The key to any good beauty routine is consistency. You must wash your face, apply those creams, and keep out of the sun. The other thing you should be doing regularly is having a microdermabrasion treatment. Our skin will often get bogged down with dead skin cells and other impurities. Microdermabrasion is the perfect treatment to help mitigate the everyday wear and tear your skin goes through. Overall, you can keep looking your best with a beauty routine that include these treatments.
How It Works
Don’t let the name fool you! Microdermabrasion is fairly gentle treatment that can freshen up your skin and make it look years younger. There are two types of this treatment, which each work wonders.
Crystal microdermabrasion is perhaps the most popular type of this treatment. It uses super-fine crystals in order to achieve results. Basically, these crystals travel through a tube and into a wand-like device that sprays them over your skin in a gentle and controlled manner and then vacuums them back into the device. These crystals, which are made of sodium bicarbonate, sodium chloride, and magnesium oxide, are able to naturally exfoliate your skin.
The other type of microdermabrasion uses a wand with a diamond-encrusted tip. As this tip is moved over and along your skin, it is able to exfoliate the skin and vacuums away any stray particles. Both types of this treatment are incredibly effective and offer similar benefits.
Shrink Your Pores
First, this treatment can unclog your pores, sucking away impurities, so that your pores can go back to their normal size. It also improves circulation in your skin, which can also reduce the inflammation that is causing your larger pores.
Clear Away Acne
Microdermabrasion can help you finally be rid of blemishes and acne. As the treatments are able to clear away all that dead skin and those impurities clogging your pores, it lessens inflammation, which can be a cause of your acne. This treatment can even get rid of those pesky blackheads on your nose and cheeks.
Eliminate Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Next, microdermabrasion can help eliminate those fine lines and wrinkles. Your non-invasive treatment will actually prompt your skin to begin producing more collagen, which is what you need to improve the structure of your skin.
Reduce the Look of Scars
Last, this treatment can help reduce the look of your scars that were caused by injuries or old acne breakouts. It wears away old scar tissue, lessening the raised parts of the scar. And the improved circulation that exfoliation provides can also help stimulate new healthy collagen to form in the place of your scar.
