Microneedling, a method that utilizes fine needles to create multiple small puncture holes in the skin, has gained recognition for its effectiveness in addressing various epidermal concerns. The use of CALECIM® Professional Serum in microneedling is an effective way to strengthen skin repair and rejuvenation. This article explores the combined benefits of microneedling and the Professional Serum, a stem cell skincare product, while also introducing additional at-home skincare treatments that complement this approach.
The process of microneedling creates controlled skin injury, where the epidermis layer is triggered to mend itself by creating new skin cells and stimulating collagen production. It has proven especially effective in treating acne scarring, reducing the size of pores, and improving the overall skin texture. This is how it works: these micro-injuries signal your body to produce more collagen, which plays a key role in maintaining youthful and healthy skin. The increase in collagen helps to improve your skin’s texture, keeping it firm and plump and reduces overall imperfections, such as the appearance of scars, fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, and even stretch marks. The tiny channels created by the needles also allow your skincare products to penetrate deeper into your skin, boosting their effectiveness through enhanced absorption.
The benefits are both immediate and long-term, and specialized skin needling models expand the capabilities of this procedure to at-home usage, providing an effective way to deliver topical agents more regularly. The use of the Professional Serum aids in the physiological healing processes to reduce swelling, redness, and discomfort in post-procedure applications.
The serum, containing 80% PTT-6® that’s derived from ethically sourced stem cells, contains a powerful combination of growth factors, proteins, and exosomes which renews and protects the skin barrier. This formulation of hyaluronic acid, soluble collagen, fibronectin, and active proteins in the dermis initiates immediate skin regeneration on a cellular level. The stem cell serum leverages the natural healing processes of the skin and boosts aesthetic outcomes by enhancing the results of microneedling, which makes the serum widely popular with physicians due to its fast healing capabilities.
Furthermore, applying a derma stamp onto the scalp for a microneedling treatment on the layers can help exfoliate the scalp, allowing better penetration of powerful actives. PTT-6®, the patented active ingredient of the CALECIM® range, is clinically validated to significantly reduce inflammatory signals on the scalp, according to independent studies conducted by the Singapore Polytechnic. While there are many potential causes for hair loss, chronic inflammation remains the predominant root of such cases, leading to shrinking follicles, reduced hair volume, and thinning hair. Post-derma stamping is the ideal time for the scalp to absorb topical products like the Advanced Hair System from CALECIM®, stem cell hair growth serum, as the essential nutrients and active growth factors permeate directly into the dermis, thus boosting rejuvenation.
In clinical settings, CALECIM® Professional Serum, used as a post-procedure product, reduces swelling, redness, and discomfort rapidly. This results in less downtime and quicker results for patients. Physicians recognize that the skin post-treatment is in an optimal state to absorb nutrients, making the serum widely used alongside in-clinic procedures, serving as an effective and powerful treatment.
When used in conjunction with CALECIM® Professional Multi-Action Cream, the beneficial results of the microneedling sessions are multiplied and extended beyond the clinic. Applying the serum at home ensures deeper penetration and absorption of nutrients, significantly improving the skin’s appearance. All those active growth factors and exosomes present in the PTT-6® ingredient allow it to communicate directly with skin cells, initiating the restoration process and taking the anti-aging effects of micro-needling to the next level.
Additional At-Home Skincare Treatments
Some tips for at-home microneedling include using needles that are 0.25mm or smaller, making sure to sterilize the tool, gentle rolling when moving over different facial zones, starting with once a fortnight usage, and replacing the needles regularly. Beyond microneedling, various at-home skincare treatments can also complement the benefits of CALECIM® Professional Serum.
1. Sonic Cleansing Tools
Clarisonic is an example of a sonic cleansing tool from brands like Olay and Braun, and it provides high-tech cleansing, removing more dirt and grime than normal methods. These tools prepare the skin for treatment, creating a clean surface for utilizing at-home skincare treatments.
2. At-Home Laser Treatments
At-home laser treatments offer close-to-professional results, targeting wrinkles, and fine lines, and promoting collagen production. Daily usage of these non-ablative devices is recommended for optimal results, and pairing them with the Professional Serum enhances skin lifting and tightening at home.
3. LED Light Therapy Tools
LED Light Therapy tools, available as masks, pens, or goggles, offer multi-purpose treatments with different colored lights targeting various skin issues. Red LED light speeds up collagen synthesis, amber has a soothing effect, green targets melanocytes, and blue is effective for acne. Combining the colors can also optimize skin health, and using the Professional Serum before commencing the light therapy boosts the effects when used at home.
4. Plasma Shower
The plasma shower, originally an aesthetic clinic device, can be available for at-home usage with safety measures in place. As an at-home treatment, it aids in the penetration of active ingredients like stem cell proteins from the Professional Serum into the dermis. Additionally, it also functions as an anti-bacterial treatment, suppressing melanin production and stimulating skin cells.
5. Facial Steaming
Facial steaming is a classic and traditional home therapy that can be combined with the application of the Professional Serum for a 21st-century boost. Three methods include steaming over hot water, using warm towels, or employing a home facial steamer. As the steam opens pores and de-clogs the epidermis, skin permeability is increased for better serum absorption.
6. Massage Beauty Rollers
Beauty rollers, promoting lymphatic drainage, are used by top makeup artists to decrease facial swelling. While the aesthetic benefits may be subjective, massaging with beauty rollers is a relaxing addition to skin care routines and provides a unique way to apply the daily serum.
In conclusion, microneedling with CALECIM® Professional Serum, commonly called the professional microneedling serum offers a comprehensive solution for various skin concerns. Understanding the application process and incorporating additional at-home skincare treatments can further enhance the benefits of microneedling, providing a holistic approach to skin health and its rejuvenation.
