Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive exfoliating facial treatment using sand designed to gently exfoliate, removing the outer layer of dead skin, leaving your face firmer and smoother.
How does it work?
The diamond-tip handpiece is designed to both gently exfoliate dead cells in your skin and as it loosens these dead cells it will eliminate them immediately. The esthetician moves the diamond microdermabrasion wand methodically in strokes across the face that can feel scratchy but not painful.
What are the benefits?
- Evens out skin texture
- Improves complexion.
- Reduces discoloration and age spots.
- Improves acne and acne scarring.
- Unclogs pores and reduces pore size.
- Fine lines and wrinkles
What to expect the day of treatment?
During the treatment you will feel the abrasive texture and suction from the wand as it passes over the skin, but because it's only working on the very surface of the skin it doesn't hurt. People often describe the sensation as being massaged with powerful facial scrub.
How many treatments are recommended?
The number of treatments needed will vary from four to six sessions depending on the condition being treated and the skin type. The sessions should be 4 weeks apart and maintenance treatments every 8-12 weeks.
When to expect results?
Even after the first treatment, you will notice your skin looks and feels softer and smoother. Improvement is noted after each treatment with maximal benefit noted after completion of series of treatments-softening of fine lines and sunspots or age spots.
Can other treatments be combined?
Yes. In fact, the combination of chemical peels with microdermabrasion will offer the best results.
