The changing seasons can wreak havoc on that beautiful face of yours. One of the most popular medical facial treatments, which is also one that we get many questions about, is microdermabrasion. We’ve contacted the skin gurus over at Facelogic Essential Skincare in Ohio for the quick 101: What’s micro? The treatment here uses a diamond-tipped machine combination to scrape away the outer skin layer, revealing the beauty that lies beneath. Does it hurt? Not at all! During the treatment, there is just a slight tingling sensation that feels like your face is getting a gentle vacuum. What happens next? Here at Facelogic, you will receive a cooling masque to calm the skin (think aloe.) What are the results, and will I see them immediately? Your skin might look slightly flushed immediately following the procedure, but this is only temporary. You’ll be glowing in no time. (And, pssst, down the road it may save you a trip to the plastic surgeon.) Want to see more? Check out our Microdermabrasion Video – we captured the whole thing on Live Spa TV at The Mezzanine Spa in NYC. The clinical explanation: Microdermabrasion is a mini procedure that involves the skin being “sandblasted” by aluminum oxide crystals, baking soda, salt or corn cob granules to remove the stratum corneum (top) layer of the skin; dead skin cells. Microdermabrasion also promotes the production of new cells in the basal (deepest) layer of the dermis. Microdermabrasion may not give everyone the same results, but it is a nice treat and requires no down time. Microdermabrasion thoroughly cleans pores and hinders future breaks outs if used on a regular basis. Microdermabrasion also stimulates collagen networking to even out skin texture and appearance. A series of microdermabrasion treatments can help reduce the look of fine lines and superficial wrinkles, remove thickened skin areas due to the impact of environmental factors and reduce the appearance of blemishes caused by sun damage. Additionally, microdermabrasion can reduce the appearance of open pores by unclogging sebum (oil) build-up and eliminate white and black heads.
