Microdermabrasion is a Gentle Treatment with Many Benefits
Has winter left your skin feeling dry and dull?
Microdermabrasion may sound daunting, but it is actually a very gentle facial treatment created in Italy in 1985, which leaves you with radiant and healthy looking skin. In the treatment, a concentration of micronized crystals is used to softly remove the dead cells from the outer layer of skin, ridding you of your dull and unhealthy appearance along with any fine lines, wrinkles, or brown spots! Microdermabrasion is also helpful in removing acne whiteheads and blackheads, as well as minimizing the size of pores. Yet another added benefit is that is increases blood flow to the skin, which promotes cell production and healing. The difference between this procedure and chemical peels, is that the chemical peels use fruit acids for the removal of the dead skin cells.
It is important to use a rich moisturizer after a Microdermabrasion treatment, as it tends to reduce the hydration of the skin. Your skin will also be more sensitive to sunlight, so make sure to wear sunscreen when going outdoors.
Having your treatment done by a skilled technician is extremely important, because a treatment that is done too aggressively can cause pinpoint bleeding. Those with conditions such as scars, stretch marks, or deep wrinkles may see better success with alternative skin rejuvenation procedures.
