*This treatment was given to me for free, and so I wrote this honest review.*
So this week I am reviewing a treatment I had, called Dermapen.
Never heard of it? Neither had I until this year. I had a little read about it, and was very surprised about what it does.
It’s a form of collagen induction therapy where there are micro-needles that go into the skin – this is so collagen produces – repairing scars, reduces hyper pigmentation, and renews tired skin. The Dermapen is moved over the skin in a vertical angle.
So the first thing the therapist does was clean my face and prep. She then started the procedure. As much good as I can say about the procedure, it does hurt. It’s needles at the end of the day, so its not overly pleasant. She went over all of my face, over my scars and enlarged pores, and even got rid of a couple of thread veins in my nose.
After the procedure, your skin is bright red and feels like a bit of a sunburn, but they put on a cooling mask and some retinol for you to cool the skin, and keep it hydrated, as it will start to peel in the next 24 hours as the old skin sheds. You can’t wear most makeup straight after or for 24 hours but mineral makeup is okay.
I found a few hours after that my skin started to glow with the oil coming out of my skin. After a week, I definitely noticed my skin had a definitely glow to it, and my pores and scars were looking reduced. This is only after one session, and you can have one every 4 to 6 weeks, and as many as you like, depending on the severity of your skin. A lot of acne sufferers have this procedure to help reduce scarring.
After 4 – 6 weeks of healing, my skin looks great. My makeup goes on better, I am less oily (you know this oily girls journey) and it’s almost like my skin has been given a reset button. Even the crease between my brows has reduced a little bit.
I definitely recommend this procedure to everybody, as it can fix so many issues, like rosacea, fine lines, uneven skin tone, enlarged pores, dull skin, and more!
I had this procedure done at Yuu Beauty, in Edinburgh but there are many branches of Naturalaser over the UK that do this as well! Look them up and get yourself booked in.
