Previously i have mentioned about my breakout on my face as well as scaring and holes from previous acne . for the longest time ever i was looking to treat it and i am that kind of person that wants things done naturally .
So i came across something called the dermaroller about a year and started doing research regarding this , then i further came across the Dermapen and i realized that this is the newer version to the dermaroller . after months and ends of research i finally decided to start treatment so i contacted my nearest Aesthetic and booked myself and appointment .
What is a DERMAPEN :
The Dermapen is a revolutionary micro-needling device which aims to tighten, lift and rejuvenate skin. The Dermapen can visibly improve the appearance of :
- fine lines
- surgical, acne and trauma scars
- stretch marks

My consult :
My first treatment started off by checking my skin , how deep the holes are and what my breakout are caused by .
First Treatment :
the first thing is making sure your face is clean the second step is the numbing process , the application of the numbing cream which stays on for approximately 15 to 20 minutes .
The actually treatment then starts the dermapen comes with micro needles that needs to be changed at every treatment . the micro needling process is about 10 to 15 minutes .
After the Needling :
my skin was totally red as well as swollen .
you do get a small burning sensation , nothing that painful but it does feel weird when you wash your face .
the healing process isn’t a long 1 .
Day 1 : skin was still red and swollen , no pain
Day 2 : skin back to normal with some shedding or peeling of skin
Day 3 : back to normal
I have been for 5 treatments already but i haven’t seen a major change in my skin . there has been a change in the sense that the pore are gone my skin looks and feels softer as well as i find the holes are getting less visible . But i still have pimples shooting out every now and then which i thought would stop .
I see a difference in coverage when i apply foundation .
I would suggest if you have very old holes and scaring then maybe you should incorporate laser faxel as well .
If you waiting to see results straight away this treatment isn’t for you , you will only see a small change each month because this is a natural process , remember what the dermapen is doing is its rupturing your skin for the collagen to activate and start repairing your skin by itself .
If you are interested check out CROSBY AESTHETICS and ask for DR MOAAZA
If you are in the Crosby Area i highly recommend Dr Moaaza give her a shout
Around R1200 to R1400 a treatment
Heres some pictures from my previous visits :
I will keep updating as my skin progresses .
In today time the wearing of wearing Hijab (Abayas) have become to expensive. we have come to that stage where we don’t want people to see that we have been repeating our cloths so often . So what i have been doing especially for weekdays and casual weekend running out to the malls for random outings i have started making the most plainness of abayas and stylying them with other garments , to make it look and seem like a different abaya all the time . In this way i dont have to be spending tons on a Abaya .

ASALAAM-WA-LAIKUM LADIES ,
for those of you who have met me in this past few months , has all asked the same question ‘ WHY HAVE YOU STOPPED BLOGGING ? ‘ so here’s the thing, i have been going through such bad breakout on my face which made me feel less confident about myself , i have been down and about each day but now to be honest i am growing out of it and accepting it . furthermore i have been having problems with computers as well as cameras and basically whole lot of melt downs and crash downs .
This made ME realize that we are all human and Allah has made us all beautiful in our own way, i decided i am going to careless about what people think and carrying doing what i love to do most .
So to be honest what inspired me to do this post is the OH SO SWEET STRAWBERRY ladies who invited me to there event as a VIP guest . I met such beautiful , inspiring lovely ladies.I had ladies coming up to be after my LIVE hijab tutorial telling me how good i am , i felt so good knowing that there are people out there who appreciates my work and efforts .
Today i wanted to introduce to you LEFAI BY FAAIZA . I have met this beautiful soul for the first time at the OH SO SWEET STRAWBERRY HIGHTEA where i got the opportunity to do a live hijabi tutorial with the lefai scarf . i must say when at first i looked at the scarf from the packaging i had no idea how beautiful this scarf really was , hence i decided to to a video tutorial showing you guys exactly what i mean
