We are our own worst critic. Those forehead lines are the first thing we notice looking in the mirror and our selfies aren’t the same without that filter – shhh I won’t tell!
Collagen – we all know we want more of it, but what is it? Collagen is a natural filler we produce consistently up until our 30’s. Once fresh collagen that was flexible is now starting to stiffen. Those facial expressions and muscle movements are now shifting that hardened collagen with every eyebrow raise.
Botox? Maybe. I know what you are thinking, but it really can solve part of the equation! Muscle movements. With less movement, that stiffened collagen will not be shifted – BOOM! Wrinkles Gone! But this is only half of the problem. The true culprit? DUN DUN DUN…… COLLAGEN BREAKDOWN!
Picture a damp sheet straight out of the washing machine. In your 20’s the sheet is full of collagen; it is soft, plyable, and forgiving. This sheet can be hung on a clothes line allowing wrinkles to easily fall out. Once you hit your 30’s the sheet becomes stiff, the creases are beginning to set, some of the wrinkles staying no matter how long it hangs.
The most important factor to address is the STIMULATION OF COLLAGEN. Derma needling or Derma rolling is a new technique that is proven to increase the production of collagen and elastin. This procedure uses a gauged roller across the skin as a form of controlled damage. When the epidermis is damaged, the body automatically produces new collagen and elastin fibers. Working from the inside out, skin builds new natural filler in just a few sessions.
There are many companies who produce home care rollers; don’t be mistaken, this isn’t the same procedure. Home care rollers are .5 in gauge, while professional rollers range from 1.0 to 3.0. Using sterile technique the channels are made to the dermis, where the collagen and elastin is being produced. Home care rollers are a great maintance tool to use in between professional sessions, furthering the results. With a visible difference in the texture as well as fine lines, derma needling is an easy painless procedure with zero down time that will make you proud to go filter free!
