What are “beauty injections” for the face and what types of them exist in cosmetology? Are facial injections suitable for skin rejuvenation, hydration and repair? What is the most effective or safest injections? How to properly care for your skin after beauty injections? In this article, we would like to talk about the most common questions about aesthetic treatments we offer in our beauty clinic.
Facial injections (also called beauty injections) are literally injections to the face: vitamins, hyaluronic acid, fillers and other anti-aging drugs aimed at reducing certain skin imperfections. Fillers and Injections are very popular in cosmetology, as they do not injure the skin, aimed to work directly on the problem and have a wide range of applications.
The most common indications for prescribing a course of anti-aging facial injections include:
Beauty Injections have quite a few contraindications: first of all, it is an allergy to the components of the administered drugs, as well as chronic endocrine diseases, oncology, acute infectious and inflammatory processes, pregnancy and lactation.
Modern injections in cosmetology are aimed at restoring the skin’s own resources, correcting mimic and age wrinkles, and replenishing the lost volume of the face.
List of beauty injections’ names is quite wide as every product is aimed to target different types of imperfections.
Anti-Age Injections is the most popular and demanded cosmetic procedure. Anti-Age Injections therapy drugs work by reducing muscle activity. However, don’t worry, your facial expressions will remain, but without wrinkles and dermal creases! You can smile, laugh, show other emotions, but without wrinkles.
At Moda Donna Beauty Clinics, we work with the original brands. It has a high degree of penetration into tissues, so the effect occurs faster.
Where can Anti-Age Injections be injected?
It is used to eliminate wrinkles on all areas of the face – forehead, eyebrows, periorbital zone (“crow’s feet” around the eyes), pouches near the lips.
How long does it take for Anti-Age Injections to show a visible effect?
The patient notices the first effect 2-3 days after the procedure. Wrinkles go away, skin completely restores in 2-3 weeks.
This is similar to skin biorevitalization. Despite this, mesotherapy has a difference – instead of just hylouronic acid, meso-cocktails with vitamins and amino acids are injected. They contain a whole spectrum of useful substances – hyaluronic acid, trace elements, amino acids, peptides. Meso-cocktails have a powerful effect on cellular processes, so mesotherapy copes well with premature skin aging.
When mesotherapy may be needed?
In Moda Donna Beauty Clinic, with the help of mesotherapy you can solve common skin problems:
Quite often, mesotherapy is used as a preparatory procedure before plastic surgery on the face and as a restorative agent during the rehabilitation period after. In some cases, this method is used in conjunction with other activities.
Fillers based on hyaluronic acid are used for facial contouring. With their help, the oval of the face is corrected, the nasolabial wrinkles are filled, the lost tissue volume is replenished.
Nowadays, the technique of contour plastics have changed comparing to a few years ago. If before, the fillers after the fillers would be strong and visible, these days, the modern techniques and fillers will allow to create a natural results without the “too much” look.
Fillers are used not only to smooth out wrinkles, but also to restore the volume of tissues in the zygomatic, temporal and buccal zones, to model the lips and chin area, to recreate a beautiful contour and eliminate asymmetry. Today, the procedure for correcting the shape and volume of the lips is very popular. Modern gels eliminate the appearance of “pumped” lips and create a natural look. Lips after correct injections are slightly swollen and seductive.
Fillers based on hyaluronic acid are injected into the tissues to create additional volume. The procedure is painless, it takes 30-60 minutes, after which you can immediately start your daily activities.
This is the first drug in the world that combines the effects of lifting and moisturizing at the same time. This synergy is called Hydrolift.
The preparation is based on hyaluronic acid with low and high molecular weight in equal proportions. This is a special hybrid technology developed and patented by IBSA scientists.
Low molecular weight hyaluronic acid moisturizes the skin and gives a reinforcing effect.
High molecular weight improves local blood circulation, stimulates the production of collagen and provides tissue lifting. This is achieved due to the accumulation of water molecules around the high molecular weight acid.
In general, Profhilo activates the vital activity of not only fibroblasts and keratinocytes, but also adipocytes (fat cells), maintains their viability, which leads to the restoration of its own subcutaneous fat, the deficit of which is determined with age.
