The elements can be harsh on your skin, especially during the winter months. The air outside is cold and dry, and the air inside is dry from having your heater on. Moisturizer at home is great, but if it’s too thick, your pores can get clogged, leading to breakouts. If you are looking for a great way to give your skin some much-needed TLC and a radiant glow, microdermabrasion is for you! Call us today to schedule your microdermabrasion appointment: 703-705-2100
Learn More About Microdermabrasion
What is microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive treatment that physically exfoliates and peels away the top layers of dead skin from the epidermis. It works by using crystal or diamond tips to gently remove the dead skin and a vacuum system to remove the outermost layer of skin. It then infuses top-of-the-line serums to renew your skin and lock in the moisture for a radiant smooth glow!
Are you a good candidate?
You are an ideal candidate if you want to treat sun damage, minor acne scarring, uneven skin texture and so much more. If your skin is feeling dull and lacking that dewy look, this is the treatment for you! Microdermabrasion is also great for preventive care as we age and helps fight free radicals throughout our day-to-day life.
The benefits of microdermabrasion
● Reduces superficial acne scarring
● Reduces fine lines
● Helps with enlarged pores
● Stimulates collagen production
● Improve overall skin texture and tone
● More rejuvenated skin
Microdermabrasion can also be used effectively on other parts of the body, such as the arms, to treat keratosis pilaris, which is a collection of small rough patches and bumps.
During and after the treatment process
Treatment usually lasts an hour and can be paired with other facial treatments such as chemical peels to allow deeper penetration of products. Microdermabrasion is safe and customizable for most skin types and Fitzpatrick scale – there is little to no risk of hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation. It is a painless and chemical-free treatment with no downtime. Results last a few months, when paired with the right home skincare regimen based on the recommendations of your aesthetic specialist. Although it is a painless treatment, you may still experience slight redness and sensitivity afterwards, so it is important to ALWAYS apply sunscreen, stay hydrated, and avoid active ingredients for a few days like retinol.
For long-lasting results, it is best to have a treatment every few weeks depending on your main concerns to achieve and maintain beautiful skin.
Can I have Botox and microdermabrasion together?
Absolutely you can have microdermabrasion and Botox at the same visit! Injectable treatments will not get in the way of your skin rejuvenation regimen, and they will complement each other and enhance your facial beauty.
