My name is Bess. I'm a Beautician at a day spa and I wanted to let you know that collagen induction therapy is an extremely valuable anti-aging skin care strategy.
Many of our clients are curious to know if derma rollers, also referred to as micro skin needling, is a worthwhile procedure for facial rejuvenation.
But to be perfectly honest, I have learned that there aren't too many people who are even aware of what skin needling is, never mind wonder if it is a worthwhile treatment for aging skin concerns!
Just for a little background information, I'm a beautician and have worked in an upscale day spa for well over two decades.
spa offers skin treatment options for everything
ranging from acne scarring and cellulite to facial rejuvenation and
The collagen induction therapy or more commonly known as medical skin needling, is by far becoming one of our most popular treatments because it treats so many different skin concerns.
This spa procedure, also referred to as micro skin needling, is one that you can do all by yourself right at home!
Just so you know, collagen induction therapy aka micro skin needling is a medical cosmetic procedure approved by the FDA.
major difference between a professional medical collagen induction
therapy treatment and the DIY derma rollers is the length of the needles.
Important Note: Home skin needling devices should not have needles any longer than 1.5mm in length.
Skin needling is a great procedure that produces remarkable results for the removal or treatment of . . .
Collagen induction therapy works on the simple principle of stimulating collagen and elastin production by forcing the dermis into a wound healing response to the trauma induced by the micro punctures of the skin needling procedure.
Results are NOT instantaneous!
It will take upwards of several months for the results to become fully apparent because it takes some time for the body to show the effects of the new collagen that is generated as a result of this procedure.
For less that the cost of one professional medical skin needling treatment, you can purchase your own derma roller and do-it-yourself!
Although I do appreciate the fact that it is a wonderfully decadent treat to go to the spa to be pampered, I hear from my clients all the time that they wish they had the budget to come every week so they will see the results they seek much sooner.
Just like myself, I know that not everyone has an endless supply of disposable income; especially in this difficult economy.
And when money gets a bit tight, what goes out the window first?
Your monthly spa pampering sessions. . .
So, just recently I have convinced the owner of the spa I work for to offer a variety of DIY home spa options to our clients. You know, the spa treatments that actually give results and are worthwhile to take the time to do them yourself.
We now have a complete line of facial masks, peels and such along with a selection of home microdermabrasion systems, and home facial lasers for not only aging skin symptoms but for acne and hair removal.
And it's so darn easy!
We've just added Derma Rollers, the micro-skin needling devise to our growing DIY home spa treatment options at our spa. Now our clients can use the collagen induction therapy technique on themselves at home.
As you can probably imagine, this is blossoming into wildly popular option at our spa. So much so that we have started to provide hands-on lessons in DIY Home Spa Treatments!
I am so pleased that women who are concerned about their looks and skin concerns have so many options to maintain the treatments that they find effective right at home at a huge savings.
Do you know. . .
That for far less than the cost of a professional micro skin needling treatment, you can now purchase your own Derma Facial Roller and DIY?
The same is true for home microdermabrasion, DIY lasers and many other beneficial spa treatments.
While you might think that our spa bookings would decrease as a result of the introduction of DIY options, the opposite is true. In this highly competitive industry, we are finding that people are now actively seeking out our particular spa!
Skin needling dramatically improves the effectiveness of skin care treatments so select products with ingredients that will help with the renewal process like Vitamin A, C, Matrixyl, and so on. (This site is jammed packed with helpful information on effective anti-aging ingredients so you can't go wrong!)
I hope everyone finds this information is helpful. I have enjoyed this website for the past several years and highly recommend it to my clients all the time.
I thought I'd finally take a minute and make a contribution that would benefit everyone who is interested in adding a few, yet very beneficial DIY spa treatments to their anti-aging skin care regime.
P.S. I'm sending along the link to the Rachael Ray show which features Derma Rollers that we refer clients who have questions about collagen induction therapy.
Thank you so much Bess for such an excellent, comprehensive review on derma rollers and for your kind words about the website.
Here's is the video Bess sent along on the Rachel Ray featuring the art of skin needling on her "Human Lab" series to test facial rejuvenation treatments.
