That means no more cleanup sessions, glow treatments and hair removal services. Skincare is vital and intimate form of self-care and should be dealt with utmost care – carefully tested and hygienic products.

3. Micro-needling device
Microneedling, also known as ‘collagen induction treatment,’ stimulates collagen formation with ultra-fine needles. It’s an effective solution to reduce appearance of wrinkles, crow’s feet; in short, take years off your face.
Micro-needing device is easy-to-use and comes in two types – Manual and automatic. Manual micro-needling device called dermaroller is comparatively cheaper than automatic Pen style micro-needling tool, a one-time investment. Both the variants regenerate skin and help reduce appearance of acne scars, enhance skin suppleness, and reduce the depth of wrinkles.
The procedure makes skin a little red and irritated for a day or two if done correctly, but there’s usual. The procedure punctures skin cells, hence activating body’s immune mechanism to kick in and work on the micro-needled area first.
