We all want healthy, young-looking skin! But you may have tried at-home creams and serums to no avail, and maybe you’ve tried some spa treatment that really didn’t do much of anything, either. Read on for information about microdermabrasion and how it can change your skin for the better!
What is microdermabrasion used for?
This procedure gives the skin a refreshed look, and it also helps to reduce the appearance of imperfections such as acne scars, fine lines, damage from the sun, age spots, and enlarged pores.
How is microdermabrasion done?
Microdermabrasion is the process of removing the very upper layer of the skin with an abrasive tool that “sands” the upper layer off. The layer underneath is smooth and healthy, and the action of removing the upper layer also helps to stimulate new skin cells to grow.
This technique has been used for a long time to help improve skin, but microdermabrasion is even better at AesthetiSpa, because we use the DiamondTome Skin Resurfacing System. This is a technique that doesn’t use loose abrasives to remove the skin layer – a wand gently abrades the skin with natural diamond chips.
What are the benefits of microdermabrasion?
Besides the amazing results that can be seen after microdermabrasion, this procedure has many other benefits. It is noninvasive and nonsurgical, and no down time is required afterward – you can get right back into your daily activities as soon as you leave the spa. It typically only takes 20 to 30 minutes per treatment. You’ll start to see results after the first treatment, but you may need 6 to 12 treatment sessions depending on what your goals are. You may have a bit of light peeling afterward, but this can be helped by using moisturizer. Another benefit is that microdermabrasion treatments are painless. And yet another benefit is that the DiamondTome system comes with very little risk – as opposed to other techniques that use microscopic crystals sprayed across the skin, which can cause a reaction in some people.
Microdermabrasion is a great way to get skin that looks younger, refreshed, smooth, and clean. Contact AesthetiSpa for a microdermabrasion appointment. Call (843) 849-9925 today!
