Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure used as a facial rejuvenation tool. Our state of the art Vortex Peel machine rapidly exfoliates the skin’s surface removing the outermost layer of skin cells. The treatment is not painful, and there is no recovery time. Your skin may be a bit pink afterward but this quickly fades. You’re left with a smoother, softer face and glowing complexion.
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 skincare 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 can naturally boost the production of collagen and elastin. Skin naturally repairs itself, but as we grow older we produce far less of the good stuff that keeps us looking young. Regular microdermabrasion treatments can be a very effective method of staving off aging by advancing the production of these proteins in the skin.
Microdermabrasion is especially helpful in reducing the appearance of scars, sun damage, fine lines, and wrinkles. With proper home care, clients can see drastic results in their appearance with just one series. By creating a series of in-office treatments during the course of the cooler months and curating a special take-home package of products, your customers will have an opportunity to erase the damage of the months past and an even greater motivation to keep themselves out of the sun this year!
Body treatments are also making a big wave on the market at many spas. Microdermabrasion is an excellent choice for these types of applications because it is strong enough to work on stretch marks, scars, and acne marks. Many people who live with scars and marks don’t realize that, although they might not be able to erase the damage completely, they can greatly reduce the signs with treatments like microdermabrasion and light therapy. In fact, the use of the two technologies together can create drastic improvement, especially in newer scarring.
Microdermabrasion is a great application for male clients. More and more men are walking into spas or dermatology centers asking for things like smaller pores, reduced scarring, smoother and younger looking skin, and so forth. These same guys are not exactly gung ho for more extreme measures, so microdermabrasion is an ideal fit for many men.
