SkinPen - Micro Needling
As we age and battle skin conditions, the natural architecture of our skin deteriotes, which leads to fine lines, wrinkles, large pores and uneven skin texture. Collagen induction therapy, also known as micro needling, is a great way to address these signs of aging at the cellular lev. Microneedling comfortably creates thousands of micro-injuries in the skin to trigger the body's natural wound healing process. This results in skin remodeling, including the formation of collagen and elastin, the two proteins predominantly responsible for the structure of the skin. The outcome is beautiful, youthful looking skin.
There are two kinds of exfoliation physical and chemical, physical exfoliation goes from the outside in and chemical exfoliation goes from the inside out on a cellular level removing dead skin, debris, and pore-clogging material away from the surface of the skin to reveal newer, beautiful skin underneath. Two acid options are available at Gem Spa Lactic acid and Glycolic acid. Glycolic acid is the stronger of the two, great for someone without sensitive skin and longer recovery time. Lactic is the more gentle of the two, great for someone with sensitive skin and faster recovery time. Both have endless benefits including diminishing fine lines and wrinkles, promoting natural collagen production it penetrates deeply into the skin to reform texture and dullness leaving the skin looking refreshed, bright and refined.
