A dewy, glowing skin is what we all want, clear and smooth, but is it really achievable if you have existing lines, wrinkles or sun damage?
A secret ingredient in successful skin care is retinol, a form of Vitamin A that works by encouraging skin renewal and increasing collagen production. Originally used in the 1970s as a treatment for acne, it is now a standard ingredient in the arsenal of skin care therapists.
Used by young and old, retinoids treat and prevent fine lines, sun damaged skin and post–inflammatory hyperpigmentation, those dark marks or discoloured spots left behind after a pimple heals. It also fades age spots and softens dry or rough patches of skin.
One of Professional Skin Care Lab’s favourite treatments is known as the Polka dot Treatment: We use Microneedling combined with the Biomedical Emporium Retinol Serum– a process designed to increase cellular rejuvenation and boost collagen production. This is ideal for hyperpigmentation, acne-prone skin and advanced anti-aging skin requirements. Results from this procedure are incredible and much quicker than using topical applications of retinol in creams or serums alone.
Using a Microneedling device, the skin is punctured with needles to a pre-determined depth, which stimulates the skin’s innate healing system. This is known as a ‘controlled skin injury’, and the body responds by sending collagen and elastin to heal the area, making it plumper, firmer and smoother. Needling with The Gold Standard Retinol serum into the skin at the same time yields even better results, as it allows for cellular rejuvenation like no other!
This treatment takes years off the skin and reveals healthy, glowing smooth skin which is visible after one session.
