Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure used to renew overall skin tone and texture. It can improve the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, acne scarring and other skin-related concerns and conditions. For instantly smoother skin, a Diamond microdermabrasion facial uses a combination of vacuum suction and diamond encrusted tips to lightly abrade the skins surface, producing a deeply exfoliating and polishing skin treatment.
Vitabrasion is an intense facial treatment incorporating Microdermabrasion & Vitamin Infusion. By combining these two treatments the skin is re textured with the Microdermabrasion and then high potency vitamins infused by a sonophoresis machine. Great for skins that feel they need a deep exfoliation and lacking vibrancy, shine, illuminous skin.
What to expect after microdermabrasion
There is little to no downtime after microdermabrasion. You should be able to resume your daily activities immediately.
Keep your skin hydrated and use gentle skin care products. Avoid using topical acne medications for at least one day after treatment. It’s extremely important to protect your skin with sunscreen.
Your skin can be more sensitive to the sun in the few weeks after the treatment.
You can expect to see noticeable results immediately after the procedure. The number of microdermabrasion sessions needed will depend on the severity of your skin concerns as well as your expectations.
Your therapist will likely design a plan for the initial number of sessions, as well as periodic maintenance treatments.
Microdermabrasion Side Effects
Common side effects of microdermabrasion include mild tenderness, swelling, and redness. These generally go away within a few hours after treatment. You might be advised to use a moisturizer to minimize dry and flaky skin. Minor bruising may also occur. This is mostly caused by the suction process during the treatment.
