Our Microdermabrasion Treatment Steps
Instead of the use of chemicals, our esthetician uses a small handheld device to exfoliate the skin’s outer layer and get rid of the top layer of dead skin cells. This is a very simple treatment that takes place in our office and requires no anesthesia or numbing agents. Immediately after the exfoliation process, a small vacuum device is used to suction away the remaining dead skin cells. After the process is complete, your body will think of the treatment as an attack on the skin. The skin cells that were removed from your body were timeworn and no longer full of life. In response to this treatment, the body wants to immediately replace the old skin cells with healthy fresh ones—therefore results are often immediate!
When it comes to enhancing your skin’s radiance and addressing specific skincare concerns, understanding the key distinctions between microdermabrasion and facials can be pivotal. These two procedures, while both valuable components of a comprehensive skincare regimen, cater to distinct skincare needs.
Microdermabrasion: Rejuvenating the Outer Layers
Microdermabrasion, is an advanced yet non-invasive cosmetic procedure, that uses exfoliation and skin renewal. Our medspa uses specialized equipment that exfoliates the outermost layer of your skin that gently removes dead skin cells and stimulates collagen production. Microderm treatments are particularly effective for combating fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, sun damage, and uneven skin texture. The precision of this treatment ensures that it targets specific areas of concern with remarkable accuracy.
Facials: Holistic Skin Nourishment
In contrast, facials are holistic skincare rituals that encompass a range of rejuvenating techniques, customized to cater to your unique skin needs. They encompass cleansing, steaming, exfoliation, extractions (if necessary), a relaxing facial massage, and the application of specialized masks and serums. Facials offer a broader spectrum of benefits, from promoting relaxation to improving overall skin health.
Facials are versatile and adaptable, making them suitable for various skin types and sensitivities. These treatments not only deliver immediate benefits, such as enhanced hydration and a refreshed appearance, but they also contribute to long-term skin health when incorporated into a regular skincare routine. Whether your goal is to combat acne, reduce the signs of aging, or simply maintain a radiant complexion, facials can be tailored to meet your specific skincare objectives.
Frequency of Microdermabrasion Sessions
The striking feature of microdermabrasion is its immediate and visible impact on your skin’s texture and tone. While a single session can yield remarkable results, achieving the best outcome may require a series of strategically spaced treatments. Although microdermabrasion may lead to temporary redness and sensitivity, its transformative effects make it the preferred choice for individuals seeking substantial improvements in their skin’s appearance and their own self-assurance.
