Its that time again for some ‘selfcare’ and nothing gets me more excited then skincare, especially using a method that can yield professional results.
Microneedling facials have been around for some time and became popularized by none other, Kim Kardashian.
In an episode of KUWK, the cameras followed Kim to her facial appointment for her first treatment for microneedling with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma). This procedure is also dubbed the ‘vampire’ facial because it involves drawing blood from the patient and placing it on the face.
So what exactly is microneedling and what are the benefits?
Microneedling is the insertion of very fine short needles into the skin for the purposes of rejuvenation.
The benefits include the following:
- Reduces Wrinkles and Fine Lines. The loss of elastin and collagen cause thinning, sagging skin, and facial wrinkles. …
- Improves Scars. Micro-needling is proven to diminish the look of surgery and acne scars. …
- Reduces Appearance of Stretch Marks. …
- Prevents Signs of Aging.
I’ve had this facial twice before and the experience was pleasant especially the end results. My skin was luminous, pores pretty much gone and texture improved tremendously.
Now a newer version of this treatment is becoming more popular and known to be the facial treatment of 2020.
In comes the ‘Hydra Needle Facial’, ‘Aqual Gold Microneedle’ treatment or ‘Derma Stamp’ treatment.
This treatment is a non-invasive facial using a ‘derma stamp’, an instrument that works just like a derma roller—it pierces the upper layers of your skin to encourage tissue formation, collagen production, and increase blood supply.
These days, most of us have had to postpone our appointments with an esthetician due to the covid-19 crisis forcing most of us having to do our own beauty treatments in the comfort of our own home.
If you’re like me, I can be pretty anxious and impatient. I decided to do some research and watch a few videos and decided to do the Derma Stamp facial at home. Let me tell you, I’m so glad I did!
I purchased a derma stamp instrument off of Amazon. This little device by Nurysh delivers similar results at a much more affordable price right in the comfort of your own home.
The Nurysh ‘Deep & Uniq’ treatment will help your skin feel smoother and appear more vibrant, starting with the first use.
It’s very easy to use and comes in a protective packaging kit along with their hyaluronic acid + vitamin-c serum.
This is how to safely and simply use it at home:
Step 1: Open package and steralize your derma stamp tool with rubbing alcohol.
Step 2: Fill the tiny bottle with 3/4 of hyaluronic acid + vitamin c serum
Step 3: Close the bottle with the derma stamp lid.
Step 4: Shake for 30 seconds
Step 5: Gently begin to press the derma stamp against your face doing small sections at a time.
Voila! You just did your first at home microneedle treatment.
This can be done safely one to two times a week.
