If you could remove the dead skin cells found in the outermost layer of the skin, below the surface lies a more radiant, clearer and even toned face. Microdermabrasion is one effective treatment to eliminate the lifeless epidermis.
Utilizing a specialized hand piece, a practitioner will glide the wand smoothly over the skin removing the outermost layers while suction pulls the dead skin cells into a debris canister. This action occurs by small-sterilized crystals that are propelled at the skin. The treatment encourages growth of new skin cells and will improve levels of collagen and elastin. The simplicity and effectiveness of microdermabrasion is what makes this non-invasive treatment so unique.
Following the 30-minute microdermabrasion procedure the skin is prepared to receive corrective and healing cosmeceuticals. These serums will be applied by the aesthetician performing the treatment and aid the effects of the procedure. Patients can see a reduction of wrinkles, age spots, fine lines and even smooth superficial acne scars with no discomfort or downtime.
According to Dr. Rubaum an ENT Facial Plastic Surgeon and Director of the Laser Image Company in Redondo Beach, "Microdermabrasion is a simple lunchtime treatment used to help cell turnover immediately leaving more youthful glowing skin. "
Microdermabrasion can be done alone or combined with a chemical peel or laser treatment to enhance the results. Dr. Rubaum states, “a combination therapy of laser with microdermabrasion can more then double the effectiveness of the treatment that leads to a more positive outcome for the client. Once the procedure is completed it is very important to protect your new youthful skin with an SPF sunscreen of 30 or higher.”
