Microdermabrasion is the process of using tiny crystals to exfoliate the skin and then drawing out debris and impurities with suction. It uses no chemicals and is not invasive. The procedure removes the dead and dry outer layer of the skin’s surface to reveal fresh, healthy skin underneath. It rejuvenates the surface, resulting in a brighter complexion. It works in two parts. Firstly, a machine utilizes tiny crystals to gently exfoliate the surface of your skin to remove the dead skin cells, while a vacuum sucks the removed skin cells and debris away. Microdermabrasion is suitable for all skin types and colors and will not cause scarring or color changes. Treatments vary by skin type and what you want to achieve. Using steam to open up the pores to allow extraction, scrub or peel to remove dead skin cells, massages to relax, drain toxins and stimulate circulation, and the application of a mask to firm, rehydrate or brighten, are typical. If you’re a serious glow-getter your facial might use high tech as well as hands-on treatments to give your skin a boost.
