Micro-Dermabrasion is one of a beauty junkies best kept secrets! It provides numerous benefits for the skin, and can actually be used to address many bothersome imperfections of the skin. It is also one of the safest skin rejuvenation procedures because it is minimally invasive with amazing results! It is a painless procedure that uses suction and crystals to gently buff away the surface layer of dead skin. This process exposes new and fresh skin and can be used on all skin types and colors. One major benefit of a micro treatment as opposed to other exfoliation methods is that it is fully customizable so it can be adjusted to any skin type or even combined with other treatments. Many people familiar with micro-dermabrasion only think it can be used for the face, but that is only one of its many uses. One condition that micro-dermabrasion may help is that pesky condition known as “chicken skin” or keratosis pliaris, this is an unsightly condition where the hair follicles on arms and legs form a build up causing a raised, bumpy rash. Or, how about that cracked and scaly dry winter skin on hands and elbows? It is also a great way to reduce the appearance of lines or sunspots on your décolleté. Did you know a micro treatment or series of treatments is perfect for restoring skin to a soft supple state?
Mico-dermabrasion treatments are gentle and take very little time, approximately 20-30 minutes. The treatments will show immediate effects and it only gets more beneficial with each additional treatment. Generally series of 4-6 treatments are recommended to be done once a week or every other week for more sensitive skin.
Some of the many benefits from micro-dermabrasion are:
-decreased appearance of scars casued by trauma, acne or chicken pox
-reduction of age spots and pigmentation imbalances
-treatment of skin damaged by long term sun exposure
-reduced appearance of stretch marks
-rid skin of unsightly blackheads
-reduces enlarged pores
-minimize fine lines, crow’s feet and wrinkles
Another great use for a micro treatment is for that annoying back-acne…a treatment will help to remove the clogged blackheads and debris that cause back-acne. This is especially good for athletes who sweat frequently. Micro-dermabrasion is also great for teenage skin, which has a tendency to not exfoliate very well and cause clogged and congested pores or blackheads.
Micro-dermabrasion is also a great way to help prevent skin problems, and to keep skin youthful and glowing. You can also use micro-derm to prep your skin for other treatments or to get the full benefits of your skincare products and routine. Sloughing away that dead top layer of skin allows for products and treatments to really penetrate into the skin, so it is important to know that your treatments are only as good as the products you follow up with! Micro-dermabrasion should really be your first step your healthy skin routine. It can be followed up with peels, laser facials or just to get your skin clear and radiant.
