What Is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion in Dallas Fort Worth, TXMicrodermabrasion has become an increasingly popular facial treatment that can benefit women and men of nearly any age. The process is a gentle but deep form of exfoliation that removes dead skin cells and thus encourages new cells to form more rapidly. The result is that clients who use this type of skincare see increased brightness and softness to the skin, with wrinkle reduction as an outcome of the stimulated cell growth.

The process of microdermabrasion is performed mechanically, with a traditional tipped tool that blows crystals on the surface of the skin.. The process can focus on specific trouble areas, but is also used as a full facial treatment for greater benefit. As the microderm wand is swept across face, it will remove the surface cells, which results in:

  • Clearing blocked pores
  • Eliminating dirt, dead cells, and residues
  • Stimulating natural regenerative processes
  • Smoothing the overall texture of the skin

The microderm wand allows for an effective but gentle treatment that will not overly abrade the skin, but is still powerful enough to achieve positive outcomes. This is very different than a regular facial scrub, in that microdermabrasion is actually less aggressive, but the focused work that can be done with the microderm wand also leads to more immediately noticeable results.

Considering The Process

Prior to a microdermabrasion, clients can expect to have their skin prepared for the treatment, which can include a gentle cleansing and light pretreatment. Clients can then relax as the microderm wand is used to treat the entire face as well as trouble spots on the skin. Along with the general benefits of a brighter complexion and healthier skin, this process is also effective on concerns such as:

  • Brown spots
  • Coarse skin
  • Larger pores
  • Age spots

Although the process of microdermabrasion is painless, some clients can feel slight discomfort during treatment, especially if there are areas of thicker skin which may need to be addressed. However, the majority of clients find the process relaxing, and some sensitivity after treatment is common. The resurfacing does lead to a general sense of invigoration, and the visible effects can be witnessed even after a single treatment.

Keeping Up Routines

Depending on skin type, many clients make microdermabrasion a part of their regular spa routines. For anti-aging and skin health benefits, most individuals will have microdermabrasion performed every two weeks. This protocol can be especially impactful, as the stimulation of collagen is renewed with each treatment, and the result is that the skin improves in texture, tone, and even volume.
