The Inside Info on Microdermabrasion
If you’ve tried just about every physical exfoliator and acid for your pigmentation, acne scars, uneven skin texture or clogged pores – and nothing has worked… it might be time to book in for microdermabrasion, the professional skin treatment that promises clearer, healthier, radiant skin in virtually next to no time at all. Here’s what you need to know…
What Is Microdermabrasion?
Not as complicated, or uncomfortable, as it sounds, microdermabrasion is ‘exfoliation in the form of spraying tiny crystals at the skin – usually the face – to remove dead skin cells on the surface
Microdermabrasion uses a variable flow of vacuum suction to maintain contact with the skin whilst the crystals (or diamond tips) get to work by smoothing and buffing the skin’s surface. This depends on the percentage of vacuum suction and the grade of crystals chosen by your skincare expert. There are a few different types of microdermabrasion treatments, from diamond tips to crystals and different crystal grades, but this is very much dependent on the clinic carrying out the treatment and the equipment they choose.
What Does Microdermabrasion Do For Your Skin?
Microdermabrasion is an in-clinic mechanical exfoliation treatment. Buffing away the dead skin cells leaves the skin looking more radiant and feeling smoother. It can help improve surface texture and very superficial fine lines and wrinkles.
It’s one of the most popular non-surgical skin resurfacing treatments and can banish common skin conditions such as:
* Uneven pigmentation
* Fine lines
* Clogged pores
* Enlarged pores
* Post-acne marks
* Uneven skin texture
* Excessive oil
* Dry skin
And that’s before we’ve touched on its ability to trigger increased levels of collagen and elastin (hello plump, pillowy skin), to allow better absorption of skincare products (meaning better results) and the fact that it reveals newer, healthier cells, lending your face an otherworldly glow.
What Does Microdermabrasion Feel Like?
The sensation of the treatment feels like mild scratching. Some clients describe it as feeling like a windy day at the beach. The treatment is comfortable with a satisfying sensation of feeling hoovered, buffed and polished to leave skin feeling squeaky clean, and positively glowing.
Overall, it’s a super-fast and non-invasive treatment, which means that there’s zero downtime, so after the treatment, you can go about your day and not have to worry about scaring anyone off a with a red, raw face.
