As we age we become more and more conscious of you skin and how it looks. Years ago I started to notice skin ageing on others and determined not to look older than I needed to and where possible try to defy the ageing process and look younger than my years I began with the basics of good skin care. What are these? They are pretty simple, I wear a factor 50 every single day 365 days of the year. I put it on automatically in the morning whether I am planning on going out or not so I am prepared. I also drink as much water as I can get in me daily which isn’t always easy but I do try. Now these are the very basic in maintaining good skin. In addition a healthy diet can help keep skin looking great.
That’s the basics covered. You may have noticed I have been carrying out trials of various beauty products and of course sharing the results with you. I only include products that work on my blog and the latest that I have been experimenting with is the award winning skin renewal treatment from Swiss Clinic. Swiss Clinic specialise in targeted and innovative beauty treatments of premium quality but at an affordable price. These are clinically tested to show their efficacy and give long lasting results.
The Skin Renewal Treatment reduces the appearance of scarring, hyperpigmentation and also improves the structure of the skin.
The treatment requires the use of a skin roller and rejuvenating serum and there is a sanitising available to clean the roller. The roller itself is a microneedling device with 540 silver-plated, Japanese surgical steel microneedles specifically designed for at-home treatment. I am predicting a few of you will be thinking, “what??? No way. I’m not trying that!” (yes I do read minds on occasion). But fear not it doesn’t hurt!!!! I used the 0.2mm roller (length of the needles) but there is a 0.5mm option available – can’t say if that one hurts or not. You can buy these individually roller £42, serum £59 if you like or a pack with both which is selling for £79 at the moment. The sanitising spray comes in packs of 3 for £22.
What It Does
By using the roller you open up thousands of tiny micro-channels in the skin which in turn simulates damage and the skin’s natural healing process; production of collagen and elastin, increased blood circulation and the creation of new healthy skin cells. The micro-channels allow a more significant absorption of the skin care products that you apply hence the serum is applied straight after and then your preferred moisturiser approximately an hour later should you feel you need it. The serum absorption here is up to 300% more compared to use on untreated skin.
The serum is not only soothing but also moisturising. The active ingredient beta-glucan stimulates the skin’s natural collagen formation resulting in wrinkles looking less defined.
The combination of the skin damage and serum application helps minimise fine lines, reduce the size of pores, fade pigmentation and reduce the appearance of scarring and stretch marks.
How To Use The Treatment At Home
After using the roller you apply the rejuvenating serum and then your own moisturiser. It’s best to use this at night as you may experience some tingling or a slight redness. The skin needs time to heal in between uses so a 5-day treatment cycle is recommended – 5 days of rolling, then 5 days of rest to allow the skin to recover and renew. It is advised that the serum is also used on days that the roller isn’t too as it will give better long-term results. With continuous treatment the skin’s natural ability to heal is stimulated and new, healthy skin cells are produced which means that scars will fade and disappear. This is specific for scars and hyperpigmentation but you will also notice an improvement in the appearance of the skin as it will look brighter and more even in colour and also plumper and firmer.
Don’t forget after use to use the Sanitising Spray to make sure your roller stays clean.
What Did I Think
I had tried acupuncture during pregnancy for morning sickness which was a traumatic experience so I was was a bit apprehensive at first. Once I started using this I quickly realised there wasn’t anything to worry about as it didn’t really cause much discomfort just a tingling after use.
It doesn’t take up much time to do, you only need to use the roller for 2-4 minutes each time which is great.
This is really easy to use and the fact that the serum is in a pump bottle makes the whole process faster and simpler.
The serum can be stored in the fridge so it’s really nice an refreshing on application.
I found the best time to use this was at night and notice it was quite relaxing using the roller on my face. It gives you a light massage which is always a good thing.
The treatment isn’t limited to use on the face, you can also use it on the neck, chest, arms and backs of the hands or anywhere else you feel you may need it.
The treatment seemed to work well for me. I noticed my skin was firmer, felt smoother and had a much better tone then when I started using it. My skin looked healthy! I will add there was a considerable gap between this and the previous beauty product trial to undo any positive affects from the previous trial to allow a good assessment of this one.
All the Swiss Clinic Treatments are cruelty free and vegan!!!!!
