Microneedling: A Beauty Must Have

Mirror mirror on the wall

Used by Hollywood celebrities – Jennifer Aniston, Kim Kardashian, Demi Moore, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, to name a few.

Come back Collagen

Collagen is the largest and most abundant protein in our body, and it is a key building block for everything, from the connective tissues of our vital organs, joints, ligaments and tendons to our hair, nails and the dermis layer of our skin. It functions much like the frame of a house: it provides support for everything, both inside and out. Without the frame, our house gets cracks and falls down.

The dermis layer is made up of more than 70% collagen. There are 28 types of collagen. The collagen in our dermis is 80% Type I and 10% Type III. Type I and III collagen are the key building foundation for youthful flawless skin. We are born with an abundant supply of collagen. As a baby, our skin is plump, firm, smooth and rosy in colour – thanks to all of that collagen in our dermis. 

Unfortunately, our body stops producing collagen in our mid to late 20's. Then, around age 30, our collagen levels begin a long, unyielding decline – right around the time those first fine lines and wrinkles appear on our faces. After age 30, our collagen level drops 1%-2% every year. By age 40, we have lost 10%-20% of our collagen. By 50, we are down 20%-40%. By the time we hit 60 – well, you get the picture. And it isn’t pretty.

The answer

Microneedling (also referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT) is the breakthrough remedy in of the treatment of wrinkles, acne, pigmentation, scars, stretch marks, pore size reduction and even hair growth stimulation, improving overall skin conditions and the quality of your skin. It is suitable for all people of all ages and ethnicity. It is no longer a beauty luxury, but a beauty 'must have' for any person wanting to look younger. If you have considered it but haven’t yet had the courage to try it, hopefully this article will help you take the plunge.

How?

Our trained somatologists perform a skin assessment while discussing your skin care concerns. Accordingly, appropriate needles are selected. Numbing creams are applied to help reduce pain or discomfort. Remember, you can microneedle your body too!

Tiny needles poke the top layer of your skin, creating channels in the dermis which sufficiently stimulate the body’s natural mechanisms to produce and deliver concentrated amounts of collagen and proteins to the treated areas of skin whilst also allowing deeper penetration of products applied.

Cost of the treatments range from R850 – R1 200. However, we want our clients to benefit from the amazing results of this treatment, so for the month of March, book your first microneedle with us for only R 700. Maintenance of the procedure is essential, so talk to our staff about our loyalty programme.

If you have any skin care concerns, phone our qualified somatologists for free skin care advice.

Having worked in the industry for over 17 years and with worldwide celebrities, I can confidently say this is the anti-ageing treatment of choice, and I encourage everyone to give it a go!

Looking forward to helping you evolve to a younger more confident, wrinkle-reduced you.
