Imagine the sound of thousands of tiny crystals. In your mind, does it sound something like this?:
Now imagine that these thousands of tiny sparkling crystals are being sprayed across your face, decreasing any fine lines and smoothing away weathered skin. Another name for this is Microdermabrasion.
Microdermabrasion is a controversy-free, highly recommended non-invasive facial treatment by experts and clients alike.
What is Microdermabrasion?
At Lasair Aesthetic Health, we describe Microdermabrasion as a “mechanical” peel, which leaves the skin softer, smoother and more refined. This is achieved by spraying a fine stream of tiny crystals over the surface of the skin with simultaneous suction. These actions combined, remove the dead epidermal layer, which corrects many superficial skin imperfections and stimulates collagen production to restore a more youthful, refined appearance. Microdermabrasion can improve many skin concerns; aging or dull skin, large pores, oily or acne prone skin, uneven pigmented skin, finely wrinkled, and sun damaged skin.
What are the benefits of Microdermabrasion?
1: You can do it on a reasonable budget
Microdermabrasions are affordable and we at Lasair Aesthetic Health often offer them to our clients at particularly affordable prices during our monthly specials.
2: Extractions really work!
Getting rid of blackheads is really difficult, and at-home treatments often just aren’t up for the challenge. Extractions are the most effective way to get rid of blackheads for good. Typically, estheticians steam open pores and then unclog them using their hands or a special skin care tool under a bright light. Just don’t try this at home: estheticians use special methods and tools that keep redness down and prevent dirt and oil from re-clogging pores.
3: Professional tools = professional results
No amount of face scrub is going to equal the exfoliating power of microdermabrasion. There are two types: crystal microdermabrasion, which exfoliates skin with a fine spray of crystals, and diamond-tip microdermabrasion, which involves a sloughing wand to scrub away dull, outer layers of skin. Diamond-tip microdermabrasion is the gentler of the two and best for sensitive skin. And keep in mind that other spa tools, like the steam generators that pros use to loosen up clogged pores, are more powerful than at-home versions, too. And spa-quality skin care products are made with higher concentrations of active ingredients that penetrate deeper and work better than anything you can buy over the counter.