The Profhilo achieves an easy, dynamic increase in soft tissue volume and an impressive improvement in skin quality. After the injection of the Profhilo into the skin, the skin quickly recovers, the risk of inflammation and complications is reduced to zero.
High fluidity allows the drug components to freely pass through the subcutaneous tissue and dermis, which is inaccessible to traditional fillers with hyaluronic acid. The Profhilo is ideal for injecting into anatomically difficult areas, such as forehead, neck, submandibular areas.
Here are the basic guidelines that work for almost all types of injections to the face: for skin rejuvenation, facial hydration, wrinkles and other possible blemishes on the face:
The procedures themselves are quite similar and are not particularly difficult for specialists. Here is an approximate order of their actions:
Injections in cosmetology are not recommended if you have any of the following:
Another popular question women ask: is it possible to do beauty injections in cosmetology during pregnancy and breastfeeding? Pregnancy and lactation are relative contraindications. During this period, we recommend to women to focus on their wellbeing and postpone cosmetic manipulations.
The filler never spreads over the face. A human’s face is conventionally divided into many zones – the drug cannot move from one to another. Moreover, high-quality fillers tend to get fixed, they are “fixed” in the tissues and get overgrown with collagen.
Only improperly injected fillers can cause severe swelling. If the filler is injected deep enough, then this is physiologically impossible. However, everything is individual, and there are a number of patients with a genetic predisposition to edema. In this case, after visiting a beautician, you should limit yourself in food and drink, which cause additional swelling.
Each person has individual filler durability, but in practice – the effect lasts up to one and a half years, sometimes a little more. The durability of a filler depends on how the body breaks down hyaluronic acid and similar components. In simple words, the quicker metabolism you have, the quicker fillers will dissolve.
Beauty injections, in terms of their relative safety and efficiency, are of course a reasonable decision, but you need to remember that you should only trust aesthetic specialists. In the case of an incompetent approach, complications such as bruising at the injection spots, inflammation, migration of the gel are possible. There are also more serious negative consequences, for example, allergic reactions of the body or compression of blood vessels, which prevents normal blood flow.
The extensive experience of Moda Donna Beauty Clinic professionals allows you to avoid such problems.
In addition, Moda Donna Beauty Clinic has a number of extra benefits:

Have you ever dreamt about perfect skin in a matter of hours, rather than months and years? Or maybe you have skin concerns that you do not know how to cope with anymore?
Chemical Peel might be just the right procedure for you. To describe chemical peel in three words: affordable, quick, effective.
In fact, chemical peeling has been with us for a very long time. Back in 500 BC, the ancient Egyptians exfoliated the skin with an explosive mixture of alabaster, animal oils, salt and honey. At the end of the 19th century, phenol or carbolic acid was used to lighten the skin, and in the 40s of the last century, doctors began to work with salicylic acid – yes, with the one that is now in every pharmacy.
Today, products that contain α-hydroxy acids (AHA) and β-hydroxy acids (BHA) are used for face peeling. Among the AHA acids, the most famous are lactic, almond, glycolic, pyruvic. And the main representative of BHA acids is salicylic acid. One product can contain from three to five different acids. However, let’s continue talking about peels.
Chemical peel is controlled damage to the skin using chemical formulations to correct aesthetic imperfections. The procedure allows you to solve a wide range of problems: to eliminate acne and scars, wrinkles, age spots and other age-related changes.
Women who keep up with modern (and scientifically proved) trends in personal care are signing up for a chemical peel, not because it is fashionable, but because the peel is really good for the skin of the face. Why is that?
In addition, in response to a controlled chemical burn, which is a chemical peeling, the skin begins to actively synthesize hyaluronic acid and connective fibers of the intercellular tissue. As a result, the aging and glycation processes of the skin slow down.
Chemical peel is based on exfoliating the upper layer of the epidermis and softening the cells of the epidermis, the effect depends on the duration and depth of exposure to the substances. There are the following types:
Superficial peeling. They are carried out to refresh the complexion, moisturize and easily smooth out skin relief. Great for getting rid of comedones and blackheads, normalizing the sebaceous glands. Superficial peels are universal, they are done at any age, and after 25 years, procedures are included in basic facial care to smooth shallow wrinkles, improve skin color, and prevent aging. The procedures are not painful and quick, but after it, there is a slight redness and exfoliation, which quickly passes.
