Are you young at heart? Looking and feeling great requires a healthy diet, exercise and good sleeping habits. How we feel can sometimes be impacted by what we see in the mirror. Turning back the clock can feel like a daunting and impossible proposition. The good news is that you can peel back the years and feel younger with microdermabrasion facial. Virginia spas, in particular, Avi Day Spa of Great Falls VA, provide advanced facial treatments that are a cost effective solution to more expensive cosmetic surgery options.
How does a microdermabrasion work? The treatment uses a minimally abrasive product that is applied to the skin. It gently sands your skin, removing the thick and uneven outer surface layer. A microdermabrasion facial treatment will reduce:
- Age Spots
- Black heads
- Fine Lines and Wrinkles
- Enlarged Pores
- Scares from Acne
Microdermabrasion is a terrific exfoliation treatment that removes dead skin cells and even stimulates a new collagen layer. Collagen is a protein, which provides that taut and smooth youthful look. As kids, we have plenty of collagen but as we continue to age, this wonderful protein diminishes and in doing so, leaves us with looser, uneven skin tone.
Microdermabrasion vs. Dermabrasion Treatments
There are two very important distinctions between these two treatments. Microdermabrasion is a milder sloughing of the skin using a non-chemical and non-invasive procedure performed by a licensed esthetician. Dermabrasion is a medical treatment initially developed to improve acne scars, pox marks and scars from accidents or disease. It’s generally safe for people with fair skin. For people with darker skin, Dermabrasion can result in permanent scarring or discoloration.
A licensed dermatologist or plastic surgeon performs the Dermabrasion procedure with a special instrument to sand the surface of your skin. Anesthesia is required and there is a recovery period.
Risk vs. Benefit
Microdermabrasion treatments are moderately priced and a great first step at turning back the clock.
