Microdermabrasion is the use of tiny crystals on the tip of a wand-like tool that is massaged over the skin in order to produce the desired exfoliation effect. Microdermabrasion can be performed on any skin type and is effective at improving the skin tone and reducing the visibility of brown spots (like sun spots, age spots, and hyperpigmentation caused by hormonal changes) – all with no down time.
A microdermabrasion facial is a multi-step process designed to cleanse the skin while enhancing the benefits of a traditional facial.
After Care and Results
Following your microdermabrasion facial, your esthetician will provide you with continuing care instructions and recommendations of products that are best to use for your skin type and concerns. Following a microdermabrasion facial, you can expect your skin to be more tender and possibly pinkish in tone for those with lighter skin. This should pass within a day and is only the new layer of skin being exposed for the first time to the elements. There is no recovery downtime required and you can resume normal activity following treatment; however, sunscreen should be applied before going outside and time in the sun should be limited to allow time for your fresh new skin to adjust.
Following your microdermabrasion facial, you can expect visible results such as:
- Brighter and more even skin tone
- Reduced visibility of light to mild acne scaring
- Repair from sun damage
- Dark spots reduced or eliminated
- Smoother skin texture
- Reduced breakouts
