14 Jan Collagen Induction Therapy

Collagen Induction Therapy. Have you heard of this before? If you think about the science behind the technology, it actually makes sense! Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT is a way for your skin to produce collagen on its own naturally. So like, when you have an injury to the skin, your skin naturally produces a layer of new skin to first cover the wound, and then once that sheds away, your fresh new layer of skin has regenerated.

 

I tried microneedling by using the Dermapen with Tasneem at the Brow Boutique, and started steady treatment sessions about a year ago. The process starts by applying numbing cream on the surface of the skin where you are doing the treatment. In my case, it was my face. We waited about 20 minutes until it ‘kicked’ in. Then she geared up in gloves and started up her device. It is a fast little pen that has about 20 tiny little pins that pricks the skin like a hundred times a minute. All I felt was her pen gliding along the surface of my skin. She takes short gentle strokes, first in one direction, then in another, as she covers all sections of my face. The forehead, cheeks, cheekbones, laughlines, upperlip, nose, chin, neck, and décolleté.   The whole process takes about 30 minutes. As soon as I’m done, I can already feel my face getting tight. Within the next few days, my skin will begin to peel, and after that, the skin feels brand new and rejuvenated! Luckily, I have no acne scars, but I do have a childhood chicken pox scar, and I have do have oily skin which makes my pores appear larger. I am also in my 40’s so this helps with anti-aging and reduces the appearance of wrinkles as well. I have repeated the treatment with Tasneem about every 8 weeks or so. I say or so, because we are both very busy women and lead very busy lives, so whenever we remember, we try to get it in. But this is basically the most invasive procedure that I do to my skin. Nothing else. I use no major skincare product lines, basically stick to cleansing with natural skin care products such as black soap and I moisturize with coconut oil. Microneedling is the most natural way that I can think of for my skin to help turn itself over. I’m a believer, and you should definitely give it a try. There really is no risk, and there is nothing to lose, except the scars, fine lines, and wrinkles on your face!

Microneedling has drastically reduced my acne scars and pigmentation.  The concept makes sense…it induces collagen growth and thats exactly what it did.  I grew new skin under the scars and the discoloration and everything turned over faster than it would normally have.  After 3 treatments, the pigmentation was gone.  I’m coming back for more.  Thanks Tasneem!

19 Sep Repair sun-damaged skin and gear up for Fall with the Brow Boutique

Repair sun-damaged skin!  The Brow Boutique is gearing up for Fall. We have a voluminous Autumn lineup that will have your skin screaming for more!

 

Recuperating from sun-damaged skin can be challenging. Most of us forget to apply sunscreen half the time, and even if you aren’t directly under the sun, the sun gets reflected off everything! The sun can cause dryness, patches, pigmentation, and sunspots, which can stay with you all winter long. Resuscitate and repair your summer skin by doing some of the following:

At home you can utilize seasonal fruits that will help you cleanse your insides leaving our outside hydrated and radiant.

1 cup Fresh Pineapple

1 whole lemon

½ half a pomegranate

Blend it all together and add it 2liters of water.

Drink this vitamin and antioxidant filled cocktail all day and start feeling beautiful inside!


 

Sun-damaged remedies:

 

A simple daily cleanser would be to use our Black Soap. It is filled with coconut oil, palm oil, palm kernel oil, shea butter and cocoa butter. They also contain ashes from different plants, like shea tree bark, banana trees, cocoa pods, and plantain leaves. For centuries, Ghanaians and Nigerians have used black soap to help relieve acne, oily skin, clear blemishes and various other skin issues. Many swear by it for skin irritations and conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.

08 Sep The 411 on Microneedling done at the Brow Boutique Portland and Lake Oswego

What is Microneedling? Microneedling is done using an electric skin needling device made especially for this purpose. The Dermapen is an award-winning device shaped like a pen that uses disposable tip that is in cased with very fine needles. It is a sterile medical device used in microneedling to break down old scar tissue and to stimulate skin cells to proliferate. This cell multiplication results in the formation of new tissue layers of elastin and collagen fibers as well as in new capillaries for an improved blood supply.

 

microneedling portland lake oswego brow boutique


What conditions can be treated or improved with Microneedling?

