What is Microdermabrasion Facial Treatment?

Basically, this skin care high tech process involves spraying small crystals onto your facial skin. Then, we remove the crystals by mechanical suction which removes all your dead skin cells.

In other words, it’s a non-invasive process using tiny crystals to remove dead skin cells from your face.

Removing the top layer of skin from your face causes your body to think you injured yourself. It quickly replaces your lost skin cells with new healthy cells. Usually, the whole process takes around 30 minutes.

Marie Claire states that Microdermabrasion changes the elasticity, clarity, and your skin’s texture. Highly recommended for people between the ages of 35 to 50.   

Other Benefits of Microdermabrasion

Besides some benefits mentioned above, Microdermabrasion stimulates blood flow. This increases nutrition’s delivered to your skin cells. Thus, improving cell production leading to your skin elasticity and texture improvement.

Also, it helps reduce the appearance of acne scars.

People with clogged pores, fine lines, and uneven pigmentation benefit from a series of Microdermabrasion treatments.

Dr. Heidi Waldorf, MD an Associate Clinical Professor of Dermatology at The Mount Sinai Medical Hospital in New York City describes Microdermabrasion as an excellent procedure. It makes “skin feel smoother, helps pigment look even, and speeds up the clearance of whiteheads”. Source  

How Safe is Microdermabrasion?

As long as you use an experienced, qualified professional to apply the tiny crystals on your face and gently remove them the process is completely safe. Just don’t try doing it yourself.

Does Microdermabrasion Hurt?

Microdermabrasion does not cause pain. But, it does leave the skin a little red and a little sensitive for a few hours. As a result, professionals recommend applying a calming moisturizer or sunscreen after treatment.

Who Shouldn’t Try Microdermabrasion?

People with skin conditions like eczema, rosacea, active herpes, sunburn, open sores, lupus, widespread acne, fragile capillaries, and psoriasis should not try Microdermabrasion.

Difference between a Spa and At-Home Microdermabrasion

According to the Huffington Post, two major differences exist between an office and at-home Microdermabrasion procedures. The equipment used by spas and offices uses larger motors with more power for deeper skin penetration than the at-home kits.

That’s why making an appointment with us at Ellada Studio & Spa provides you with better and more powerful Microdermabrasion equipment.
