (or higher), and water resistance. Be sure to reapply your sunscreen every two hours while outdoors.
  1. Treat your #1 aging-skin concern: Give sunscreen and moisturizer a few weeks to work. Then look at your skin. Is there still a sign of aging that bothers you? By focusing on one concern, such as wrinkles or dark spots, you’ll get the best results. Look for a product that targets your concern. There are two reasons for this:
  • No product can treat all signs of skin aging.
  • Using more than one anti-aging product in a few days or weeks can irritate the skin, making you look older.
  1. Buy a product formulated for your skin type: Your sunscreen, moisturizer, and other anti-aging skin care products will work best if they are formulated for your skin type. For example, if your skin tends to be oily, select a moisturizer made for oily skin. If you have sensitive skin, you want to see the words “sensitive skin” on the label.
This is important because no one product works for everyone.
  1. Read product labels and select a product that offers all of the following:
  • Hypoallergenic- The product can still cause an allergic reaction, but there is less risk.)
  • Non-comedogenic or non-acnegenic- does not cause acne or clog pores
  • Consumer hotline- to contact for questions
  1. Have realistic expectations: Exaggerated promises, such as look 10 years younger overnight or quickly reduces all signs of aging, are too good to be true. It’s important to remember that anti-aging skin care products deliver modest results. You cannot get the results of a facelift from a cream.
“Clinically proven” means that the product was given to consumers to try. It does not mean the product underwent clinical trials and received approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
  1. Select a product within your price range: It’s human nature to think that the more expensive the product, the better the results. Effective anti-aging products come in all price ranges. But this is not always the case. Neutrogena works just as wonderfully as Dermalogica, and other higher end product lines.
