Suitable for all skin types, the Microdermabrasion Facial at Pristine Spas promises to leave your skin feeling silky smooth, rejuvenated, and glowing with renewed vitality.
Unlike facials, Microdermabrasion actually incorporates a tool (or wand) and, in this way, exfoliates the skin and significantly reduces the signs of aging. Your complexion looks and feels smoother and refreshed, from fine lines to wrinkles. Perhaps this is why Microdermabrasion is becoming so popular, mainly in the spas. People are scheduling their appointments for Microdermabrasion and coming out feeling more confident than ever!
A trained aesthetician will perform the Microdermabrasion using a unique wand meant to smooth and even out skin tone and texture. Risks are minimal, if not highly rare and results are always incredible! This can benefit all skin types, though it is essential to first consult with the aesthetician and address any concerns/issues you may have going into your appointment.
This is considered to be a non-invasive cosmetic procedure. An aesthetician or specialist will use a wand; this wand, in turn, will spray fine crystals across the targeted area. The rod's action in conjunction with the crystals serves to exfoliate the skin thoroughly. In essence, the top layer of skin composed primarily of dead skin cells gets removed, revealing a fresher and brighter layer underneath.
Generally, the procedure should last approximately 30 minutes—it is not thought to be painful at all. There could be some slight swelling afterward and redness that dissipates pretty quickly. You can resume all regular activity after your microdermabrasion appointment. Some experts recommend receiving anywhere from 5 to 7 treatments to get maximum results. Usually, treatments will be scheduled at least two weeks apart. Again, you want to address any issues with your aesthetician as you work through the microdermabrasion treatments. Keep in mind, the results, while stunning, are not permanent, so that you may require additional treatments throughout the year depending on your desired outcome.
The goal is obviously to achieve younger and more radiant skin. And indeed, when getting Microdermabrasion, you will notice that skin looks more lustrous and is smoother to the touch.
Among some of the other microdermabrasion benefits are:
Often Microdermabrasion will be used in conjunction with other spa treatments to enhance the benefits of that treatment. For instance, if you get an acne facial with Microdermabrasion added on, you will notice that the scarring from acne can look far less apparent than with just the facial alone.
First off, you want to consult with a dermatologist or doctor if you have a skin condition or are suffering from some form of skin issue. You will also consult with the aesthetician who will be performing the Microdermabrasion so that you can get all questions answered and any concerns you have addressed before your actual appointment. When consulting with the aesthetician, you may want to inquire about the following:
During this consult, the aesthetician will likely do a check/examination of your skin to assess for skin type and whether Microdermabrasion is suitable for you.
One common question people have regarding microdermabrasion treatments is about the side effects. Are there any side effects of Microdermabrasion? The short answer here is not usually, and if there are, they tend to be mild and fade quickly. For instance, there can be some swelling and redness—these go away in a few hours, if not sooner.
If you do develop patches of skin that are bleeding or change dramatically somehow, it is best to consult with a doctor. Some people could notice, among specific effects, a redness that looks like sunburn, light bruising, a stinging sensation, and increased skin sensitivity following your microdermabrasion appointment.
One key thing is to use sunscreen on your face following your session. Skin does tend to be a bit more sensitive as that top layer of skin was removed, leaving a new layer of skin exposed. You want to protect this skin with a high SPF sunscreen.
Following your Microdermabrasion, you can resume your normal activities; in other words, there is no downtime required. And any redness etc. will disappear entirely in a few days.
People wonder whether or not they can perform Microdermabrasion on themselves at home. While there are microdermabrasion wands available to purchase online or in stores, thus allowing you to do it at home, it is not the best course of action for this type of treatment. A skilled aesthetician who has been trained in this technique will get better results than if you try it on yourself at home. If you want to try an at-home version of Microdermabrasion, you first speak with your dermatologist. A dermatologist can also explain how you can best deal with any side effects that might occur afterward.
Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure that leaves your skin looking younger and feeling smoother and softer. Again, it could require a series of sessions to get optimal results and to have those results last longer. Often this process is used to get rid of acne scars, even out age spots, get rid of fine lines, and restore the skin's natural glow. While there are home kits you could buy, they will almost always be much better performed by a certified aesthetician. Spas frequently offer this treatment as an individual service and an add-on to facials.
If you have any concerns, you should speak to a doctor or dermatologist before your appointment.
