What is Microdermabrasion ?
Microdermabrasion is a skin-freshening technique that helps repair facial skin that takes a beating from the sun and the effects of aging. The aesthetician uses a device like a fine sandblaster to spray tiny crystals across the face, mixing gentle abrasion with suction to remove the dead, outer layer of skin. As with other skin rejuvenation techniques, more than one treatment may be needed to reduce or remove fine wrinkles and unwanted pigmentation.
Why microdermabrasion ?
Skin reproduces itself approximately every 28 days. A newborn skin cell, or epidermal cell, pushes their way to the surface leaving death cell on the skin surface. This often can cause clogged or enlarge pores, a bumpy looking skin, and a dull appearance. In addition to regular skin reproduction the skin’s appearance is determined by its exposure to potentially harmful environmental influences such as direct sunlight and air pollution. As we age this process slows down leading to the appearance of older skin with less radiance.
Microdermabrasion works to two unique ways:
By deep exfoliations and cleansing skin pores – and thus healing existing acne.
By removing the dead skin cells – and thus preventing pimples from appearing, pimples are usually caused by dead skin cell that’s fill up skin pores.
Who is candidate microdermabrasion ?
Men and women of all skin types. Microdermabrasion is effective in reducing fine lines, enlarged pores, age spots, acne scars and improves overall skin tone so skin will have a rejuvenated look, and a refreshed feeling. Microdermabrasion stimulates the production of skin cells and collagen.
