Summertime has arrived and there are countless individuals looking to achieve glowing summer skin to pair perfectly with our bikini. A healthy dose of Vitamin C coupled with some necessary SPF can be a recipe for healthy, luminous skin, perfect for those summer beach trips.
Our summer skin care routine may require moisturizers loaded with SPF, and the salty sea water and sandy beaches work wonders as a natural skin exfoliant, leaving us silky and smooth. But we’re here to tell you that taking your summer skin care routine one step further will make all the difference in your long-awaited summer tan. Although we have the ability to self-exfoliate in the comfort of our own home, lifting away our outer-most layer of dead skin, no store-bought product can deliver the results of a professional-grade microdermabrasion treatment.
What Is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a safe, effective, non-invasive skincare treatment that works to improve the appearance, texture and color of the skin. Whether you’re dealing with sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, acne-prone skin, freckles, age spots or light scarring, microdermabrasion is one of the most popular and painless skin care treatment.
How Does Microdermabrasion Work?
Microdermabrasion works by removing the top most outer layer of the skin, further stimulating cell turnover and pushing the body to produce its own collagen. By stimulating the elastic tissue found beneath the skin's surface, this treatment will leave you with firmer, healthier looking skin.
What Areas Of The Body Can Be Treated With Microdermabrasion?
We recommend microdermabrasion as one of our summer tips for skin care because it can treat parts of the body that are more often exposed in the hotter months.
Microdermabrasion can be used to improve the skin on the following areas:
Who Can Benefit From Microdermabrasion?
Many individuals that suffer from certain skin conditions will benefit from microdermabrasion treatments. Anyone experiencing the following is recommended to undergo skin resurfacing treatments to achieve effective results and improve overall health and appearance of the skin:
- Age spots
- Blotchy, discolored skin
- Acne and superficial injury scarring
- Excessive whiteheads and blackheads
- Oily skin
- Keratosis Pilaris, also known as “chicken bumps”
Microdermabrasion is non-invasive, pain-free and requires no downtime after treatment. Our technique is more gentle and effective than other exfoliating systems that are dialed to a higher setting. The number of treatments needed to achieve optimal results vary from person to person and your specialist will tailor your treatment schedule to your specific skin care needs.
Microdermabrasion works wonderfully on its own but can also be used to compliment chemical peels for further skin improvement. Results from this treatment are gradual and most individuals experience smooth, softer skin after one treatment. Freeing your skin of redness, irritation and particle contamination is now easier and more comfortable than ever. Microdermabrasion is one of the few summer skin care tips we live by, leaving you with healthy glowing skin all season long.
