Choosing a Dermaroller Treatment for Your Skin Care Issues

Every day, we look at ourselves in the mirror, assessing the person looking back at us, that’s where a Dermaroller treatment can help. When we begin to see wrinkles or sun damage or other skin issues, we start losing confidence in our appearance. A large part of our psychological makeup is based on how we look and are perceived by others. Only when we look good do we really feel good about ourselves. Skin care is essential to reaching that goal.

The Dermaroller Treats Various Skin Care Issues

There are a great number of skin care issues that people suffer. The Dermaroller handles many of them, including the most common one. Dermatologists say about 95% of their patients seek a method to eradicate wrinkles from their face and body. Stretch marks from weight loss or child bearing are also fairly common. Scarring from acne or chicken pox as well as sun damage and hyper pigmentation are also frequent issues. Fortunately, the Dermaroller can treat each of those issues.

How the Dermaroller Procedure Works

The Dermaroller uses the process of microneedling to correct skin issues. Microneedling is a process in which clusters of needles are stamped in the skin to penetrate into a deeper layer of the skin called the dermis. It is in this layer that rejuvenation of the skin occurs. A Dermaroller has a barrel shaped head with numerous tiny needles that are rolled across the surface of the skin rather than stamped in.

The process of microneedling is also called collagen induction therapy as it stimulates the cells in the dermal layer to regenerate by replacing damaged cells with new ones and also encourages the production of collagen.

Comparing the Dermaroller to Other Treatments

Most other treatments that use cosmetic laser equipment for skin care issues like scars, wrinkles, and pitted skin require ablative methods. That means they cause damage to the skin’s surface in order to stimulate repairs. The Dermaroller is non-ablative, meaning it leaves the epidermis intact and undamaged. Where other methods come with significant risks and down time, the Dermaroller does not. It takes a little more time to see the full extent of the results, but works on all skin colors and textures where the other methods run into problems with that.

What Areas Can be Treated?

The Dermaroller comes in varying sizes and needles lengths. For the facial area, shorter needles and a smaller roller would be used. A larger barrel head with longer needles would be used for thicker skin and large areas. This handheld device can be used on most of the body.

What to Expect at Your Appointment

The first time you go to a clinic for a treatment, you will have standard medical forms to fill out. Your trained medical technician will likely apply a numbing cream to the area to be treated so the procedure will be more comfortable. It takes about 45 minutes for the numbing agent to take full effect. Depending on how large an area being treated, the procedure itself can take as much as an hour. You will likely notice some redness and possibly mild swelling afterwards, but it generally is gone by the next day. For the next 24 hours after the procedure, you just need to take extra cautions to avoid sun exposure, spray tanning, and anything else that might damage your skin. Be sure to ask your medical provider any questions you might have about the Dermaroller procedure so you can be confident about the treatment.

Say goodbye to the dark and let some hues in with the best nail polish colors for spring 2016! Polish ideas that make you look fab and glamorous? Yes, please!

Fashion is constantly changing and we often feel as though just as we’ve mastered a trend something else comes along and it’s on to the next big thing. Often times this becomes overwhelming because lets face it, unless your job is to always be #trending there’s just too much going on in your day to day to stay chic. 

How would you feel about a simple change that you can keep up with even with the most hectic of schedules? Of course, you’d love. Perhaps one of the simplest trends any gal can stay up to date with is nail polish colors and styles. With spring being so close it’s the perfect time to think about the next big thing for your nails. There’s always so many fun shades of nail polish to play with during the warmer months because you’ve finally tucked away those winter gloves and are not longer worried about losing your fingers to frostbite.

For those who are hunting for some ideas for nail polish colors for spring 2016, here are some exciting trends that you would definitely want to add to your collection! 

Floral patterns are super in for spring and your nails will thank you for them. They’re super classy and chic! The bright bold colors will add a pop of color to any spring wardrobe and in the most effortless way possible. This spring 2016 nail polish trend is for any fashionista that doesn’t have many hours to dedicate to keeping up with the latests. Don’t forget your toes because with the warmer spring days come out the peep toes and you want to make sure everything is on point.

A minty shade of green is the perfect way to brighten up your spring wardrobe! They will undoubtedly be the center of attention so make sure you have the perfect manicure before applying this hue. 

A creamy yellow shade is the perfect spring trend and it will go so perfectly with the sunny days of the season. You can opt for bright yellow or a more pastel hue, if you’re not feeling super adventurous. Either way you decide to go opt for two coats to really make that color pop!

Nail polish trends will never be complete without creme or beige hues, or at least according to me. You can find a lengthy list of beige colors but one option that you may want to try is a nude shade with brown undertones. Full opacity can be reached with two coats, thanks to the nice pigmentation of the formula. It is also a wonderful shade for nail stamping, it’s a thing, look it up!

You can’t go wrong with a royal blue this spring season, or any other season quite honesty. What I absolutely love about blue nail polish is that you can rock it with a dress of the same hue and not look tacky. There’s really no wrong way to wear blue this spring 2016 because whether it’s bright cerulean or classic cobalt you’ll slay.

Red is one of the nail polish colors that always stays #trending, whether it is a chilly winter, a hot summer, or a subdued spring. Red will never fail when adding charm to your overall look. You might want to look for a creamy shade that can spread quickly with no streaks. 

Here’s a quick addition! Aside from the top 10 best nail polish colors for spring 2016 mentioned above, you might also want to go for a sparkling look with glitter that can make you look, well, glamorous. It’s an absolutely perfect way to add dazzle to your nails and your evening.

Spring is the perfect time to add color to your nails that will help you stand out from the rest of the crowd. Remember, just like you, your nails make a first impression too so make it count! 

Enjoy the perfect spring 2016 nail polish hues I’ve picked for you <3.

Cute and Sporty on a Budget…

sneakers

Working out isn’t really my thing but with these sneakers I might just do a little something…a little. 

Sneakers this cute are definitely more than a workout staple though…and bonus, they’re good for the sole. Chic sneakers  won’t only cute-up your fitness fit but they can also be worn with skirts to give you the sporty look. Perhaps wearing them with a super pretty dress might be another way to go if you’re looking to look adorable and be utterly comfortable. Cute and comfy aren’t words often associated with one another when we’re talking about shoes but sneakers have changed the game. Whether you opt for a simple style or go for a more dazzling pair we all need a couple of pairs of these must haves…and don’t worry because they’ll never go out of style.

Whether you’re going on a lunch date or about to hit the gym for the latest workout craze work these sneakers into your day look and you’ll be ready to take on anything…even a little workout. 

I hope you all love the pairs I’ve picked out…of course you’ll find some soft rose pinks in the mix and one that’s super flossy! 😉
