Microdermabrasion is a quick, painless, non-invasive exfoliation that is used to improve the skin’s appearance. It gently removes the outer layers of the skin’s dead cells, and is especially effective when done in a series. Here are 7 benefits of receiving this great treatment:
A build up of dead skin cells can leave the skin feeling dull. Microdermabrasion fights dullness by brightening the skin’s appearance.
Microdermabrasion leaves the skin feeling soft and smooth. Patients who wear foundation will find that it applies more smoothly.
3. PRODUCT EFFICACY
Serums and other skincare products will penetrate the skin more effectively because the dead skin cells have been removed.
Keeping the skin exfoliated is important. Microdermabrasion is a great maintenance treatment for the skin because it is quick and there is no down time.
With a series of treatments, patients may see an improvement in mild skin imperfections such as uneven skin tone and superficial fine lines.
Microdermabrasion can provide benefit for clogged pores because it removes some of the build up of dead skin cells which may contribute to blemishes.
It is a great treatment immediately prior to a chemical peel. The microdermabrasion acts as a “pre exfoliation”, allowing the chemical peel to be much more effective than when done on its own.
