We’ll take it from the top and treat your facial skin. Other than the known aid of hydration through ideal daily water intake to cleanse impurities and plump cells, we can assist our skin in maintaining hydration levels while smoothing fine lines, wrinkles and diminishing imperfections. No, not by way of some new “miracle cream” but through the scientifically proven effective treatment of microdermabrasion.
What is microdermabrasion really? A secret held by Hollywood beauties that has now crossed over into the mainstream public is “an effective alternative to costlier and more invasive procedures like plastic surgery, chemical peels and Botox injections. Recently, more and more men are trying it, instead of pursuing cosmetic surgery. “- Health.com. No expensive dermatologist visit required. You can safely perform microdermabrasion at home in the shower where you control the pressure or enjoy a relaxing treatment by a specialist at your favorite facial spa through the use of a little buffer and vacuum. The average cost of a spa treatment microdermabrasion is $154 and at least 6 treatments are suggested for best results. At home duo treatments can save you a great deal and cost approximately $50 for 33 applications.

Microdermabrasion, or as How Stuff Works more accurately defines it “micro-epi-dermabrasion”, is the application of micro spheres of rough grains, the most effective and safe being aluminum oxide crystals, to slough or buff away the topmost layer of dead skin cells, the stratum corneum or epidermis. This layer is where we find most skin imperfections like acne, sun damage and fine wrinkle lines. As we age, our skin’s sloughing process slows allowing these imperfections to collect and deepen. Microdermabrasion assists our skin in speeding up this process again to reveal smooth, glowing skin and reduce or eliminate scaring. Affecting deeper layers of skin would be painful and harmful.
As this top layer of dead skin cells is removed, the body rushes to replace it with new, healthy cells and allows moisturizers and treatment serums to be received more deeply and thus effectively into the skin.
A two-part system is ideal to immediately fight fine lines, reduce the appearance of pores, and create noticeably softer, smoother-feeling skin with a healthy, more radiant-looking glow.
- Step 1: Refine – Key exfoliating crystals immediately energize skin and reveal more radiant, healthy-looking skin.
- Step 2: Replenish – Nourish the soft, smooth-feeling skin revealed by Step 1: Refine.
ALWAYS keep sunscreen on your facial skin during the day but especially after microdermabrasion. At home treatments can be done every 3 days while professional treatments are usually spaced apart by a week. Treat your entire décolleté (face, neck and chest) for the most beautiful skin and best results.
