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.

Treat Cellulite At Home – The Best Home Remedies to Reduce Cellulite

Cellulite is the term used to describe the dimpling of the skin when pockets of fat become trapped underneath. Some believe that it only develops in men and women who are very overweight, but the simple truth is that cellulite can affect people who are generally thin as well. Having cellulite can be very embarrassing for people who often go to the beach or those who like to tan or wear bathing suits outdoors. Along with the embarrassment comes a feeling of insecurity, so the best thing to do if you are feeling down due to a cellulite problem is to try and find the best possible way to treat it and rid yourself of the problem.

What are the best ways to treat cellulite?

What are the best ways to treat cellulite? Well, for starters the best way to begin working on eliminating your cellulite problem is to make sure that you are eating healthy foods and getting plenty of exercise. While this may or may not cure your current troubles, it will help to keep future problems from arising. Drinking plenty of water and ridding yourself of bad habits such as smoking and drinking a lot of coffee can also help prevent the forming of cellulite. These are good ideas to get you started, but some people have jobs that call for their bodies to be in great shape while others simply don’t have the time or patience to try and rid themselves of the problem over time.

Lucky for them, there are many ways to treat cellulite in a quicker fashion. Many of these ways include some form of improving circulation in the problem areas. Different methods of massage, such as dry brushing, hydro massaging, and micro massaging are ways to help circulation and decrease the buildup of toxins in fat cells that cause cellulite. Steam baths and saunas open up pores and allow the decrease of toxins as well, which in return will help both prevent cellulite and improve the appearance of any cellulite you may already have. Perhaps the quickest way to deal with cellulite is liposuction, which involves the use of a tool which removes the fat cells once it is placed under the skin. Just like anything else, sometimes the quickest way may not always be the best though, as there are side effects for this cellulite treatment such as swelling and bruising that can come with liposuction.

One of the best tools on the market for treating cellulite at home is the Scientia Derma Roller, a hand held tool that opens pores without damaging the top layer of skin by using surgical steel micro-needles as fine as human hair. You simply roll it across the affected area once or twice a week (see our Derma Roller instructions video).   A Scientia Derma Roller can be used on all types of skin and any part of the body that is affected. However you decide to go about it, the sooner you rid yourself of a cellulite problem the better you will look and feel.

When choosing your DermaRoller, what needle size is best for you?

The Scientia Derma Roller is available in a choice of different needle sizes, so you should choose the needle size which best suits the condition or body part you are trying to treat.

Derma Roller Needle sizes for home use include 0.5mm, 1mm (1.0mm), 1.5mm and for professional use, we have 2mm (2.0mm) and 2.5mm rollers.  We also have 3 line rollers (made narrow to reach harder to treat areas like around the nose) in 1.0mm and 1.5mm sizes.

So what needle size is best for me?

Which needle size for stretch marks?

We recommend 1.0mm for light stretch marks and 1.5mm for deep stretch marks, you would need to decide which would best suit your needs.

The correct needle size for acne scars or other facial scars?

We recommend 0.5mm for light acne scarring, mild chicken pox scars or ice pick scars, or simply regular anti ageing treatments.  A 1.0mm roller is more suitable for deep acne scarring, surgery scars, ice pick or chicken pox scars, and 1.5mm Derma Rollers are for very deep scarring.   A Derma Roller 1.5mm is the maximum we would recommend for use on the face (unless as part of a professional treatment), but your body is less sensitive to treatment,  so you should decide which would best suit your needs.

You may also wish to choose the 3 line roller as it is better suited to use on certain parts of your face (such as around the nose), but it is not always necessary as our regular roller may suit you.

What size of DermaRoller for hair loss?

For thinning hair or greying hair, the 0.5mm Derma Roller is ideal, with 1mm rollers more suitable for more extensive hair loss.

What about for Cellulite?

The best needle size for cellulite is 1mm or 1.5mm depending on how severe the case is.

Is the right Derma Roller needle length the only factor?

No.  We also recommend the use of our vitamin rich treatment cream and Scientia Nutrition MultiVitamins as they have all the ingredients needed to support the use of the Scientia Derma Roller, and we find it can speed up results by giving your skin the building blocks it needs to generate new collagen and elastin –  the materials which give your skin its elasticity and smooth texture.

What about sterilizing your Derma Roller?

To sterilize your Derma Roller, we recommend the same product used to sterilize baby’s bottles (sterilisation liquid or sterilising fluid) available from your local pharmacy or supermarket.

If you have any further questions about the Scientia Derma Roller, please feel free to browse our frequently asked questions page.  For information on how to use the roller, visit our Derma Roller instructions page.  We also have a before and after pictures page, along with a Derma Roller reviews page where you can read all the latest customer feedback.  Finally, our disclaimer also lists when the use of a Derma Roller is and isn’t appropriate.

CIT or Collagen Induction Therapy is a process whereby the skin is treated to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin.  In case you didn’t know, the reason your body develops scars, stretch marks and wrinkles is a lack of collagen, so if you are able to stimulate the production of more collagen, you can restore and rejuvenate tired or damaged skin.

The most common form of CIT is skin needling, or mico needling, which can be carried out with a Scientia Derma Roller.  If you haven’t seen the amazing results you can get from a CIT roller, you should visit our Scientia Derma Roller before and after pictures page.  You can also see CIT roller reviews on our reviews page.

Even the stars of Hollywood are using cosmetic microneedling to give their skin a smooth and youthful glow.  Probably the most famous celebrities reported to have CIT Roller treatment are Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.
