Reveal Younger Looking Skin with Microdermabrasion
Let’s talk a bout microdermabrasion. At some point, maybe it has already happened or maybe it hasn’t happened yet, you will look at old pictures of yourself and realize that you now look older. Although this is inevitable, it can still be a hard pill to swallow. What’s worse is that you won’t be able to pinpoint exactly what is different. More than likely, it is your skin.
Skin begins to show signs of again as early as our twenties. Decreased collagen and elastin production causes skin to wrinkle and become dull. You can fill your cabinets and closets with all of the latest and greatest anti aging serums, creams, and masks, and it still may not be enough to refresh and rejuvenate your skin. You don’t have to give up hope, and you don’t have to go under the knife either. Microdermabrasion provides big benefits for those who decide to have the treatment. There are anti aging skincare treatments which are safer than plastic surgery and more effective than anti-aging products. One such treatment is microdermabrasion.
This anti aging skin care procedure is no longer just for ne’er do wells and celebrities. Everyone can benefit from the restorative power for microdermabrasion. It offers an instant, non invasive, relatively low cost facelift without the risks that accompany a real facelift.
During this non invasive cosmetic procedure a trained professional will remove the layer of dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. This brightens skin, making it look more youthful and vibrant. There are two components to this procedure. First, there needs to be an exfoliating substances like diamond or crystal flakes. Second, there is a machine to suction away the dead skin cells.
What to Expect
Unlike more complex procedures, microdermabrasion requires no “down time.” You could actually receive a treatment during your lunch hour, go back to work and no one would be the wiser. This, and the low cost, is part of the mainstream appeal of this procedure.
Before your procedure, which should only be done by a trained professional, the doctor or technician will gather your medical history and study your skin. Depending on the type and sensitivity of your skin, the machine will be adjusted accordingly. The procedure usually lasts between 20 minutes to an hour during which the professional will use a machine to buff the skin and remove any dead skin. Since the procedure only affects the top layer of the skin, it is virtually painless. Directly after the procedure, your skin may become slightly pink for a short amount of time.
In order to get the most out of this treatment, you will have to schedule multiple sessions every few weeks. Once the dead skin cells have been removed, your skin will appear younger, brighter, and less wrinkled. As long as the procedure is performed by an experienced professional, like those at Skinney Med Spa, there are relatively few side effects, other than minor irritation directly after the procedure. When microdermabrasion removes the age spots, crow’s feet, and fine lines, it is really removing years from your skin.
