Gwyneth Paltrow. Naomi Watts. Jennifer Aniston. Angelina Jolie. Just a few of the Hollywood heroines reported to be fan-girls of microneedling facials. It seems today’s stars are balking at the idea of setting foot on the slippery slope that led the likes of Joan Rivers to surgery slavery. They’re all about maintaining glowing, healthy skin naturally – from the inside out.
So what is this microneedling treatment they’re having, and how does it actually work? Let’s put your mind at ease for starters: it’s not as prickly as it sounds.
First of all, a nourishing or rejuvenating serum is applied to your skin, depending upon what it most needs. Then, the therapist uses the pen-like handset of the Meta Therapy machine to make little overlapping circular movements over the skin.
But what about the scary-sounding needles? Well, in a nutshell, they’re just a little cluster of eighteen microneedles in a disposable cartridge that’s fitted to the handset. They make the tiniest half-a-millimetre punctures in the skin’s surface, which allow the serum to sink in and nourish the skin more deeply. Those same invisible-to-the-naked-eye perforations make your body’s repair system sit up and take note, triggering the healing process and producing new collagen and elastin, which it rushes to the surface of your skin to heal the little holes.
As we age, collagen and elastin production in our bodies starts to decline, causing our skin to lose that lovely youthful bounce it once had. But needling stimulates the production of these strength- and elasticity-giving proteins to naturally rejuvenate your skin.
So if you’re feeling like your face, neck and décolletage could use a little anti-gravity assistance but you really don’t like the idea of going under the knife, our microneedling treatment – Dermatude Meta Therapy – could very well be your new best friend. It gets to work on smoothing out the texture of your skin and reducing acne scars and sunspots in just under an hour per treatment.
Of course, it’s even more effective if you start feeding your skin from the inside out too. Match Dermatude with dietary and sleep support and you’ll see real improvements in your complexion. Collagen and elastin-supporting foods include eggs, beans, seeds and avocados… so don’t forget to put them on your shopping list.
