Show You Inner Glow with Microdermabrasion
There’s a line from a movie I love, “The difference from ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra.” And that’s what a Microdermabrasion is to your already beautiful skin! So now that you know the name of the procedure, let’s talk a little more in detail about what it is and how it works.
A Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure involving a gentle, exfoliating process that can completely revitalize the complexion of your skin. It is recommended to do these procedures two to four weeks apart for six to twelve half-hour sessions to achieve maximum effectiveness. The procedure works on just the surface layers of the skin. A microdermabrasion is virtually painless. If you’re feeling a bit uncomfortable you can always ask your technician for a “lighter hand.” It works outstanding for skins of all complexions and will give your skin a revitalized and radiant glow.
After the procedure is complete your skin will be highly sensitive and have a red hue. You should avoid long periods of exposure to light for the first week at the very least as ultra-violet rays can cause a fair amount of damage to exposed skin in a short amount of time. This, of course, also rules out tanning for the first week after as well. You will also want to avoid any scratching to the treated site(s), and using any type of harsh chemicals. Swelling could start a few days following the procedure but once the skin start to fully heal you’ll begin to take notice of the radiance that microdermabrasion treatments will bring to your skin. Should you choose to stop the treatments, it can take anywhere up to three months for your skin to revert to its natural complexion.
Microdermbrasion is safe and effective even at the most minimal amount of sessions placed a month apart. If you are ready to show your inner glow, consult with our plastic surgeon.
