Aloe Vera Gel is extracted from Fresh cut leaves of Aloe Vera (Barbadensis Leaves). The ancient Egyptians had nicknamed this plant as “the plant of eternity” because of its healing and beautifying benefits.
They would use the gel extracted from the aloe vera plants to soothe skin dryness, sunburns, and in embalming rituals. They believed the purifying properties of aloe vera gel would magnify and prolong beauty.
Throughout history, other cultures and communities around the world have used aloe vera gel for its various benefits. The Indians, Chinese, and Middle Eastern communities have been using aloe vera gel to fade the appearance of scars,calm skin inflammation, and enhance the overall health of the skin and hair for centuries. Today, aloe vera gel is an active ingredient in many Skincare and Hair Care.
The Aloe Vera plant is native to tropical regions of Africa, but its cultivation has now been spread all over the world. It creates a gel which is clear, odorless, and a viscous solution that is composed of 90% Water. It also contains vitamins, minerals, amino acids, proteins, healthy fatty acids, and enzymes which all help with moisturizing
Aloe vera exhibits hydrating, purifying, soothing, and nourishing properties that improves skin’s health in various ways. Dermadoc Aloe Vera Gel contains 100% fresh aloe vera gel with no added Water, Color, Fragrance, or Alcohol. Here are some benefits of using aloe vera gel for your skin’s health:
SOOTHES SKIN IRRITATION
Itchy skin is very uncomfortable and irritating for everybody. But scratching the skin leads to redness, rashes, and inflammation which is a big problem.
Skin itchiness can occur in response to many reasons, such as dryness, medications, environmental toxins, insect bites, and infections. Dermadoc Aloe vera Gel contains polysaccharides in its composition, which help to hydrate and soothe skin.
Applying Aloe Vera Gel helps to comfort skin irritation, itchiness, and keeps skin Hydrated and Healthy. Polysaccharides promote water retention in the skin and protect it against environmental toxins and irritants that cause itchiness.
MOISTURIZES THE SKIN
Anyone who suffers from dry skin knows that moisturizing is an important factor for healthy and strongskin.
The skin’s outer layer called epidermis is comprised of a fine film of lipids and water. The lipids and water keep the skin moisturized, smooth and soft. This film also protects the skin from UV rays, toxins, free radicals, and bacteria. When the epidermis receives insufficient hydration, it becomes dry, which leads to irritation, cracks, and flaky patches on the skin.
Aloe vera gel has vitamins A, B, C, D, and E that are known to boost skin’s moisture levels, keeping it fresh, soft, and smooth. Furthermore, aloe vera gel contains minerals such as magnesium, potassium, and zinc that provide hydration to the skin and soothe dryness.
HELPS FADE THE DARK SPOTS
Dark spots, blemishes, and discoloration can appear anywhere on the skin because of a variety of reasons. Regular exposure to UV rays, acne, hyperpigmentation, environmental damage, aging, and hormonal changes are among the common reasons for scarring and dark spots.
Aloe vera gel has antioxidant properties that cleanse, purify, and clarify the skin’s texture. Its purifying properties help lighten the appearance of dark spots and blemishes. It protects the skin against germs and bacteria that cause acne breakouts. Moreover, aloe vera gel contains a compound named aloe Sin in its composition that is known to reduce the overproduction of melanin. When the skin produces more melanin, it gives darker color to acne scars, spots, and patches on the skin, making them more noticeable than surrounding areas.
PROVIDES SKIN WITH EVERYTHING YOU NEED
Healthy and youthful-looking skin requires a sufficient amount of moisture. Lack of moisturization causes dryness on the skin’s surface, making it appear dull, worn out, and unhealthy. Moreover, as we get older, the production of collagen and elastin fibers decreases, causing the skin to lose elasticity, firmness, and youthful glow.
Aloe vera gel promotes skin’s suppleness and elasticity with its hydrating properties. It helps the skin retain moisture and smoothest out the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Furthermore, aloe vera gel has Vitamin C which is known to boost collagen production. In addition, due to the presence of zinc oxide in its composition, aloe vera gel tightens skin pores and keeps it looking youthful and refreshed.
