For many, winter can drain the skin of hydration. Scrubs can cause more drying and pore-clogging heavy creams can intensify already irritated skin.
Microdermabrasion is an exfoliator that can treat a variety of skin issues and understanding proper exfoliation is key for hydration to work.
The accumulation of dead skin cells, sebum, product and make-up blocks pores and prevents moisturizing products from actually working. Unlike everyday products, microdermabrasion removes several layers of the epidermis in one session, and will allow your moisturizes to do their job.
Since most microdermabrasion treatments last from 15-30 minutes they are not a time consuming procedure making them convenient to fit into your schedule. Although noninvasive and fast, microdermabrasion does leave the skin vulnerable, so cold weather months are a wonderful time to start a session of treatments.
What else can Microdermabrasion do?
It can naturally boost production of collagen and elastin. Skin does repair itself, but as we grow older we produce far less of the collagen that keeps us looking young. Regular microdermabrasion treatments can be an effective method in advancing the production of these proteins in the skin. In the Summer, your skin can develop dark spots, fine lines, sun damage, and deeper scarring due to all the time spent in the sun. Microdermabrasion can erase the damage of months past and get you motivated to keep sun safe and on a regimen to clearer, brighter, smoother skin!
