What is a Microdermabrasion Facial?

Many people are bothered by certain signs of aging such as dullness, wrinkles, brown spots, acne scars or sun damage. Some anti-aging treatments can be rather invasive and risk severe side effects while spa facials don’t always provide the best results. Face & Body Boutique offers microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive, non-surgical skin treatment that can be used to improve mild sun damage and the overall tone and texture of the skin. It uses a machine to remove the top layer of dead skin cells to reveal silky, smooth skin.

How does it work?

Microdermabrasion is an innovative technology that uses tiny crystals to exfoliate the top layer of skin. This layer of skin is made up of dead skin cells and can emphasize the effects of sun damage and aging and block expensive serums and moisturizers from absorbing properly into the tissue. As the crystals are applied to the skin they are removed along with the dead skin cells with a vacuum suction device. After the treatment, an ultrasound device is used to apply a regenerating serum which allows it to penetrate deep under the skin. This will leave your skin silky smooth after just one treatment.

What to expect?

After an in-depth  consultation with your provider, a treatment plan will be made depending on your goals for your skin. The skin  will be cleansed and the  device is pressed against the skin in sweeping motions along each part of the treatment area. A very mild prickling sensation can be felt from the crystals. A medical grade serum is applied after using an Ultrasound machine in order to help further stimulate collagen
and elastin production. The ultrasound machine helps the products to penetrate deeper into the tissues.

Who is a good candidate?

Everyone! Microdermabrasion facials can be performed on all skin types and is safe for all skin tones. If you are unhappy with your skin and signs of aging but nervous about invasive procedures like lasers or chemical peels, then microdermabrasion is a great solution for you.  Call Face & Body Boutique for a free consultation to make a tailored and individualized treatment plan for you.

Is there any aftercare required?

There is little to no downtime with Microdermabrasion facials.  The skin may feel slightly sensitive to harsher serums so it is advised to avoid products with Retin-A, tretinoin, glycolic acid or salicylic acid for a few days.  There can also be minimal redness that lasts for 1-3 days.

Is it safe?

Microdermabrasion is very safe as it does not involve chemicals, injections or surgery. Our providers are highly trained and specialized in this treatment.
