Ageing is a fact of life – and so are the signs that come along with it.
One of the most prominent signs of ageing is the appearance of wrinkles on the face, the neck, the hands and other areas of the body. Wrinkles can also be caused by a number of other factors. Genetics play an important role, and so does lifestyle – if you’re a smoker, you’re likely to see wrinkles much earlier than a non-smoker would. Rapid weight loss, sun exposure and hormones can also dictate how soon you’ll get wrinkles, where they’ll appear, and how they’ll progress.
While wrinkles are totally harmless, they can cause many people to lose their confidence and seek to minimise them as much as they can. Luckily, for those who want to address their wrinkles and achieve a tighter, more youthful-looking face, there is a solution available.
Dermapen for wrinkles
The Dermapen is a highly effective new treatment which can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in just a few sessions.
So how does it work? It’s pretty simple. The Dermapen is a small device with tiny needles at one end. When these needles are gently run over the skin, they create minuscule wounds, which the body must then repair. In repairing these harmless cuts, the body produces more collagen and elastin, two vital proteins that are responsible for the skin’s plumpness and elasticity.
If having your face covered in hundreds of tiny cuts sounds painful, rest assured that it’s not – most clients note some level of discomfort but it’s entirely manageable. In fact, it’s one of the only anti-wrinkle treatments that you can have on your lunch hour, before returning to work! You might notice some redness, but you’ll be prescribed a Dermapen-approved topical cream to soothe the skin and prevent swelling.
The treatment is completely suitable for all skin types – even if you have sensitive skin. It can also be used anywhere on the body, which means you can target areas like the neck and hands, which show the signs of ageing quite early.
You’ll likely notice some improvement after the first couple of treatments, but the best effects are achieved after a course lasting several months. Wrinkles will be noticeably diminished, and you’ll see that your skin looks plumper and younger all-round – perfect for those seeing the first signs of ageing.
