Micro needling For Skin Rejuvenation

micro needling treatmentMicro needling treatment has been used in Europe for many years. Now, it has become very popular here in North America, for its efficacy on the skin, and it is here to stay. Microneedling uses tiny needles, ranging from 0.5 to 1.0 mm in length, to stimulate collagen. As the needles create microchannels in the skin, the body responds by healing itself, creating more collagen. This process occurs almost immediately. At SD Aesthetics we use DermaFrac, for its safety and predictable results.
Along with 180 micro needles, it combines other rejuvenating technologies to infuse powerful serums into the skin. Specific ingredients are selected to target your skin’s concerns:
Hyaluronic acid to hydrate
Kojic acid to lighten
Salicylic acid to clarify
Peptides to rejuvenate
Growth factors for healing and healthy cells
Vitamin C for antioxidant protection
As always treatments are customized, however, we suggest series of 6 to 10 , administered every 1 to 2 weeks, followed by a monthly or bimonthy maintenance. Treatments should not be performed until 7 days after having had Botox, fillers, waxing, electrolysis, or high frequency. Unlike other resurfacing skin treatments, microneedling is one of my favorites because there is no removal of the top layer of the skin, meaning there is no downtime post treatment.

Glowing Skin Through Consumption Of Right Foods

Antioxidants in your diet is probably one of the best ways to get glowing skin, because your diet can reflect on your skin. Even though there are no miracle foods to make get glowing skin, the right nutrients, along with the right skin products, can help your skin protect itself, and look its best. The benefits of antioxidants for healthy,glowing skin from the inside out often come up in discussions. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals, which damage cell structure, giving way to aging skin and other skin conditions. Even though cell damage is inevitable, antioxidants can slow down this process. Any chemicals that can interfere with free radical damage, has antioxidant properties.  Antioxidants work wonders in skin products to have your skin glowing, but most importantly, they are also found in foods, therefore, a diet for glowing skin should contain an array of antioxidants.
• Fatty acids: These fats are important to keep the skin barrier strong and hydrated. Find them in:
Salmon, mackerel, avocados, and walnuts.
• Vitamin E: Especially when combined with vitamin C, seems to be more effective. Vitamin E is also an antioxidant to aid in oxidative damage. Find vitamin E in:
Almonds, kale, spinach, wheat germ oil, and broccoli.
• Vitamin C: Another antioxidant, and necessary for collagen production. Find it in:
Oranges, peppers, strawberries, and grapefruit.
• Beta carotene: Important for skin texture, and sun protection. The best sources to find beta carotene, are in fruits and vegetables, especially those with a bright pigment. Some include:
Sweet potatoes, carrots, squash, and tomatoes.
Of course don’t forget vitamin A, a major antioxidant, which can help neutralize environmental damage caused by free radicals.
Remember, free radicals basically cause damage to cells. Catechins, found in green tea have also become very popular throughout the last few years. Not only may it prevent some chronic diseases, but skin aging as well. This is specially true in black tea.
