  1. Terproline focuses on supplementing collagen and elastin raw materials combined with two plant based fibroblast stimulators to synthesise Hyaluronic acid, Collagen and Fibronectine to boost the skin matrix and speed up the removal of old or damaged tissue and replace with new. I would use it as a preparatory and post treatment product. It will prepare the skin ready for treatment and reduce the risk of erythema and pigmentation. Because it improves the elasticity and extensibility of the sk
  2. At SkinMed we believe that hormonal sensitivity causes the loss of essential fatty acids from the skin and it has been shown that the oil (sebum) of acne sufferers can lose up to 90% of its linoleic acid content. Such a change causes a rapid increase in the rate the skin loses water (trans epidermal water loss - TEWL). This can be damaging to skin cells; the skin responds by increasing oil production and also increasing the rate at which it produces new epidermal cells and also increases the dep
  3. I certainly do not work for Dermapen. However, I do have some experience in the dermatology field. Performing treatments on yourself with needles longer than 0.5mm is unsafe; which is why it is illegal in England. The reason you can use this length at home is because of the minimal risk; you will not be penetrating the deeper dermal layers with this needle length, merely scratching the surface. However, there is always a risk when sticking needles in your face as per se. If you do want to do
  4. Hello boafriend, From my experience, the personal dermastamps do not penetrate the skin layers enough to stimulate the regeneration process. You would get better results going to a therapist, although this can be quite pricey! If it is something you can afford, try and find a clinic in your area that performs Dermapen treatments. The Dermapen is an electrical device, that has a high speed vibrating function that works to increase the effectiveness of the treatment by rapidly creating multiple
  5. ~Aknicare has worked wonders for me, I use the gentle cleansing gel, followed by the cream twice a day. If it flares up I use the lotion after the cleansing gel. I've used these products for years and really successfully. I think my diet has a lot to do with it as well. Like many other acne sufferers, I seem to have an intolerance to dairy, which causes outbreaks - somethign to do with the hormones in it, so I cut dairy out of my diet. I drink loads of water and take zinc and omega 3 suppleme
  6. Hi Jefrey, I would recommend Aknicare. I use the remover, the lotion, the cream and the skin roller. There's no side effects, which is why I chose to go down this route and not antibiotics and roaccutane etc. The active ingredients used in Aknicare are triethyl citrate and salicylic acid. 1) The Remover contains two special ingredients: MSM has calming and soothing properties and Triethyl Citrate (works like retinol) changes the skin conditions to help normalise skin thickening by slowing
  7. Hiya, I use a three product set called Aknicare, from SkinMed. It has a cleanser, lotion and a cream. I made the mistake of not using the cream but it dried my skin out too much. But using these products together has worked really well for me. It has really controlled the oiliness in my skin and I have so many more clear days.
  8. Hi guys, After reading some comments about the Aknicare drying out your skin I thought I would respond. This product really dried my skin out too. As my acne was so severe I initially just started to use the toner to try and alleviate my breakout and quickly. This really did dry my skin out far too much. So much so, I called the SkinMed helpline to complain (something I would never normally do). The girl on the phone was so helpful and emphatic to my skin concerns. She explained ever
