What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion services available. If the texture and appearance of your skin is bothersome, Microdermabrasion at your favorite spa is a great alternative to helping you get the skin you desire.
What is Microdermabrasion?
One of the simplest ways to remove unsightly issues from your skin, microdermabrasion is a non-invasive and painless procedure that is performed at your favorite spa. Microdermabrasion is similar to exfoliation that you can perform at home, except it is performed with a high tech machine that can remove the top layer of your skin, which is the layer that typically contains the greatest amount of dead cells. There are no chemicals or surgical procedures involved, microdermabrasion done by a licensed esthetician simply uses aluminum oxide crystals that scrub your skin, leaving you with a new, shiny layer of skin. If you wish to expose a new, fresh layer of skin that will give you a renewed glow, then explore the benefits of microdermabrasion.
How is Microdermabrasion Performed?
Considered the lunch time treatment, microdermabrasion is a simple procedure that women can literally have done at their favorite spa on their lunch hour from work! Imagine leaving work one minute and returning an hour later with fresh, glowing skin! The process is simple. The esthetician first cleans the skin with a special cleansing gel to rid your skin of any dirt. After your skin is perfectly clean, the microdermabrasion can begin. With the use of a small hand-held tool, an esthetician sprays aluminum oxide crystals onto your face to make a rough surface that is similar to the feeling you get when you exfoliate your skin at home. After applying the crystals to your entire face, the small hand-held device is used to vacuum the crystals off. The device needs to be held at a precise angle to get all of the dead skin cells off of your face as well as the aluminum oxide crystals. This procedure will be performed to your entire face, not just in problem areas so that you are left with an even, gorgeous layer of new skin. The entire process can take less than an hour and there is no recovery time required, leaving you able to return to normal activity right away. You won’t feel any pain or discomfort after the procedure, the only minor after affect might be slightly pink skin as a result of the procedure.
Will I See Results Immediately?
While some women see some improvement after the first procedure, with wrinkles, fine lines and age spots beginning to diminish, it is typically recommended to have at least 6 treatments at once a week to get the best results with gorgeous, glowing, even skin being your end result.
How is Microdermabrasion Different from Dermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is painless and simple, allowing women to return to normal activity right away. Dermabrasion on the other hand involves anesthetic and requires a longer recovery with patients experiencing sensitive skin that is red and swollen.
Is Microdermabrasion Right for me?
If you suffer from fine lines, wrinkles, acne, large pores and uneven skin tone then you are a good candidate for microdermabrasion. As an added benefit from having microdermabrasion performed, you will experience greater collagen production and better elasticity of the skin. What you are left with is smooth, shiny, gorgeous skin that is tighter and wrinkle free. You’ll have a gorgeous new you!