Medium peeling. The main indication is a decrease in elasticity and the appearance of wrinkles. The session is accompanied by a burning sensation, after 1-2 days redness, swelling and peeling appear, which disappear after 5-7 days. The result is a smoothing of the relief, a slight lifting, reduction of wrinkles, an evening of the skin colour. Visually, a person is at least 5 years younger. Medium chemical peeling with acids is recommended after 30 years old, the gap between courses is about 2 years.
Deep peeling. It is carried out only in a clinic, the procedure is painful, with a long rehabilitation period and a high risk of infection and scarring. Therefore, it is not very popular – there are more gentle methods of rejuvenation.
Indications for the chemical peels:
Absolute contraindications for chemical peeling:
Typically, the procedure consists of five stages.
You may need a soothing mask after the procedure. And for sure, a cream with high sunscreen filters. After the exfoliation, the skin is especially sensitive, the doctor must make sure that it is protected from factors that provoke irritation and hyperpigmentation.
Chemical peel can be carried out as a course or as a one-time procedure.
Chemical facial peels work well with other skin resurfacing treatments. “Alternate them with biorevitalization (hyaluronic acid injections) to moisturize and tighten the skin,” advises Igneta, Moda Donna Clinics Manager. “For example, in tandem with microdermabrasion (mechanical peeling), chemical peeling fights photoaging, fine lines and acne scars.”
Chemical peels have many advantages, such as rapid effect, preservation of the result for a long time, versatility of application, the ability to rejuvenate the face for 3-5 years without surgery or using expensive cosmetics.
Disadvantages of chemical peeling are discomfort during the procedure, redness, swelling and active exfoliation of the face. For some time after the procedure, you will have to spend at home or you will have to explain to others what happened to you. The disadvantages include the mandatory use of sunscreens, special care, the need to complete a whole course to obtain a lasting effect.
There is also the likelihood of undesirable effects – hyperpigmentation, skin infection, allergic reactions, scarring, exacerbation of skin diseases. But this can be easily avoided by entrusting the procedure to professionals and strictly following all the recommendations of the cosmetologist.
So where to do the peeling: at home or in the salon? At home, it seems, it comes out to be cheaper. We will explain why this cosmetic initiative is dangerous and why it is better to trust a professional:
1) You can literally “burn” your skin
Peeling is an actual skin burn. The degree of this burn is regulated by the cosmetologist: she selects the solution for the type of skin and strictly monitors the time of its application. Application technology is also important. Imagine how, through negligence or ignorance of an amateur beginner, such a serious procedure can affect the skin: it risks getting burned, and after a burn, scars.
2) The cosmetologist will select an effective course
Can you identify your skin type? Do you think that it is dry, but in fact it is dehydrated? The cosmetologist will be able to choose a peel for your skin type and its needs, make an optimal course, which can consist of peels of different depths and strengths, and control the processes of regeneration and recovery – he will select the appropriate home care and give practical recommendations.
3) Folk remedies don’t work
It is impossible to “create” acid peeling at home. Yes, the mild AHAs used in surface peels are often derived from fruits and berries. But strawberry puree doesn’t actually do anything to your face.
4) Effective peels are not publicly available to purchase
Professional chemical peels cannot be purchased at your local store. Manufacturers are aware of the risks and provide purchase options only to those who know how to work with such products. Most of the professional multi-acid peels can be purchased only by uploading a document that confirms the qualifications of a specialist, or by completing training at the training center, for example if you completed a Chemical Peel Masterclass at Moda Donna PMU & Beauty Academy.
5) Chemical peels at home are not cheap
The peeling procedure itself is not only about applying the basic solution. It includes a whole range of products for skin preparation and acid neutralization. That is why it will not work to save money and buy “just one bottle”.
Chemical peels and facials are essential at any age. But in order to achieve results, the procedure should be carried out only by professional cosmetologists!
