Microdermabrasion treatments are the perfect solution for a variety of skin and facial needs. The best way to maintain a youthful, healthy glow is to take care of your skin from the inside out. At Advanced Aesthetics Salon & Medical Spa, we know that a healthy lifestyle can be best complemented by incorporating a skincare routine with treatments designed to provide maximum results.
What Is Microdermabrasion?
This treatment is an FDA-approved, non-chemical, minimally invasive process that is performed by an experienced technician. The results are renewed and rejuvenated skin texture and skin tone. The process utilizes a vacuum wand that is precisely and strategically rolled along the surface of the skin. This wand’s vacuum tip pushes micro-crystals out into the skin and then uses suction to pull everything back in through the wand.
The suction wand features a tip that is made up of the finest, purest crystals: often diamond. This specially formulated tip blasts crystals or diamonds onto the skin to pull out dirt, residue, dead skin cells, and unused exfoliating crystals.
If the tip is not diamond, the crystals are typically made up of aluminum oxide, magnesium oxide, sodium bicarbonate, and sodium chloride. These crystals are selected for use because they are as effective as diamond: and they all leave stunning, clean, and clear results.
What to Expect From Treatment
After a consultation at the medical spa to determine the best course of action for the client’s skin, we will prepare them for a microdermabrasion treatment. As the technician is performing the treatment, many will notice a slight suction sensation as the wand is maneuvered across the skin. Many clients experience a sense of relaxation as their skin is deeply purified.
What Are Microdermabrasion Treatments Good for?
One of the best ways to revitalize the skin is with a microdermabrasion treatment. These treatments go beyond the surface of the face, as they rejuvenate the health and well-being of skin using highly effective and professional techniques that are catered to our clients’ individualized and specific needs.
After treatment, results will reveal a brighter skin complexion and smoother skin tone. The exfoliation reduces the likelihood that the skin will develop comedones and encourages healthy skin cells to renew and revitalize from within.
There are many specific medical and skin conditions that this treatment can help to treat and cure. Many of the most common skin conditions can be alleviated after just one treatment. People frequently seek treatment for:
Healing Sun Damage
Many clients come in with demonstrable signs of sun damage from over-exposure to ultraviolet rays and sunlight. A treatment is often the perfect solution for this condition. The treatment will exfoliate the skin, clearing out oily, clogged pores and blackheads. This deep-cleaning helps to reveal the natural dewy, supple skin beneath the damage.
Many who receive these treatments tout the newfound brightness of their complexion. This bright complexion is caused by the new skin cells freshening up the face after the dead skin cells and clogged pores are cleared out.
Now more than ever the insurgence of sun damage on the skin is a growing problem. From sunny southern states to cooler northern climates, we see sun damage from clients in many different walks of life and from many different geographic regions. Talking with one of our experienced team members about a treatment plan is a great first step in taking control of your skin health.
Treating Fine Lines and Wrinkles
As we age, we all start to notice those pesky little lines that form around the mouth, forehead, cheeks, and nose. A treatment targets these lines and helps to smooth out the skin. During treatment, a sophisticated device is gently run along the surface of the skin, pulling out dead, dry skin cells. The result unveils a soft, hydrated face beneath.
Fine lines and wrinkles are amplified by dull, dry skin. After a high-quality treatment at our medical spa, your skin will feel (and look) radiant and fresh. Fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed out by the sophisticated crystal wand as it rolls over each pore and pocket of the skin.
Turning back the clock on skin health is easier than many people think. At Advanced Aesthetics Salon & Medical Spa, our treatment process clears out the symptoms of aging skin and leaves behind beautiful, long-lasting results.
Evening Out Discoloration
Uneven pigmentation and age spots are a common concern for many of our clients. A treatment can turn blotchy skin woes into a thing of the past. Through a highly sophisticated system that targets areas of uneven skin tone and melasma, treatment at our facility will transform and restore your skin to its former glory.
After treatment, the skin is triggered into a mild type of wound response. A wound response encourages growth and new blood flow. As the fresh blood and skin cells rush to the surface of the face, the skin naturally begins to regenerate and renew itself immediately following treatment.
