Microdermabrasion is one of those cosmetic procedures that most people have heard of, but don’t really know much about. Even if your skin-obsessed friend swears by it, or you’ve seen it listed on spa menus, the procedure is still one of those to be explained.
Microdermabrasion is a non-chemical non-invasive procedure that exfoliates and removes the superficial layer of dry, dead skin cells and reveals a younger, healthier-looking skin.
Microdermabrasion machines can buff and polish the skin using a stream of fine crystals or a diamond tip. Some systems have suction to increase blood and lymphatic circulation, aids in removal of black heads and vacuum loose skin cells from the face. Once the dead skin is removed and circulation is stimulated, active ingredients will penetrate the skin very efficiently.
Microdermabrasion helps to thicken your collagen, which results in a younger looking complexion. Collagen is a protein in your skin that’s abundant when you’re a child and makes skin appear taut and smooth. Collagen production declines as we age, resulting in looser, uneven skin.
Microdermabrasion is a safe, controlled treatment that intensely exfoliates and resurfaces the skin. It is the leading skincare treatment in Europe.
Microdermabrasion sounds vaguely painful, but it’s actually one of the gentlest, fastest, non-invasive anti-aging treatments around today.
Microdermabrasion can be done as a treatment on its own or in combination with a facial.
