If you want to reduce the appearance of fine lines and blemishes on your face, without resorting to cosmetic surgery, microdermabrasion could be exactly what you need. Using tiny crystals to remove dead and damaged skin cells, this med spa treatment proves that diamonds can, indeed, be a girl’s best friend. Although it’s a non-surgical procedure, there are plenty of benefits to opting for microdermabrasion. Never mind diamond jewelry and sparkly rings, this is potentially a far better use of crystals.
What Is Microdermabrasion?
In short, microdermabrasion is a quick, simple, non-invasive skin resurfacing treatment which exfoliates your skin, with the aim of reducing lines and blemishes and revealing a brighter, more rejuvenated you. Tiny crystals are applied to your face by an experienced, reputable aesthetician, who will then use a vacuum to remove them along with those damaged skin cells keeping you from looking your best. You can expect some pinkness for a short while following microdermabrasion, but no downtime is usually required. Bear in mind that you may need more than one session for full benefits to be achieved.
Aside from rejuvenating your skin, microdermabrasion can help boost the penetration of skincare products and give you a smoother surface for cosmetics.
Am I Eligible for Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is suitable for all skin types and tones, although your individual suitability may be affected by other factors. In general, you can experience the benefits of microdermabrasion if you’re in good general health, looking to target minor lines, blemishes or enlarged, clogged pores and, for best results, aged between around 35 and 50. These aren’t exhaustive criteria so, if you’re keen to harness microdermabrasion benefits for yourself, book a consultation with an experienced aesthetician at a reputable med spa.
