Microneedling and Serums

Microneedling and Serums: A Match Made in Skincare Heaven

If you’re a skincare enthusiast, chances are you’ve heard the term ‘microneedling’ tossed around. It’s a buzzword in the beauty world, and it seems like everyone’s jumping on the bandwagon. But what exactly is microneedling? And why should you pair it with serums, especially ones containing an ingredient derived from a rare Swiss apple variety? Let’s dive in.

Microneedling and Serums

The Science of Microneedling

Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that has revolutionized the skincare world. The process involves creating micro-injuries on the skin using tiny, sterilized needles. Although this might sound intimidating, the procedure is relatively painless and has minimal downtime.

The micro-injuries inflicted on the skin stimulate the body’s natural wound-healing processes, resulting in cell turnover and increased collagen and elastin production. Collagen is a protein that provides structure to the skin, while elastin gives the skin its elasticity. As we age, the production of these proteins decreases, leading to sagging skin and wrinkles.

By triggering the body’s repair processes, microneedling encourages the formation of new collagen and elastin, thereby reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improving the skin’s overall texture. Furthermore, microneedling can address various skin issues such as acne scars, hyperpigmentation, large pores, and uneven skin tone.

Supercharging Skincare with Serums

Now, let’s talk serums. These potent skincare products are packed with high concentrations of active ingredients designed to penetrate deep into the skin. They’re typically lighter than moisturizers, allowing them to absorb quickly and deliver nutrients directly to your skin.

When used post-micro needling, serums can take advantage of the increased skin permeability. The microchannels created by the needles enhance absorption, allowing these power-packed potions to work their magic more effectively.

But not all serums are created equal. The key lies in the ingredients, where the Uttwiler Spätlauber apple stem cells come into play.

The Role of Stem Cells in Skin Health and Regeneration

Stem cells play a critical role in maintaining the health and vitality of our skin. They are foundational cells that can self-renew and differentiate into various cell types, making them instrumental in skin repair, regeneration, and overall homeostasis.

The Function of Skin Stem Cells

The skin is our body’s largest organ, and its primary role is to serve as a protective barrier against environmental hazards. To effectively fulfill this function, the skin has a remarkable ability to continually renew itself throughout our lifetime, thanks to the presence of skin stem cells (SSCs).

These SSCs reside in the basal layer of the skin’s epidermis, which is the innermost layer. This layer comprises two types of cells: the slowly dividing epidermal stem cells, which make up about 2-7% of the basal cell population, and their rapidly dividing offspring, known as transit-amplifying cells. These transit-amplifying cells supply new cells to replace those that are lost or dying, thus maintaining the skin’s integrity.

However, the slow self-renewal process of these epidermal stem cells poses a challenge. Each stem cell has a limit to the number of divisions it can undergo. Moreover, each division carries the risk of lethal DNA mutation. Over time, this can lead to the depletion of the epidermal stem cell population. 

When the rate of cell loss exceeds the rate of cell replacement, the health and appearance of the skin begin to decline.

The Breakthrough of Uttwiler Spätlauber Apple Stem Cells

One particular plant that has caught scientists’ attention is the Uttwiler Spätlauber apple. The Uttwiler Spätlauber apple is a rare Swiss apple variety known for its extended shelf life. This apple can remain fresh long after others have shriveled up, which sparked scientists’ curiosity. They discovered that the apple’s longevity was due to its unique stem cells.

Researchers extracted these stem cells and incorporated them into skincare products. These apple stem cells stimulate human stem cell proliferation by an impressive 80% and protect them against UV light-induced oxidative stress.

When applied to the skin, serums containing Uttwiler Spätlauber apple stem cells can help promote skin cell regeneration, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and protect the skin from environmental damage.

Benefits for Your Skin and Your Practice

For individuals, incorporating microneedling and serums into your skincare routine can significantly improve the health and appearance of your skin. Regular treatments can help maintain a youthful, radiant complexion and tackle specific skin concerns like acne scarring or hyperpigmentation.

For estheticians, acupuncturists, and facialists, offering custom serums with your microneedling services can greatly enhance your practice. It allows you to provide a wider range of solutions to your clients’ skincare concerns. 

How to Incorporate Microneedling and Serums into Your Routine

To harness the power of microneedling and serums, follow these steps:

  1. Cleanse: Always start with clean, dry skin. Use a gentle cleanser to remove makeup, dirt, and excess oil.
  2. Microneedle: Using a dermaroller or a professional microneedling device, gently roll over your skin in multiple directions. Apply enough pressure to create micro-channels but not cause discomfort.
  3. Apply Serum: Immediately after microneedling, apply your serum. The serum will penetrate deeper thanks to the micro-channels, maximizing its effectiveness.
  4. Moisturize: Lastly, lock in the serum and soothe your skin with a hydrating moisturizer.

Remember, it’s crucial to patch-test new skincare products and consult a dermatologist before starting microneedling, especially if you have sensitive skin or existing skin conditions.
