Last month when I went to Kate Somerville clinic for my facial, Lori Friedman, my aesthetician and a nurse practitioner, suggested trying two noninvasive procedures which she explained would improve my complexion while resurfacing my collagen. Willing to try just about anything to look my best, I decided to go for it.
We started with a 15-minute preparation which included cleansing, exfoliation and extractions, before getting to the Laser Genesis. For people who are not familiar with it, Laser Genesis is a non-invasive laser treatment that treats fine lines, wrinkles, scars, large pores and active acne. This heat-based laser stimulates the body's natural healing processes to boost collagen growth resulting in a more youthful skin tone and texture. The result is a definitive glow. It is recommended to do a series of 3 to 6 sessions 1 or 2 weeks apart. Once this treatment was completed we went on to the next step: The Micro Needling.
As we age, our collagen diminishes so anything you can do to boost it is a plus; therefore Micro Needling is one sure solution. Before starting the procedure, the nurse uses numbing cream all over your face and neck which will alleviate any discomfort when she starts the treatment. But first, let me explain about Micro Needling. With the aid of a specific device Anchor known as a derma roller equipped with fine short needles ranging from 0.5 to 2.5 millimeters, your skin receives microscopic punctures for the purposes of rejuvenation. It stimulates collagen, brightens your complexion, and tightens the pores while improving scarring texture. To get greater results, this procedure should be done once a month for a minimum of 3 sessions. The results are undeniable.
I highly recommend a visit with Lori at the Kate Somerville clinic.
