What you need to know
Microdermabrasion, performed with a diamond or crystal tip, activates the regeneration of new skin, simultaneously stimulating production of healthy younger cells, as well as increased amounts of collagen and elastin. This intensive treatment is good for anyone looking to improve the appearance of their skin and reverse the aging process. It helps to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, and acne scarring, making the skin feel firmer and smoother and giving it a more youthful and radiant glow. And it prepares the surface to absorb beneficial skin care products more readily, without the additional barrier of a superficial layer of dead cells.
Skin takes time to heal internally, and the ultimate results of microdermabrasion are seen after a recovery period of two to three days. There is often no visible sign of the treatment, but, based on individual sensitivity, some redness may occur immediately afterward, which then dissipates within a few hours.
Skin becomes more permeable once the dead skin cells have been removed, and the absorption of substances applied to the skin surface is enhanced. Infusion of antioxidants and vitamins, as well as specialized ingredients like hyaluronic acid and peptides, is improved, producing faster and more significant results.
Regular treatments will show even greater results, due to the repeated stimulation of the healing process. The procedure is most effective when done in a series of six bimonthly treatments, which can be customized with additional serums and appropriate ingredients directed toward the aging process, sun damage, or acne scarring.
A diversity of options, a high level of safety, and minimal down time make this procedure a must for achieving the ultimate in youthful-looking skin.
