aerating lawns & Skincare
The idea of aerating lawns has always perplexed me
When I asked my dad about it, he told me it would make the grass nicer, the dumbest thing you ever heard right? The idea that nutrients will penetrate deeper into the soil and stimulate growth, thus the lawn will grow fuller and more luscious than it was before.
Turns out, grown-ups might know a thing or two, and aerating lawns is the perfect analogy for these next two services.
Micro-needling is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that uses fine needles to treat and improve common skin issues such as acne scarring, wrinkles, pigmentation and stretch marks.
Microneedling works by creating tiny, superficial punctures on the upper layer of skin a chain reaction is initiated, activating the body’s natural healing processes.
A permanent makeup machine is used to penetrate the skin from 0.25 millimeters to 2.5 millimeters in depth, depending on what skin condition is being treated. the punctures are so thin that they cannot be seen by the naked eye.
However, Our bodies deem these 1mm incisions as ‘trauma’, which force the release of both collagen and elastin to aid in healing, creating new capillaries that work to improve blood flow and enhance your skin’s texture and structure. and boosting its skin renewal efforts. In all reality, we are tricking our body into releasing more of the healing proteins which will then allow the skin to heal stronger than ever.
Both BB Glow and Micro-needling are virtually the same treatment.
BB Glow, uses a pigmented serum during the procedure instead of just a targeted skincare serum. The ‘puncture marks’ enable the serum or pigment to seep just below the surface. Unlike botox, clients will notice an immediate change.
Both Micro-needling and BB Glow will give skin a plump, lifted and youthful appearance, with a radiant complexion. BB Glow has the added benefit of providing a sheer ‘BB Cream’ like coverage. The pigments coverage soften hyperpigmentation, rosacea, blemishes, and even dark under eye circles.
With both services, the Skin will appear dewy and glows almost as if it’s ‘lit from within’. Any fine lines, acne scars or large pores are early invisible to the naked eye and wrinkles are less apparent.
According to a 2008 study, skin treated with four micro-needling sessions spaced one month apart produced up to a 400% increase in collagen and elastin six months after completing treatment.
