Microdermabrasion is a gentle exfoliation method that is efficient in removing the older, dead skin cells at the top of the epidermis and better than an ordinary manual scrub.
Exfoliation not only removes the dull, dead skin, on the surface, but stimulates the production of new, young, and plump skin cells, increasing cell turnover, which results in a fresher, smoother surface of skin. This is one of the “secrets” for younger looking skin.
How Does Microdermabrasion Work?
At Skin and Beauty Center, our estheticians use a machine with “diamond tips”. The device is gently glided across the skin, providing a light sanding of the topmost layer of skin. This stimulates the body's natural healing process, helping to replace damaged and old skin cells with newer cells as well as promoting collagen production for more youthful, plump skin.
The microdermabrasion device also features an attached tube which vacuums up the dead skin as it goes, leaving your skin clean and prepped for any additional treatments done in combination with microdermabrasion, such as a restorative and hydrating facial.
Does Microdermabrasion Work for All Skin Types?
The diamond-tip microdermabrasion machine used at Skin and Beauty Center is gentler on skin, leaving a slight, healthy pink glow, but not red, irritated skin. The procedure isn't painful and there's no downtime. You can complete your microdermabrasion treatment during a lunch break and get right back to your daily life.
However, if you have rosacea, or ultra sensitive skin, even this gentle microdermabrasion may be too abrasive. Consult with your dermatologist to determine if microdermabrasion is a good option for you.
When Will I See Results?
Like many other non-invasive cosmetic treatments, microdermabrasion results are best when done as a series of treatments. To start we recommend a series of 3 or more treatments. One treatment may be too subtle to see the difference, but over time, at regular intervals, you will see texture and discoloration improve. Of course individual results may vary from person to person.
