My New Year’s resolutions mean a lot to me, even though I don’t always succeed in keeping them. This year, I am resolving to take better care of my skin. I know that I spend too much time in the sun and forget to use my humidifier in winter, but I’m going to start making skin care a year-round priority in 2017. I’ve already kicked off my plans by taking my home skin treatment routine to a new level. Dr. J. J. Wendel Plastic Surgery recently started offering the MTS Roller™ for at-home microneedling treatments, and I jumped at the opportunity to add this incredible device to my beauty arsenal.
The Microneedle Therapy System (MTS) derma roller is a small, handheld tool that is covered in tiny, sterile needles. When you roll it over your skin, it makes microscopic puncture wounds; your skin’s response to the tiny injuries is to produce more collagen and elastin, which helps heal the wounds. The beautiful side effect of this natural healing process is that it resurfaces your skin just like laser resurfacing and microdermabrasion. Skin damage is negligible, and the end result is awesome. Without pain or downtime and from the comfort of home, the MTS Roller reduces small wrinkles, minimizes age-related changes, smooths scars, treats hyperpigmentation and strengthens your skin. It also increases your skin’s ability to absorb valuable serums used during the treatment.
When it comes to new medical aesthetics treatments, I like to test the waters first, so I received a microneedling treatment at Dr. Wendel’s office. The procedure involved several steps and products, but it was comfortable and quick. My skin was a little red and felt tingly afterwards, but this quickly faded. Satisfied with the experience, I purchased a derma roller and several products to use with it including the VitaPep serum, a sterilization kit and a soothing Peptide Aqua Gel Mask. Lori and Paige, my favorite nurse practitioners, took plenty of time to teach me how to use the system properly at home. My skin already looks and feels great, and I have a feeling that this is going to be a great year. Grab your MTS Roller kit at Dr. J. J. Wendel Plastic Surgery, and get ready to roll out beautiful skin in 2017!
