What is Microneedling?
While microneedling may sound like a cruel and unusual punishment, adding this simple technique to your daily skin care routine can promote successful aging. Also called Collagen Induction Therapy, microneedling reduces wrinkles and acne scars by lightly puncturing the top layer of skin. So, exactly how does microneedling work?
By using a derma roller–a skin care tool that looks like a miniature paint roller covered in tiny metal spikes–you create minuscule punctures to your skin, allowing the anti-aging skin care product to penetrate your skin up to 90% greater. Moreover, the micro-injuries stimulate your body’s natural healing process, which boosts the production of collagen and elastin in aging skin.
You may be thinking, “Is microneedling painful?” TresViva’s DIY (do-it-yourself) at home Home Micro Needle Kit uses .25 mm roller needles that are virtually painless. We even offer .3 mm and a .5 mm derma rollers for extra stimulation.
The Science of Skin
With skin being your largest organ, it’s the first line of defense against extremes of temperature, damaging sunlight, and harmful chemicals. That’s why we tend to season with age: Our skin has been fighting the elements since we were born. On a more scientific level, we begin to see wrinkles, discoloration, and other types of skin damage, because of the loss of collagen and elastin.
Collagen is an insoluble protein found throughout the body and within connective tissue. Elastin, as you may gather from the name, allows the skin spring back when stretched. Studies show that we begin losing skin thickness as early as 21, and both collagen and elastin proteins begin to deplete as early as 30 years of age.
The Best Serum for Micro Needling
It’s no secret that TresViva’s Premium 2-Step Anti-Aging System is the best anti-aging skin care product on the market. So, why not kickstart your skin with facial-like results by using our Home Micro Needling Solution? This top-of-science microneedling solution contains powerful stem cell cytokines, which produces the necessary collagen and elastin growth factors. By applying growth factors through a collagen needle roller, the stem cells penetrate deep in the epidermis, providing faster, longer-lasting results.
Our serum helps repair damaged skin, it improves elastin and reduces wrinkles. In the same fashion, microneedling with TresViva’s Stem Cytokine Solution treats acne scars, eliminates dark circles and bags from under the eye, and it can even provide fuller lips. Best of all, we always guarantee that our products are FD & C dye-free, sulfate-free, paraben-free, and cruelty-free. Not only did we design the best anti-aging serum, our kit provides two roll-on applicators for maximum convenience and application. When you use this DIY at-home microneedling kit in tandem with the Premium 2-Step Anti-Aging System, you’re guaranteed to have younger, more vibrant skin.
How to Micro Needle
Once you’ve purchased one our bestselling derma rollers and our Home Micro Needling Solution, you’re ready to roll! Below are five easy steps that will leave your skin feeling rejuvenated.
- Prepare your skin by removing all of the dirt and oils with our Age Defying Sulfate Free Cleanser.
- Generously roll-on the Stem Cytokine Solution all over the face, around the eyes and mouth, as well as your neck.
- Begin using your derma roller one section at a time. Consider the forehead, the cheeks, and the lip/chin area to be three different sections.
- Working in one section, move your derma roller vertically, then horizontally, and then diagonally. Do each movement twice before moving in a different direction. Be sure to not press too hard and let the roller do the work.
- Finally, generously roll-on the Stem Cytokine Solution for a second application.
Repeat these steps once, or twice, a week for younger looking skin. For best results, use in conjunction with the Premium 2-Step Anti-Aging System. Clean your derma roller with rubbing alcohol after each use, in order to prevent infection.
Best At-Home Micro Needling Pen
The professionals at TresViva perform microneedling with more efficiency with a dermapen. Now you can be the professional at home with your very own Dr. Pen! This chargeable, cordless dermapen works in the same manner as the derma roller, but better! It repeatedly moves the needle bed vertically, increasing the absorption of the Micro Needle Stem Cell Solution, while reducing breaks in the skin. The Dr. Pen dermapen cartridge is designed for single-use, in order to prevent infection and cross-contamination. Don’t worry, replacement micro needle cartridges are just one click away. We at TresViva strongly recommend that you restrict your needle length to .25 mm when using the Dr. Pen dermapen. For safety reasons, leave the deeper puncturing to the professionals.
Let’s get to the point…at-home microneedling can drastically improve the results of your anti-aging routine. If you are serious about tackling wrinkles, check out the products we offer, or contact one of our professionals at TresVivia. You’ll love your perfect skin.
