Microdermabrasion may sound intimidating at first, but it is actually a safe, simple and painless process that works on all skin types.
It used to be a well kept Hollywood secret but has now become mainstream, many people even find it enjoyable, relaxing and luxurious experience. It has been described as a natural facelift, and it has become more and more popular with women as well as men.
So what should you expect?
A specialist will expertly, and gently, rub tiny exfoliating crystals to remove the thin layer of dead skin cells, on the outermost layer of skin. This will help diminish skin imperfections, brighten your skin tone, and give you softer looking and feeling skin by revealing the younger, newer skin cells underneath.
What can microdermabrasion help with?
- dull skin, brown spots, age spots and sun damage
- reduce the appearance of stretch marks and scars
- reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- acne, and the scars left behind by acne
- cleaning out clogged pores and removing blackheads
After a microdermabrasion treatment, your moisturizers and acne creams will be more absorbable and effective. You may also see a decrease in acne from having cleaned all the impurities from your pores.
Repeated microdermabrasion treatments can remove more serious imperfections over time, as well as encourage collagen and elastin growth, which will keep your skin tight and firm.
A few conditions are not compatible with microdermabrasion, like eczema for example, but a specialist can help you figure out if you are a suitable candidate.
