All about Microdermabrasion Facial Treatment

If you’re a skincare fanatic, then I’m sure you’ve heard about Microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion treatment is everyone’s favourite technique for deep and thorough exfoliation. 

What is Microdermabrasion Treatment? 

The treatment name translates to scraping of the skin, but simply Microdermabrasion treatment will deeply exfoliate your skin. A professional will remove the outer layer of dead skin to reveal new and supple skin. 

When receiving Microdermabrasion, your aesthetician will use a handheld machine. Two types of microdermabrasion devices can be used during the treatment: Diamond or Crystal. Whatever stone your therapist uses, the device will buff out the skin and vacuum up the dead skin. These machines should not be confused with the microdermabrasion tools advertised online! 

Whilst we’ve referred to it as a facial treatment, you can receive Microdermabrasion all over your body; neck, chest, hands and back.

The thought of a deep exfoliation using a diamond tip may sound unappealing, but it can be a relaxing treatment if carried out correctly. So, not only is Microdermabrasion relaxing, but the treatment is also very beneficial for your skin.  

Why is Microdermabrasion so Popular?

In the same way, you are encouraged by skincare experts to cleanse, moisturise and apply sun protection, you need to be regularly exfoliating! 

When exfoliating at home, it is recommended to exfoliate your skin at least once a week but no more than three times. Due to the in-depth nature of Microdermabrasion, you should only get the treatment once a month to reap the long-term benefits. 

Microdermabrasion can benefit your skin by:

  • Evening out skin tone and texture
  • Lightening scarring from acne
  • Targets age spots and other signs of ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles
  • Brightening dull complexion
  • Minimising the visibility of larger pores

These results happen as the treatment encourages new cell growth through exfoliation.

We recommend those interested in Microdermabrasion get the treatment every 4 to 6 weeks.