At Moda Donna Beauty Clinics we are proud of professionalism of our therapist that have years of experience and relevant qualifications. There are range of chemical peels to choose from and the beautician will aim to choose the peel that suits your skin the best.
Stay healthy and look after yourself from young age.
High-quality facial skin care allows you to keep your skin fresh, taut, preserving your beauty and attractiveness, regardless of age. Modern cosmetology offers many methods to keep the skin in good condition.
In order to ensure procedure’s complete safety and maximum efficiency, it is better to use the services of a beauty salon. Each cosmetologist is allowed to work with clients only after confirming the appropriate qualifications, which minimizes the risk of complications after the procedure. In addition, salons often use equipment that is not available for home use.
Facials are the most popular treatments clients choose to do in beauty salons for many years. In modern clinics, three types of facials are practiced the most: mechanical, ultrasonic (using a special machine) and combined. The choice of one or another type is carried out by the cosmetologist individually in accordance with the characteristics of the skin and its condition. Facial cleansing is often combined with masks and facial massage, the type of which is also selected by a specialist depending on skin problems.
This procedure allows you to get rid of dead skin cells, removes sebaceous secretions, makes the face radiant and youthful. If the pores are enlarged, blackheads are often formed. The most affordable option for removing them is manually using a special tool. It is good even for teenage age skin. Atraumatic cleansing using hardware cosmetology allows you to normalize the functioning of the sebaceous glands. The use of ultrasonic waves is also in high demand: they warm up the deep layers of the skin, improve metabolism, and remove all impurities.

Over the past decade, chemical peels have become part of the minimum skin care program for all skin types. The difference after several treatments is visible to the eye, and home care products immediately begin to work and absorb better, as if acid exfoliation increases the skin’s permeability to active ingredients. In fact, it is. So what is this procedure, chemical peeling, and how is it useful for the skin?
Chemical peel is an intensive exfoliation of the stratum corneum of the epidermis. While we are young, the skin gets rid of “dead” cells on its own, but after 25-30 years, keratinization processes gradually intensify. Then acids come to the rescue. Peeling is used in cosmetology for another reason – it gives a consistently good result for the skin with various aesthetic problems, whether it is a fossa after chickenpox or black spots (pores clogged with a mixture of sebum and keratinized cells).
A chemical peel made of a high acid lotion, performed in a salon or clinic by a qualified beautician, is less traumatic than mechanical cleaning of the face, and faster than acid products intended for home use.

Permanent make-up is a cosmetic procedure of injecting a special pigment into the upper layers of the skin. This pigment is able to give natural brightness and saturation to lips, eyebrows and eyes.
Many people mistakenly believe that permanent makeup and tattooing are the same procedure. However, the procedures are fundamentally different from each other:

Laser hair removal is perhaps the fastest and most effective of all the existing methods of getting rid of unnecessary hair forever. The duration of the procedure depends on where exactly you want to remove unwanted hair. So, for example, the upper lip zone only takes 10-12 minutes, the bikini area – 10-15 minutes, and so on. The maximum processing time for the legs – can go up to 1 hour.
Of course, the effect of absolutely smooth and delicate skin is not achieved immediately. This can be explained. When the laser beam passes through the hair, the cells containing melanin are heated, and the subsequent destruction of the hair follicle occurs. In this case, the skin is not damaged, but slightly heats up and then quickly cools down. Laser hair removal allows you to remove only those hairs that have grown by 3-5 mm and are visible on the surface, we say that they are in the phase of active growth. But there are always “sleeping” hair follicles that enter the growth phase after the procedures, therefore, to completely remove unwanted hair, several sessions are required. So how many procedures do you need to completely remove unwanted hair? The answer to this question is very individual. Someone needs from 1 to 3 procedures, someone may need 6 to 10 sessions.

In cases where other methods are powerless, cosmetologists recommend more serious methods of maintaining the beauty. Beauty injections help not only fight age-related manifestations, but also achieve aesthetic goals. The most demanded services in this kind of cosmetology are contour plastics and botulinum therapy. Contour plastics allows to improve face lines through the injection of collagen, hyaluronic acid and other fillers, while the botulinum therapy helps to smooth wrinkles with the help of botulinum toxin injection.
