A Facial That Wounds Your Skin!

I recently saw a Facebook post that asked you to name a scary movie that traumatized you as a child.  I answered Jaws! To this day I still can’t go in the ocean and enjoy myself. Every second I’m in the water; I’m filled with irrational fear of being eaten by a shark.

Had that Facebook post asked me for the name of a movie that traumatized me as an adult, my answer would be “He’s Almost 50, the story of Barry Eichner.”  Seriously, looking at my skin and wondering where those firm, plump cheeks went is enough to help me out run, any Friday the 13th or Nightmare On Elm Street Villain.  That’s why I love what I do – I get to try all of the cutting edge treatments and products!

Microneedling + Microchanneling

One treatment that I’m very excited about is Microchanneling also called Microneedling.  This treatment is a form of Collagen Induction Therapy using pen link device with a cluster of mini needles on the tip to cause tiny wounds to the skin.  After the wound, as the skin begins to heal, your body is triggered to produce more collagen which in turn helps to tone and tighten the skin.

The treatment is very versatile based on how deep the needles are pushed into the skin. Depending on state laws, estheticians in a day spa can perform a superficial version of the treatment.  However, physicians can provide a deeper treatment, which can bring about more profound changes faster.  Deeper versions of the treatment generally require some sort of numbing agent be applied to the skin before it begins.  In both settings, a serum that can be infused usually accompanies the treatment into the skin. The serums are usually designed to bring about certain effects to the skin.

Mesotherapy with MesoPen

I was so excited to meet Skin Cosmetics Pro in Chicago!  They gave me their version of Microneedling/Microchanneling, which they call “Mesotherapy” using their MesoPen.  Skin Cosmetics Pro says, “ Mesotherapy is a very effective clinically proven treatment method that connects between cosmetics and medicine.  This method is designed to introduce active ingredients directly into the skin’s productive layer in order to help the skin rehabilitate itself, provide it with essential components, keep it young and healthy, and inhibit early skin aging.

Using a small-needles operating device, the skin can be stimulated to produce fibroblast fibers such as collagen and elastin, which are responsible for the skin’s strength and elasticity.”

When a Mesotherapy treatment is performed, the esthetician or physician can enhance the treatment by adding specialized product into the skin.  Skin Cosmetics Pro offers an assortment of ampules that are designed to treat 4 different skin types.

Medical micro-needling is rapidly gaining popularity to improve the appearance of wrinkles, scars, stretch marks, hyper pigmentation, and improve overall skin tone and texture. Compared to chemical peels, dermabrasion and laser treatments, micro-needling causes substantially less tissue damage with minimal down time

I loved the treatment by Skin Cosmetics Pro; it was 2 passes using the MesoPen and then followed by a series of masks that left my skin feeling amazing.  Not only was my skin hydrated and glowing from the masks it felt tighter, which I was told was a result of the Microchanneling. If you’re looking for an anti-aging treatment that will help firm and tighten, definitely look into Microchanneling!  You’re skin will thank you!
