People with fine facial lines or wrinkles, age spots, sun damage, uneven pigmentation, clogged pores, skin texture problems, or minor scars are great candidates for microdermabrasion. If you suffer from rosacea or acne, you may also benefit from microdermabrasion treatments. The gentle spray of microcrystals can eliminate or improve skin imperfections and conditions by removing the upper layer of dead and damaged skin cells to reveal new, fresh skin.
During a microdermabrasion treatment, the beautician directs a stream of tiny (“micro”) aluminum oxide crystals through a hand piece that is placed against your skin. These dermabrasion crystals exfoliate the skin, and an effective suction immediately removes the skin debris and crystals.
Also the diamond head can be used for this treatment which is very popular compare to crystals.
Microdermabrasion stimulates the production of firmer, thicker, healthier skin layers. Several treatments are necessary because they encourage the production of a new layer of skin cells that contains higher levels of collagen and elastin.
Is it painful?
The microdermabrasion procedure exfoliates dead cells from the skin’s surface. While it is not painful, the treatment can cause a slight warming sensation as the abrasive microdermabrasion crystals gently slough away old and damaged layers of skin. Some people say that it feels just like a pleasant facial massage. Our experienced beauticians will be able to suggest a facial cream or lotion that is best suited for your skin type.
Microdermabrasion is often called a “lunch hour” treatment because it’s a quick procedure that can be performed at our salon during your lunch hour with little or no discomfort or downtime.
