What is Microdermabrasion?
First, there are 2 kinds. The original is a crystal microderm that uses suction and tiny crystals to abrade the skin. It can be messy! You may find OTC microderm scrubs that use these crystals in the formulation.
The second kind is diamond-tip microdermabrasion. This uses a tip imbedded with tiny diamonds to abrade the skin with suction to suck up dead skin cells scraped off by the diamond tip.
I use diamond-tip. It can feel like a kitten licking your face lol. It's a little rough and has suction but does not hurt in the slightest.
Microderm can help with surface roughness, texture of skin, lightening scars and lessening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles (as seen on my photo).
Its a physical exfoliation that goes deeper than a manual scrub. I often use it before an enzyme to get an even deeper exfoliation. It gets rid of the surface dead skin cells and clears the way for better product penetration.
If you would like to try microderm at your next appointment just let me know! Otherwise it's included in my Advanced Treatment Facial! Message me to book yours today!
