The new year, new you look is starting to wear thin now that 2018 is halfway over. If you are looking for a way to kick-start the second half of your year with a summer-fresh face, consider a microdermabrasion skin treatment. Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure that deeply exfoliates your skin and removes the top layer of dry, dead skin cells. The end result is a brighter complexion, more even skin tone, and softer skin texture.
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive and non-painful procedure that uses crystals or diamonds to gently abrade the thick and uneven outer layer of skin and remove it. The treatment thickens collagen (a protein that gives skin a smooth, firm appearance) and stimulates blood flow to the skin cells on your face, improving the texture and elasticity of your skin. Microdermabrasion is safe for all skin types and tones, and while DIY kits are available for at-home use, better results are achieved through treatment at a dermatologist office or spa, which stock advanced tools to deeply exfoliate your skin.
Microdermabrasion is most effective for the following conditions:
- Areas of skin discoloration and hyperpigmentation (areas of darker skin);
- Melasma – a condition which causes gray or brown patches to appear on the face;
- Uneven skin tone;
- Dull complexion;
- Age spots;
- Fine lines and thin wrinkles;
- Stretch marks;
- Sun damaged skin;
- Clogged and enlarged pores;
- Whiteheads, blackheads, and acne; and
- Acne scars.
Microdermabrasion works best when it complements a good topical skin care routine – not supplements it. The treatment will help skin care products absorb into your skin more quickly and it will aid makeup in gliding on more smoothly. Overall, microdermabrasion will enhance your skin’s smoothness, balance out your skin’s pigmentation, and give your face a brighter glow. However, it will not help deep wrinkles, redness, dark spots, or skin growths. After the procedure, your skin may be red and sensitive for a few hours. Be sure to apply a soothing moisturizer to rehydrate dry skin cells.
