You’ve probably heard of microdermabrasion, but do you know what it does? Maybe you’ve seen it mentioned in magazines, on spa menus, or your skin-obsessed friend swears by it. There’s a reason this is a popular spa treatment – it really does improve your skin.
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that exfoliates and removes the superficial layer of dry, dead skin cells on your face. It doesn’t rely on harsh chemicals either. At Natural Body, we use Diamond Tome technology. This re-texturizing treatment regenerates epidermal cell structure by increasing elasticity and collagen while prepping the skin to absorb vitamins, antioxidants and plant stem cell technology to treat a wide range of imperfections.
After this treatment, your skin can look younger as it encourages new skin cell growth. Microdermabrasion can also be used to treat acne and acne scars. It even can reduce the redness that is common with rosacea.
This treatment can be beneficial for those with fine lines, uneven pigmentation, or clogged pores. It’s also great for melasma patients and individuals using retinoids such as Retin-A.
Other treatments can aggravate the skin of those with pigmentation issues. However, microdermabrasion is a gentle procedure that doesn’t cause irritation.
A microdermabrasion treatment can be done at a dermatologist’s office, a spa, or at home. While at-home treatments are convenient, they often don’t provide as thorough of an exfoliation. A professional microdermabrasion has larger motors and more power, so they can penetrate deeper into the skin for more precise exfoliation.
The frequency of your facial treatments depends on your skincare needs. Patients typically get the procedure done every 1-2 months to keep skin healthy.
If you’re nervous about receiving this treatment, don’t worry. Microdermabrasion is not painful. Your skin may be slightly red for a few hours and possible more sensitive. A calming moisturizer and sunscreen applied after treatment should keep you comfortable and protected.
If you have sensitive skin and have dermatographism, you might see hive-like lines or blotches after microdermabrasion. Taking an oral antihistamine should reduce that reaction.
This treatment is excellent to maximize the benefit of a regular topical regimen. It helps keep skin feeling smooth, helps skin coloration look more even, and speeds the clearance of white heads. While it won’t help deep wrinkles, dark brown spots, redness or growths, it can still be used as a very obvious skin rejuvenation service.
