Microdermabrasion has been around for over 20 years. Within that time it has been upgraded and redesigned over and over again. But the procedure itself still stands as one of the most powerful treatments in the Spa industry. Why is that exactly. Well because it works. It has been proven time and time again to give immediate anti-aging results just after one procedure.
How does Microdermabrasion work?
Microdermabrasion is an exfoliating procedure that works by physically slothing and vacuuming off the top layer, or the more medical term “Stratum Corneum” layer which is the outermost layer on the epidermis. This is the layer that has dead skin cells.
The results you can expect are:
- removal of dark marks
- removal of pigmentation
- removal of dead skin cells
- clears out black and whiteheads which helps reduce pore size
- stimulates blood circulation
- firms and improves the skin’s elasticity and texture
In most cases you can get a microdermabrasion treatment at a spa or skin clinic. The results in these settings will be more drastic because medical grade products and other techniques are being used to contribute to the overall result.
There are also microdermabrasion machines that can be used at home. Although not as strong of a treatment that you get in a spa, the at home microdermabrasion tool can be used to maintain clear and healthy skin in between treatments.
Spa microdermabrasion treatments can start from $80.00 and up per treatment given the techniques and products used. 6 sessions are normally what is needed to get true results. At home devices range in prices from $70-$200. They can be used 1 to 2 times weeks on a low setting and can replace normal exfoliating.
