Blast the Years Away
By: Samantha Neathery
If the guying looking back at you in the mirror has aged too much for your liking, you may want to consider microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion is a quick non-invasive procedure that resurfaces the skin. It removes the top layer of skin by ‘sandblasting’ it with medical grade crystals, revealing younger looking skin below (It’s kind of like power washing your deck to remove stains and brighten it up). It is successful in dramatically reducing scarring, large pores, pigmentation spots, sun damage, wrinkles, and uneven skin texture and tone. The crystals remove dead skin cells which promote new, smoother clearer skin.
For best results a series of 6 treatments approximately 2-3 weeks apart is recommended. The treatment itself takes only about 30 minutes so it’s easy to fit into even the busiest schedule. Mild redness is to be expected for a few hours after the treatment, along with a feeling of mild sunburn or windburn. Avoid direct sun exposure for 48 hours and any type of exfoliation after the treatment. While microderm is not recommended for clients with sensitive skin, severe acne, or rosacea, it is one the most effective and beneficial ways to maintain healthy skin.
