Microdermabrasion is a mini procedure that involves a powerful exfoliation by aluminum oxide crystals, baking soda, salt, sugar or cob granules to remove the top layer of dead skin cells. This exfoliation technique is coupled with light suction to clean up excess skin congestion leaving polished, clean skin behind. The procedure is virtually painless and offers positive effects for every skin type.
If used on a regular basis, Microdermabrasion can clear pores and amp up collagen production to improve the overall elasticity and texture of skin without irritation. This procedure can also lessen the appearance of sun damage and shallow scars.
Costing anywhere from $75 to $200 per treatment, Microdermabrasion has become a spa staple and can often be tacked on to any facial treatment. Most spas also offer package deals for Microdermabrasion, giving clients the option of discounted rates if purchased in a series.
And, a series is recommended for the best possible results, especially when dealing with acne-plagued skin.