One of the most popular filler procedures is Lips Augmentation. This procedure is very popular, does not cause complications and is used everywhere. With its help, you can improve the contour of the lips, make them symmetrical and more voluminous. For lip augmentation, fillers that are “fill” the lips from the inside. The most effective and safe are injections based on hyaluronic acid. They are inserted by injection, which does not require complex preparation and does not take much time. At the same time, patients do not need to stay in the clinic for a long period.

The body can be corrected both through surgery and through cosmetology. However, most people give their preference to cosmetology.
Cryolipolysis is one of the safest and most effective methods used to remove localized fat by freezing it. During the cryolipolysis method, fat tissue (skin and fatty fold) is placed between special applicators, after which it is gradually (within an hour) cooled to 5 degrees Celsius. With gradual cooling in the cells of adipose tissue (adipocytes), the transition of lipid inclusions (fats) from a liquid to a solid form occurs. Crystallization of fats is an inevitable process, because their melting point is at the level of 17 – 20 degrees, and at a lower temperature, lipids acquire a crystalline structure.
Vacuum massage is one of the most effective methods of massage to fight cellulite. Its principle of action is based on creating pressure inside the special cans, which helps to increase blood flow in tissues and skin, increase tone, and eliminate toxins. One of the main advantages of massage is its targeted effect on almost all problem areas of the body and the minimum number of contraindications. The advantages of this method include the painlessness of the procedure, the absence of side effects, as well as the achievement of a stable result in a short period of time. Vacuum massage performed on muscles and tendons causes significant relaxation.
Pressotherapy (or lymphatic drainage) is an apparatus massage that uses compressed air. It from the special machine into a special suit. It can affect both the whole body and individual parts: arms, legs, lower back, abdomen. The device has special software for adjusting the intensity and time of pressure. The patient does not feel any discomfort or pain during the procedure, on the contrary, heat spreads through the body and the muscles relax. It is interesting that Pressotherapy was originally created for the treatment of varicose veins. It strengthens vascular walls well and normalizes blood flow in the extremities.
Pressotherapy is effective for cellulite, weight loss, and loose skin. This technique is often prescribed after trauma, stroke, surgery, and joint problems. According to research data, one session of such massage replaces several manual procedures or 2 workouts in the gym. This technique is ideal for people who are sedentary, overweight, and malnourished.

The skin – is the body’s heaviest and largest organ. It covers 20 square feet and protects the human body from the outside. Alongside there is much more to the skin than just protection. It is a protective barrier that helps us maintain the precise internal temperature allowing us to sense everything through nerve endings.
Skin is a complex organ that contains:
This article is here to help you to cover the basic skin issues: what is healthy skin, how it is constructed, healthy skin diet and proper daily skin routine.
All of us has different skin type, and the best way to get the healthiest and happiest skin possible is to embrace 3 things:
1) learn your skin. Try to understand what it wants and needs;
2) find your personal way to daily skin routine;
3) get rid of stuff that’s not meant for your skin.
Here are some main signs of naturally healthy skin:
Do you have these signs? If yes – our congrats, you have a perfectly healthy skin type. But nevertheless, one should never stop taking care after skin all over your body. But what is the correct skincare way and how to find a personal-best approach based on individual issues?
First of all, you should always remember:
Modern international trends like “glass skin”, Instagram models and bloggers are demonstrating seemingly-natural, perfect faces using masks and filters, looking like some absolutely flawless creatures making you feel down as if your skin isn’t perfect or so. Don’t ring the alarm at once but try to stay calm and think critically.
Even some small bit of texture or redness or any other skin issues doesn’t mean that your skin is in bad condition. If you have a regular skincare regimen – you are on the safe side and you re on the right way to maintain healthy skin.
Hydrated Your Skin Enough
Water. Drinking enough water is vital for our internal organs and is crucial to keeping your skin healthy. Begin your day from a glass of warm water. This way your body will wake up and the necessary water level after night will be normalized. If you’re drinking enough water per day, at about 2L per day, your skin will be hydrated enough.
