Let's talk microdermabrasion.....
What Is Microdermabrasion?
Not as complicated, or uncomfortable, as it sounds, microdermabrasion is deep exfoliation usually the face but can be used all over (Enter the stretch marks!) to remove dead skin cells on the surface
Microdermabrasion uses a variable flow of vacuum suction to maintain contact with the skin whilst the diamond tips get to work by smoothing and buffing the skin's surface.
What Does Microdermabrasion Feel Like?
The sensation of the treatment feels like mild suction. 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.
Mostly, you can just feel the suction of the vacuum as it glides over your skin. It's a little more apparent in certain areas, such as your cheeks and around your nose, where you're a little fleshier.
Overall, it's a super-fast and non-invasive treatment, which means that there's zero downtime, so you can fit it in during your lunch break and not have to worry about scaring anyone off with red raw cheeks.
What Does Microdermabrasion Do For Your Skin?
It all sounds pretty cool, but what does the treatment actually do for your skin?
Microdermabrasion is one of the most popular non-surgical skin resurfacing treatments. The expert exfoliating technique can banish common skin bugbears such as:
Uneven skin texture
And that's before we've touched on its ability to trigger increased levels of collagen and elastin to allow better absorption of skincare products (meaning better results) and the fact that it reveals newer, healthier cells, lending your face to a lovely glow.
