If you’re looking for a fast, convenient and painless route to the rejuvenation of your skin in time for summer, maybe it’s time to try microdermabrasion – especially if you suffer from acne scarring, pigmentation, open pores, blackheads, lines and wrinkles.
Microdermabrasion treatment is a chemical-free, non-invasive course of treatment. Essentially, it safely and effectively gets rid of layers of dead skin cells with the use of a cutting-edge handset that deploys a harmless jet of non-allergenic crystals. The results are twofold: it gives the skin an instant rejuvenation while encouraging your skin to produce a new layer – which stimulates blood flow and increases vital collagen and elastin production.
What happens during microdermabrasion
You will be invited to a consultation, where your practitioner will determine your skin type, take on board your individual needs, and map out a treatment plan. You may only need a single session of microdermabrasion, or a course of treatments that will get to the root of your skin problems – it’s entirely up to you, and your bespoke needs.
Microdermabrasion sessions begin with the use of a gel cleanser, to ensure your skin is clean and dry, and then the handset is deployed, sloughing off dead skin cells and vacuuming them away. Afterwards, a neutral pH moisturiser is applied, in order to prevent the fresh top layer of skin from peeling and drying out.
Next to no post-treatment worries
After a microdermabrasion treatment, you will be advised to avoid sun damage by using a moisturiser with an SPF, but that’s pretty much the sum total of your post-treatment regime. It’s a walk-in, walk-out treatment, and you’ll be able to return to your day-to-day duties immediately.