Another fascinating fact about drinking enough still water every day – your skin will be glowing giving off a slight shine. Don’t believe it? Try and examine your skin while rotating it slowly under daylight. You will definitely see the sheen.
You feel nothing
Do you have a feeling that your skin doesn’t feel like anything – it is just there and that is it? No discomfort, no uncomfortable sensations, no dryness, no rushing, etc? No sighs of that? Great, it means that your skin is doing perfectly fine. The same thing is crucial for when you are wearing skin products or makeup on your face – you should have the same feeling of “nothing”.
In case there are some strange sensations like itching or burning, it is better to check in with your dermatologist and change up your skincare routine.
You have the same skin color all over the body
A consistent skin color that is the same on all body parts – is a positive sign that your skin is in a good and healthy condition, free of common skin diseases. While having everyday bath procedures it is vital to do a regular self-check to make sure your skin is clean.
In case there are some signs of dark spots or redness, it is a sign that something else is going on and that something can be eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, etc. especially if it has occurred lately. Our advice: check in to your dermatologists and get a bit of advice on how to proceed.
Regular Skin Exfoliation
Exfoliation is a necessary procedure that should be done at least 3 times a week. It helps to remove dry or dead skin cells on the surface of the skin and increases blood circulation, which in turn makes your face and body look glowing. So if you’re combating that by exfoliating both your face and body regularly, you’ll reap the anti-dullness benefits that exfoliation provides.
Do you want to have healthy skin every day?
Of course, you do. Everybody does. It might sound difficult but in reality, it is not that hard to give your skin a proper treatment. All you need in the first place is your time and discipline.
Check out our 10 simple advice on how to make your skin look healthy and clean.
1. Always wash your face before bed. This is an important step as night time is a time for all the renovate processing for your body. Make sure your skin is ready before that.
2. Always wash your face in the morning. Wash your face for 30 to 45 seconds with a dime-size amount of face wash. That’s how long it takes to clear dirt and oil off your face after night time. Hairstyling products and dust get absorbed by your pillowcase and then transfer to your skin. Make sure you’ve had proper wash otherwise it’ll clog your pores all day long.
3. Be gentle to your skin. Don’t scrub it too hard as it can leave skin rough and red. Your face and body skin should be treated gently. Skip harsh scrubs and washcloths, which can be too rough on your face and can cause irritation.
4. Use a cleansing brush. Fingers can’t clean inside of teeny tiny pores. It better uses an exfoliating brush with tiny bristles that can actually get inside to work the grime out of your skin. If you will start using this thing – you’ll notice a change in your skin within a very short period of time.
5. Clean your phone. Yes, your phone should be cleaned as much as possible. If you’re seeing pimples on your cheeks or anywhere near the area where you hold your phone, they may be from your phone. Since it’s always in your hand, your phone picks up lots of bacteria, which can then get transferred to your face when you make a phone call. Wipe your screen with an anti-bacterial wipe often to get rid of germs.
6. Don’t touch your face. Do you know how you rest your chin on your hand when you’re sitting in class? That might be the reason for those blemishes on your cheek or jaw. You’re constantly touching things that have germs — anything from your phone to your locker — so, putting your hands on your face transfers all of that onto your skin.
7. Use a proper amount of daily care. Too many products can irritate and too many steps may tempt you to skip the procedure. Find the best personal solution and make sure you have enough time for it.
8. Wash your make-up brushes. Make sure to wash your makeup brushes regularly with brush cleanser or soap. If you use makeup sponges, wash those too. These tools can accumulate bacteria, which can lead to breakouts. Dirty brushes can make the most expensive skincare routines go to waste.
9. Have a good sleep. Staying late at night is not healthy for you or your skin. Not sleeping enough can make your hormones get out of whack and raise your body’s stress levels, which can make you breakout. Aim to get at least eight hours of sleep to look and feel your best.
10. Get your SPF on. Sunscreen isn’t just for summer — your skin needs protection every day, even in winter. There are now sunscreens for every skin type imaginable
Healthy Skin Diet
Nutrition is important for health: it regulates your metabolism, takes care of your inner organs and has a great impact on your skin.
