At Expressive Beauty, we can help to remove these surface imperfections that make you look older, and give your skin a refreshed and more youthful appearance.
Microdermabrasion for Refinement of Skin Texture
Microdermabrasion is used to reduce the appearance of sun damage, acne scars, discoloration and stretch marks on the skin. It can also help to lighten age spots, eliminate blackheads and reduce wrinkles and fine lines. Microdermabrasion works by gently sanding down the upper surface of the skin. In addition, it stimulates the revealed layers of skin to produce more collagen for brighter, younger complexion. The new collagen production compensates for the loss of collagen that occurs with normal aging. The result is a smoother, more even skin color and texture that allows you to look your best.
The Microdermabrasion Procedure
Microdermabrasion involves “sanding” the surface of the skin with special equipment that gently scrapes off dead skin cells and vacuums them off the surface. Fine crystals or a diamond-tipped tool is used to do this. It is a more gentle process than “Dermabrasion,” which removes more of the surface skin layers. The client rests in a chair, while the technician carefully exfoliates the upper layers of the skin with the specially-designed device. The procedure takes from 45 minutes to an hour, taking care to produce the highest quality effect. Generally, clients will require several sessions to achieve the best results. The microdermabrasion procedure is not painful, but clients may feel a scratching or warming sensation as the dead skin cells are removed.
After the microdermabrasion procedure, the new skin that is revealed will be quite delicate and sensitive. You will be advised to take special care to protect your skin from the sun. Your beauty consultant can advise you on appropriate skin creams to help the skin stay hydrated and soothed. Your skin may be a bit pink from the microdermabrasion process. This coloration will quickly fade within a day or two.
