Skin treatments with Sk:n

I have never been happy with my skin for as long as I can remember. I suffered with acne at one stage in my teens and still battle with hormonal breakouts on my chin every now and then. The thing that bothers me the most is how much they scar. My skin doesn't seem to heal very well and if I have a spot, the red mark will be left behind for months. I also think having a baby is taking it's toll on my skin, I have noticed it is more oily in the t-zone, dryer on my cheeks and I am getting lines and wrinkles on my forehead. Not to mention the dark circles and lines under my eyes! I know from being a Beauty Therapist that these need to be dealt with now or they will only get worse so I have been looking into the world of treatments by Sk:n.


The one Sk:n treatment I am really interested in is the Dermaroller. I have seen a demonstration of this in one of my previous jobs and the results were amazing. It is a roller with lots of tiny needles on, this is then rolled over the skin to leave tiny little holes everywhere which encourages the skin to heal itself. This brings nutrients and collagen to the skin resulting in a greater improvement to your skin. The Dermaroller can be used for rejuvenation of the skin or for acne treatment. You can see improvements after 6-12 weeks and it helps improve the skins texture, reduce pore size and help fade acne scarring. After the treatment, you will be given your own roller to carry on the aftercare at home to continue the results.


A Chemical skin peel may be a better option for you if you only have damage on the top layer of skin. These peels work by just removing the top layer of dead skin using a non-toxic chemical solution. This then encourages collagen production and skin renewal leaving the skin looking young and fresh. Peels can be used to help scarring, sun damage, rough texture, fine lines and wrinkles, freckles, dark circles and pigmentation. This is also a pain free option which may be better for some people as the Dermaroller can cause some mild discomfort. With prices starting at just £80, I think it is brilliant as for some people like me, it could really help boost confidence and ultimately change their life for the better.


 After the first treatment I noticed the difference and so did my friends. They commented on my ‘gorgeous skin’ many of them said I looked younger! I’m so much more confident now, I feel great!  — Rabina Begum


Another treatment I have in mind for when I am much older is the skin tightening treatment. I know as I get older, my skin with start to loosen and get a bit saggy. I do try to look after my appearance and as my face is on show all the time, I would probably start having this done. The great thing is this gives instant results after having it done and as you continue the treatments, the results get better. This is not an invasive treatment so it shouldn't be painful which appeals to me a lot more. As much as I want to try and look my best, I don't want anything that is invasive or involves cutting skin off!


As with all treatments, you have to be committed 100% and be sure it is what you want to do. If you are not quite there yet or think you still have a few years left before involving treatments, Sk:n's product range is a brilliant starting point for you and your skin, to get used to the way Sk:n works.
