What Is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a superficial, non-invasive skin treatment that exfoliates and removes skin cells from the upper layers of the skin. The treatment refreshes and clears your skin, and can help to open clogged pores, one of the first steps in acne formation.
There are three great benefits of microdermabrasion, making it easy to see why it’s a popular choice for many people:
- If you have damaged skin from sun exposure or through the aging process, microdermabrasion may improve its function and appearance by promoting the production of new skin cells.
- Microdermabrasion can help increase penetration of skincare products by as much as 50 percent.
- The treatment makes your skin look and feel healthy and rejuvenated, and applying makeup will be much more pleasant. Your skin will be visibly smoother and more even-toned.
How Microdermabrasion Works
If you’re worried about having pain during treatment or having to take time off work following your microdermabrasion treatment, fear not.
Microdermabrasion is a great choice for people who want to dramatically change the appearance of their skin, but do not want an invasive procedure.
Diamond microdermabrasion treatments are comfortable, require no downtime and are suitable for all skin types at any time of year. The treatment uses a diamond tip wand with suction to mechanically remove old, weak skin and reveal the fresh, smooth, younger-looking skin underneath.
Regular treatments are recommended as part of ongoing skin maintenance and are often combined with chemical peels or laser genesis.
