You have probably heard about microdermabrasion due to its rise in popularity in recent years. Let’s take a look at what this treatment can offer our skin through it’s highly exfoliating and beneficial properties.
What is microdermabrasion?
It is an incredible process for renewing your skin, brightening it, and unclogging your pores. Microdermabrasion exfoliates away the topmost layer of the skin using tiny crystals or a diamond tip. The crystals circulate above the skin, buffing away the dead, dry skin cells that sit on the surface, after-which the machine vacuums all of the loose skin that has been exfoliated.
Microdermabrasion is meant to help products better penetrate the skin, make your skin feel incredibly smooth and help small whiteheads heal faster. It can also brighten up your complexion while revealing the glowing, new layers beneath that top layer of dead, dull skin that can often make your face appear pigmented and dark.
What are the benefits?
Minimal to no downtime – this is a non-invasive procedure, however, the skin will appear red and feel sensitive for hours following treatment, but that is temporary. A good, simple, calming lotion may help that.
Better makeup application – your smooth skin texture will greatly compliment your makeup routine leaving you with smooth, incredibly glowy skin.
Elimination of mild acne scars – small scars from acne will be greatly improved with regular Vancouver microdermabrasion treatments due to the exfoliation process.
Improve mild complexion problems – things like uneven pigmentation and rough or uneven skin texture can benefit from microdermabrasion.
Clogged pores – microdermabrasion treatments can unclog pores which can otherwise lead to acne, which is often the case in oily skin.
Does it hurt?
The sensation of microdermabrasion can feel like slight itching or a little bit of stinging, but it definitely should not hurt. You can also speak to your friendly technician if it begins to feel uncomfortable so that the machine can be adjusted accordingly.
