Last Saturday the 19th September, one of our team member, Sara, experienced her first ever semi-permanent foundation session at her home with the new Inelz device! Inelz is a new start-up in the cosmetic industry that developed a brand new technology allowing anyone getting a semi-permanent makeup procedure at the comfort of her/his own home! It includes the face (foundation / contouring), lips color, eyebrow and eyeliner.
All these procedures are based on the microneedling technique. Initially born in Russian and Korea, this treatment is also called “semi-permanent BB cream”. By using Inelz products, the company promises to eliminate imperfections and uneven skin tones by microneedling semi-permanent pigments into the skin.
What does the Inelz Glow treatment involves?
The process sounds very simple. Go on Inelz website, order your Inelz microneedling Pen and a serum that matches your skin tone. Once the parcel received, follow Inelz online tutorials step-by-step and get your procedure done! Sara found the tutorials very informative and easy-to-understand.
The Inelz serum is like a BB cream full of pigments (giving the semi-permanent foundation effect) but also an explosive cocktail of cutting-edge anti-aging & skin repair peptides + growth factors. It means that with one procedure, you will not only get a foundation “tattoed’ into your skin, but also an intense skin repair effect.
To briefly explain how the procedure works: Thing microblading but for the skin! The Inelz Pen uses the famous microneedling technology. The tiny needles in the pen will push the serum –and especially the pigments contained in the serum- to enter your skin into the superficial layer. According to Sara, it is painless and very easy to do.
Sara’s final review about Inelz!
She took us through the procedure, explaining every steps: “I first removed my makeup and washed my face using a sponge. I also decided to apply a scrubbing mask before starting, as advised on the Inelz tutorial. Then, I removed some dirt on my skin by using a facial steamer to open up the pores. My skin was now ready to go ahead!”.
She continued “And now, the part you all are waiting for –the Inelz Glow treatment. I applied the n°2 shade medium serum on my face using a brush. As a first procedure, I decided to not do a contouring but I am planning do it on my next one! Then, I put the nano cartridge on my Inelz Pen and set the needle depth to 2.5 by rotating the dial on the Pen. And here we go! I started needling all over my face by doing small circular motions. It was honestly painless! No need for any numbing cream. I applied a total of 4 layers, meaning that I needled my face 4 times to get the best results possible, allowing a maximum of pigments to enter into my skin.”.
“I left the serum all night long on my face and I didn’t wash it. The next morning, I washed my face and after looking at the mirror… I was shocked about how good my skin was looking! Inelz recommends to do at least 3 sessions to see the best results, but the results of my first treatment was already so good. My pores were blurred and all my imperfections were minimized. I had some acne marks since a few months. And after the treatment, they lightened at the point that they are almost invisible now (but not totally). It was like wearing a light-coverage BB cream and definitely loved this effect. And I am still loving it! Now, I had 4 treatments done in total and I totally stopped wearing makeup except some blush and lipstick. The coverage of the Inelz Glow is almost perfect and I truly have a perfect baby skin now. What is intriguing is that it looks so natural!”
Inelz also promises a long term skin improvement. That’s something Sara noticed: “My skin texture is definitely better and I got a lifting effect. I suppose that this effect is created via microneedling, as this technique is well-known to increase collagen production.”
“An other important factor -I am sure a lot of people are wondering about- is side effects. Did I get any side effect? The only one I got was redness of my face for few hours. That’s it! This treatment is very safe and I think the only side effect one can get from it would only be short-term redness or some bleeding during the treatment.
