Forget Laser and Chemical Peels
A new and easy to use home version of skin needling is now available and affordable and is more effective that laser or chemical peels.
Chemical and laser peels thin the skin as they burn the top layers to reveal fresh new skin underneath. The concept sounded good until doctors realized that over time and especially if performed on older patients, these procedures thinned out the skin which actually made aging skin look worse over time.
Skin needling helps to remove old skin cells and push any anti-aging product you are using deeper into the skin for even better penetration and absorption.
Who has the money to spend on cosmetic procedures? Now you can do something for yourself at home to help rejuvenate your skin and keep it looking its best. The procedure is called skin needling or micro-needling.
What Is It?
The small hand held device has 200 micropoints that are able to penetrate the pores of the top layer of the skin. These pores close again in an hour or so, however, during this time your body is able to maximize the absorption of the the anti-aging cream you applied, like copper peptides, to help stimulate the production of collagen and elastin.
The best part is the rejuvenation process continues for hours even days after each treatment!
Dr. Phil and his wife Robin featured this product on one of the episodes on Aging Gracefully. Robin states that this is her favorite anti-aging too.
How Does It work
You hold a small section of your skin taunt, then roll the device over that section. Most instructions recommend 4 times in all directions up, down, and side to side. Each time you change directions you should lift the device and reposition to another part of the skin, the way you would use a rolling pin. This is so that you don’t dull the needles.
The needles put little punctures into the upper dermis of the skin which cause a wound healing process to begin and the stimulation of new collage fibers and other skin cells, like elastin. In addition, it improves blood supply.
