While plastic surgery procedures such as face lifts and neck lifts are designed to reduce the signs of aging, a number of individuals would prefer a less invasive approach to skin rejuvenation. Microdermabrasion is often the perfect non-surgical alternative for those who want to achieve a more youthful and vibrant appearance.
- Microdermabrasion Overview
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive treatment that uses tiny minerals applied on to a buffer to gently buff away the outer layer of skin. Microdermabrasion treatments are a great way to clean clogged pores, remove dead skin cells, and provide you with a more youthful, refreshed appearance. This treatment may be right for you if you are suffering from age spots, black heads, acne, recessed acne or trauma scars, stretch marks, fine lines and wrinkles, or hyperpigmentation.
- Treatment Process
After cleansing and preparing your skin, your med spa specialist will use a hand-held device to stream tiny Hungarian Crystals across your skin. A vacuum attachment is used at the same time to remove the exfoliating crystals and any dead cells from your skin. In addition to removing dead skin cells and excess crystals, this suction also works to stimulate your body’s natural healing process, developing new skin cells and boosting collagen production to create more youthful-looking skin.
- Microdermabrasion Recovery
Recovery for microdermabrasion is short, and the end results are immediate. Your skin may be slightly red or swollen for the first few hours immediately following your procedure. It is also normal for your skin to be relatively flaky and dry for several days as your body heals. It is crucial to wear sunscreen and avoid direct sun exposure after your procedure, as your new skin will be more susceptible to sensitivedamage.
