Q: What Is Microdermabrasion?
A: Microdermabrasion is an effective, non-surgical way to get rid of acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles & sunspots by exfoliating the top layers of the skin. No chemicals or laser beams are used, only a dimond tip that gently srubs your skin, leaving it smooth, fresh, and soft like a baby! Microdermabrasion also stimulates collagen production, helping your skin rejuvenate faster than normal. Microdermabrasion takes up to one hour and has no downtime! Your skin will GLOW!!!
Q: What Does Microdermabrasion Involve?
A: Your skin is first cleansed twice, with products especially for YOUR skin type! The Esthetician then starts the microdermabrasion procedure using a hand-held device. The device works by gently exfoliating with the dimond tipped wand against the skin, the wand vacuums back dead skin cells all at the same time.
The esthetician slowly moves the wand across your entire face and not just on treated areas. After microdermabrasion, your skin is soothed with a special mask, moisturizer and nourishing spf, allowing you to go back to your daily routine immediately after treatment.
Q: Is Microdermabrasion For Me?
A: If your skin care goal is to get rid of acne scars, blotchy skin, the appearance of large pores, age or sun spots, fine lines & wrinkles or uneven skin tone and texture, you are a perfect candidate for microdermabrasion. All skin types and colors can be treated with microdermabrasion. But before you go ahead, talk to your esthetician about your medical history because there are conditions which may make microdermabrasion unsuitable for you.
Q: Are There Any Microdermabrasion Contraindications?
A: Microderm abrasion is not recommended to keratosis sufferers, people with undiagnosed lesions, active rosacea or acne, weeping acne (stages 3 to 4), diabetes, auto-immune disorders, fragile capillaries, eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis or lupus. Recent laser surgery or Accutane acne treatment may also be sound reasons for your esthetician not to recommend microdermabrasion. Discuss your medical history to your esthetician if unsure.
Q: Will I Experience Any Discomfort During Treatment Does It Hurt?
A: Micro abrasion treatment is painless. It feels like the mild facial massage from a special wand. Your face may appear a little pinkish in the first 24 hours, but you should not experience any itchiness or pain.
