‘Skin boosting treatment giving great results’
As we age slathering up with skincare can only help us so much. Have you ever looked into the mirror after cleansing and moisturising your face, and just wanted more? Like me, have you ever wanted to turn back the hands of time… Or at least stop them ticking? Queue Dermarolling. As a technique, it’s been around for decades, but in its new refined form (combined with powerful serums) it’s bang on trend, widely available and efficacious.
Dermarolling or Microneedling is best left to the professionals so I decided to drop into the LAZEO Clinic and have a testament. My therapist Rachna passed a roller over my face in order to create thousands of microscopic channels in my skin, through which a powerful serum could enter. This cocktail of vitamins (who doesn’t love a cocktail?) tops the skin with much needed nutrients in order to create the glow that withers with age.
I expected the treatment to be a little painful as it involved damaging the skin in order to activate the body’s need to heal and form new tissue, and it’s no news to us that no pain, means no gain. However, in my case the treatment was ticklish and I found it hard to keep my composure. The twenty-minute treatment left my skin feeling relaxed and hydrated, which is a major plus when you live in the Big Smoke. Although, because I was a little red faced I decided to take a cab home. The next day any high colour had faded and there was no soreness. That said all skin regenerates differently so do brace yourself for sensitivity, and remember to keep your skincare regime simple.
If you like natural treatments with visible results then consider this one. I’ve sloughed off my winter skin and am reaping the rewards with a fresher, newer face… Will you join me?