Depending on the specific skin needs of our client, one of our experienced staff members will work to construct a treatment plan designed especially for the severity and condition of the uneven pigmentation and discoloration. Although most will likely see dramatic results after just one treatment, the best way to smooth out problem areas is with repeated treatment.
Smoothing Out Scarring
A treatment using this technique is a wonderful remedy for symptoms of acne, acne scars, and other types of uneven skin tone. Depending on the depth of the scar, the depression in the pores, and many other factors, treatment may be the most effective solution to create smooth skin for our clients.
While the crystal tipped wand is blasting the skin with fresh exfoliating prowess, uneven skin tone and scars melt away into smooth, even texture. This effective treatment is made for impressive and long-lasting results.
As the wand reaches the dullest layers of the skin, it encourages the skin cells to regenerate skin that is fresh, younger-looking, and evenly toned across the cheeks and face. Remnants of acne scars, and scars in general, are no match for this technique.
Collagen is like the building block of the skin. Over time it weakens, causing wrinkles and tired-looking skin. With a diamond-tipped microdermabrasion treatment, deep exfoliation stimulates new collagen production. Skin will bounce back to a younger, more buoyant glow.
Skin is made up of many different layers. While applying lotion and using a face cleanser are popular choices, these options do not always create change in the critical layers of skin. This technique eliminates these concerns as the vacuum wand is specially designed to target the regenerative layer of skin that renews collagen, creating a radiant complexion from the inside out.
To see the best outcomes, our clients discuss their specific concerns and goals with our experienced staff members. Our treatment is designed to create long-lasting results that will give confident, radiant skin to each and every one of our clients.
Blackheads are one of the most common and stubborn skin concerns in today’s day and age. As the skin is exposed to a variety of elements and oxidative stress throughout the day, blackheads can form in hard to pinch pores and in corners of the skin.
When sebum builds up in the hard to reach areas of the face, a blackhead may form. This blackhead may completely or partially clog the pore and cause uneven skin tone, enlarged pores, and, in some cases, physical discomfort.
A microdermabrasion treatment can effectively and easily clear out stubborn blackheads for our clients. The strong vacuum wand will easily pull oil and debris from even the tightest corners of the face. Proponents of this treatment are consistently satisfied with the high-quality clarity of their skin following a treatment.
Polishing the Skin
Many who receive this treatment do so before a big event in order to look and feel their best. This is a great way to achieve a healthy glow before a wedding, a big date, a job interview, or any other significant event in life. We take pride in being able to provide our clients with beautiful skin and confidence for their events and life obligations.
If a client is booking a treatment as the finishing touch before a significant event, we typically advise them to book the treatment a few days before the actual event date. This will give the skin some time to cool down and eliminate any residual redness that may come up.
Giving a few days after a treatment is also encouraged, and important, if it’s your first time trying this technique. If it is the first time you’ve had a deep exfoliation treatment, talking with one of our professional staff members can help us to prepare a strategic treatment plan that best suits your goals.
No Recovery Period
Although the skin may show some redness immediately following a treatment, a microdermabrasion treatment at Advanced Aesthetics Salon & Medical Spa has virtually no recovery period. Our clients are back to their normal routines as soon as the treatment is completed. This makes this technique a great skincare solution for busy moms, working dads, and everyone in between.
Following treatment, a staff member may encourage the application of certain lotions or oils, depending on your specific skin type. For some with naturally dry skin, the best way to avoid dry and flaky skin after treatment may be a lotion or cream. These will have an amplified effect on the skin as it is at its most clean and clear.
Unlike many other surgeries and procedures that may leave a client in recovery for days or weeks, this treatment will not require any significant recovery time. At our medical spa, we understand that our clients are busy with their own lives and often need to be ready and on the go.
Who Should Receive Treatment?
Regardless of whether you have oily skin, dry skin, or combination skin, anyone can be a great candidate for this type of treatment. The benefits of clearing out dead skin cells and deeply exfoliating the skin are wonderful for any skin type and any walk of life.
Receiving treatment can have many benefits beyond the extraordinary skin results. Those benefits include:
- Joy in practicing self-care
- Increased confidence
- A heightened sense of well-being