SOOTHES ACNE-PRONE SKIN
Acne develops when the buildup of dirt, bacteria, dead skin cells and excess oils clog skin pores. The clogging causes inflammation and redness in skin pores, which leads to acne breakouts. Aloe vera gel has antioxidant properties that exfoliate the skin, drawing out dirt and bacteria which clog skin pores. Moreover, its purifying properties cleanse the skin’s surface, keeping it healthy and clean. In addition, aloe vera gel contains salicylic acid, which helps shed dead skin cells from the skin’s outer layer. It is also known to regulate the sebum secretions, preventing the skin from future breakouts.
Neuramis, an injectable facial filler, is used by cosmetic, dermatological, and plastic surgeons to soften deep folds and reduce wrinkles in the faces of patients. Neuramis® is manufactured using SHAPE technology. Its substance is largely acid, a substance normally found in the skin, muscles, and tendons of mammals. Attained CE mark, Neuramis can be used for removing wrinkles and folds and also used as a facial augmentation agent. Neuramis acts like an inflated cushion to support facial structures and tissues that may have lost volume or elasticity due to normal aging. Because it consists of acid, Neuramis® also brings water to the surface of skin to keep it looking fresh and supple.
Needle-free treatments are filling up the ads. The trend of needle-free, and painless, treatments are on the bull run. What is it about, how it works, and how it differs from good old dermal fillers?
To understand this technique, we must first understand why it even exists, and how it was invented.
Needle-free drug administration was patented for diabetes patients. Constant need for injections lead to the development of the device that we nowadays call – HYALURON PEN.
Science behind this miracle invention from the late 70s is pretty simple. It works under the principles of high pressure applied to the small surface, creating a high force that penetrates skin epidermis layer and injects injectables into the dermis layer of the skin.
This way, injecting is considered as non-invasive but still effective. But is it effective as regular old-fashioned syringes with needles?
Removing the needle from the equation of injecting drugs and other injectables into the skin has many benefits to it. First and the most obvious is it’s non-invasive nature. Second but also important, this treatment is almost fear-free.
Many people suffer from a severe fear of needles. In the end, nobody likes being stabbed with a needle, especially not in the face.
So, fear-free, pain-free alternative miracle? Or maybe not?
Definitely hyaluron pen technique has its pros and cons. Let’s review a few of them:
Removes fear from needles
It is mostly painless
It doesn’t look scary
There is short or even no recovery time from the treatment
It is quick, and effects are visible immediately
Effects definitely have a shorter retention period than with normal dermal fillers (with a needle)
It is still too expensive considering shorter lasting results
It is completely legal to be performed by anyone, so many so-called “experts” may ruin your face (good thing is that results wear off pretty quickly so you won’t be having that weird look on your face forever)
But let’s look at a bright side of it. It is good, it is trendy, it gives results, and it is easily done. So, for me it’s still a miracle, considering that innovations in the beauty industry were almost none for a long period of time. And they were always coming with a high price tag, so adoptability rates were sluggishly show.
No, at least not anytime soon. Doctors will still have their jobs doing injection fillers, but so many others will have their chance to become lip augmentation artists and anti-aging experts.
Dermal fillers still hold the biggest chunk of face augmentation industry, and for some time it will be like that. The hyaluron pen is definitely on its bull run and will not slow anytime soon (if not stopped by some lobby group of government payroll dudes), and it will definitely stay for some foreseeable future.
My opinion is that many hyaluron pen therapists expect their clients will pay the same price for hyaluron pen treatment as they would do for dermal fillers. First of all, dermal fillers are injected into a subcutaneous tissue and last longer. Hyaluron pen is injecting into dermis and it has some benefits because of that.
First, when injected into dermis layer, hyaluronic acid boosts natural production of our naturally stored hyaluronic acid. So maybe first treatment results will not be as long lasting, but expect that this process will make retention rates longer for each new treatment undertaken.
To cut the long story short, dermal fillers will stay as well. This treatment will always have better precision and longer lasting results, but it will always be much more expensive, painful and you will never have the opportunity to go to a wedding after you did fillers, at least not for next few days (this is definitely something you can do after the hyaluron pen treatment)
