A VERY FAMOUS TREATMENT TO SMOOTH, POLISH AND REJUVENATE YOUR SKIN
WHY MICRODERMABRASION ?
The treatment is non-surgical and pain free. It is an outstanding treatment for rejuvenating your skin especially if you are new to facial treatments.
Mechanical exfoliation also triggers and stimulates the collagen production and promotes the overall growth of new healthy cells for a major improvement of your skin’s health and well being.
WHAT HAPPENS IN A TREATMENT?
Your skin will first of all be cleansed and prepared with a light acid or enzyme solution. We then will follow with the microdermabrasion wand smoothly over your skin. The intensity of the machine and your skin is constantly monitored and deliberate. You will feel it lighter in some areas and a bit more in others. A customized balancing and hydrating mask and, treatment serums are applied following. The entire process will last 45 minutes.
WHAT WILL MICRODERMABRASION DO FOR MY SKIN?
Overall, microdermabrasion will reduce the appearance of wrinkles, remove acne scars, clear up blackheads, minimize the size of the pores, reduce sun damage, and even out the skin tone. Microdermabrasion also helps to boost collagen production to provide firming and toning to the complexion.
IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME AFTER A TREATMENT?
Microdermabrasion is a safe and gentle procedure with no downtime. The client will need to protect his or her skin with moisturizer and sun block for 48 hours after the treatment and may experience mild redness and sloughing/peeling. However, the client can return to work immediately, which is why many clients prefer to have microdermabrasion treatments on their lunch breaks since there is no downtime.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED?
When it comes to microdermabrasion, it is important to have a series of microdermabrasion services, 3 to 6 are recommended for the best results. These initial 3 to 6 treatments can be spaced one to two weeks apart, and from that point, the client can continue to receive one treatment on a monthly basis for the best maintenance.
HOW DOES A MICRODERMABRASION TREATMENT WORK ON THE SKIN?
The thickness of the epidermis is increased because new cells are being produced more rapidly and the cells themselves are larger and healthier. The cells of the lower layers of the epidermis are knitted tighter in a more consistent “basket weave” configuration, instead of a haphazard arrangement. The barrier function of the epidermis is disrupted for the first 24 to 48 hours causing the skin to be drier than usual. During the cell reproduction of cells the fibroblasts that make up the collagen fibers are increased and are thicker more tightly packed and more organized. The number of elastin fibers also increased and they are orientated vertically instead of horizontally giving the dermal layer more “spring”.
Most clients report their skin seems softer, tighter, smoother and younger looking. You will be sent home with post care instructions if needed. You will refrain from all retinol and Alpha hydroxyl acid containing products for 24 hours. Your skin most likely will feel a little drier for approximately 48 hours after the treatment. It is important to recognize this, and moisturize appropriately. Your skin has less dead skin, and products will now effectively penetrate!