Every new scientist’s test proves that a human’s diet can significantly affect the health and skin aging issues. So what is a perfect food for healthy skin? Here is our list.
1. Fatty fish
Salmon, mackerel, and herring are excellent foods for healthy skin. It is a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are important for maintaining skin health and are necessary to help keep skin thick, supple, and moisturized. Fatty fish is also a source of vitamin E which is considered to be one of the most important antioxidants for your skin.
Avocados are another source of vitamin E and are high in healthy fats. Getting enough of these fats is essential to help keep skin flexible, moisturized and may help protect your skin from sun damage.
Walnuts have many characteristics that make them an excellent food for healthy skin. They contain nutrients that your skin needs to function properly and stay healthy.
4. Sunflower seeds
In general, nuts and seeds are good sources of skin-boosting nutrients.
5. Red or yellow bell peppers
It is an excellent source of beta-carotene, which your body converts into vitamin A which keeps skin firm and strong.
Broccoli is full of many vitamins and minerals important for skin health, including zinc, vitamin A, and vitamin C. It also contains lutein, a carotenoid that works like beta-carotene.
Tomatoes are a great source of vitamin C that contains all of the major carotenoids, including lycopene which makes them an excellent food for maintaining healthy skin.
9. Dark chocolate
If you need a reason to eat chocolate, here it is: cocoa powder consuming makes skin thicker and more hydrated. Cool, right? But make sure you choose dark chocolate with at least 70% cocoa and do eat too much.
As you can see – your diet affects your look and have a big impact on your skin health. Make sure you’re getting enough essential nutrients to protect your skin and your skin will look healthy and shiny.
One technology that has been proven to deliver amazing results is the Dermatech Pen Micro-Needling. The treatment is a form of collagen induction therapy where a series of needles penetrate the skin causing thousands of micro injuries at a vertical angle using a specialist medical device, for both faster and more precise needle penetration. The procedure leads to increased collagen production, which effectively repairs scars, reduces discolouration and renews tired looking skin.
What is it?
It is one of the preferred techniques of Beauty Centres’ aestheticians for many reasons. It is a safe and effective technique when it is accompanied by an application protocol, as in this way we stimulate the rejuvenation of the skin in a natural way with visible results without altering the facial features.
Dermatech Pen, what is it and how does it work?
Dermatech Pen is an automatic micro-puncture device developed by Germaine de Capuccini. Unlike others, the experts from Germaine de Capuccini have developed an exclusive application method after a long period of trials that have resulted in a unique therapy, minimally invasive, effective and safe.
This technique is based on the skin’s capacity to self-regenerate naturally. The aesthetician will personalise the treatment depending on the skin type and needs.
The applicator has 36 ultra-fine micro-needles that carry out micro-punctures on the skin, stimulating the liberation of growth factors that favour the skin regeneration process, increase collagen and elastin production and generate an improvement of the quality and texture of the skin.
What benefits do I get?
Apart from being a totally personalised treatment, the results are visible in very little time: global anti-ageing, firmness, fading of expression lines and wrinkles, revitalisation of the face, more homogeneous tone and improvement of the skin’s texture (thick skin with open pore).
Who is it recommended for?
It is an ideal treatment for those who look for a global rejuvenation of the face.
It is very recommendable for youthful skin that wants to recover the face after the summer, as it is highly recommended for pallid and dull skin.
The only skin that cannot benefit from this therapy is sensitive skin.
How many sessions are necessary?
The ideal is to carry out 4 sessions (1 every two weeks). Once finished, to maintain the results it is advisable to carry out 1 session every 4 weeks.
To achieve incredibly radiant skin, in alternate weeks we recommend carrying out the in-booth treatment suited to the problem being treated.
Is it painful? Can there be side effects?
Thanks to the application method developed by the Germaine de Capuccini experts the therapy with Dermatech Pen is painless, it is even pleasant, according to the tests carried out on volunteers.
The pain threshold is very personal. In some of the tests the volunteers informed of “a certain uncomfortable sensation” on the facial areas where the bone is nearer, such as the forehead.
