In today’s society, where so much emphasis is placed on people’s appearance, many men and women are electing to undergo invasive cosmetic procedures in order to achieve younger, better looking skin.

Over time, as people age, their skin can become wrinkled or lined. This is primarily because as we age, the skin produces less and less elastin and collagen. Elastin and collagen are described as the building blocks of our skin, and are needed to keep the skin looking soft, supple, and smooth. Many cosmetic procedures claim to fix the look of sagging skin, without actually targeting the problem of inefficient collagen and elastin production. These cosmetic procedures are expensive, require extensive recovery time and can cause lasting damage to the skin and body, especially if not done properly.

Cosmetic Procedures

One of the most popular procedures done today to combat the signs of aging or sagging skin, is Botox. Although Botox is popular, there are many side effects to the procedure. Botox is actually a small dosage of a poisonous substance that, if injected intravenously, would be lethal. Botox is injected right into the skin, but not the veins, to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Even though Botox is not deadly when inserted in the skin, there is still a risk for the toxin to migrate and cause problems within the body. In addition to being potentially dangerous, Botox is also very expensive, and wears off over time, meaning multiple treatments will be needed. Botox can also cause discomfort, bleeding, bruising and other side effects, while often leaving the skin looking unnaturally taught and immobile.

Another one of the more popular options for cosmetic procedures is the chemical peel. Unfortunately because these peels use very harsh chemicals, they can sometimes cause further damage to the skin, have long recovery times, are very costly, and require patients to stay indoors for months after treatment.

Luckily, there are some alternatives to chemical peels and Botox, which are much safer, less invasive and less expensive. One of these alternatives is the very successful process of microneedling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT). This process is simple, does not carry the same risks and recovery time, and yet produces similar results to even the most intense chemical peels. Microneedling using a derma roller rejuvenates the skin as opposed to removing top layers of skin in the way that a chemical peel does. As it rejuvenates, microneedling increases the skin’s natural production of collagen and elastin.

The Derma Roller allows individuals to safely perform microneedling on their own skin, in the comfort of their own home, for a fraction of the cost of any cosmetic procedure, with absolutely no recovery time or expensive consultancy fees to pay. The dermaroller is fitted with tiny micro needles which are rolled over the skin without causing damage, bleeding, bruising or trauma. The mico needles, which are thinner than a human hair, trick the skin into believing it has suffered damage, which causes a great increase in the natural production of collagen and elastin around the “wound” in a way no other product can. This procedure is safe, simple, inexpensive, relatively painless and perhaps even more importantly, produces results that not even the more expensive and invasive cosmetic procedures can.

Chemical peels have long been a recognised and popular way of giving your skin a boost, making it look younger and reducing the appearance of fine lines. There are many different kinds of chemical peel, ranging from light, lunch hour treatments which can subtly improve the condition of your skin, to the deep phelon peels which can take weeks, even months to fully recover from – but can make your skin look much, much younger when you have recovered.

Are There Different Kinds of Chemical Peel?

There are many different kinds of acid used in skin chemical peels. AHA and BHA, the gentlest acids, stand for alpha hydroxy acid and beta hydroxy acid respectively. These are derived from fruit or sugar cane, or sour milk. BHAs disperse deeper into the pores, and are recognised as being slightly more effective than AHAs, which affect the surface more. TCA acids, the next most effective, are used for more serious complaints, such as light scarring, uneven pigmentation and deeper wrinkles. TCA has a proportionately longer recovery time, and requires use of moisturiser and sunscreen whilst the skin recovers, and also requires time off work to heal.

The most potent chemical peel is known as the phenol peel, is used for the deepest wrinkles and most serious complaints, and can take weeks to recover from. It will require constant use of high-factor sunscreen for months after. Because of its tendency to drastically lighten skin, phenol peels are not recommended for people with darker skin. Phenol peels are also known to completely remove freckles.

Before You Decide…

There are all manner of concerns to think of when debating whether to have a skin peel. The first is what kind of peel you want. For lighter peels, there is cost to consider. A lighter skin peel is unlikely to take care of anything but very minor skin complaints; anything more serious that light pigmentation issues and very fine wrinkles might take multiple treatments, and the costs can add up. Your money could be better spent on a range of equally effective and much less expensive treatments. If it is one of the more abrasive treatments you’re seeking, then the recovery time has to be taken into account. Can you afford to take up to three or even four weeks off work? Could you comfortably spend up to three months indoors, avoiding the sun?

Alternatives to Chemical Peels

Fortunately, there are other options. Microneedling is an effective way of rejuvenating your skin, and can be as effective even as some of the harsher chemical peels over time, without any of the risks, discomfort or downtime. Instead of removing the upper layers of skin, microneedling rejuvenates your skin by increasing the production of collagen and elastin within your skin’s cells.

Lack of collagen and elastin is evident in skin which looks aged, wrinkled or uneven. It’s collagen which keeps the skin looking youthful and healthy, but the skin produces less and less as time passes. The Scientia Derma Roller, a revolutionary microneedling device, turns back time by keeping the skin in constant supply of collagen, making it look younger and feel fresher.

Rolling the device’s tiny needles over your skin triggers the healing process, although the tiny needles are far too small to cause damage, bleeding or trauma. This healing process greatly increases the production of collagen, which the skin uses to improve its condition. Because you can use the Scientia Derma Roller regularly, you can keep your skin in constant supply of collagen and allow for constant, steady improvement.
