Does your complexion need a lift? If so, microdermabrasion may just be the next beauty treatment you should add to your regular skin care regimen. A skin therapy that can quite literally work wonders for your complexion — not to mention the skin of your neck, décolleté, arms and hands — microdermabrasion is designed to refresh, rejuvenate, renew and restore your skin.
Exactly What Is Microdermabrasion?
We’re glad you asked! Microdermabrasion is a highly specialized mechanical exfoliation process that uses a special, high-tech tool to gently loosen and carefully whisk away the dead skin cells that make up the topmost layer of your skin. As these dead cells are first gently agitated and then carefully vacuumed away, so are your skin’s impurities and surface imperfections, revealing the fresh, new skin layer underneath.
Is it Magic or Science?
While many may be tempted to call it “magic,” microdermabrasion is actually based on solid scientific principles. The popular skin beautifying procedure, also known as microderm, works together with your body to reinforce your skin’s natural regeneration cycle. The main difference between nature and microderm is that this therapy speeds up cell turnover and makes it more efficient, using a high-tech skin-smoothing tool to get the job done instead of waiting for nature to take its course.
How Does Microderm Work?
Microdermabrasion works by supporting and speeding up your body’s normal task of bringing a fresh new layer of healthy skin to the surface. The procedure mobilizes the production of new skin cells in response to gentle stimulation of the skin and shedding of the old cells. The mild skin redness and minor surface swelling that are often experienced are indicators that the body’s natural powers of healing repair are being activated to enhance cell renewal.
What Kind of Results Can You Expect?
Microdermabrasion can bring a new level of smoothness to your skin, thoroughly preparing it for other skin-nourishing and hydrating treatments. In fact, microderm not only minimizes the appearance of fine lines, reduces pore size, and lessens hyper-pigmentation, but it also encourages the healing of surface blemishes. Over time and with regular treatments, it can even help heal deeper blemishes by improving the overall health of your skin. In the hands of a trained professional, such as a qualified skin care therapist or dermatologist, microdermabrasion is a completely safe and highly effective therapeutic skin care treatment that can help you minimize breakouts while bringing your skin’s hidden beauty to the surface.
