Retinol

Can we have an impact on how our skin ages?

 The answer is: YES

Retinol (Vitamin A) is clinically proven to make a huge impact on how skin ages. Dermatologists have been prescribing it for decades as the gold standard for promoting skin cell turnover and collagen production. It can help with:-

Retinol benefits

SO …..when it comes to delivering long-term benefits and creating a more youthful appearance, it certainly gets an A+.

However, there’s a hitch: Prescription Vitamin A causes irritation and can be very drying, which makes daily use very difficult.

DC54FDED-82A5-4FF1-8207-C07918FAF408So how can you reap the benefits of Vitamin A without the irritation or the need for a Doctors script??

One way is to use products that contain a very low percentage of Retinol – this would be less irritating to the skin, but also less potent and effective (compared to prescription Vitamin A). The innovative way is to use Rodan + Fields Intensive Renewing Serum, which is the closest thing you will find to prescription strength WITHOUT drying your skin out.

This is because Intensive Renewing Serum contains a proprietary blend of powerful peptides and Retinal-MD (which is 20 times the strength of regular retinol). This will allow for visibly improved skin WITHOUT the side effects. The time-release technology keeps this anti-ageing serum working all night long to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and pores for firmer, younger-looking skin. SO …..you can revitalise the appearance of your skin while you sleep. It is designed to be tough on the signs of aging and not on your skin.

What about oral Vitamin A?

Vitamin A is a super important antioxidant / fat-soluble vitamin. It is crucial for maintaining overall health and keeping our SKIN healthy and clear. See here for the multiple skin benefits of oral vitamin A (including the best dietary sources).

Q&A:

Why should topical Retinol only be applied at NIGHT time?

Its important to keep your skin away from direct sunlight when using retinol. This is because retinol makes skin super-sensitive to UV rays and more likely to burn. In addition, the sunlight makes the product less effective. SO ALWAYS apply retinol serums in the evening before bed and remember to use sunscreen every morning.

Why does R&F Intensive renewing Serum (Retinol) come in small capsules?

The patented capsules eliminate the product’s exposure to oxygen. Oxygen decreases the efficacy of retinol dramatically – hence the creation of these little blue capsules! This intensive serum is as close as you can get to prescription Vitamin A without a visit to a doctor.

Pregnant woman and Vitamin A?

If pregnant please speak to your Doctor or Midwife before considering topical or oral Vitamin A. This is because high levels of vitamin A early in a pregnancy increases the risk for birth defects.

Rolling Back The Years – With Skin Needling

Anti-aging secret weapon

If acne scarring, ageing, pigmentation, stretch marks, sun-damage or wrinkles are a problem for you (or if you want to get better results from your existing skincare products) – then you need to know about Derma Rolling (aka Skin Needling).

Skin needling stimulates the production of collagen to create smoother, healthier skin. A variety of skin conditions can be reduced such as scarring, stretch marks, fine lines, pigmentation, enlarged pores and acne scaring.

Microscopic needles create channels within the epidermis and dermis to encourage an organic renewal and regenerating response.

Some of the Benefits

  • Visible skin rejuvenation due to collagen induction
  • Softer and smoother skin
  • Anti-aging
  • Pigmentation & sun damage
  • Acne scarring
  • Stretch marks
  • Enlarged pores
  • Rosacea
  • A dramatic increase in the effectiveness & penetration of skin care products.

Treatment Options

At Home

At home derma rollers have tiny microscopic needles and can be used 2-3 times per week (or more). They should ideally be used in the evening after cleansing and toning (if using a Toner), and prior to Night Serum / Retinol. As the roller only penetrates at a microscopic level within the skin, it is a completely comfortable experience.

In Clinic

After a thorough skin analysis, a professional Skin Therapist will perform a non-invasive needling treatment using a derma roller which has slightly bigger needles (although still microscopic) which allows for a deeper penetration. These (in-clinic) treatments have increased benefits – especially for scaring, stretch marks and enlarged pores. Clinic Needling treatments can be performed every 6-8 weeks.
The treatments are also performed at a microscopic level within the skin. SO, there is minimal discomfort. Numbing cream can however be used to provide comfort.

 Fractional Mesotherapy

2) Fractional Mesotherapy

Fractional Mesotherapy is an advanced skin needling treatment that stimulates collagen production even more. It has an amplified effect on the improvement of skin texture, fine lines and scaring.

This unique process combines micro needling with Mesotherapy (the introduction of various vitamins and complex ingredients to the dermis).

Increased Collagen Induction (anti-ageing) +
• Pigmentation reduction
• Reduced appearance of rosacea
• Pore size reduction
• Scar tissue reduction
• Reduced appearance of stretch marks
• Fast, safe and comfortable
• Minimal downtime, speedy recovery
• Chemical free treatment for all skin types

How the treatment is performed?
Fractional Mesotherapy is also a non-invasive (in clinic) treatment delivered via a Tri-M micro needling device, which looks a bit like a large pen. The device uses medical grade stainless steel needles that vertically pierce the skin, essentially working down to the dermis, leaving the outer layer of skin, the epidermis, intact. The electronic device uses a powerful motor allowing the needles to move quickly in and out of the skin. This creates micro channels in the skin, stimulating the body’s natural collagen production while also dramatically increasing the bioavailability of topical treatments and further enhancing their absorption.
