For most people, winter brings dehydrated skin to the forefront. Clients will complain of scratchy skin that is undernourished and overly parched. Unfortunately, many turn to pharmacy fixes that only exacerbate the problems. From drying granular scrubs that cause micro-tearing to pore-clogging moisturizing creams, you might find a whole host of skin care issues to deal with when your client sits down in your chair.
The good news is that Health and MedSpa has a plan. Microdermabrasion can address a number of skin conditions, and can act as an addition to many of your current esthetic offerings. What our clients need to understand is that proper exfoliation must be accomplished before serious hydration can occur.
Dead skin cells, sebum, product accumulation, and makeup debris block the pores and prevent moisturizing products from actually doing their jobs. Unlike scrubs and everyday products, microdermabrasion will remove several layers of the epidermis in one session, and will allow for more intense hydration. This could never be achieved with a home remedy, so your clients will love the instant results.
During the summer, many clients develop dark spots, aging, fine lines, sun damage, and deeper scarring due to all the time spent in the sun. Microdermabrasion is recommended for treating all of these symptoms and more.
Microdermabrasion is a non-chemical, non-invasive procedure that uses either a spray of micro-
crystals or a crystal-free resurfacing tip for gentle epidermal abrasion that reveals newer,
healthier, and younger looking skin.
In the procedure our esthetician uses a handheld device that propels a high-speed flow of aluminum oxide crystals onto the skin, sweeping away all dead skin cells and imperfections in its wake. A vacuum follows the wand, removing the dirt, dead cells, and used crystals, leaving the skin feeling clean and refreshed.
Not only does microdermabrasion treat and reduce the appearance of the skin conditions listed
above, it also encourages the production of a new, underlying layer of skin cells with higher
levels of collagen and elastin. By removing the upper layers of the epidermis, microdermabrasion also allows serums and creams to more easily penetrate the skin.
Age and skin condition determine the number of treatments required to achieve optimal results. Your provider can help you to decide on the number of treatments needed to accomplish desired effects; however results can be seen in both the texture and the appearance of the skin after just one session. An initial series of treatments, combined with maintenance sessions, will result in better skin quality over time. Microdermabrasion can be combined with almost any regular facial, so it can easily be worked into your beauty regimen.
Another benefit associated with microdermabrasion is that there is no downtime. Skin typically
appears pink right after the procedure, but returns to a more normal appearance within twenty
four hours. Anyone who receives micro-dermabrasion should avoid the sun for several days to
prevent additional side effects. More than anything, those who have undergone microdermabrasion are most satisfied with the amazing glow they receive after the treatment!
