Microdermabrasion is a skin resurfacing treatment that utilizes mechanical exfoliation with the use of a diamond tipped wand along, with adjustable suction to gently abrade away the outermost layers of dead skin cells. This procedure can be tailored to suit skin needs with the option to choose from different levels of abrasion as well as varied suction levels.
Convenience is one of the most popular benefits of microdermabrasion, as it is a quick, painless and non-invasive alternate to deeper resurfacing treatments such as chemical peels and micro-needling. Because microdermabrasion only treats the outer most top layer of the epidermis there is no downtime. Minor pinkness, sensitivity and tightness is typical and usually subsides in less than 24 hours after treatment. The use of a quality SPF is always recommended post procedure to protect the new delicate skin.
Improvements in the overall texture and tone of the skin can be noticed after just one treatment, as well as an increased product absorption resulting in less product waste, and improved penetration means better results.
For continued improvements, monthly maintenance treatments are recommended for treatment of fine lines, enlarged pores and uneven skin tone such as Hyperpigmentation and minor acne scarring. Regular microdermabrasion treatments help to stimulate collagen production, improve circulation and enhance lymph flow to promote internal skin health.
