Though common for everyone, stretch marks can be pretty frustrating. Known as Striae in the scientific world, they form when the skin expands or shrinks quickly. This can happen due to medications, cortisone levels, rapid weight gain or loss, and most commonly after pregnancy. When the skin goes through this process collagen and elastin levels are damaged. An irritating symptom of stretch marks is the inability to magically undo them.
Like everything else, a variety of different creams, serums, and treatments claim to have the solution. However, many diminish stretch marks but never fully eliminate them. That’s where microneedling comes in. Known for its collagen-producing effects, microneedling can be an effective way to heal your skin. When you microneedle you stimulate the body’s rebuilding process. Through this regeneration collagen and elastin increases and works over time to replenish your skin and reduce stretch marks.
Using my Illuma pen (Use Code: BBGlow to save $100) ensures I am going to get deep quickly with a 12 pin head. although, using a Dr Pen (Use Code: Kaos12) works just as well on a 1.5 setting with a 12 pin. As long as you are getting collagen induction that is what we are trying to achieve.
Staying on top of my vitamin game is crucial right now, as I seem to feel a little more tired than usual.

Since I was concentrating on my Microneedling treatments I kept my skincare light but effective! Acelolgy has some amazing masks, today I used the Aceology brighten mask, it’s blue. I did a quick swipe with Kalvuu Pure face wipes, toned with Saturday skin Toner, used the DHC Astaxanthin Collagen serum, Charlottle Tilbury Wonder glow, then Cay Skin Spf 55, and lastly goop glow body. And just like that I was ready to go! Enjoy the Vid below. xo- Kim