  • Mild to moderate acne scarring; any new or old scars
  • Fine lines and wrinkles;
  • Loose, lax skin;
  • Improves skin texture and reduces pore size
  • Stretch marks on all parts of the body

 

How does Microneedling work? The device that we use is the best-rated Microneedling pen out there, called Dermapen.  The Dermapen glides along the surface of the skin, penetrating the upper layers of the skin to a depth of up to 2mm to create numerous tiny needle wounds. The procedure prompts the body to respond through the creation of new collagen and elastin fibers underneath the dermis. In response to the stimulus, the skin plumps and tightens, reducing the appearance of scars, and fine lines and wrinkles.

What does the procedure involve? The skin is cleaned and numbing cream may be applied to lessen discomfort. For better results we use a collagen-stimulating product like Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin-C serum or skin lightener for pigmentation during the procedure. A small handheld pen like device with a sterile, disposable tip with tiny needles is then used to pierce the skin. The Dermapen has multiple speeds and adjustable needle depth allow needles to pierce the skin’s layer at 90 degrees and increase the absorption of products. After the treatment, soothing Vitamin-C serum or Hyaluronic acid are used to hydrate, heal and protect the skin.

What will I look like after the treatment? Most people will experience redness and mild swelling in a similar way as mild sunburn for 24-48 hours and there may be minimal pin-point bleeding and/or light bruising. Almost immediately, you will notice your skin tighten. Within a week or two, you will notice that your skin is smoother and more radiant looking but the full effects won’t be seen until a few months later.

What is the down time after Microneedling treatment? The inflammatory reaction of the skin is extremely short and fades significantly within hours from redness to pinkish that may last for 12 to 24 hours. In order to reduce visible redness, we recommend hyaluronic acid after the procedure, and to protect the skin with zinc based sunblock. The use of mineral makeup is recommended after procedure.

 

What are the benefits of Microneedling?

  • Dramatically increases the effectiveness and penetration of active ingredients in topical preparation
  • Stimulates circulation and collagen production
  • Medical grade titanium needles makes it non-allergenic to human tissue
  • Cost effective compared to other resurfacing procedures
  • Can be performed on all skin types, including ethnic skin
  • It can be used on all areas of the scalp, face, body including fragile skin like around eyes, mouth and neck

 

What effects does the Microneedling have on the skin?

  • Improves skin texture and reduces the appearance of wrinkles
  • Stimulates tissue regeneration
  • Disfiguring scars, especially acne scars can be improved as new collagen fibers elevate the depressed scar tissue with the periphery skin
  • Pore size reduction
  • Improves the appearance of stretch marks

 

Is Microneedling painful? Prior to the treatment, numbing cream will be applied to minimize pain that is felt during the procedure.

Can Microneedling be performed on any skin color? Microneedling is safe to use on all skin types and all skin colors. There is no risk of post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation.

How many treatments do I need and how often can  Microneedling procedures be repeated? Microneedling can be safely repeated every 4-6 weeks until you achieve the desired results. For collagen induction we recommend to start with 4 treatments, but with a minimum separation time of 4 to 6 weeks between treatments. For scar reduction an average of 3 to 6 treatments are recommended. The number of treatments required will depend on how each individual responds to the treatments, and the extent of the damage at the beginning Microneedling can be used on all skin parts of the body (neck, décolleté, arms, legs, etc). Most people will begin to see results after the very first appointment.

What should I avoid on my skin after treatment? To ensure the right healing environment, for 2-3 days do not use AHA’s (glycolic Acid), retinol, acidic or “active” ingredients. Exposure to sun should also be avoided or zinc based sunblock should be used.

What are the side effects of the Microneedling procedure? There are virtually no negative side effects, and none have ever been reported in over 150,000 procedures performed worldwide.

HERE IS A CLIP FROM GOOD MORNING AMERICA, LISTEN TO WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY…”IT’S THE NEW FACE LIFT”

 


 

“I just had this service done by Tasneem on Monday, and I have to say the treatment was essentially pain free, and I felt my skin immediately respond to the needling procedure. Today my skin feels amazingly tight, and I can feel the turnover process happening as well. I am scheduled for 5 more treatments, scheduled about a month and a half apart. I have some acne scaring from when I was a teen that we will be focusing on. I love that the brow boutique is up-to-date with the technology times. Thanks Tasneem! ~ Theresa Hutchison
