Microneedling or micro-needling is a process that involves using needles to puncture hundreds of tiny holes in the skin (yes, seriously). It may seem like the newest trend in beauty skincare, but it’s actually been around and evolving for over 50 years! Fans of the microneedle claim it treats everything from wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and dull skin to issues such as scars, stretch marks, and cellulite – although results are still dubious on that last one, so don’t get your hopes up. However, in a 2009 study, 37 patients underwent microneedling procedures to treat atrophic facial scars (those sunken scars that result from acne, chicken pox, etc.). NCBI After several professional treatments, over 80% of the

With this winter weather almost upon us,  I’m sure the last thing you want to read about is a skincare trend that involves freezing temperatures!

If you have sensitive skin, you know how frustrating it can be. As much as you want to try new products, it’s not always safe to do so. “What if I break out?” is a question that’s often asked. You may have heard the term “hypoallergenic skincare” being thrown around. You may figure that these products are a safe middle ground. But not so fast. There’s more to this than meets the eye, which I’ll talk about in a bit. You’re not alone! Many people attribute this claim to reasons ranging from skin type to dermatological disorders for their declaration of sensitivity in the skin.

Aging and Wrinkles Crow’s feet, laugh lines, creases, fine lines. Whatever you call them, we all know them as wrinkles. These lovely lines are a natural part of the aging process. As we get older, our skin loses structure (AKA collagen) and its ability to bounce back (elastin), causing lines to form and skin to sag. Aside from good ol’ natural aging, there are some other elements that can cause wrinkles to form. Since we can’t stop the hands of time, let’s take a look at some of the other fine line factors and what you can do to keep skin smooth and youthful! Causes of Wrinkles Sun Exposure The free radicals from UVA radiation break down skin’s collagen and elastin and cause hyperpigmentation
