If your skin is looking dull these days, it may be due to a build-up of dead skin cells and debris on the surface. One of the best ways to battle the “blah” and have your skin looking fresh and new is a microdermabrasion treatment. It may sound intimidating at first, but microdermabrasion is a non-invasive treatment that helps rejuvenate the skin. If you want a gorgeous glow and skin that feels like new, then microdermabrasion is just the treatment for you.
Got more questions? Still not sure about microdermabrasion? If you’re still on the fence, here are some benefits that microdermabrasion can provide for you!
What is Microdermabrasion?
Below the outer layer of the skin is a new, untouched layer that looks stunning when it’s shown to the world. Microdermabrasion is an exfoliating process that gently removes the outer layer of skin, where all the dead skin cells and build-up live. This process promotes cell turnover and reveals the smoother, softer skin that lies just beneath the surface. Your esthetician will use a microdermabrasion tool that rubs fine crystals across the skin. The crystals exfoliate and remove the dead skin cells on the surface. The process doesn’t use needles or chemical exfoliants and has almost instant results. Your esthetician will then apply moisturizer to battle any potential redness or puffiness that may occur on more sensitive skin. This treatment is recommended for all skin types and has almost immediate results.
What are the Results?
When going in for a microdermabrasion treatment, the desired result is rejuvenated skin. Since it removes dead skin from the face, it can also prep the skin to better absorb moisturizers and serums for longer-lasting results. This treatment is a great option for anyone that is looking for the following results:
- The removal of dull skin
- Improvement of light scarring
- Treating areas of hyperpigmentation
- Improvement of sun damage
- Reduction of the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
What are the Benefits?
There are many benefits of microdermabrasion, which is why it is a favorite treatment amongst many clients. Since the results are immediate, there is no wait time between the treatment and your daily life, so your skin can look bright whenever you want. The treatment has a multiplying effect, so even though one treatment looks great, the benefits become longer-lasting after multiple visits. The exfoliating process helps promote collagen production in the skin, which gives it that youthful and bouncy look and feel. It also preps the skin to better absorb other skincare products, which your esthetician can recommend for continual at-home care. The treatment minimizes signs of aging and any sun damage you may have from the summer. These youthful effects can last up to weeks and, with continuous treatments, can keep your skin looking smooth and vibrant for months to come.
