Do you want healthy, glowing skin? Of course you do. WE ALL DO! Unfortunately, a luminous complexion can be hard to achieve for the majority of us. Fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, clogged pores, age spots, hyperpigmentation and sun damage are just SOME of the obstacles standing in the way of radiant skin. That’s where microdermabrasion can help.
What is Microdermabrasion?
Put simply, microdermabrasion is mechanised skin exfoliation. Most of us will have used an exfoliator from a tube or a bottle and enjoyed that soft, smooth skin feeling afterwards. Microdermabrasion operates on the same principal – by removing dead skin cells – but it goes further, deeper and delivers results you just can’t get from a bottle. Microdermabrasion uses tiny crystals to remove the stratum corneum, the outermost layer of dead skin cells. This deep cleans the skin and triggers the body to replace those lost skin cells with new, healthy ones.
Result = Soft, Smooth, Younger Looking and More Vibrant Skin
The best thing about microdermabrasion is that it is instant and it is non-invasive. This makes it perfect for those of us who lead busy lives (don’t we all!) and can’t give our skin as much time as we’d like to.
What Improvements Will I see?
Here are just some of the benefits we see our clients enjoying after just one treatment.
- Appearance of lines and wrinkles is reduced
- Skin is softer and more vibrant. Some say it glows!
- Pores are minimised
- Reduction in the appearance of ages spots and hyperpigmentation
- Improvement in acne and acne scarring
Most people will have 6-10 treatments over a period of time. Intervals will be determined by your skin type and condition. We find that after one treatment, our clients can’t wait to have the next one!
Does it Hurt?
Microdermabrasion is usually described as being uncomfortable rather than painful. You may find your skin takes on a slight pink tinge afterwards but this will disappear in less than 24 hours. Skin may also be sensitive for a few days so it is a good idea to apply a rich moisturiser and sunscreen if out in the sun. Other side effects are rare.
Is it Worth It?
Yes. We see the results in our salon every day. We truly believe if you want healthy, glowing, more youthful skin, microdermabrasion is an excellent option. Find out more or book an appointment at our Nowra Salon.
