When we were young, we exposed our skin to sun and wind with no thought to the future, and now each morning the face in the mirror reveals the effects. But what if you could reset the clock and restore your skin to its youthful radiance? Our team at Glow Medispa in Seattle is excited to discuss microdermabrasion benefits and help you determine whether this treatment is right for you.
What Is Microdermabrasion?
The skin has two main layers: the dermis and epidermis. The top part of the epidermis is a very thin layer of dead cells known as the stratum corneum. The stratum corneum serves an important function. It protects the deeper levels of the skin from the outside world, and because of this it gets the most wear and tear. Microdermabrasion removes the evidence of this wear and tear.
Using a gentle stream of tiny crystals, we gradually remove the stratum corneum. As this protective layer disappears, so do the undesired textures, colors, and other characteristics it manifests. In response, the body rushes fresh cells to replace the barrier, and in a short time you have youthful, radiant skin. Not only is microdermabrasion painless, but it is also quick, with a session lasting just 40 minutes.
6 Microdermabrasion Benefits
There are six significant ways microdermabrasion benefits your skin.
1. Reverses Sun Damage
All those years of sun exposure may have played havoc with your skin, but you can start over with this treatment. Remove age spots and other telltale signs left behind by UV rays and uncover your youthful glow from years gone by.
2. Softens Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Everybody wants to look younger, especially in the workplace. Microdermabrasion helps soften age lines and restores a vibrant youthfulness so you can look as fresh on Friday afternoon as you do on Monday morning.
3. Smooths Skin Texture
You can use this treatment to get rid of rough patches and unwanted contours. Microdermabrasion leaves skin feeling soft and smooth and also enables a more consistent application of cosmetics.
4. Reduces Acne Scars
Some of us will forever associate high school with skin problems. You may carry some reminders of a very unpleasant condition, but thanks to this treatment, you can make these marks much less noticeable.
5. Unclogs Pores
Clogged pores can lead to pimples and other skin issues if they become infected. You can clear them out before they become a problem.
6. Enhances Other Treatments
Microdermabrasion benefits go beyond the treatment, itself. The treatment also makes lotions and other topical treatments more effective because removing the stratum corneum allows them to go deeper into the skin.
