CareCella's Venus Peel comes from similar principles as microneedling which is a widely used procedure by aestheticians and dermatologists. The needles puncture the epidermis which creates "micro-wounds" to stimulate the release of growth factors and induce collagen production. This in turn stimulates the skin to regenerate new skin. (Penetration of the skin of more than 100 microns is deemed as a medical procedure.) The Venus Peel penetrates the skin to a depth of 25 microns. So it is relatively safe and effective for people looking to improve their complexion, enlarged pores, reduce wrinkles and scarring due to acne. The microneedles are made of microscopic layers of silica derived from the Venus Flower Basket located in the deep sea. Nature's own nanotechnology in the works. Many people have a misconception of calling the Venus Flower Basket as a "shrimp's home" but in fact there is a symbiotic relationship between the sea sponge and the shrimp. The shrimp larvae swims into the sea sponge and as it grows it get trapped in the sponge. The bioluminescence from the sponge attracts food for the sponge and the shrimp. Some people in the far East give the Venus Flower Basket as gifts to newly weds to represent "till death do us apart". General Bio is the first company to register and utilize the Venus Flower Plant for cosmetic use. Other companies have followed suit but General Bio's high purity of the Venus Flower microneedles are unrivaled. The picture above shows the microneedles in the epidermal layer. The microneedles will not only stimulate the skin but help bring nutrients from the serum directly into the skin. Within a few days the skin will naturally expel the needles and your skin will have a more renewed look.
